This weeks discussion

With the amount of athletes trying to compete in an Ironman should the cut off time be reduced? If so, what time would be better?

High 5

Five random things John picked up from a  recent talk by by Ken Ravizza
1. It’s good to have crap days – you can learn a lot more from crap days than when you are “in the zone?.
2. Back Briefing (feedback) always ask yourself what you got out of a session/race
3. “Be big? on race day. Physical presence and how you carry yourself can help your state of mind and intimidate others (baseball example)
4. Only train when you are “ready? (gate example)
5. Focus on the process of engaging in the activity rather than the outcomes of your performance
Coach’s Corner

John has an interview with David Watt from Skins, a compression clothing company.
Here’s what they cover:
-    background of skins
-    the science of compression garments
o    use of skins for training v’s recovery
o    travel
-    what makes skins different to other compression garments
o    go through the range (not just tights)
-    where you can buy
-    any other upcoming product developments
