On this episode, Associate Professor Patrick Wilson PhD covers the often unsexy but so necessary world of how to navigate our athletes gut. Patrick recently authored a wonderful book that I feel has a place in every athlete's library, The Athletes Gut: the inside science of digestion, nutrition and stomach distress.

In this expert edition, Patrick explores gut physiology, gut anatomy, the remarkable trainability of our gut, gut issues and symptoms, what goes wrong and why, the influence of psychology of the athlete on gut function, hydration, fuelling to ensure energy requirements are met and the consequences of being low on energy availability, hydro gel technology with regards to carbohydrate absorption, FODMAPs, salt/sodium loading and ingestion while training and racing and so much more.

Patrick is an assistant professor of exercise science and directs the human performance laboratory at the Old Dominion University. He earned his PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Minnesota and completed postdoctoral training in sports nutrition at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Patrick has authored more than 40 scientific articles that span the disciplines of exercise science, sports nutrition, and health.

During this episode we feature Catriona Bisset who will share around her highs, lows and many learnings from her career to date. Catriona shares around dealing with athlete pressures, navigating this difficult time that we all find ourselves in, working through an eating disorder as an adolescent athlete, which ultimately combined with the pressures she was dealing with led to a 10 year hiatus from the sport. Upon her return, Catriona became the 2019 Australian 800m champion.

Catriona shares around the concept of being the CEO of our own bodies, the importance of strength and conditioning for both performance optimisation and also injury prevention and rehabilitation, overcoming pre racing anxieties, switching our minds off when we race, the concept of treating our bodies with kindness. And of course, Catriona survived the physical performance round and issues a fantastic physical challenge for the week.

Dr Amit Mistry is a Clinical Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Medicine, he is the Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Sport & Exercise Special Interest Group and he is a Clinical Sport and Exercise Psychiatrist from the UK.

Dr Mistry is the co-author of a recently released book, “Case Studies in Sports Psychiatry”, which is a must for anyone working in the field of sport and exercise.  Dr Mistry shares many learnings pertinent to every athlete, every coach, every health and sport practitioner. 

Topics explored include: 

  • Exercise Addiction – What is it and how is it differentiated from a healthy undertaking of sporting activity. When Dr Mistry shared the characteristics of exercise addiction, I’ll put my hand up and say I ticked most of the boxes.
  • What is the Role of Perfectionism in Sport – when is it helpful and when does it become problematic or potentially maladaptive.
  • Depression and anxiety in athletes, what are the warning signs and what are the ways these conditions can be best treated and stewarded.

In other learnings include the topics of eating disorders and disordered eating, event anxiety and ADHD and its role in sporting performance.

JF Esculier is the Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia. He is the Head of Research and Development and Speaker at the Running Clinic and in industry circles you can’t go past good running injury research without JF Esculier being somewhere amongst it.

JF is listed as one of the 15 World Class Experts at the upcoming The Physical Performance Show co- hosted Master’s Athletes Online One Day Symposium. We thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase this conversation with JF Esculier around a topic that few people know more about on the planet and that is the relationship of running and knee/hip osteoarthritis.

In this conversation, you’ll hear JF share around the misconceptions about running and knee osteoarthritis, the findings of current research into the relationship between running with known symptomatic and asymptomatic knee osteoarthritis. JF issues guidelines on what to do if you do have known symptomatic knee osteoarthritis to promote the best future of your joints and issues a great physical challenge feel the week.

Ebonie shares around the difference between tendinopathy and tendonitis and why terminology matters. The limitations of imaging and practitioners' words in how they can set the trajectory for patients and athletes expectations, why it's necessary to be strong and symmetrical in order to work on strength and conditioning in an isolated manner. Ebonie touches on why form matters when it comes to key exercises such as calf raises and how to navigate practically the ups and downs that are a-given for the tendinopathy rehabilitation process.

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.

Could you imagine running 262.5 miles or 422 KM across 63 hours with no sleep? That is what today's featured performer US Ultra and Marathon acclaimed distance runner Mike Wardian did. But wait there's more, Mike did this around the block whilst under quarantine and Mike termed it the #quarantinebackyardultra.

We didn't discuss the quarantine backyard ultra on today’s featured performer episode but we did discuss many of Mike’s other records. For example, Mike has been the fastest marathoner ever dressed as Spiderman and Elvis. Mike has also held the fastest 50km treadmill world record set in 2015 of 2 hours and 59 minutes. Mike holds the World Abbott Marathon Majors record for the fastest average time across all six world marathon majors; Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York with an average time of 2:31:09 and most recently Mike picked up the Bronze Medal at the USA Track & Field 50km National Road Championships crossing the line in 3:06:10 which was a US 45 to 49 year old masters record.

Mike Wardian is prolific, he has raced more than 50 times a year.  Last year Mike covered 2591km in competition alone. Mike’s sporting resume is something to behold and on today's episode Mike shares around the highs, lows and learnings of his incredible career. We play the game of three’s with Mike outlining his top 3 tips for masters runners, top 3 trail running tips, top 3 recovery tips and top 3 marathon tips.

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.
