The Endurance Specific Podcast

5 years... Can you believe the Fat Black podcast is 5 years old? Truth be told, the podcast is 5 years old as it originally started as 'The TriSpecific Podcast" on June 15, 2013, before morphing into "The Friday Fat Black" in November 2013, but this episode marks the 5th year that I've been putting out podcasts. Pat on the back.😆 

Charlotte and I are again talking about performance. I should probably stop calling it the performance series, because each time we do a show, there will be topics and advice that can lead you by the hand to getting better performances. Today we cover a number of things, but after seeing a bunch of post-race debriefs, being around races and conversing with athletes we see a lot of self-sabotage. Not all of this is conscious by the way and we are going to help you stop doing these things and ultimately lead you (if you choose) to become a better athlete.  


  • Why post-race debriefs can improve future performances
  • Race day nutritional sabotages
  • Planning
  • All races can be A- Races
  • Practicing something never practiced
  • And more
