I’m so glad I’ve found this podcast. I’m brand new to triathlon and I’ve signed up to a full Ironman in Youghal 2020. I now know that it’s a huge undertaking and I need all the help I can get to be ready to finish but the knowledge I’ve picked up from your guests is reassuring to me and I feel I’ll definitely finish well inside the cut off time.
It’s handy snippets and hearing that others struggled is motivation to keep going and some of their go too sessions are a great addition and test fir the training plan.Thanks Brad and team keep the episodes coming.
Really enjoying listening to Brad and his guests.... giving me some serious motivation on my long runs!! Thanks Brad, keep doing what you are doing!!!
