Don graduated at the top of his batch with a degree in Computer Engineering from the Ateneo de Manila University. He was pursuing a career in academe as a college professor for the same university before he decided to follow his passion: triathlon. Don was initially drawn to the sport because of the challenges it presented. Instead of being fazed by his lack of athleticism and experience, he used a smart and analytical approach in training. This helped him progress rapidly and he quickly turned into one of the fastest triathletes in the Philippines.

Since 2010, he has racked up close to 50 podium finishes and continues to be one of the top age group triathletes in the Philippines.  He has done 3 full Ironman distance races (Ironman Korea and Bohol Timex 226) and more than 8 halfIronman distance races. He also holds remarkable records such as the fastest run splits for all 20 km Whiterock Triathlon run courses. He finished both versions in 1hr 50 for 2010 and 1hr 26 for 2012, earning him the title of being one of the  fastest athletes in the Philippine triathlon scene.

With years of extensive experience in training and racing, Don holds the value of science and analysis in high regard and uses it as a means to enhance one’s athletic performance.  Through data analysis and a very scientific approach in training, he aspires to help each athlete reach their full potential and even exceed their goals. With this in mind, Coach Don Velasco currently offers services such as blood lactate testing, sweat analysis, respiratory gas analysis, form and gait analysis, and dynamic bike fitting.

As a result of the tie-up between SimS and FlyingDonV Coaching, Blood Lactate Threshold Testing will now be conducted by Coach Don Velasco in SImS. Lactatetesting is a powerful and reliable predictor of performance and endurance fitness used by top triathletes around the world.

Knowing one’s ‘Lactate Curve’ can help improve an athlete’s performance by letting him/her know the following:

  • His/her red line and current level of fitness
  • Specific training intensities/zones
  • Underdeveloped areas
  • Types of training one would needs to focus on
  • Potential race times and race strategies.
