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.
Enclosed you will find the breakdown for this weekend:

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!

Racing your training….not good!
Many athletes are hitting great numbers while running or biking! However, when it comes race day you try to hit the same pace and power output… you just can’t get there.
While training should challenge you, it’s not meant to test you in all of the same ways that racing does.  If it does, you are racing not training. And if you race in training eventually you’ll plateau and won’t be able to match your best practice performances on race day.
The athlete can be pushing themselves too hard in the training, pushing for faster times to show they are in greater and greater race shape. But, many athletes can be racing the training and on race day, they can race flat, tired and unable to come anywhere close to what their training suggested.
Therefore, it is very important to follow your paces during training and don’t be going to hard.  As you approach your next big race, don’t leave your race in training.  Make racing special by saving your best efforts for race day.

Healthy Weight – Loss Guidelines!

A healthy weight for an athlete is about how you feel and perform, not just about how you perceive how you look or what the scale is telling you. It can be difficult in our society to keep a healthy perspective on weight. . The ideal has become more muscular and leaner than ever, while as a whole the population is gaining weight. Often the ideal portrayed in the media is  unhealthy and unrealistic and can only be attained through excessive exercise and overly restrictive eating.

Healthy weight loss starts with setting  realistic goal and avoiding quick, unbalanced, and extreme weight-loss approaches. Try to accomplish your goal in a reasonable amount of time and during the off-season for your sport. Let’s take a look at some sensible weight-loss guidelines.

  • Set a realistic body-composition and weight-loss goal.
  • Set a realistic calorie deficit
  • Remember that trimming no more than 200 to 300 calories daily may be the safest and most effective long-term weight-loss approach
  • Consume enough energy or calories so that you stay above a threshold that is considered too low an would result in a lowering of resting metabolic rate. 
For more information, please read, Sport Nutrition for Endurance Athletes, 3rd edition, page 195 – 199. 

Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced at Sprint in Virginia.

Swim – Use the HIPS – Lava Magazine

Properly rotating your pelvis is arguably the biomechanics factor most critical to success. Stabilizing and rotating through the core and spine creates initial momentum and puts the upper extremities in a position of mechanical advantage, allowing, for greater overall force output and efficiency form the movement. Swimming is not much different from baseball and golf in this way: in a ll of these sports, pelvic rotation initiates spinal rotation, followed by upper extremity action.

Save the Children

Hi guys!

I need 200 of my friends to donate at least $20 dollars to the foundation on my behalf. I need to meet my quota. So, don’t go out drinking this weekend and put up $20 dollars for the children.

This time around I need your help. As you all are aware we train for a cause and work hard at it. This time around I am doing it for the Children… literally.

So, I’m racing in this year’s IRONMAN in Woodlands, TX! By participating in this event, you already know that I am a serious athlete, because i have done 18 of them.

If you help me reach my fundraising goal, together we will help Save the Children provide life-saving, life-nurturing programs to children all over the world, including right here in the United States!
I need your help to reach my fundraising goal!

$100 can help stock a library for schools in the U.S.
$150 can help provide 3 goats to families in need.
$200 can help provide ready-to-use food to help save malnourished children.
$300 can help provide healthcare essentials to a school clinic serving hundreds of children in 35 schools.

Please support my participation in the 2015 Ironman Texas benefiting save the Children. I have made a commitment to raise at least $5,000, and I need your help to get there.

By clicking on the link below, you can visit my personal fundraising page to make your donation. Please click “Give Now” when you visit my page. If you prefer, you can mail your donation directly to me. Or copy paste: http://www.savethechildren.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1110796&supid=380297847#sthash.Oe6p6Md7.dpuf

Weekend of February 7 – 8, 2015

Endurance Fuel!
No matter what level, we all need to do one thing: Hydrate
Water helps to replenish, energize and restore your body. Especially when you sweat. Permanence and achievement matter. And science proves that the property hydrated athlete will outperform the others. That why it is key for you to keep your hydration on target during training. You need to keep yourself hydrated with a blend of electrolytes, carbohydrates and BCAA’s. If you do so, it will optimize osmosis, reduces gut distress, sustain power and improve recovery. Now that you get the point, and what hydrate means, lets start outperforming others.
Therefore, here is the schedule for this weekend:

Saturday,  February 7, 2015

 – Location: Lake Minneola, Clermont, FL
 – Time: 7:30 am
 – Duration: 2 – 3 hours
 – Note: Please bring your running shoes and appropriate nutrition
 – Course route:  17.77 mi Lake Minneola Cherry Lake Loop: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/628310370
