Today we have fellow Specialized athletes, Michelle and Katy Duffield joining us on the show. Not long ago, these two fast ladies became the first Aussie twins to qualify for Kona (as age groupers) and have since begun their pro-careers, racking up some impressive performances to date. The girls join us today to chat about what it's like racing at the pointy end of the female AG field and taking the big leap into pro ranks. Mim and Katy are class athletes with great attitudes and plenty of wisdom to share for age groupers.

In today's episode we discuss:

  • Being the first Aussie twins to race Kona.
  • Dealing with setbacks and how to stay positive.
  • Staying focused on your own race (when your sister is performing better on the day!)
  • Learning from mistakes.
  • Developing the right attitude.
  • Why giving back is so important.
  • Who inspires the twins to race.
  • How to be a better age grouper.

Jon happens to be the first person we ever spoke to in the world of triathlon as he was the then president of Brat Tri Club when Charlotte and I were looking at triathlon. We got to know JP over the years but it was only recently that I got to know what he does for a living.

Today I get to speak with JP all about the brain and how we can use it to get the outcomes we desire. Pete and I are fascinated about this stuff because we know it’s an area of untapped potential. Not just for our sporting potential but our potential in living a life well lived.

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • The simple model of the brain
  • Why we need to be able to effectively communicate to self and others
  • Emotional intelligence
  • When things go wrong
  • Fixed versus growth mindsets
  • What practice becomes
  • And why repetition is the mother of all skill

In today’s episode they discuss:

  • What is the PTU
  • How the PTU started
  • The PTU as a work in progress
  • The grand slam idea
  • Education and mentoring - helping pro’s be more professional
  • A Code of Conduct for professionals
