Adding Light to the Dark Side of Ironman

October 10, 2018

Ironman training and racing can bring with it, a dark side, and bright side. Both a beginner, and seasoned veteran, should be aware of both.  The demands of Ironman changes lives, but it is the responsibly of coach and athlete, to ensure the change is going to make the life during and after Ironman healthy. The health of the athlete should be physical, but also mentally and socially.  There will be a time, when swim/bike/run will not be part of the prescription for the day.  Hopefully, this isn’t during a training block, but it ultimately will be a prescription someday once the athlete moves on from the Ironman lifestyle.  As I navigated through my own racing career, and continue to navigate life without Ironman training in it, the bright and dark lessons learned along the way have become clear.  I move athletes through training to gain faster splits, but also pay close attention to the impact this training has on the circle of life that surrounds them.

Beta-Alanine 101 For The Endurance Athlete

October 01, 2018

For those of you that follow The Core Diet nutrition program recommended by QT2 and OutRival Racing, you know that we don’t recommend many supplements at all.  This is because most supplements simply don’t work.  Money spent on supplements is almost always better spent on good quality food products instead!  Beta Alanine is one supplement that may have enough research behind it now to show some use in endurance sports. In fact, Beta-Alanine may help support muscle capacity and lessen muscle fatigue to benefit athletic performance. The amino acid beta-alanine supports muscle function by acting as a buffer to delay the onset of muscle fatigue for durations of exercise under 5 minutes.

Strength Training: That Extra 1%

Date: October 23, 2018
Time: 07:00 PM

Strength training is not something that should be an after thought to your triathlon and run training.  This can be that little 1% extra, that can take your training and racing to the next level!  Strength is an integral part of your training, but should be periodized along with your triathlon/run training.
