Rank #2: Cam Wurf - Challenge Roth Training Series - Roth Tips, Recap, Olympics, Frodeno & more!

Podcast cover
Read more
Today we have Australian Pro Triathlete and fan-favorite Cameron Wurf on for Episode number 8 of the Road to Roth Training Series!
So for the first time listeners, a bit of a backstory here with the Road to Roth Series – at the beginning of August I announced that I’ll be doing my first full distance triathlon at Challenge Roth in 2020, and since then, I found that a lot of listeners were actually on a similar path; whether it was with Roth or another race; but they too were on their crazy journey to their first full distance triathlon and looking forward to hearing content specific to the full distance!
Of course, never having actually done the distance before, I figured everyone could benefit the most in a series where I interview top professional triathletes and coaches that will be able to provide a ton of training tips specific to the full distance as well as give us the motivation and insight we need to help us maximize our performances come race day!
Now this man needs no introduction, he is a former professional rower, former pro cyclist and now a top contending pro triathlete – with a third place in Roth and a 5th in KONA alongside some excellent performances including a win and run course record at IRONMAN Italy in 2019. Cam also recently competed in his first ITU Triathlon so we ask him about his thoughts on that style of racing in today’s podcast!
Cam is also known as a hilarious public triathlon figure on social media and never shy’s away from razzing a fellow pro triathlete on Instagram when an opportunity arises! He is a great role model in triathlon and as he improves his run times he is becoming more of a threat on the racecourse!
Cam joins us in today's episode to recap a bit of his season including his improvements in his running, his crazy training volume and highlights his experiences and podium finish at the iconic Challenge Roth. Cam leaves us with some excellent tips relevant to the Challenge Roth course and also leaves us with some inspiration and a few great laughs. We also talk about what’s in store for his winter season training as well as schedule looking forward to 2020!
I am really excited about this one guys and I could keep going on all day, but let’s hear it all from Cameron Wurf himself!

Today we welcome Coach Joel Filliol on the podcast, who most of you may already know – but if you don’t, he’s well recognized as one of the most successful triathlon coaches in the world.

Joel has worked with IRONMAN athletes like Helle Frederikson, Olympic athletes like Mario Mola, Simon Whitfield, and Alistair Brownlee.

Rank #4: Ellie Salthouse - 3rd in IM 70.3 Oceanside, Nutrition Strategies, Elevation Training, & more!

Podcast cover
Read more

In this Podcast we meet with Australian Professional Triathlete, Ellie Salthouse. 

I am excited to share this episode with you guys because as you’ll hear in today’s episode, Ellie is an absolute delight to talk to and has such an incredible and inspiring story in Triathlon and I think it would resonate with many of you listening. 

Ellie started racing in the ITU circuit and eventually left the sport altogether to pursue other dreams. When she returned to the sport, she eventually made the decision to pursue jumping up to the IM 70.3 distance – and in doing so, her first year she had earned herself 4 half distance titles, multiple podium finishes and a top 10 World Championship finish. This year in 2019 she recently claimed a 2nd place in 70.3 Geelong and a 3rd place in 70.3 Oceanside and it looks like this is just the beginning of a successful 70.3 year! 

We will get to hear about her experiences in ITU and the shift towards the 70.3, as well as hear lots of her advice when it comes to training to compete and train for the 70.3 distance format.

We also go over her future plans in the sport, nutrition strategies, how to overcome race nerves and more! 

I personally am a big big fan of her in triathlon racing so the honor is all mine in this podcast, and I’m sure after you finish this episode you will be too!

We have a really exciting episode here on the Challenge Roth Road to Roth Podcast Series which includes a great interview with Jan Frodeno, Anne Haug, and Sarah True’s Coach; Dan Lorang.
So for the first time listeners, a bit of a backstory here with the Road to Roth Series – at the beginning of August I announced that I’ll be doing my first full distance triathlon at Challenge Roth in 2020, and since then, I found that a lot of listeners were actually on a similar path; whether it was with Roth or another race; but they too were on their crazy journey to their first full distance triathlon and looking forward to hearing content specific to the full distance!

Motivation and inspiration seems endless in this interview with Dan as he describes how he met and coached Anne Haug when she just started getting into Triathlon and how Jan came to him while he was an ITU athlete asking if he could coach him to transition into IRONMAN with the ambitious goal to win the IRONMAN World Championships.

Rank #12: Altitude Training 101 - with Mile High Training & Altitude Athletics!

Podcast cover
Read more
Today we have the Director of Mile High Training on the podcast to talk to us about the benefits and physiology of altitude training!
So I am excited to say that I have been partnering with Altitude Athletics which is a gym that is opening up this fall in Toronto that focuses on Altitude training for endurance athletes which is an amazing concept because if there’s one common paradigm in all the pro athlete interviews I’ve had is that they all spend time in Boulder Colorado training at 5400ft elevation. 
Altitude Athletics have brought the elevation to Toronto which is incredible because they will have treadmills, plyometric equipment, bike trainers and so much more that you can use and train in elevations ranging from 6000ft to 12,000 ft. If you guys are in the Toronto area then I highly recommend joining me in training there and you can find out more on that by checking them out on Instagram @altitudeathletic 
So Altitude Athletic has hooked me up with a Generator and Mask that allows me to train at elevation in my own home! So in preparation for this I wanted to have altitude training expert Matt Formato to walk us all through what altitude training is all about and answer and questions and misconceptions around the style of training. 
We will learn in this episode what the purpose of altitude training is, how it affects our body, how we will see improvements, and most importantly how do you structure a training plan around altitude training (and are there any risk factors involved)! 
I’m super excited for this episode and I can’t wait to train like the pros with the help of Altitude Athletics as well as Matt Formato from Mile High Training. I will be documenting my training with Altitude on my YouTube Channel so be sure to subscribe to it by searching Pacing and Racing! 
Now, let’s hear it from the expert himself!

Alright everyone thanks so much for tuning in today, my names Steven Langenhuizen and I am the host of the Pacing and Racing Podcast and Joining us today is USA Pro Triathlete Taylor Spivey who recently ranked 4th in the World Triathlon Series and a 3rd in the Super League Triathlon Series.
Taylor has been on fire these last few years with dominating performances across the ITU and Super League Triathlon series and she’s here today to talk with us about those race series as well as the highly anticipated upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
