After standing on the sidelines of Lake Placid and Louisville this year, I am reminded of two contradictory things. First, how easy my job is. Second, how important it is that I am there.

There are two very important questions that you, as an Ironman athlete, have to be ready to answer about your bike fitness heading into the final eight weeks of your Ironman or Half Ironman training cycle. First you have to know what your Functional Threshold Power (link?) is, or at least the Heart Rate equivalent. Second, you have to be able to give a resounding “YES!” answer as to whether or not you have done all of your bike workouts, especially the longer sessions.
We appreciate your patience as we update you on our Team’s performance, first with pictures and video (with more on our Facebook page), then with our Race Report Podcast Series, and now with their Ironman Louisville results and some excerpts from their race reports in our members-only forum.
Endurance Nation has been promoting its Four Keys of Ironman Execution for several years now. Our macro level approach to organizing your expectations and managing your day has proven successful for thousands of Ironman athletes across the globe. We get e-mails and feedback all the time, and nowhere is the success of the system more apparent than at the finish line. Learn how you can use the same approach to evaluate your race and find out how you truly performed outside of the finishing time.
