Army Ironman Tactics with Kat Matthews

Army Ironman Tactics with Kat Matthews
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Kat Matthews is serving in the British Army as a Physiotherapist Officer whilst she's supported to pursue performance as an Elite Long Distance Triathlete. Having only started triathlon in 2015, it wasn't long before she was winning races, including Ironman Florida in 2020, only her second attempt at full distance.

Clearly there is a lot to come from Kat, so I wanted to chat to her about being a full-time athlete in the Army, myths around heavy training weeks and the mental tactics she uses to achieve these incredible results.
