Hi Sugar Challengers, below are some recipes we have been using during the challenge. I hope these help, please email me any good recipes you have found and we'll try them and add to the list!
Another year has gone by and things have been very busy on the Tri-Planet front. I’ve been doing a lot of work with athletes on swim and run technique, keep an eye on the website and Facebook next year for useful pieces of information that will really help you. I’ve also had the privilege of helping with the TriNZ High Performance Junior South Island development weekend as well coaching and training the juniors for the Canterbury Triathlon Club.
Winter is without a doubt the most difficult time of year to train. Not only do you have limited hours of light and sometimes freezing cold weather but motivation is also hard to maintain! It’s easy to say “It’s raining I’m not training”, or “It’s too cold”.
Why not start here! For everyone it’s different, but I find goal setting the easiest way to maintain motivation, races certainly help with this. If there are no races then plan your training with a few swim, bike or run time-trials each month.
I've had a lot of people ask me about nutrition in recent months so Tri-Planet has teamed up with NutriFit to bring to you a Nutrition Workshop that will help improve your diet and understanding of nutrition. I have used the Nutrifit principles and meal plans and find these easy to use and easy to maintain. Before using the Nutrifit principles I was training twice a day and couldn't work out why I wasn't loosing weight. What I realised was that I had my diet and eating regime completely wrong. I was eating the wrong type of food at the wrong time of day, doh!
