    [VAULT] Nadine Champion on Fear, Regret & Using 10 Seconds of Courage

    24/05/2020 Duración: 01h20min

    Nadine Champion is a Thai Boxing and Kickboxing Champion. Now, I’ll be the first to admit I don’t have any interest, whatsoever, in martial arts (and I tell Nadine this early in our conversation). But this isn’t a conversation about martial arts. It’s a conversation about a normal woman with big dreams trying to find a way through her fear and self-doubt, realising she was seeking approval and validation from her Sensei because she didn’t believe she was ‘enough’ and who (in order to achieve her goals inside the ring) had to confront the reality of who she was outside the ring. These days, Nadine is a professional speaker after her talk at TEDx Sydney talk in 2015 (also, her first-ever public speaking gig) produced a standing ovation and has since been described as one of the most memorable TEDxTalks of all time. Nadine is also the author of a book called “10 Seconds of Courage”. It’s a very real, raw, emotional and honest account of Nadine’s career as a kickboxer, her battle with cancer and her experience of

    #139: Hanny Allston on Finding Her Feet

    17/05/2020 Duración: 01h20min

    Hanny is no stranger to the trail running and outdoor adventure communities in Australia. In 2006, Hanny won the Junior and Senior World Orienteering titles. In doing so, she became the first non-European to win an Orienteering World Championship and the first person, male or female, to hold both the Senior and Junior title in the same year. In the years since, she’s achieved a long list of victories, records and placings in the worlds of mountain and trail running, ultramarathon running and sky running. She’s also the co-founder of my favourite retail and online store - Find Your Feet - based in Tasmania with her husband Graham. And on top of all that, she’s a performance coach and the host of an incredible podcast also called ‘Find Your Feet. We cover all of that, and more, in our first conversation (which you can find here). This conversation is very different. This is a conversation about Hanny finding her feet. She has just released a memoir - her first memoir - called ‘Finding My Feet’. I was lucky enou

    #138: Eloise Wellings on Freedom, Running Fast and Bouncing Back

    10/05/2020 Duración: 01h06min

    Eloise grew up in a family of runners and, while watching the Olympics at the age of 10, set the goal to become an Olympian. By 16, she had qualified for her first Olympics; the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. But sadly, Eloise’s early career was beset by injuries. As one article I read so painfully wrote, ‘it would be 12 years, 11 stress fractures and 3 failed attempts later’ before she finally made her Olympic debut at the London Olympic Games in 2012. Eloise and I recorded this conversation in midst of the Covid-19 crisis and so that’s where we start our conversation today - with how she’s navigated the impact of it with two small children at home and how it’s affected her training and her attempts to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (now being held in 2021). Eloise is also the co-founder of an extraordinary organisation called the Love Mercy Foundation which she co-founded with Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon that works to empower communities in Northern Uganda to overcome poverty

    [VAULT] Michael Milton on Fighting Your Natural Instincts (and Knowing You’ll Finish Last)

    03/05/2020 Duración: 51min

    Michael Milton knows all about fear, self-doubt, bravery and courage. After losing his leg to bone cancer at the age of 8, he has gone onto become one of Australia’s most talented, decorated and all-round athletes. He is a 5x Paralympic Gold Medalist who has competed in 6 Paralympic Games, both in Winter for skiing and in Summer for cycling.   Michael also holds World Records for speed skiing and for the fastest marathon on crutches. And he’s also summited Kilimanjaro and walked the Kokoda track twice. In this conversation, we discuss: - what it’s like to ski over 200km/hr (132mph), - his experience with fear, self-doubt and the Imposter Complex, - why he’s entered many races over the years knowing he’ll finish last, - why you should keep pushing forward when your instinct is telling you to back off, and - his experience competing in the Ultra-Trail Australia 50km race in 2017.

    #137: Michelle Taylor on Getting Fit with MS

    26/04/2020 Duración: 36min

    Michelle was a business owner, gym junkie and busy mum when she broke a foot in December, 2017. After experiencing balance and walking issues she attributed to a second broken foot in December 2018, Michelle was eventually diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disorder (CMT) in March 2019. Both neurological conditions, MS and CMT have left Michelle unable to run or move her legs quickly. But that didn’t stop her from entering - and finishing - her first (and last) triathlon at the Husky Triathlon in February 2020. Michelle tells the story in this conversation of what unfolded, her experience of crossing the finish line and what that race means to her. And trust me when I say this — you're going to need a tissue ;) Get the full show notes for the episode here. — Visit the Sparta Chicks Radio website here  Follow Sparta Chicks Radio on Facebook: facebook.com/SpartaChicks  Follow Michelle on Instagram: instagram.com/gettingfitwithms/

    [VAULT] Dr Simon Marshall & Lesley Paterson: Brave Athlete, Calm the F*ck Down

    19/04/2020 Duración: 59min

    Lesley Paterson is a professional mountain biker, 5x World Champion in off-road triathlon, an Ironman Triathlon Champion, coach and (according to her bio) foul-mouthed Scots lassie. Simon is a sports psychologist with a distinguished career. He's a former Professor, has published over 100 scientific articles on the psychology of exercise, been cited in scientific literature over 10,000 times and had real-world practical experience as the Performance Psychologist for the BMC Racing team, a pro cycling team that competes in the Tour de France. They are also married, the force behind Braveheart Coaching and the co-authors of a fantastic book I highly recommend to all athletes called The Brave Athlete: Calm the F*ck Down and Rise to the Occasion. In this conversation, we talk about everything from: - why Lesley initially retired from sport at the age of 20 due to her disillusionment and frustration and this lead her and Simon to work together to develop this model, - how your brain works (and is wired to work), -

  • #136: Mel Stamell on Innovation, Adrenaline  Resilience

    #136: Mel Stamell on Innovation, Adrenaline & Resilience

    12/04/2020 Duración: 50min

    Mel is an inventor and adventurer who has tried it all: kayaking, climbing, caving, mountain biking and, her favourite, skiing. Mel also has a rare form of Dwarfism and so most commercially available sporting and outdoor adventure equipment doesn’t fit or suit her. Luckily Mel grew up with an interest in fixing things (initially with sticky tape) and parents who taught Mel and her two sisters - who also have Dwarfism - from an early age to adapt and find ingenious ways to get around the challenges their height presented them. That interest not only led Mel to get a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering but develop the skills to adapt or make from scratch her sporting and adventure equipment including kayaks, paddles and wetsuits. Mel starred in a fantastic documentary called (you guessed it) ‘Mel’ which aired at the Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour in 2019.

    [VAULT] Natalie Cook on the Search for Mental Toughness and Emotional Stability

    05/04/2020 Duración: 59min

    Self-belief is such a murky, fluid concept. Some days you feel on top of the world and unstoppable. The next, it’s gone and you’re convinced you were fooling yourself. So how do you develop unwavering self-belief (and keep it)? In 2017, I asked Olympic Gold Medalist Natalie Cook In this interview, we discuss her 4-year journey of personal development after the Atlanta Olympics when she realised she didn’t have the mental toughness or emotional stability needed to achieve her goal of winning the Olympic Gold medal in Sydney. Plus in an unexpected twist, I got called out on why I was hiding behind my fear and not telling the world about one of my goals.

    #135: Emily Chappell on Self-Doubt, Doing the 'Impossible' & Racing Across Europe

    29/03/2020 Duración: 01h10min

    The TransCon is a self-supported, single-stage bike race across Europe. The clock starts and doesn’t stop until you arrive at the finish. And aside from a few checkpoints, there’s no set route. Participants map and plan their way across Europe and decide where and when to ride, eat and sleep along the way. In 2016, the race started in Belgium. And 3,800km and 13 days, 10 hours later, Emily arrived in Istambul, winning the women’s category in the process! While we discuss some of the events and adventures she’s had over the years, there are 2 key themes throughout this conversation. First, why it's important not to let what you've done (or not done) in the past define or limit what you think you’re capable of in the future. And secondly, being open to the idea that things which currently seem impossible actually aren’t.

    [VAULT] Siri Lindley on Self-Belief and Dancing with Your Fears

    22/03/2020 Duración: 57min

    How do you use your fear and self-doubt to get the best out of your yourself? That's the question we explored in this conversation from 2017. Siri was 2x-ranked the #1 triathlete in the world and the 2002 ITU World Champion. Since retiring, Siri has gone onto have an extraordinarily successful career as a coach and is regarded as one of the best triathlon coaches in the world. Even if you aren't interested in triathlon, I have no doubt you'll gain a lot from Siri's heart-centred approach training, racing and life.

    #134: Molly Galbraith on Lifting Women Up at Girls Gone Strong

    15/03/2020 Duración: 01h06min

    Molly Galbraith’s love affair with strength training began in 2004 when she discovered powerlifting. A few years later, she began competing in figure competitions. And yet it was during this time that she began a vicious cycle of stripping weight to compete, then binging and regaining weight for several years until her “body hit a wall” and she was diagnosed with Hashimotos, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and adrenal issues. What began as a mission to change how her body looked, Molly now leads the team at GGS on a mission to educate and encourage women to have agency and autonomy over their bodies.

    #133: Lucy Barnard on Year 3 of Walking the Length of the World

    01/03/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    10 days ago, Sparta Chicks Radio celebrated its 3rd birthday. And there is no-one I’d rather share that celebration with than Lucy Barnard! Lucy is attempting to become the 1st woman to walk the length of the world. She set off in February 2017 from Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina to walk to Barrow, Alaska; a journey of 30,000km /20,000mi across 15 countries she anticipated would take her 5 years. Yes, years! Lucy was first on the podcast in March 2018 (you can find that episode here). When I was preparing to speak to Lucy for that episode, I realised we share a unique connection; we both started our respective journeys - Lucy started walking and I published the first podcast - on the very same day in 2017. That conversation turned into our first anniversary / birthday celebration and we agreed to catch up each year for an update on her progress! (Our second episode can be found here) This is our 3rd annual episode and Lucy shares how her expedition has unfolded over the last 12 months. Get the full show notes

    #132: Lisa Blair on Imagination, Fear & Solo Sailing

    16/02/2020 Duración: 01h10min

    Lisa Blair was 22 when she discovered a passion for sailing. Just 6 years later, she completed her first circumnavigation of the world as part of the Clipper Round the World Yacht race. Since then she’s gone onto sail solo to New Zealand twice, to skipper the first all-female team in 16 years to race the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht race and set not one but two World Records in the process of becoming the first woman to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia. In the midst of that, in 2017 Lisa set out on her most ambitious project to date;  to become the first woman to sail solo unassisted and non-stop around Antarctica and to break the men’s World Record in the process. As you’ll hear in this conversation, that expedition did not go to plan and on a stormy night 72 days into her trip and 1,000 nautical miles from shore, her boat lost its mast and Lisa had to fight for 4 hours to save her boat -- and her life. Not only did she survive the night and spend 9 days limping back to port in Cape Town,

    02/02/2020 Duración: 01h09min

    Ultra-endurance cyclist Tiffany Winchester returns to Sparta Chicks Radio for the second part of our conversation about her race at the iconic 1,200km Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) cycling race in 2019. You can listen to the first half of our conversation here. This time, Tiff returns to share the aftermath of the race - the physical, mental and emotional trauma it inflicted on her, the depression that followed and how she was able to recover from it and get back on her bike. This is a very different conversation from part 1. It’s a very raw and vulnerable conversation and I truly appreciate Tiff’s honesty in sharing her struggles after PBP, the support she received and how she found her way through.

    19/01/2020 Duración: 01h16min

    Tiffany Winchester (aka Tiff or Tiffo) was first on the podcast in June 2019. In that conversation, Tiff shared her background and her preparations for an iconic event called Paris-Brest-Paris (or PBP) - a 1,200km event held in France every 4 years considered to be the Olympics of the ultra-endurance cycling world. This time, Tiff returns to share how the event unfolded, the trauma it inflicted on her, the physical, mental and emotional toll it took on her and how she was able to recover from it. An iconic race - and a great storyteller - require a long conversation. So I have divided this episode into two parts. In Part 1, Tiff shares the final stage of her preparation and how the race unfolded - including why she had to apply white wine vinegar to her “lady parts”.

    05/01/2020 Duración: 01h42min

    [TW/CN: this post and episode discuss suicide] One of our most popular guests, Katee Pedicini, returns to Sparta Chicks Radio this week. Yet this is a very different conversation from our previous episodes. This time, Katee shares the story of her mental health journey over the last 20 years. In her 20s, Katee was (finally) diagnosed with a condition called Pre-Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (or PMDD). Katee describes PMDD as extreme PMS “wrapped up with anxiety, depression, sometimes psychosis and suicidality or suicidal tendencies” We begin this conversation with Katee’s story. Her experience of the symptoms of PMDD, including suicidal ideation. Then we transition into a broader conversation about suicide and mental health; why suicide is often still seen as a ‘taboo’ and what Katee believes needs to change to enable it to be discussed more openly, and with less shame. Finally, we step back and discuss the intersection between mental health and endurance sports. This was an extremely difficult conversation, f

    #1 Most Popular Episode of 2019 - Dr Stacy Sims

    30/12/2019 Duración: 01h03min

    The #1 most popular episode of Sparta Chicks Radio in 2019 was Dr Stacy Sims on How to Work With Your Body, Not Fight Against It Dr Stacy Sims is an environmental exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist at the University of Waikato in NZ. She’s an incredible athlete in her own right too, having competed at the Hawaii Ironman in Kona as well as the Xterra (Off-Road Triathlon) World Championships in Maui. Plus she’s the author of an important book called “Roar: How to Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Female Physiology for Optimum Performance, Great Health and a Strong, Lean Body for Life” At the core of Stacy’s work is the concept that women are not small men. It seems obvious, I know! Yet the majority of sports science research - and a result, the majority of what we understand about the best way to train, eat, drink, race and recover - has been done on men. Even the common training program structure of 3 weeks of training followed by 1 week of recovery is - you guessed it! - based on research done on

    29/12/2019 Duración: 01h08min

    The #2 most popular episode of Sparta Chicks Radio in 2019 was Samantha Gash on Inspiration, Impact & ‘Run India’ It’s easy in this day and age to think that one person - that you - can’t make a difference. But Sam has proved that wrong, time and time again. In her first ultramarathon in 2010, Sam became the first female and youngest person to complete the Racing the Planet 4 Deserts Grand Slam, running 4 ultra marathons across the driest, windiest, hottest and coldest deserts on Earth. That was followed in 2011 by a 222km non-stop race through the Indian Himalayas. It was during that run across the Himalayas that Sam decided to use her running for a greater purpose. Fast forward a few years and in 2016, as an ambassador for World Vision, Sam set out on her most ambitious project to date; running across India. Over 76 days, she ran 3,253km from the west to the east of India and, in the process, raised close to $200,000 to fund 6 programs to improve access to education for children in India. In this conver

    The 3rd most popular episode of Sparta Chicks Radio in 2019 was Renee Kiley on Inspiration, Goal Setting & the Fear of Failure In November 2013, Renee joined friends to watch the Noosa Triathlon. And life hasn’t been the same since. At the time Renee was an overweight, unhealthy, pack-a-day smoker. Yet despite not having ridden a bike or swum laps since she was a kid, Renee set a goal to compete in the Noosa Triathlon the following year. She did that, and more: less than 3 1/2 years later, Renee raced for the first time as a professional triathlete.  Many people involved in endurance sports have undergone dramatic transformations; from losing weight, quitting smoking and overcoming major health issues. But I was curious how Renee was able to take her performance and achievements to the next level and became a professional athlete in a sport she didn’t know even existed only a few years ago. So I asked :) Get the full show notes for the episode here. — Visit the Sparta Chicks Radio website here  Follow Spa

    The #4 most popular episode of Sparta Chicks Radio in 2019 was Jess Fox on Resilience, Goal Setting & Proving Yourself Jess Fox was just 18 (and 3 months out of High School) when she qualified for the 2012 London Olympics. She left those Games with a Silver medal and, in hindsight, admits she felt the need to prove herself and to show that her result in London wasn’t a fluke. Of course, it wasn’t a fluke - in fact, it was just the start of an incredible career! A 2 x Olympic medalist (Jess also won Bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympics), Jess is now the most successful canoe slalom paddler - male or female - in the history of the sport! In this fun conversation, we discussed: - the power of writing down your goals and seeing them on a daily basis, - how she deals with her own internal expectations as opposed to the external expectations placed on her by the media and the public, and - why you should welcome conditions that aren’t ideal in training.
