What will it take to get to qualify for Kona?

periodisationlarge

Athletes come to us all the time asking us ‘How much do I need to train to make it to Kona?’
But it is not all about the time you put in.
Yes, quality training time is important.

But some athletes are able to qualify for Kona on just 12-15 hours a week. And others spend many more hours a week and never make it there.
So what can make the difference?

It all comes down to your habits. What you do to set yourself apart.

Recently Craig sat down with Triathlon Research and went through in detail all of the critical habits he has adopted that helped make him successful.

The best way to find out if you are on the right track towards your goals – whether that is getting to Kona, or making it to the podium at your local races is to measure your habits.
