  • 50 Ironman in 50 US States in 50 days… the report
    his hip was really swollen James started cramping badly on the swim it took him two and a half hours When he got out of the water he asked for an IV and fell asleep while they were administering it It took us 20 minutes just to wake him up and then he got on the bike where his hip became even more swollen There was a big storm coming in he was dehydrated and he was hurting so badly His coach told him to protect the injury by running on the elliptical We didn t know until after he finished but some people were outraged he did that The emotional stress of what those people were saying about him on top of the physical made that day so hard Lawrence currently holds the Guinness World Record for most Ironman races completed in one year 30 in 2012 Though some predicted this new effort would set a Guinness World Record for most consecutive iron distance triathlons any official attempt was nullified in Mississippi with what Lawrence s crew now jokingly calls Ellipticalgate Inclement weather also forced Lawrence indoors for several days where the bike distance was recorded on a bike trainer instead of on the road and the run completed on treadmills Still the physicality of the accomplishment 50 days of 12 plus hours of movement followed by a mad scramble to the next state has earned Lawrence a legion of fans I called B S when I first heard about it said Todd Henson a Utah triathlete who rode with the peloton of 60 supporters on Lawrence s final day I didn t think he could do it but he actually pulled it off I m impressed I had to come out for his last day and see it for myself In addition to the personal satisfaction of having completed his goal Lawrence is delighted to use his efforts as a platform to raise awareness of the child obesity epidemic At each stop of the tour Lawrence encouraged families of all fitness levels to join in for a 5K alongside his marathon run Participation rates were almost nonexistent at first but grew steadily with each passing day At the final event in Utah hundreds turned out to run with Lawrence including Roll I just wanted to inspire others to be more active said Lawrence who also encouraged supporters to donate to the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation a non profit organisation encouraging healthy eating habits for children and families as a way to fight obesity With this bucket list item checked off what s next Lawrence would like to repeat his 50 state adventures this time as a motivational speaker in schools A documentary on the 50 50 50 journey is also in the works He hinted at retirement from endurance sports but will not make any decisions just yet For now I just want to sleep he remarked at his 50th finish line I expect him to be out

  • How To Improve Your Lactate Clearance Rate
    have discovered the true culprit of our muscle fatigue how does that change our approach to training Recent research indicates that the goal of endurance training shouldn t be to reduce the production of lactic acid but to improve the ability to clear lactate from the blood Simply speaking we shift from the idea of increasing our tolerance for lactate production to the idea of increasing how efficiently our body utilizes lactate as an energy source The faster we can train our body to reconvert lactate back into energy in the liver the longer and faster we can run at a given pace Therefore the goal of your lactate threshold training shouldn t be how to reduce lactic acid production but instead to train your body to use it efficiently While this shift in thinking is slight it radically changes how you approach your lactate threshold workouts Lactate Clearance Workouts Of course traditional tempo runs tempo intervals and cruise intervals help increase your body s ability to clear or reconvert lactate However you can implement special lactate clearance workouts into your training to more specifically target this niche of your training Two of my favorite lactate clearance workouts are the alternating tempo run and for lack of a better name what I call the lactate clearance tempo run Alternating Tempo Runs I first learned about alternating tempo runs from my college coach John Gregorek We used alternating tempos in the early phase of our cross country training when we were developing our endurance and establishing a base for the long season ahead I find them particularly effective for half marathon and marathon training although you can scale them down to 10K or 5K training as well It s a good way to mix in some speed while also doing threshold training The goal for the workout is to run a specific distance even numbers work best and alternate the pace between marathon pace and either 10K or half marathon pace depending on the distance of your run and your fitness level The shorter your tempo run the closer you can get to 10K pace during the fast portion while during longer alternating tempo runs these fast portions are better done near half marathon pace The goal is to spike lactic acid production with the faster mile and then train your body to efficiently process the lactate while still running at a more reasonable pace marathon pace This will help make you more efficient at reconverting lactate into energy on race day For a 3 30 marathon runner the workout might look something like this to start 1 3 mile warmup 6 miles continuous at 8 00 7 25 8 00 7 25 8 00 7 25 1 2 mile cool down Notes As you get more fit you can increase the distance of the run to 8 12 miles depending on your normal workout volume This workout is also a good way to hone your pacing skills Changing paces so
