Many of have asked me, “How do you train for an Ironman?” Well, turns out- there are many methods, styles, techniques and strategies people use to train for 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run.. aka Ironman. Made in Grit podcast is a podcast discussing workout breakdowns, highs and lows of training, and Nutrition. In Season 1 of Made in Grit podcast, we will be concentrating on training schedules
