2 Chuy Amaya - Decoding the Deca Ultra Triathlon

2 Chuy Amaya - Decoding the Deca Ultra Triathlon

The Mindset and Motivation of The Ultra Distance Endurance Athlete


My guest this week is Chuy Amaya from Austin, Texas. By all standards, Chuy is a normal guy. He's 32-years-old, works a full-time job, has his Masters Degree, etc. 

What sets him apart? It isn't just the fact that Chuy is an ultra-endurance fanatic. His favorite event? Well, he's currently training for the Deca Ironman in Mexico taking place this October. 

Yep. That's right. A full Iron-distance race (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) for 10 days in a row. 

What possesses someone to do this? How does he train? What advice does he share for others who want to dip their toe in the Ultra Distance world? 

All this and more on this episode of the "I Could Never Do That" podcast.
