I have been coaching for 13 years, and each time I see an athlete cross the finish line it brings me great joy of their accomplishments. As Coach and an athlete, I could understand the inner battles that we have when we are in the battlefield of race day. Therefore, keep on the good work and fighting out those inner wars that we have within ourselves.  Keep up the good work!

CFL Tri Club Weekly Update – September 14 – 21, 2015

Shut up in There! What really goes in your head while you are running?
The difference between a good run and a crummy one begins in your brain. If you believe a workout will be tough or if you focus on feelings of boredom or fatigue, your body will follow your mind, making it more difficult to have an enjoyable outing. The good news is this mechanism works in revers, too. If you can catch yourself in the act of negative thinking, it’s possible to turn your mind – and your run – around.
Have you hear the following voices in your head:
  • The whiner: “I can’t believe how much long I have to run.” Focus on the next walk break or the next run segment. Look forward to the next tree or benchmark.
  • The Inner Lazy Man: “I’m too tired.” Try repeating positive self talk.
  • The Inner Snail: “I’m too slow.” If you don’t push yourself, you won’t get faster.
Other runners may be doing speed work and working harder than you. Use that as your inspiration. Feed off their energy and pick up the pace a bit. Literally! In other words show up to practice!

Testing
You cant improve what you don’t measure. As Triathlon is a multi-sport, you have to master three sports. Where people are often guilty of training for months on end without ever really knowing if they’re improving. This is where fitness testing comes in.
Whether you’ve trained hard or not, there’s no hiding away from the results of a fitness test. It can be a daunting prospect, because sometimes the truth hurts – but don’t let this put you off. Testing gives you the inside track on your strengths and weaknesses so that you can change your training to improve them. The results will also help you fine tune your expectations before you race, so that you can pace yourself perfectly.

I am proud of you. Your hard work has paid off!

Power Play

I always love reading an article when it explemplifiues and supports what I preach.  If you’ve ever sprinted to the finish of a 5k, you understand the importance of fast-twitch muscle fibers (even if you wouldn’t use those exact words). The power short bursts of speed, and an excellent way to develop that strength is with plyometric exercises, such as box jumps, jump squats and high skips.

Runners who tackle longer distances or who never race at all also benefit from these challenging exercises.  At the end of a long run or race, when slow-twitch muscles become fatigued, well trained fast-twitch muscles can take up the slack, allowing you to run longer. Therefore, when you’re coach tell you to do a specific exercise. Do it!

War Wounds during the Bike and Run

Ever experience thigh rubbing so painful your legs felt like they’d brushed against a coffee grinder? Or cross a finish line, realizing that you have blood streaked down your shirt and the spectators gasp? Chafing, a triathletes right of passage, is the result of friction that occurs when skin rubs against itself or clothing. As athletes, we’ve all had our share of awkward and embarrassing events where our activities have caused discomfort in awkward and embarrassing places. As many triathletes have endured and excruciating pain in your groin, due to lacking of chamois butter, especially when you shower on freshly grazed skin knows prevention is the key.

How to prevent it:

  • Ditch cotton: it absorbs sweat and stays wet. Wear synthetic, wicking fabrics.
  • Go seamless, tagless. Seams and tags on a shirt or bra can cause irritation.
  • Get a proper fit: A too snug sports bra can dig in; the excess material of a baggy shirt can rub you raw.
  • Protect your legs: Compression shorts can save your inner thighs from abrasions.
  • Cover’em up: Nipple protectionis critical for guys. NipGuards and Band-Aids are common shields.
  • Chamois: If you’re not sure how much to put on the chamois, just rub it on yourself in the areas where the chamois will touch. It’s just like putting body lotion on, you just rub it in till it disappears.

Get greasy:

Apply lubricant to chafe prone body parts.

  • Body Glide and petroleum jelly based products are classic salves. Chapstick can save you on extreme circumstances.
  • Hydrate: drinking minimizes the salt concentration of sweat. salt has sandpaper effect on skin.
  • Moisturize:  Skin that’s well moisturized – apply lotion twice daily.
