More Information & Inspiration (December 2023)

Here are several articles related to triathlon training and planning for seniors that I came across over the past month. Several of these from this month’s finds should also inspire you to become and stay fit.

Information

With fewer hours of daylight in the northern hemisphere this time of year, it is more likely we will run in the dark. While the article specifically addresses nighttime running, many of the suggestions also apply to early morning running.

This article fits with the new post about the importance of electrolytes for ensuring proper hydration.

“Not only does magnesium fuel production of ATP (the fundamental unit of cellular energy), but it regulates electrolyte balance, transports ions across cell membranes, controls neurotransmitters and protects your DNA.”

“Typically, the best pre-run meals for long-distance runners provide lots of carbohydrates for energy, moderate protein for satiety, and small amounts of healthy fats to sustain energy during the run.”

Inspiration

This article includes results of a survey of five Ironman World Championship competitors over age 70. The five people represent the four countries with the highest percentage of entrants from that country over age 70 – Japan, New Zealand, Canada, and USA.
