Triathlon Success: Lifestyle vs Bucket List

Our definition of sustainable is approximately 6-8 hours per week of endurance training which is a convenient volume for sprint and Olympic distance races and a nice base for the occasional 70.3 mile distance.  It provides the prolonged benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle without the downside of injury or burnout.

California Soup Podcast

Lesley Paterson and Simon Marshall. Lesley Paterson, 3x Off-Road Triathlon World Champion, and Simon Marshall, Performance Psychologist, BMC Racing Team, join California Triathlon Soup for a 2018 Valentine’s Day special. Lesley shares her story from wee Scottish rugby player to triathlete champion and covers topics as various as their recent book, The Brave Athlete, a gluten free diet and her involvement in the production of All Quiet On The Western Front.

California Triathlon Soup podcast is 2 parts triathlon, 1 part culture and a dash of silly. Season 1 offers a fresh serving of “Soup” every two weeks over a 12 week period.  The guests are top notch as a counterweight to the host’s shear lack of talent and even Erik Schiller’s mad post-production skills might not be enough to make this palatable.  Still, we hope you line up like Oliver Twist and find the podcast hearty and not thin gruel.
