Stay Hydrated This Summer

May 31, 2007 |

Remember to stay hydrated during your triathlon training this summer. Triathletes need to train for very long distances, but this means they can’t afford to wait until they finish to rehydrate. Avoid drinking too much juice, soda and such, because that will add needless sugar and calories to your diet. Just drink water. However a […more]

My Protein Shake

May 30, 2007 |

During triathlon training, triathletes need to eat enough to replenish their bodies. I use a protein shake, which can easily be made by using a blender to mix the ingredients: 1 frozen banana 1 cup soy milk 2 tablespoons peanut butter 1/2 scoop of protein powder I use soy protein powder and soy milk, because […more]

I just heard about ATHLETE, a movie directed by David Lam. The documentary movie about various ordinary athletes through their training and participation in endurance sports. I look forward to seeing the finished product. David Lam says he aims to finish by March 2008 and premier it soon afterwards at a film festival. I assume […more]

Missed Some Morning Workouts

May 19, 2007 |

I have been waking up late and missing my morning cardio workout and Yoga. I could just do my workout whenever I do get up, but I try to start working (not exercising) at 1:00pm everyday. If I started much later, I would either not get all my work done or I’d end up working […more]

Caffine & Racing

May 18, 2007 |

Richard Shryack recently wrote a food nutrition article for racing athletes about caffine: Do you enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning before your workout? I think a lot of athletes do. The caffeine in coffee has been a good selling point for its usage. Everyone enjoys the pick me up that coffee […more]

Winter Swim Ends Tonight

May 17, 2007 |

The town’s indoor pool closes after tonight for lap swim. (They have one more general swim on Friday.) I do not know when the outdoor pools open for the summer, nor do I know the summer hours. Depending on those, I may or may not get a summer pool pass. For now, I guess I […more]

Running a Race

May 11, 2007 |

Niki Aubertin wrote the following article about running a race: Running and racing are taken quite seriously. One may run or race say on a trail for good health, building tolerance or simply for pleasure. While others are very seriously into specific running events. Racing comes with particular considerations, one could be to choose the […more]

My Timex Ironman Watch

May 8, 2007 |

I use a single wrist-watch to time all my triathlon training. I bought it a few months back for less than $50. It’s a Timex Ironman. The colors are yellow and black. Needless to say, it’s water resistant, meaning I can swim with it. I can set it to have up to 9 interval times, […more]

Biking Again

May 7, 2007 |

The weather has steadily warmed recently, so I decided to start biking to the pool when I swim (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). Then, I can run on the other days. I could bike before, because of the cold. Now I can train all three elements of triathlon. However, I don’t plan on training bricks with […more]
