I am a USAT Level I Certified Triathlon Coach, a Healthy Running Certified Running Coach, a Lydiard Level II Certified Running Coach and an RRCA Certified Running Coach. I am also certified in Personal Sports Nutrition and am working toward being a certified Obstacle Course Coach as well. My clients tend to be new runners and triathletes in the over 40 age groups that are looking to finish their first endurance challenges, reach for that first podium finish, or just strive to get better. I get such a euphoric high, watching clients, and friends, cross that finish line. The smiles on their faces knowing they just conquered their goals feels so much better than crossing the finish line myself.

 

 In this episode:

As luck would have it, I had the opportunity to interview my coach, Jon Noland. (Yes, coaches have coaches.  Confucius says “Those who coach themselves, have a fool for a coach.”)

This episode gives a different view of training and racing as Jon has been an elite athlete for a long time.  He talks about the differences between how he trained and raced pre & post entering into the Masters and 40-44 Age Group.  He also enlightens on some methodical ideas on training and racing as well.

Our conversation covers –

  • Jon’s start in road racing and triathlon
  • Early training and racing
  • Injuries
  • Getting older
  • Training and racing after 40
  • The physical and mental obstacles to endurance sports
  • Advice to those just starting in Endurance Sports
  • His favorite tools
  • Ways to follow and contact Jon

 I hope you are all as honored as I was to hear about his journey to the elite corrals and what it took to get him there and his ways to stay there.  I learned a lot more about my coach during this interview and I know it will bring some value to your journey as well.
