Joe Friel: The World is Changing
In this interview, I met Joe in Kona, Hawaii where we were both visiting for the 2014 Ironman World Championships. we discuss a number of topics including new research in periodization, nutrition & training, how he organizes all of his research, the role of curiosity in his professional life, Pete Jacob’s use of a power meter in his training and racing for Ironman, and issues of the aging athlete. “Fast after Fifty” is Joe’s most recent book as of this writing, and was released shortly after this interview. I hope you enjoy our conversation!

Todays episode is from the “lost files” from my trip to the 2014 Ironman World Championships in Kona. I thought I had lost SIX different interviews I had done, and thankfully I was able to resurrect them. After listenign to this conversation with Joe, I’m so glad that I did. His advice and commentary on triathlon training is timeless.
