Today we recap the Ironman World Championship and look at racing strategy, the coverage, and what lessons we can learn as age groupers from an unbelievable race. We look at Iden and Blummenfelt and what their real training secret likely is. We talk about the big swim pack, drafting on the bike, and what all that did to set up the run. We talk about the shift in qualification standards, the move to make things seem easier, and fast shoes. Our belief that “once you get too hot, it’s over” played out again as did “you don’t have to catch them, they’ll come back to you.” Lots of interesting topics to go over from KONA, but we also bring it back to the amateur level and ask important questions about your dreams of getting faster, including, “Are your buddies slowing you down?” 

Topics: 

  • KONA is a special place, but should the race rotate locations?
  • The 2 Day format . . . good or bad?
  • Breaking down the broadcast 
  • Advertising overload?
  • The quest to make everything possible 
  • A mother wins 
  • Easier and easier to qualify - does it lose its luster?
  • The big swim pack in the men’s race 
  • The bike and drafting 
  • Shower, dry off, 5k 
  • Penalties 
  • The swim game has changed 
  • Not as much separation 
  • Iden and Blummenfelt worked together the whole race 
  • Laidlow upset the apple cart 
  • Iden’s Hat
  • Bike fits 
  • Fast Hoes
  • Once you get too hot, it’s over
  • Iden and Blummenfelt’s REAL secret sauce 
  • You don’t have to catch them, they’ll come back to you
  • Are your buddies slowing you down?
