TriSpecific's | The Fat Black Podcast

Today we have serial Fat Black podcast guest Steph Lowe on and we have a chat about so many things nutrition. As per usual, there are a few rants - of course there are! But it's purely because we care and want to stop the self-imposed pain... 

Always a pleasure chatting with Steph and I am excited to see her new program, LCHF Endurance... Make sure you check out her LCHF Endurance FB account (below) and for those non-Vegans, the Chicken abundance bowl looks fab. If you're vegan, simply sub the chicken out. 

I trust you’ll enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Why the macro number is not set in stone
  • Being SMARTER about what you're doing
  • Macros and what they look like
  • Vegan LCHF
  • Why you should test your gut (or your poo) before bloods
  • Fruits... They fit in with JERF
  • Falling in love with the process
  • Why a percentage is better than a number
  • The NCHF mistake (made worse by doing NCLF)
  • Intelligent fuelling
  • Why you don't need to start the LCHF journey with macros
  • And so much more

Today I have Jocelyn McCauley on the show. I met Jocelyn McCauley at the daylight mind cafe in Kona this year and we tried to get a podcast done in the craziness of race week. It didn’t happen, but we finally got there.

Jocelyn started the sport of swim bike run in 2013, in fact, she registered for her first 70.3 and shortly after found out she was pregnant. Well, she trained as much as she could and 11 weeks after the birth of her daughter she completed Muncie 70.3 in under 5 hours!

She went on to do her first Ironman and qualified for Kona. And in her second IM, she added IM World Champion to her name and first amateur female. Her first IM pro win was Mallorca in 2016 and then she won IMNZ in 2017 and ran a smoking 2:59. 10 in Kona this past October … This mum is the real deal and we speak about her trajectory and her lessons as a 2nd year pro. Many of these lessons we should heed.

I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did interviewing Jocelyn. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

- Self identity 
- Pro and AG - it's a different race
- Logistics of racing with a 3-month-old
- Her trajectory in the sport and how athletic background matters
- Fitting it all in being a mother and wife
- Visualizing 
- Making it and keeping it fun
- Her Jekyll and Hyde personality
- Breaking down her Kona race
- The 10 things she learned as a 2nd-year pro
- And so much more

Today I have Simon Whitfield on the Fat Black. Simon shouldn’t need any introduction, however… For those that don’t know. Simon won the first Olympic gold in Sydney 2000 and in this interview he tells how he believes he got a leg up on every other competitor well before the course was even set. He won that event after going down on the bike with 14 others and worked his way back. I remember sitting in the stands with Charlotte watching that live and thinking damn near 2 hours is a long time to be racing. Who would’ve known some 17 years later I'd be having a conversation with Simon. Ahh, the poetry of life. 

Simon also won silver in Beijing a gold at the 2002 Commonwealth games among so many other medals was know for having a great kick in the finish straight. One of my favorite ever finishing pictures is the one above by the legend that is Dely Carr of Simon outsprinting Brad Kahlefeldt, Jan Frodeno and Kris Gemmell to the line at the Hyvee race for $200K… Absolutely Rivetting.

I really enjoyed my chat with Simon and especially why having and cultivating your imagination is so important.

Anyway, I’ll leave it at that so you can fully enjoy. There's some big life lessons in here.

 Today I have Dag Oliver - the GM of Norseman Xtreme triathlon on the show. Dag DNF’d his first triathlon back in 2005 due to a broken handlebar. Like all of us was bitten by the tri bug, but as most of us go deep into racing and competing, Dag went into race directing, to the secretary general of the Norwegian triathlon federation, to splitting his time between his relaxed sports photography business and the IT department of the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee.

He is a busy man but one that is passionate about the sport and you can see how this shines through and how he lives the core values of Norseman.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • How Norseman rekindled the love of triathlon in Norway
  • Enticing the Germans so as to bring out the Viking spirit
  • What has made Norseman Xtreme tri such a success
  • The core values and how they make Norseman what it is
  • The biggest mistakes Dag see athletes make at Norseman
  • How having support makes the Norseman experience richer
  • The value of good planning
  • Getting it all done whilst being so busy
  • And so much more
