TT097: 100 Mile Run, Addicted To Intensity, How the Apple Watch Changed My Life

Hillary Spires returns to the show to talk about her preparation for a 100 mile/160km run she completed in Canada in September.  She gave herself a 24 hour time limit and she talks about Going for 100 miles in 24 hoursthe challenges she endured along the way and during the run.  She limited her total training and used intensity to maximize her training time.  Along the way she raised $11,000 for charity.

After Hillary’s interview I talk about how the Apple Watch changed my life for the better.

TT064: Ironman Canada 2015 With Hilary Spires

First year triathlete Hilary Spires returns for an update on her first season.

Her first triathlon was early in 2015, then she did a 70.3 on June 14, and Ironman Canada July 26.  She was very well prepared. Her original goal was to break 14 hours, then she changed it do breaking 13 hours.  It was cold at Iromman Canada and she had to wear a garbage bag early in the bike to warmup up.  She liked the first year so much that she is signed up for Ironman Canada in 2016.  Did she make her 13 hour goal?  Have a listen to find out.

Check our her first appearance on the show in episode 53.
