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

March 28, 2016

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

Pain - Deal With It by Cherie Gruenfeld

March 28, 2016

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.

Climbing Off The Emotional Roller Coaster of Chronic Lyme's

Climbing Off The Emotional Roller Coaster of Chronic Lyme's

March 16, 2016


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.

Managing Your Health During and Post-Flu

March 02, 2016


by Jukka Valkonen, RN, PHN, and World Class Athlete

We're well into flu season and it's no joke this year. Last month, the CDC issued a high alert for a particular variant of H1N1 that packs a powerful respiratory punch. Children and adults had been hospitalized and deaths had been reported. While the CDC states that this year's flu shot is a 60% match to the strains going around, not everyone gets the vaccine. This article won't get into that controversial topic. Instead, we'll learn about ways to manage your health once you have the flu, and how to get yourself back to your usual life once the flu has run its course.

Kick Starting Your Motivation!

March 02, 2016

"Many a False Step Was Made by Standing Still" - Fortune Cookie

As I close the book on last year and get stuck in to training for a new year, the inevitable “M” word rears its ugly head. Yup, M stands for MOTIVATION. Some of us have too little of it, some of us have too much of it – but either way, it’s important to understand how to find that optimal level to get you through these early months, particularly for those not blessed with warm winters.

Saying NO When You Want to Say YES

February 17, 2016

by Jeff Spencer


When I was going through the Boston airport the day of the Boston marathon after it was over it was wonderful to see the competitors in the official t-shirts and medals around their necks. And, of course, there were those hobbling around nursing cramps, strains, exhaustion and the usual cast of maladies associated with the endurance competitions.

A common conversation I heard a lot of, traversing the concourse to get to my flight, was how many injuries there were this time. Significantly more injuries than ever.

Major Ed's Journal

February 03, 2016

by Ed Arntson - US Army Ranger

After a spotty month of training in November and first half of December, I’m happy to report that I’m taking my own counsel and I have been training consistently for the last 5+ weeks and seeing real results, especially with respect to my running.

I have been focusing on my running over the last few months after treating it as an economy of force portion of my fitness regimen for the last few years. I intend to continue on with it, focusing on my running from a macro perspective for the next 10-12 weeks with two specific goals: Run 2 miles in under 13 minutes and run 5 miles in under 37 minutes.

My return to longer distance runs of late has been enjoyable. After having little interest in running anything over 5 miles for the last several years (seriously, at 5 miles, my interest switch turned off), I have recently decided that I like running longer distances again.
