Holly Lawrence was the 2016 Ironman 70.3 World Champion, who continued her winning streak in 2017 with 6 more back to back wins over the 70.3 distance. A sore foot during the 2018 Oceanside race turned out to be a broken bone , which put her out for the whole rest of the year. She recently made her comeback, winning 70.3 in Dubai and Bahrain - the latter race being the first piece of the $1 million trifecta, if she can win the World Champs and Dubai again this year. She talks honestly about the mental challenges of dealing with 16 weeks in a cast while her foot healed, and reveals some of the lengths she went to to try to keep training - including swimming with her cast wrapped in plastic! She reveals how injury has been a great teacher for her, and how she’s prioritising more than ever the importance of down time, rest and recovery. Moreover, the time spent reflecting and worrying that her career might even be over has led her to approach this ‘second chance’ with a much lighter heart, and a focus on enjoying every minute. This conversation is really fun, and Holly’s love of training, and life in general, really come through!
