The Facts about Jan Frodeno

Q: What makes you a Wahooligan?

I like to go my own way, push my limits and consequently those of the ones around me all while still being able to laugh about it all and realize that sport is the most beautiful hobby in the world.

Q: What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?

Being a solo Dad for a week while my wife was on a business trip and while I was preparing for an Ironman.

Q: What do you consider your biggest professional accomplishment to date?

It's hard choice to make in our sport between Kona and the Olympics, but I'd have to go with the Games. One shot in 4 years was pretty cool to nail.

Q: Do you have any race day rituals?

I get up 3 hours before, have a coffee and some oats, have a stretch and try not to freak out.

Q: What are three training tip you would recommend to athletes?

1. Work consistency over huge days.
2. Maximize on your time (such as indoor training). The first and last person to start/finish training did not necessarily have the best workout.
3. Train the way you plan to race.

Q: What inspires and what motivates you to keep pushing and striving for personal greatness?

The idea of being able to improve after all these years. Going to bed better than when I woke up.
