Coach Jimmy applies the same dedication and thoughtfulness to your training plan that he applied to his own training plan during his 20 years as one of the world’s top professional triathletes. Balance was a key to Coach Jimmy’s long term success and now, as a husband and father of two children, you can be sure that your program will integrate your specific needs – whether you’re a competitive triathlete or first timer.
If you’re an IRONMAN distance athlete remember that even if you’re very fast, you’re in for a long day. Heavily consider comfort when making decisions about your equipment and bike position. You’re swimming 2.4 miles, riding 112 miles, and running 26.2 miles, after all. Maybe the extra time it takes to put on socks will be worth it. Maybe sacrificing aerodynamics in favor of a more comfortable fit is worth consideration. For most of us - within reason - the more comfortable you are, the more likely you are to get around the course in the shortest amount of time.
