We bring in multiple Ironman winner Laura Siddall to chat with Helen this week, all about the mental ups and downs of Ironman training and racing. Helen competed at Lakesman 2021, a long distance triathlon in England's picturesque Lake District. We find out about the many many wobbles along the way, how Helen prepared mentally for race day and how it all panned out.
About why Helen decided to do Lakesman and when she changed from the half to the full distance event.
