We have a really exciting episode here on the Challenge Roth Road to Roth Podcast Series which includes a great interview with Jan Frodeno, Anne Haug, and Sarah True’s Coach; Dan Lorang.
So for the first time listeners, a bit of a backstory here with the Road to Roth Series – at the beginning of August I announced that I’ll be doing my first full distance triathlon at Challenge Roth in 2020, and since then, I found that a lot of listeners were actually on a similar path; whether it was with Roth or another race; but they too were on their crazy journey to their first full distance triathlon and looking forward to hearing content specific to the full distance!
Of course, never having actually done the distance before, I figured everyone could benefit the most in a series where I interview top professional triathletes and coaches that will be able to provide a ton of training tips specific to the full distance as well as give us the motivation and insight we need to help us maximize our performances come race day!
Motivation and inspiration seems endless in this interview with Dan as he describes how he met and coached Anne Haug when she just started getting into Triathlon and how Jan came to him while he was an ITU athlete asking if he could coach him to transition into IRONMAN with the ambitious goal to win the IRONMAN World Championships. Dan also talks to us about what’s ahead here for Jan and Anne as they prepare for Challenge Roth 2020!
For a little insight on his roles in coaching; aside from coaching two world champions, he is also the Head of innovation for the Pro German Cycling team Bora Hansgrohe and coach of Sarah True and a former coach of the German Triathlon Federation so he comes to us with many years of wisdom and a never-ending list of accolades and leaves us with some excellent tips for age groupers looking to train for long distance triathlons.
This was an awesome podcast and I hope you leave with some insight on how the best in the world train, think, and prepare for races like Challenge Roth and KONA. So now, sit back, take notes, and enjoy the show.
