The Endurance Specific Podcast

Today Pete and I speak with Grant Giles on the components athletes need to create their own success in Ironman racing. We also discuss Gilesy’s new project Sport Support. An area that commonly gets neglected in lieu of just training the physical but an area that undoes many an athlete.

Enjoy as we break down what it takes with Grant.

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • We go in depth into 10 areas athletes need to cover to be successful in Ironman racing
  • The flipside of a driven personality
  • A treadmill test to see how far one can go and unshackle some limitations
  • Sport Support
  • TSS (Training Stress Score) and why it’s greatly limited.
