Jonny Brownlee is the Olympic Games Triathlon Silver Medallist and the London Olympic Games 2012 Triathlon Bronze Medallist.  Jonny was the World Triathlon Series Champion in 2012, Silver Medallist in the World Championship in 2013 and 2016, Commonwealth Games Silver Medallists in 2014, Former u23 World Triathlon Champion in 2010 and staggeringly from July 2010 to May 2014 Jonny finished on a podium in every race he entered which was 42 races in a row.

Jonny is the younger brother of the Brownlee brothers; the brothers are not just triathlon history makers but world sport history makers. In 2012 Jonny and his elder brother Alistair became the first brothers together on a podium for an individual Sport at the Olympic Games since 1908 and then again in 2016 Jonny and Alistair became the First British Brothers to ever win first and second in an individual event at the Olympic Games. Then at the World Triathlon Series Grand Final in Cozumel in 2016, the sports world witnessed one of the great sporting gestures, when older brother Alistair stopped to help heat-illness stricken Jonny across the finish line and some have said that this helped to restore faith in modern sport.

In part 1 of this conversation, Jonny shares round how Alistair First Great British triathlon kit inspired him into the sport while Jonny’s schoolmates thought that Triathlon involved running a horse. Jonny reflects on his London and Rio Olympic Games successes, outlines the importance of staying relaxed and yes we discuss the Cozumel heat illness episode and the learnings Jonny has taken from it.

One of the things that came out of this conversation with Jake and Zane Robertson is the dangers and frustrations of constantly being compared as identical twin brothers.  So the risk of adding fuel to the fire Jake and Zane Robertson’s PB’s are red-hot. Between them they boast oceanic records as follows: Jake 10km oceanic record 27:28, 10,000m 27:32, half marathon 59:57. Zane oceanic marathon record 2:08:19 and half marathon 59:47 and 10km 27:28.

There’s a lot more to Jake and Zane Robertson than PB’S and that's some of what we delve into on this episode.  

During this episode we cover the early days, training principles, running hills, training failures, training successes periodising training, approaching marathons, training blocks, fuelling for performance and the hard eating questions around pancakes, basketball and Tupac.

On February 29, 2020, Jake Riley stood on the start line of the USA Marathon Olympic trials in Atlanta. This was Jake's third Olympic Games trials and Jake's mantra for the marathon is “no more next time”. Jake stood on that start line, he was 32 years of age and to get to that start line he overcame every setback you could imagine. From prior surgery for a Haglund’s deformity in Achilles tendon through infection, illness, relationship break down, losing sponsors, all experiences that as Runner's World Magazine quoted, “Shouldn't have Jake questioning whether he should continue chasing the Olympic dream.”

He did and he broke through on that day for an historic second place behind Galen Rupp crossing the line in 2 hours, 10 minutes and 2 seconds and securing his ticket to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

During this episode, Jake shares around overcoming surgery, persisting, we play a game of top three’s as Jake shares his Top 3 marathon tips, Top 3 training tips, Top 3 resilience tips before laying down his physical challenge for the week.  This was recorded in the very early days of COVID19 lock-down and uncertainties and I know this is going to inspire and speak to you through these challenging times. Here is my conversation with Jake Riley.

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.

He set the World Record for the most number of half Ironman Triathlons in a calendar year being 22 in total, before he then went on and set a World Record for the most number of completed Ironman Distance Triathlons in the calendar year at 50. James then dreamed up an almost impossible physical challenge by completing 50 Ironman Distance Triathlons, across 50 days, across 50 states of the USA. That’s right the 50/50/50 challenge and this was the challenge that in June 2015 James Lawrence aka the Iron Cowboy took on and completed.

During this episode shares around the highs, the lows and the many learnings from the Journey. We discuss life after the 50/50/50 challenge, the psychological tactics that James deployed to get through such a gruelling endurance event including the concept of a power minute. James outlines his top 3 learnings from completing the challenge, shares around why if you are tired of starting over then stop giving up, we discuss the physiological adaptations that occurred after accruing such fatigue in James’s body and James shares one of the best statements for the long time that is why a high tolerance to monotony is an underrated super power.

Dave McNeill at time of recording this episode had recently wrapped up his Physiotherapy Studies but also just days earlier ran a 28:16 for a 4th Place at the Australian 10,000m Track Titles at the Zatopek Classic. By way of bio, in the 2012 London Olympic Games, Dave finished 28th in the 5,000m, at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Dave finished 16th.  In the final of the 10,000m in July 2019 Dave marked his comeback with a 5000km National Cross Country Title but as you’ll hear during this episode, Dave’s career has certainly also take him to the wilderness years of injury. In fact, injury cost Dave Australian representation at the 2018 Commonwealth Games where he was set to take part in the 5,000m and 10,000m events. It was bone stress injury which sidelined Dave.

As you will hear today that took Dave down the path of exploration where he was to discover that one of the causing factors of his injury had been training through the status of low energy availability or as we’ve been exploring in prior episodes of the show including last week’s Expert Edition with UK based Sports and Endocrinologist Dr. Nicky Keay. Many endurance athletes inadvertently and unintentionally find themselves in a state of RED-S Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport. The flow on effects can be detriments in performance but also the effects can be found through a detriment of health. One particular flow on effect of relative energy deficiency for athletes is low bone mineral density. Dave had to confront that when his bone mineral density came back very low in his lumbar spine.

During this episode we explore topics including how to navigate self doubt, appraising readiness to perform, overcoming the fear of the pain that we put ourselves through leading up to an event, Dave’s concept of old man strength, the idea of not looking at the training in isolation or in a vacuum but rather over the long term considering the bigger picture, the mistake Dave made in mistaking the stable weight has been an energy balance.

During this episode, Dr Nicky Keay shares why hormones matter for athletes, the role that hormones play in mediating training adaptations, why energy availability is so paramount for athletes and performers, the consequences of low energy availability or relative energy deficiency in sports.

Fascinating findings from Dr Nicky Keay’s research in elite cyclist looking at their energy availability status and the surprise findings of their mineral bone density tests. The role of training loads, nutrition and recovery on hormone health and performance. How and why energy deficiency can be both intentional and unintentional, why athletes need to fuel for the work required, why lighter is definitely not better when it comes to sporting performance and how to move towards reversing relative energy deficiency in sports and the associated health consequences.
