060: MORE on Mindsets for Optimal Performance with Stanford Researcher, Omid Fotuhi [Podcast]

Hey everyone! Coach Al here. Today I am once again honored and pleased to welcome back onto the podcast, Dr. Omid Fotuhi, runner, triathlete, and project manager for the Stanford University Interventions Lab. It has been almost a year since we last had Omid on the podcast; I've personally been anxious to get him back on so we all could continue to learn from him and his research team. Without a doubt, that first podcast we did together (Episode 58,which you can listen to by goingHERE) was one of our most popular ever. In Part 1 of our chat (Part 2 coming soon),we discussed what he's learned about how we all can better use the power of our mind to explode our potential! Such as... * The important interplay between our own belief systems and effective goal setting. * The three types of goals / goal setting, and how they work individually and collectively to empower us to greater achievement and self actualization. * Fixed and growth mindsets: Which is more likely to lead to reaching o...

059: “Slipped Away,” with Special Guests Jean Mellano and Ron Hurtado [Podcast]

I'm honored to have two special guests on the podcast today: Jean Mellano, author of the memoirSlipped Away, and veteran, founding member, and executive director of the Airborne TriTeam, Ron Hurtado. Some background: I first met Steve Tarpinian in 1996 after deciding to attend his "Swim Power" clinic at the Nassau County Aquatic Center in Long Island, NY. I was hoping to learn how to overcome my fear of the water and how to swim.If you're thinking that's not exactly an easy task for a 36-year-old having experienced a near drowning as a 10-year-old kid, you'd be right. I arrived as a anxious newbie, wondering what the day would bring. When I left at the end of the day, I had made a friend for life and also come to know one of the best teachers, coaches and men I'll ever know. Sadly, on March 15, 2015, that great teacher, coach, mentor...lost his war on depression, and took his own life. Fast forward a short time later, Steve's soulmate and partner of 35 years, Jean Mellano, after rea...

058: Mindsets for Optimal Performance with Stanford Researcher, Omid Fotuhi [Podcast]

Today I am really psyched to welcome onto the podcast, Dr. Omid Fotuhi, triathlete and project manager for the Stanford University Interventions Lab. I truly believe the topics we discuss on the podcast today will have a profound impact on anyone listening in. The group of researchers led by Dr. Fotuhi are doing absolutely state-of-the-art research on mindset and performance! Dr. Fotuhi and his colleagues at the Interventions Lab describe their research as "focused on identifying psychological barriers that impede performance and well-being, and leveraging those insightsto create theory-driven interventions that target those barriers." Here's a link to a short video that provides a brief look at the work they do. In this podcast, Dr. Fotuhi shares his experience and research on topics such as: * What are some of the most common patterns of beliefs and thoughts that we all have, and how do those correlate with our performance? * Do seemingly inconsequential events have an impact on h...

057: All Things Trail Running with Ethan Veneklasen and Deborah Livingston [Podcast]

Today I am excited to welcome Ethan Veneklasen and Debbie Livingstonto the podcast.Without a doubt, this was one of my favorite podcasts to date! I had the opportunity to connect with Ethan after this year's Miwok 100k. All three of us were there to race.Miwok is oneof those old classic races in the ultra-running world. Held on May 2nd in the Marin Headlands outside of San Francisco, Debbie and Ethan ran a little bit of the course together that day. Ethan is one of those great guys who seems to know everyone in the ultra-running world! Besides being a co-host of the ever popular ultra runner podcast (over 150k downloads per month!), he's also a Hoka One One and VFuel ambassador. As for "Deb," anyone who listens to this podcast knows who she is. Mom and wife, elite ultra-runner, coach, yoga teacher and steward of all things mother-nature and the environment, she was last on the podcast with me when we visited with James Varner and the Trail Running Film Festivalback in February. In J...

056: Visiting with Podiatrist Rebecca Rushton [Podcast]

Today I am pleased to welcome podiatristRebecca Rushtonof Esperance Podiatry in Esperance, Australia, to the podcast.Without a doubt, Rebecca is one of the world's foremost experts on blisters! Now if you've never struggled with a blister, then the information she has to share might not seem all that important. I believe however, that at some point in the future, each and every runner or endurance athlete will experience a blister, and probablyat the worst possible time. What we can all learn from Rebecca could make the difference between a painfulstruggle to the finish line, or busting a new PR with a smile. Some of the things we discuss in this podcast: * What are the most pervasive myths surrounding blisters? There are plenty! * What's the difference between rubbing and shearing and why does it matter? * Are certain folks more prone to blisters? * What about shoe fit and lacing options? * Do lubricants like vaseline or powders work to reduce blister risk, or are you actually maki...

055: Visiting with Troy Anderson of Anderson Training Systems [Podcast]

Today I am pleased to welcome Troy M. Andersonof Anderson Training Systems as a guest on our podcast. Troy is anRKCKettlebell Instructor, a DVRTMaster Instructor, and most importantly perhaps, is a self described "farm kid driven to spread the good word of the ACCESSIBILITY of kettlebells, sandbags, bodyweight training, and UN-Apologetic Living." Because I'm a believer in the value of the kettlebell as an awesome training tool to get stronger AND improve movement quality, and because I've had the opportunity to see some of the great work Troy is doing out in his training space in Tempe, Arizona and also online, I thought it would be beneficial to bring him onto the podcast and have him share some of his insights with all of you. Among the topics we discuss: * Strength Training:A plethora of strength related info, such as his philosophy, his favorite training tools and toys, and some of the valuable and hard earned lessons he's learned along the way. * Getting leaner: What works and ...

052: After Your “A” Race: Euphoria, Letdown, or Somewhere In Between? With Functional Wellbeing Coach, Olivia Syptak [Podcast]

If you are like so many endurance athletes everywhere who enjoy toeing the line at a race (be it sprint or iron distance triathlon, running, cycling, or Spartan), it's quite likely that you have either just completed your "A" priority race for the year or are about to in the next few weeks. In today's podcast with Functional Wellbeing Coach Olivia Syptak as our guest, we talk about the vast range of emotion we often face after that "big" A race or event. We also discuss specific strategies you can employ RIGHT NOW that will help you maintain forward momentum and build on your experience moving forward. That post-race emotion can range from the immediate euphoria of the finish to the emptiness that can set in in the days that follow, to the depression that can arise in the face of a "DNF" or a result that didn't align with our target. Regardless of whether that race was a huge success or a disapointment, the post-race period of time offersthe opportunity to spend time with the concep...

051: Talent, Training and Exploding Your Potential [Podcast]

Where does talent,in all its many forms, come from? Are we born with our own unique talents or can we develop them over time? And if we can “grow” and develop talent, how does that happen? Thinking about it a bit differently, does intelligence measured through aptitude tests always correlate with success? Certainly, we all know world-class athletic or musical talent when we see it in another person, don’t we? If you’re the inquisitive type like we are, you’ve thought about these questions more than once. It is the old “nature vs. nurture” discussion made even more interesting as we learn more from science about how our brains function, and how skills are developed. Hot best-selling books like Dan Coyle’s “The Talent Code,” and Malcom Gladwell’s “Outliers” offer even more interesting clues. It isn’t uncommon for endurance athletes to wonder about talent. When we show up at the local group workout or race, it is hard to avoid comparing ourselves to others and wondering j...
