How to Program your Strength Training for YOUR On Season

Today, I chat with you about Strength Training & the Triathlete but during the “on season.” Some athletes will completely stop strength training during the on season but this is a big “No No” in my eyes. As a coach, I am trying to maintain that muscle for you all as LONG as I can. Basic exercise physiology will not allow you to MAX LIFT your weights along with PR-ing your Ironman Triathlon. (This needs to be another vlog or head HERE for my ebook for more information).

If you are interested in my ebook, you can head HERE but on May 1st for a limited time, the price will be $.99 and then will gradually go up and back to $9.99 on May 5th! Check it out TODAY!

Conquering Your PreRace Jitters

It is time. It is Race Week. You are at the venue and you are ready to “ROCK THE SHIT” out of your race. Let me break down your week for you.

You are TWO days from your Ironman Triathlon! 

You are excited, hanging at the Expo and grabbing your Ironman Branded Gear. You start hearing what people are saying about their training and how many miles they done. You head back to the hotel. You get your T1 and T2 gear ready. Bike is ready. You sit with more athletes at dinner. They talk about the “war” stories of how much training they did. They pull out their phone to look at their data. You observe.

You are ONE day from your Ironman Triathlon! 

You eat a LARGE breakfast and realize you have to start tapering your food today. You head down to the bike drop off with your bike and TI/T2 bag. You start hearing MORE people discuss their training. You head back to the hotel. You jump on your social media. You see EVERYONE talking about Ironman this and Ironman that. People keep talking about the weather. Is it wetsuit legal? What do you do?

STOP EVERYONE…I am FREAKING OUT OVER HERE!  (more…)

The “Old/New/Old” Way of Race Day Nutrition

Race day is around the corner. It may be your first Ironman Triathlon or your 6th Ironman 70.3 Triathlon. You are STOKED. You have done the training. You have put the time and effort in the pool, on the road and in the running shoes. #BAM, you got this!

It’s RACE DAY!

Gun goes off.

You ROCK the swim.

You get on the bike. Your nutrition is like a the “buffet” line and you grab what is on the course. Bike is finished.

The run is your thang or so you thought. Body isn’t feeling good. You want to throw up but you opt to walk instead.

You crossed that finish line but super disappointed.

What happened? Where did things go wrong?

I have one word for you and maybe you have already figured it out:

NUTRITION

Race Day nutrition is a VERY challenging concept for an Ironman Triathlon and an Ironman 70.3 Triathlon but with some trial and error, planning, along with getting information from the right people, I can guarantee that you will NOT have an issue on the race course.

Let’s talk a little bit of science and then let me give you a real life example. (more…)
