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.

James Lawrence is a father of 5 children, husband to wife, Sunny hailing from Utah, USA. 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.

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.

This really is a fascinating deep dive into the Science of Athlete Recovery and topics that Shona outlines includes; just what athlete recovery is and why it is important. 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.

Shona also explores the science around popular recovery modalities including Cryotherapy and Massage Therapy and Shona shares her physical challenge for the week which will really challenge you.

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. This third place finish was the best result of any European in the history of the Iconic Race.

Tom astounded once again in 2018, when he won the 101km CCC race at the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. And from there Tom has gone from success to success. 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. There’s some great tales including training with former featured performer of this show Zane Robertson whilst in Ethiopia as well as his big 6 hour run in Ethiopia plus so much more.

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.
