How to finish the Ironman Marathon successfully

The Marathon is a painful process, in itself. Now, add to it 2.4 mi (3.86 km) of swimming, and 112 mi (180.25 km) of cycling — the two sports that precede the Ironman Marathon, in the full-distance triathlon; you can immediately grasp the level of difficulty of this competition. In consequence, to get through such a challenging race, a systematic approach is required; that is, for both the training period and the day of the event.

Tapering for a Half-Marathon, for peak performance

The last stop in the training journey. Αnd, before the goal race there is, of course, the tapering period. When it comes to tapering for a half-marathon, this phase in training helps athletes reach the peak of their athletic condition, if done successfully. As a result, they’re more likely to perform to the maximum of their potential, on the day of the race.

Tapering for a Marathon and how to do it right

As we often mention, a Marathon race requires dedication, determination, and discipline. Hence, we can say with certainty that the most important factor for a successful finish is the “journey”; rather than the race itself, as a “destination”. Naturally, this “journey” is no other than the preparation — the training period. Yet, there is a critical phase, in the last stage of this “journey”, when the athlete is slowing things down; in other words, tapering for a Marathon race.

Technology can’t replace sports coaches

In this article, I’d like to share — with sports coaches and athletes, alike — my belief, as described in the title. To repeat, technology cannot possibly replace a coach. What it can do, though, is to help make the coach’s job easier, and more efficient. Utilizing technology, a coach won’t only expand their knowledge and develop their skills, but also grow their business; thus, in turn, help more athletes excel in their sport(s).

Use VO2 max data to improve long distance running

VO2max is the maximum rate at which your body can consume oxygen during maximal aerobic intensity; typically, measured either as L/min or, more commonly, as ml/kg/min. VO2max is considered one of the most important parameters to determine aerobic capacity — or endurance — and improve long distance running.
