Taper and Race Week:

This week, it is important to tone it down and don’t over due it. Taper can be defined as a reduction in training with the goal of having the athlete sharp at the end of taper. The goal of sharpness is to optimize fitness for a amazing performance at an important race.

Therefore, don’t go crazy in the training this week as you may feel very strong. Hold it up and give it to me on Race Day!

2016 Triathlon Season 
Is it the adrenaline rush of the finish line? The discipline and structure of training? Or the sense of community you feel from fellow triathletes? Maybe it’s a little bit of everything that makes triathlon so indescribably addicting.

Whatever your reason, we’re giving you one more! Make a decision in 2016 on what races you want to do. If it is a Olympic Distance or up to an Ironman Distance, now it is the time to start building your strengths and weaknesses!

Many athletes from the club have races towards the end of the year and may others have started doing their Marathon training. If  you need guidance on how to plan your training and how does the club can help, please reach out to me.

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!

  • Zachary Sinnott

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!
