This week, We come back at you with over an hour on the World Cross Country Championships in Aarhus, Denmark. We totally fanboy out this week. You can find links below & race predictions as well.

Saturday, March 30th - Aarhus, Denmark - See the podcast shownotes for our predictions.


This week, Steve is solo talking about Grab Bag Sessions. What are they?

“Go To” workouts that can easily be done anywhere, on any surface, at any time in a training cycle.

Track, road, trail, treadmill? All are very easily implemented. These workouts provide a bang for the buck. Most of these sessions can be completed in 60 min or less, making them excellent for travel & tight turnarounds. No excuses for not getting your training session in.

Periodization proof - These are very important sessions that stress different physiological systems & can be done repeatedly to good effect.


In this episode, your hosts take a deep dive into the practical art of visualization, or mental rehearsal for both training & racing. This mental training technique is frequently cited but less often implemented, so we walk you through the reasons why, the processes involved & give details techniques to help you use the power of you own mind to impact your training & life.


In the second installment of the FanBoys! podcast, Tomek & Steve discuss indoor track & make an argument for why you should care. We review the 2019 season & give our performers & performances of the season.
