152: How to Effectively Modify Your Training and Racing as You Age, with Rebecca Rusch
They say age is just a number. That’s exactly it: Age is nothing more than digits, and certainly shouldn’t be seen as a barrier or a dirty word. We can age successfully, but it requires changes to how we train and perhaps to the types of races we target.   Of course, there are some physiological changes—you might call them declines—that come with age. Yet, there are also things that improve as athletes get older. Sometimes they are truly physiological and psychological adaptations, and at other times they are a matter of perspective, mentality, or choice.  We begin the episode with a deep dive by Trevor into some recent research on the effects of age and performance. Then we jump into a great conversation with the timeless Rebecca Rusch, a seven-time world champion, mountain bike Hall of Famer, and ever-evolving, age-defying cyclist and adventurer. As we speak, the 52-year-old Rusch is taking on her third Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska.  In that conversation, we touch upon everything from training changes to nutrition tips, from off-the-bike work to the work it takes inside the mind to stay motivated, energized, and ready to push.  We also hear from Dr. Andy Pruitt, the world-renowned sports medicine consultant, and Colby Pearce, coach, athlete, bike fitter, and host of the Cycling in Alignment podcast.  All that and much more, today on Fast Talk.

Craig Alexander joins Greg to discuss Triathlon and how the sport has evolved over 40 years
Craig Alexander (Crowie) was Greg's very first guest on The Greg Bennett Show well over a year ago. He’s been a good mate of Greg's for 25 plus years. They’ve logged thousands of miles together in training and they’ve had some fun battles in races around the world. Greg has taken enormous pleasure in watching his incredible success over the years - his 5 world titles and his relentless pursuit and perseverance to become the champion he is. They’ve done 5-hour rides and there’s rarely a moment of silence between them. They’ve shared coffee’s and beers, and plenty of laughs. Greg's not sure he can think of a better man to have a long conversation about anything and everything. This is simply two mates sharing some stories, their thoughts on the world of Triathlon and how it’s changed over 30+ years, and some off-topic random discussion as well. In this episode, Craig and Greg discuss the early years at Balmoral Triathlon club in Sydney and how they use to sleep in their cars before races and wait for the barrel draws to win meat packs, and how they always worked jobs to simply try to stay afloat to get o the next race. Greg and Craig discuss who is the greatest Triathlete of all time. How races have changed and how equipment changes have impacted the sport.   Discount Codes and Deals   Athletic Greens - a FREE year supply of Vitamin D AND 5 FREE travel packs with your first purchase by visiting athleticgreens.com/greg Hyperice - get an additional 10% off with code GREG10 at hyperice.com FormSwim Goggles - formswim.com/greg for $15 off - The coupon will be automatically added to the cart.
