If you haven’t been doing this type of training recently, then [...]

Never Give Up On Yourself

In this shot from the 1984 IRONMAN World Championship, I was way behind Mark Allen in Hawi (the halfway point on the bike leg).  Mark had set a blistering pace that I couldn’t match during the first 56 miles of the ride and, by doing so, had accumulated an 11-minute lead on me. By mile 75 as we rode into the town of [...]

2019 Starts Now! How to Make the Most of Your Off-Season

Instead of waiting to start your new season on January 1 like most people, I like to have my athletes begin their New Year on December 15.

It makes us feel better about ourselves (especially in anticipation of the large holiday meals) and can often be performed (at least, in part) in the company of visiting family and friends.

Competition and the Belief in Yourself

  This is a photo of me and my contemporaries: Scott Tinley, Mark Allen and Scott Molina. As some of you may know, we had a dominant hold on most of the races in the 80's and early 90's and we were known as “The Big Four”. For me, the significance of this photo is I always knew [...]
