First note, if you’re racing here, please stop by and say hi at our booth in the Ironman Expo Friday and Saturday. Mike and Robbie will be there. We have over 50 athletes racing this weekend in Chattanooga and today, we go step by step through the course and offer strategies on pacing, fueling, and the mental game for success. We begin with the Swim Start, including when to get there and how to fuel as you position yourself in the massive field of athletes. Then to the “fast but fair” bike course. We break it out by section and look at where to push and when to hold off for your best bike split. Onto the run where it can either be fast or eat your lunch. There’s not much truly flat here, so racing smart, understanding the terrain, and staying cool with a lower HR could make the difference.
