Garmin associate preps for the race of his life: Ironman St. George


000_0019Bently will be driving from KC with a friend and he’s looking forward to seeing the course, which he’s heard is gorgeous. The photos on the race site will take your breath away … and that’s exactly what the mountainous bike and run course could do for an ill-trained athlete. Not Bently. He has used his Forerunner 310XT and Garmin Connect to focus his training and make the most of the natural resources here in Kansas City. Bently said there are two ways to train for a bike course with mountain stages: Train in the mountains or ride into the wind. Kansas has plenty of wind, so I am in luck. The first 50 miles of this bike ride was into a 20-27 mph wind. The last 50 were mostly with the wind, so that made for a good pace. See my ride in Garmin Connect.

Bently also explained how he employed some creative courses for his run training: How do you train for a hilly marathon course when you only have one hill? Repeats! I found the biggest hill in Kansas City and ran over and back six times for a 20-mile day. See my run in Garmin Connect.
