Coaches Top Tip
- Try hard or perform well? Which is preferred for your brain surgeon? It's the same for athletes. Train for performance, not effort.
- In the spring you may begin to feel bullet-proof. Resist the temptation to leap tall buildings. Patience!
- The harder your hard workouts, the easier your easy ones.
- Want to be excellent? Everyone has the desire to excel; few have the will to make it happen.
- You can't make a tired muscle stronger. You can only improve its endurance.
- Being 100% healthy is more important than being 100% fit. Don't force it in the early stages of injury or illness. Back off.
- For the experienced athlete, intensity, not volume, is the key.
- I discover who I am when I race.
- Training your muscles is much more important than training your heart.
- Training is science. Racing is art.
- True champions win, but they also know how to lose.
- Swimmers, golfers and tennis players practice skills daily. Too many runners and cyclists just run and ride.
- Everyone has the will to win. It's the will to work that makes winners.
- The closer to your A-priority race the less important volume becomes and the more important intensity & duration become.
- Focus on the process, not the outcome.
- The 2 main elements of recovery are sleep and nutrition. Neglect either and recovery is prolonged.
- Whether you're a pro or novice, only 3 things can be changed in workouts: frequency (how often), intensity (how hard), duration (how long).
- When you come into top form you experience physical changes that border on astonishing.
- Do you accept setbacks as steps on the way to success or as signs you simply can't do it?
- Discipline: how important to you are nutrition, sleep, periodization, goal setting, sport skills, attitude, health, strength?
- What does it take to be mentally tough for sport? Dedication. Discipline. Confidence. Perseverance.
- The most common mistake athletes make? Not enough rest. Rest is when fitness happens.
- No dreams, no goals and no priorities means permanent mediocrity.
- The bigger your athletic goals, the more your lifestyle must be focused on achieving them.
- Most athletes don't get how important movement economy is. Most would go faster from improved economy than from improved VO2max.
- As you approach race day your training should become more like the race. This is the foundation of periodization.
- The common denominator for all of the best athletes I have known is a 'can-do' attitude.
- Four words are the keys to success for top performers: Just a little more.
- Good athletes don't become good by training randomly. You need a plan to achieve your goals and purpose for each workout.
- Do the least amount of most specific training at appropriate times that produces the desired results. All else is overtraining.
- I see many goals that are actually wishes - vague desires for grand achievements that are poorly defined. Clarity is needed for success.
- Recovery is just as important as a hard workout. Train hard. Rest harder.
- Racing is how I find out who I am, what my limits are, and how I can overcome them.
- Best way to improve running? Frequency. Most common cause of running injuries? Frequency.
- A hard workout only creates the potential for fitness. It's realized when you allow for recovery.
- Peak athletic success takes months and years, not hours and days. Be patient and train consistently.
- High frequency improves sport skill efficiency. High duration does the opposite.
- Consistent and moderate training are the keys to success in endurance sport.
- To run or climb faster remove excess weight, increase muscular power, or, preferably, both. It's hard to be fast dragging an anchor.
- 1 pound of excess fat costs roughly 1.5 watts on a climb and 2 seconds per mile when running a 10k.
- The fastest way to raise your VO2max is to lose excess weight.
- If you haven't changed your mind on how you train in 2 years, check your pulse. You may be dead.
- In order to find your limits, it is sometimes necessary to exceed them. But rarely.
Lanzarote Tri Camp with Elite Coach Jim Vance
Tri Dynamic has teamed up once again with top US TrainingBible Coach and former 8.37 IM Pro Jim Vance to offer a triathlon training camp in Lanzarote from SEP 8th-15th. Jim Vance is a USA Triathlon Level 2 Certified Coach, elite triathlete and a two-time Amateur World Champion in ITU and XTERRA. He is also an Elite Coach for TrainingBible Coaching. Jim is based in San Diego, California and is also the USA Triathlon National Elite Duathlon Coach for the World Championships. The camp will be based in a new luxury villa at Tri-Sports Lanzarote featuring its own on site 25m pool. PRO triathletes Eimear Mullan and Tamsin Lewis both trained here pre-season before going on to place 1st & 2nd at TriStar Mallorca, followed up by Eimear winning Ironman UK 70.3 and Tamsin winning TriStar Deauville.
Who is the camp for?
Lanzarote is famous for its excellent cycling routes and year round sunshine. The bike routes we will ride are some of the most breathtaking in the world, with expert guides with local knowledge and bike routes that cater to all abilities. There are run routes to suit all requirements with a choice of distances and terrain. The sea at nearby Puerto Del Carmen and the beach is a short 5km ride or transfer away where you will do your open water swim workouts with Jim Vance and swim on the Lanzarote course and check out the run course along the Boulevard. Transport will be provided on the camp and vehicle support on all long rides. Each day on the camp we will be riding around the amazing terrain that Lanzarote has to offer including on sections of the course of both the half and full distance races in Lanzarote. Every evening there will be valuable classroom sessions with Jim Vance to go over the day’s activities covering key topics for racing well and to review the video analysis from the day’s activities.
You will stay in a newly renovated stunning Villa, set in amazing countryside only minutes from the main towns of Puerto Del Carmen, and Puerto Calero – the exclusive millionaire’s marina. The villa is perfect for relaxing after a hard days training with friendly and comfortable surroundings, large chill-out comfortable lounge and seating areas for relaxing, or utilizing the free WiFi and UK TV. You will be able to choose between a limited number of single, twin to share and triple rooms, most with en-suite facilities, those without en-suite bathrooms will only share a bathroom with one other room. Early booking is advisable as there are only 10 spaces available and rooms will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There is also a gym, onsite heated pool and bike mechanic area with onsite mechanic to assemble bikes. With all this plus breakfasts, lunches and snacks plus 5 night’s dinners included so we can enjoy a couple of meals out, you can simply focus on enjoying training and relaxing. Transfers from Lanzarote Arrecife Airport are included in the price so all you need to do is book your flights and leave the rest up to us. Come and join us and Jim Vance for a fantastic week in Lanzarote where you will learn more than you can imagine and have an awesome time meeting like-minded athletes and enjoying the great weather and training.
