Post Race Fueling

As we are aware leading into our races, we are burning a ton of calories and crushing our workouts. We fuel our bodies for our performances; however, when our race is over… many of you stop training completely… it is important to recover at the same time we need to remain active and fuel for recovery. Allow yourself a cheat meal the day after the race and please fuel for proper healing. If poor choices are made, you will have unnecessary weight gain and you will lose fitness. If you need guidance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Holiday Party – December 18

Show off your cooking skills and bring a dish. Best dish will win a prize! Join us on December 18 at Risa and Rob’s Home for our Annual Holiday Party! In addition, we will be doing a white elephant exchange; therefore, please bring a gift no more than 25 dollars.

Plan Ahead! – Coach Torres

Expect the unexpected, so when the unexpected happens, you know exactly what you need to do. As we get closer to our races, it is very important to plan ahead and lay everything out the night prior.

For example:

  1. How many Bottles can my bike carry? The amount of bottles will dictate the amount of hours you will be out there. If I have two bottles of hydration and one with water, I should have completed all three bottles by the second hour and will need to replenish.
  2. How much sodium should I take? On cooler morning, you won’t need as much sodium. Take a minimum of 600-1,000 mg of sodium per hour if you’re female and 800-1200 mg of sodium per hour if you’re male. Aim for the high end of these ranges for longer events
  3. How much nutrition should I consume? How long is your event? That will dictate what you should eat? Which energy system are you going to be using primarily? Talk to your coach, in which is the best approach for our next race. You have my number… text me and we can talk?

Enclosed you will find an example of what I put in my Transition Bags for an Ironman Race.

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!
