SHOW NOTES:

BIO  – school / work and athletic 
What is sport psych / mental skills 
Who do you typically work with? Who can use a MSC?? 
   – do you see much interest from other ‘high performers’ ? (Business etc.)
How can a masters cyclocross racer use sport psychology?  (visualization example, goal setting etc.)
Dean  Asks: 
Basically, anything that can be expanded on with respect to an athlete that has plateaued and is lacking mental motivation to be active would be helpful.
If an athlete has a big goal 8-12 months away (win nationals, fast time at a triathlon, loose 20 pounds etc.) What do they do today? (Habits?) 
What is a first step to reaching a goal? (or new years resolution). How does an athlete decide where to start?  
What are common missteps when athletes have time and a big goal? 
Is there a way to motivate daily goals or habits?  (pairing with other? reward? … what works in your experience?)

SHOW NOTES:

0) What is Marco Up to? 
2) Marco’s run training
3) What is new with the HRV4Training app? 
– Training Peaks Interaction
– new acute changes analysis that lets you investigate most acute stressors tracked in the app, not only training, but also alcohol intake, menstruation, traveling, etc. http://www.hrv4training.com/blog/analysis-of-physiological-changes-in-response-to-acute-stressors
4) Studies published with HRV (and the app)? 
  -> ecg-hrv-h7 -> do you need to use a heart rate strap to measure HRV ??
5) What can we say HRV can do? Can’t do
– measures physiological stress
– normal cond. bpdy positions
– George asks: Saw that you had Marco (HRV4) on your podcast. Wondering…. What is the relationship between fatigue and HRV?

– “use hrv to guide plan, not to make a plan”
– what is normal?
6) Things to do once you have data in the app … What are ‘bad’ things to watch for… how to use the data ?? 
  *Coach app desirable range fits here but also what can a normal user do?
7) Discussion of the 3 studies and what it helps to show/prove / move-forward? 
   -> I am curious why the high acute: chronic alone didn’t suggest a risk for injury? I suppose this is due to adapting better (i.e. HRV not disrupted)
8) Vo2 estimation -> how to setup and get it working?

SHOW NOTES:

Update from last time
  – time off
   – journaling style
   – what like when return ?
2) Lindsey asks:
 I would love to hear more about his tech retreat and what his time away has helped come up with this year ?
3) Skill courses update 
  – how sign up RyanLeech.Com
   – what get for membership ?
4) Carl Aks
I think a great topic is a difference between skills training with a local coach and online.
5) Elaine asks: 
Discussing potentials between competency in a skill vs mastery? Many of us get frustrated too quickly, and at the same time sponges for learning.
6) Jeff asks:  would love to hear him discuss his equipment, and recommendations for us mortals– particularly bike geometries and set up (shock settings, short vs long chain stays, head and seat tube angles, wheel sizes, etc) and how they relate to trail riding and technical skills, such as manuals, bunny hops, and wheelies. To take this further, it would be great to hear what ‘type’ of bike(s) he would recommend for those of us hoping to at least have proficiency at the techniques he is teaching online, but can only have ONE bike instead of a stable full. I realize that a lot of this is personal preference, but for the average non-pro, those preferences are often influenced by LBS recommendations, friends, pros, etc, and I would bet many of us end up struggling with some skills because of this. A pro can be amazing on anything they throw a leg over, but most cannot.
6) Yoga — changing life
