Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Getting really grumpy about triathlon * Grumpy Old Coaches

October 13, 2021

It’s been a while coming but finally, the Grumpy Old Coaches are back in the hot seats for another round of anarchy and bitchiness about things we see that just make us…..well, grumpy.

  • Steve gets hot under the collar about ‘junk miles’ and why there is no such thing in cycling
  • Simon gets stuck into the ludicrous concept of recovery runs for triathletes
  • Marc goes off on one about HIT training and then periodisation
  • Everyone gets really grumpy about fad diets
  • Steve loses his cool when we discuss running technique
  • The over-focus on FTP and Vo2 max causes one of the team to explode

As you can probably tell, we had a great time recording this podcast. We’ll be back with another episode at Christmas. If you’ve got topics that you would like us to get really grumpy about, send your ideas to
