Beth Potter is a British long-distance runner and triathlete; she competed for Great Britain in athletics at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but sadly that didn't go according to plan.

In this conversation, I wanted to learn more about how she dealt with the disappointment of being ill at the Olympics, racing in the virtual world, lockdown training and the secrets to her success in transitioning from track to triathlon.

After earning short-course kudos as a 3x Olympian, 4x ITU World Champion and countless ITU World Cup victories, Tim Don turned his attention to the half Ironman distance where he picked up a collection of titles, as well as setting the current Ironman World Record of 7:40:23 in Brazil. Two days before the 2017 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Tim Don was hit by a car whilst riding along the Queen K Highway and suffered a hangman's fracture to his neck. He spent 3 months recovering in a Halo Brace, which was documented brilliantly in 'The Man with the Halo'. So, as one of Britain's most successful triathletes, and someone that has played a huge part of the sports rise to popularity, I wanted to learn more about his recovery from injury, his approach to goal setting and what's next for The Don!

In the first episode of the podcast with my new co-host, pro Ironman athlete, Laura Siddall, we speak to Dr Emma Ross, Head of Physiology at the English Institute of Sport, helping Team GB finish second in the medal table at the Rio Olympics.Dr Emma Ross led a ground-breaking campaign to improve support of female athletes within the high performance system. Through the SmartHER programme she worked to empower coaches, athletes and sports practitioners to better understand the exercising female, and how to capitalise and cope with her physiology and psychology in the context of sport.  She is on a mission to tackle the taboos that exist within sport and within wider society when it comes to women’s health; topics such as periods and the menstrual cycle, breast health, pelvic floor health and mental health. Thankfully, I had previous guest of the podcast and performance coach, Laura Penhaul, on hand to make sure I was asking the right questions in a subject that was definitely out of my comfort zone. www.thriverevolution.co.ukEmma on Twitter Emma on Instagram Emma's Courses:BitesizeAthletePractitionerDiscount Code: TRIBEATHLON10 Laura Penhaul Website Laura Penhaul on Instagram Laura Penhaul on Twitter Book recommendations:Train Like a Woman by Dr Emma Ross, Baz Moffat and Dr Bella Smith Living with a Seal by Jesse Itzler  Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

Helen Davis is an accomplished swimmer and sports psychologist and is renowned for working with some accomplished athletes - particularly,  former Ironman pro, Lucy Gossage. Based on the success Helen's approach brought to Lucy, together they created IRON-MIND, and online learning platform for helping you get the best out of your training and your races by having the right mindset. Having been through the IRON-MIND myself, it gives you a brilliant guide on how to address those limiting and irrational beliefs and helps you to focus on what will bring you the greatest success, whether that is to compete or complete. I  wanted to explore these ideas more with Helen, as well as talk to her about her complete career change in her 40s; retraining and switching from teaching to sport psychology.  www.thinkbelieveperform.co.ukThink Believe Perform on TwitterThink Believe Perform on FacebookThink Believe Perform on InstagramBook Recommendations:Tipping the Balance by Dr Martin Turner and Dr Jamie Barker  Performing Under Pressure by Josephine Perry This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

I recently read 'The lost art of Running' by Shane Benzie and it is one of the best running books I've ever read. Not surprising really, as this it's written by the running coach of Damian Hall and Nicky Spinks, to name a couple. The combination of technique and stories from runners around the world makes for compelling and productive reading. So I wanted to get Shane onto the TRIBEathlon podcast to learn more about how we can all improve our running technique and performance, and start to run more like the Kenyans!  www.runningreborn.co.ukRunningReborn on Facebookrunningreborn on TwitterRecommended BooksBorn to Run by Christopher McDougall The Lost Art of Running Audiobook by Shane Benzie Recommended AuthorDaniel Lieberman This episode was sponsored by Innov-8 and TRIBEathlon

When she isn't training, she coaches and supports teenagers through the charity CASS & Friends to help them make the most of their potential.

I first saw Dan Miller speak at my Vistage group (an executive coaching organisation), where he taught us about how to be healthy entrepreneurs. Dan is an award winning speaker and experienced martial artist with an incredible knowledge of the difference between being fit and being healthy, so I wanted to chat to him in this episode about how we can improve our performance and our health through our diet, as well as whether supplements are a waste of money or the key to our long term success. I also wanted to explore the mistakes we make with our health, and the tactics we can use to be in the best shape possible, whether that is for sport or for life. danmillerwellness.comRecommendations:Cronometer AppKannawayMen's MultivitaminsAnti-Fragile by Nassim Taleb The Whole 30 Cookbook by Dallas Hartwig The End of Alzheimer’s by Dr Dale Bredesen       This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

When it comes to endurance sport, for most people an Ironman is a pretty big challenge; so imagine trying to do 20 times that distance all in one go! Known as a 'double deca', anyone that does a 48 mile swim, then a 2240 mile ride followed up with a 520 mile run, should definitely have the word brutal in their mindset; and Brutal Claire has it in her name too. Not only does Brutal Claire compete in brutal endurance events, she organises them too, so in this episode I got the opportunity to chat to Claire about how and why she does such gruelling and difficult events.  www.brutalclaire.co.ukwww.brutalevents.co.ukNo Easy Day BookRecommended Authors:Mark Beaumont Alastair Humphreys Recommended Book:Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

In 2008, Mark Beaumont broke the around the world cycling record by an incredible 82 days, covering the 18,000 miles unsupported in just 194 days. He then returned with a support crew 10 years later to achieve the same feat in an incredible 78 days, averaging an astonishing 240 miles a day. I wanted to know more about how Mark achieves such incredible endurance and where he thinks the best cycling in the world is. markbeaumontonline.comBook Recommendations:Endure by Alex Hutchinson Performing Under Pressure by Josephine Perry Endless Perfect Circles by Ian Walker Guide to Truly Effective Cycling by Pav Bryan  This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

Dean Jackson founded Huub in 2011, a sporting brand which delivers performance enhancing products. Starting out with wetsuits which are sported by some of the world’s top triathletes, including the Brownlee brothers, they then brought this incredible success into the world of track cycling, with the Independent British UCI track team Huub Wattbike. I wanted to pick Deano's brains on how they've used research and technology to improve our swimming and cycling; but I didn't expect to laugh as much as I did.  huubdesign.comHuub Social Media Links:TwitterInstagramDean on LinkedInBook Recommendations:Shoe Dog by Phil Knight Who Moved My Cheese by Dr Spencer Johnson This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.

Occasionally you meet someone that changes your perspective forever. Sam Perkins was as passionate about triathlon as he is about Nottingham Forest, then he received the earth-shattering diagnosis that he had Motor Neurone Disease (MND), an incurable and terminal disease.  I got the opportunity to chat Sam, who is nothing short of inspiring, about how his love of triathlon is helping him cope, and how the sport is allowing him to raise money to raise awareness and help fund research to fight this awful disease. standagainstMND@gmail.comStand Against MND Facebook Stand Against MND Twitter Stand Against MND Instagram Stand Against MND LinkedInStand Against MND Virgin Money Giving Page #standagainstmndBook Recommendation:Going Long by Joe Friel Film Reccomendation:Touching the Void This episode was sponsored by TRIBEathlon and Britts Superfoods.
