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

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

This is a high-fat, very nutrient-dense day of eating, with moderate carbs and plentiful calories that can work well for many female athletes. Female athletes who are over 5’5 and working out 6-7 days a week, with multiple sessions a day, generally need more than 3,000 calories a day, easily, and need to avoid low-carb […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

Last April, I spoke at a conference hosted by my friends at Inside Tracker the day before running the Boston Marathon. My speech was aimed at educating endurance athletes on the tools they can use to maintain good health and fitness, and putting together a comprehensive picture on how blood tests, diet, fitness, body composition and […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

The featured picture… worth a thousand words. That was 2013, the year we did Ironman Tahoe in the snow. Even though I had a DNF 90-something miles into the bike (long story, head to tritawn.com archives for that), completing that cold swim was a victory in itself. Thankfully I’ve had better Ironman days, and I know […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

This round we feature guest Matt Bach, an elite triathlete and Ironman champion, as we dive into more on men’s health for active guys—and what can go wrong when you push too hard for too long. We often discuss this scenario for females, but guys are certainly at risk too, and Matt has experienced this first hand.

In this series, I’ll be covering five studies relating to gluten-free (GF) and low-FODMAP diets. These studies came on my radar thanks to head researcher Dana Lis, who I am having on Endurance Planet soon. The research she’s doing on nutrition is groundbreaking for athletes and is giving us more insight on special diet considerations.

This is another guest post from Bahrain-based endurance athlete Phil Solarski, who I coached full time for a year and now coach on a consultation basis. Upon working together, Phil made a success debut in triathlon (short and long course) and he broke three hours in the marathon—all after recovering from overtraining before we began work together.

There are plenty of ways to warmup before you hit the road for your run. In this article I’ve narrowed it down to some of my favorites, but more importantly I make the case on why we need to warmup even if that means cutting the workout short if you’re in a time crunch. Warmups […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more
