#259 - Focus, Fueling, and Recovery

Crushing Iron Triathlon Podcast

Release Date: 04/15/2019

You're done when you choose to be done. The difference between elite athletes winning or losing comes down to the little things. Often those "little things" are ignored by age group athletes, but we believe they were the difference for Tiger Woods winning The Masters. Today we talk about focus, fueling, and recovery and how they add up to feeling good and better racing.
