The Warm Up (Head Coach Editorial)

Dear Members,

Waking up on a monday with good news from New Zealand as Kipsan, who has been an ironguides athlete for almost 8 years, had a successful ironman debut, in 10h28, at age 50, 4th place AG, which qualified him for the World Champs in Nice. I created a five step list which helped Kipsan in such a successful first ironman so you can understand how the development of an athlete of that level works

On the group classes front, last month we saw the biggest running class since pre-covid at the reopening of the track.

See you this weekend at the Sam Roi Yot Triathlon.

Enjoy your training,
Vinnie Santana
ironguides Head Coach

Members Updates: 

Kipsan’s 5 steps for a successful Ironman Debut in New Zealand
10h28, 4th Place AG 50-54, World Championships slot

Congrats Kipsan Beck on your impressive Ironman Debut and World Championships Qualification. A quick sum up on 5 steps for this result over the past many years

  1. Develop speed and short course racing skills (“Tridash King” for many years)
  2. Transition + dominate the half ironman distance (from 2020 to 2022)
  3. Learn how to race under pressure (Ironman 70.3 World Champs 2019 in Nice, France)
  4. Train consistently Ironman training plan (~15-18h per week for final 3 months)
  5. Execute Ironman pacing + nutrition plan (New Zealand 2022)

Kipsan is on the personalized coaching programme, more info here.
