Should You Eat Like A Caveman?

Just because our prehistoric ancestors ate a certain diet, does not mean it is the best diet for our performance as an athlete. Quantitative Genetics When I was in school, I took a class in genetics. Actually, I took many classes in genetics, but I want to focus on one in particular. There is a […]

A Sigh Of Relief… sort of

Did you hear that?… That was a collective sigh of relief from the triathlon community. For quite some time now, the Professional Triathlete’s Organization (PTO) was attempting to purchase WTC and The IRONMAN Group from Wanda Sports. I have nothing against the PTO. They have good goals for the professional athletes. But I did not […]

Fried Shallot Rings Optional

For the past five years, I’ve been posting YouTube videos and writing blog posts about most anything that crosses my mind. Usually, I can find a way to bring it back to triathlon or endurance sport. But today I’m stumped. When I say, “… crosses my mind.”, I mean that loosely. My mind is more […]

Six Feet And Counting

I figured out how to convince everyone to observe the rules of social distancing. As you know, our virus epidemic has prompted our good government to recommend that everyone maintain a distance of six feet from everyone else.

The Right People

Did I just get relocated to Winnipeg, MB, Canada? My run this morning was freezing! OK. I’m exaggerating, but it was cold. It’s a twenty five minute drive in a cozy warm car from the TriRiot ranch to Marty’s house which is where we met to run. The usual meeting time is 5:15AM, but I […]

I’ll Take the Corona. You Keep the Virus.

63 Days Until IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga I may be way off on that 63 day number above. If this virus gets its way, IM70.3 Chatty might be postponed. Many races have already been postponed or canceled. The impact of this situation on daily life is being felt everywhere. Last week the honorable governor of the […]

My Fatigue Management Team

67 Days Until IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga As I slowly make my way toward the first A race of the season, my head is filled with numbers: TSS, TSB, ATL, CTL, Hear Rate, Watts, Pace and the list goes on. It looks a bit more like alphabet soup than numbers. And today has been a good […]

Triathlon: Fountain of Youth

70 Days Until IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga I’ve been a bit quiet lately. This is the first post in four or five days, so don’t be too surprised if I can’t remember what I talked about in the last post. There’s an awful lot in the news lately about the coronavirus and store shelves are feeling […]
