We caught up with Ben Greenfield in Kona shortly after he finished speaking at the Sports Medicine conference. In addition to the speaking engagement, which you’ll be able to hear at on the premium channel, Ben recently had the opportunity to accept a slot into this year’s Ironman World Championships and accepted!

So in this show we pick Ben’s brain on:

  • How you can prepare for a major endurance event with 4-6 weeks notice
  • What he’ll do last minute to prep for an Ironman Hawaii (he only had two weeks notice)
  • His detailed nutrition plan for Kona this year including a honey/chia/coconut water hydration concoction he’ll use
  • Expectations for the race
  • and more!
