Week of January 26 – February 1, 2015

Countdown to races!

  • IM 70.3 Puerto Rico – 49 days
  • IM 70.3 Haines City – 79 days
Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this weekend at Celebration Half and Full Marathon!
 
Head for the Hills! 
Hill running has become a popular activity for fat-burning Hit cardio workouts, but research out of South Dakota State University shows that it also can improve long-distance running. In the study conducted at Avera Sports Institute in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, runners in the hill group performed 30 – sec intervals on treadmills seta tat a 10 percent incline twice weekly for six weeks. By the end of the experiment, running economy improved in this group to the same extent as it did with longer intervals on a level grade – a training method already proved effective for distance runners. Therefore, when a hill workout his prescribed, please follow it as much as possible, cause it will help you in shelling run,

Congratulations to the following athletes on finishing Ironman Florida. It was a very tough day. The swim was cancelled and the temp was 44 degrees with gust of wind of 35 mph. Despite it being great running weather, it was a tough day on the bike. The athletes did an amazing job! I am very proud of all of them.

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.
