As a triathlete and a triathlon coach, I attended this year's TCR 2011 at Sandown Racecourse with the sole objective of launching the Palm Paddle into the triathlon world. Being there to promote a new product it forced me to question the many passers-by (looking interested or not!) about their swim ability. As a triathlon coach and a participant for over 20 years, I suspected that asking the question "are you interested in improving your swim technique" might provoke some thought process and hopefully get a positive response. In the majority of cases, the question had the desired effect - yes, I definitely need to improve my swimming.

It seems to be the common perception that the best way to get a sport scholarship is to train and work hard at sports and wait to be discovered. Traditionally, this passive approach to the recruiting process has meant that athletes must rely on coaches and people in the community in order for them to be discovered by college coaches looking for athletes to play in their program.

Using a heart rate monitor is a valuable tool in training particularly if you are training for a marathon. The key area of fitness you will be developing while training for a marathon is endurance. This can be challenging because the athlete has to slow things down from their normal faster pace to effectively develop aerobically. This means running with your heart rate rather then trying to be the fastest in your training group. Whether your goal is to run a fast marathon or finish, using a heart rate monitor is a key to smarter training.

There was a time in the history of women when people thought females simply shouldn't run as a sport. The conventional wisdom was that women were too fragile and vulnerable to endure the consistent impact and exertion of running. Some doctors even promoted the idea that athletic running could harm in woman's ability to have children! Fortunately for women everywhere that day is over. Running is a fast-growing hobby and sport for men and women of all ages. Although once considered rough on the back, bones, and knees, with the proper attire running is a safe and life-giving enterprise.

When gymnasts start training at an early age, they are exposed to various pieces of gymnastics equipment that might seem foreign and unapproachable. All of the gymnastics equipment will seem so large to a person that stands less than four feet tall. By the end of their first year of training though, these same gymnasts will have a very different view of this equipment and feel that a part of them is missing if they miss a day practicing on it.

This can happen: after three years of long runs, races and lots of speed work, you find out that you are getting fed up with doing a session 'because it was on the schedule', or because everyone else was doing it. If you already have two disappointing marathons, try considering base-building. It will open up a whole new lease of life for you. Then you will know why you are doing each run, and if you're an inquisitive type, this will give you more pleasure and motivation.
