Always Learning with Lucy Charles-Barclay (S16E11)

In this Episode

This week on the show Alyssa & Haley are joined by professional triathlete and 2021 Ironman 70.3 World Champion Lucy Charles-Barclay. Lucy had an incredibly busy race schedule in 2021, competing across many distances and disciplines from Olympic Trials in swimming, to Ironman and sprint distance triathlons, and even a local 10k. She explains how she approaches each race with the mindset that embraces learning from new experiences, and hopes that by jumping into new things it will help to make her a better triathlete.

Lucy recently competed in the World Triathlon Championship sprint race in Abu Dhabi, finishing a very impressive 12th amongst a stacked field of short course superstars. She gives us a recap of the race, including how she dealt with the scorching heat, and also gives some of her insider tips for age group athletes who are heading to Abu Dhabi for the ITU Age Group World Championships next year.

In the lead-up to the 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Lucy and her team spent a few weeks training at altitude in Cedar City. Lucy tells us about what goes into having such a great team around her to support her in the pursuit of her goals. This team includes her sister Holly, who is a photographer and videographer, and also manages Lucy’s social media. Lucy talks about her close bond with her sister and why it’s important to her to surround herself with the right people. You can catch Haley & Alyssa’s interview with Holley Charles next week!
