This is a great guide for RACE RUNNING and how to train for it. We focus on Ironman, but the same holds true for 70.3, Olympics, and Sprints. For one, we want to strengthen our chassis so we don’t have to walk. And, if we don’t handle the swim and bike right, none of this really matters. It’s a pretty deep dive into accumulated fatigue, accumulated fitness, how to know when you’re in good shape, and why bricks and your long runs might be disrupting your progress. 

Topics: 

  • Walk/run vs. Run
  • Brick Running Overrated??
  • Your body doesn’t care what’s stressing it
  • Running is Running 
  • How to practice running on tired legs
  • You don’t get extra points for running off the bike
  • *When running off the bike makes sense
  • Why you should run before you ride
  • Don’t practice bad running form
  • Run on the “freshest” legs
  • Running off the bike feels weird, but . . . 
  • Do you focus on Swim/Bike bricks??
  • How the swim cascades into your run 
  • Energy expenditure at Ironman
  • What your purpose should be on the swim
  • Does your bike feel like a warm up for the run?
  • Ironman doesn’t “start” until mile 80 of the bike
  • Or . . . Mile 20 of the run.
  • “I crushed the bike . . .” 
  • Bike for Show, Run for Doe
  • There’s no such thing as a good bike split followed by a bad run split. 
  • Volume Running 
  • Do you keep making your long run longer and longer and longer?
  • We have to be consistent with volume
  • You CAN make time for more short runs
  • You shouldn’t feel WRECKED from running
  • How we OVER-DAMAGE our body
  • What’s wrong with thinking “I have to do the distance”
  • Accumulated Fatigue
  • Accumulated Fitness 
  • Don’t let the swim crush you before you start 
  • Spreading out the Volume
  • How to know when you’re getting into good shape
  • Why your long runs might be counterproductive 
  • Don’t burn your matches in training, wait till races
  • Is “Faster” really the training goal??
  • Don’t add extra salt tonight cause you forgot it yesterday

There’s a time and place for being serious, but most of us tend to train and race better when we’re relaxed and coming from a place of gratitude. Today we talk about how to race and train “free.” We look at the difference between intensity and focus, and ways to embrace the unknown. Have you ever found your happy place on the run? Can you get off the bike with a fuller tank? Also, what setting A, B, and C goals for your race looks like. 

 

  • Finding a love to explore 
  • Why laughter may be the key to your training
  • Does LOL on text really mean you’re laughing out loud?
  • Laughter as a mood shifter
  • The impact of our isolation on training
  • When life is hard, people need people
  • Taking ourselves too seriously
  • Drawbacks of perfectionism
  • Lack of nuance in communication
  • Loops of seriousness and training baggage 
  • The weight of the world 
  • Added intensity means added stress
  • Focus vs. Intensity 
  • Do your expectations include being healthy?
  • Perfectly adhering to the plan even if it’s misery
  • This is supposed to be something you LOVE
  • Addiction to the outcome of your favorite team
  • What do you WANT right now
  • Stop while you’re ahead mentality
  • Today isn’t race day
  • Falling in the same traps
  • Taking your perspective seriously
  • Too much internalization with training
  • Days off that turn into months
  • Embracing the unknown
  • Are your goals selling yourself short?
  • Detaching from numbers 
  • Would you rather know or not know your race result in advance?
  • Overanalyzing the steps
  • Setting A, B, and C goals for the same race
  • The power in the mystery of not comparing
  • Being committed to loving and doing it . . . 
  • What still bugs Robbie about his racing
  • Also, why Robbie is insanely grateful
  • Getting off the bike with a fuller tank
  • Can you find happiness on the run?
  • What you should be thinking 5 minutes into the swim
  • Practicing enjoyment and happiness

Today we look at the ways healthy optimism can enhance your training, racing, and life. It’s the little things and they are usually easy to address. Mike talks about his road back from injury and how it’s helped him re-define “feeling good” while training, which he ultimately believes will make him faster. Also, how Coach Robbie has gotten into his best shape in 4 years. When do you push, when should you pull back? Why you should adapt workouts based on your mood. And, the absolutely simplest way to approach your workouts.

Comfort zones are made to leave, but do we push ourselves out so much that it restricts genuine growth? Today we look at how pulling back to let things soak in will make you a stronger, smarter, and more resilient athlete.
