Lucy Charles-Barclay is one of the fastest triathletes in the world! On October 6, 2022 she came in 2nd at VinFast IRONMAN World Championships in Kona with s time of 8:41:37. The British sensation is the 2021 Ironman 70.3 World Champion, Ironman 70.3 European Champion, Collins Cup Winner on Team Europe, and 3X top Ironman World Championship Finisher.
Recorded and published in 2021, on this episode, I sync up with Lucy to talk about what it takes to be such a legend in the sport of triathlon. She shares what it was like transitioning from elite swimming into the world of triathlon. Lucy dials me in to her typical training routines, and we do a deep dive into the extreme importance of strength conditioning for all aspects of sport. She also gives me the rundown on her nutrition and which foods are her go-to for fueling such a demanding event as the Ironman.
Lucy and I talk about her recent races in Slovakia, Utah and Malibu and how she is having fun mixing up her distances. I get the scoop on Lucy’s fave cycling and swimming gear and her very cool partnership with RedBull. Of course, she can’t spend all of her time training, so I also asked Lucy about her most cherished downtime activities.
