Today Charlotte and I talk about race week. What's essential to stack the deck of race day success in your favor, we go into some Ironman Canada specifics but the reality is, it's all relevant no matter the race you are doing. Last year I did a "how to pace and race an Ironman" with my buddy and coach Patrick Ash which is also a must listen. 

Enjoy.

  • The temps are skyrocketing, so how to adjust for that with fueling, cooling, and pacing
  • Being prepared
  • Dealing with nerves
  • Sleep
  • Our thoughts on a Coffee taper 🤔
  • Riding a challenging bike course
  • What happens if you F@%K it up
  • Race week nutrition
  • Clean your bike! 
  • And more

Today I have my friend, clinical counselor and mental performance consultant Greg McDonnell on the podcast. We've tried for a while to make this happen and at the end of the day Greg came round to our place and we sat down and talked through the stories we tell ourselves. Because honestly, it's those narratives that can either build us up and keep us stuck seeing the same old crap over and over again. 

I know you'll enjoy this one. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The stories we tell ourselves and how they either help or crush us
  • The foundations of these stories
  • Strategies on mental toughness development
  • Why you need Big Hairy Audacious Goals and where you need to then put them
  • And so much more

Today Charlotte and I talk about how thoughts create results. 

This is a really important concept to grasp as it will impact not only your sports performance but also life. 

No, we aren't going all woo-woo on you here. You'll see how you’ve played this out and how you can think better to, therefore, create better outcomes.

Charlotte takes us through a model of how thoughts create results and we give you some solid examples. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The Thoughts to Results Model
  • The question you need to ask
  • Why you dread some sessions
  • If you're not getting results, how to reverse engineer to see what the true causing factor is.

5 years... Can you believe the Fat Black podcast is 5 years old? Truth be told, the podcast is 5 years old as it originally started as 'The TriSpecific Podcast" on June 15, 2013, before morphing into "The Friday Fat Black" in November 2013, but this episode marks the 5th year that I've been putting out podcasts. Pat on the back.😆 

Charlotte and I are again talking about performance. I should probably stop calling it the performance series, because each time we do a show, there will be topics and advice that can lead you by the hand to getting better performances. Today we cover a number of things, but after seeing a bunch of post-race debriefs, being around races and conversing with athletes we see a lot of self-sabotage. Not all of this is conscious by the way and we are going to help you stop doing these things and ultimately lead you (if you choose) to become a better athlete.  

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Why post-race debriefs can improve future performances
  • Race day nutritional sabotages
  • Planning
  • All races can be A- Races
  • Practicing something never practiced
  • And more

How do you get the performances you are after? Well, between guest podcasts I have decided to go all in on giving you all the tools you need to get the race performances you are after, while also not killing your health. Today Charlotte and start continue with the performance series and what you need to do, or develop to become the best athlete you can. The topic of today is that you need to be strong. Triathlon is not just an aerobic endurance sport. In fact, it's a strength endurance sport. You need to be strong. You need to recruit more muscle fibers and to develop triathlon specific motor patterns to help you maintain form under duress. That is how you get your PR's and how you get the performances you dream of. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Why strength matters
  • Low cadence on the bike
  • When to put strength training
  • Fatigue and how it differs depending on the system you are training
  • Strength specific training within the component sports
  • Bike trainers
  • And more

  • Why lying to ourselves is the worst person we can lie to.

Today I have Charlie Jabaley on the show. Who the hell is Charlie… Charlie is a common man that found success at a young age in the entertainment industry. But Charlie had always been the fat kid. As he got more success he got bigger, he was depressed.

He was in a dark place, even when he won a Grammy, even with making a million dollars before the age of 30. He hit rock bottom. He told himself... what a person does in the dark is what he truly is. He left his successful career, his support network… to become the opposite of everything he ever was.

He moved from Atlanta to California. He retired from the music industry to chase his childhood dream of becoming an athlete. Charlie’s story consists of a brain tumor, depression, binge eating, obesity, starving himself, running marathons, gaining weight, becoming vegan, gaining more weight, he felt stuck and He knew everything had to change.

He took 2017 to become the exact opposite of everything he was. He completely turned his life around and now my health is in a diametrically different place. His brain tumor is shrinking. He lost 120lbs and in March he chased the cut off at Ironman New Zealand to fulfill a contract he wrote to himself.

Charlie is now riding across America on his dream machine tour. He still is facing challenges but his on the right channel and changing lives along the way. As he says… His story isn’t over yet.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The contracts
  • Quantum physics and energy
  • Chasing the time cut off at Ironman New Zealand
  • The dream of being an athlete
  • Making his own Nike commercial that went viral
  • Food addiction
  • Mindset
  • On becoming our own superhero
  • Why going bold in life is actually easier than playing small
  • Charlie’s advice on living
  • The dream machine tour
  • What has improved his life the most in the last 5 years
  • CEO Charlie to CEO of his own life
  • And so much more

Enjoy.
