We’ve interviewed 6x Ironman World Champion Dave Scott a few times, and here are a few tips he has given us.
Aside from hearing about how he raced the school bus on his 3-speed bike as a kid, how he ate 8.5lbs (3.9kg) of ice cream in one sitting, and that as a child he had a “deranged psyche” we find out his main Ironman hacks.
Three of Dave’s hacks are:
- Have a mental roadmap of the race – false flats, windy sections, swim turns, landmarks.
- Always have a physical inventory of what your body is doing at all times. Relax parts of your body systematically to create calmness.
- Don’t overthink niggling problems, and keep your mind in the moment; stay present.
