New Zealand#1

Well, we finally made it to Christchurch and have been settled for the past 5 days. Really feels good to be back in my old home town and retrace all my old routes with my wife by my side. The first few days were just the normal when settling into a new place. We opened up a bank account, bought a cell phone,setup a wireless network in my mother’s house, and most importantly…….sign up for membership at Jellie Park. This is the swimming pool/gym that Lindsay and I will be spending a fair amount…See More

Rev 3/Eagleman Dirty Double Nutrition

 A few weeks ago I did the back-to-back weekends of racing with Rev 3 Half in Connecticut and the Eagleman 70.3. Fueling between events was going to be just as important as fueling during the races. Rev 3 was a disaster! I was flat all day and just felt miserable from the gun. I used my normal two bottles with bottle one being the 400 calories of liquid shot. Bottle two 200 calories of Fruit Punch EFS. I like doing the EFS last since the taste is more light and refreshing. Ended up walking the…See More

Orlando 70.3

 going to say that Orlando was my first race of the season after my horrible showing at Galveston!Planning travel to races is always a pain in the butt and a big risk. As you might remember from previous posts, I travel standby and only get on if there is a open seat. With the airlines cutting routes and reducing frequency of  flights to locations it has been interesting to, say the least, getting to races. So when my good buddy and training partner Justin Park said he was driving down from N.…See More

Branson 70.3

Another top 5 finish for the season with a 4th overall at Branson 70.3. For me this was with out a doubt the hardest bike course I have every raced and it was also the hardest race to complete mentally.It was going to be tough swim with Hackett, Fleischmann, and Tollekson lined up at the start. I was pretty confident though since I had my…See More

"hey Jamie. What I meant was that there was not one of us who was doing the majority of the work with their nose in the wind up front. Every 5 min we would take turn keeping the pace high. We did this legal with the 10 meter gap required as we had a…"

BSLT 70.3

Friday, July 2, 2010Lubbock 70.3Nutrition at the bottom.One once said that happiness is Lubbock, Texas, in the rear view mirror. Between that and the estimated time en route to Lubbock being pitched to me at 8-8.5hr, I was not too thrilled about the ride up to Lubbock. The wife and I loaded the Frontier around 12:30 and started the haul up. To make a long story short. Total drive time was…See More

"Yes, added 24oz water with the EFS LS and EFS fruit punch. For the bottle it was around 490-500 calories. I think the mixture tastes good, but that is just me."

"One question James..You mention an entire bottle of EFS LS with one scoop EFS Fruit Punch..Did you add any water? How many total ounces and total calories in this bottle? How did it taste?"

"consider the sodium loading protocol. It helps load your electrolytes so there is less of a demand to replenish while racing. Based on feedback and some n=1 testing seems to be quite effective. http://team.firstendurance.com/page/sodium-load"
