IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN:
-What are typical endurance performance changes for masters athletes?
-What are the main physiological and non-physiological reasons for these reductions in performance?
-What should you do and what should you not do to counteract these changes?

The swim is the one triathlon discipline that most triathletes are the least confident about.

On today's episode he discusses how to improve your open water swimming in both training and racing.

Mind over muscle isn't just a saying, to an extent it's actual science, and you can use that to your advantage in your triathlon training. Today's interview is with Professor Samuele Marcora, Director of Research at the School of Sports and Exercise Sciences at the University of Kent. He is a leading expert on psychobiology in endurance performance, and has done extensive research showing that endurance performance is not just limited by our physiological fitness, but also by our minds and mental fitness. He is also leading the way in the fascinating research of Brain Endurance Training (BET).

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN:
-Why traditional physiological models aren't enough to explain limits in endurance performance
-Perception of effort and how it governs endurance performance
-The benefits of practicing positive, motivational self-talk
-Why mental fatigue is a critical component in the endurance performance model
-How you can use Brain Endurance Training to improve your tolerance to mental fatigue
