The Build Up To Kona – How To Prepare Like A Coach

800 533 Patrick McCrann

Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation for another weekly endurance podcast.

This week Coach P reviews his Ironman Hawaii, World Championship experience, starting with the first half of his year — planning, training, preparation, etc.

There is a myriad of things that go into a “good” race at the world championships. Some of it is just luck. But luck certainly favors the prepared….so tune in to hear how Coach P made sure he was as ready as possible.

Key Talking Points include:

  • An early qualification at Ironman® Cabos
  • Season planning to eliminate common injuries/setbacks from years past
  • Race training without the pressure of volume or ramping up the bike as well as the run
  • Value of “early” Race Planning in order to make your final training weeks as specific as possible
