    · 01:37:29 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Today I have Jocelyn McCauley on the show. I met Jocelyn McCauley at the daylight mind cafe in Kona this year and we tried to get a podcast done in the craziness of race week. It didn’t happen, but we finally got there. Jocelyn started the sport of swim bike run in 2013, in fact, she registered for her first 70.3 and shortly after found out she was pregnant. Well, she trained as much as she could and 11 weeks after the birth of her daughter she completed Muncie 70.3 in under 5 hours! She went on to do her first Ironman and qualified for Kona. And in her second IM, she added IM World Champion to her name and first amateur female. Her first IM pro win was Mallorca in 2016 and then she won IMNZ in 2017 and ran a smoking 2:59. 10 in Kona this past October … This mum is the real deal and we speak about her trajectory and her lessons as a 2nd year pro. Many of these lessons we should heed. I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did interviewing Jocelyn.  IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: - Self identity  - Pro and AG - it's a different race - Logistics of racing with a 3-month-old - Her trajectory in the sport and how athletic background matters - Fitting it all in being a mother and wife - Visualizing  - Making it and keeping it fun - Her Jekyll and Hyde personality - Breaking down her Kona race - The 10 things she learned as a 2nd-year pro - And so much more Show Links: Please head over to http://www.trispecific.com/fb237 for all links discussed in todays show.

  • FB #236 - Simon Whitfield

    · 01:13:08 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

        Today I have Simon Whitfield on the Fat Black. Simon shouldn’t need any introduction, however… For those that don’t know. Simon won the first Olympic gold in Sydney 2000 and in this interview he tells how he believes he got a leg up on every other competitor well before the course was even set. He won that event after going down on the bike with 14 others and worked his way back. I remember sitting in the stands with Charlotte watching that live and thinking damn near 2 hours is a long time to be racing. Who would’ve known some 17 years later I'd be having a conversation with Simon. Ahh, the poetry of life.  Simon also won silver in Beijing a gold at the 2002 Commonwealth games among so many other medals was know for having a great kick in the finish straight. One of my favorite ever finishing pictures is the one above by the legend that is Dely Carr of Simon outsprinting Brad Kahlefeldt, Jan Frodeno and Kris Gemmell to the line at the Hyvee race for $200K… Absolutely Rivetting. I really enjoyed my chat with Simon and especially why having and cultivating your imagination is so important. Anyway, I’ll leave it at that so you can fully enjoy. There's some big life lessons in here. Image: Delly Carr IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: How Simon orchestrated his gold medal in Sydney Chasing the ball and how it helps you find that little bit more The connection of fiction with champions and why fiction is so important Daily rituals and why you need to be disciplined with them Why cultivating your imagination is so crucial to everything Deliberate orchestration of that you wish to attain Performance decision making Losing self-authority of our attention span What’s occupying your mental landscape The overwhelming characteristics of champions like the Brownlee brothers, Daniela Ryf, Jan Frodeno, Chrissie Wellington, Nicole Spirig Why maintaining your breath is everything Creating and cultivating your environment to success Keeping it simple State story strategy The benefits of a systematic process On navigating an about end to a triathlon career The butterfly story The best response from Simon’s dad after he came second to Jan in Beijing The importance of play Nutrition N+1 training Biggest mistake athletes make in quest for performance Listen & Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher Radio SHOW LINKS: Web: Simon's musings How to Whitfield your way to a win   Books mentioned The Art of Learning Remembrance of Earths Past series The 3 Body Problem The Dark Forest Deaths End Butchers Crossing The Paper Menagerie The Last Neanderthal The Color of Lightning Children of Time The Paul Kennedy Meat Debates Can we justify eating animals The matter of meat: a history of pros and cons  Social: Twitter Join (for Free) our TRISPECIFIC CAFE https://www.facebook.com/TriSpecific http://www.instagram.com/trispecific SHOW SPONSORS: Today’s show is brought to you by Purica.

     Today I have Dag Oliver - the GM of Norseman Xtreme triathlon on the show. Dag DNF’d his first triathlon back in 2005 due to a broken handlebar. Like all of us was bitten by the tri bug, but as most of us go deep into racing and competing, Dag went into race directing, to the secretary general of the Norwegian triathlon federation, to splitting his time between his relaxed sports photography business and the IT department of the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee. He is a busy man but one that is passionate about the sport and you can see how this shines through and how he lives the core values of Norseman. Enjoy.

  • FB# 234 – Mike Maric

    · 01:07:48 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

      Today I have Mike Maric on the show. Mike is a medically trained forensic scientist that loves freediving and he believes that the quality of a person's life depends on the quality of their breathing. On his website, he says “when you master your breathing, you'll master your body, your mind, your life “ - I believe there is a lot of truth in that statement. We are always looking for ways to improve performance, yet we typically overlook the simple but not easy ones. Sleep and breathing are two of those.  IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Why breathing is the ultimate cross-training tool. Breathing and life Co2 training and why it helps with dealing with open water swimming. And why triathletes should learn and do flip turns in a pool and why Co2 tolerance is harder developing out of the pool Repetition is needed. Becoming the master of your breathing. The science All life is in the breathing Making our muscles work better without oxygen Where Mike’s mind is when he is about to do a big freedive Reducing recovery time Losing a friend and leaving the water Defeating his two biggest enemies (himself and fear) How to improves one breathing And so much more Listen & Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher Radio SHOW LINKS: Web: MikeMaric.com Suunto article Social: Instagram Facebook Twitter Join (for Free) our TRISPECIFIC CAFE https://www.facebook.com/TriSpecific http://www.instagram.com/trispecific SHOW SPONSORS: Today’s show is brought to you by Purica.

  • FB#233 - Scott Jones - Kona 2017

    · 00:55:30 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    The clock is doing its thing ticking down to the start of the 2017 Ironman World Championships. The vibe is electric and you can feel the nerves mounting. Today I have my brother from another mother Scott Jones on the podcast. You can find an interview I did with Joneser on the Triathlon World Summit at FB160 this episode is often quoted as a favourite. Joneser is a winner in life… this guy packs more into life than most with more responsibilities in life than most (he’s a rear admiral of the US Navy and a commercial pilot, loving husband, father and kick ass athlete). We talk about Kona and how to race well out here and we also cover the ageing athlete. Joneser always comes out with nuggets of pure gold. Listen with your ears peeled back. Enjoy.

  • FB#231 - Greg Welch - Kona 2017

    · 00:22:14 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Today I’m speaking with the plucky Aussie Greg Welch. Better known as Welchy. he really doesn’t need an introduction but for those, who for some reason do not know who Welchy is… he is the charismatic Aussie and the first Aussie to win here in Kona back in 1994. I got the pleasure of sitting down at the Oakley house here in Kona with Greg and having a very quick conversation before the party started. There’s a bit of background noise but honestly who cares. We are in Kona sitting by the ocean chewing the fat about the race. Good times. And if you are here in Kona, go check out Oakley’s new helmets and glasses. They are pretty sweet. Enjoy.

  • FB#229 - Karlyn Pipes - Kona 2017

    · 01:00:15 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Today we kick off the Kona special with Kona local and swim legend Karlyn Pipes. I’ve had Karlyn on the podcast back in episode 140. Karlyn is a swimmer, swim technique coach, author and inspirational speaker. She has established more number one rankings than any other Masters-level swimmer in history and was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015. Do yourself a favour and get her book The Do Over - an inspiring story of her do-over from early swim success to addiction and then recovery through swimming. This year she has been on a tear in masters swimming and I got lucky enough to have a swim session with her in her endless pool yesterday which had me focused and playing around in the water in today's Ho’ala Ironman Worlds Champs training swim. Her swim lessons also come packaged with metaphors for life. My conversation with Karlyn will help you become a better swimmer. And if you happen to be on the Big Island reach out to Karlyn via her contact page at Karlynpipes.com. You won’t regret it. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Deconstructing and reconstructing my swim How to swim the Kona Ironman One of the worst pieces of advice given to get your hips up See the fishes, hear the fishes and talk to the fishes and why you’ll want to do this in open water swimming especially in Kona. Why you don’t want to finish your stroke Rolling - being on your side is not faster Finding quiet power Contrasting your swimming to SEE and FEEL the differences Why you DO NOT want to be feeling the water Scissoring your kick is only the ‘symptom of the disease’ Warming up for Iroman Why Karlyn writes KNOW on her hand/arm in competition Where to start depending on how you breathe Finding space in the turns at the buoys And so much more goodness.

    · 02:00:06 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Ok, today I have Denis Mikhailov on the show. Denis is not a triathlete but he definitely IS an athlete and his big wall climbing adventures definitely fall into the endurance category and he has much to share. 8-14 odd hours out in the elements, working out the puzzle of performance to get to the ultimate destination. That puzzle includes the fitness and strength required to get the job done, not to mention fuelling and Denis’s path led him to create nomad nutrition and of course that mental fitness is so key. All of which we discuss on the show. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Deconstructing performance Why structure is so important Your next performance breakthrough comes down to your mental training When you have to get out there Zen Archery The process of coming back mentally from a scary fall Food equals health Why he went raw vegan and the day he gave it up The morning ritual The need to create great adventure food His book recommendation that is not a book.

  • FB #227 - Jesse Kropelnicki

    · 01:19:02 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Today’s guest is coach Jesse Kropelnicki who is the coach of two past professional athletes guests - Angela Naeth and Linsey Corbin. What I like about Jesse and why he has had so much success is that it’s not just about the training. When things go pear-shaped most peoples knee-jerk reaction is “it must have been the training” - when most of the time it’s simply some other limiter that is getting in the way of being able to leverage the training. These limiters are typically daily nutrition, or race fuelling, race execution or simply the athlete's mental fitness is not there. We get into the nitty-gritty in this conversation and as usual, there are great lessons that can help you in your quest to be a better athlete. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Managing your mental space for high performance Why context in any situation matters There is no balance The strategy to fixing your limiters The foundations of performance Unorthodox training methods Setting up your environment for success in training, business and in life Durability and why that is a key ingredient The critical system you need in place The stress budget and why you need to understand this And so much more Listen & Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher Radio SHOW LINKS: Web: QT2 Systems http://kropelnicki.com/ The Endurance Training Diet & Cookbook The Field Work Nutrition Co Other things mentioned in this podcast The Advantage Emotional Intelligence 2.0 Social: Instagram Facebook Twitter Join (for Free) our TRISPECIFIC CAFE https://www.facebook.com/TriSpecific http://www.instagram.com/trispecific SHOW SPONSORS: Today’s show is brought to you by Purica.

    Today's podcast is my conversation with pro triathlete, Angela Naeth. And let me tell you, we get deep and Angela really lets it all out there. This makes it so special - we all have ups and downs and the best of life’s hurdles to overcome.

She is a multiple 70.3 Champion, twenty-five 70.3 podium finisher, Ironman 2014 Chattanooga Champion (her third Ironman) and the 2015 North American Ironman Champion and had gone sub 9 twice. Angela has a Masters degree in Physical Therapy and Bachelors in Health Sciences… and in her quest to give back she has created this great women's triathlon/cycling community iracelikeagirl.com which gives her the opportunity to support others in the sport of triathlon.  I really enjoyed this conversation with Angela and I think you will too… IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: The coaches she's had, (including Chucky-V, Mark Allen, Sutto and current coach Jesse Kropelnicki) and the invaluable lessons  The value of sacrifice Why simplicity rules How RedBull changed her life What it takes to be an endurance athlete and what it takes to be pro Becoming a pro today versus in 2008 Belief and being yourself Stress Her injury journey and getting through it The biggest obstacle Where age groupers screw it up (mostly) A book everyone needs to read.  The best advice she has ever received.

  • FB#222 - David Roche

    · 01:31:53 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    Today I have a conversation with my ultra running coach, David Roche. David is not only a great runner - he’s the 2016 Way Too Cool 50k winner, the 2012 and 2014 USA Trail 10k National Champion, the 2014 US Sub-Ultra Trail Runner of the Year, a member of the 2014 US Mountain Running Team, the 2015 US Long Distance Mountain Team, and the 2017 US Trail World Champs team.  David is also great coach, with a strong community and has athletes crushing it over various distances every weekend. (Like Cat Bradley who was one of the 2.5% of people that got a ticket to Western States in the lottery and went on to WIN)  But as the title of his blog spot is… Some Work, ALL Play lays down his life philosophy of having fun. Yes it’s the trials of miles for success but love of the process and understanding that We are stardust with delusions of grandeur. And None of this stuff matters except the memories we make. So DECIDE to MAKE good memories no matter what. There’s a lot to learn in that view point and also loads to learn in my conversation that applies to any endurance sport. David made this call work off a mountain in Colorado to fit this in, so at times there’s a little wind disturbance towards the end as a thunderstorm was rolling in but it’s all good. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Coaching, Performance and getting the ingredients right. Exposing Talent The trials of miles the miles of trials and why it matters The big reasons of being an athlete The first pre requisite of an athlete so you don’t sell yourself short and allows you to become the best you can become. How to build belief in oneself Comparisons the thief of joy The problem with focusing only on the outcome Depression and post race blues Ego based training Why you need a what’s next And much more.

  • FB #219 - The Bighorn 100

    · 01:56:11 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

      This week the tables are turned and I'm getting interviewed by non other than my awesome wife, Charlotte Paul. It's more a conversation about my experience of my first 100 mile run race through the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming. Today's podcast is a long one... but you know what, the race was kinda long.  As per usual, lots of lessons for all of us and I know how much it helps to go over and debrief a race. Because we can always find areas to improve upon. For me, this race was everything and more than I could have hoped for or imagined.  The day before the race, there was this shop (unfortunately closed) across from the Blacktooth brewery where race registration was and it had this sign - "Today is a good day for a good day" -  it made me smile and I woke up with that in my head on race morning. Positivity IS a performance enhancer :) Ok, Lets do this. Enjoy. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: Why the hell run a 100 miler?  Commitment to the goal The training and getting it done, no matter the weather My 3 goals for the event The road trip down and making the best of suboptimal Not being able to consume food for near 18 hours  Missing my crew at 50k in My organisational mistakes Flirting with hypothermia (again) Being adaptable to what mother nature throws at you on the day The pacing strategy Keeping my head entertained for 24 hours The major lessons Coaches messages It takes a team to succeed The standoff with a Moose Listen & Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher Radio Join (for Free) our TRISPECIFIC CAFE https://www.facebook.com/TriSpecific http://www.instagram.com/trispecific SHOW SPONSOR: TS LIFE –150 years of Canada and being our adopted country and a place we absolutely love.

  • FB #218 - Teresa Rider

    · 01:15:41 · TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

    This week I have the first person I ever spoke to in the sport of Triathlon. Teresa Rider was the then partner of John Hill (our first coach) and was a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Teresa proves that you’re never too old to start and etch away at blowing the doors off of what’s possible. She started at 33 years young. With NO swim background Teresa breastroked her way through her first Triathlon swim. She went on to Ironman and did Kona 12 times with 9 podiums, two of those being an age group World Champion. Teresa is married to Scott Jones a man I have so much respect for and someone that is like a brother too me. He was part of the Triathlon World Summit and you can listen to his fantastic interview here [FB#160] this is one power couple that is for sure. I’m stoked to have been part of this amazing woman's journey and she played a massive part in both Charlotte’s and mine for which I have so much gratitude for. Enjoy this and listen with both ears. A lot of wisdom and knowledge from Teresa. Over 2 decades in the sport, retired healthy and injury free. Success leaves clues. Lets do this. Enjoy. IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS: From party girl to triathlete and beyond Developing resiliency and thus longevity Breastroking her first Triathlon to winning her age group in Kona (twice) Why a coach matters A big key to getting fast It's not talent, but you can expose 'talent' You must develop this skill set to have any sort of success Why breaks are good The benefits of this sport Giving back and paying it forward And so much more Listen & Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher Radio Join (for Free) our TRISPECIFIC CAFE https://www.facebook.com/TriSpecific http://www.instagram.com/trispecific SHOW SPONSOR: TS LIFE – Are YOU worth the investment?
