Today, Coach Robbie grills Mike about what it was like to go from the couch to Ironman as a 50-year-old.  The whole process started with a 5K and ended at Ironman Wisconsin 18 months later.  They discuss the physical and mental components of changing a lifestyle in such a dramatic fashion and what was learned along the way.  Some of the topics are:

- What convinced Mike he could tackle and Ironman
- The importance of recovery as you get older
- Turning points in Mike's belief system
- How Mike went from a 42 minute Olympic swim to a 1:20 Ironman at Wisconsin
- How to virtually guarantee a solid Ironman run
- Mike's longest run ever was 14 miles
- How Coach Robbie kept him focused over a long 9-month-plan
- Overcoming mental and emotional burnout
- The mind game Mike played with himself to assure a sub-12 Ironman
