267 Tim O'Donnell on his 2nd place in Kona

Tim O’Donnell finished 2nd in Kona at the Ironman World Championships, breaking 8 hours to finish in 7.59.40.One of the most consistent performers on the Big Island, Tim has finished in the top ten six times in the last eight years. This year’s result was all the more sweet for him after a difficult year marred by injury - broken ribs following a horrific high speed bike crash kept him away from racing the early season. He managed to secure his slot with a 3rd place at IM Boulder, despite him having a ‘bad race’ in his own words. However, worse was to come when he stepped on a kerb and broke a bone in his foot only 6 weeks before Kona. While this would have been the end of the dream for most athletes, Tim applied his remarkable mental strength. “Don’t focus on what you can’t do, focus on what you can do in that moment to become a better athlete.”In this interview, we’ll hear:The story of his injury recovery, and how he used aqua jogging and a zero-G treadmill when he couldn’t runTraining sessions and secrets, and what he’s learned from his coaches Julie Dibbens and Matt BottrillTips for staying healthy with a toddler in the house, including his use of essential oilsThe story of his race at Kona that culminated in his 2nd place finish in 7.59.40You can learn more about Tim O’Donnell on his Instagram (@TOinTri) and his youtube channel The Tim and Rinny ShowShow Sponsors:https://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Leaders in triathlete sweat testing and hydration, with multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat.

275 Training Your Mind, with Lucy Gossage and Sports Psychologist Helen Davis

Lucy Gossage is a 14x Ironman champion, and legend of Ironman UK and Ironman Wales. Helen Davis is a Chartered Sports Psychologist who worked with Lucy over the last 4 years of her career.It's easy to imagine that success and confidence come easily to a 14x Ironman Champion like Lucy Gossage. However, in frank and open interview, Lucy talks about how she suffered from 'imposter syndrome' for almost all her racing career, never feeling like a 'proper' professional, and often struggled with the confidence and self belief that she could do well in races. In this dual interview, Lucy talks about how working with Helen revolutionised both her training/racing performance, and her belief in herself in her wider life.Helen and Lucy have teamed up to produce the 6-video IRON-MIND course, which has been developed for Ironman and other endurance athletes to enhance their psychological approach to training and racing. "IRON-MIND is structured on evidence-based research and experience in sport psychology consultancy," says Helen.In this special edition, Lucy and Helen talk through some very practical, actionable mental training exercises that you can do to improve your mental strength and confidence in your ability.You can learn more about the Iron-Mind program at https://www.thinkbelieveperform.co.uk/iron-mindShow Sponsors:https://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Leaders in triathlete sweat testing and hydration, with multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat.

262 Lucy Charles-Barclay - 2nd in Kona!

Lucy Charles-Barclay recently finished 2nd at the Ironman World Championships in Kona for the third consecutive year. We hear about her epic battle for 2nd place on the marathon with Sarah Crowley, and her races in IM South Africa and Challenge Roth. We talk about the training that has got her into top shape, and the challenges that coach and husband Reece Barclay has put in front of her, and how the key to her racing is that, in training, she’s constantly pushed to do more than she thinks is possible.Show Sponsors:https://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Leaders in triathlete sweat testing and hydration, with multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat.

274 Chris McCormack

Chris McCormack is one of the true legends of triathlon. A 2 x Kona winner, 6 x Ironman Australia, 2 x ITU World Champion, and 4 x winner at Challenge Roth, and one of the few men to go sub 8 hours in his day. Since retiring from competition, Chris has introduced SuperLeague Tri to the World - innovative race formats, making fast, furious and exciting sport for both the fans and the athletes. In an honest and open interview, he talks about how he battled constant self doubt and negative self image during his racing years, projecting an aggressive prize-fighter persona to deflect attention from worries about his abilities, insecurities and body weight worries. He talks about how a plans for a super-race against Lance Armstrong went sour, and how that in part led to the idea for SuperLeague Tri. He talks about his favourite athletes racing at the moment, and who he thinks will be in the spotlight in 2020. More than anything, Chris is one of the most passionate fans of triathlon that you will ever meet, and his infectious enthusiasm for bringing the sport to more people really shines through during this interview.Show Sponsors:https://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Leaders in triathlete sweat testing and hydration, with multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat.
