Marathon Training – All You Need to Know About Running Stretches

Triathlon Blog | Triathlon Training

I hope your finding time to fit in your marathon training, both the short and long distances.

Today I wanted to talk to you today about the importance of stretching. Now I’m sure you already know that stretching is important when it comes to marathon training and I’m sure you’re already incorporating it into your marathon training Read the rest of this entry


Attitude is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do; it is more important that appearance, than giftedness or skill.  It will make or break a company… a church… a home.  You have a choice, everyday, regarding the attitude you embrace for that day.

You cannot change your past…  You cannot change how other people act.  You cannot change the inevitable.  But, you can change your attitude.   What is YOUR attitude today…

    Marathon Training – Improved Breathing is the First Step to Increasing Speed-Endurance

    Triathlon Blog | Triathlon Training

    Today I want you to take a good hard think about your breathing. Correct breathing is essential. The process of breathing or respiration [technical name] allows your body to use oxygen in the air to convert sugars and fats into energy that your muscles need to work. If your muscles don’t receive the oxygen they need to cope with Read the rest of this entry

    The Pre-Emptive Strike

    If you are reading this, it is likely you are one of my actual real-world friends that I interact with face to face on a regular basis, perhaps an old friend that has (re)connected virtually with me via this crazy thing called face-crack, or maybe you’re a customer of GymSkinZ.com on the other side of the world.  Either way, on the off chance that we may interact in the next 30 days, consider this a “pre-emptive strike”.

    Sorry for the impersonal announcement, but this is just more efficient.  For lack of a more eloquent or delicate way to put this, I will be on the rag from August 1 to August 28th. You likely know why if you are one of my “real world” friends that is reading this (you know who you are) – and not some random ‘facebook profile stalker’ that I’ve never even spoken to nor will ever meet (you folks also know who you are). In any case, this will only happen once this year, but please know this – I will be touchy, agitated, and maybe even down right ornery.  In the grand scheme of things, this is really only significant for the very few select people (those referenced earlier) currently in my sad little self-absorbed world that I actually WANT to interact with – the rest of you readers can move-along, nothing to see here nor concern yourself with.

    It’s not personal and please don’t take anything I might say or do as such, it’s just an unfortunate (and potentially lethal) combination of glycogen, testosterone, anxiety, and WAY more carbohydrate chemical warfare than any one human being should ever consume within a calendar year.  In the interest of our continued good relationship, I’m asking that for these next 28 days, please give me wide berth and cut me some fricken slack or I am liable to rip your head and/or limbs clean off using only my bare hands. 

    Yes, I am preparing for Ironman and strongly believe that I am ready, but NO – that does not reduce my anxiety and “panic defcon level” in any way, shape or form. 

    Thank you to those that have exercised extreme patience over the last year (and more) for your continued support.  You may now return to your normal face-cracking.
