It takes time to become good. We had Ironman 70.3 Vietnam earlier in May, the best results came from athletes who managed to keep on training during Covid, many of them were taking part in our race simulations and training camps during Covid, improving their race day skills and fitness. The result in Vietnam comes from years of consistent training. One can surely get ready for a race in a few months, enjoy the experience and finish the event, but real improvements will come from years of hard work.
The next months will be busy with our own events, athletes training for the ironman 70.3 World Champs, and the calendar for the 2nd semester is also starting to grow, I’m adding a compiled list below
Enjoy your training, Vinnie Santana ironguides Head Coach
