Top Tips for Competing in an IRONMAN Competition - Bryan McCrystal
Mason Hayes & Curran-sponsored triathlete and Ireland's IRONMAN record holder, Bryan McCrystal, gives his top tips for competing in IRONMAN competitions:
Believe you belong on the start line and don't be intimidated. Trust in the work you've done and that it is enough for you to hit your targets and expectations.
Try not to focus on the clock. And by that I mean a finishing time. All sorts of factors can contribute to slow or fast times. You just focus on getting your pacing and strategy right on the day.
Have a plan and stick to it. So many times I've changed things during the race when I knew I shouldn't. I've neglected nutrition and pushed too hard on the bike. All of a sudden you haven't become a better athlete than you are. Stick to the plan.
