TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

This week I chat with the smash fest queen Hillary Biscay. 

 

We had Hillary on way back on episode #114 talking all about the art of suffering. But this time on the back of two 'smash fest' camps we talk all about her journey of becoming a plant powered athlete. 

The downs and then how this 60x Ironmaner, Ultraman and Ironman Champion had her career best results as a plant powered athlete. 

Grab yourself a tasty beverage and enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The catalyst
  • Underestimating nutrition
  • Overdoing the refined carbage
  • The protein myth
  • Common mistakes, mishaps and lessons
  • Farting
  • And more candid conversation

This week I chat with TS LIFER, and king juggler Tim Corbett.

Tim is happily married 5 time Ironman has 5 kids and juggles family, business, coaching and competing. Right now Tim should be a 6x IMer but his most recent one in stunning Taupo NZ was done in dusted in a sub 10min time (something we discuss in the show).

He has a passion for making Ironman training and competing, family friendly helping ‘normal’ mums and dads become Iron-parents.

With a background in sport science, behaviour change and marketing, he is the Director of Thinking at Deep Limited, a specialist health advertising and marketing agency. Tim looks to mix research with real life experience so doing Ironman not only makes you fitter and faster but a better mum or dad. Your legs will only take you so far, it’s your heart that gets you across the line.

A strong believer in the power of the team, he believes Ironman should not be pursued as an individual sport but as a chance to grow communities.

His wife, Catherine, is a strong believer in the power of the ‘weapon of mass distraction’. Expensive, shiny pieces of jewellery that ‘distract’ from the pain of watching, waiting and dealing with the whining.

Grab yourself a tasty beverage and enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • Weapons of mass distraction
  • Why you need to know your partner! 
  • Ironman training spin offs
  • Doubling up and how it's a key to making it all work.
  • Significant supporter tips
  • Why we're privileged 
  • The right type of bank deposits 
  • Smart insurance
  • And more candid conversation

TS LIFEAs I mentioned I’m turning 40 on Saturday… and I’m going to be bring that big 4-0 in with a 40km trail adventure here. I was excited to see some dirt trails again last week, but alas we are back in snow… So it will just add another element of awesome.

And since it’s supposedly a big mile stone and I’ll only be turning 40 once. I pretty much giving away a year's access to TS LIFE for 40% off. Access to everything TS LIFE has to offer has never been this low. And yes there’s a catch - As soon as I’m done my 40km run, showered, had some nutrient dense food… I’ll be turning off the discount code.

So go to http://www.trispecific.com/tslife and put in code "happy birthday" and that will take a whopping 40% off your entry to TS LIFE. And everyone that joins will be getting a little extra gift from me.

Even if you have access to the TWS recordings, I recommend you re-listen to this as there are some great take homes that you can choose to use and improve how you show up in the world. 

Enjoy.

This week Kristian sits down with Travis McKenzie. A fellow Aussie living thats also made Canada home and has a big goal of leaving an to leave a legacy of extraordinary impact on the endurance sports industry. Trav left his dream job of running world class events for Lululemon to scratch his own entrepreneurial itch, thus gain sleepless nights and all the other challenges that go along with that. But there is definitely always a gift in the challenges we face. In 1992 at the impressionable age of 10, Trav ran down the Ironman World Champs finish chute with his old man which solidified a deep life long passion in endurance sports - both partaking in them and creating some exceptional events along the way. 

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The highlights reel
  • His time at Lululemon and the BIG lessons
  • Arriving at this point in his life
  • The 3 simple but most effective traits of those that taste lasting success
  • The parallels between business and sport 
  • Making the committed decision on getting to Kona 
  • A life changing bike accident
  • On finding your inner voice
  • And more

This week Kristian virtually sits down again with Dr Phil Maffetone to discuss fitness and health. How they don't always share the same bed and that endurance athletes aren't getting heart issues so much due to partaking in these immensely rewarding and enjoyable pathways but more likely how they're are going about them. As athletes we aren't immune to the typical yet avoidable western diseases - and these diseases necessarily increased due to the fields we play on. So today we get down to whats truly important, so you can live life big and be healthy whilst doing it. 

Enjoy. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The big picture is not being looked at
  • Why we need to change the terminology
  • High fat burn equals less symptoms
  • What your % of fat oxidation is versus sugar burn all the way up through higher intensities
  • Why people die from preventable diseases
  • The international cuisine and why it's sad
  • Low grade inflammation
  • Were not finding the causes due to our want of the quick fix
  • And more
