TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

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.

Today I have a conversation with my ultra running coach, David Roche. David is not only a great runner - he’s the 2016 Way Too Cool 50k winner, the 2012 and 2014 USA Trail 10k National Champion, the 2014 US Sub-Ultra Trail Runner of the Year, a member of the 2014 US Mountain Running Team, the 2015 US Long Distance Mountain Team, and the 2017 US Trail World Champs team. 

David is also great coach, with a strong community and has athletes crushing it over various distances every weekend. (Like Cat Bradley who was one of the 2.5% of people that got a ticket to Western States in the lottery and went on to WIN)  But as the title of his blog spot is… Some Work, ALL Play lays down his life philosophy of having fun. Yes it’s the trials of miles for success but love of the process and understanding that We are stardust with delusions of grandeur. And None of this stuff matters except the memories we make. So DECIDE to MAKE good memories no matter what. There’s a lot to learn in that view point and also loads to learn in my conversation that applies to any endurance sport.

David made this call work off a mountain in Colorado to fit this in, so at times there’s a little wind disturbance towards the end as a thunderstorm was rolling in but it’s all good.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Coaching, Performance and getting the ingredients right.
  • Exposing Talent
  • The trials of miles the miles of trials and why it matters
  • The big reasons of being an athlete
  • The first pre requisite of an athlete so you don’t sell yourself short and allows you to become the best you can become.
  • How to build belief in oneself
  • Comparisons the thief of joy
  • The problem with focusing only on the outcome
  • Depression and post race blues
  • Ego based training
  • Why you need a what’s next
  • And much more.

This week the tables are turned and I'm getting interviewed by non other than my awesome wife, Charlotte Paul. It's more a conversation about my experience of my first 100 mile run race through the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming. Today's podcast is a long one... but you know what, the race was kinda long. 

As per usual, lots of lessons for all of us and I know how much it helps to go over and debrief a race. Because we can always find areas to improve upon. For me, this race was everything and more than I could have hoped for or imagined. 

The day before the race, there was this shop (unfortunately closed) across from the Blacktooth brewery where race registration was and it had this sign - "Today is a good day for a good day" -  it made me smile and I woke up with that in my head on race morning. Positivity IS a performance enhancer :)

Ok, Lets do this.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Why the hell run a 100 miler? 
  • Commitment to the goal
  • The training and getting it done, no matter the weather
  • My 3 goals for the event
  • The road trip down and making the best of suboptimal
  • Not being able to consume food for near 18 hours 
  • Missing my crew at 50k in
  • My organisational mistakes
  • Flirting with hypothermia (again)
  • Being adaptable to what mother nature throws at you on the day
  • The pacing strategy
  • Keeping my head entertained for 24 hours
  • The major lessons
  • Coaches messages
  • It takes a team to succeed
  • The standoff with a Moose

This week I have the first person I ever spoke to in the sport of Triathlon. Teresa Rider was the then partner of John Hill (our first coach) and was a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Teresa proves that you’re never too old to start and etch away at blowing the doors off of what’s possible. She started at 33 years young.

With NO swim background Teresa breastroked her way through her first Triathlon swim. She went on to Ironman and did Kona 12 times with 9 podiums, two of those being an age group World Champion.

Teresa is married to Scott Jones a man I have so much respect for and someone that is like a brother too me. He was part of the Triathlon World Summit and you can listen to his fantastic interview here [FB#160] this is one power couple that is for sure.

I’m stoked to have been part of this amazing woman's journey and she played a massive part in both Charlotte’s and mine for which I have so much gratitude for.

Enjoy this and listen with both ears. A lot of wisdom and knowledge from Teresa. Over 2 decades in the sport, retired healthy and injury free. Success leaves clues.

Lets do this.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • From party girl to triathlete and beyond
  • Developing resiliency and thus longevity
  • Breastroking her first Triathlon to winning her age group in Kona (twice)
  • Why a coach matters
  • A big key to getting fast
  • It's not talent, but you can expose 'talent'
  • You must develop this skill set to have any sort of success
  • Why breaks are good
  • The benefits of this sport
  • Giving back and paying it forward
  • And so much more

Well… there have been no podcasts due to the simple fact of moving back to Whistler and all the craziness around that and then moving in and getting everything done before this trip to Bighorn 100 for my 100 miler.

Honestly I just ran out of time to edit one from Teresa Rider and another from Chris Kelly. They will be out on our return along with a special episode (I’ll keep under wraps) and then once the results are in, a follow up with InsideTracker on my post 100miler bloods.

Ok… so today is just a quick one from musings on the road and a lesson to me and that can help you out

Lets do this. 

 Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Why we need to create urgency for important but not urgent tasks and how it helps your goals including race goals.
  • The importance of scheduling
  • A 'new' goal setting process I'm in love with. 
  • Committing to a goal when there is so much other FUN things to do
  • The best feedback loop that keeps you motivated
