We recently read another article on about the New England Patriots and Bill Belicheck's philosophy that prompted this discussion. They practice with runs that are only directly related to plays in the game. For example, they may have the kick off team line up then sprint 70 yards. Then, they will have them jog back to the same line and do it one more time, just in case there is a penalty on the last play. 

We wondered how this philosophy could apply to triathlon, and of course, we believe it does.

  • Coaching philosophies across platforms - Belichick returns 
  • It’s Not Always Harder and Faster
  • Consistent ease 
  • The power of lower cadence
  • Keys to not taking days for granted
  • Race pace vs. Race Effort Training 
  • Why Belichick wouldn’t be a fan of super long runs 
  • Training to Hold Power 
  • Vanity FTP and how it distorts your race results
  • How cycling and running training work best together
  • How much running do you have to give up to raise your FTP?
  • Training for Hot Weather When It’s Cold
  • Sauna Training
  • Importance of Sodium

We focus on making our lives easier every single day, but as triathletes, we take a conscious choice to make our lives harder. So, in that vein, things have to change. We have to accept that it isn’t “hard” but it’s a daily routine that we fall into. 

Triathlon is a pressure point. It's like you have this non-stop-dull pain, and triathlon comes along and helps you re-focus a lack of routine or your pain into a more productive way. But once you're in, that process continues as we keep facing new challenges. Now, how can you start shaving 5 seconds off a 100-yard swim? 

"All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and
not enough presence." ― Eckhart TolleThe Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

 Today's Topics: 

  • Answering a common coach question: “Do you think I can do . . . this?”
  • The greatest ability you can have as an athlete
  • The number one obstacle between you and your PRs. 
  • How setting PR goals can hold you back
  • The Positives of Choosing To Make Our Lives Harder
  • How to tell if you’re in a prime zone for your race
  • Managing Expectations Good and Bad
  • C26 Athletes taking 10 seconds off their 100 pool time in January
  • Letting go of the past and your ego.
  • How to reduce dog hair shedding by 80% 
  • What can possibly motivate us to try to shave 4 seconds off our 100 swim time?
  • Get in the Habit of Thinking You Can Do it Today
  • Nick Saban vs. Lane Kiffin
  • When you should think about using hacks
  • 1500+ days of consistent sobriety

Imagine playing basketball in front of 70,000 people and millions on TV. Today's guest, Zak Showalter, did just that for the University of Wisconsin. His career took him to 2 different Final Fours and four Sweet 16's and now he's tackling Ironman.

He's graduated, stepped away from basketball, and turned his sights on Ironman Wisconsin. Our goal for this podcast was to see how many lessons learned from Zak's days at Wisconsin under Hall of Fame coach Bo Ryan translate into triathlon. As it turned out, a lot of them do.

We start with some of Zak’s endurance background and early training challenges. Then go into how what he learned on the basketball floor can be translated into Ironman training: 

  • Were you ever into endurance sports before?
  • What it's like hanging out with Packer's QB Aaron Rodgers 
  • What it was like to work with Michael Jordan’s strength coach
  • When he decided he wanted to do an Ironman 
  • How he deals with Winter training in Wisconsin
  • What's it like going from a high exposure team sport to an isolated training world?
  • A coach’s message “Play hard, play smart, play together, and have fun.”

Race like you train - Zak tells us how what he learned from the daily grind of college basketball practice and how he thinks it can be applied to triathlon training and best set him up for the race.

Ups and Downs - How to stay level headed and on the same path when faced with setbacks of a big loss or the the high of a big win. 

Patience Wisconsin basketball is built on patience, both in execution and sytem. Zak gives us a perspective on how they looked at a long season or career and how the philosophies can apply to Ironman training.

Emotions- He takes us in the locker room before Wisconsin faced off with a 38-0 Kentucky team at the Final Four. How is it possible to stay calm when you’re running out in front of 70,000 people to play a game watched by millions? He gives us a very simple solution. 

Diet: How did you guys eat? Was there a big focus on nutrition or were you just kids? Has that changed as you train for Ironman? 

Here are a couple videos of Zak in his playing days:
- His salute to Aaron Rodgers after hitting a buzzer beater against Florida
- High School State Championship Opening Tip Dunk

This Crushing Iron Podcast is based on a post from our closed Facebook Group: 

“I have a question about being "race ready" for a 70.3. We sign up the previous when we are at "peak performance". The holiday season passes, and you find yourself in January with 4 months to go for your first 70.3, and you can't even imagine being close to "ready". You don't know if you're training too much, or not enough. Any thoughts or help much appreciated!”

It opened the floodgates and we dove into all things self-doubt regarding triathlon. Topics include:

  • Keeping An Eye On The Big Picture 
  • Reflecting on Where You’ve Come From
  • Not Living In A Problem That Doesn’t Exist
  • Recharging 
  • Why Peak Fitness Year Round is Impossible
  • Between Fresh and Fatigued
  • Self-coaching benefits and challenges
  • Beating Negative-Talk Loops
  • Meditation Detox 
  • Mike’s Silent Confessions
  • Peaking too early
  • Why You Should Write About Training
  • The True Benefits of Coaching
  • When You’re In Love, Go There
  • How Do You know You’re going the Right Direction?
  • How Experts Make Our Lives Easier

But this can be the beginning of a bad road. Today we talk about the importance of building your chassis and engine together. It's all about balance, timing, and knowing how to recognize what you really need.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Crushing Iron Podcast. Despite the title, this podcast is more about grace and gratitude.

Today we take a look at how to be thankful for the ABILITY to do triathlon. It's easy to get into a funk, but that doesn't mean your year is ruined and you're not going to have a great season. The key is not BECOMING your rut. When's the last time you were proud of the process of how you emerged from the funk? We may not be where we want to be, but we've made the choice to get there. 

You aren’t today’s workout 
Dark times and Blessings
Not getting ahead of yourself
Gratitude reminders
Experiences vs. Numbers
When You Should Look Back
Bad places are ok, just don’t live there
Crush Whatever You Eat
Recognizing what you’ve done

Squadcasts are ongoing series of interviews with the C26 Athletes. Traditional Crushing Iron Podcasts will continue to release on Monday and Thursday every week.

Imagine being on stage with a panel of judges picking apart every flaw of your body. Erika Jurkowski was there and hated not only that, but the lifestyle. She was bringing her own meals to dinner parties and eating out of Tupperware while everyone else feasted. She wanted to have fun again, so she dove into triathlon with the same passion as bodybuilding. She recently finished Ironman Louisville and today she tells her story on the C26 Squadcast. 

- The challenge that changed her life
- Why body building made her start to hate herself
- Going from 500 calories a day to 500 on a long bike ride
- Fear of the Swim
- What convinced her to leave body building
- From figuring out how to swim to signing up to a Half
- Was she more nervous for a Sprint or Ironman?
- How her lifestyle set her up for the fast track to Ironman
- Her post-Ironman struggles
- What's next?
- The emotional roller coaster of the journey.
- Her favorite part of training for an Ironman

How often do you really push yourself outside of the comfort zone? For a lot of us that happens as we train for our first big race, but after that can come complacency . . . or mediocrity. Today we discuss the complications involved with settling and or staying with a crowd and/or mindset that is holding you back.

Staying in your own lane
Why shrinking your circle is powerful
What are you doing when no one is watching, or listening?
The fear of wasting time
How to remind yourself of your true path on a daily basis
Why so many people “stay average”
The power behind “the little things”
“If I fail more than you, I win.” – Seth Godin
Happiness is not an action, it’s a state.
The C26 Book Club 

Podcast inspired by "Why Most People with Remain in Mediocrity" by Anthony Moore
