It's in the air.

I saw it as I rounded the corner. I couldn’t miss it. Its brilliant yellow leaves were a stunning contrast against the green foliage surrounding it. “What the…?” It was mid-September. I was hot,

dirty and a little sweaty. Fall had

and caught me totally unawares.

Soon, I’ll be hot and sweaty with three layers of technical fabric

covering my extremities. Soon I’ll look

outside at the blowing snow and contemplate a…

YO! I've Been Here Before Weighting for the Second Yo

First the good news. I quit my blood pressure and cholestrol meds a couple of months ago. I was a bit nervous getting my annual blood chemistry done this month. Did I mention in a previous blog that my wife is my family doctor's nurse. I can't get away with anything so I was praying my numbers for cholestrol and triglyceride levels are with in last year's numbers. Last year at this time, I dropped my cholestrol from 254 to 202 and my triglycerides from 276 to 206 using medication. This year,…

Ask the Coach - When Fueling Gets Funky

(post also found on http://neoendurance.blogspot.com)

One of my athletes recently competed in her first half-ironman distance triathlon. It didn't go quite as planned - she writes:

On race day my stomach decided not to turn on. I really couldn't eat anything before the swim. I had about 2 to 3 nibbles off of a pb&j and some water (and wanted to throw up). Right before the swim I did take in… Continue

Ask the Coach - What's an off season?

(Also found on http://neoendurance.blogspot.com)

Do you advise the people you coach to take a break from training or lighten their workout intensity during the late fall and winter months? Or, should endurance athletes plow through the year at full intensity? --Tim

Tim asks a really good question. I'll start my answer with the answer to many questions…

2010 Harvest Moon Long Distance Triathlon: Race Report

So I participated in the Harvest Moon Triathlon this past weekend. It was a good event. I am by far, not a seasoned triathlete but I did apply some lessons that I've learned in the past, some new information that I've recently acquired and I learned some new things about how I would approach a long course triathlon in the future.

Here are the distances: Swim = 1.2 miles. Bike = 56 miles. Run = 13.1 miles.

First, my times.

I'm Back in My Teens

219 to be exact. Now that my weight is heading the direction on the scale, the time of year is coming that seems to help me become a well-marbled individual. A lot like a steak, to be exact so I am working a plan to continue my quest to become 85% lean. To be honest, I am enjoying being able to tie my own shoes without it seeming like a major accomplishment working around my belly. I also like showing my wife how I can take my pants off without unbuttoning them. I am still in that no mans…

Ask the Coach - What's up with those socks?

(this post also found on http://neoendurance.blogspot.com)
This week's question has to do with recovery:

How do compression socks work? And do they help protect tendons from overuse injury?

If you've been to an endurance event in the last few years, you might have noticed more and more people wearing socks that go up over their calves. Fortunately the fashion trend of prior decades has not returned (we hope). What you are… Continue

Ask the Coach - HIIT Me and Training Time

(also found on http://neoendurance.blogspot.com)

This week I'll answer a question from Michele:

When you need extra time training (and you only have so much time) is it better to do longer workouts one or two times a week or five shorter workouts?

and Scott asked me my thoughts on High Intensity Interval…
