Ironman has relaxed a few and tightened a few rules up, so before the season get's into full swing the boys will review them for you, so you are aware, and can't blame them. :-)

Do you need a race in front of you to get motivated to train? John does. 

Critical Swim Speed (CSS) is a great tool for training in the pool, but how do you find it and how do you use it?

John tried hard for a while but has to say something SLIGHTLY political this week, and no it's nothing you'll get angry about. The PHIT Act was reintroduced to congress in March and it is something as athletes everyone should be on board with. Write/Call your congressman and get this passed.

Talk about pre-race fueling and some methods to try out if you're someone that deals with a nervous stomach in the morning or pre-race. If this is an issue for you, what do you do?

The E4E Facebook group got into a few discussions this week; around Protein needs and about blister prevention. 

We still have a LONG way to go to meet the 50 shirt minimum at the Booster page, so get your request in and let's see if we can get to the point we need to get to and get these shirts out on the street. Go HERE.

A lot of discussion in the group this week about time management for those member working 12+ hour shifts ( we seem to have a lot of doctors/nurses/first responders in the group).
