139 Poignant, Powerful, and Positive Life Lessons from a 50 Mile Ultra
54 min

As we finish 2020 and gear up emotionally for bigger and better times in 2021, we’ve got a chance to RESET, to lay the groundwork of mindset, habits, and action that will equip us to thrive next year - no matter what is thrown our way.

Matt put this mantra to action at a recent 50 Mile Ultra race and shares the poignant, painful, and powerful life lessons he learned running for over 12 hours in the mountains of central Oregon.

This very simple event acted as a lightening rod and helped with so many other positive habits around flexibility, patience, accountability, and community.

He leaned into the power of sport and it provided much-needed purpose to enable excellence across all aspects of life.

This is the heart of the Performance Reset 2020 - experts and companies sharing their thoughts on the role of sport because, make no mistake, sport is powerful. You might be feeling rudderless. You might be tired of this carnival and the uncertainty. But, we have no doubt you have a performance-driven mindset. You may or may not identify as an athlete, but you can learn and thrive by applying elements of the athletic mindset.

It won’t happen by accident and we want to help.

#41: Running injury prevention and recovery, with Nate Helming from The Run Experience
Watch this conversation on YouTube here. Nate Helming (Strava) is a founder of The Run Experience, one of the largest YouTube running channels and online running coaching programs. In this show, we discuss running injuries, mobility, flexibility and strength training. We dive into topics like stretching, foam rolling and running form. Nate has a tremendous amount of knowledge in these areas and his passion for passing this on to others is evident in his words and works! We also talk about: * being your own advocate in training. * mechanical deficiencies in the body. * recovery tools and tips. * and many other interesting points of reference. Links and tools mentioned: * Ironman - Kona, Hawaii * The Run Experience - YouTube * The Run Experience - Instagram * The Run Experience - website and blog * The Run Experience app - Apple Store * The Run Experience app - Google Play * The Boys in the Boat, by Daniel James Brown (book) * Casey Neistat (YouTube) * Sidekick - recovery tools * CBD oils and lotions * massage / percussion guns * nate@therunexperience.com (email) Show notes: * Growth of The Run Experience and Nate’s running background, including the Boston Marathon as his first as a young student. [5:28] * The perils of a basic running plan printed from the internet. Nate was playing a “high wire act” with his running where after 6-8 weeks, things can start to catch up with you, from a basis of poor habits and poor strength. [16:52] * Nate talks about his development in Triathlon and Ironman, where his running background helped him. However, he now had a coach and niggling injury! This led Nate into the Strength & Conditioning world; where his perspective on what an endurance athlete is, was revised. [19:54] * On training, mindset, habits and the hand-me-down knowledge that goes from generation to generation. Nate got into coaching through trying to help friends with injuries. He talks about the tools which can help with mechanical deficiencies, working by trial and error, challenging the range of movement. [26:30] * Going from one:one, to one:many, seeing individual responses and patterns of behavior. Nate was tapped out, working 6-8 hours per day and building programs but loved the work. He then started to think about people who couldn’t afford the classes or had practical issues getting to them. With his co-founder, Craig, they began to make some videos and start the YouTube channel and The Run Experience. [36:04] * On running form issues and ways to improve. Two types of injuries i) sudden and unexpected ii) overuse injury. Being your own advocate. [42:52] * The role of coaching, to go beyond just running and to have some focus on habits, strength and mobility. Advising coaches to not be afraid to set a higher bar for athletes. In building a team, find people with areas of expertise, rather than trying to be expert on everything yourself. We can’t train like it’s 1950 or 1910, the world has changed. [47:12] * Boys in the Boat: a David and Goliath story. Coaching lessons, from a book about the 1936 Olympic US rowing team. [49:25] * On feet: the long end of the kinetic whip. Over-striding, heel-striking. Running form and atheletic foundation; breathing, arm swing, head position. [51:53] * On stretching: not about lengthening muscle, but to be a strong, healthy human I need to be able hit certain positions. [54:52] * For your recovery tool-box. Use the best tools you have available to you. [58:39] * Tips for foam roller use. Rolling directions: not just “north-south”, but also “east-west”. It’s a game of Seek & Destroy. [01:01:40] * More details about The Run Experience app and where you can find Nate online (also see Links above) [01:05:22] * Tips for those looking to become stronger, healthier and happier athletes. [01:06:31] You can find me, Floris Gierman, here: * Strava * YouTube * Instagram * My Training Course - The Marathon PR Program * My Training Course - 5K to Half Marathon Program * Weekly newsletter with Running Tips and Racing Strategies * Podcast * Facebook (Extramilest Group)

PTO's Impact on Pro-Triathletes * Simon Ward with Jackson Laundry and Taylor Reid
Since COVID19 hit the world, triathletes have suffered just like everyone else. Limited opportunities to train and virtually no racing apart from virtual. The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has been a big help to triathlon, distributing grants to help athletes survive and in recent months, bumping up the prize purse at selected races (£15k for Helvellyn and Outlaw X in the UK) for the pro athletes racing. On December 6 the PTO Challenge Daytona will air and this event will have the biggest prize purse ever offered for a professional triathlon race with £1,150,000. There will be an equal number of pro male and female starters and the prize pots are identical. In another first, the prize money will be distributed among all athletes with every starter guaranteed to take home a minimum of $2500. In this week’s episode, I talk to 2 talented Canadian athletes who will be racing in Daytona. Taylor Reid has five professional 70.3 victories (including three Ironman 70.3 victories) and has been on the podium fifteen times. After chasing the Olympic dream for 7 years, he had some success winning the U23 Canadian Champion in 2013. He then made the switch to long-course triathlon in 2014, focusing on the Ironman 70.3 events all around the world. The longer event, which required more endurance, suited his strengths. Alongside his triathlon career, Taylor is also a spokesperson for dyslexia, sharing his story with the world to help raise awareness about dyslexia. Jackson Laundry is a two-time Ironman 70.3 champ (Raleigh 2018, Mont Tremblant 2019) and has eleven 70.3 podiums. He was also the winner and co-organizer of the 2020 Canadian pro tri championship, a race that he and Taylor decided to host in order to give the community something to look forward to and give fellow athletes a high level race. It was a huge success, bringing many of the top Canadian athletes together, with their own private TV crew and CBC coverage. Taylor is also the co-host of "The Real Triathlon Podcast” and has had a successful virtual race season in 2020, taking 4th place at the 2020 Zwift pro tri series, 2nd place at Ironman VR14, and winning 1 stage of the Super League e-series. Listen in to the interesting conversation with these two enthusiastic, personable and professional triathletes trying to make their way in the world and giving back a little as they continue their journey. Hopefully you’ll appreciate this as well as we chat about: * Life as a pro triathlete - living the dream or scraping a living * The life of a professional triathlete during lockdown in Canada * How COVID 19 has disrupted their training and racing plans * PTO and the impact it’s having on professional triathlon * An athlete turned race organizer, and getting a better appreciation of the work done by race promoters and volunteers * Challenge Daytona To find out more about Jackson: Website - https://www.jacksonlaundrytri.com/ Instagram - @jacksonlaundrytri To find out more about Taylor: Website: - http://www.taylor-reid.com/ YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIj6iRJupVYsVB06igYz9zQ?view_as=subscriber Twitter/instagram: @TC_Reid We also talked about: "The Real Triathlon Podcast": hosted by Jackson and two fellow pro triathletes You can find that here - https://therealtriathlonpodcast.podbean.com/ Podcast Instagram handle is @therealtripodcast Here is the link to the race highlights video for the Canadian Pro Triathlon Championship. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=k_Cek3u8Jfo&t=4s Taylor talked about his work increasing awareness of dyslexia.

Terenzo Bozzone - Ironman 70.3 World Champion, Ironman Champion
Terenzo Bozzone is one of the world’s greatest endurance athletes… with over 47 wins including 33 Ironman 70.3 and numerous ironman victories. He has 5 World Championship titles in Triathlon, duathlon, and his 2008 Ironman 70.3 World Title.It hasn’t all been smooth sailing, he’s had enormous setbacks with Achilles injuries and eventually surgeries and a frightening accident in 2018 when he was taken out by a truck on his bike. But he continues to rebound and rebuild and come back stronger and better.Never a smile off his face, you’d be hard-pressed to meet a better man. We’ve been mates for almost 20 years and raced each other for over a decade.In this episode, Terenzo describes the difficult mental, physical, and emotional journey back from an almost career and life-ending accident. He struggled with Concussion symptoms for months after the accident... headaches that would last a week at a time. He won Ironman Western Australia 5 months after the accident using the desire to show his kids the importance of never giving up even when the chips are down to empower him to victory.He discusses his hopes of going to the Olympics but missing out due to politics in sport. He regrouped and went on to win the 2008 Ironman 70.3 World Championships the same year as the Games.We discuss sleep and recovery, mountain biking, supplements, and mental strategies and so much more.

FT139: A New Coaching Model: Creating Better Athletes Through Our Virtual Performance Center
We believe modern coaching doesn’t optimally fulfill the needs of the modern athlete. That’s why we’re introducing our community, education, and coaching membership, Fast Talk Laboratories.   So often athletes are given templated training plans. But what if he or she gets sick? Or work gets stressful? That athlete will likely do more harm than good simply pushing through and sticking to the plan. In response to that methodology, we’ve created a virtual performance center, a place for the insightful athlete to be guided to their best self.   We have collected the many tools available to modern athletes in one place, offering curated and validated knowledge—through articles, videos, workshops, webinars, forums, and the list goes on—from some of the finest minds in sport science: Dr. Stephen Seiler, Dr. Stephen Cheung, Julie Young, Colby Pearce, Grant Holicky, Jess Elliott, to name a few. We’ll be adding new contributors all the time, and you can be sure they’ll also bring clarity and sophistication to their contributions.  Let’s detail our Listener, Library, Live, and Laboratory member levels.  Listener: We are now producing transcripts of every new Fast Talk podcast episode—plus our catalog of over 135 existing episodes and 27 Cycling in Alignment episodes. What does that mean for Listeners? Searchable podcast episodes, references, and resources. And, of course, you can read along or scan ahead, if you happen to be a faster reader than listener.   Listeners will also begin to receive our weekly newsletter, which will keep them up to date on new episodes, special guests, and opportunities to send in questions for new Q&A episodes. We also have plans to periodically release a few of our most popular training science videos and articles—but only for members.   Our next membership level unlocks a whole library of content, which is why we’re calling it our Library Membership. For our Library Members, we have created training science articles, a whole library of video content, and a moderated forum. This is content like the fundamentals of sports nutrition from Head Coach Ryan Kohler and a workshop on why cold temperatures affect performance from Dr. Stephen Cheung. The Forum is a place to discuss recent episodes, ask questions, and get answers from Trevor, Ryan, and our very smart members.   Live membership is really the heart and soul of what we’re offering. This level includes all the features we’ve already introduced, plus a whole suite of Live Events including social group rides, structured live workouts, live Q&A sessions, and live webinars. Trevor’s and Ryan’s experience in training centers and the group-style approach will shine. This level also includes group coaching and a monthly question answered.  Our Laboratory Membership will open in January. This is our premier coaching level, and of course it includes all the benefits of the lower levels. We believe it’s a vast improvement over existing coaching programs. Our athletes and listeners are not typical. They are intelligent, motivated, and they don’t need email nannying, which is what we often see in endurance coaching. They also don’t really need templated training plans,  which we believe are counterproductive for higher-level athletes.   Instead, our Laboratory Membership is a new concept that we call Endurance Mentorship. What does that mean? Well, it’s based on the idea that you already know the basics—but wouldn’t it be great to have an elite coach to answer your questions? Plus, with periodic testing and guidance, you’ll experience the best of what Fast Talk Laboratories has to offer as a virtual performance center. Learn more about your ad choices.
