  • What to do if the app is not working!
    Normally, apps don't work because they need updating in the App Store or Google Play store. If this does not work, delete and download the app again. Remember to use the same email at login. Updating apps is crucial for maintaining the security, performance, and functionality of your devices and the applications you use. Regular updates patch security vulnerabilities, fix bugs, ensure compatibility with the latest operating systems, and often introduce new features and performance optimizations. Neglecting updates can leave your devices vulnerable to cyberattacks, result in a less reliable user experience, and lead to compatibility issues with newer software. Keeping your apps up to date not only enhances security but also ensures you benefit from the latest improvements, features, and bug fixes, ultimately contributing to a smoother and more enjoyable digital experience.

  • When discussing pre-race nutrition and post-race recovery, what quantity of macros should we consider for a 70.3 triathlon?
    Nutrition plays a crucial role in optimizing your performance during a 70.3 triathlon (also known as a Half Ironman). Both pre-race nutrition and post-race recovery are important aspects to consider. Here's a general guideline for the quantity and macronutrient distribution you should focus on: **Pre-Race Nutrition:** The goal of pre-race nutrition is to ensure you're properly fueled and hydrated before the event. You want to consume a balanced meal that provides sustained energy without causing digestive discomfort. **Timing:** Aim to have your last substantial meal around 2-3 hours before the race start. **Macronutrient Distribution:** 1. **Carbohydrates:** Consume a meal rich in complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Carbohydrates are your primary source of energy during endurance activities like a 70.3 triathlon. 2. **Protein:** Include a moderate amount of lean protein (e.g., chicken, fish, tofu) to support muscle repair and maintenance. 3. **Fats:** Incorporate healthy fats (e.g., avocados, nuts, seeds) in moderate amounts to provide sustained energy. **Hydration:** Start the day well-hydrated and continue sipping water leading up to the race. Electrolyte drinks or electrolyte tablets can help maintain electrolyte balance. **Examples:** - Oatmeal with berries and a banana, scrambled eggs, whole-grain toast. - Grilled chicken, quinoa, steamed vegetables, and a small avocado. **During the Race:** During the race, focus on staying hydrated and maintaining your energy levels with easily digestible carbohydrate sources such as energy gels, chews, or sports drinks. Consume water and electrolytes at aid stations. **Post-Race Recovery:** The goal of post-race recovery nutrition is to replenish glycogen stores, repair muscles, and support overall recovery. **Timing:** Consume a recovery meal or snack within 30 minutes to an hour after finishing the race. **Macronutrient Distribution:** 1. **Carbohydrates:** Rapidly replenish glycogen stores with easily digestible carbohydrates (e.g., fruits, white rice, sports drink). 2. **Protein:** Include a moderate amount of protein to aid in muscle repair and recovery (e.g., lean meats, eggs, dairy, plant-based protein sources). 3. **Fats:** Healthy fats can be included but focus more on carbohydrates and protein initially. **Hydration:** Rehydrate with water and electrolyte-rich beverages to replace fluid losses. **Examples:** - Turkey or veggie wrap with whole-grain bread, mixed greens, and a side of fruit. - Rice or quinoa bowl with grilled chicken/tempeh, steamed vegetables, and a drizzle of olive oil. Remember that individual nutritional needs vary, so it's essential to experiment during your training to find what works best for you. Consult with a sports nutritionist or registered dietitian to create a personalized nutrition plan tailored to your specific requirements and preferences.
