How To Salvage A Bad Workout

Tuesday 03 May 2016 Triathlete.com
Whether you are not able to hit your paces, you have stomach distress and have to make unexpected bathroom stops, or the air is heavy with smoke from a massive forest fire, there are many reasons for a workout not to go as planned. Ideally, in situations like these, you can consult your coach for feedback on how to proceed, but that’s not always possible. Maybe you don’t have a coach or your coach is not readily available at that exact moment. What do you do? No Failed Workouts First off, I don’t believe there is any such thing as a failed workout. Your session may not go as you expected, but there is always something to be learned from these situations if you are willing to listen. These ‘bad’ workouts are actually the keys to improvement. They can let you know if you’ve pushed too hard or if there is something missing from your training. If every workout goes perfectly, you are most likely not challenging yourself enough to stimulate adaptation. On the other hand, if you never have...

Food is Medicine

Wednesday 04 May 2016 Jaimie Jacobs
Food is something that our household LOVES, even more than food we LOVE to feel fighting fit, happy and with energy to spare. So refined sugar is out, and anything nutritious, tasty and that feels good is in! This yummy creation of mine is a happy marriage of protein, healthy fats, refined sugar free, dairy free, and wheat free but most importantly it is quick to prepare and it’s texture/taste will leave you smiling and sufficiently full:) Banana Coconut Bread 2 mashed Bananas 2 Eggs beaten 1 cup Almond Meal 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil ½ cup shredded Coconut ½ cup 100% Maple Syrup ¼ cup Coconut Flour 1 tsp Baking Powder 1 Tbs Cinnamon round ½ cup dried Prunes thinly sliced   Method *Preheat oven to 180 degrees. *Mix all wet ingrediants into a bowl (bananas, eggs, olive oil, maple syrup). *Sift in almond meal, baking powder, coconut flour, cinnamon, shredded coconut. *Pour into a greased or lined baking paper cake container (I use a bread container) and place prunes...

4 Years; a Lifetime Away or Just Around the Corner?

Sunday 01 May 2016 Noreply@blogger.com (Non Stanford)
The last time I laced up my racing shoes on South African soil the circumstances in some respects were the same, but on the whole, they couldn't have been more different.  First race of the season. Check.Olympic year. Check.Table mountain in the background. Check.Genuine, if not slightly unnecessary, fear of being eaten by sharks whilst dressed as a seal. Check. That's probably where the similarities end, because fortunately, the day's played out very differently. The first occasion was in February 2012. An early season Continental Cup. I was on the points chase. Not an Olympic points chase. Far from it. I just wanted enough points to maybe, just maybe, get one of those elusive World Series starts. So shiny and exciting in all their blue carpeted glory. I had two or three rather dismal attempts the season before on the big stage, most of which had ended with DNF's for one reason or another. Lapped athlete being an almost reoccurring theme. Undeterred however, I was...

Coastal Delaware Marathon race report 2017

Monday 02 May 2016 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
Since the last edition of Wongstar's winter adventures, a ton has happened during my marathon training quest. There was finally a bunch of racing. February saw two races on back-to-back weekends: The Hearts to Heroes 5k (in "feels like 5*" weather) which also served as our local Team RWB Wilmington/Newark (northern Delaware) kick-off event, and then the Glassboro 10-miler the next weekend.

Fitter Radio absolutely nail it

Sunday 01 May 2016 Tim
FitterRadio-splash2 On the back of my second place at the IM Africa Championships, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Bevan McKinnon from Fitter Radio, based out of New Zealand. As an elite level triathlete and coach, Bevan definitely knows his stuff and he asked some in-depth and probing questions. I’ve done a lot of interviews in my time – live interviews, radio interviews and even some for television, but I’ve got to say, I think this interview ranks right up there as one of the best I’ve ever done. Amongst the topics we covered were: Old-school training methodology vs New-school and how I’ve made the transition from one to the other over the last year or so. The value of data to create more efficient and effective training programs and give you a more objective idea of your fitness going into a race. The growing focus on maximising fat oxidation to create some big gains in performance. How the IM Africa Championship race unfolded. Why actually wearing your heart rate monitor during a...

2016: Let’s do this!!

Friday 22 Jan 2016 Admin
Image 1-22-16 at 9.11 AM I’ve always liked turning the page into a new year: reflecting on the year past, planning for the year ahead and even new year resolutions (don’t judge me!). I’ve just about wrapped up my racing plans for the year and my schedule is looking a bit like this: 10 Jan        Pucon 70.3  (2nd) 17 Jan        MercuryMan Triathlon (1st) 20 March   Puerto Rico 70.3 10 Apr         Palmas 70.3 7 May         St George 12 June      Escape from Alcatraz 10 July         Vineman 70.3 24 July        IM Lake Placid [World 70.3 in Oz?] 9 October    KONA The theme for the year is “just do it”. Over the past couple of years I have erred towards making the sensible, maybe conservative choices. This means I have put off heading to some of my “bucket list” races. No more delaying. This is the year to just go for it. Racing Pucon 70.3 kicked off the year on the right foot. Instead of worrying about my lack of time on the bike (average bike hours for the month < hours on skis). Thankfully, I let the “what...
