Hosted by Jack Kelly, ”How They Train” is a podcast that asks professional athletes all the questions you want answered about their training
Tim Reed & Tim Van Berkel (Ep 39)
Tim Van Berkel won Ironman Australia and joins former Ironman Australia Champion Tim Reed and myself to discuss how he won, how the race played out & the lead up to the race. Tim Reed also raced and finished 5th on the day. My favourite part of the conversation is the two boys discussing the inner workings between 2 competing pro triathletes out on course, what is said, how much they work together, what they’re both thinking at the same time in races, etc.
Braden Currie (Ep 38)
Professional triathlete Branden Curries comes on the show to talk all about his epic Ironman World Championship race where he finished in 3rd place. Branden lead the race almost all day, eventually being passed with 14km to go in the marathon by Kristian Blummenfelt and then being involved in the most epic sprint finish the Ironman world champs has ever seen with Lionel Sanders for 2nd place. We talk about the race itself, the training in the lead up and lots of interesting topics like the coverage, body weight, what the pros say to each other post race.

A GREAT one to listen to. Sure, it covers training philosophy & methodology but also so much more. This quickly moved to my favorite & I’ve recommended it to other people. I like it so much that this is the first review I’ve ever written for a podcast. Best wishes from Florida!
