Countdown – May 22 – 28, 2023

Peak Week – Triathlon

During this week we are going to tapering into race pace efforts. It is important to be consistent with your workouts and stay focused during this week. Make sure you are resting properly and eating a balanced diet. It is important to start laying out your nutrition plan based upon the efforts asked for you in these key workouts.

You should also be getting familiar with the race course and start to visualize yourself completing it. This week will serve as the finishing touches in your preparation for the race.

The goal of this week is to stay healthy and get ready for a peak performance come race day. Make sure you are checking in with your body. Pay attention to any niggles or aches and take the necessary steps to address them.

Be sure to get plenty of rest so you can be well rested for race day. Remember that a triathlon is at least 70% mental, so keep positive visualizations going throughout this week and stay focused on the ultimate goal of crossing that finish line! Good luck!

The key workouts for this week are:

-Specific long endurance swim, bike and runs (with race pace efforts)

-Brick workout (bike to run with race pace efforts)

-Run intervals (race specific paces)

-Optional strength and/or yoga session.

Good luck in your preparations and best of luck on race day! Have fun and remember to enjoy the journey!

Dedication and self discipline

Congratulations to Michael, Justin, Alicia and Jan!

We all get very excited and motivated when we sign up for a goal or a race! However, we forget to consider the work that goes into play to make this happen. Many try to take the easy way out and don’t schedule the necessary time to dedicate to their training to make this happen. Dedication is key to making any of our goals come true.

Dedication is the commitment to stay focused and diligent in working towards our goal despite any obstacles or setbacks. It means setting the time aside from our busy schedule, no matter how small, to commit ourselves to achieve our goal. Setting a plan and timetable to follow through on this commitment is essential. Being able to follow the plan without fail will help us reach our goal in due time.

One of the major factors that come into play when talking about dedication is self-discipline. Self-discipline is having the ability to be motivated and focus on achieving your goals, no matter how hard it gets or how long it may take. It means having the power to control our impulses, focusing on setting and accomplishing goals and resisting temptations that may get in the way of achieving these goals.

Self-discipline works hand-in-hand with dedication. We have to be dedicated enough to set aside time for ourselves, even if it’s just a few minutes, to dedicate solely towards achieving our goals and sticking to the plan. With dedication and self-discipline, there is nothing that can stand in our way of reaching our goal!

So with all this being said, I encourage you to start dedicating time to your own personal development and set yourself up for success. No more excuses and let’s make it happen. Plan your meals and your schedule for the week and set your alarm! Let’s tackle this this week!

Schedule – Recovery Week

Recovery week is a very important week than any other. It allows the body to heal from any fatigue or injuries that it may have sustained during training. During recovery week, the intensity of workouts should be reduced and replaced with low-impact activities like swimming, light jogging, and stretching.

Swimming is a great way to keep muscles flexible while still maintaining an active lifestyle. Swimmers can mix up their routine by alternating between drills and laps, or even incorporate some light weights into the pool for an added challenge.

Light jogging is another effective way to give your body time to rest while still working out. The intensity should be kept low – around a six or seven on the RPE scale, with walking breaks if needed. This should be done for about 20-30 minutes, 3 times a week.

Stretching is essential for any athlete to prevent injuries and improve flexibility. It also helps to reduce muscle tension and improve blood flow. Dynamic stretching can be incorporated throughout the day – before, during, and after workouts – while static stretching should be done at least once a day for 10-15 minutes.

Recovery week is an important part of any athlete’s training plan and should not be overlooked. By reducing the intensity and switching out some exercises, athletes can give their bodies the rest they need while still staying active. Swimming, light jogging, and stretching are all great ways to accelerate your muscular adaption. So don’t forget – rest and recover, or you won’t be able to perform at your best.

Keep up the good work and let me know if you have any questions.

Holiday Savage Run – 1st Annual Event

CFL Tri Club Holiday Party – Dec 18, 2022 – 5:00 pm – 7 pm

CFL Tri Club / Tri Peak Athlete Warriors

It is time to show off your culinary streak by whipping up some family delicacy, or something holiday themed. It’s a laid back contest where everyone is the judge.

Address: 904 Spring Park Loop, Celebration, FL

There will be three categories of prizes – 

  1. Most Creative/Best Holiday Theme
  2. Best Tasting Food or Drink
  3. Best Tasting Dessert

We have hosted this party in the past, and had some great entries, like “Dasher’s Disaster”, meatloaf shaped like a reindeer that had been run over by a Jeep, or “Whoa, Whoa, WHOA!”, a complete gingerbread house with Santa and his reindeer piled up on the front lawn. 

You are not required to bring a homemade dish, and don’t worry, if you just want to bring something store bought; that’s fine too.

For you competitors, here are a few hints – 

  1. Make your dish easy to eat. Finger foods works well, or something that is easy to divide up.
  2. Make enough food, but smaller portions, I’m sure there will be a lot to eat.
  3. Bring what you need to serve your food, and serving utensils. 
  4. This is one party where arriving early is preferable. Food should be presented and ready to eat at 5:30, as judging will commence at that time.
  5. Seconds and thirds are encouraged, especially when trying to decide on who to vote for but let everyone get a taste…no fair trying to eat all of the competition.

Here is a hint for the more competitive in the bunch: Making it “showy” with a cute name – it tends to influence the judges. 🙂

There will be trivia awards too!!!
