In this episode:

As luck would have it, I had the opportunity to interview my coach, Jon Noland. (Yes, coaches have coaches.  Confucius says "Those who coach themselves, have a fool for a coach.")  

This episode gives a different view of training and racing as Jon has been an elite athlete for a long time.  He talks about the differences between how he trained and raced pre & post entering into the Masters and 40-44 Age Group.  He also enlightens on some methodical ideas on training and racing as well.  

Our conversation covers -

  • Jon's start in road racing and triathlon
  • Early training and racing
  • Injuries
  • Getting older
  • Training and racing after 40
  • The physical and mental obstacles to endurance sports
  • Advice to those just starting in Endurance Sports
  • His favorite tools
  • Ways to follow and contact Jon

I hope you are all as honored as I was to hear about his journey to the elite corrals and what it took to get him there and his ways to stay there.  I learned a lot more about my coach during this interview and I know it will bring some value to your journey as well.
