Sami Inkinen: Hacking The Triathlon Run, Minimalist Training Style, LCHF Diet, and Rowing to Hawaii with His Wife

Learn how to hack your run with Sami Inkinen, one of triathlon’s fastest age-groupers who’s known for a minimalist style of training and just recently won top amateur at Wildflower on limited time by hacking his run. Sami is a successful entrepreneur and businessman and co-founder of Trulia.com, and he’s all about optimizing physical performance while still working 90-hour weeks and traveling extensively. Among his many accomplishments he’s gone sub-9 hours in multiple Ironmans including Kona, has multiple 70.3 AG titles including at the 70.3 World Championships, and most recently was overall age-group(AG) champion at Wildflower.

On this show we’ll discuss:
-How Sami “hacked” his run in four weeks to become this year’s Wildflower AG champion (coming off what he describes as “undertrained” and “overweight”)
-Four key components to success in hacking the run for triathlon
-How he involves strength and running for optimal performance
-His minimalist training style and how he combines s/b/r workouts for success with lower volume
-How he transformed from sugar burner to fat burner through a low carb high fat diet, and how his performance in triathlon increased from those dietary changes
-how he fuels during racing with UCan Superstarch now, and what he uses in triathlon
*Then switching gears…*
-How Sami and his wife Meredith are embarking this June on a 60-day journey of rowing more than 2,400 miles from SF to Hawaii while raising awareness in the fight against sugar in the typical diet (find out more at www.fatchancerow.org)
-The logistics of an endurance row across the Pacific including food/fuel, rowing shifts, rest, and more
-Training for this journey
-How we can follow them once they launch mid June
-and More!
