How do you prioritize Endurance, Strength and Speed training for different courses and races? It should be a balance, but not always in even proportions. We look at priority and periodization based on goals. Why big gears aren't just strength work. Overusing muscles. Return on your swim stroke investment. Why you get sore arms while swimming and sore legs on transition runs. Connecting endurance, strength and speed training. 

Topics:

  • Mike says, “Yeah, man”
  • Do you prefer a race on the calendar?
  • Getting consistent
  • What sparked Mike to get going?
  • Prioritizing and periodizing based on goal
  • Big Gear work - not just strength work
  • Building pathways of better communication
  • Balancing strength work
  • Hamstrings on bike and run
  • Overuse of muscles
  • Stretching and discomfort
  • Where to look if you have pain
  • Cycle stroke compared to swim stroke
  • Swimming with the water vs. through it
  • Why you need to finish your swim stroke
  • Getting return on your stroke investment
  • Why your arms hurt in the beginning of swims
  • Why legs hurt on transition runs
  • Connecting it all
  • 3 different sports that all have similarities
  • Connecting by disconnecting

Many of us get into triathlon to figure out who we really are and that process is more effective and enjoyable if we love the sport. And loving the sport is a process. Today, we reflect on Kobe Bryant’s life and his passion for, not only the game, but everything he did, and tie it into our daily approach with triathlon. Kobe’s death is a painful reminder that life is fragile and triathlon is much more than just the numbers – it’s about community, connection and helping others. Today is about finding your sweet spots in training and appreciating the little things to make net gains.

Topics:

  • The power of a little break
  • Goaded by peer pressure
  • Kobe Bryant’s impact on us
  • Painful reminders of how fragile life is
  • Overcomplicating what matters
  • Life is hard enough without complicating it
  • Combining love for the sport with wanting to be the best we can be
  • Burnout rate
  • Type-A Celebration
  • Becoming your best, not “the” best
  • Is Triathlon a “net gain” for you?
  • Slowing down the least
  • Chasing PRs
  • Figuring out who you are as a person
  • Breaking up the rocks - uncovering your the truth is often painful
  • Love what you love

We get into the sport to grow and become more confident, but . . . what do we do in those weak moments? The best athletes (and people) are always learning. Today, we look at a lot of examples we experience in coaching and how we approach insecurities that pop up in training. The stress of missing workouts, injuries, worry about not being ready, judging ourselves too harshly, etc. Training should be a way to become more whole and not judge ourselves by comparison. Learn your limits and how to approach them in a positive way.

Topics:

  • Do you think you’ll be ready?
  • The obsession with wanting to know and predict
  • Adding “judgements to our plate”
  • Do you need to do MORE?
  • Making up missed workouts
  • Does not getting a PR mean you’re slower?
  • Was this session good enough?
  • Who are you letting down?
  • Do you think that race is a good idea?
  • The endless puzzle
  • You just don’t know
  • Are you where you thought you’d be?
  • Over-judging yourself
  • Sitting with yourself
  • You shouldn’t be stressed about something that gives you joy
  • The ability to take days off
  • The three P’s of stress
  • Training to heal or be whole
  • Learning from overtraining
  • Leaving wiggle room for life
  • Depression and anxiety

We are by no means experts, but today we take an open look at the never ending debate over weight loss and proper race weight. Everything is on the table including body image, guilt, shame, binge eating, strength vs. optimum weight, and power per kilo. Triathlon is often a road to weight loss, but changing a lifestyle comes with a lot of stress and cutting calories is a slippery slope. We talk about finding your race weight and when to be at it. So many diets, so many choices, but what works best for you?

Topics: 

  • Go too hard too soon
  • Proving yourself in practice 
  • Weight Control
  • Body image
  • Strength vs Weight
  • Power per kilos
  • Comparing to other people
  • Binge eating
  • Hydration and diet
  • Stress and pounding and weight
  • Periodizing your training
  • “Perfect” Race Weight
  • Giving the body time to adjust
  • Changing too much at once
  • Societal categories
  • Intuitive eating
  • What’s best for you?

There's not much like the mind games you play with yourself at the end of a race. We call it "internal bargaining." Whether it a half or full Ironman or Marathon, it usually comes back to effort and execution. Today we look at how that breaks out within a marathon and the strategies you can use to talk yourself through the pain while keeping your pace.

Topics:

  • Hydrating for more than a one day event
  • Execution when things are out of control
  • Execution vs. Time goals
  • Breaking down the Dopey Challenge
  • How do you define racing?
  • Run form variation with pace
  • Stride rate and turnover
  • In-race recovery
  • Relaxing within the stride
  • Changing stride to mix it up
  • 2:10 wake up call??
  • Is the marathon the hardest event?
  • Back to back compensation sessions
  • Internal race bargaining
  • Biting things in small pieces

To be a good runner, you have build in a way that makes sense. In Part 2 of our How To Not Suck at Running (part one is episode #317) Coach Robbie talks about how to work in tempo and negative split mentality in a way that tests adaptation, but doesn't beat you down when adding more swim and bike volume. In triathlon, you "get faster" by being able to exert more energy late in the run. As we've said a million times, it's not about going faster as much as it is, who slows down the least. 

Topics:

  • One size fits all in training?
  • Do it more and do it smarter
  • How do we make running more enjoyable?
  • Alleviating injuries
  • Finding the time to balance running and triathlon
  • Light a fire, don’t burn it all down 
  • Phase 1 - 6 runs a week
  • Phase 2 - Build/Race Specific
  • Adding a Zone 3/Half Marathon Effort
  • Turn a medium run into a tempo run
    • Duration will vary among athletes
    • Be careful adding intensity
  • Beware the dangerous Pace Game
    • Learn to run by effort
    • Picking a pace is like picking watts
  • Mileage vs. Time
  • Intensify or Extend?
  • What about track workouts??
  • How to implement your Tempo Run
  • The delay of fatigue
  • The Negative Split Long Run
  • Mastering the mentality of not obsessing about the overall workout number
  • Always go with effort
  • Fatigue increase and need for more warm up
  • Understanding effort build and hold
  • Raising effort to hold a pace
  • Patience, pacing, and execution

If you're looking for a great custom coaching plan, please check out the new C26 Systems Plan for 2020 at the new c26triathlon.com.

Most times the best solution for fear, pain, and suffering is to simply Lean Into It. Life throws a lot of curveballs overthinking can be a curse.

The guys talk about how that applies directly to training and racing. 

Topics:

  • Play triathlon - it’s a game
  • Too much thinking
  • A rough start to Mike’s New Year 
  • Just because it’s familiar doesn’t mean necessary
  • Slow down to be faster
  • Trim away the fat
  • Get rid of the noise

Most of us think of quality sessions as our “long run” or tough intervals on the trainer. We’re here to tell you that way of thinking is a myth. Just because something is harder doesn’t make it more important. Today we look at the concept of quality training and what that means for a short run, a recovery swim or an easy spin on the trainer. Become more in tune with each workout by adjusting the mindset of your training.

  • Putting workouts on a pedestal
  • Workouts you remember are ones you didn’t see coming
  • What are you gonna learn today?
  • Listening to yourself on workouts
  • What Mike learned his mom’s puzzle building
  • Running to YOUR best form
  • Every session can and should be quality
  • What makes us quit

How do we get stronger and faster? Hit more PRs? The simple truth is repetition and adaptation. Mastering one thing is hard enough, but triathlon is 3 sports. The time, the energy, and the focus can seem daunting until we clean up the weeds in our lives and create the right amount of space to handle the load. Today is about how we get stronger by getting clear on who we are, creating habits, and mastering ourselves.

Topics:

  • Master yourself first
  • Why did we come to triathlon?
  • Life changes
  • Internal tug-of-war
  • Mastery is repetition
  • Find out who we are, know ourselves, apply our nature
  • Negative Self-talk
  • Minimizing imperfections
  • Re-inventing the wheel
  • Taking away pressure of focusing on yourself
  • Endurance sports and depression
  • Cutting corners, deviations, panic
  • Don’t be an idiot, be consistent
