Elevating Athletes Performance

Feb 25, 2017

In this episode, Lise and Gabriela chat about how to pick races.  The process is simple when you have a coach making all the decisions for you.  When you are doing this on your own, there are a few strategies.  Working your way backwards is a great start.  Figure out when your longest rides/run/ training sessions will be.  Can you commit to this?

 

In our next segment Gold Medal and DQ, we highlight somethings that went right and somethings that didn't.  

 

The last segment in our show is called Real stories, Real Athletes.  This is where we feature your stories, your training, your race reports, your memories.  

Our first story of Digging Deep is from my friend and fellow Barrie Baydog Shannon Puna.  she is a triathlete, wife, mother of 2 and a blogger.  You can followShannon's journey at www.myfitnessstories.com.

In this episode,Lise and Gabriela share their stories of taking a break during training.  

Family life, work and training can take a toll and may make it hard to see the big picture. Before you burnout, at the end of the season and after a large training block may be a good time to take a break.  Be sure it's long enough to make you feel restored and allow you to focus and pay attention to other areas in your life.  Training your weaknesses and cross train may be some activities to focus on.

(the ideas from this episode is from Taylor Thomas from Training Peaks)

The 4 main benefits to taking a break.

1.  It gives you a chance to reflect

2.  It gives the body a chance to rest and heal

3. Prevents an overuse injury

4. Rejuvenation

(the ideas came from an article from Todd Kusukis)
