Episode 48: Matt Fitzgerald II

Episode 48: Matt Fitzgerald II

On this episode we interview author, coach and nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald. Matt is currently taking part in a fun experiment where he’s training in Flagstaff, AZ with the HOKA NAZ professional running team leading up to the Chicago marathon. It’s something he’s called a transformation that he thought was impossible at his age. What’s it like to train with the pros under the tutelage of Ben Rosario? Is it intimidating? How is it different than what he’s previously learned and why is it so effective? We also talk depletion runs, living with Matt Llano, chasing a marathon PR, cross training methods, 80/20, his diet down in AZ, power meters, coaching, nutrition plan for Chicago, his fitness rise and unfortunate setback and SO MUCH more! I missed the 1st Fitzgerald interview so I couldn’t wait to speak to him this time around and we spent a lot time talking about this fun experiment. As a bonus, after the interview Sean and I throw in some UTMB commentary as well! Hope you enjoy..

We interview the author of the book, “Your Best Stride”, Jonathan Beverly on Episode 45. Often times we interview big names in the running world or shoot the breeze on Splits episodes, this time we offer more of an informative episode about a popular yet complex subject for what we do: running form. And Jonathan Beverly breaks it down in a way for runners of all skill levels to understand. We talk about how sitting has ruined our posture and how to correct that, the role of the glute and how the very powerful muscle is underutilized with most runners, the hip flexors and their very important role in our running form, what exactly is good posture, 2 myths when it comes to running form, postural endurance, whether gadgets are providing too much data, how a good arm drive looks and MUCH more!

Hydration plan for the Mary

tailwind-nutrition-15

I’m trying something completely different for my 5th marathon.

I’ve converted over to Tailwind. For a long while I’ve heard and seen the hype about it. You know how when you hear about something for the first time from a few people, but don’t know much about said thing, your first instinct may be to dismiss it and think to yourself “yeah sure, the heck is that stuff” – pretty much how I felt about it at first. I thought, if it’s so good, then why aren’t more runners using it aside from during Ultras?

I also thought how could one NOT get hungry on a long run by consuming only liquids?

Then, like most similar examples, you eventually give it a whirl and either grow to like it or continue your other ways.

At some point I had to try it in my ongoing quest to solve my GI issues. Damn poopie monster.

Prior to giving it a try, my previous experiment was trying out Honey Stinger. The labeling sold me. There was a lot of bad stuff in most Gels. This is what made Honey Stinger products stand out – its simplicity in ingredients. All of the natural goodness it had to offer.

One thing I’ve always liked about gels is the reward factor. I looked forward to having it every 4 miles and it acted as a treat of sorts. It also helped get through the grind of a long run, knocking 4 mile chunks off at a time represented by a gel.

And at first, Honey Stinger worked for me. Or so I thought. I even enjoyed the Vanilla flavor as someone appropriately described the taste as Vanilla frosting. Yum. I quickly realized how thick the consistency was, and during cold weather days, unless you kept one in your glove (like a forward thinking runner might), it was even worse.

Last year I tried vFuel, which I absolutely loved and supported. The consistency of their gels was perfect. They advertised toward people with stomach issues. The only thing missing from their product was sodium and I’m a big salt sweater. I took salt stick on the side with it. I think I still managed to have GI issues with vFuel but not nearly as bad as other gels out there. Thinking back, I’m not sure why I gave up on vFuel. Maybe the desire to try something new. If this Tailwind experiment doesn’t work out, I’d give them another try. Their flavors were delicious too.

Before this gets too long, I’ll get into Tailwind some more.

I gave it a shot on a few long runs. I bought the sampler pack they have available with 7 different flavors. That’s the best approach, I figured. Try ’em all and find one you love.

On my first long run, I kind of goofed up the process. You’re supposed to constantly sip on it. Well, not constantly, but frequently. They say one packet is good for an hour. And 1 pack works with a 20oz bottle. I think it’s good for 16-24oz. So I loaded up both of my bottles in my vest up and gave it a shot. At first, I was waiting too long to sip. Then, on the back end of the long run, I switched to my caffeinated packet of Tailwind and holy moly did I get a boost. Not only that, I wasn’t hungry at all. And I learned how to properly do it; sip every quarter mile.

On my next long run of 19 miles, I did it right from the get-go. Once again, no hunger issues and plenty of energy.

This turned out to be so convenient for me. I hate fumbling with gels and their wrappers (don’t litter, folks!) and putting them back in my pocket and getting all sticky.

We’ll see how it goes for the marathon. I did have some issues at the Grand Island half but I think those were unavoidable. A topic for another day.

My plan is to load up my 2 bottles, and I’m going with my 2 favorite flavors – Manderine Orange and Raspberry Buzz. Then I’ll bring 2 more servings worth (since I bought the 30 serving bags, I have to get creative and store them in something I can quickly transfer to my water bottles when the time is right).

I also plan on taking in plenty of water at the stations they have lined up every 2 miles. It’s going to be hot, humid and I can’t even talk about it or I’ll freak out. The point is, it’s going to be very important to stay hydrated.

Note: This is not an advertisement or endorsement of any kind. It may work, it may not and I will be honest about it afterwards.
