April Rulon Racing Fearless Athlete of the Month

Congrats to Jon Gagnon for being the Rulon Racing Fearless Athlete of the Month! 

Jon jumped on board to Rulon Racing in 2017 BUT here is the cool story about it all. Jon and I connected via Instagram (of course) and we “bonded” over 9/11. He told his story about 9/11 as I did mine and we started following each other over the last couple of years. I saw he was a runner and he saw I was a triathlete. He reached out to me over the last few years and said, “You look so happy, when you do a triathlon. How?” I said, “I love this sport and how it makes me feel as a human being.”

You saw the lightbulb turn on. Jon did his VERY first triathlon in March 2017 and this was why he was nominated for the April Fearless Athlete of the Month! (more…)

Eating the Elephant in 2017!

As a coach, I have seen many success with athletes, who work their asses off to swim bike and run. Their training is SPOT on. They “crush” their workouts.

As a coach, I have seen those same athletes above, toe the line, and FALL APART during the race! Why do they fall apart? They are NOT mentally prepared!

Today, I chat with you about “Eating the Elephant.” Triathletes will HURT their own races because of their lack of mental training. I know some of you are heading to your first Ironman Triathlon or your 10th 70.3 Ironman Triathlon or your 1st sprint triathlon and this advice will help you in your triathlon journey. (more…)

Thanks to Ilis and Fede for asking away!  Check out the vlog below and noticed I placed the times of what questions were asked, as this was a little bit longer than normal.

Rulon Rules: To the Whoop

As a triathlete or an athlete, have you ever wonder if you got your full amount of sleep?

For example, you head to bed at 10:30. Light out at 11 and up at 6:00 am. Sweet, 7 hours of sleep! Think again.

It has been over 1.5 months since I started using the Whoop and I can’t believe how much I am really loving this thing.

Click HERE to see my Rulon Rules: Rest & Recovery, when I talked about my workouts and my recovery when I was sick back at the end of January, beginning of February.

I also gave you five “Rulon Rules: Rest & Recovery” as recovery is SO CRUCIAL for all athletes.

So, let’s chat about my recovery from the last three weeks with some heavy training days, as I am preparing for 70.3 IM Galveston on April 2nd AND I am dealing with allergies and Upper Respitory Infection…again.

Let’s get into the nitty gritty about The Whoop. There is a Strain Score and a Recovery Score. Let’s explain this set up. (more…)

“Rulon Rules” to Romanian Deadlifts (RDL)

Today, let me give you my “Rulon Rules” to Romanain Deadlift. About a month ago, I chatted about deadlifts.  Romanian Deadlifts (RDL) are a great way to really work the posterior chain, which helps us to move propel forward. If we strengthen the posterior chain, this will help us to run faster, which is what we all need heading into our triathlon season.

What is the difference between a deadlift and a Romanian Deadlift? The deadlift is when the athlete starts the movement, by picking the bar up from the ground and brings the bar to their hips. The RDL is when the athlete starts the movement at full extension in the hip and lowers it slightly pass the knees. (more…)
