Recovery, Rest, Technique

RECOVERY, REST, TECHNIQUE

We all have our reasons and goals to training. Some athletes are looking for their first event finish, some are looking to lose some weight, some are looking to PR and some are looking to WIN!

Whatever your reason or reasons are to waking up and training is/are, you have to plan your training correctly.

More important than the training sessions themselves you need to properly plan in Recovery, Rest, and Technique!

If you go 100% every day all day without recovery and rest you end up unmotivated, early peak, and physically drained. If you don’t have the proper technique you end up inefficient and possibly injured.

Therefore, you MUST include proper recovery, rest, and technique throughout your training program every training cycle.

Enjoy. Make training a lifestyle not just a goal!

Training Intensity

TRAINING INTENSITY

Training intensity is one of those old school/new school debates. There is the old school approach were you only do high intensity sessions during the build stage of training. Then there is new school were if you are not performing high intensity training sessions from day one to race day you will never PR!

Now there is my way on training intensity.

Training intensity in my book has all aspects. You have the low intensity recovery sessions, moderate intensity meat and potatoes training intensity and the race specific/weakness developing training intensity.

Each and every training intensity needs to be developed throughout the season in order to develop your body, mind and soul in to a endurance PR machine!

Throw away the pyramid approach of training based on volume and think of it as an intensity sand timer.

Start with the weakness intensity training than develop your moderate long distance training intensity with an icing on the cake race training intensity at the end of the rainbow.

High->Moderate->High

With recovery consistent throughout the year!

Enjoy it!!GCM Endurance

Little Changes

Training is simple. You sign up for a race, develop a plan and you put in the miles.

SIMPLE RIGHT!

Well WRONG! It’s not that simple but it is also not complicated. However some of the little changes that you make everyday will make big differences.

The little changes meaning nutrition and recovery. Little changes in nutrition and recovery can set you up for that PR.

So make little changes today. Grab some lean protein instead of fatty, eat a salad instead of a roast beef sandwich, grab some fruit instead on candy, go for a walk, self massage, ice baths.

The little changes are what make you great, not only the epic training sessions.

NYC Marathon?!?

I am writing this on my I-phone, in the dark with no power or heat. My refrigerator is empty because everything spoiled.

The other day we were hit indirectly by hurricane sandy. I have been out of heat and electric for 4 days now. Friends had lost houses, flooded, burnt down.

There is limited food and gas lines that you wait hours for to find that there is no gas.

Then we have NYC Marathon this weekend. The major of NYC said the race must go on!

I think that is the wrong decision.

Athletes will be running past devastation and people trying to save their lives. Police will be used to direct marathon traffic that should be used to protect people from looting. Volunteers at aid stations should be volunteering to give water and food to victims of hurricane sandy.

I am a triathlete and endurance coach. I know what it takes to train for an endurance event. I know the time, resources and effort it takes. I know what it feels like to have a race cancelled.

Wake up people. Time to cancel the race and concentrate on those affected by hurricane Sandy.

We need the endurance community to come together and help rebuild and repair. Not race.

Ali’i Drive: Dreams

Dreams, Dreams, Dreams

As athletes we are so focused on dreams and what is to come that our subconscious takes over when we are sleeping.

Here are some of the top professional triathletes talking about their wild dreams that take over when they are in dream land.

Not much different from the dreams we have  of getting to the event late, without your bike, forgetting your shoes, etc.

At the professional level, it is all about the mental focus that comes with day to day activities.  Their minds don’t shut down when they are sleeping.
