The athlete who makes the fewest mistakes is the one who wins their race.

  • Pressures build 
  • When Coaches Worry
  • Coming to terms with our training
  • Patience and calm

Triathlon is a long, complicated process that doesn't always give us clear answers. Today we look for ways to take positives away from "bad" workouts, how to use hope as your "why," and maybe even how to keep this training thing simple (or simpler). We're all a work in progress and paying attention to your life and stress matter in training. 

Topics:

  • What’s your level of hope?
  • Hope is Interchangeable with Your Why
  • Can you step back and look at the big picture?
  • Can you stick with 5-6 weeks of demanding workouts?
  • Looking at the "final block” before your big race
  • Is what you’ve done enough?
  • Are you “MORE-ING” your way to tired and overtrained?
  • If You Don’t Have Bad Days, something’s probably wrong
  • Writing about your workouts
  • Neglecting the little things that could make training less painful
  • When It’s Not Your Fitness, It’s Your Life
  • Comparison is the worst thing you can do
  • Is your primary goal delusional?
  • I want to feel good today 
  • It’s all about effort 
  • It’s always a work in progress 
  • Slowing Down The Least 
  • How we use fear and need for excitement
  • Doing More Is a Lazy Answer 
  • Getting to the top of your age group
  • Minutes Matter

We look at the Ironman (triathlon) high and search for ways to approach the sport so it’s not taking away what it should be giving you. The event doesn’t change you, it’s who you become along the way. 

Topics:

  • Ironman Muncie podcast is #65 
  • 2020 C26 Training Camps Link
  • Getting back your mojo
  • Ironman Burnout
  • Does Ironman define you?
  • The Ironman high . . . and low
  • When we let races define us
  • Why did you choose Triathlon?
  • Searching for Change 
  • Searching for Fulfillment
  • You’re still left with you
  • Treading water in your life
  • Is triathlon your life raft?
