CFL Tri Club Weekend Update – July 2 – 4, 2016

Hello Team,

  • Time: 5:00 am
  • Location: Tri Peak Athlete, LLC
    • 617 Virginia Dr. Orlando, FL 32803
  • Duration: 3 hours followed by an 1 hour run
  • Lucky’s Lake Midnight Swim
    • Time: 9:45 pm
    • They will start the movie at 9:45pm and the swim will start at midnight.  You must watch the movie and do the swim to get the patch.  We are letting folks decide which movie they want to watch as Lucky’s pick last year really sucked (He has been banned from all movie review sites for two years).  The choices are Black Water or Deep Rising.  There is a poll on Lucky’s Lake Swim facebook page for you to vote.  The most votes win. Much like our political process the winner still may not end up being very good.

      We are trying to get most folks to wear a safer swimmer buoys during the swim.  Please bring a small flashlight to stick in your buoy (no Dave, a candle will not work).  If everyone has lights in their buoys it looks really cool.  And it’s all about being cool.

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!

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

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