"The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there." –Vince Lombardi

Sometimes triathlon can eat you alive, but when we’re down, we can only control one thing . . . our reaction. Today, we talk about emotions and how they can drag us down in training, and ultimately races. We can’t control the weather, the pool lanes, or outside factors in life, so how do we lean in instead of walking away? Today’s success is one positive decision away, if we can stay out of our feels.

Topics:

  • The C26 Texas Road trip
  • Ironman 70.3 Waco Recap
  • Be prepared for the unprepared
  • Cold and windy in Texas in August
  • Tougher swim than they thought
  • Surprisingly hilly run
  • You can’t control the weather
  • You can choose your attitude
  • Do you put yourself into adversity?
  • The comfort of comfort
  • Are you all up in your feelings?
  • Are DNF’s a bad thing?
  • Being calm within chaos
  • Tough Love
  • Perfect conditions
  • How do you get through the tough stuff
  • Reacting and responding to bad situations
  • Are you rigid and stuck in your ways?
  • Not understanding the moment

Most of us are in the transitional period (off season) and today we talk about how to re-locate passion and fun in your life (and the sport).

  • Chasing “one more race”
  • Navigating the “interim”
  • Off season decompressing
  • Balance and Boundaries
  • When you get hooked in a pattern

  • Pace someone else
  • So many options, what do we pick?
  • The opportunities we miss
  • Self discovery
  • We’re always late to our own party
  • FOMO of the brain
  • The Triathlon Blinders
  • Common Sense Approach is Unique?

The faces told the story, and the obvious topic from Ironman Chattanooga is the tough conditions–but how did athletes that raced well handle heat better than others? Today, we dig deeper into why expectations can turn into future resentments and why the toughest race you'll ever face is the one you're training for. What we learned from Chattanooga and how tough days like this help us find our "why." 

Topics:

  • Lots of hot action
  • The toughest race you’re going to do
  • Assuming things before the race
  • Fried off the bike
  • Truly knowing your body
  • Displays of toughness
  • Out there alone finding your why
  • Attaching ourselves to outcomes
  • Finding your why not
  • Comparing races
  • Think about the obstacles you overcame
  • Expectations are future resentments
  • You can’t “win” every day
  • When you speak things into existence
  • Put for the effort, execute, and listen to yourself
  • Are you worried about disappointing your coach?
  • We’re never really “there”
  • Change is a Process
  • Internalizing your pressure

Who wins? An athlete with the most talent or the one who makes the best decisions? In long course racing, we lean toward the latter.

Topics:

  • Talent vs. Discipline and Execution
  • Racing in Heat
  • Mental, Physical, Emotional for Heat
  • When athletes forgo being smart
  • Times vs. Overall vs. the Field
  • Is Mike doing Louisville?
  • An official bonk
  • Racing Risky vs. Haphazard
  • Stay cool as long as you can
  • It’s rarely your run to blame
  • Giving up time on the bike
  • Knowing the athlete’s strengths as a coach
  • Don’t be fooled by temps on the bike
  • Can you enjoy a bike pass?
  • Self-sabotage
  • Never compare races
  • Decisions decide the outcome later

  • Spending more energy to get it done now
  • Delegating your energy throughout the race
  • Ironman Wisconsin Tribute Video

Today we stare down the barrel of brutally honest reflection on the training we’ve done for a particular race. How do we genuinely solve our problems. Were we lulled to sleep by peaking too early? Did you confuse a weakness for a strength? Did you run too far and not enough? Midway through this cast Robbie asks Mike a question that may entirely change the way he trains. 

Topics: 

  • How do you feel after races?
  • When we get a case of the BUT’S?
  • Are you energized by the challenge?
  • Getting better with age?
  • Problem solving as a coach
  • Not being distracted by what didn’t work
  • Are shorter builds better?
  • 70.3 vs Ironman Training
  • Peak Phase 5-7 Weeks?
  • 1/2 marathon vs. an easy 17 miles
  • Peaking too early?
  • False sense of security
  • Interval cycling
  • Running Frequency vs. Distance
  • Double Ride Weekends are King
  • Long runs overrated?
  • Getting Tired Doesn’t Mean You’re fitter
  • When more training makes you slower
  • How to appropriately challenge yourself
  • 35% Long Run formula
  • Are you mistaking your strength?
  • Who slows down the least defined

Mike raced, and Robbie coached over 20 athletes to the finish line at Ironman Wisconsin. Today, they talk about the experience both from on and off the course. The washing machine of a swim and how that can affect the rest of the race. The ever present onslaught of hills. And the deceivingly tough run course. They also talk about what it was like to experience Madison with a huge throng of C26 athletes and their families. All that, plus thoughts on how you should the Ironman course that’s best for your mind and body.

Mike and Robbie celebrate #300 podcast by recording in front of a live audience in Madison, Wisconsin. Today, they are joined by 2011 Ironman Wisconsin winner, Jessica Jacobs. Jessica is a former pro and current C26 athlete who is back racing as an amateur after hitting the bottom as a pro. She talks about how she found the Crushing Iron podcast, her run duel with Meredith Kessler at Ironman Wisconsin and how she has found a new peace with racing.

We feel like the world is watching and our time will define us, but racing success is in the effort and execution. There are a lot of little things we can do before and during a race to ease the load. Putting all these goals, specifically time related may be unfair to yourself and will certainly increase the weight and the burden of what is already a big enough challenge. 

  • Let Speed and Strength Come To You
  • The off-season is exciting
  • What happens when we chase results
  • When emotions force poor choices
  • This is MY year
  • Social Media Motivation is So Easy
  • Race Day Positive Thought
  • Controlling Controllables 
  • Let the Race Come to You
  • Execution and Effort 
  • The Biggest Weight You Carry on Race Day
  • Letting go of the burdens
  • What if the Swim is Long??

  • You don’t know what your day’s like until mile 80
  • When you have zero expectations
  • Relieving yourself of the decision making process
  • The Brain is your CEO 
  • Acknowledge the Day . . . then accept the outcome

  • Transition Explanation
  • Swim Line up
  • Sighting tips
  • Coming into transition
