Episode 11: Pioneers, Innovators and Co-Founders of Stryd Gus Pernetz and Jamie Williamson talk about the prospects of the running power meter.

To call these guys pioneers and innovators isn't overstating it. Gus Pernetz and Jamie Williamson join Dave to discuss Stryd, the world's first power meter for running. Head over to the Stryd Blog and read about some of the happenings at this small but powerful Boulder, CO start-up.  During this discussion, Dave, Gus and Jamie talk about the benefits of running with a power meter. How they are using them today, how they can and likely will be used in the future, the differences between training and racing with heart rate on the run versus with power, among other great things.  Gus and Jamie were forthcoming with their answers, were straightforward and very honest about where they are with Stryd. We over here at Octane think these guys are really on to something. People 15 years ago thought that training and racing with power in cycling would be a passing fad. It clearly isn't and neither will this. Give the podcast a listen, then check out the following great write ups about Stryd: DC Rainmaker spends some time with Stryd WIRED Magazine on Stryd Competitor Running on Stryd Stryd Kickstarter is LIVE NOW!

Episode 43: Keeping endurance dreams alive through injury, free training plans online, and Chupacabra. Stay until the very end!

Warning: the last 2 minutes is probably rated somewhere between PG-13 and NC-17. We chopped up some of the edits from the episode to give you a flavor for the warm up conversations that happen before we record and how easy it is to distract us and to turn Mike into a cackling hen of laughter. In this episode we discuss Dave’s Doctor’s Despicable bedside manner (not really), training with knee injuries, the value of coaching, free Online Training Plans, and the elusive CHUPACABRA.   The discussion about the knee stemmed from a post-op diagnosis from Dave's doctor that “Your knee will only be 70%.”  Does this mean: 70% Range of Motion 70% Strength 70% of the Cartilage Dave didn't ask while in the moment. The boys then discuss four really great ways to train with a knee that is less than 100% and how to keep Dave’s long course dreams alive with in-depth discussions of strength training, recovery methods, alternative workouts, and varying training loads to minimize the impact of running.   Mike nearly has an aneurism caused by an epic rant on the subject of saving money by not hiring a coach.  We explore the logic (or lack of logic) of athletes who spend thousands of dollars on equipment, race entries, magic pixie dust supplements and travel while searching for a free Ironman training plan online.   Finally we look at some of the free plans offered online and discuss items every athlete should consider when evaluating a training plan.  Support the Fuel Your Fire Podcast PLEASE RATE THE FUEL YOUR FIRE PODCAST HERE Like the Facebook Page Follow Us on Twitter Follow Us on Instagram Follow Dave on Twitter Follow Randy on Twitter Follow Mike on Twitter Support the Podcast by doing your shopping on Amazon.com.
