TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

 

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
