Today’s podcast guest is Dr Dan Plews. Dan is one of our most frequent and popular guests. He and ‘The Prof' Paul Laursen have an on going competition to be at the top of the list with most appearances on the show.

It’s been a while since I chatted with Dan and since the last conversation he’s made a welcome and very successful return to racing, having crossed the line first overall at the 2022 IM New Zealand, and then getting a personal best of 8:18 at Challenge Roth despite a troublesome Achilles. Our chat today is centred around Dan’s successful goal to race a ‘fast’ Ironman. At Ironman California in October last year he again crossed the line first and posted a 7:56. Dan has a lot going on in his life - a young family, research projects, coaching a group of elite Ironman triathletes, working with the New Zealand Olympic kayak team, and his EndureIQ online education programme. There's a lot to unpick when it comes to how he made this sub-8 happen, including:

  • Finding balance, and why commitment to a goal means saying NO
  • Back to back training for time management
  • How you can always find marginal gains
  • The role of carbs in triathlon performance and why the LCHF approach works for him
  • A huge surprise as Dan declares his new found love for strength training
Dan is right up there with some of the smartest (and down to earth) people I know so I hope you enjoy the show! To find out more about Dan please visit these social media channels Dan’s personal Instagram - theplews Dan’s business Instagram - endure_iq Please check out the new Endure_IQ course on strength & power training for triathletes - In the podcast, Dan talks about fuelling his Ironman races on just 50g of carbs/hour and why he doesn’t believe that 120g/hr makes sense. He explains more in this blog post: 120g/hour - deciphering the carbolution craze Also in the conversation Dan mentioned that his goal to race a ‘fast’ Ironman was inspired by reading this book: Die with Zero - Bill Perkins
