Vincent Luis is the current World Triathlon Series Champion for 2019, is also the reigning Super League Triathlon Series Champion.  In 2018 Vincent was second in the World Championship rankings for the world triathlon series and in both 2017 and 2018 Vincent took victory in the series grand finals. He’s an athlete that really does know how to execute under pressure.

Vincent started his professional triathlon career in 2005 after shifting over from a very promising Junior swimming career. But as you’ll hear on this episode, Vincent was crowned World Junior Series Triathlon Champion in 2008 and eleven long years later Vincent was crowned World Open Triathlon Champion recently in Lausanne, Switzerland.

During this episode Vincent shares openly around his career highs and his lows including how Vincent nearly quit the sport of triathlon after the disappointment of his Rio Olympic Games campaign where he finished 7th having incurred bone stress injuries to both of his shins just before the Olympic Games. Vincent shares around how a trip to Kenya to get back to basics following his Rio Olympic Games campaign really did save his career, and the learnings that Vincent shares are many including how to deal with pressure and expectation, why it is important as an athlete to recognise that you are not stronger than nature. The challenge that the late Laurent Vidal fellow French Olympian laid down to Vincent on the start line that changed his approach to racing thereafter. Why listening to your body is a must and why Vincent so dearly believes in the mantra that he has tattooed to his chest which says “To have peace, you must prepare for war.”

Sara Hall has had a long and lustrous career including time spent on the track with 1500m, 3000m running, road racing with multiple wins including the 2017 and 2018 of the Gold Coast Marathon’s Half Marathon race clocking at 1:09:27 in 2018 to set the current course record. Sara has also been a team member for USA for the World Cross Country Championships in 2006 and 2015 and was the 2012 American Cross Country Champion.

During this  conversation Sara outlines her 3 Top Tips for Marathoners, how to minimise the risks leading up to a marathon with regards to injury and how a breakthrough can be on the other side of frustration. The concept of needing to absorb your training comes up on multiple occasions as does the concept that has really been a trademark of Sara’s pursuit of her running best over the years and that is the need to persevere. We touched on overcoming the fear of failure, juggling being a mum of four beautiful growing girls, the power of documenting goals visibly including a great story about Sara documenting her 2:22 PB in advance on her mirror and Sara shares around racing fearlessly.

Why fewer athletes that you may perceive are actually overtrained. The critical role that sleep plays in optimising an athlete’s recovery and adaptability to training. The role that life stressors play in an athlete’s recovery. Why it’s okay to not feel great after a training session and why listening to your body and backing off at times are absolutely critical.

This is an incredible story of Irish runners, father and son, Tommy and Eoin Hughes. This story is quite unique because Tommy and Eoin recently set a Guinness World Record of the combined time for a father and son crossing a marathon finish line. This was done at the 2019 Frankfurt Marathon  just several weeks ago where, Tommy, 59 years of age set a World Age record for running a staggering 2:27:52 and Eoin who has just been in the sport of running for 3 years clocked an incredible 2:31:30 on his Marathon debut. The combined time 4:59:22. And this is the story of Tommy Hughes, a 1992 Irish Olympian in the Marathon, a former Melbourne Australia Marathon winner and Multi Marathon winner who has been a lifelong runner. And this is the tale of Eoin who through the bulk of his adult life preferred parties, some drinking and some cigarettes over running shoes.

Tom Evans, a former British Army Captain, made an incredible debut on the Ultra Trail Running scene when he came 3rd in 2017 in the gruelling 251km Desert Ultra Marathon: des Sables. There’s a great story behind this elite performance and debut which includes a bet with some of his former military mates in a pub.

Tom made his debut in his first 100mile race in the other iconic event, The Western States in 2019. Tom picked up a podium spot coming home with a bronze medal to join his bronze medal from representing Great Britain in the World Ultra Trail running championships.

During this episode Tom shares his highs, lows and learning from his remarkable career and there are so many learnings.

Christie Aschwanden is the Lead Writer for Science at 538 and a Health Columnist for the Washington Post. Christie is also a frequent contributor to the New York Times, a contributing Editor for Runner’s World and a contributing writer for Bicycling. Christie’s work appears in dozens of publications including Discover, Slate, Proto, Consumer Reports, New Scientist, More, Men’s Journal and NPR.ORG and the Oprah Magazine. What gives Christie’s work and in particular this New York Times Best Selling Book “Good to Go” such credibility is that Christie has been a lifetime athlete herself.

Christie has raced in Europe and North America on the Team Rosendall Nordick Ski Racing Squad. She is also a lifetime runner and has been an avid cyclist as well. Her book ‘Good to Go’, is really exploring how to aid sleep, rest like a champion. Christie approaches the current explosion which as she terms recovery industrial complex of products and services that sprung up across the last 5 or so years. We’ve all seen the explosion of recovery strategies, recovery centres, compression boots, hot cold baths, cryotherapy chambers, infrared soreness, you name it we’ve all seen and been exposed.

In Good to Go, Christie explores what’s known about recovery for athletes across an evidence continuum, from gimmicky right through the tried, tested and proven benefits of sleep for the athlete.

During this episode, we discuss the importance of monitoring your mood day to day, why prioritising sleep is just so crucial, the reason why we often cling to unproven debunked recovery modalities, the underlying drivers for this boom in recovery products and services, the perils of getting recovery wrong as an athlete in developing over training syndrome. Christie outlines some of the pitfalls of modern sports science research and Christie debunks just a few of the myths and mistaken beliefs that athletes for generations have held onto around things such as hydrating throughout endurance, refuelling post exercise, the use of ice for sports injuries and recovery. The evidence base for and against common recovery rituals such as stretching and foam rolling and so much more.

Dr Stephen Seiler is an American Sports Scientist who now resides in Norway. Stephen has been the past Dean of Faculty of Health and Sports Sciences at the University of Agder in Norway, a former Research and Senior Consultant for the Norwegian Olympic Federation and an Executive Board Member of Directus for the European College of Sports Science. Stephen is acclaimed worldwide amongst Coaches, Researchers, Athletes and Health Professionals for his work into Optimising Endurance Training. Stephen is perhaps best known for his work on Polarised Training. Over 2 decades of Research, Stephen and his team discovered that most endurance athletes spent the majority of their training time at very low intensities. And intensity Stephen claims as Zone 1. The majority of the remaining training time is spent at High Intensity or Zone 3 and quite surprisingly, the world’s best endurance athletes, Cyclists, Rowers, Cross Country Skiers and Distant Runners may spend only 4% at threshold level. Yet as recreational athletes, myself included it is so tempting to feel like we need to make our training sessions harder than likely what is required. And it is this training intensity distribution that has become popularised largely by Dr. Stephen Seiler and known worldwide as the Polarised Training Method. In other terms it has been referred to as 80:20 Training.

During this episode, Stephen covers some fascinating topics including why we are wise to avoid what Stephen refers to as the training intensity blackhole. Why we should be confident in ourself and stick to our plan? Why it maybe wise to do hard workouts with others and easy workouts by ourselves, why simply training at a higher intensity may not get the results we are after as opposed to lengthening out some of our training sessions. The concept of heart rate max and how to calculate this as opposed to heart rate peak, how to determine what training zone you are in, Zone 1, 2 or 3 without lactate testing equipment. Tune in now to hear the many decades of scientific forefront thinking for the acclaimed Sports Scientist Dr. Stephen Seiler on all things optimising training for peak performance and the Polarised Training Approach.
