Dec 26, 2017

The Crushing Iron Podcast puts you in prime position for a great start on January 1, 2018. Good decisions happen from the right state of mind but often we make big decisions from a bad place. We wake up after staying out late, over eating, drinking, etc... and instead of doing "something" we decide to plan our week. Today we explore the process of doing that planning AFTER you actually do something productive. 

Also:

  • Exploring the #1 Week of Limbo
  • Why You Should Re-define Monday
  • Binging On Netflix - Peaky Blinders
  • Your State of Mind and Good Decisions
  • Making today, today
  • How Can You Make it Fun?
  • Ordinary as a means of extraordinary
  • The fight or flight of triathlon
  • Preheating Your Training Oven

Today, the Crushing Iron Podcast tackles training/race etiquette and some of the funny things that happen in triathlon. What do you do when someone won’t offer to share a lane at the pool?

The guys give some solutions. And how do you justify buying new equipment, or a bike? Some of today’s topics: 

  • Does equipment make a difference?
  • How and when do you justify purchases?
  • When do buy a new bike?
  • What makes your bike most aero?
  • Upgrading your bike
  • Trail running
