It’s All In The Details

We are in the thick of tri season, and races are happening every weekend.

Are you keeping up with your training?

Have you had setbacks with illness? Are you feeling tired? Has life happened?

This is all a normal part of the journey, it is happening to everyone, but can all be prevented by paying attention to the details in your training plan.

The details:

Nutrition: If you are not fueling to support your training, you will burn out or get sick. Your body will ensure that happens because it cannot trust you to get the nutritional support and rest that it needs to keep going.

You can avoid this if you fuel properly before, during, and after training.

It’s simpler than it seems. Eat to fuel your training with unprocessed, one-ingredient carbohydrates, fats and proteins – examples would be sweet potato, avocado and any animal protein you enjoy.  Time your nutrition before and after with real food and use clean sports nutrition while training.

Now is not the time to try to eat carnivore or fast. Your body needs fuel to perform!

I believe we need good whole-food organic supplements to help with the added stress that triathlon puts on our bodies and lifestyles. By this I mean not synthetic vitamins but vitamins made from organic foods that your body recognizes and can use to support any deficiency’s that you are not getting from your food.

Sleep: it is the best recovery tool. DO NOT neglect your sleep.

If you do, you will pay. It’s not a question of IF, but WHEN your body forces you to recover because you have not gotten enough sleep. 7-9 hours/night is ideal. If you get a 6 or less, make up for it with a nap or longer sleep the next night. Please do not give me the excuse of not having enough time- stop scrolling on social and go to bed earlier!

Strength Training: it is sometimes more important than swimming, biking, or running.

If your body lacks the structural/muscular strength it needs, the repetitive movements of swimming, biking, and running can cause overuse injuries.

On those days when you simply cannot get out the door for your swim, bike, or run, make sure you get 20 minutes of strength training.

Buy your equipment and have a set of dumbbells right next to your desk.

Have a mat set up and a pull-up bar in the doorway.

Do some squats, lunges, rows, and push-ups every day.

You will be amazed at how much your tri performance will improve by not neglecting your strength training!
