Your weekly fix in all things Ironman!
 

This week is another interview packed show for you! There's one about heart health, then we have one about strength training for endurance athletes, and then we finish up with a Legends interview with Valeria Silk (the original race director in Kona). 

Interview: We have the author of The Haywire Heart, Chris Case on the show. He talks to us about his book and how doing to much exercise can be bad for the heart and what we need to do to protect it. Find out more about the book by clicking here

Interview: Kriss Hendy is a top strength and conditioning coach who focuses on Endurance Sport. He runs www.strengthforendurance.com which is a great resource for your strength training. Kriss talks about the importance of strength training, how to fit it into your training week and year, and what you need to think about when you are doing it to make sure it's effective and safe.  

Interview: Our last interview is with Valerie Silk. Valerie Silk was known as the mother of the Hawaii Ironman. When John Collins departed Hawaii Valerie took over the race as the race director. For ten years she grew the race from a very small event into an event that was known world wide. In this months Legends of Triathlon podcast Valerie shares many of the stories from her years at the Ironman World Championships. This is a great interview.
