TOPICS AND LINKS FROM TODAYS SHOW:

Let’s start with your twitter bio: Author of BORN TO RUN and NATURAL BORN HEROES. Currently working on a new project with a donkey named Flower. Any spoilers on what the new book is going to be about? (https://www.triplecrownfeed.com/at-70-years-of-age-flower-is-both-the-worlds-oldest-donkey-longest-lived-equine/)

When you wrote Born To Run, what were you hoping the impact would be? What do you think made it hook people attention compared to a lot of books in the same genre?

So many people took up ultra running and swapped out to barefoot shoes (ahem Molly did both basically immediately)… How did that feel? (Did it seem like people missed the overall message?)

In both books, what was the initial *grab* for you—why those primary stories?

Of everyone you interviewed in both books, who are the two or three that stand out the most & why?

Anyone you wish you’d gotten to add in? Anyone you wish you left out?

Quickly for my nerdy edification: what does the general process look like for your book writing?

Going back to you—were you an athletic kid? What’s been your athletic life trajectory?

Which book got you in better shape?

What practices from either book do you still keep up?

What does training look like now?

What about eating? In BTR, the diets that sort of became noteworthy were largely vegan, and then in NBR, we got into foraging and being fat-adapted. Where are you now?

TOPICS AND LINKS FROM TODAYS SHOW:

In the brief span of four years, Hanna “Moogy” Muegge has made the improbable leap from German National Team & Division 1 collegiate basketball player, to Geographic Information System (GIS) Analyst and Pro-level cyclist.  Her journey to the bike is the result of perseverance, determination, and the discovery of natural talent.  While working for the municipal planning agency and exploring her creativity creating maps and analyzing data, Hanna is now focused on winning a National title and finding her place on the German National Team.
Hanna was raised in south-west Germany in the beautiful city, Tübingen . The oldest of three, and part of an incredibly athletic family, she excelled in a variety of sports while growing up including rhythmic gymnastics, track and field, and basketball.  After moving to the U.S., and completing a double major in Biology and German at Bradley University (IL.), Hanna followed her passion for protecting the great outdoors and received her Master’s from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in International Environmental Studies, with a concentration on Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
After three amazing internship experiences in Germany, El Salvador, and the Island Nation of Palau, Hanna realized that her passion had always been to better the lives around her. Having grown up in areas with superb public transportation, she aims to use these experiences in helping improve the local transportation networks around her.
Hanna is a resident of Monterey, CA.  In her spare time, she diligently trains to become the best cyclist she can be together with her training partner and boyfriend, Chris Cain.  She loves to whip up delicious entrées, garden, take photos, and have fun with her friends and family on the Monterey Peninsula.

SHOW NOTES:

1)How did you get started in dancing?

 

2) What led you to create the Groove Method?

Groove as a form of creative movement, to build community and dance where “you can’t get it wrong”!

3) What’s different/what’s similar compared to traditional classes?

Close to 1 million people of all ages with the concept over the last 10 years – the common theme that underlies every experience is how The Groove makes people FEEL. Often described as transformative, it’s time to wake up, move our bodies and reconnect as humans.

Dance classes for adults outside of zumba are few and far between—why do you think that is / why is dance great for adults?

Best dance club tips for people?

How to feel less awkward on the dance floor, i.e at a wedding

How do you manage balancing growing the Groove Method / teacher training etc. with life/your own practice?

You choose just aim for 63 minutes for each day this 8 day holiday week (December 24 – Dec 31s).
It is a tough goal but also flexible to shift your time around and your sport/intensity.
Let’s make this an active holiday!
Find details and feel free to post your adventures to the Consummate Athlete Facebook Page www.facebook.com/consummateathlete
And/or Use the Hashtag #ConsummateAthleteChristmas

1) Favorite book of 2017 
2) favorite podcast of 2017 (episode) 
3) what is in your backpack? 
Peter: front receipts pocket, + have condiments, coffee-buddy, Nuun tabs, bars, protein powder etc, then chargers/cables pocket, then laptop/books/notebook pocket, then wallet/passport wallet
4) What is x-train? What about if in the city? (cant’ snowshoe) why should I? 
 – Molly Mentions JasYoga
  – Peter mentions Ryan Leech connection – Ryan also leaves us with a code for 1 month free trial on www.ryanleech.com(use Code ‘ryan1’ )
 – Scott Hastie episode on Ultimate Frisbee 
5)  Should I set a New Years resolution?
6) Buying a cheap tri bike on Craigslist? (Vs road bike etc)
  – get a good road bike and a bike fit (check out Dundas Speedshop if near Ontario, Canada)
  – optimize power, weight and bike function.
  – get coaching in limiter sport
7) Hi Molly asking from a slightly left-field perspective, I play skittles ( think British smaller ten pin bowling) and although for fun, but get a bad case of the nerves, meaning I’m anxious before, during and after. To the point where I can’t sign the scorecard as my hands are shaking so much. I had the same problem when I take part in cyclocross and mtb races. So it is something related to competition. 
So do you have any advice, information and thoughts as I would like to control this. 
8) Favorite fitness/adventure gifts you want to give or get?

BEST BOOKS FOR TRIATHALON TRAINING 


SHOW NOTES:

Thank Yous – it takes a community and a lot of inputs and energy to race anything but especially Ironman. 
What was the best thing about Ironman?
   – a chance to go out west and do a few big adventures, visit friends, be a beginner
  – molly nerves/ confidence in swim
**** LINK to Peter article on BIG CRAZY GOALS on www.smartathlete.ca 
What was the best part of training for Ironman?
    – learning to swim and double/triple days. training together.
   – molly – back to a training plan, training together
What would you do differently if you did it again? 
   – open water sooner and uphill/downhill running more
   – a little harder in bike
MOLLY – interval training
Would You do it again? 
   -> bucket lists and
   -> Negatives of training for Ironman – leeway to eat sugar/badly, sacrifice in other areas of life, stress on body, stress on family
    ->
The difference between Training for Molly vs. Peter 
  -> Swim – molly build vol vs. peter build skill/ability/equipment
  -> bike – Peter focused on efficiency/position/bike while molly built time/skill/endurance/engine
  -> run – Molly had time to build volume and body adapts well/enjoys vs. Petre limited time but needed to adapt ankles/calf (more confidence in engine/endurance/running for 12hrs/mindset)
  -> prep/transition/event knowledge => Peter had more unknowns around how event worked, rearch of event day, aid stations, rules etc.
What advice would you give to a cyclist who wants to do Ironman?
  – consider if your skill and speed is sufficient before adding volume
-try and perfect short course
-> Brave athlete ->
What advice to someone with limited endurance back ground (no swim bike or run)
   – learn skills/speed
  – many local and even bigger profile sprint, Olympic, short, Xterra style TRI that will help you refine position in all sports, develop speed and avoid injury due to over training/volume.
Best Swim Advice – what really helped? 
   – get comfortable (Total Immersion and the Latest Joe Friel Triathon Bible) helped Peter
   – to get fast need to work on cadence and the high elbow concept worked well for Peter (more with Rich Pady Podcast) and Book= Swim speed secrets for swimmers and triathletes
 – get into open water asap to work on sighting, and you may like it more.

BIO

Paul Trebilcock, Entrepreneur, Endurance Athlete, Philanthropist
Of all the goals and accolades Paul has achieved as a professional (which includes co-founding/hosting the reality adventure show Boundless), his proudest accomplishment is starting the Kids for Kenya-Toilet Run, which supports the building of toilets at schools in Kenya.

Social/links 
Twitter: @Brooklyn_North Instagram: @turbocock
IMDB for boundless -> 3 seasons x 10 episodes on Esquire network (
 

SHOW NOTES:

1) what’s your sport background? Carpenter?
nickname Turbo?!

Featured in Sports Illustrated, Esquire Network
-> started as a carpenter, then started a bike messenger service in 1990
Outside of sport and competition, I’m a pretty regular guy, going to work every day and coming home to my family. In high school, I ran cross-country and track. It wasn’t until I started a bike courier business that I got into cycling. Riding every day quickly got me hooked on adrenaline. I eventually sought out other sources of adrenaline and started competing in endurance races that combine every type of physical activity you can think of. During the Costa Rica Adventure Race, we biked for 20 hours, trekked for 60 and kayaked for 32. Off-season, I train three times a day, usually starting with a 6 a.m. high-intensity bike ride. When I am not training, I also love to take on new adventures as part of Boundless, a reality adventure TV show that I co-founded and host. While I’m obviously competitive, I’ve learned that the journey is more important. Of all the goals and accolades I’ve accomplished, my proudest is starting the Kids for Kenya Toilet Run which supports the building of toilets at schools in Kenya.

2) how did you start Boundless? The jump from two friends adventuring to a TV show is not a small one.

3) What was your favorite adventure/episode – was it the one you were most looking forward to before the show/in planning?

4) craziest moment? is there a method or mindset you use or have found useful during times of emergency or danger?

5) Training for being a ‘consummate athlete’ or to be ‘boundless’ … How can you be ready for these? (ie. ironman without being on the bike for months before?)

5) 3 seasons of a TV is certainly an accomplishment, where do you go from here?
– your back to MTB, is that the favorite?

6) For the 1/2 Ironman in Thailand – what did you learn about triathlon that you wish you knew before?

7) seems like you’ve made more of a dive into the wellness side of fitness now. Has this always been an interest?
-> you mention ‘small things to keep the body happy so it can go forever in one of the episodes’ … what are some of those little things?

 

8) BOOKS that have influenced you.
