The Three Best Core Exercises For Endurance Athletes

Wednesday 27 Jul 2016 Paul Moore
There are lots of core exercises out there. Doing any of them is better than doing none of them. But some are definitely better for runners than others. A strong core — that is, strong abdominal and low-back muscles — enhances running performance and may reduce injury risk. The best core exercises for runners are those that mimic the specific ways the core muscles are required to work during running. Here are three moves that do just that. Supine March Why it’s good for runners: Core stability begins with the transverse abdominis, a deep abdominal muscle that needs to hold the right amount of tension to prevent excessive movement of the pelvis and lumbar spine during running. The greatest challenge this muscle faces in running is maintaining appropriate tension while the legs move freely and alternately. The Supine March is a great exercise for runners because it administers that very challenge in a controlled way. How to do it: Lie face up in the floor with both knees sharply bent and...

Alcohol And Triathlon: The Facts

Wednesday 27 Jul 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Delly Carr / Triathlon.orgA lot of triathletes have a love-hate relationship with alcohol. We love to drink it, but hate what it does to both our bodies and training potential. But what is the truth about alcohol and should you be wary of it? Photo: Delly Carr / Triathlon.org Q: What are your guidelines for drinking alcohol? A: Research shows that in moderation, alcohol, particularly red wine, does carry some health benefits (in wine, it’s heart-healthy antioxidants). Formal recommendations for consumption are one drink per day for women and two for men, but it’s important to remember that everyone metabolizes and tolerates alcohol differently. Click on the tabs on the left for some other common alcohol-related queries I hear from triathletes. Q: Will it make me fat? A: Alcohol is relatively high in calories (7 calories per gram in pure alcohol). For the athlete looking to trim body fat, cutting out alcohol is perhaps the easiest way to achieve desired results on the scale....

Expectations, Integrity, & Necessity

Wednesday 29 Jun 2016 Admin
20151012_153819_resized I often find when I’m struggling to digest my feelings after a race, it’s best to write and just be honest; with myself and with the world of my friends, family and fellow tri-people. It seems in this world we live in, we love to broadcast of all the great; social media allows us to put out the persona we choose, to make our life look to be ‘something’ that it may or may not be. But we often post what is appealing, positive, and feel-good inducing. I tend to prefer to talk to people personally, and I like to communicate what is “real” as much as possible. I went into Coeur d’Alene 70.3 somewhat haphazard; not in my lack of wanting to perform well, but in my preparations. Some of this was due to extenuating circumstances, but some by choice. I took a good rest after Ironman Texas which was needed. I got back into training but did so in a relaxed manner, still dealing with some foot pain. At times I opted to ride with friends rather than hammer alone for hours on end. It was fun. We...

Mont Tremblant 70.3 2016

Thursday 30 Jun 2016 Lsanderstri
Swim Start Mont Tremblant holds a special place in my heart. This is where I started to truly believe that I could compete with the best in the world, after finishing fourth at the 70.3 World Championships behind Javier Gomez, Jan Frodeno and Tim Don. It also happens to be where Erin did her first Ironman, and where my mom did her first full Ironman (after finishing the swim cancelled Ironman Florida in 2014). My mom, Erin and myself were all competing again this year in the 70.3, so it was sure to be a memorable experience. I put in four solid training blocks after St. George. My training blocks look like this: Day 1: Hard Day 2: Easy Day 3: Hard Day 4: Easy with long run Day 5: Brick Day 6: Easy with long bike Day 7: Hard Day 8: Active recovery Day 9: Off Day 10: Active recovery I will say, I did not give the active recovery days enough respect after the first two blocks. I went to bed late, woke up early, and did not hydrate / replenish nutrients adequately. By the third block I was feeling...

A pregnant pause

Tuesday 24 May 2016 Admin
22 week bump It’s safe to say that life has changed quite a lot since my last blog. My last update came in January fresh from my return from Chile and the Cayman Island: two half ironman in two weeks and I was setting out my race plans for 2016. Soon after coming home to Boulder we learnt I was pregnant! Big news for us! Big excitement! And, big changes ahead! It’s taken me a while to write an update about pregnancy life and that’s for a few reasons. Early on we wanted to keep things quiet. I found the first trimester to be a….I think confusing is the right word…time. We were massively excited and felt great joy seeing the positive pregnancy result, seeing our baby on the scan, hearing the heart beat but that excitement was coupled with a nervousness. During the first trimester the risk of miscarriage is at it’s highest and I felt like I was balancing a desire to plan and imagine the adventures ahead whilst at the same time feeling a certain reserve to not let myself get too far ahead of myself....
