Chris podiums..!

On his way to his first Ironman next year, ONEraceTEAM's Chris Wilson scored his first podium, with a 3rd overall place (1st, 30-34 age-group) at the Australian MurrayMan last month.

Like many of the age-group athletes in ONEraceTEAM managing training and a busy working life can be a tough challenge.

"Working full time and studying for my professional accountancy qualification means I'm pretty time poor. I simply wouldn't have the time or knowledge to invest in putting together a robust plan like Toby prepares for me.

"I have a tendency to over think problems with training, especially if I have missed a session. Toby is a calming influence on me and seems to always know the right thing to say to bring me back down to earth! This whole experience would have been much more stressful without him!"

Proving that coaching is truly a global business, Chris lives and works in Melbourne as a Management Accountant.

"Being in Australia, we're obviously on the other side of the world from each other, so communicating face to face can be difficult. Skype sessions really help with this and make the coaching relationship much more practical.

"Using Training Peaks is a brilliant aid as well. Toby can set up a period of my training and I can keep up to date online or through their mobile app.

"These bits of technology have really helped maintain the communication between Toby and myself and give me everything I need to be able to train consistently week in week out."

As he continues his preparation for Ironman Melbourne next year, Chris's next test is Canberra 70.3.
