    Lou Bates: When triathlon becomes a stress

    Lou Bates: When triathlon becomes a stress

    This week’s guest is the bubbly and very fun Lou Bates. If you’ve been in triathlon for some time, you might know her better as Louise Collins. She was an awesome age grouper who turned pro about a decade ago, at a similar time to Lucy Gossage. Things unravelled somewhat though and she took time away from triathlon. More recently she’s been national hill climbing champion, she's become a yoga teacher and she raced in the UCI E-Sports World Championships. It’s a fascinating story about burning out and learning to find balance, with so much stuff that we can all relate to
    You'll hear:
    21:30 Lou talks about trying to combine 20 hours of training with 60-70 hour work weeks "there is only one way that is going to go eventually"
    26:50 When Lou decided to step back from triathlon and how she dealt with the emotions and mental struggles that came with the decision.
    33.35 We talk about yoga, why it has helped Lou, why it took her time to get into it and why she decided to become a yoga teacher.
    45:15 We talk about hill climbing on a bicycle - 'crazy' events that draw big crowds. It's a TT on a short hill and you go up as fast as you can. Lou won the National Hill Climbing Championships after a number of attempts.

    Fiona Kolbinger: Winning the Transcontinental Race

    Fiona Kolbinger: Winning the Transcontinental Race

    This is a fabulous conversation with a fabulous woman. Germany's Fiona Kolbinger surprised everyone - not least herself - when she won the Transcontinental Race outright in 2019. The young Doctor covered around 4,000km in ten days, to become the first ever female winner of the epic event. But there's a lot more to Fiona than an incredible ability to endure very long days on a bike.
    You'll hear:
    15:20 About her first cycle touring experience when she had never heard of chamois cream and wore knickers under her bib shorts
    40:10 Just how much she had ridden before the TCR, when she was trying to combine cycling with her final year medical exams
    1:09:45 How she coped with sleeping rough, smelling and a lack of sleep
    57:44 Her thoughts on being the first female winner and why she considered getting a drugs test done
    1:05:00 How she put herself off Snickers for a while after eating 50 of them in the first two days.

    Covid special: Dr Rebecca Robinson and Dr Tamsin Lewis

    Covid special: Dr Rebecca Robinson and Dr Tamsin Lewis

    Dr Rebecca Robinson - Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine and Medical Doctor and former pro triathlete Dr Tamsin Lewis join me this week, to talk about returning to training after covid, dealing with Long Covid, plus advice on training around the Coronavirus vaccination.
    You'll hear:
    37.50 Getting back to sport. "It's often mind over matter with a lot of athletes, but with covid if you push through there is a massive pay back. You have to celebrate the small wins. "
    43:44 Dr Rebecca Robinson's wise words for returning to training. "Don't get carried away, it's keeping progress gentle and slow."
    44:25 Advice for training around getting the Covid-19 vaccination
    48:50 Tamsin speaks about dealing with Long Covid, as an endurance athlete: "It's forced me to confront stillness and sit with anxieties and fears and traumas and ultimately that will make me a better human"
    51:35 Tamsin talk about shifting your goals if you're still dealing with the effects of Coronavirus: "If you have long covid symptoms, allow yourself 3-6 months to recover. You have to be shifting your goals because endurance exercise is a stress and your body has gone through a massive stress with covid."
    Plus we catch up with the amazing Luke Grenfell-Shaw
    Luke talks about having to pause his ride due to Covid and then re-starting it in the summer of 2020. He is full of wise words and it's amazing to hear about his journey on Chris, the tandem.
    10:10 When Covid forced Luke to change his plans: "It's harder to accept something when there is no other option. I had a choice about how I wanted to use that time and I didn't want to waste it.
    11:58 Luke talks about starting his 'https://www.bristol2beijing.org/podcast (Facing Up/Bristol to Beijing' podcast)
    12:17 I've become interested in how some people can face a challenge and then pick themselves up and turn a challenge into an opportunity, and that's the nub of the Facing Up Podcast.
    14:20 Luke really helped me to change my mindset a bit on days when I'm not feeling too happy: "Wallowing in self pity and grief means that you are going to be unhappy for that period."
