Today’s podcast is positively packed with powerful pearls of wisdom that are applicable in team sports, triathlon and life! Coach Al and Dr. Strecker start off with a discussion of the role of fats in the diet on the heels of the TIME magazine article entitled, “Eat Butter.” And while fats are often vilified, they play an important part in good nutrition. Just wander through any grocery store and you're sure to see product packages boldly emblazoned with the words "LOW FAT" or "FAT FREE!" We have been programmed to believe that fat is the root of all dietary evil, yet a close look at the hard evidence reveals that this is not the case.
Great training involves more than just good nutrition, of course, and mental preparation is one key to success that can't be overlooked. In sport, at work and in life, stuff happens. That much is certain. It may be a bad call by a ref, a flat tire on your bike, or an obnoxious driver on the freeway that challenges us, but how we react defines who we are and what we'll accomplish. Let's face it, spending the rest of the day obsessing about the truck driver who cut you off only detracts from your productivity and peace of mind.
Sit back, relax, eat an avocado, and listen in as Coach and Doc take you on a little journey filled with good fats and happy people. 🙂
