Are you quick to pull the "relief plug?" Training for long course triathlon (and living in uncertain times) demands the ability to "stay with the pain" and go through it.

We've all seen the fan get upset with the coach in the first quarter, only to see the team slowly dismantle the opponent over the long haul of the game. It's that mentality, that strategy, that patience that we all have to focus on now. Smart triathletes are managing their body and mind for the long game because no one really knows when racing will start again. What are you doing now that will pay off when that day finally comes?

Topics:

  • Time management
  • When will we be racing
  • Do you have a since of relief?
  • Virtual Ironman racing
  • Why power is so relative
  • Watts per kilogram
  • Every power meter is different
  • How to read power meters that are “off”
  • No one knows . . .
  • There doesn’t feel like an end game
  • The mysterious caldron
  • Life’s pause and time to catch up
  • The Triathlon Rain Delay
  • When momentum turns
  • We want what we can’t have
  • Rekindled love for the sport?
  • Mom and Dad took away the bat and ball
  • The Swim Effect on future races
  • Being tired doesn’t mean you’re more fit
  • The Long term benefits of all this
  • Things we can’t control
  • High fives at future races?
  • Social response when races begin again
  • Connection is medicine 
  • Self service aid stations?
  • What’s your takeaway?

Apr 3, 2020

Today we turned things over to athletes from our Facebook group to guide our discussion. They asked us about maintaining base fitness and mental stability. Live Zoom podcasts. Too much core work? Emerging from this as better humans. Virtual racing. Ethical debates of training outside. Time based vs. Distance training. 

Topics:

  • The Pulse of our community
  • It was race season, now it’s like holiday season again
  • Why peaks and valleys are good
  • Racing to validate yourself
  • What was your reaction to a race cancellation
  • Tempering race expectations

Athlete Questions:

Arin ChristensenWhat does it mean to maintain a good level of base fitness and mental stability in these strange times?

Somer Scandrge Would you and Mike consider doing a live podcast on Zoom while we’re all on there for our weekly meeting??

Kevin Taylor Indoor trainer rides suck 😂

Brad Creamer How to “ramp down” training after your late May IM got postponed?

Ioanna Aslanidou Is there such a thing as too much core strengthening? If you don’t do heavy weights and allow your body time to recover can you have an approach like the one you suggested for how to not suck at running? 

Jacque Wegner I love when you two get all philosophical, so...What about who we are becoming during this time? I'm trying to emerge as a better person than I went into SSAH. Better habits, better mindset, more courageous, better "human".....

Garry Crosby Is it safe, fair or even a good idea that athletes could potentially qualify for 70.3 World championships by Virtual racing

Dorice Hankemeier Your thoughts on the ethical debate of riding bikes outside right now. Getting outdoors is paramount for mental health, but in hard hit areas is a the risk of potential accident worth the risk/strain on the healthcare system. 

Joshua Venis Can you reiterate time based vs distance based training? I always love Robbie’s perspective on this.

Today we open the podcast to Athlete/Listener Questions from our Facebook Group. We hit on how to adjust when your race is canceled, swimming challenges and open water training, and hit on one of Coach's rants about over-dependence on Training Peak graphs and numbers. Meditation. Yoga. Critical thinking. Questions covered below. 

Topics:

  • You Know your body better than anyone
  • Ask yourself these questions
  • Critical thinking
  • The most overrated graph in Training Peaks
  • The biggest thing you need to wrap around your mind
  • Reframe your mindset
  • In order to peak, you have to shed
  • Stop letting Training Peaks drive your life
  •  Is there a swim workout that can be done in open water or is the workout to just swim. Like 500m easy 500m hard.  – Arin Christiensen

  • Feel for the water
  • What’s an acceptable lake temperature for swimming?
  •  When your next race has been postponed until the fall. How do you maintain your current gains in fitness until it’s time for the hard work to start leading up to that race? – Erni Quezada
  • This is my question also. I went straight from a 70.3 to Doing Disney’s Dopey challenge and then a month later did 2 half marathons that were each a PR within 7 days...... and now, nothing until October is on the calendar... I don’t want to lose my fitness. – Julia Mayhew
  • What is the biggest challenge that you think athletes are facing right now - staying motivated? under training? overtraining? Nutrition? - and how best to stay on top of it? – Samual “Arthur” Browning

  • Ironman virtual races for Kona slots?
  • What's an acceptable lake temperature with wet suit, no gloves or boots...
  • This is a question for Mike Tarrolly...you’re a big advocate for yoga and meditation...i could sure use some guidance for diverting my mental and physical energy away from my hospital right now...so is there a particular individual or app that you’d recommend for a beginner looking to incorporate more yoga or meditation to help reduce stress?

So much is unpredictable right now, but as triathletes, we've been training for this. We have solved thousands of little problems through training and racing and those are valuable lessons. The human survival loop goes like this: Trigger, behavior, and reward. If that goes Fear, worry, anxiety, we need to figure out how to break the pattern. Today, we get into going from fear ----> productive/positive behaviors that are usually short term sacrifices that create long term gains. 

Topics:

  • C26 Online Hub Now Open to Public
  • Making sacrifices
  • We are wired for this
  • Endurance for the moment
  • Patience is our strength
  • Short term sacrifice for long term gain
  • Frustration and short fuses
  • Now is the time to adapt
  • The “hunker down” mindset
  • Finding balance in the extremes
  • Spring Cleaning time
  • Fix what you’ve been neglecting
  • Absorb and withstand
  • Weathering the storm
  • How am I gonna get through this?
  • Psychosomatic sickness
  • Let’s make less distractions
  • Robbie’s 90 days without a cell phone
  • Saving spousal units for later in season
  • Do what’s really important
  • That guy or girl in September

Today we look at the coaching philosophy from Dan Lorang who helped make Jan Frodeno and Anne Haug BOTH Ironman Champions in 2019. We don’t always talk about pros, but amateurs can take a LOT away from these approaches to training and racing. The discussion was ignited by this article in from 220 Triathlon. We’ve been talking about a lot of this along the way, but today take a deeper dive into each of the elements both Frodeno and Haug said helped them become champions in Kona.

“His biggest ability is to slow me down, something no one before has ever done. This enabled me to get consistency, and not just amazing training days but actually okay days and good weeks that make very good months and great years.” – Jan Frodeno

CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY
Working for long-term results … identifying their physiology and what workouts they can handle, and build up from there.
“The well being of his athletes is always top priority” - Anne Haug
Slow, very healthy progressions… that peak and hold as long as you can… but never go overboard for a short-term goal.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY -
With distance coaching there is a responsibility of the athlete to listen to their body and give good feedback.
Coaches need to analyze workload.
Supporting and empowering athlete decisions.
Short term decisions for long term results
How to manage Zone 2 Workouts

MANAGE YOUR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
Build a complete triathlete that can react to any race scenario.
Enjoy THAT PROCESS
Ironman is about energy management.
Triathlon is ONE sport.
The swim may take the most effort to manage your weakness
“If you’re behind in the swim, it takes more on the bike to catch up… than it affects your run.” - Jan Frodeno

ESTABLISH TRAINING PHASES -

  1. Technique and vo2max - increase aerobic capacity
  2. Strength and endurance
  3. Economisation and race intervals

“Getting benefit from intervals and not only training long.” - Frodeno

MANAGE THE MOVE TO IRONMAN -
It takes time to adapt to longer distances
Doing it faster risks injuries and failing
“The hardest thing for me when moving up from ITU races was the bike.” - Anne Haug
You have to be able to push big watts for a long period without drafting.

BALANCE IN AND OUTDOOR RIDING
Easier to do intervals on the trainer - safer
Frodeno almost always runs outside.

BUILD RUN STRENGTH OVER SPEED -
Long uphill runs at low intensity for strength
Long runs intervals of 1km race pace 1km easy
You have to build a cake before you add icing
Running for IM racing is more about strength and endurance than speed…. Speed work mostly in prep for 70.3. … This year I couldn’t handle much high intensity - Haug

 

RACE SHARP
Don’t use races as training sessions. When you race, race.
Racing as a performance diagnostic…. prepare… then evaluate
If I’m on the start line, I want to go all-in - Haug

TEMPER NUTRITIONAL EXTREMES -

“…extremes never really work for me. The more I restrict myself, the worse I go.” - Frodeno

DEVELOP YOUR OWN TRI PSYCHOLOGY -

  • Not letting the pressure be too high on yourself
  • Concentrating on yourself and not others in training
  • Think about race tactics and training situations

  • Positive stress
  • Taper Construction
  • Happy Birthday to BOTH of our Moms!

We've always been big on the mind/body connection and showing yourself grace in training and life. Today we look at what it takes to combine the physical and mental aspects of triathlon with a spiritual approach. This is about having faith in the process, giving right effort, paying attention, staying focused and learning through experience to gain wisdom.

  1. Faith – When most people talk about faith, it's tends to be of a blind faith in something. But in this case, he referred to it as "buy in." As in, actually "knowing." If, for example, a friend tells you something that is right several times, you have strong faith in that friend's advice. In the case of training, it means faith in your plan and your direction. Faith here is an open mind and a heart filled with trust so that we can reach levels of the unknown. FAITH ARISES OUT OF SEEING AND KNOWING FOR YOURSELF. INSPIRES AN OUTPOURING OF ENERGY.
  2. Effort – Obviously effort is the one thing we control and putting yourself into something without doubt (having faith) allows you to give more. You trust the plan, the movement, the path. And effort separates the achievers from the dreamers. Talent is one thing, but effort usually beats it.
  3. Mindfulness – This is at the core of everything we do. Are you here, right now, in the moment with what you're doing. This applies to everything we do in triathlon, including diet, fueling, and recovery. The more we are mindful of taking care of our body, the more it will be connected to what we would like it to do. PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT’S GOING ON IN US AND AROUND US. LISTENING TO THE BODY.
  4. Focus – We believe in what we're doing, we're giving the right effort in a mindful way, now it's about focus. This really comes into play as we get close to a race. This isn't about squeezing your brain, though. It's a relaxed focus and the embrace of what many call a flow state. Just be with whatever is there. If you feel pain, fatigue, etc., don't judge yourself, just acknowledge it and move on. FOCUS ARISES NATURALLY OUT OF MINDFULNESS. ONE POINTED ATTENTION. IF YOU’RE MINDFUL OF YOUR BREATH, YOUR FOCUS MOVES WITH IT.
  5. Wisdom – We only gain wisdom through experience. By going through something, otherwise it's just a collection of your memories about something else deducing the best solution you can. Most times it's not real. We have to live something to really know what it's like. That's the importance of what going through a training plan gives and why I'm such a big proponent of writing things down. Thoughts, feelings, etc. Cement that wisdom so you can move forward with better solutions to problems you may face.

Repeat.

Are you pushing your body beyond its adaptive threshold? It's a fine line and often the difference between burnout/flatline and real, sustainable improvement. Today is about "simple" but often neglected daily reasons you may not be improving. So, how do we break the cycle of little habits that are holding us back? 

Sleep

  • Make the time
  • It’s the littlest big thing
  • This is where recovery happens

How You Eat

  • From wake up to bedtime
  • Sleep sets your diet
  • Do you think less is more?
  • Is your fuel watered down?
  • How you start sets the tone
  • Breaking the cycle

Going Too Hard Too Often

  • Tapping into reserve vs. expanding it
  • It’s a gap between consistency and frequency
  • Respect your body
  • Going over the adaptation threshold
  • Minimal effective dose
  • Load management

Not Listening to Your Body

  • If not it will not listen to you
  • “It’s not that bad”
  • Pay attention
  • Always work on imbalance

Not addressing niggles and pain

  • Your body will do things to protect itself
  • Inflammation
  • Life is saying take a day off
  • Stay ahead with prevention

You are obsessed with Longer

  • Do you HAVE to do an Ironman?
  • Develop and be well rounded
  • Space out Ironman to find real improvement
  • Where does speed work fit into the toolbox?
  • Hill work as speed work
  • Do you work on skills you won’t use?

We just hit the 1 Million download number and today we use our "Just Show Up" analogy and translate it to training. We dive into questions like, "Why do we constantly face the challenge of getting over the hump to train today?" We also talk about the trouble of setting hard goals and learning to have fun in the process. It's not about the end game as much as it is about doing something now that is moving you in the right direction. 

Topics:

  • The power of two
  • The hardest part of swim, bike, run
  • Mindset as we inch closer to races
  • How to free up your training
  • How to enjoy the process
  • Attaching success to performance
  • The problem with comparison
  • How outcome based goals can run our lives
  • Taking conditions into account
  • What it takes to Qualify or podium
  • Fury Wilder analogy
  • Why time goals can feel like drowning
  • Does it feel like “you”
  • Intention and effort are what matters
  • Attraction not promotion
  • The Quick fix tendency
  • Addicted to perfection
  • Pick one journey and process
  • Why we keep starting over
  • Suffering is craving something you don’t have
  • When we over train
  • Compartmentalizing guilt

Today, we open the podcast to listener questions from our Facebook Group (search Crushing Iron Group). They range from bike periodization, to maintaining fitness without a race scheduled, to benefits of training for time vs. mileage, handling missed time due to illness, short course vs. long course training, pilates, how each discipline helps the others, 70.3 nutrition and marathon training, strength training . . . and more. Questions are bolded below.

YA Man! Can you talk about bike workout periodization and what structures build overall strength that increase the ability to translate into faster bike splits?

  • Allergies or Sick?
  • Base, build, race specifics, intensities,
  • Athletes response to specific stimulus
  • If something’s working, why change it?
  • Attention to detail vs. lazy

For those not racing but want to keep in some reasonable shape/fitness to where they could build back toward racing in the future, what are some tips to navigate that time?

  • What fits your schedule?
  • Have fun and do variety?
  • Be grateful you can
  • Get off Netflix
  • Your body could be thanking you

If we MUST eat solid food on the bike during an IM, what are the best options?

  • So varied but we’re all different
  • What you can and want might be different than what you should.
  • Depends on intensity
  • Whatever it is, practice for your gut
  • You have to fuel for the run
  • Bike calories are easier to take
  • Experiment NOW on the trainer

Can the "How to not suck at running" method work for a 11 year old girl who wants to run a half marathon?

  • Working with youth is so much different

I know y’all have discussed this before but would be great to get a good explanation of training off time versus mileage. I don’t need the explanation for myself (time all the way) but I have a hard time conveying the idea to others that think mileage is the most important.

  • Your body only knows time and perceived effort
  • Understanding the weekly volume of stress
  • Wind, terrain, overall stress all matter
  • People force themselves out of their zone

Awesome! How do you coach an athlete who misses 3-5 consecutive days of a high-volume block due to illness? Obviously there’s a lot of individual variability here, but missing nearly 10 hours of training is mentally challenging..not to mention your body hasn’t moved in days. Just wondering how you would suggest re-introducing training within a high-volume block.

  • You can’t just make things up, you should re-work things
  • We need to figure out why and lessen the stress
  • Wait 24 hours even after you feel good again
  • Catch up doesn’t work

I feel like Mike is not being himself lately. Can we just work in a few YEA MANS?!? Mike has to continue to be the Mike we have grown to love - don’t change Mike!! Be yourself!

Also what will it take to get Mike Tarrolly to resume his signature <dramatic pause> yea man riff. We need a solid yea man in the pod today to resume consistency.

What’s the fastest tt bike in the world?

  • The one ridden by the fastest cyclist

You touched on it a little in the last podcast about the minimal differences needed between short course and long course base training, but could you further talk about any differences in training philosophy between those doing short course vs long course tris...maybe specifically in similarities and differences in workout types.

  • Generally it’s volume
  • Z1 and Z2 volume is still incredibly valuable
  • Sprints and Olys are still about durability

Do we really have to do strength training?

  • Should you? It depends on goals and time available

When overcoming a shoulder injury and beginning to swim, should strength training be incorporated into the training in conjunction with swimming to build up the upper body from lack of use? 

  • Don’t underestimate body weight work

Does the time of day you do a workout matter? Is morning best?

  • Let your day, feeling and energy dictate

Best way to prepare for a 70.3 in six weeks with four hours of training time a week? Mostly kidding. Best bang for your buck for improving swim speed - swim coach or just more swimming sessions? Both? Take up duathlons instead?

What’s your take on Pilates?

How does each discipline (swim, bike, run) impact and improve the other disciplines? Example; cycling to running. Or swimming to cycling. Any benefits of focusing on one discipline over the others?

  • They all help each other, but it is athlete dependent and on their history

IM long training day/race nutrition. Have always struggled with feeling depleted once I hit the 4-5 hour mark. Have a real hard time with all the sugar from Gels/Gatorade. Is it just a matter of training your gut?

Is it normal feel like 💩 after a very long endurance race? Or is it a sign that you: didn’t fuel right, pushed too hard, didn’t train enough, etc. I have felt completely drained after each of my marathons, and I’ve always wondered if that’s normal or if I should have done something different.

  • Marathons will leave you trashed
  • But . . . there are varying degrees of trash

Advice for beginners! I am learning that there is a lot more than I thought that I don’t know. I am sometimes intimidated and don’t want to look “dumb” to more advanced triathletes

  • Find good people to surround yourself with
  • Get their good advice
  • Have fun with what you’re doing

Is your happiness connected to contingency events? “If I get this, then I will be that?” The key to getting the results you want is building the little habits and not looking back with the idea that you “should have” done this or that. “If I get this, then I will be that” is a dicey way to live. We are all in the process of life and training. Success doesn’t equal safety, because there’s never gonna be a time when we say, “Yep, I’m done.” Today, the art of creating your own reality to face triathlon with a positive and fun attitude that adds purpose to your training and ultimately leads to ongoing success.

  • Things are things until we give them meaning
  • What’s next, what’s next, what’s next?
  • Let go of your mistakes
  • We think success means safety
  • About the Process
  • Is today what you dreamed of 3 years ago?
  • There’s never going to be a time when you say, “yep, I’m done.”
  • It’s time to create new habits, not results
  • Look back on what you’ve overcome
  • Appreciating the process
  • What are you doing right?
  • What are the minority of my actions that drive the majority of results
  • 50 things half done and nothing finished
  • Creating tangible successful opportunities

  • Believe what you believe and let it lead
  • It’s easy to be, and okay to be wrong

Most of us aren't in our 20's anymore, but we tend to think like that when it comes to speed work. Today, we look at the Aerobic Base Phase of training and explain how it is the key to getting faster in triathlon. We hit on the 80/20 rule, track workouts, what happens when you skip progressions. When is going hard actually worth it?

Topics:

  • Base phase conversation starts at 12:00
  • Is Robbie going Vegan?
  • How we eat
  • Aerobic base importance
  • You can never be in base phase too long
  • Building endurance and skills
  • What athletes tend to bypass
  • Reverse periodization?
  • Training for Sprints and Olympics
  • When going hard is actually worth it
  • Not anti track, but build so it matters
  • Going slow to get fast
  • It’s all relative
  • 80/20 or 90/10?
  • There’s no such thing as “bad” aerobic work
  • Slow cooking your fitness
  • The margin of error base vs. fitness
  • You can’t keep pushing the boundaries
  • Is your approach injury prone?
  • Training availability is the key
  • Better safe than sorry
  • Don’t sacrifice the day for the week
  • What if you’re behind as the race nears?
  • Sacrificing your health with one bad decisions
  • Skipping progressions
  • The body doesn’t care

It’s not about who’s fastest, it’s about who slows down the least. You need energy to be motivated and self-imposed stress sucks the life out of you. Today we talk about trending vs. tracking your training, banking sleep, and remembering to play like a kid. Also, the anxiety from attachment, looking at data from the wrong perspective and why getting slower isn't really a thing. 

Topics:

  • One Common Vision
  • Getting out of yourself
  • Lost in our own thoughts
  • How do we get from THERE to HERE?
  • Remembering what it’s like to be a kid
  • Being in the moment with so many distractions
  • Don’t forget to have fun 15:00
  • Thinking and energy
  • Scratching that itch
  • Data in the wrong perspective
  • Trending vs. tracking
  • Anxiety and attachment
  • Being compelled to compare
  • Labeling as pass or fail
  • Give yourself credit for doing it
  • It’s hard … 99% of people don’t do this……
  • accumulated fatigue….
  • Aerobics?
  • Getting slower isn’t a thing
  • How good can you be for the long haul
  • How do you get over being kicked in the face?
  • Stress masks fitness
  • Ego and decisions
  • Can you bank sleep?
  • Accumulated Sleep
  • The Power of Consistency

It's hard to always stay motivated yet easy to slip off the rails. And one of the biggest traps is comparing ourselves to others. Today, Mike talks about how this has happened to him since his father passed, but also how it's help remind him that we shouldn't take health and fitness for granted. The guys open up about intention and struggles in an effort to find the best ways to appreciate training as a process. You can never be "the old you" so embrace where you're going. 

Topics:

  • Tough time of year
  • Mike’s training struggles
  • That’s why intention was so important
  • Don’t compare yourself to others
  • Afraid we won’t be able to dig deep
  • How quickly we can lose it
  • The power of honesty and openness
  • Fast and slow are relative
  • It’s enough to know we’re heading in the right direction
  • Thrive to be in a process
  • Drowning yourself in expectations
  • Building on yesterday
  • When accolades lead to complacency
  • Do you really want to be a new you?
  • So much pressure on a day or race
  • Thoreau - Be a new man in the same old clothes
  • Wisdom is knowing that you don’t know everything
  • Do you really want to get back to the old you?

Today’s podcast is all about how workouts link together and why life outside of training is an important factor in the decision process. Your mind and body aren’t always telling the same story, so it’s important to truly understand effort and its relationship to the big picture. When you trust the purpose of today’s workout, that sets you up for more consistency tomorrow and the week, which leads to more success in both training and racing. Managing stress (good and bad) is at the core of happy and healthy training.

Topics:

  • Topic starts around 8:00 mark
  • Today's Impact on Tomorrow
  • Quick Super Bowl talk
  • Mike’s meditation
  • Today’s Session’s Impact on Tomorrow
  • Gauging effort as you go
  • Decisions are connected
  • Not negatively impacting the next session
  • Digging a hole and recovering
  • Decision making
  • First, Understand the purpose
  • Looking at your week as a meal
  • What to do if you’re fatigued
  • Understanding why a workout was good or bad
  • Decision making in training is the most exhaustive part
  • Consistent training means longer warm ups
  • The difference between fast and strong
  • The Global picture of an athlete’s week
  • The sponge analogy
  • Managing stress
  • Getting out of your head
  • Don’t look back - every season of life is different
  • PRs can be over valued

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.

  • 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

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?
