The most basic training principles; foot/ankle injury prevention; Boise Pathways interactive map.
- I've been doing an extensive review of the training literature in my personal library. Over and over again, the same fundamental advice keeps coming to the top:
- Focus first on frequency and consistency.
- Build volume slowly (not just weeks, but months and years).
- Sparingly add intensity relative to your goals.
- Allocate time relative to your goals.
- Allocate time/effort to strengthen your weaknesses.
- Nutrition will not make your race, but can break it.
- Take recovery as seriously as training.
- The foot is an often overlooked and undervalued part of the performance equation. That is, until a foot/ankle injury sidelines an athlete. A recent studyfound that athletes who follow a foot core-strengthening program were 2.4x less likely to experience a running related injury than the control group.
- Thank you John Freeney for bringing the Boise Pathways Interactive Map to my attention. It's inspiring to see the work our city is doing to improve quality of life and promote commuting in our city.
- This is a step in the right direction for professional triathlon: "Though coming back to an elite level of sport after pregnancy is not necessarily novel, being paid during the time off is... Launched in November, the policy entitles women to take up to 15 months off while retaining an income through pregnancy, including up to six months after the baby has arrived. The athlete’s PTO (professional triathlon organization) rankings will also remain fixed throughout that timeframe."
