Tawnee recently featured the elite runner Tina Muir on Endurance Planet, where she shared her journey about getting her fertility back. As I was also dealing with HA (hypothalamic amenorrhea, aka no period because of over-exercise and under-eating), I found Tina’s story really inspirational. Still, I’ve been feeling discouraged for having gone an eternity (cough, […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

In the thick of training when volume is high and you’re laser focused on your A-race, other activities naturally fall by the wayside. The off-season is a perfect time to reconnect with old hobbies and explore new ones. In Dealing With Post-Race Blues I explain the science behind those crummy feelings we can experience at […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

You’ve spent months training for that big race, and finally cross the finish line. Grab the finisher medal, devour the post-race feast, maybe indulge in a few drinks with friends. You’re feeling fantastic! The next day there will be some soreness, but more feasting, celebrating, and maybe writing a race report. Your post-race spirits remain […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

I used My Fitness Pal (MFP) to log every single morsel I put in my mouth for three years, and absolutely loved it. After meticulously sticking to a macro ratio of very low carb, high fat, moderate protein while maximizing vitamins and minerals, I would proudly screenshot my food diary to share with health-conscious family […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

When a work conference brought me down to Mexico in the midst of Ironman training, I was terrified that accidental water consumption would turn long runs into miserably long bathroom sessions. This is a legitimate fear (it happened to several of my colleagues). But, there are many myths about traveler’s diarrhea. It’s not “unavoidable,” as […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

I recently was interviewed by a running publication on anti-inflammatory diets for athletes, and it got me to thinking more about inflammation. I want to share that full interview with our LPC crew plus more on this topic of inflammation—it’s such a buzzword but is it such a serious matter? You bet. Inflammation is a big […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

It’s summertime, and by now you’ve no doubt come across reminders and warnings to stay safe in the sun. Excessive sun exposure and sunburns are linked to increased risk of melanoma and skin damage (1), and for decades sunscreen and sunblock have been promoted in protecting the body from excessive solar radiation. That’s great! Nobody wants […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

How about that featured photo for the article – a throwback to racing with some of my athletes at the Desert Triathlon back in 2011! Sports nutrition isn’t just the “fourth discipline” (as triathletes will put it), it is the top-priority discipline! I work closely with my endurance athletes on developing and individualizing their race […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

“Restriction” and “dieting” go hand in hand, or maybe you’re not dieting per se but you’re a restrictive eater. Either way there’s a common theme: We’ll deprive ourselves to succeed in hard-to-reach (often unrealistic) goals, we’ll deny any and all cravings, we’ll swear off anything unhealthy and make “the right” disciplined choices instead. We’ll stop […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more
