David McNamee’s lockdown tri advice

The UK lockdown has been tough enough but mentally and physically but, until recently, the ultra-strict lockdown in Spain has witnessed all outdoor exercise banned and only ventures to the supermarket allowed.


One such triathlete experiencing the Spanish lockdown was the Girona-based top pro David McNamee, Britain’s highest-placed male in Ironman World Championship history and a man with one of the fastest long-course run legs in triathlon.

With that running gait unlikely to be seen on the race course at least until September, the Scot has been improvising from his city centre balcony, including doing an improvised 10km after his first virtual Ironman experience.
