I’m back on deck at TS HQ.
As you know I took the family away for a week to Agnes Waters (1770), which is about 5h north of the Sunny Coast. There is not much there which was absolutely perfect and I got to build sand castles which Mack promptly destroyed with his plastic truck
It was a much needed ReSet which I’m going to write about this week as I have some important life lessons to impart
So this was the first time I have been offline in a long time and I was dreading the amount of emails awaiting me. Yes there were lots but many put a smile on my face and especially some from athletes who raced at Ironman Port Macquarie using my TS Ironman Blueprint.
I was already stoked with TS pro athlete Luke Whitmore coming third overall. You should read his inspiring blog (and see the ‘secret’ to getting good).
but then there was the likes of Narelle McCelland who came second in her age group and got her ticket to the big show “It was an awesome experience and I came 2nd in my age group and have qualified to compete at Kona in October. I never dreamt that I would get the opportunity to compete at Kona. I am very excited. This has been a result of the quality of your training material. Thank you so much it really does work! I completed your 20 week program and didnt miss a day! No injuries or illness!!”
Then there was Brett Gordon who only got my plan 10 weeks out and said it totally changed the way he was training. Better still he swam 9 mins quicker than last year, rode 33mins quicker (got off the bike feeling fresh thanks to the unconventional big gear approach) and ran 20min faster than last year for a whopping 1h and 3min PB. “Stoked with that, but also know I can go faster.”
And here’s another and I must say I love getting emails from Justin Farley – each time he sends me an email its about him setting new personal bests. Justin just follows the advice given and has asked some great questions and with time, patience, discipline and focus he is reaping the rewards. His goal was a 9:58 in Port .. He went 10:02 which was almost 30mins faster than his first IM at IMWA (Busso) in Dec 2012. Justin pretty much nailed all his targets and got oh so close to breaking 10 .. but that’s just a matter of when now and not if.
“Once again thanks for all the help and advice – I wouldn’t got close to this time after only training for just over 1 year if not for your program and all the associated info.”
What did these 3 athletes have in common? They followed the plan and associated advice to the tee and they have reaped the rewards. You can have this success too I can’t guarantee it of course because you actually have to “do the work” and tune out the noise and as importantly roll with the enivatable punches.
I’m not going to lie to you. IM can be a cruel sport. You can be in the best shape of your life and it all still go wrong but it’s all about being proactive when that happens and not reactive. There are no major successes without some ‘failures’ along the way.
Ask any successful person in any field and they will tell you this is true.
So the question is.. what would it mean to you to set big Ironman PB’s or get to Kona?
I have a couple of options which if you do the work and follow the advice will give you a crazily high chance of setting huge PB’s and even nabbing a spot to Kona the holy grail of our sport.
Get my TS Ironman Blueprint for a measly $197 – it’s peanuts and as one TS IM Blueprint holder Brian Millet (who won his AG in Busso and was 4th in IM Melbourne recently) told me over the phone recently that it was worth at least $1000. I couldn’t agree more.
or apply for coaching and we will set up a strategy call where we will dive into how your training has been going, your results and see what needs to be done to take that next step and importantly see if we would be a good fit. I don’t take every athlete on board.
