Kilian Jornet Interview: Talks about why using a coach is beneficial


Kilian Jornet started working with two coaches and training for SkiMo Racing when he was 13 years old. One coach was providing training plans each month and the other coach was conducting technical trainings e.g. how to stride and glide, avalanche courses and general mountain skills. From 13 to 17 years of age Kilian was really focused on this kind of structured training. He describes himself as being obsessed with training. He would frequently run 25k to and then back from school or he would cycle 60k to find snow and then do his skimo training for 2 hours. He considered these hours as “transportation” and not as training. In the interview he tells Steve House how and why he was able to manage this training volume.
