John Willis came to me late 2019 to coach him and help him prepare for Ironman Barcelona in October 2020. Training was going amazing and when the pandemic hit John had to defer his entry to 2021 and then again to 2022. During the last 3 years John has stuck to his training. We basically moved away from Ironman training for most of this and it was just a matter of maintaining fitness and working on limiters and learning to train properly. We then moved back to Ironman prep 20 weeks out from the race.
Last Sunday John completed Ironman Barcelona and smashed his PB into the bargain. John has now set his sights on Ironman Italy in 2023. Watch this space!
