36 - IRONMAN© Texas - Joe Adriaens

In this episode of the Pursuit of the Perfect Race, I talk with my friend Joe Adriaens.  Joe is a proud member of Every Man Jack.  He talks about his training going into the race coming off of Ironman Florida last year.  There was a call from Ironman that changed how he approached this race completely.  He enjoyed this race, but the training in Minnesota in the winter and some tactics he used to get used to the weather for a normally hot race.  He goes over his nutrition plan and how he uses a smart strategy to make it easier on himself to make less decisions as time progresses without sacrificing the quality of the nutrition or his mental capacity.
