    103 The Swimming Show: Cures for the Adult Onset Swimmer

    If you didn’t grow up with the green hair of over chlorination, you will likely never experience true comfort and weightlessness of being in the water, and yet, you must still prepare for the swim portion of your race. It's a source of challenge, frustration, and sometimes fear for many triathletes.

    Today, we dive in with a whole episode anchored around the adult onset swimmer.

    102 You Can't Bulldoze Your Way to Performance

    102 You Can't Bulldoze Your Way to Performance

    Your athletic journey should be one of longterm development and integration into life. Ultimately, a healthy journey will expand your life view, improve your health and energy, and create a sustained sense of ownership and success.
    Matt continues the athletic journey discussion with Part 2 and two additional real-life case studies that will, no doubt, resonate globally with most athletes. If you haven't listened to Part 1, you can do so here.  
    Athlete one is inspired to do an IRONMAN, but doubts her abilities and the feasible time it may take to properly train and race. She has ambition, but it is caged by intimidation. What will it take to get her to the start line race-ready and confident?
    Athlete number two also has big goals, but is stuck in a cycle of injury, confusion, and inconsistency. He's either "all in or all out" and this mindset has led to frustration and diminished results.
    Matt walks through the vastly different development and training recipes that were implemented for each, along with "the whys" behind the prescription as well as, "the hows." What were the results? You find out. 
    The biggest takeaway message for all? You can't bulldoze your way to performance. It requires much more patience if you seek a performance-driven life across all aspects.

    101 Victory vs. Personal Performance and Improvement

    Did you know that winning can be a highly frustrating experience for a champion? Hard to believe, right? How is that even possible?
    Today, Matt parks this episode right at the intersection of measuring internal standards of performance against outcomes, such as results.
    Should we always seek victory? Or, is it better to chase personal performance and improvement?
    It's a deep dive highlighted with real-life stories of Purple Patch pros and age groupers from all levels. Perhaps you can relate.
