Any updates? :-)
Love this idea- go Steve!!
I can’t swim and can’t remember last time I ran but this makes me think about doing a full Ironman… which course is the easiest?
Love these videos and very excited to follow along but would be brilliant to see this "Zero to Hero" style video featuring a female athlete 😁 The three guys so far have been really great but some variety would be much appreciated!
I can’t believe that you are doing this! I am 50 as well and pretty much wanting to do the same thing. Good luck Steve! I will be watching this series for sure!
Better start saving up!
Yes Steve! Hope to see you out on the roads.
Great challenge and looking forward to following this series. Is Steve on Strava to follow too?
Is Steve on Strava? Insta?
"your shot at maybe trying to qualify for the academy". So you're telling me there's a chance...
Such a good feature GTN, and good on you Steve! This not only makes for interesting viewing, but is also incredibly helpful for a fellow age grouper with new ambitions of getting back to mediocre from incredibly slow and unfit! I'll definitely be following this journey.
You got this Steve!!! I also went from zero (6-7 years no exercise) to a sprint and Olympic! Aiming for my first half iron May next year 😁 slow and steady!
Is it alright to feel burnt out from training? I’m two weeks out from my first tri and I feel tired, and bored of my training even if I change my routine. It feels like I’m not improving but my time, endurance and strength are getting better. I’m excited of the event but I’m a little bit bored of the training currently.
Looking forward to this series. Personally I'd kill for an academy or scheule like this to follow. I do think its important to be clear on the fact he is not a true beginner. He has prior experience and access to a lot of material.
This is great to see. I love watching the life and training of pros, but this is great coz we see how someone stars out in triathlon like this. Will there be episodes following him through the year all the way to Kona??
It’s never been easier to qualify now. Double the slots. And if your a lady than you’re really a good chance! Slots galore. Kona is now more of a race for who can afford to go over who is the fastest
Good luck Steve. I'm with you on the "bolt on" nature of the run. 3 seasons of racing tri now and I'm still trying to figure out how to run.
Definitely following this!
