More Information & Inspiration (November 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.


The author states, “The strongest evidence points to nutrient-dense eating patterns complete with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins as ideal for healthier sleeping patterns, but certain foods may provide extra assistance in encouraging better sleep.” Here is a list of the eight foods:

  1. Tart cherries
  2. Kiwi
  3. Peanuts
  4. Salmon
  5. Mushrooms
  6. Yogurt
  7. Pumpkin seeds
  8. Tomatoes

The article includes the author’s reason for including each of these.

When speaking with Dr. Saluck about triathlon and Afib, I learned of another reason for staying hydrated. This calculator estimates the amount of water you need each day based on age, sex, height, weight, and exercise level.

From what I have read recently, it is as important that the water we consume passes into our cells. This is where electrolytes play an important role. Look for a new post on hydration soon.

Attempting to learn to golf in my senior years has challenged me mentally more than physically. However, while reading this article, I remembered there are physical benefits of golfing, particularly the walking associated with it, on brain health.

Dave Radcliffe, age 89, tells Swim Smooth that swimming is keeping him going in later life. The link takes you to an interview with Mr. Radcliffe.

From the description of the interview – “Dave Radcliff from Oregon in the USA, a 1956 Olympian and someone who has held every master’s swimming world record from 50m to 1500m freestyle for the 75-79 and 80-84 age groups, when he returned to swimming in 1995 at the age of 61. Dave’s 1500m freestyle World Record time at age 80 was 22:16.90, only 3 minutes slower than his time in the 1956 Olympics.”
