Dave Daffey finishing Port

David Daffey is a certified triathlon coach with Triathlon Australia (Club and Community Level) as well as a Health Coach who concentrates on unprocessed nutrient dense foods to heal and fuel the body and mind. Find out how he did an 11 hour fat adapted Ironman.

I started coaching for Moore Performance… after my 2012 Port Macquarie Half Iron Man (October 2012).

I like coaching because … I love seeing people progress from point A to B and hopefully beyond!

My favourite training motivational quote is …. pain is only temporary, quitting is not an option.

My training approach is … inspired by Dr Maffetone’s training philosophy to life and endurance training.

My ironman stats are … 14 Half Iron Mans (maybe more) and 3 Full Iron Man triathlons.

My favourite ride/run is … any ride involving a sunrise and where I don’t come off the bike.  I just love running and especially MAF (Maffetone runs) where my heart rate is relatively low.

My next goal race is … Busselton Ironman in December 2017.

My favourite pre race meal is … currently bacon, vegetable and egg cups with some seed crackers and avocado.

My favourite post race meal is …. a vegetable omelette with cheddar cheese and some homemade chocolate.  I actually sat with John Hill in the recovery tent in my last Ironman chatting whilst drinking some pumpkin soup. That worked well.  Even Hilly liked it!

I’m fanatical about  … nutrition and even did an 18 month experiment with respect to it for my last Ironman in May 2017.
