Changing It Up

From Winter to Summer Racing... a Wholistic Perspective...

Within my next 24 hours, feeble ilg toes the Start Line of my first of 8 Championship Cycling Races; a 15-mile Time Trial with over 600' of elevation gain.

Minor Detail: I've not been on my road, mountain, or time trial bike save for 4x since, uh…well, OCTOBER of 2015!!

Breaking it down: I've ridden my Mountain Bike 2x, my TT bike 2x (racing it during the Pagosa Winter Quadrathlon in March and in the local Dead Squirrel - don't ask- TT in April). Road bike? uh, once…a club ride in, what was it? March? Early April?

Yet? To lifelong warrior of Wholistic Fitness®? Such an obvious lack of sport specific training has not fired one neuron of nervousness from within my cells for tomorrow evening's Time Trial.

Here is why...

All About Essential Amino Acids by Ben Greenfield

What are the individual aminos and how do they work??  Our good friend Ben Greenfield is a fitness expert, researcher, and accomplished author, who recently did a podcast with Dr. Minkoff on Essential Amino Acids, which you can listen to HERE.  Ben then wrote this article to explain the essential amino acids in a very clean and concise way.  Here is some of what he said:

EXPLANATION: Essential amino acids, as the name implies, are essential because they can’t simply be made by your body like all the other amino acids can. Instead, you have to get EAA’s from your diet or other exogenous sources.

Have you ever heard of Private Tim Hall, AKA Pvt. Tim Hall? If you’re a biology or chemistry geek, you probably have, because his name is the mnemonic commonly used to remember these essential amino acids, which are, drumroll please:

Pain - Deal With It by Cherie Gruenfeld

Why would anyone knowingly take up a hobby that is going to cause great pain?

Good question. But anyone who calls himself a triathlete has done just that. A triathlon of any distance is hard and painful. Training for a triathlon requires hours of being uncomfortable.  Yet many of us are devoted to this sport. Go figure!

In the sport of triathlon, physical ability is a primary determinant of performance, but the ability to suffer or tolerate pain is also a key factor. The simple fact of the matter is: You can’t perform at a high level and not experience pain. Clearly, those who have learned to deal with the pain, and use it to their advantage, have a leg-up in this type of sport.

She mentioned BodyHealth in a recent blog article she posted:

9 Ways an Elite Prepares for a World Championship

"Last week I mentioned in both posts that I vowed to do the little things. To make sure I give myself the absolute best chance of success in both the World Half Marathon and the London Marathon.

But don’t I already do all those little things?

My non-running friends already think I am nuts, so what more could I possibly do?

Well, here are 9 ways I have stepped up my game to take recovery to another level"

Climbing Off The Emotional Roller Coaster of Chronic Lyme's

by Lesley Paterson - World Champion Professional Triathlete, Lyme's patient, Paleo eater, and official member of "brought back from the brink by Dr. David Minkoff" club.

"It ain't about how hard you can hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." Rocky Balboa

I often think that living with chronic Lyme’s disease is like a boxing match. Some days I’m in total control of the fight, my symptoms are under control, and I’m the boss of the ring (my body). Then out of the blue, BAM! I eat something odd, I swim in contaminated water, I get overly stressed or tired and suddenly a few symptoms rear their ugly head. I can go from hero to zero in 48 hours. On the Saturday, I’m just crushing the local group bike ride, but on Monday, everything just feels blocked -- like someone has a choke hold on my mitochondria and it feels like I have the flu. I can struggle to run at a 10 min/mile pace when the week before I was banging out a 5:45 min/mile pace while barely sweating. Now this doesn’t seem that bad, especially to my fellow sufferers who struggle on a much more serious level than I do…. even getting out of bed or a chair can seem like climbing Mt Everest. The reason that I get so stressed about struggling to run a 10 min/mile is that my mortgage payment depends on me running very fast – and a 10-minute mile ain’t gonna cut it.
