Last week we said, “this isn’t rocket science,” and today we take it further with talk about how you should train to be resilient, smart, and strong. We talk about athletes who “out-think” the competition. We get into the psychology of “letting someone go” on the race course. How your body should lead the way in training. Fatigue masks your actual fitness. A simple overall race strategy that will set you up for success. The purpose of “bricks” and a reaction coming out of T2 that shows us you’re set up for a solid finish. 

Topics:

  • Chattanooga is hopping
  • Bell Biv Devoe 
  • Re-Live-In-Person-Races
  • Outsmarting the competition 
  • Ultimate control and confidence
  • Hot out of the gate
  • Excited and taking chances
  • When you want to be predictable
  • The purpose of bricks
  • Your range of of race projections 
  • The goal is Total Time
  • Rolling starts kind of blow 
  • The patience to “let someone go”
  • The temptation is to goooooo 
  • I KNOW I can hold this 
  • The fear of sticking with a pace
  • Accepting how you feel
  • Self-love and acceptance when training
  • “Trying” to make yourself feel better 
  • Energy expenditure starts when you hit the water
  • Resilient, smart, and strong
  • Fatigue masks fitness 
  • VO2 Max and long races
  • Practice making race decisions
  • Coaches aren’t dictators - you race alone
  • The best reaction you can make out of T2

This is NOT the “top ten things to be fast.” This cast is about simplicity and why it works in training and our lives. Everyone’s life and training is different, but there are proven formulas for success. If you’re not healthy, energized, and happy with your life, there’s a good chance your training is not on the right path. We explore the idea of “why so many of us want to feel smashed” and why that flies in the face of being comfortable in our own skin. We also address the postponement of Ironman Texas (again) and ask . . . why?

Topics:

  • Load me up, Coach
  • Ironman Texas Postponed Again (this is towards the end)
  • March Madness Brackets and Picking Homers 
  • We are not experts 
  • Knowing Yourself and What You Really Need
  • Youthful energy and the ability to be surprised
  • Shifting perspectives 
  • Coaching is not in a vacuum
  • Variety in training
  • How we all become addicts
  • “Things are going great, so I thought I’d do this . . . “
  • It’s not that complicated
  • Why do we want to feel smashed?
  • The point is to come back tomorrow and be ready
  • Goal: Comfort in your own skin
  • The simplest principles and why they work
  • We innately know what is best for us
  • When something is “new” we don’t know how it will work
  • What’s your best long-term plan
  • County lines and the logistics of Ironman racing

How should we approach our first race back? We suggest looking at it like a controlled scrimmage or dress rehearsal. In other words, a spring board to a great season. If you watched Challenge Miami you probably saw that even the Pro triathletes were a bit rusty. As races come into view it may be time to step back and recalibrate your approach. That doesn’t mean you have to be slower, but your early races after a long time off should probably be setting you up for something later. Find your own perfection without the pressure. 

Topics:

  • Daylight Savings Time
  • Sleep 
  • Challenge Miami Re-cap
  • Pro Triathletes Rusty in Transition
  • Robbie got Goosebumps/ Mike Forgot
  • Transitioning to living/racing after 2020
  • Rusty Racing — Like an organized scrimmage
  • It’s time to step out into the world of racing
  • Races and safety protocol 
  • Spectators??
  • It won’t “feel” like a practice game
  • Aim Low and finish high
  • Ease into each segment 
  • Racing as a dress rehearsal 
  • Perfection without the pressure
  • Virtual Racing Pitfalls
  • Game day speed
  • Bike comfort in a race after living on a trainer 
  • Getting outside
  • The Number 1 Goal You Should have with your first race back

Triathlon can seem like a recipe for aches and pains, but is it the sport or something else you’re doing? Today, we look at active healing and moving therapy. We also look at why your metrics may be holding you back and look at the powerful logic of racing without your watch. There’s nothing better than “controlling” your race and being one with the energy. Fatigue, volume, pain, living on the edge of injury and racing free. It’s all here.

Topics:

  • Race Tracking is back!! 
  • Emoji Etiquette
  • Being on the edge of injury
  • Are we ever 100%?
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • The mystery of shoulder pain
  • Movement therapy
  • When a week off feels like forever
  • Shit catches up with us . . . 
  • Work your way backwards to figure out the real problem
  • How did I get into this situation?
  • Active recovery, healing and the taper analogy 
  • Run warm up . . . 
  • Fatigue/volume/pain
  • “I didn’t feel good at first”
  • The first 2-400 meters of the swim
  • Running off the bike
  • Reminding yourself what racing feels like 
  • No bike computer in your race?
  • Racing without a watch… 
  • Controlling your race
  • Too many metrics?
  • Your watch is like a backseat driver

Isn’t all this about feeling good and having more energy? Today, we look at self-judgement, what makes for successful training, and how you should judge effort. We look at good stress, finding consistent energy and removing guilt. Don’t tell me, show me. The cramming mentality. Spreading ourselves too thin. Judging yourself and making everything a competition. Most often it’s just best to ask, “What do I need to do for my soul today?”
