ATC 353: Nausea at the Finish (Outside-The-Box Remedies), Combining #Marathon Training and #Yoga, #Nutrition and Training For Multi-Day #Bikepacking, and More! ow.ly/tABX50OBUsZ @SkratchLabs
EP’s on a quest to highlight the stories of everyday endurance athletes. In this athlete spotlight we’re joined by Ahmad Fahmy, a 35-year-old father and husband residing in London. Ahmad got into endurance sports in 2008 back when he had no idea how to even swim, and has since completed multiple Ironmans, ultra races and much more.
On this show Ahmad shares how he got into endurance sport, his inspirations, plus:
-how he learned how to swim with zero background and what system worked for him to shave 35 minutes off his IM swim
-going sub-12 at Ironman Austria
-a DNF at Ultraman UK and how he’s planning redemption this year
-the benefits of hiring a coach
-his thoughts on buying fancy equipment
-how he’s still just an “everyday” guy who likes ice cream
Tawnee, great interview with Ahmad! I love the idea of speaking to regular Joe endurance athletes! Keep up the great work.
This guy is great! What an inspiration!
