Tonight we had the GymChat and some wonderful questions! If you couldn’t make the chat, here are my responses to questions concerning weight training for triathletes, data recording/collection, and even compression socks!
Thanks again for the folks at Straight to the the Bar for hosting! It was a great time!
Chas Melichar - Good evening everyone. I just returned from my evening run, and I’m here to answer whatever questions you might like while wearing my recovery socks… I’m just glad we don’t have to use webcams, because recovery socks aren’t the sexiest things to wear.Strength training is definitely one area I think all endurance athletes fail to properly focus on, and something that could lead to better results if properly executed. I’m by no means an expert on anything, but I’ll definitely be able to give you a perspective from a 40yr old athlete.For those who are wondering, I’m an Ironman Finisher (15:38), Comrades 55-Mile Marathon (SA) Finisher (11hr11min UP run), triathlete, Nothing Special… 2012 includes plans for 5-7 marathons, Comrades back-to-back, 2 1/2 Ironman’s, 1 Ironman Triathlon, a Sprint Triathlon, Olympic Triathlon, and 2 duathlons – along with a few trail races here and there just fun!
