TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

The clock is doing its thing ticking down to the start of the 2017 Ironman World Championships. The vibe is electric and you can feel the nerves mounting.

Today I have my brother from another mother Scott Jones on the podcast. You can find an interview I did with Joneser on the Triathlon World Summit at FB160 this episode is often quoted as a favourite. Joneser is a winner in life… this guy packs more into life than most with more responsibilities in life than most (he’s a rear admiral of the US Navy and a commercial pilot, loving husband, father and kick ass athlete).

We talk about Kona and how to race well out here and we also cover the ageing athlete. Joneser always comes out with nuggets of pure gold. Listen with your ears peeled back.

Enjoy.

Today I’m speaking with Jesse Kropelnicki again - Jesse was on the podcast recently FB227 but this time we are chatting at the QT2 systems house in the calm away from the chaos and we speak about Kona from the things to focus on IF you are racing to a strategy for what it takes to get here and race.

Simple but not easy, but isn’t that typically the case…

Enjoy.

Today I’m speaking with the plucky Aussie Greg Welch. Better known as Welchy. he really doesn’t need an introduction but for those, who for some reason do not know who Welchy is… he is the charismatic Aussie and the first Aussie to win here in Kona back in 1994.

I got the pleasure of sitting down at the Oakley house here in Kona with Greg and having a very quick conversation before the party started. There’s a bit of background noise but honestly who cares. We are in Kona sitting by the ocean chewing the fat about the race.

Good times.

And if you are here in Kona, go check out Oakley’s new helmets and glasses. They are pretty sweet.

Enjoy.

Today we kick off the Kona special with Kona local and swim legend Karlyn Pipes. I’ve had Karlyn on the podcast back in episode 140.

Karlyn is a swimmer, swim technique coach, author and inspirational speaker. She has established more number one rankings than any other Masters-level swimmer in history and was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015.

Do yourself a favour and get her book The Do Over - an inspiring story of her do-over from early swim success to addiction and then recovery through swimming.

This year she has been on a tear in masters swimming and I got lucky enough to have a swim session with her in her endless pool yesterday which had me focused and playing around in the water in today's Ho’ala Ironman Worlds Champs training swim.

Her swim lessons also come packaged with metaphors for life.

My conversation with Karlyn will help you become a better swimmer. And if you happen to be on the Big Island reach out to Karlyn via her contact page at Karlynpipes.com. You won’t regret it.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Deconstructing and reconstructing my swim
  • How to swim the Kona Ironman
  • One of the worst pieces of advice given to get your hips up
  • See the fishes, hear the fishes and talk to the fishes and why you’ll want to do this in open water swimming especially in Kona.
  • Why you don’t want to finish your stroke
  • Rolling - being on your side is not faster
  • Finding quiet power
  • Contrasting your swimming to SEE and FEEL the differences
  • Why you DO NOT want to be feeling the water
  • Scissoring your kick is only the ‘symptom of the disease’
  • Warming up for Iroman
  • Why Karlyn writes KNOW on her hand/arm in competition
  • Where to start depending on how you breathe
  • Finding space in the turns at the buoys
  • And so much more goodness.

Ok, today I have Denis Mikhailov on the show. Denis is not a triathlete but he definitely IS an athlete and his big wall climbing adventures definitely fall into the endurance category and he has much to share. 8-14 odd hours out in the elements, working out the puzzle of performance to get to the ultimate destination. That puzzle includes the fitness and strength required to get the job done, not to mention fuelling and Denis’s path led him to create nomad nutrition and of course that mental fitness is so key. All of which we discuss on the show.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Deconstructing performance
  • Why structure is so important
  • Your next performance breakthrough comes down to your mental training
  • When you have to get out there
  • Zen Archery
  • The process of coming back mentally from a scary fall
  • Food equals health
  • Why he went raw vegan and the day he gave it up
  • The morning ritual
  • The need to create great adventure food
  • His book recommendation that is not a book.
  • Ingredients matter
  • The REV dry process to preserve food and keeping it as it should be
  • The biggest food myth
  • And so much more

Today’s guest is coach Jesse Kropelnicki who is the coach of two past professional athletes guests - Angela Naeth and Linsey Corbin.

What I like about Jesse and why he has had so much success is that it’s not just about the training. When things go pear-shaped most peoples knee-jerk reaction is “it must have been the training” - when most of the time it’s simply some other limiter that is getting in the way of being able to leverage the training. These limiters are typically daily nutrition, or race fuelling, race execution or simply the athlete's mental fitness is not there.

We get into the nitty-gritty in this conversation and as usual, there are great lessons that can help you in your quest to be a better athlete.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Managing your mental space for high performance
  • Why context in any situation matters
  • There is no balance
  • The strategy to fixing your limiters
  • The foundations of performance
  • Unorthodox training methods
  • Setting up your environment for success in training, business and in life
  • Durability and why that is a key ingredient
  • The critical system you need in place
  • The stress budget and why you need to understand this
  • And so much more

Today's podcast is my conversation with pro triathlete, Angela Naeth. And let me tell you, we get deep and Angela really lets it all out there. This makes it so special - we all have ups and downs and the best of life’s hurdles to overcome. Angela shows her vulnerability but it also shows that that is the true path and the reason why we should truly be ourselves.

Angela grew up here in beautiful British Columbia, Canada and is known in the tri world for her powerhouse of a bike. She is a multiple 70.3 Champion, twenty-five 70.3 podium finisher, Ironman 2014 Chattanooga Champion (her third Ironman) and the 2015 North American Ironman Champion and had gone sub 9 twice.

Angela has a Masters degree in Physical Therapy and Bachelors in Health Sciences… and in her quest to give back she has created this great women's triathlon/cycling community iracelikeagirl.com which gives her the opportunity to support others in the sport of triathlon. 

I really enjoyed this conversation with Angela and I think you will too…

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The coaches she's had, (including Chucky-V, Mark Allen, Sutto and current coach Jesse Kropelnicki) and the invaluable lessons 
  • The value of sacrifice
  • Why simplicity rules
  • How RedBull changed her life
  • What it takes to be an endurance athlete and what it takes to be pro
  • Becoming a pro today versus in 2008
  • Belief and being yourself
  • Stress
  • Her injury journey and getting through it
  • The biggest obstacle
  • Where age groupers screw it up (mostly)
  • A book everyone needs to read. 
  • The best advice she has ever received. [KM - This is it! Solid advice for all]
  • And more.
