Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs guest editing upcoming Triathlon Plus Guide to Ironman.
Triathlon Plus have joined forces with Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs and Boardman Bikes to bring you Pete Jacobs’ Guide to Ironman – the Ironman handbook from the man at the very top of the sport.
Covering swim, bike and run, as well as tackling the Ironman lifestyle, nutrition and positive mental techniques, Jacobs gives his expert guidance and top tips to get you through your first Ironman or go even faster in your next event.
“I’ve struggled with fatigue since I was 15,” says Jacobs. “I could never train as much as any other athlete. But I kept making the same mistakes over and over again and ending up on the sidelines for weeks, too tired to think or train. I always believed I could win Hawaii if I could find the missing link and somehow train as much as the others. It wasn’t until two years ago when I said to myself, ‘If I train less than them, I can beat them’. I finally had the confidence to listen to my body and embrace my strengths and weaknesses.
“Over the years of battling fatigue, I had gained an incredible connection to my body, one I would not have formed if I could have trained like everyone else. Whatever your limits are, work with them, not against them.”
Whether you’re looking to beat the cut-off or post a new PB, Pete’s insight will help you believe in your potential and get you on your way to Ironman glory.
