C26 Triathlon is on the ground in Chattanooga for Ironman and we discuss the race up to mid-bike, including the swim and another scorcher of a day for this race. We also dive into addiction, the REAL stuff that gets us into this sport and how we can try, but often fail to explain to friends why we would chose to do 140.6 mile races.

Post race is one of the most bitter sweet feelings in triathlon. There's nothing like finishing the race, but waking up to empty streets, where no one is cheering you home can be a little deflating after such a big day on the course. Don't beat yourself up!

- Overcoming lack of motivation
- Getting out of ruts
- How to stay motivated and find gains in the off season

Nobody knows it all, but there are definitely warning signs that your training is on a slippery slope. Are you overly fatigued? Stressed? Feeling defeated? Not loving triathlon? So many times we get conflicted about what's really going on here . . . we are doing triathlon for two reasons: to have fun . . .and get better. We actually PAY to do this . . . and should never hate or regret what we're doing. But these things happen ALL THE TIME. Today we explore why we get on the wrong side of the sport and offer many thoughts and solutions for how to change your approach and find the joy you're seeking. 

We also talk about over-training and how it is easily the biggest blood-suck for your enjoyment of the sport. We talk about ways to beat the blahs in peak training along with how to visualize your race during the taper. Patience, execution, and belief. 

- The biggest mistakes coach's make 
- The perfect analogy for approaching your Ironman race
- How much should you run before an Ironman??
- Ways to break out of your training funk
- What to be thinking abut during your taper
- The 18 mile wall: Truth or Myth
- Running above your shoulders
- Mountain Biking, Dog Walking, and Roller Blades to the rescue 
- Will Mike and Robbie do Otillo??

Do you trust your training on race day? Are you married to your devices? Could you do the run without looking at your watch? On today's podcast we get into the mentality of trusting yourself, your training, and your abilities. We look at what it's how to minimize the importance of your race to perform better. We dig into why it's important to let go of BAD and GOOD workouts. And we also look at how we can come together as a group to help people in Houston.

Ironman is about the hours and hours of training and the celebration of race day, but it’s also about friends and family . . . maybe more. The last thing you want is for your mom to be standing on a 15-hour-island looking at a confusing tracking app. Ironman Spectating is about setting up friends and family for an enjoyable weekend! Set them straight ahead of time with friends, locations, and info. Connect them to others and help them understand what they’re getting into ahead of time. Share this with your loved ones and make your Ironman weekend an experience everyone will remember forever.

Are you already thinking ahead to next year? What's the rush? Many triathletes severely underestimate October through February.

If the reason is . . . you are loving the sport and making a long term commitment, that's probably a good thing. Or . . . are you looking for the next race-buzz?

Today we're talking about the "Q-4" or the "Triathlon Transition Phase." How to be in the moment with the process. How to think about training in the sport without saying "I have to do this . . .and I have to do that." 

Many of you may be done with your season, or close, and have a race for next year, an off-season marathon, or . . . nothing. And those can be dangerous places. Plus, we look at what to do in your off season and why it could be CRITICAL for next season's goals. 

How to make the focus of every training season, week, and day be, "I'm gonna do the best I can today, and keep getting better." How and when to focus on your weakness.

It's it possible your thoughts and goals are holding you back? Today on the Crushing Iron podcast we look at why trying too hard might be slowing you down. With so many outside distractions these days, it's important to listen and learn things for yourself but at the same time, not put too much stock in what you think. It's a slippery slope that takes practice just like swimming, biking, or running. We look at how embracing "surrender" in your training and racing can release you to levels you might not believe you can attain. There are thousands of philosophies surrounding swim, bike, and run, but ultimately it comes down to yours. What's best for you and how you can pursue the right road, all while not being chained to doubt.  
 
- The Ups and Downs of Training 
- The importance of Clarity, surrender, patience 
- Don’t give up on your swim, change your perspective and get faster
- The Training Plan Puzzle
- Why you should NEVER train Just To Make The Cutoff
- How to uncover your real goals

This was a great weekend for the C26 Triathlon Athletes. There were some podiums, first timers, and PR's, but it's how everyone racing "went about" their race that caught our attention. Despite some pain and struggle, everyone genuinely seemed to have rewarding and fun races. This got us thinking about the grounding question of, "Why Do We Do Triathlon" in the first place? We are very excited about the supportive C26 community and it's definitely having an impact on us as we train for Louisville. Lot's of good stuff in here as we just went down the road of racing with gratitude and appreciation for the process of our sport.
 
- What brought you to triathlon, and what keeps you here? 
- How triathlon helps us figure out who we really are
- Why it's so hard to run slow in training
- We can always get better, but race day is the day to celebrate how far you've come
- Rebounding from a disappointing race by "Playing Triathlon"
- Your time isn't who you are
- How to genuinely enjoy your race
- Why you shouldn’t throw away your year because of how you feel now
- Don’t be held hostage by digital software
- How to relax and let your body flow
- What does hard and/or moderate FEEL like?
- Do you buy into “how good can I be today?”

On Today's Crushing Iron Podcast we welcome Age Grouper Jaime Lopez. He talks about his entry into the sport, his obsession with YouTube swim videos, and walks us through his first painful 70.3 in Muncie. Then he shares how he cut a full hour off his time, including nearly 20 minutes in the swim, on the same course. And You Must hear the story of his pre-Ironman Louisville breakfast. We can't imagine anything worse, but his perseverance that day is something we can all learn from, including using cough drops for his run nutrition.

We love to share good stories of people who have decided to change their lives for the better and show us how far they've come since they got into the sport. We hope you enjoy it too... guys and girls just like us trying to be the best we can be. Enjoy!

We just finished our first C26 Triathlon Camp and it fueled a lively discussion about training, racing, and living life to the fullest. We cover a lot of ground including how we're training for Ironman Louisville, but the overall theme of this podcast is how to train and race in ways that keep you healthy and happy. We talk about building and adapting your philosophies surrounding how you train and who you train with. Here are some bullet points from today's podcast:

- running hills vs. flats
- bike trainer vs riding on the roads 
- training in a group vs flying solo
- how to prevent your body from collapsing into a walk (on the run)
- It’s not how to go the fastest, it’s how to slow down the least
- Easing your way into the sport despite what your friends want you to do
- How to learn more about yourself off the course than on by reshaping your perspective.
- Why healthy and happy is the most important part of triathlon
- Can you smile when your crank falls off?
- Getting rid of excuses
- Committing to Consistency
- More Camps on the way
- Getting Clear with Fixing Your Swim
