TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

Denmark

TriSpecifics Kristian Manietta & Pete Lever show you that you don't need talent or luck to succeed in Ironman Triathlon. You just need to DECIDE then follow a proven blueprint that's not following the same old dogma and outdated training models. Our driving focus is the minimal effective dose for the greatest possible outcome. The Fat Black podcast covers all topics Ironman Triathlon and how you can improve massively with focus on marginal gains. Basically we are highly performance orientated but we'll show you how to make it enjoyable at the same time.

FB #215 - Dr Simon Marshall  

This week I get to have a helluva fun conversation with Dr Simon Marshall the other half of Lesley Patterson - the sports psych half that trains the brains of athletes and fitness enthusiasts to become happier and more mentally tough. We delve deeper into their new book “The Brave Athlete – Calm the Fuck Down and Rise to the Occasion” and do so in a fun way that just makes you want to roll up your sleeves and get into it. Simon makes the subject really fun and easy to understand. 

I had a helluva lot of fun speaking with Simon and I know you’ll get lots from this. And if you haven’t yet ordered their book. Do it, you won’t regret it but be willing to work to make a huge positive impact on your life. 

Lets do this. 

 Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: We go into the Brain basics, then jump into the heart, the wings and the fight Dealing with obstacles, setbacks and conflict Mirror mirror on the wall... Is it real? Developing battle skills We talk feeling FAT Comfort Zones Why we need love and compassion for ourselves and our competitors The real swim conversation going on in your head Mind viruses Bringing baggage to training, racing and life And so much more training between your ears

FB #213 - Mike Osten  

Today we have a friend, someone I’ve coached in Ironman and someone who supported Charlotte and I back in Australia with Nike. Now Mike may work and love Nike but he is not biased towards the brand in such a way that - no not everyone should run in Nike. In fact in todays conversation we do talk about who the best person is to listen too when it comes to shoe choice. 

We blow the doors off pronation, we talk run mechanics, whats important, the show industry and of course this little project of Breaking 2. Theres a link in the show notes @ trispecific.com that links to nikes page for the live event. I might just be cracking open a beer any 8:45pm Friday night here in Canada.  

Ok lets get into it. 

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: What's important when it comes to shoes and running Run mechanics The shoe industry Shoes and injuries The one thing with running you have to make the one thing Who you should listen to when it comes to shoe choice What pronation is and does it matter How to ensure success in your running shoes How many miles or kilometers you run in shoes Looking after your shoes Nikes breaking2 And more

FB #212 - John Kelly  

This week I get to virtually sit down with John Kelly. The 15th finisher at the Barkley Marathon - which has been going for way more years than finishers of the event. It’s really the end point of ultra running. If you haven’t watched the Netflix doco do it.

John is a husband and in his words to an incredible wife, the proud father of 3 kids under the age of 3 (the latest addition are twins) - he works as a data scientist in a start up in Washington DC and he runs, bikes, hikes to support his ability to do his job with a clear mind. And he does swim but only because he likes to race and challenge himself in triathlons.

John is racing Kona this year and after his recent Barkley success and the amount of interviews his had.. I did not want this to be another same same interview focusing on the Barkley. No, I wanted to dig deeper and have a conversation around making it work with a very young family (shows how real communication allows it to work), and how he uses his commute to do hie training. How he got the necessary elevation training done in an essentially flat area, his training, the mental differences between ultra running and racing Ironman and some really great stuff on goals.

I really enjoyed this conversation and there are many take home points that if implemented will not only help bring out the best versions of ourselves but make us better athletes.

Ok lets get into it.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

- The benefit of adapting your goals in the race
- Developing the confidence to keep pushing when things go south
- Lessons of self
- The 3 priorities when setting goals
- Getting it done in a time compressed environment
- The mental differences between Ironman racing and ultra running
- The performance benefits on hiking
- The training
- Believing it's possible, even at a stretch
- Failures
- And more

FB #211 - Lesley Paterson  

This week I get to have a super fun conversation with multiple Xterra and Off Road World Champion Lesley Paterson. Lesley's story is an  inspirational one from early success to quickly becoming disillusioned with the sport when sports scientist tried to bake her in the 'one size fits all' performance mould. After bunch of years off she got reacquainted to getting muddy (past rugby days... yes you read that right) and chiseled herself to become an Xterra World Champion. Throw in Lyme disease into the mix, learning to deal with negative Nora and all the other mental conundrums that we athletes face on a daily basis... mix in her sports psychologist hubby Simon and very soon you to can have an exceptional book in your hands that could be life changing for you.

Reading it won't do that... rolling up your sleeves and creating awareness of your inner self  and doing the exercise contained within will help. The book is hilarious and super practical. And with a title "The Brave Athlete - Calm the Fuck Down and Rise to the Occasion" how can it not be a winner.

Lesley is the real deal. The Scottish lass doesn’t mind dropping an f-bomb to two and is just passionate about helping others rise to the occasion. 

I thoroughly enjoyed my chat with her and I know you will too. 

LET’s do it. 

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: The story Not fitting the mould Overcoming the hurdles The gradual process The Why Asking Why! Be a 3 year old. Our existential crisis Why not giving a shit can be the catalyst to your best ever results The need and the reason for gratitude Our 3 brains Lesley's alter ego and why it's needed The single most important psychological trail we need.

FB #210 - Rachel Joyce  

This week I get to welcome back Rachel Joyce aka the Joycenator back on to the Fat Black podcast. We had Rachel on way back for episode #146 where she gave us a lot of insights and clues into what it is to be a champion athlete and how we can all take on the traits of champions to bring out our best selves. Well today we kind of continue that thread but in the new light of Rachel being a mum to 7 month old Archie and coming back to racing. Recently Rachel lined up a Oceanside 70.3 as her first race back (her race choice speaks volumes about her and choosing a race with with a stacked field). You will most definitely hear little Archie throughout the interview because he decided being awake listening to mum speak was way more exciting than sleeping.
Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

- Making it work
- Making peace with her past achievements
- The decision to come back to racing
- The balancing act
- Choosing the tough races
- When the TrainingPeaks box goes RED.
- The value of benchmarks
- The enjoyment of the puzzle
- And much more.

FB #209 - Charlotte Paul  

This week it's my absolute pleasure to sit down with my better half Charlotte Paul. Ironman champ and super mum, talking all about her time as a triathlete.

It was fun going into the memory archives, having a fun conversation and give you many take homes to improve you as an athlete and person.

I trust you'll enjoy this as much as we did recording it.

FB #206 - Tim Corbett - The Ironman Juggler  

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 SHOW LINKS:

FB# 204 - Travis McKenzie  

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 SHOW LINKS:

FB# 203 - Dr Phil Maffetone - Athletes: Fit but Unhealthy  

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 SHOW LINKS:
