TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

It may be lucky that I slept on my thoughts before Pete and I recorded this podcasts. If I'm honest, I guess I was pretty ropable the night before and definitely toned it down for this podcast. However I have a post in the works thats needs to be posted - stay tuned.

The mistakes keep coming and they are simple to avoid and even rectify if we just use those two things on the sides of our heads. They're called ears in case you're wondering ;) 

In Today’s Episode We Cover:

  • No carbs.
  • Sodium - this has been painted in the same light as Fat and as an endurance athlete you NEED way more then you may think. Fat adapted or not.
  • Habits - how to create news ones that stick.
  • Some K Rants... as I say above you get off pretty lightly ;) but maybe I should just let loose?
  • Rote learning and why it's important.
  • What ONE thing you NEED to do to get success in any goal. And how much depends on the difficulty of the goal. 
  • The art of looking where you WANT to go and where not to look when you're suffering.

A few weeks back I got to speak at an event in Squamish, Canada with a couple other experts in their respective fields. One of them was Sylvia Rayner who was absolutely captivating in the way she spoke about the mind and how much potential we have locked up inside our heads. I knew within a couple of minutes that we needed to have Sylvia on a Fat Black podcast.

In Today's Episode We Cover:

  • What clinical hypnosis is and how it can help us in our sports and life
  • How you get behavioural change
  • Why you must stop playing the victim
  • The key to success
  • Why repetition is important
  • Self Hypnosis
  • Sylvia even takes us through a mini session and I tell you it's crazy how it works
  • And much more.

Earlier this week we listened to a great podcast from the guys at Spartan who interview Scratch Lab inventor - Dr. Allen Lim.

For years Allen Lim worked with Tour de France teams and has learned a lot about working in high pressure situations and how to develop performance. In a sport that focuses so intently on marginal gains, Lim argues that athletes should be focusing less on the 1% and more on removing bottlenecks from our lives. This gives way to a much better focus and performance.

So today we are discussing the bottlenecks that we see in the sport and how to solve them.

In Today's Episode We Cover:

  • Understanding marginal gains.
  • Underestimate the value of making better decisions on a daily basis.
  • The "Never Miss Twice" rule.
  • Understanding your Rate Limiting Factors.
  • Seeking to create better habits.
  • The bottlenecks we see in triathlon (and life).
  • Becoming a solution creator.
  • Learning to have fun.
  • We also discuss some important and very relevant aspects of the movie "Fed Up" (you need to watch this film!)
