62 – IRONMAN© 70.3 Eagleman – Ed Shifflett

I begin my IRONMAN 70.3 Eagleman series with my dear friend Ed Shifflett.  Ed shares a great amount of knowledge and brings a ton of experience to the table.  He’s being coached by Lisa Colvin and we dive into how this works for his life, work, training, being a father, and husband balance.  We talk about how using metrics such as power, heartrate, and perceived effort are all important.  While he couldn’t control everything leading up into this race, he managed to drive, sleep, eat, and get the bike checked all while going to a wedding the day prior with his daughter.  Thank you Ed for sharing your knowledge and good luck at IRONMAN© Maryland.
