Is Your Life Worth $100?
Nothing is Certain Except Change Time passes quickly and change happens all around us every day. Like it or not. Enjoy the moment while you can, one day it will just be another memory. -Unknown As I eluded to in the last post, time is fickle and health can be fleeting. Many of us are walking around with serious undetected issues. The moral dilemma is what to do about it, if anything. Perhaps it is more of a personal decision. I've known many a patient who suspected a serious malady but chose to ignore it and live on until the natural course of the disease drew their life to an end. As science and technology push boundaries, functional medicine races to keep up. The array of tests and treatments astound even a seasoned physician. In the end, the choice lies in how long and how well a person wants to live. Opening Up This podcast episode ties together the previous topic of How Much Is Your Life Worth and reveals a personal note on how quickly things change for everyone. Given the chance to ponder, life takes on a whole new meaning and direction when the clock is ticking faster for you than everyone else.

Triathlon Swimming You lead with your head, right? You lead the swim with your head. It's tempting to think that it's your arm that starts out the stroke, but it's actually the head the breaks the bulk of the water. Think of it as a wedge dividing the water and driving it around your body as you pull through with your stroke. Proper head position sets up the rest of the body in proper alignment to cut down on drag. Many triathletes are tempted to lift up and look ahead for various reasons: Sighting Avoiding collision during circle swim (laps) Gaging distance between another swimmer in the open water Looking for the wall The goal is to have the head in a neutral position. Look down at the bottom of the pool or imagined bottom during an open water swim. Looking slightly forward is o.k., but as soon as the neck extends and the head comes up the result is a drop in the hips. The overall result is a huge increase in drag.

The Low T Triathlete
Testosterone and the Triathlete I have been thinking about this issue and how to relate it to my fellow triathletes without boring you to tears. This issue floats around in the popular media, but it tends to be confusing for most people. Even doctors may not fully understand the implications and issues around the issue. Triathlon Training and Testosterone Hard physical training is stressful for the body. In response cortisol (stress hormone) levels increase. Poor sleep and diet add further stress. End Result High cortisol: low testosterone So what? Your Heart will thank you Low Testosterone Levels and Increased Risk of Heart Disease Increased risk of heart disease Increased risk of diabetes type

Nutrition Periodization for Triathletes
Eating Problems for the Triathlete Nutrition Periodization The gift of self-discipline is that it has the power to take you beyondthe reasoning of temporary emotion to freedom. Think of how empoweredyou’ve felt on occasions when you haven’t given in to the ‘I don’tfeel like it’ syndrome and honored your commitment to yourself. Whatdoes not feeling like it have to do with it? The combination of lovefor something with the willingness to do what it takes to practiceit–discipline–results in freedom. -Beckwith As a triathlete, you are likely very familiar with the termperiodization as it applies to training.

Tired & Frozen
The Tired & Frozen Triathlete Feeling a little bit tired? Body aches and muscle soreness keeping you from training? Its the middle of winter and your smack in the middle of the outseason, so what's the problem? Sunlight? If you're like me, you probably train early in the morning or late at night when the kids are in bed. The realities of living a life of triathlete often precludes an adequate amount of sunlight exposure. So what you say? For those that live in a more northern climate, sunlight is often at a premium. While our southern friends may enjoy a bit more balmy weather and sunshine, many of us are stuck under a blanket of snow and cold. Getting an adequate amount of vitamin D is critical not only for health in general but also for the triathlete and endurance athlete who taxes their body beyond the norm. Vitamin D is more than just a vitamin. She functions much more like a hormone insider bodies. This podcast dives into the important issues around vitamin D as it relates to health in general and the traffic.

Training for Triathlon? Willpower for triathlon training Having trouble staying motivated for training? As I write this, we are currently in the midst of the holiday crush. All of my children are celebrating birthdays around the typical Christmas and New Year celebrations adding a bit of logistical nightmare to my training. I suspect the same goes for you as well! Staying motivated when busy, tired and preoccupied remains one of the most challenging aspects of training for triathlon and endurance sports. With that in mind, I wanted to offer a few things that have helped me over the years to stay motivated. Motivation for triathlon & endurance training: Focus on today Accept that starting is the hardest part Find the root Make a list of your goals – revisit often Pick one thing Looking for a simple hack for achieving your racing weight? http://TriDoc7.com/thermo
