In this episode we hear from Doug Broughton. Doug recently completed his 1st full distance race at Ironman Tulsa last month. Doug shared that he and his wife celebrated their 22nd Wedding Anniversary 2 days before the race.
Doug lives in the Southern part of Wisconsin and when not working from home commutes to Chicago, Illinois. He shared that he has several jobs that he is balancing along with Ironman training. Because Wisconsin is still relatively cold this time of year, I ask Doug how that impacted his training.
Doug gives us an overview of his experience and causally reveals that Ironman Tulsa was his very 1st triathlon of any distance. We discuss the idea of the “ideal” weight and I offer to diagnose the listeners’ aches and pains.
Because Doug had described himself as a “cheapskate” I ask his how the conversation went with his wife regarding the Ironman registration fees. After giving Doug a hard time about his digital footprint, we get into conversation about his training plan. Doug followed the 6-month plan that I available on the Ironman website. We go into detail about his long training sessions and Doug is honest about 1 component of training he would do different.
We get into breaking down Doug’s race and the Ironman Tulsa venue. Doug shares some does, and some don’t as we learn how his day went. But in the end, Doug shows that with perseverance and determination he can overcome anything that is thrown his way.
