By in Podcast

Mark Allen is a triathlon legend and someone who has been committed to the deep work of mental training for decades. Mark is a 6x Ironman World Champion and Olympic Distance World Champion. He holds the longest winning streak in the history of triathlon and was named the Greatest Endurance Athlete of All Time by ESPN. He is a member of the Ironman Hall of Fame, USAT Hall of Fame, ITU Hall of Fame and if there was a mental training Hall of Fame, most certainly he would be there too.

We are so grateful to have this amazing champion and coach with us. In this episode we discuss:

  • how Mark finds joy these days
  • walking the marathon of the Ironman World Championship when he was trying to win the race
  • the value of doing nothing
  • shamanism
  • MAF method of training
  • the impossibility factors of Mark’s final Ironman
  • surrender as a key factor to having a great race
  • how to quiet one’s mind
