Jul 19, 2018

"I had GI issues" might be one of the most commonly uttered phrases in triathlon, but why does it keep popping up? Probably because we don't train enough to our NUTRITION and HYDRATION. We hate to say it, but Nutrition takes practice and there are hundreds of variables, like did you have spicy food and 3 margaritas last night? Today, we give you some better ways to keep your energy and stomach solid on the way to a great race.

If you enjoy the Crushing Iron podcast, you can support us with a direct one time pledge here

- From Kuwait to Chattanooga
- Liquid vs solid nutrition on the bike? Benefits of each?
- How do you experiment with nutrition throughout training?
- Is there a good way to calculate liquid needs in training to thread the needle between over/under hydrating?
- How to train for a race that is no where close to the conditions you have to train in? (IE a hilly course when you live someplace with no hill access. Training for heat in a cooler climate)
- Any opinions on the newest IM run training trend that’s sweeping the nation, 10-17?
- Is your heart rate monitor slowing you down? 
- Would you ever consider trying to start your own triathlon event?
- "Should I or shouldn't I do this race?"... what factors do you recommend taking into consideration?

Coach Robbie and Mike, along with 12 or so Crushing Iron coached athletes will be at Ohio 70.3 this year so please say hi if you see them around.

And a great performance should always be the goal.

Imagine coaching 40 athletes that are racing triathlon on the same weekend. Today, Coach Robbie takes us through a play by play of how he tracks athletes and retains his sanity with all the notifications. The highs, the lows, the stresses, the rewards. He also shares his "secrets" as a coach, which usually boil down to building relationships and trust. 

  • Coaching the Week of race preparation
  • Race outlines
  • An Athlete’s Happiness is #1
  • Handling different skill levels and ages
  • Most stressful part of a race weekend
  • Dealing with sickness and stress
  • The journey and the obstacles
  • Endless Variables to Consider
  • Big race, fun race, set up
  • Just finish, podium, or win?
  • Expectations or Future Resentments? 
  • Or, Expectations as Restraints?
  • Why Athletes Never Let a Coach Down

Please be patient with our opening discussion about LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan. It's always something. After that we get into some great stuff from our C26 Athletes and what they learned at Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga. We also talk about the intensity of a Half Ironman vs. an Olympic and how that gap is closing. Lots of good advice and learning points.

One of the best times for big gains is following the effort of a race. Today, our C26 athletes give us some great feedback from racing in the heat at Chattanooga. How they prepared, raced, and what paid off the most. Also, what they plan to do better next time. Some awesome lessons from a lot of people who PR'd and hit the podium at Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga.

Some of the topics:

- Her pre-race week and why it was the key to her PR
- The best advice for racing and life
- Sponges, Ice, Walking the Aid Stations
- Listen to your body for nutritional advice
- The one thing I'd pay more attention to before my next race
- Stop Telling Yourself You Can't and Start Telling Yourself You Can
- The songs he sang in his head gave him 15 seconds per mile on the run
- How to deal with the feeling that "you didn't race" to your capabilities
- Why scissors are key for pre-race prep
- NFL Draft Comes To Nashville
