The weather looks like it might be perfect for Ironman Chattanooga, but don’t let that fool you. Ironman is always hard. Today we look at race strategies, including the blurring of your Zones and how that can impact your performance. We also talk about racing free and how that can be difficult for a lot of us who haven’t raced in a long time. We go over how people dig a nutrition hole they can’t get out of. We also dig deep into the mind games you can face and how to trust your gut and race free.
