Dirk Friel, U.S. Ski Mountaineering 2020 Masters Champ, Former Pro Cyclist + Coach, and Co-Founder TrainingPeaks On Shifting Gears & Goals and Thinking Like An Olympian

Dirk Friel is the U.S. Ski Mountaineering 2020 Masters Champ. He is a former pro cyclist and has raced the classics such as Het Volk and stage races such as the Tour Du Pont and the Tour of Malaysia. Dirk has top-ten placings in both the U.S. pro road and criterium championships. He is also a sought after cycling coach, and Co-Founder of TrainingPeaks, the ultimate training tool and digital platform for athletes and coaches to plan their training, set goals, measure and track data and progress. It’s compatible with over 100 fitness apps and devices. Whether you are an experienced athlete using your favorite app to record workouts like you Garmin, Apple watch, Zwift, Strava or you are a newbie looking to try something new, all of your workouts are uploaded to Training Peaks for you to view, manage, and analyze.

I sync up with Dirk on how TrainingPeaks began, what inspired the company’s proprietary training metrics, scientific tools and methods that have become the industry standard like TSS®, Training Stress Score®, IF®, Intensity Factor®, NP®, Normalized Power® and VirtualCoach®. I get an inside look at how TrainingPeaks has revolutionized the way that coaches and athletes track, analyze and plan endurance training.

Dirk shares where his journey into athletics, pro-cycling, and coaching began.  He offers some great cycling tips and advice, new training goal ideas for COVID Times, and of course we talk mindset and motivation.  Going from indoor to outdoor cycling and technical things you need to know, Power VS Aero Position on the Bike, Virtual Bike Fittings , Shifting Gears with training and goals, Seasonality of our Bodies

We talk about TrainingPeaks podcast, Coach Cast, which Dirk is currently hosting for Season 2. Dirk tells me about the sport that is currently fueling him for success, Ski Mountaineering, for which he is now the U.S. National Masters Champ, as of 2020, which he earned in early March at Aspen Power of Four.

Colleen Brough, PT, DPT, MS is the Director and Founder of Columbia RunLab, a premier running performance lab offering a highly-specialized running analysis experience for Olympic, elite, competitive, and recreational teams and runners.  Columbia RunLab offers state-of-the-art, in-depth evaluation and education for runners who want to optimize their performance, help prevent and manage injuries.  Originally from the New York City area, Colleen is a lifelong athlete and avid runner and has  been an active member of New York Road Runners and Front Runners New York.

Dr. Brough is an Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine at CUIMC in Columbia University’s Programs in Physical Therapy . She is an orthopedic specialist certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists with over 15 years of clinical and teaching experience.  She teaches Applied Physiology and lectures on Orthopedics in the Columbia University Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy.

On this episode, I sync up with Colleen about where her journey into physical therapy began, the pivotal moment that shaped her career, the path that led her to running, and the inspiration behind Columbia RunLab. We talk about her strategies for injury prevention and boosting run performance, her philosophy around rehabilitating runners while keeping them moving, the mechanical hallmarks of runners that are prone to injury, and do a deep dive into foot striking + ground contact angles, knee flexion and overstriding. She offers insight on DIY at home running analysis tactics that are easy to follow, how you can recognize your mileage and pace tipping point, discover the mechanical issues that may be driving your injury, and a few ideas on how you can  optimize your running performance.

Columbia RunLab prides itself on student development and community outreach as part of its program. They work with organizations that support restricted access, underserved and special-needs running groups throughout the community to provide this clinic experience free of charge. Students from the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Doctor of Physical Therapy Program are rigorously selected as part of an elective class for the opportunity to support Columbia RunLab. They are a faculty practice of the graduate Programs in Physical Therapy in the Department of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

Jonathan Toker Ph.D., Founder Saltstick® & Elite Athlete On Electrolytes, Hydration and Fueling for Life

Jonathan Toker, Ph.D., is the Founder of Salstick® and Toker Engineering, LLC. He is also an elite level trail runner and triathlete, former pro triathlete, with his Ph.D in Organic Chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute and is the Slowtwitch Science editor.

For Jonathan, It all began in mid-2002, as a long-distance professional triathlete competing in long distance triathlon races, he grew weary of taping electrolyte capsules on his bike top tube. One race in particular, it was raining and his capsules turned to mush except the section under the electrical tape he used, and while he managed to finish that race with some salt in his system, he decided there had to be a better way to hold and dispense capsules, Saltstick® was born in 2006 and is now sold in over 40 countries around the world

On today’s episode, Jonathan and I are talking about the importance of hydration and electrolytes during endurance sports, everyday activities, and how Salstick®  is helping treat patients with chronic illness.   Jonathan turned his passion for endurance sports and chemistry into a career that he loves. I hope you enjoy this conversation. If you like what you hear, leave us a review on Apple, DM us on Instagram, and email Marni at marnionthemove1@gmail.com and tell us what you love.
