TriSpecific's | The Fat Black Podcast

Your best will never be enough unless it’s always enough – David Roche

Today I have my run coach David Roche back on the podcast talking about their book (which is available now) which in my mind is required reading for all of us endurance athletes. The book might be using running and being a happy runner… you can just change running for Triathlete or cyclist or whatever. Charlotte and I got lucky and got an advanced copy… and Charlotte even got a quote on the back cover of the book! I’m so thankful we go an advance copy as it greatly helped me leading into my 110k race here in Whistler and then for my recent 100 miler. It wasn’t about Part two of the book on running principles but part one… running happy principles. A major one about self-acceptance and ultimately the results matter but they don’t matter.

As always enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

Momento Mori, why talking about death matters!

What’s really important to get results

What self-acceptance means and how it helps

The reason to decide now!

Why hitting your life performance goals can leave you depressed and not fulfilled

Cutting others and yourself some slack

Depression

The dangers of room temperature

Why the parts that suck are super important parts of the journey

How happiness is found in the atmosphere of growth

Being enough doesn’t depend on a race result

The striving for the result matters more than the result. the striving is the fun part.

And  more

So this is an episode I recorded after my 100 miler whilst down in California. We were staying with good friends Sean & Tiana Rockwell in Grass Valley and we always talk about loads of topics on nutrition and hormones etc. I got a handy new zoom pro4n recorder so we sat down in her office talking about a topic that is rarely discussed.

Tiana has been on the podcast before - episode 201, you can check that out - Tiana is an endurance athlete, dark chocolate lover, and a certified nutritional therapy practitioner who believes that real food can balance the body and produce personal record sports performance. 

Now this one is for the ladies. But guys… This is a topic you probably want to understand a little more too.

Today we are talking about menstruation and why it matters, we talk expectations and why and how to support the different phases of your cycle.

As always enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The basics of the 28-day cycle
  • What happens in each phase
  • When the best days are for performance
  • Expectations
  • When it's a great time to race
  • Negatives of trying to control your cycle
  • High hormone and low hormone phases
  • Strategies of racing around your cycle
  • And  more

I’ve been off for a bit, focusing on my 100 miler and recharging the batteries. So today I’m talking with Charlotte about complexity, simplicity and reducing the noise that is hurting your results. I also wrap this up with lessons from my 100 miler.

As always enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • A bit about Kona
  • Why complexity is creating noise and hurting your performances
  • How to develop your tolerance to uncomfortableness
  • How not to let your devices and toys become oppressive dictators  
  • My 100 miler race reflection on how I can improve - lessons! 
  • How to create more self-doubt or more self-confidence 
  • Why acceptance and knowing you are enough is critical to success
  • And  more
