Episode 155 (Monday 12 November)

Lars Finanger is another case study showing how when you don't have a lot of available time to train, you need to be very smart and make the most with the time you have. Lars finished Ironman Texas 2017 in a sub-9:30 time, on less than 9 hours of training per week. The most surprising thing about his training is that roughly 40% of it was swimming!

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-A big-picture overview of Lars' build to Ironman Texas

-An example of a typical training week for him (which was always less than 9 hours)

-Factors outside of the actual Ironman training that Lars focused on to achieve a fast time

-Lars' top tips for time-crunched age-groupers and their Ironman training

-Swimrun events in the US: Lars is the race director of Casco Bay Islands, Boston Harbor Islands, and San Juan Islands
