    420 Age Group Story: Ian Smith - Faster Over Fifty

    420 Age Group Story: Ian Smith - Faster Over Fifty

    This week we interview Ian Smith, who recently completed Ironman New Zealand - knocking over an hour off his previous Ironman best, despite now being, in his words, ‘the other side of 50.’

    Ian has dedicated himself to his training over the last two years with Team Oxygenaddict, but has also paid a lot of attention to his family-work-training-life balance. Having moved to Australia for a more outdoor life, he’s embraced early morning training to beat the heat of the day, and has learned to love open water swimming, despite his encounters with sharks!

    419 How to train for an Ironman in six months

    419 How to train for an Ironman in six months

    Coaches Rob Wilby and Chris Palfreyman talk you through everything you need to know about the six months of training leading up to your Ironman.

    They cover:

    The structure of your basic week of training - frequency, intensity and duration of swims, bikes and runs.

    The benefits of focusing on swim technique over endurance and distance, especially in the early weeks of your training

    Safely increasing the duration of your long endurance swim, bikes and runs.

    Strategies to help you avoid overtraining, illness, injury and burnout

    How to change the way you approach your long run, so that you’re never sore the day after a long run again!

    How and when to incorporate brick runs into your training - it’s not what you might think!

    Why you SHOULDN’T complete your long run the day after your long ride - and the one exception to that rule

    How to safely approach strength and conditioning in a way that compliments your swim, bike and run training

    Daily nutrition approaches, ‘within session’ sports nutrition strategies, electrolyte and hydration guidelines.

    We also have the first instalment of “Age Group Diary”, following athlete Julie Howe on her six month journey to Ironman UK.

    418 Sam Laidlow - Kona Runner-up & Bike Course Record Breaker on Debut!

    418 Sam Laidlow - Kona Runner-up & Bike Course Record Breaker on Debut!

    Sam Laidlow lead for most of the race at his Kona debut, eventually finishing 2nd to Gustav Iden. He surprised many by obliterating the Kona bike course record and splitting the Norwegian favourites of Iden & Blummenfelt on the day. On his return to the Oxygenaddict Podcast, we talk about:

    How he burst onto the Iron-distance scene at Lakesman in 2019...

    What he learned from upsetting Sam Long at the Collins Cup...

    The race strategy & tactics at the front of the race in Kona...

    His power numbers during the bike leg and why he thought he'd gone too hard too soon...

    Why he plans to exit the water with a several minute lead at the next World Champs...

    The innovations and equipment decisions that helped him to his Kona result...

    The importance of building a personal brand as a professional athlete and why it's not all about race results...

    Why he'd prefer people to hate him than be indifferent about him...

    Smashing the Kona bike course record without a bike sponsor(!)...

    Whether he believes he can beat Gustav in future World Champs...
