“He’s really fit! They’re going to run really well!” How many times have you heard a coach excitedly proclaim that, only to see their athlete perform poorly? It happens to all of us. We’re left scratching our heads after the race. They were crushing workouts, we might think. How could they not put it together?

In episode 113, we take on the concept of fit, but not fast. As coaches and athletes, we correlate fitness with performance, but it’s not a 1:1 correlation. In the episode, we discuss how to translate fitness to performance, why that disconnect exists, and what we can do about it.
