How to qualify for Kona 11 years in a row * Simon Ward and elite AG athlete Owen Martin
After a few weeks away from chatting with athletes, I have a real corker for you today. I met Owen Martin on his very first visit to Kona back in 2010 and I even recorded a conversation back then about how using a CompuTrainer had helped him achieve a lifetime goal. Now, 10 years later, Owen has just qualified for the Hawaii Ironman World Championships for the 11th year in a row. He is a model of consistency and in today’s episode Owen shares his thoughts on training, life, long term approach and a whole host of other topics. If you have any ambitions to get to Kona or if you just want to enjoy some longevity in the sport you must listen to this.
It’s another long chat but there are some great stories in here and important lessons including:
Owen is planning to do a weekly blog on Instagram about his journey to Kona 2020. You can watch his videos on Instagram at owenie53
