Today's episode topic is about what data you need to stick to on race day. Because whatever distance you’re doing, whether it’s a Sprint, Olympic, 70.3 or full Ironman distance triathlon, each race requires its own pacing strategy

If you want to get the most out of yourself in your race, you need to understand what your pace capability you are able to hold as an athlete at each distance.

This is one of the most forgotten yet important parts of having a good race!
