    The Triathlete Hour: ep. 10 - Heather Jackson stays positive

    In this week's episode we talk to Kona podium finisher and multi-time Ironman champ Heather Jackson. Known for her constant smile, Heather tells us how she stays so positive and what the deal was with the bananas when she won Ironman Lake Placid.

    A former hockey player, Heather was a high school teacher after college and an age-group athlete when she decided to move to San Diego and go pro. Now she's one of the fastest women on the circuit. She tells us how she changed her perspective and what she thinks are the most common mistakes age-groupers make.

    Plus, coach Marilyn Chychota talks to us about what athletes are struggling with right now, how to stay motivated, and what her biggest tips are. She talks extensively about figuring out what your motivations are. Here is the worksheet she mentions that you can go through yourself to evaluate your own motivation: https://www.lrcs.uqam.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/ems28_en.pdf

    Triathlete's Fitter and Faster: Ep. 1 - Dr. Stacy Sims on nutrition as the 4th triathlon discipline

    In this first episode of Triathlete’s new training podcast, Fitter and Faster, Dr. Stacy Sims joins host Emma-Kate Lidbury to talk about nutrition and fueling for training, recovery, and performance.

    Having worked with scores of amateur and professional endurance athletes, Sims has seen it all—and talks candidly about common fueling mistakes and how to fix them, as well as different diet trends and “fads” and how differently they can affect men and women.

    Known for her academic research into the physiological differences between men and women, Sims leaves no stone unturned when talking about the importance of women tracking their training alongside their menstrual cycle and what a huge impact this can have on performance.

    Dr. Sims has helped change the conversation about female athletes and their periods—and in this podcast she explains why this is so significant.

    The Triathlete Hour: ep. 9 - Sarah Piampiano gets real about uncertainty & having a family

    In ep. 9 of the Triathlete Hour, Sarah Piampiano opens up about the uncertainty she's facing as a "mature" athlete. This season was supposed to be her last season before she and her husband started a family. But now with all the uncertainty around racing: Does she wait? She's 40: Does she try and come back to racing after having a kid? How do you tackle these questions?

    Sarah also talks to us about how she almost quit the sport in 2018. But after months off to re-find her fire, she came back in 2019 and set the third fastest American women's Ironman time in history. After quitting smoking and a 100-hour/week job in finance, she dedicated herself to being the best triathlete she could be. Now what?

    And first, we chat about the big news: Ironman postpones Kona 2020 to Feb. 2021. What does this mean for athletes? How will next year play out?

    Linsey using an injury right now to practice some self-reflection, figure out her why, and focus on being Linsey the Person—not just Linsey the Triathlete.

Love the vibe! Friendly, casual chat

The athlete interviews are fun - it feels more like a casual, coffee shop chat than an official interview. The shorter bits at the start cover a wide range of topics and are full of things I hadn’t necessarily thought about.

Love the interviews, but there are some flaws

I really love listening to the athlete interviews and have learned a lot from them in just a few episodes.

However, I find that Kelly (the host) is quite condescending about what people should already know. There’s an attitude of “if you’re here you’re already a pro” which I don’t think is true. I’m a new triathlete and I’m here to learn. Having someone say that everyone listening already know who someone is or something about triathlon that I don’t know is disheartening. Take the time to slow down and explain some things!

Stop political talks

I’d love to listen to a whole podcast but I’ve tried listening to a couple of the more recent ones and they start talking politics which has nothing to do with triathlon and I then turn it off. I’m sure the athlete interviews are good, but I haven’t got there yet.
