Rest and Recovery

The workouts you do are as good as the recover that follows. How can you get the best out of each session? If you are like every single triathlete as I see, the coach tells you to cool down and you skip the active recovery and start packing your stuff. You immediately rush to the car to put things away and then jump in the shower to head to work.  Then a couple of days or weeks later, the athlete tells the coach, “I am hurt”, “I am injured”, “I think I pulled something” or something similar. Therefore, to prevent any of these issues to occur you need to make time to stretch.

Getting ready for your long run….!

During triathlon training, especially during Ironman training, it is very important to prepare yourselves for your long day of trainings. You have to think your body as your engine aka “motor”.  During your training you have been spending time on your feet; which leads into increasing aerobic capacity by building muscles enzymes, capillaries that deliver blood to muscles and mitochondria (motor of the cell).  Read More

You are what you eat!

Many athletes assume that to get faster and stronger they need to train harder and longer. However, they look at the scale and assume just because they are training they can eat whatever they want and get fast. Sorry to break it to you… that is not going to happen. You are not DOGS… so why reward yourself with food!

You eat to train… you don’t train to eat… not just for your own training, but also in general, for LIFE. 

Therefor, it is important to be conscious on what you put in your body. What is your excuse to for not eating correctly is it, work, stress, family, relationships, exes, depression, kids, feeling lonely… stop it!!!! Stop making excuses.

Nutrition and a clean, healthy REAL FOOD (not shakes or meal replacements) diet is an integral part of overall health and for seeing results from your fitness regimen. Furthermore, it’s imperative to adapt a “diet” that is sustainable long-term and becomes natural to you and subsequently your lifestyle.

If you are willing to make the sacrifices and changes of bad habits… make it happen. Here is a resource for you: The Weight Loss Management Plan – We Personalize Nutrition For You  – from Tri Peak Athelte can help you. .

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, but of choice. Not something to wish for, but to attain.”

– William Jennings Bryan

 Limiters!!!

Most athletes train the way they want to train. By doing so, they se no improvement year by for. However,, athlete who are able to consistently improve season after season ten to train the way they need to train and challenge themselves. AKA… they listen to their Coach. 

It can be difficult of an athlete to focus on the areas that are holding him or her back because most uf us developed our strengths in our favorite training areas. However, when we have a specific training session at practice… you might not show up because it is too hard for you. Too bad, suck it up.  This could be your race limiter. Countless times I have seen athletes not improve because they are stuck in their ways… lets stop it and change it. I will see you at practice.
