  • Show SponsorAnyQuestion - anyquestion.com/McGeerunning Support the show athttps://www.patreon.com/user?u=26936856"The Greg Bennett Show" Bobby McGee is one of the worlds greatest running coaches and has been involved in endurance coaching for 32 years. He is a 5 x Olympic coach, and has been involved in some form with 9 Olympic medalists.Bobby has spent many years coaching elite athletes and individual amateurs of all levels, guiding them to achieve their goals.Bobby says, there are three very important aspects of endurance training;Firstly, address your running mechanics. Teach yourself to run effectively and to avoid injuries in order to race at your optimum level.Secondly, look at how you train. What is it about your training that’s holding you back? Is there a way that you can train better?Lastly, address the mental blocks that hold you back. How can you unleash the power of your mind to get you to race effectively?In this episode, Bobby and Greg discuss The Pendola Project. Here is a link to more information where you can even sign up to one of thee 12 week RunForm. Whether you are training for an Olympic Gold or a local 5k you can run happier and faster. The Relative Run Readiness packages will give you the strength and proper movement patterns to run with good form for longer. Timestamps1:53 - Interview starts5:05 - About Bobby McGee. Bobby was born in South Africa and went to University basically to study to become a coach, He started by coaching middle and long distance track runners and went on to coach road runners and marathoners. Bobby moved to Boulder in the US in 1992 , and started coaching triathletes.8:23 - Bobby currently coaches Victoria Lopez, Taylor Knibb, Flora Duffy, Kirsten Kasper along with other pro and amatuer athletes.10:21 - When coaching elite triathletes, it's important to consider the athletes biomechanics. For instance long distance swimmers often have low bone density and therefore do not perform as strong runners due to the rigors of long distance running, so as a coach it's important to understand and set training expectations specifically for each individual.Bobby's book: Magical Running - A Unique path to running fulfillment15:59 - Bobby's fascination of the bio mechanics of running came about as he could see a connection between certain running motion patterns and the tendency of getting injured.I use to say: I don’t teach people how to run, I help people get back to the best running that they are capable of.Good running form looks very differently depending on the individual’s genetics, one has to have a very different approach to someone with for instance long torso and short legs compared to someone with a more natural body composition for running. Also, factors like running background (has the athlete practiced plenty of speed work or come from an endurance background?) matters in how Bobby approaches individuals running technique.20:06 - Rewinding the clock. Bobby describes his youth and pathway through younger years to discover his passion for running, and then coaching, including serving time in the South African Military.37:54 - Shifting to mindset and performance, Bobby describes the advice he would give an athlete struggling with confidence. Being aware and knowing how your thoughts affect you is crucial in order to perform. Bobby feels that there is no right or wrong way to prepare mentally for competition, some people are super calm before races and perform well and others are extremely nervous and also perform well. Many age groupers (especially males) tend to overestimate their performance and hence set themselves up for failure by not being able to rise to their expectations. Don't doubt yourself, "The only thing you should doubt, is the doubt".The only thing you should doubt, is the doubt.41:53 - When it comes to an athlete feeling failure, Bobby explains his techniques that he applies to his athletes. Bobby's golden rule - There is what happened ... then there is 'what are you making it mean to you'. Meaning and interpretation affect an athlete's mindset.48:23 - Different type of run drills are great in order to achieve a change in running style. The purpose of drills are basically to exaggerate a specific movement. Drills play three different roles: First, you’re trying to address a mechanical anomaly that the athlete has gotten into, the second reason is to do it as an activation exercise and the last role is for muscle endurance or power purposes. One also needs to make sure that the athlete has the strength, mobility and balance to run in a specific way. When approaching your running technique, one must be rather careful, this is an area where the wrong tips can get the opposite effect on your performance. 57:27 - First two laws of mechanics. The first rule is to never trust what you feel, you think you run a certain way but when you look into the mirror it rarely looks like what you first thought. The second rule is that if you want to achieve a change, you need to exaggerate the movement (this is also very applicable to swimming).1:04:26 - The Run Transformation Course is a membership-based training program put together by Bobby McGee and is available at his website. Members have access to Bobby McGee’s proven training strategies and a wealth of other resources. The program currently provides nearly 10 hours of running training including over four hours of video on running drills, two and one half hours of video on biomechanics, a 75 minute mental skills assessment and two hours of running sports essentials material.1:06:16 - Interview concludes.

  • Today I am joined by one of the greatest Ironman athletes in the world. He’s currently ranked 8th on the PTO World rankings and has been steadily making his way up this list for many years. Dr. Matt Hanson is a professional triathlete and coach for triathletes, cyclists and runners. He has an extensive background as an athlete and is highly-educated in all things sports-related. He’s quietly gone about the job of winning major Ironman's, including 4 North American titles. Combine that with his multitude of half-Ironman wins and you start to see the incredible foundation he has built. As an athlete, Matt comes from a wrestling background, but running has always a been a passion of his. In 2014, his first year as a pro, Matt set 3 run course records and won Ironman Chattanooga. He has since tallied 10 professional wins. He also owns the fastest ever marathon off the bike with a 2:34. With his background as a Professor of Sports Science, his natural ability to run a fast marathon in an Ironman, and his discipline and determination, I have him on course to become one of the true greats.

  • In today's episode I have a conversation with two of the greatest athletes in the world ... and honestly, two of the best men I know. One of them dominated the world of 70.3 and Ironman with 3 Kona Ironman and two 70.3 world titles and arguably the greatest career in the middle distance Triathlon, with more wins at that distance than anyone else. Add to that his impressive short course wins at Minneapolis, Chicago and many others and you can see why I hold him in such awe. The other has one of the greatest Olympic careers we’re ever seen. Four Olympics, a Gold medal at the first ever Olympic Triathlon and Silver medal 8 years later. Known for his powerful sprint he also took the biggest prize money wins at the Hyvee and Life Time Minneapolis. Personally, I watched from the very beginning as both of them started their careers as young men. Neither of them were remarkable to start but they chipped away to become icons of the sport that we all love. I’ve spent thousands of hours training with them both. We’ve crashed, and we’ve had podiums on the world stage ... we’ve shared the highs and lows of sport and life together. They’ve both been on the show separately, but this is a first for the three of us.

Timestamps0:00 - Introduction to show2:05 - Interview starts3:29 - Seth explains his journey to become a high performance coach. From his early sporting achievements through to his tougher times that helped him to understand himself at a deeper level. 14:41 - Everything serves us moving forward ... it might not make sense now, but lean into it as it will become evident what the learning is and how you can utilise it to achieve. It may look like a dis-advantage at the time ... but it will become an advantage. Learn as many lessons as you can in the shortest amount of time.16:03 - Seth taught himself to create a vision for himself. Your thoughts ... become your words ... become your actions. 18:33 - Being given some 'space to explore' can be critical to success.

Seth explains his method of coaching elite people.52:32 - 3 Questions. Do you know who you are, do you know what you want, and are you in control of your life?

She was overweight, he thought, and thus responsible for the fact that she needed a foot amputation. But years later, Attia received an unpleasant medical surprise that led him to wonder: is our understanding of diabetes right?

That ruling exonerated him completely on all 10 aspects of a charge of unprofessional conduct.The appeal ended the HPCSA's unprecedented, multimillion trial of Noakes that it had dragged out for more than four years. Its ruling reverberates down medical, nutrition science and food- and drug-industry corridors of power globally to this day.It effectively endorsed Noakes's right to freedom of speech as a scientist and the evidence for low-carbohydrate, high-healthy fat (LCHF) therapies. It vindicated his vigorous opposition to South Africa's industry-led, high-carb, low-fat Food-Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs).

  • Simon Whitfield made history in his Olympic debut at Sydney 2000 where he unexpectedly became the first ever Olympic champion in men’s triathlon. An outstanding runner, Whitfield moved himself from the middle of the field after the swimming and cycling legs to the top step of the podium. He used his sprint speed to catch and pass the leader, German Stephan Vuckovic, less than 300 metres from the finish line before pulling away for the victory. After an 11th place finish at Athens 2004, Whitfield and his team decided he needed a new strategy at Beijing 2008. Teammate Colin Jenkins willingly took up the role of domestique, which was a tactic borrowed from road cycling. Jenkins’ job was to get out of the water at the front of the pack and keep the leaders close during the cycling leg, chasing down and reeling in anyone who attempted to break away. That set the stage for Whitfield to shine during the 10-kilometre run. Fourth heading into the final lap, Whitfield picked up his pace for another sprint to the finish line, coming away with the silver medal. For his fourth Olympic Games at London 2012, Whitfield was selected as Team Canada’s flag bearer for the Opening Ceremony. But he was unable to finish his last Olympic race when he crashed his bike going over a speed bump and suffered a small break to his collarbone. The two-time Olympic medalist announced his retirement in October 2013. Whitfield’s success at multi-sport games also includes the bronze medal won at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg as well as the first ever gold medal awarded in triathlon at the Commonwealth Games in 2002.During his 16 years as an elite international competitor, Whitfield earned 14 ITU World Cup victories and was a 12-time national champion. He received Honourary Doctor of Laws degrees from the University of Guelph and the University of Victoria. Whitfield was inducted the ITU Hall of Fame and Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.
