πŸ“Έ On The Gram: @librarymindset

I'm always on the lookout for recommendations of good new books or authors. This account drops ideas into my feed regularly and often sends me down a new and interesting rabbit hole to investigate.

πŸ‘‚πŸ» Pod: The Real Science of Sport Podcast

Professor Ross Tucker and journalist Mike Finch offer credible insights and strong opinions on a range of sports science questions and topics.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: That Triathlon Life

Eric Lagerstrom and Paula Findlay make one of the most well-produced Triathlon-specific YouTube channels and are building a strong community feeling with TTL.

πŸ“§ Email: David Epstein Range Widely

A newsletter covering (unsurprisingly!) wide-ranging topics from the multi-talented author of one of my all-time favourite non-fiction books 'The Sports Gene'

πŸƒπŸ» Strava: Mario Fraioli

Insights into the training habits of a good friend of PF&H who runs competitively as a masters athlete over distances stretching from 1 mile to the marathon. (Oh, and his newsletter 'The Morning Shakeout' is on the 'must subscribe' list too)

James Phillips

Head of Athlete Support

πŸ“Έ On The Gram: @fenella.langridge

Fenella's had a fast rise in triathlon with some fantastic results over the past 18 months. But she's becoming equally as well known for sharing real insights without taking herself too seriously. Plus... she's one of the few people to have one of these (I'm not jealous at all... πŸ€”)

πŸ‘‚πŸ» Pod: Pro Tri News

With a focus on the professional side of triathlon, this podcast covers long and short-course triathlon news in a well-rounded way. It's a great way to catch up on all the recent results when driving or training.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: Red Bull Surfing

Although I'm a recreational surfer, and not overly interested in competition surfing, this channel releases plenty of short series' like 'Life of Kai' and 'All In', which are fantastic to watch during a turbo session.

πŸ“§ _Email: [Endurance Essentials]( __

Gordo Byrn is a favourite read of many of us in the office. He puts complex training and years of experience into very easily digestible emails, which have helped guide my training.

πŸƒπŸ» Strava: Hayden Hawks

He's one of the fastest trail runners, prepping for one of the world's biggest trail runs (Western States 100). I also love seeing his progress with race nutrition in our Case Studies, he's a smart (and very fast) guy.

Sean O'Mahony

Head of North American Operations

πŸ“Έ On the 'Gram: @mikemrun

I spend most of my limited time on social media catching up on all of Brad’s recent updates. Each post is a short, text-based learning that improves your mindset.

🎧 Pod: Life in the Peloton

Mitch Docker retired from the pro peloton a couple of years ago and has reinvented himself as podcaster. He’s a natural and has some very interesting guests from the world of cycling.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: Swim Smooth

Swim Smooth do a great job providing swim stroke analysis and advice. A superb resource, whatever your level of swimming experience.

πŸ“§Β Newsletter: No Dig

What you eat during exercise is important, but it's crucial to have a good diet outside of training and racing too. I’m a big fan of growing my own veg and if you’re lucky enough to have the space to do so, then get all the advice you need from Charles Dowding.Β 

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Strava: Emma Pooley

Former TT world champion and 3x British Olympian Emma Pooley has reinvented herself as a superb trail runner. Plus, she grew up in Norwich, so double points for that.Β

Ant Gritton


πŸ“Έ On the 'Gram: @bradstulberg

I spend most of my limited time on social media catching up on all of Brad’s recent updates. Each post is a short, text-based learning that improves your mindset.

🎧 Pod: Tea And Trails Podcast

Ultrarunners, Gary Thwaites and Edwina Sutton, share their relatable experiences of juggling work and life with sport. They chatted to Andy about hydration and fueling.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: Fergus Crawley

I’m definitely NOT interested in lifting the weights that Fergus does, as my biceps are the width of his little finger! But it's fascinating to see how a 'hybrid athlete' combines being very strong with epic endurance events.

πŸ“§Β Newsletter: Beyond The Peloton

I watch most stages of cycling's Grand Tours, but I'll still devour BTP's post-stage analysis. I particularly enjoy the GIFs that provide insights into how the race unfolded.

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Strava: Robbie Britton

Robbie shares all of his 160km+ training weeks on Strava, giving a unique insight into what it takes to become a 24-hour British Record holder.

Rach Brand

Athlete Support

πŸ“Έ On the 'Gram: @beardthebestyoucanbe

Amir Zandinejad is a mobility coach whose channel provides a daily reminder for me to do more than swim, bike and run.Β 

🎧 Pod: How To Fail with Elizabeth Day

Inspirational conversations with guests who describe the highs and lows of their careers, and they share how they've overcome failure.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: Rapha Films

Their super-stylish films are always an enjoyable watch. One of my favourites from last year was Gone Racing, which followed three riders' journeys through the inaugural LifeTime Grand Prix Series..

πŸ“§Β Newsletter: Voxwomen

A great way to get a round-up of the latest goings on in women's cycling, including insights from ladies in the pro peloton.

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Strava: Christian Meier

I might be biased as I regularly join fellow Girona-native Christian Meier and theΒ Overland Running crew for their hilly 'social' runs. I love getting insights into how a former pro-cyclist-turned-TDS by UTMB winner approaches training each day.

Jack Davis

Head of Pro Sport and B2B

πŸ“Έ On The Gram: @moveu

I enjoy Chiropractor Dr. Mike's unique posts that suggest stretches and exercises to help you enhance range of motion and overcome common injuries.

πŸ‘‚πŸ» App: Calm

As much as I like a good podcast, my number one recovery-focused listen is the Calm app. I'll use this most evenings to help me relax and sleep like a baby... without the waking up in the night, screaming, or πŸ’© myself.

πŸŽ₯ YouTube: Bob and Brad

The self-proclaimed most famous physical therapists on the internet - they provide plenty of videos on how to fix pain. As endurance athletes, this sounds as dreamy as an oasis in a desert marathon.

πŸ“– Book: Peak

This book is my training bible. There's so much great information on recovery, nutrition and emotions. We also work with Marc at the Pittsburgh Penguins and Atlanta Hawks, but I haven't plucked up the courage to ask him to sign my book (yet)

πŸƒπŸ» Strava: Floris Gierman

Floris advocates low heart rate training, and his runs are a consistent reminder for me to slow things down and actually enjoy my runs. This plan often goes out the window at 'runch time' with the team, as I always end up chasing Andy across a muddy field.
