I hear people say in Ironman, don’t worry about the minor details, you’re out there all day and a few seconds or minutes won’t make a difference… But what if you were to finish in 10:00:01…? Or worse, what if you came across the line in 17:00:10…? Or what if the guy or gal that is crossing the line as you enter the finish shoot gets a spot to Kona and they’re in your age-group, and you don’t get to go… Every second could count, and to ignore seconds or minutes, particularly seconds or minutes that you can gain for minimal cost in either energy, time or money, is a mistake. You put in the time and effort; you want the best possible result! This regular section will be about how to go faster for free (or near to free). I’ll discuss tips and strategies to shave potentially valuable seconds and minutes off your Ironman finish time without burning any extra energy or spending a stack of cash… Two types of free that I appreciate!
