Preparing for the upcoming Ötillö Swimrun World Championships, my race partner and Ultraman Rich Roll and I did some training up in Lake Tahoe. Afterwards, we sat down and had a state-of-the-union on our race preparation.
Specific subjects discussed include:
- the impact of altitude training & training camps
- the benefits of accountability partners
- the primacy of patience for maximum success in sport
- the perils of overtraining
- the importance of injury prevention
