Getting the balance of training and recovery is more art than science sometimes, and can be a complicated process. In the post-Kona whitewash, we have seen quite a few top athletes who (through their own admissions) just didn't get that right on the lead up to the race. We believe this is also a big issue for Age Group triathletes, so today we break down that intricate balance of knowing when enough is enough.

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • Getting the balance right.
  • Training consistency.
  • Recovery consistency.
  • Getting the execution right.
  • Heading the warning signs.
  • The bigger picture; the macro VS the micro.
  • Art and science of recovery
  • Desire/ drive VS intuition and clarity.
  • Weak desire = weak result.
  • Self reflection and self awareness.
  • When is enough really enough.
  • Doing things you don't want to do.

Ahhh Kona. Such a beautiful location that can deliver both pain and glory. This year was no different with plenty of drama and action unfolding throughout the day followed by plenty of celebrations (and possibly some disappointment). Rather than tell you about the winners of the race (you already know that) today we discuss some valuable lessons from the race on the big island, and how you can apply these in your next race.

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • Strengths VS Weaknesses
  • Staying cool
  • Training and preparation
  • Backing yourself
  • Understanding when to push
  • Course knowledge
  • Reverting to your trained state

Today we are talking all things NOISE. Let's be clear, we love this sport and we love the knowledge and passion that is shared throughout the triathlon community. But too much noise leads to distraction, and distraction leads to inconsistency. And of course inconsistency is what stops people from achieving great things in sport. So settle in as we talk about how to manage the noise and help you find some clarity. 

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • The noise of Kona
  • Processing information
  • How the noise affects outcomes
  • What you really need
  • "Talk less, ride more"
  • Following the path
  • Internal and external noise 
  • Training yourself to believe
  • Setting your reality
  • Showing up
  • Dealing with distractions 
  • The best question
