52 – IRONMAN© 70.3 Hawaii – Matt Vella

I continue the Hawaii 70.3 series with my friend and returning guest Matt Vella.  Matt had a change of plans recently and opted to go to Hawaii versus going to Canada for a his tune up race for IRONMAN© Louisville later this year in October.  He mentions some tactics he used to that he learned earlier this year in New Zealand to have a better day in the heat.  His coach Bek Keat, with Team Sirius Tri Club helped lay out a plan for him to have an amazing day in Hawaii.
