Rockstar Triathlete Brett Logan: Surpassing The Gap to Live in The Gain
It took me a while to get Brett to really see how far he has come back in so little time.
I like to help my athletes focus on the gain, not the gap, and that can be hard to do if the gap is where most of us are all the time.
Brett’s gains have been many: Losing weight, getting stronger by overcoming injury, and learning how to actually train for a triathlon with specific parameters like power, rpms, video analysis, and testing- His results speak for themselves. I am super proud of you, Brett, and we are just getting started. You are an inspirational Rockstar Triathlete!
About The Athlete
What is your age?
What is your profession?:
Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
I was getting back into tri after a nearly 10 year hiatus and was looking for a mix of in-person local group training and online coaching. I spoke with most of the local Miami tri clubs and Erinne’s experience and approach stood out. It turned out that my original tri coach was one of her students.
What is/ was your “A” race for this season?
Key West intl distance.
What are your BIG goals?
My biggest goal is to make triathlon a long term and sustainable part of my life, also looking to do my first 70.3 in 2024.
Tell me about your successes so far! What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for each of the following? Swim, Bike, Run, and Nutrition/Health.
With just a few tips and some warm up advice I had a swim PR on my first race back.
I was as surprised as anyone given my fitness level was still very much a work in progress at that point. I have since improved upon that PR twice in the ensuing six months with a deeper dive into form and technique.
I am also far more efficient in the water, not expending as much energy on the swim and entering T1 with a lower heart rate.
My functional threshold power on the bike improved by 29 watts in six months. My one-mile run test improved by 3 minutes and 30 seconds, which was very near a decade-old PR time.
Starting out, I fully believed approaching those old run times would take far longer than six months, but it is happening much more quickly.
Probably the best thing that has happened to me since joining Full Circle is that we solved a problem that has plagued me both within Tri and in everyday life. I didn’t know that sweat rates and salinity rates within that sweat could vary dramatically from person to person. It turns out I have a heavy sweat rate and I am a salty sweater. Two things that often go together. One of the Full Circle coaches picked up on the issue during a workout and consequently we adjusted my electrolyte intake and it has made all the difference.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
- Arriving at the mental mindframe that tri is a lifestyle and making the adjustments to incorporate it on a long term basis.
- Finally solving my electrolyte issue.
What excites you the most about being involved in running/triathlon?
Everything from forcing me to be better organized, to stress relief and more focus and stamina for work and family.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
Do it. There is something for everyone. If you are looking to get back in amazing shape and participate in local races or if you want to compete at the highest level the sport offers there are people doing it here.
