The Endurance Specific Podcast

Today Charlotte and I analyze Ironman Canada race day in the tough conditions that athletes were presented with on the day. Being on the ground we witnessed many mistakes that led to much slower times and many DNF's. It's a tough course but many athletes still performed and they did so because they executed wisely and likely adjusted expectations to match the conditions of the day while still racing. As always no matter the result, there are many lessons that can lead us to become better athletes. 



  • Propper conditioning
  • What many athletes were lacking
  • How not to DNF
  • How to get lucky! 
  • What stuffed some athletes up pre-race
  • Learning to suffer
  • A rant on what I hope not to see again
  • And more
