March 14 Weekly Update

“Not all Athletes Wear Shoes”

We were just talking ground hog predictions not too long ago. I’m so confused along with the rest of you as to what season we are actually in. Let’s cross our fingers that this will be the last of the Winter Storms mother nature has planned for us.

It’s Spring break and time to check out what’s going on in and around us. Perhaps you’ll take in the Toronto Home Show. Get some ideas of summer projects to do around the house. We can’t just train all the time. I’m sure the “honey to do lists” are getting bigger by the minute.

Perhaps you’re off to a sun destination with the family. Getting in that one last holiday. Toes in the sand, warm sun on your face and no electronics!

Wherever your travels take you this week…enjoy the family time and be safe!

Hot in the Kitchen

Brought to you by “Sandra Crowe” Holistic Nutritionist 

Did you know that being lighter will help you be faster and make your triathlon easier.
Are you hoping as you increase your training you will have the added benefit of weight loss. Training over the winter months with those few extra pounds offers you an edge as you gear up for racing, but now it’s time to shed them.

Not sure what you should eat to make that happen?
Need support to help you reach those goals?

Fit Kitchen Nutrition is running a 12 Week program, beginning April 3, and is offering $50 off to members of FMCT.

This program includes a one hour private consultation with a registered nutritionist to design your personalized plan. Then 11 weeks of live webinars, covering topics such as “Good carbs-bad carbs” “Healthy Eating on the go” “Supplements 101” and “Exercise and Nutrition”.
All this for only $150, tax included!

The special offer for FMTC is only valid until March 24, so don’t delay!

Muscle Up

Breakdancer. Yes, you read that correctly. This abdominal exercise might just make you feel like you are back on the dance floor. I’d say pump up the jam, okay music and give this one a try. (Intermediate)
Bend down so that your hands are on the ground and your feet hip-distance a part. Your shoulders should be stacked over your wrists, your knees bent to 90 degrees, your back flat, and abs engaged. This will be your starting position.
Lift one hand off the ground and bring your opposite foot off the floor. Rotate your hips as you bring your leg through kicking it out to the opposite side.
Rotate your hips back and kick your opposite foot through while switching hand placement on the ground.
Repeat for the recommended number of repetitions.

Muskoka Training Weekend

There is not enough interest this year. The weekend is canceled.

StravaStrava Weekly Update

Come on winter, it’s time for you to leave us alone so we can start having more fun outdoor. Who’s looking forward to our first group ride?

 

 

 

 

Member Bio

It can be a challenge to make it out to all club events and training. So what better way to meet and learn about our members than through our newsletters.
This week we’d like to introduce you to Paula Guy.

Paula (age 46) was convinced to joined FMCT by her husband Marc in the spring of 2014. Prior to joining FMCT Paula enjoyed running, and considered swimming and cycling as more of a recreation than a sport. In fact, swimming in any body of water other than a pool terrified her. Although the swim is still Paula’s least favorite segment of the triathlon, she was able to overcome her fear through the training and support of FMCT.

Since joining FMCT Paula has completed a number of triathlons, duathlons and running events, her favorite being the Gravenhurst Sprint Triathlon.
Outside of FMCT Paula is a mother of 3 children and a step mother of 3 children; aged between 13 and 21. She is busy as a senior member of a manufacturing company and in her down time enjoys traveling and red wine.

Coach’s Corner

Q: I suffered through a series of injuries and personal commitments that had me pretty much out of training for the past year and a bit. In the past if I got injured it was never more than a 6 week layoff and while I found I lost my strength and stamina very quickly, it would also come back very quickly. I’m finally healthy and ready to go again, however, it has been so long I am starting over as if I have never run before. Looking back on what I know I was capable of before (Half Marathons, Marathons, Triathlons) I find it very discouraging when I can barely run 500m today. I find this discouragement to be greater than any motivational tricks I have tried, so I would really like to hear if you have any tips for pushing past this mental block so I can get back in the game. I want to, and I know it will feel great when I finally achieve my goals, however at this point the road just seems impossibly long.

A:Thank you for your question. It is very relatable on so many levels.
I believe that there are many, and some within our club whom have found themselves in a situation very similar to yours.
Take a deep breath and know that you definitely will be back to your old self again. Running those Half and Full Marathons plus a whole lot more. Patience will be key. Being off for 6 weeks is completely different than 12+ months. The body will take a little more time to bounce back. The last thing you want to do is get into the crazy “2’s” – too much, too fast, too soon. So have a realistic training plan.
During large gaps from physical activity it becomes super important to start with smaller goals. 1-3 months. Celebrate each of them when completed no matter how small. Remember, you worked hard to achieve them! Each set of goals will require new mantra’s. I think you are familiar with this as I read above. Something that is going to strike that inner fire within you to keep pushing no matter how hard, daunting or however dark a place you are in when training gets tough.
Don’t underestimate a support system. Surrounding yourself and train with others who lift you up, that will hold you accountable, push you past your limits, motivate you and celebrate all achievements big and small.
In summary, be patient with your body, have a realistic training plan, set realistic small attainable goals, find more than one mantra for each set of goals, surround yourself with a great support system and don’t train alone. Keep your training fun and add in a few short races to further see your improvements.
Remember to believe in yourself because we believe in you.

Calling All VolunteersRun4Hope

Hello everyone,

We are less than two months away from the 13th Annual Run4Hope which will take place on Sunday April 23rd, 2017, 9:00am at Professor’s Lake Recreation Centre in the City of Brampton.

On behalf of this year`s Race Committee we would like to thank you for having assisted us in the past and we are hoping that you will consider once again assisting us this year.

The success of the race really depends upon the support of approximately 50 volunteers who volunteer their time on race day to assist with race registration, handing out water to runners at one of the two water stations, and assisting at one of the many traffic points along the race course.

The majority of the volunteer assignments on race day are from 8:00am to 11:00 am, although if you are assisting with registration you may have to arrive a little earlier.

High School students can use their volunteer duties at the Run4Hope towards the 40 hours of community involvement they are required to complete. (Please bring your forms with you on race day)

The proceeds raised by the Run4Hope go directly towards assisting those in our community. With our charity partner Sky’s the Limit, we have been able to supply a number of laptops to youth involved with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peel. In addition to Sky’s the Limit, Run4Hope has made donations to assist in School Breakfast Programs and the Knights Table to provide meals and food to the children and adults of Brampton who deal with the daily issues of hunger, poverty and homelessness.

I cannot stress enough that the success of an event like this is dependent upon your support. If you are able to assist on April 23rd, please send an email to billvieira@yahoo.ca.

Thank you.

“Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try.”

Whoohoo…I think the 2 out of 3 groundhogs were correct. Two said we’d get an early spring. With this weekends temperatures I think I have to agree with the furry little guys!
I’m sure some of you die hards were out hitting the pavement and probably in shorts. The super die hards, likely took that back trainer wheel off your bike and road OUTSIDE!

Let’s take a look at what’s going on this week.


Coach’s Corner

Ask the coach anything you like. We’ll do our best to provide you with the best knowledge to your question. Don’t be shy, we all ask ourselves; “What/How can I do better?” Perhaps you’ve hit a plateau and need to know how to break it. Need some assistance on how to correct a swim stroke. Ask away! Time to pick the Coach’s brain. Your question will be published along with the Coach’s answer. (Yes, your name can remain anonymous.)

WHAT IS POWER TAPING?

The newest rehabilitation tool in the therapist’s tool belt….
The rage is functional, practical, effective and for some aesthetically pleasing with the many colors that it has to offer!!

We have all seen it on professional athletes; especially OLYMPIANS, and we have all wondered what that was!
Now it is popular amongst recreational athletes to help achieve their best results in the sport or activity of their choosing.

“Power Taping utilizes Rocktape as its tape of choice. Rocktape is an American-developed, Korean-made product consisting of flexible cotton and nylon fibers and acrylic adhesive that provides the support, stimulation, and resiliency necessary for rehabilitation, injury prevention, postural support and performance enhancement”.

Brought to you by “Sandra Crowe” Holistic Nutritionist

You’ve just got back from an intense training session and arrive home to a hungry family. Even though your body is tired from your workout, you can still get a healthy meal on the table for your family in 30 minutes. I like this recipe because everything goes in the oven together, so while it’s cooking, you can hop in the shower and pretend like you’ve been slaving over the stove. The other great thing about this recipe is that the chicken is kind of plain (yup- you heard me right- it’s boring). This chicken is great for cooking extra for meal prepping for the week, and using the chicken for other purposes. Tonight eat it with a gravy or tzatziki. Tomorrow use it for lunch in salad. Next meal slice it and season it with tex-mex to make fajitas.

Muscle Up

 

No time for the gym. No worries. We’re here to help build up your exercise library and NO equipment is involved. Check out this plyometric full body beginner exercise.

90-Degree Jump Squat Twist
Position your feet into a slightly wider than shoulder width stance with your toes slightly pointed out and knees slightly bent. Bring your arms to your chest, tucking in your elbows at your side. Keep your neck neutral and maintain a straight back. This will be your starting position.
Descend into a squat by pushing your hips and butt backwards. Continue down until the upper legs are at or just below parallel to the floor.
Once you reach your bottom position, powerfully push through your heels to jump upwards.
As you ascend into the air, rotate 90-degrees to your right.
Once you land (land on balls of your feet), immediately transition into a subsequent squat and propel yourself upwards, again rotating 90-degrees. Repeat four times (a complete 360-degrees) for one repetition.
Repeat for 12-15 repetitions.

February 8th Newsletter

Message from your Executive

Welcome to our Monthly update for the month of February. Hopefully everyone is working hard on their off season to make for a great season when it comes. As Mr. Miyagi says in “Karate Kid” (Thank you Netflix!): “wax on wax off” . We don’t really wax old cars, but there’s a lot of pool intervals, kilometres run, and sweating in the pain cave on the bike to get where we want.ProfLake
Right now things are fairly quiet on all fronts. But plans are already afoot for the coming season. Among these will be open water swims at Professor’s Lake, simulations days and more. As always though, our planning will not be complete without your input. With this we can try to put together the best possible experience for you. The proverbial door is always open to you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Since it’s the shortest month, we’ll be dedicating this month to the shortest, and often most neglected part of tri: The Swim. This month we’ll be sending out articles about swimming, asking questions about swimming and you, and hopefully contributing in some way to get you ready, maybe for the first time, maybe for the 3rd year running, to push off from the beach at Professor’s Lake or at your first Tri of the year.
Hope everyone has a great month, as short as it is!
