Triathlon is a multi-sport sport (say that 5 times fast.) Triathlon requires a lot of discipline and training. There are a multitude of ways to get information to help you with your training and even a few ways to keep you disciplined. You can read articles here on Run Tri Bike, follow athletes on social media platforms. Another option is to hire a coach. And today, now more than ever you can listen to podcasts.
There seems to be a new podcast showing up on a daily basis and that can make it difficult to know where to turn. We obviously have our favorite triathlon podcasts that you can access on our website. The first of these podcasts is I Race Like A Girl hosted by Amy Woods and Angela Naeth (disclaimer: Angela is a co-owner of Run Tri Bike.) The other podcast is Tri Beginner’s Luck hosted by Michanda Myles.
Since there is more than one way to skin a cat, you’ll also want to check out Amy’s other favorite triathlon podcasts. Did she miss your favorite? Tell us by sending an email to email@example.com. We will add it to a new article for our Readers Favorite Triathlon Podcasts. Happy Listening.
My Favorite Triathlon Podcasts
Host: Amy Woods and Angela Naeth
Why we love this podcast: First, it is hosted by a professional athlete and an age grouper, so you get two different perspectives on training and racing and life in general. Both are coaches and that shows in their conversation. You will enjoy the wealth of knowledge they share. They cover a lot of different topics, interview pros, do race recaps, and also answer listener questions. There is a lot of diversity in the podcast. Finally, they are friends in real life, and teammates on the I Race Like A Girl tri team.
Host: Michanda Myles
Why we love this podcast: If you’re just getting started in triathlon and want to hear how other athletes got started then this is the podcast for you. Michanda Myles interviews athletes from across the spectrum in a manner that sets them at ease. You will hear lots of laughter along with an array of impactful tips to help you in your journey.
You can listen to our co-owner Jason Bahamundi in this episode on how he got started.
Host: Brenton Ford
Why we love this podcast: Brenton is knowledgeable and clear in his approach to swim training. He has a huge Instagram and YouTube presence and his website is a wealth of information. On his podcast, he will often do “case studies” where he brings on swimmers who have used his programming to improve their swimming. You will learn a lot just by listening to his podcast.
Host: Cindy Kuzma and Carrie Jackson
Why we love this podcast: Their tag line is “We’re sorry you’re here, but we’re glad you’re with us.” Even if you have never had an injury, Cindy and Carrie are worth a listen. They interview athletes who have overcome obstacles, and their podcast focuses on mental toughness and grit and hope. Beyond the podcast, they have written a book called “Rebound” which should be on every athlete’s bookshelf. You do not have to be injured to get a lot out of this podcast
Host: Ali Feller
Why we love this podcast: Ali interviews runners from all over the world and also does live episodes from races all over the country. She asks great questions in a relaxed setting. Every kind of runner is celebrated, from the pros to the back-of-the-packers. Her interviews are fun and it feels like you are listening to a couple of friends chat.
Host: Robbie Bruce and Mike Tarolly
Why we love this podcast: Robbie and Mike have recorded over 600 episodes, twice a week, for years. They are coaches and best friends and have their own coaching company called C26. They don’t usually have guests, so it’s just the two of them giving advice, talking about races, and offering training tips. The two of them always tell it like it is and you can rest assured that you will always find great nuggets of truth in their podcasts.
