People often talk about wanting to race then they say, But I don’t have time. But I don’t have support. But I don’t like to run. But, but, but … The one thing they don’t realize is that their “but” is literally keeping them on their butt. Been there done that. Thousands of “buts” kept me on[…]
Hard to admit this, but … my #1 challenge when racing Ironman is strengthening a weak mindset. This post shares my #1 tool to develop a peaceful & powerful mindset. First, let me share this. Early into training I learned Ironman requires more mental strength then physical strength. Of course it’s physical. You must swim[…]
Ironman racing brings one major problem … blisters!!! I’ve trained with five different shoes, three different brands. Ran with Vaseline between the toes. Tried different socks, two socks, no socks. Read running books. Some say run on your toes. Some say don’t run on your toes. Still each race brings blisters and usually the loss of[…]
When I first started training for triathlons I was highly impressionable about fashion for I had a false sense that athletes who looked good were the best. So I spent tons of money on great looking clothes, and quickly discovered that they did nothing for my game. In fact, many were uncomfortable with fabric that didn’t wick.[…]
Eye spy with my little eye … a Drifter. That’s what you call a swimmer who can’t swim a straight line. I’ve been a Drifter, usually during ocean swims. If you’re a fellow Drifter and don’t know how to get back on track here’s a tip: spot an object like the shore, a building, or another swimmer.[…]
I have to brag about an Ironman friend, but first let me set the story. Imagine being blind and training for an Ironman 70.3 triathlon. You will blindly swim 1.2 miles in the ocean without the ability to spot wakes, people, or seaweed… AND, you will be tied to someone else. Then you will sit on the back[…]
Getting ready for another Ironman race. Training has not started, but that doesn’t stop me from testing products to make the journey smoother, more comfortable, less painful. Here’s one I’ll share, and hopefully the insight will help other cyclist and swimmers too. Yes, Crotch Guard first got my attention because of its naughty-sounding name. But funny[…]
Six weeks after finishing Ironman Cozumel and I’m 85% recovered. Then again, recovery might be taking longer then normal because I ate massive amounts of chocolate and drank loads of wine during the holidays. Nothing better then balancing six months of Ironman training with six weeks of gluttony … right! 2016 begins with getting my[…]
It’s been said Ironman racing requires more mental strength than physical strength. I agree 100%. With that said consider this – can Ironman, the world’s toughest endurance sport, save your mind? That idea rings true with me. My mind needed saving from chronic PTSD, a condition rooted 30 years earlier from a stalker, rapist who[…]
Yes Ironman training builds endurance, AND it builds comfort in your skin, AND it builds a clear vision of goals. What’s extra fun is combining those functions with fashion. This year I stumbled upon two companies that combined the two: Rudy Project and JLVelo. Rudy Project has bold color helmets, shades and gear. I wear[…]
