Push Hard Multisport News for 04-09-2018

for Hyperemesis Gravidarum

I started about 5 minutes behind them and went out at a very solid pace on the first loop of the two lap swim, covering those 1.2 miles in just over 31 minutes. Overall my swim ended up being my best leg of the day – it’s the first time I’ve ever swum better than I’ve run so I guess those countless laps of the pool paid off. After a couple of steep uphill miles the huge descents into the town of Keene approached, which made me a little anxious. Big mistake! Shortly after the start of the second loop I knew I had gone out too hard and had to conserve some energy if I was going to get through the run. On the second lap I passed two athletes and was overtaken by at least 100 others, which was very demoralizing and made the pain in my legs hurt twice as bad. Still I hung in there and was elated when I past the 100 mile mark. The first 7 miles of the marathon felt pretty good, but then I started to feel a nauseous and mentally I knew I couldn’t convince myself to just run another 19 miles so I needed a new tack. Running a mile doesn’t seem that bad, so the strategy worked pretty well and didn’t slow me down too much and so as I came back into town around the halfway point I started to feel magical again. I started passing people left, right and centre, but it only lasted three miles before I had to slow the pace back down and return to my one mile at a time strategy. With about three miles to go I decided to suck it up, increase the pace and finish in style, but just as I convinced myself my body rebelled with an epic cramp in my left hamstring. Then as I rounded the last mile I embraced the pain and pushed myself hard towards to finish.

Triathlon Training & Coaching

It’s amazing just how much triathlon has found its way into so many people lives! Anyhoo, just when I was starting to wonder if this appointment was going to cut into today’s training time, the doc got back to the business of medicine. Keep track of your food and drink consumption for 3 to 7 days. Make sure you are getting what you need but consider reducing consumption of drinks that pack in excess calories or don’t provide critical nutrients. We are not talking deprivation here, but aim to balance the nutrient and calorie load. If you really want to fried appetizer, then maybe opt for lower calorie vegetable or protein dish. If it’s dessert that you are dreaming about, skip the appetizer, choose a main dish that fits your desired calorie profile and split the dessert with your dining companion. In other words, running three miles and rewarding yourself with a 1500 calorie burger and 450 fries won’t help you on your journey to svelte street. Manage your calorie reductions at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Add short intervals to your workouts to boost your calorie burn and fitness While it’s true you burn a higher percentage of fat at lower intensities, you actually burn more total calories and boost your fitness simultaneously when you pick up the pace. Not only will strength training help your build muscle and increase your resistance to injury, working the weights will assist you in your quest for less.

Are You Ready For an Ironman?

You have good time management skills – No matter your ability, Ironman training eats up a ton of time! You’ll need to factor in not just your workouts, but travel time to get to and from said workouts as well as time to get your gear and equipment together and then cleaning, washing and organizing it when you are finished. Adding in an Ironman is going to take a lot of creativity to figure out when you can fit in which workout and make it work within your life. A dedicated Ironman athlete is going to pass on those late night bar hopping sessions and friendly get-togethers because he/she knows that it will completely trash the next morning’s long workout. You have friends & family to support you – Training for an Ironman is not just about race day, it’s about the journey and all the training, learning and preparation for the big event. Ironman training can be a huge mental drain and you’ll need people to pick up your spirits, be positive and supporting you in your goal of completing the Ironman. You know how to deal with setbacks – Ironman training takes a long time. Things like illness, injury, overtraining, missing several workouts in a row, or just mentally or physically not being ready to train. If you find yourself wanting to push through those workouts despite the fatigue or pain, you will likely find yourself sidelined and never make it to the start of the Ironman. You have to WANT this – There is no amount of peer pressure that will get you through everything it takes to complete an Ironman. If you are ready to start training for your first Ironman, please contact me! I specialize in helping first-time Ironman athletes get to that finish line.
