The last couple years have brought me a passion for duathlons and triathlons. So much so that I have signed up for a half Ironman. Knowing this is a huge undertaking I went out and hired a coach to help me swim more efficiently and guide me on a path for success.
The last couple years also have shown me that introducing dairy and red meat back into my diet has hurt my body and my energy. In 2019 I will move back away from dairy in all forms and same goes for the red meat and back to more of my smoothies and protein from whey. I will also be playing with diet ideas from Matt Fitzgerald's book Racing Weight.
I am also reading and listing to everything I can find on how the mind works and why it tries to stop us from doing things that are beyond what it thinks we can do. The person who keeps coming up is
David Googins. I have listened to all I can find of his, and recently just got his book in the mail. I am implementing what I have got from his message each day. Just a few things I have found are - find your why.... why are doing what you are or want to do, - do something that sucks everyday in order to get out of the "feel good" zone.
My events for 2019 are a lot lighter on ultras and more multi-sport events.
In closing I am looking forward to training harder than the last 2 years and learning new types of racing. To date I am going to be sponsored for a 4th year by Hammer Nutrition. I am still waiting on an answer from Swiftwick Socks and Suunto. Columbia should come due in Feb. So 2019 hope your ready kolo 2.0 is coming in hot!!
