We have a good old fashion coaching tips interview this week with Sansego coach Matt Smith. Matt was on the deck at the Boulder camp during our pool sets this spring. He gave tips from his observations on deck and also did some video analysis observations and recommendations. I picked up a few tips from Matt that I incorporated into my training and believe those changes were part of what led to a 1.2 mile PR at Boulder 70.3 a few weeks ago. We wanted to get him on the show and share his expertise with you and see if we can get you to your new swim PR.

Thanks to last week's guest, Richard Rozok - a repeat top 10 Norseman Xtreme Triathlon finisher. If you didn't hear what makes Norseman so Xtreme and Richard's extreme Czechoslovakian accent, go back and check out Episode #139.
Side note that I have some corrections to some information I've shared about iKOR to share in the post interview discussion.
Coach Matt Smith lives in Boulder with his wife Molly, who by the way are very nearly new parents. Early congrats to them both. As you'll hear, he and the Sansego team believe in helping athletes find their full potential.
To partner with goal oriented athletes to help them accomplish their goals by setting a realistic training plan that integrates with their life vs. dominating it.
- Coaching is a co-active relationship between coach and the athlete, we know more together. Matt will work with the athlete to develop a race schedule and training plan that fits with their lifestyle and progresses with their ability level.
- Matt sees his role is to show an athlete they can do more than they think they can. I will provide support and motivation to get them to stretch their limits, yet set realistic goals and benchmarks in the process.
- Matt will strive to keep an athlete injury free. Plans are built with proper rest and recovery included. I listen to how athletes are feeling physically and mentally and adapt accordingly.
- Direct communication is key. Matt will always respond to athletes in an honest, consistent, timely manner.
- Multisport is a lifestyle. Matt models a healthy lifestyle and encourage athletes to think about training as a life long endeavor vs. a short term goal. The sport should be hard work, but fun at the same time.

- Race and Team Communications - there are two radios in the car. One is Race Radio, which is the Race Director communication to the Team Directors. Race Radio is the first car behind the peloton and they communicate rider calls for water bottles, mechanicals and crashes. The other radio is the Team Radio set to a different frequency. All the riders and both cars have radios set to that frequency. This is for the Team Director primarily to communicate to the riders. If there's a split in the group, both cars talk to the riders in the group that they are covering. The riders can also call to the cars. Here's a quick 30 second sound bite. The first thing you'll here is Race Radio talking about the upcoming Feed Zone. The next you'll hear is some words of encouragement from Nicholas Graeff to a rider, and in another case to go to the medical car for assistance. You'll also hear our car, Car 2 calling to Car 1.

- Ordered a bottle for my mom for her birthday and she's just starting to take it this weekend. Great customer service and email status from iKOR when your order ships and when it's delivered. I received a text from my mom when it arrived and at the same time I received an email from iKOR that it was delivered. Pretty slick!
