The Build Up To Kona: How To Stay On Target

800 548 Patrick McCrann

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

This week Coach Patrick finishes up his 2018 Kona Race Report Podcast. You can catch Part One here (The Build Up To Kona: How To Train Like A Coach) and find out exactly how the race went, and what adjustments he made in order to stay on target.

Key Talking Points include:

  • What worked (and didn’t) in the Swim;
  • The “decreasing” power plan for Kona and how it’s similar to the pro men’s race;
  • How he used a Training Stress Scored (TSS) Budget for the Bike to stay honest and on target;
  • The role Stryd Powermeter played in making sure he ran his most effective IM marathon in a long time
