70.3 Asia Pacific Champs: Nutrition Report

I knew how hard Phuket was going to be nutrition-wise as I had done it many times before when it was only a shorter distance race. In all of those other races, I had always finished very depleted and suffered over the last couple miles of the run. This year being a 70.3, I knew I had a good advantage because I could use the First Endurance products.

I got to the race early on the Monday before to start my climatizing and hydrating for the race. I shared a room with Chris Legh…

Rev3 SC Nutrition Report

After 8 weeks of no racing, which feels like a whole year for me, I had remember all the things I take for a race. That's one good thing about having First Endurance as a sponsor. They provide everything I need, so I didn't have to think too hard.

 

My race nutrition didn't change at all from my previous races - I sipped EFS fruit punch from when I woke up until the start of the race. On the bike: a flask of EFS gel in one bottle with EFS fruit punch and another bottle of just…

Nutrition Report: European 70.3 Champs and Boulder Training Camp

I thought I would stick to my new breakfast plan that I've switched to in the last few races, since I've had success with that method. My new breakfast is really light - just a bagel and strawberry jam. I'm really liking the lighter breakfast as I don't feel so bloated going into the first part of the race. It's also a lot easier eating a light breakfast than forcing down a lot of calories.

 

For the race, I had my regular setup with 2 bottles of fruit punch EFS with one flask…

Having a healthy winter with Vector450.

I’m really happy to be working with Vector450 this year. The benefits are already starting to pay off. It’s kept me healthy through a brutal cold Colorado winter and kept me fit and healthy leading into New Zealand 70.3, where I placed 2nd. My recovery and turn around between that race and Panama 70.3 was […]

Rev3 Florida Race Report

We had an early morning start at Rev3 Florida. Conditions were good and we had a great field lined up. It was an awesome venue for a race and a perfect race morning in Venice Beach, FL.   Finally after 3 months of rehab on my arm, I got my swimming back to where it […]
