To help separate the social media wheat from the chaff, the PF&H team have shared their favourite sources of things you might like to read, watch and listen to, so you only get the very best content on your feeds…
PF&H Co-Founder and Sports Scientist
📸 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.
Professor Ross Tucker and journalist Mike Finch offer credible insights and strong opinions on a range of sports science questions and topics.
🎥 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.
📧 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'
🏃🏻 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)

Head of Athlete Support
📸 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... 🤔)
👂🏻 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.
🎥 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.
📧 _Email: [Endurance Essentials](https://feelthebyrn.substack.com/?kx=) __
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.
🏃🏻 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.

Head of North American Operations
📸 On the 'Gram: @mikemrun
I’m the oldest person in the company and I’m constantly learning from and being inspired by my younger colleagues. My most inspirational follow on Instagram is someone who's actually older than me though - just look at Mike Millen and you'll see why!
🎧 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.
🎥 YouTube: Swim Smooth
Swim Smooth do a great job providing swim stroke analysis and advice. A superb resource, whatever your level of swimming experience.
📧 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.
🏃♀️ 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.
