Peter Bol is the current Australian 800m Champion. He was the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Australian Olympian, a team which he qualified for after just 5 years in the sport of athletics. Peter has been an Australian athletics representative at the World Athletics Championships in Doha in 2019. As you’ll hear today he missed the selection for the Commonwealth Games in 2018 on the Gold Coast and Peter boasts a personal best in the 800m on 1:44:56, the fifth all time Australian best time.

During this episode, Peter takes us through the chronology of his time in the sport of athletics, touching on careers highs, lows and learnings. Choosing between athletics and basketball and the unlikely start to the sport of athletics, growing up in Sudan before spending time in Egypt and finally moving to Australia at 10 years of age.

Stacy Sims has spent the last two decades researching in female physiology to optimise women's training nutrition, recovery and hydration needs. Dr. Stacy Sims is the author of ROAR: How to match your food and fitness in female physiology for optimum performance, great health and a strong lean body for life. It is a must-read book, not only for female athletes but also any males in their corner, health professionals, fitness professionals or anyone that values helping others perform at their own physical best. I have devoured the pages of Roar and it largely serves as a platform for our discussion and deep dive into all things female physiology and endurance training.

Dr Stacy Sims has contributed to the exercise physiology and sports nutrition fields for more than two decades not only as a Scientist but also an athlete. Stacy served as an Exercise Physiologist and Nutrition Scientist at Stanford University from 2007 to 2012 specialising in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance.  Stacy has also been an elite athlete herself, along with extensive experience working with athletes from all levels; beginners right through to Olympians and Tour de France cyclists.

In 2012, Stacy Sims left her full-time academic position at Stanford University to start her own consultancy practice and to further the dissemination of science into the real world applications for athletes, coaches, educators and colleagues.

During this Expert edition we will explore female athlete physiology across the lifespan. We discuss menopause, pregnancy, menstruation 101, the old contraceptive pill, exercise recovery, fuelling for female athletes, all around the different phases of the menstruation cycle and Dr Stacy Sims answers some listener questions.

Brett Robinson recently smashed the decade long Australian Half Marathon record running a very swift 59:57 at the Marugame Half Marathon in Japan. And of course, we discussed that incredible run on today’s episode. A run that saw Brett, net quite noble but cool title of Strava’s Fastest Ever Half Marathoner.

Brett shares around career highs including his fantastic 2019 London Marathon debut where he ran an incredible 20:10:55 after going through the halfway mark at 63:25 and embracing the blow up as Brett returns on the back end of that Marathon.

We talk about running the final of the 5000m in Rio in 2016 Olympic Games and a very funny little tale that Brett shares on why and how the finals were held up for 15 minutes after Brett forgot his race bib.

We discuss the low points of Brett’s career, the multiple femoral stress reactions and what happens when pacing goes terribly wrong in a marathon. There’s plenty of learnings as well, altitude training, strength and conditioning, the power of self-belief, learnings taken from Eliud Kipchoge and the pacemakers of the INEOS 159 Challenge of which Brett contributed to. Brett shares his top three Marathon tips, a physical challenge for the week and so much more.
