The Age Grouper: Triathlon Podcast
Summary: This is The Age Grouper Triathlon and Multisport Podcast. Join Jeff and Eric, two regular 30-34 year old triathletes from the heart of the Midwest, in the kind of conversation that only age-groupers can appreciate. We explore the everyday issues that we face as swimmers, cyclists, and runners. If you're part of any age-group, you've found the right podcast!
It’s 2015 and like Marty McFly, we’re ready to strap on our self-tying barefoot-style shoes and jump on our hover-bikes for the season! Eric and Jeff recap their mileage totals for 2014, both real and commuting then sit around the campfire as Eric regales us with tales from Ironman Chattanooga 2014! All this and more on The Age Grouper!
It’s an old-fashioned live race report as Eric and Jeff travel to the Tri Right 101 century ride. We catch up on what’s been happening throughout the summer and what’s left for the season. Will Eric be ready for Ironman Chattanooga, we’ll see!
It's the show you've been waiting for! We find out the results of the epic wager, did Eric complete the Lumberjack 100 or does he owe Jeff a steak dinner? Plus, ITU racing, a paleo update and one of us may be moving to sunny Colorado…!
It’s part 2 of 2, the all Eric show. Eric tells us all about his plans for 2014 (which should make for a quick show!) that includes Ironman and mountain biking. What? Mountain biking? Yep! There might be a friendly wager involved too.
We're back to wrap up 2013 with this all new mega episode! In part 1 of 2, this is the all Jeff show where he tells us all about his 2013 triathlon season, unexpected injuries, new foot ware and his new diet - the paleo diet. That's right, no more carbs for this paleolete!
We're back at the new Age Grouper Studios North with a special, and precious, guest host! We go over the long awaited results of Jeff's face-off at the Chase Corporate Challenge then break down training for an olympic distance event in detail. Take it from Eric, you need to have faith in your abilities! And we finish things off with some triathlon lingo.
Looking to break that multi-decade old 5K PR this year? Well you’re in luck, we break down the secrets to successful speed work in this super-sized episode! It all comes down to if you want to race fast you need to train fast.
We get back to basics talking about single speeds and fixed gears on this episode of The Age Grouper. Plus, has anyone ever asked you for advice on doing their first triathlon? We have, plenty of times. We offer our take on how to guide first-timers through their first races.
What sort of international endurance-sport media frenzy would be complete without interjecting our opinions into it? Because no issue is ever truly over-hyped until we weigh in on it! As promised, we’re back and we won’t disappoint with this performance enhanced episode. We offer a paltry explanation (again) about where we’ve been all these months, discuss our latest training regimes, including my new secret weapon - Insanity, then tackle the Lance Doprahstrong crisis head on. Believe me, it’s worth the wait!
Dean Hewson is back as our fearless leader for Age Grouper training camp 2010. Eric and Dean are taking off to Arizona for a week long training camp and tell us about their plans and blueberry pie. Plus the infamous lightning round and extended Ironman distance training advice.
At long last the corporate sanctions have been lifted and we have been allowed to release this show! Dr. V, a real bionafied- certified sports medicine doctor, joins us to provide some actual medically sound advice. She has been the physician helping me with my knee pain and now is here to help all of you. But first...we check in with Mark from Runner's High 'N Tri for some winter hydration advice.
And we're back with our first re-run ever. We’ve been getting so many requests for this episode, originally aired February 2008, we just had to re-run it. We take you step by step through the process of planning your entire training year. From Macro to Mezzo to Micro cycles we cover it all.

For some reason we feel the need to review events from 2009 yet again and then we play television critics concerning NBC's lackluster coverage of the 2009 Ironman World Championships in Kona. After that we lay down our plans, or lack-thereof, for 2010.
It's time to put away our 2009 training logs and crack open a new one for 2010. We reflect on all that has happened over the past year. Also Jeff reveals the prognosis for a nagging injury he has had for several months. And we revisit our thoughts on what we have learned from triathlon. Do you ever quit?
Do you have the M-Dot ink? Do we? We reveal the mystery about our experience with the M-Dot ink. And we review 2 nutritional products: Hornet Juice and Infinit Nutrition. Then we get deep and discuss how our love for triathlon has changed our lives. How has it changed yours? We want to hear from you!
