Heat Acclimatization is a fun topic I personally follow quite a bit. This piece of literature is a good add-on to Ryan's great coach's week presentation on the topic.
This is the Iron Cowboy, James Lawrence. I found myself redefining my impossible 5 years ago when I accomplished the 50 50 50 (50 full distance triathlons in 50 states in 50 days). I want to offer you the same opportunity to redefine your impossible. No I am not sending you to all 50 states but I have put together, with my team, an amazing race. We call this the UTAH’S TOUGHEST - AN EXTREME TRIATHLON. It takes place in my home state of UTAH. It will be held August 1, 2020. We are offering a crazy hard full distance race, a just as difficult half distance race, and an equally difficult olympic distance race. These races will push yourself to some limits you may not have faced before. To find out more about the UTAH’S TOUGHEST RACE head over to the race site and get your self signed up.THERE IS NOT TIME LIKE NOW TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE TRULY CAPABLE OF!
