Coach Ian Murray of the Best Triathlon Training DVD on Collegiate Nationals CBS Sports Broadcast for USA Triathlon
That’s right, friends. You read correctly. Ian Murray, of the best triathlon training DVD on the market, was featured on the CBS Broadcast of the USA Triathlon Collegiate Nationals. It aired in the middle of the men’s race. If you missed it, you missed some very relevant points about nutrition relevant to training and living a healthy lifestyle.
The focus of Coach Ian’s segment was focused on macro nutrients, such as fat. Not the bad stuff, but the complete protein that is key for our bodies to run at the best rate possible. He also went on to discuss the differences between low and high glycemic carbohydrates. It was all good stuff aimed at all of us- age grouper triathletes that want to race safely and live long. Winning combo!
The USAT Collegiate Nationals will be televised this past week and were sponsored by our old friends at Saucony. Make sure you TiVo/DVR the show on one of the following days!
May 2: 7-9pm Eastern (10pm – midnight Pacific)
May 3: 3-5pm Eastern (6-8pm Pacific)
120+ universities and more than 1,500 college triathletes competed for individual and team national bragging rights. The race was held in Tuscaloosa, AL. Wow. Can you say “humid”? Poor racers. We won’t spoil it for you and list the results in this article, but let’s just say that the great state of Colorado and Uncle Sam dominated in the womens and mens team competitions.
You’ll be surprised to hear that Cal Poly Triathlon Team didn’t bring the insane pain at the team level. That was a bit of a surprise, but we still love our Cal Poly friends and know that they had a solid showing this weekend at Wildflower. They always do. All that said, they did a GREAT job of placing in the top 12 at the team level at the USAT Collegiate Nationals.
