Simon Ward, The Triathlon Coach Podcast Channel

Simon Ward and Jack Maitland

July 31, 2018

This week I am speaking with another guest who is firmly rooted in the history of British Triathlon.  Jack Maitland has been involved in endurance sport for over 40 years from a junior competitor to an elite athlete and then onto an elite coach.

This conversation takes us on a journey of one man's life and the impact he has had on the sport of triathlon including:
  • Representing Scotland at 3 different international sports
  • An early example of polarised training
  • How fell running training could help you to become a more powerful cyclist
  • How a trip to Nepal for a marathon ended up in a lifelong passion for Yoga
  • How Jack and I started working together
  • Developing the best triathlon performance centre in the world
  • Coaching the first GB athletes to win olympic triathlon medals 
  • How a less interventionist coaching style can often get the best results
