What if triathlons (or 70.3’s) weren’t as intimidating as they may appear? What if, as a successful long distance runner, you already possessed a unique advantage over athletes in the other disciplines? And what if, you could become a successful triathlete, or even just improve your running, without a significant increase in training hours by training more efficiently? Rob Wilby is a professional triathlon coach based in England, where he is head coach at both Team Oxygenaddict and Knutsford Triathlon Club. He specialises in helping age group triathletes rapidly improve, by focussing on maximising the effectiveness of training time and addressing their biggest performance limiters. Over the last 20 years, he has helped hundreds of athletes exceed their expectations, from completing their first triathlon through to qualifying for the World Championships. Rob provides great insight on the world of triathlons and 70.3’s and breaks down some perceived resistances that may prevent runners from entering these events. He’s a fellow podcaster and has wonderful tips on training, coaching and having a successful mindset to enjoy what may be a new experience for runners. If you’ve ever wanted to pursue a triathlon, but felt intimidated, Rob has great advice to help you get started. If you have never even considered triathlons, Rob’s training perspective can help you increase your running performance by leveraging cross-discipline training.   Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss today: Why runners have a unique advantage over swimmers and cyclists in triathlons. How inclusive triathlons are for newcomers. Maintaining Training / Life balance. Equipment recommendations. Benefits of training in multiple disciplines. Swim form analysis and tips. Questions Rob is asked: 3:55 What is team Oxygenaddict? 5:55 How did you end up giving yourself a year to get ready for your first triathlon as opposed to waiting until the last minute? 8:19 Where did the name “Oxygenaddict” come from? 9:30 What are the brand advertising limitations for triathlon kits? 11:30 What’s your backstory? 17:59 What’s the percentage of people transitioning to triathlons are runners and what would you say to someone considering a transition to let them know they have support from the rest of the triathlon community? 22:48 What would you say about the difference between just running vs. running right after cycling? 25:20 Do you see triathletes of all levels (especially novices) competing? 28:11 What would you say to people who are 4-5 hour marathoners; is there an opportunity for them in the world of triathlon? 29:53 Do you have to like all 3 disciplines? 33:23 Do triathletes typically have 3 separate coaches for each discipline? 35:31 How does one train for a triathlon without it completely taking over their life? 40:57 As a coach, do you worry about recreational / mid-pack athletes burning out from overtraining? 43:36 What is your swim analysis? 48:21 Is there a general best swim form or are there a variety of good forms? 49:57 Do you breathe one side or both? 51:42 Any additional swim-form tips? 53:15 Is it more likely that a fit runner who thinks they’re not a good swimmer has bad form than that they’re not fit enough? 54:48 What about open-water swimming vs. indoor pool? 57:05 Good brands of entry-level bikes and wetsuits? 58:46 What is your podcast about? 1:02:52 Final Kick Round Quotes by Rob: “I’ve never come across anybody who’s elitist or snobbish at all at any of the events that I’ve been to.” “Without a doubt, the people who make the strongest athletes in triathlon come from a running background.” “You’ll see a massive variety of people at these events.” “(By training for a triathlon) ...you’ve consistently run for 12 weeks without getting injured, you’ve done all this hard work on the bike without getting injured, your body’s had a different stimulus without getting injured, and all of a sudden the result of that is, it turns out, you’ve got out of your own
