You Are Ironman

BY GUEORGUI TCHEREDNITCHENKO
@ VOL 105 ON JUL 31, 2013

An Ironman triathlon is one of the hardest endurance races in the world; a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km marathon to finish. Surely, only a super-human athletes with elite endurance could possibly hope to participate in such an event? Wrong; in this presentation, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko presents the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons that he learned from it along the way.
