Athlete : Patricio Vasquez - Chile
IRONMAN 70.3 ATHLETE
I'm Patricio from Chile, and I've been doing triathlon for almost 10 years already, but never really worked with a personal coach. Most of my training was basically going out for rides or runs, without any specific goal. So I met Phil with the "Ironman Coach Matching" program, and after talking to a few coaches from different places, I decided starting training with Phil.
When we started working together I had just finished my second Full IM in Cozumel, and was about to race in Pucon 70.3, so we really didn't have much time to work. But after IRONMAN Pucon 70.3 I had another 70.3 race 2 months away in Buenos Aires. So Phil prepared me a "fast track" plan, that worked very well: I finished with my personal best in the distance 70.3, and improved 10 minutes from last year same race.
So I am very happy with Phil's coaching. He makes my workouts more enjoyable and with specific objectives, making me improving every week and keeping me motivated. We just started working for Challenge Roth in July, and I have great confidence that with his support I will make a great race.
