Running slow vs. Running easy. Periodization in your training plan. Activating your lats in the pool. Don’t forget to check out our C26 Club Program at c26triathlon.com

  • Do you ever wish you started Ironman training earlier in life?
  • What’s the best way for athletes that carry more muscle to train?
  • I understand run frequency is important this time of year, but what do you do if your biking is also a limiter? Is there an approach to address both?
