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.

Tri Dynamic is delighted to announce that we will be bringing world renowned coach and author of the Triathlete's Training Bible, Joe Friel to hold two exclusive coaching seminars in the build up to Elbaman 2011. Here is your chance to learn from one of the most experienced coaches in the world and gain an insight into perfecting your preparation for Elbaman and your long distance career.Elbaman is now in its 7th year and is the Official Italian IM Champs and the Tuscan Regional 70.3 Championships. Taking place on the lush & beautiful Elba Island, off the Tuscany coast the race is both as stunning as it is challenging. The swim start from Marina de Campo is beautiful, with golden sandy beaches and crystal clear water. The bike takes in 2 (70.3) or 3 (IM) loops of the western half of the island including several picturesque towns and coves as well as lots of climbing and exciting hairpin bends. The run is a flat course along the seafront and surrounding area of Marina de Campo. Triathlete Europe voted Elbaman as one of the top 10 IM races. 220 Triathlon Magazine also voted Elbaman 70.3 as one of the top 6 European 70.3 distance events. Joe Friel will be holding three separate events during the week. Two exclusive coaching seminars in the build up week to Elbaman and a ride around the Official bike course. The first seminar ‘Your Best Race Ever – Elbaman’ (£30 circa €35) will cover topics including tapering, nutrition, pacing, training with power and Joe Friel will also discuss the Elbaman bike course. This talk will be perfect for those athletes who are taking part in the Elbaman or Elbaman 70.3 at the weekend. (Venue: Marina di Campo. Date: THU 22nd SEP 2011. Time: 8pm-9.30pm) The second seminar will take the form of a Q&A session with Joe Friel - `Your Long Course Questions Answered' (£30 circa €35). You will be able to ask Joe Friel any question you like and learn from the leading authority on triathlon training. (Venue: Marquee at Elbaman Pasta Party. Date: FRI 23rd SEP 2011. Time: 6pm-7.30pm) If you sign up for both talks the price is £45(circa €52). A third unique opportunity will be available for the first 25 people to sign up for both Joe Friel seminars. They will have the exclusive opportunity to join Joe Friel on a bike ride around a loop of the Official bike course of Elbaman 2011. As it is taper week this will be a slow, easy lap. There will be a scheduled coffee stop half way round the lap and vehicle support will be following the group. (FRI 23rd SEP: Details tbc closer to the event). This will be for the first 25 people ONLY to sign up for BOTH seminars. When you pay by Paypal you will be able to pay in your own currency. **BOOKING DEADLINE AUGUST 15TH**
