Kerry McGawley is Associate Professor at Mid Sweden University. She is also a coach, and a very good age group triathlete in her own right. In this interview, we discuss Kerry's own training and racing, as a case study of how a person with all the knowledge that Kerry has about sports science and physiology trains and achieves results like winning her age group in the IM70.3 World Championships. This is part one of a two-part interview, where part two is about the current science on the female athlete.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Kerry's process for planning her season, and her training weeks

-Her three races and three wins this year: World Triathlon Long Distance Championships, British Middle Distance Championships, and the Ironman 70.3 World Championships
