Do NOT make these Summer mistakes

 

Don't let SUMMER get you.


5 tips:

  1. Don't do the same rides or runs with the same people each week. Yes, our sport is friendly, but doing the same thing every week will just make you "average"

  2. Hydrate, but don't OVER hydrate. Overhydration can lead to imbalances in your body.

  3. Know your "Sweat Loss" Here's a detailed one.

  4. Be careful on high sugar drinks that can actually make you MORE thirsty or upset your stomach!

  5. Train indoors! Why? You can control the environment better, control sweat loss and actually go harder during your intervals because core temp is stabilized!

My road to recovery. I am learning The Why? for everything! Why am I craving chocolate? Why am I craving pizza? Is it because I am tired? Dehydrated? Need salt? Hungry? There is an answer to everything, it just has to be figured out. When I am tired I crave everything. I have learned that if I eat my healthy salad with pink salt and olive oil at lunch, my cravings will decrease or go away. So I need salt! when I am tired. If I am craving chocolate, I'm stressed.

Blackstock team wins Pisgah Stage race!

Blackstock team wins Pisgah Stage race!

The Pisgah Stage race is a 5 day timed stage race in the Pisgah National Forest. Pisgah has some of the most extreme, steep, technical, gnarly demanding singletrack in the country, oh, and it's in a rainforest. It's no joke, the climbing is brutally steep and you get zero rest on the descents that are equally as hard. You can't lose focus for a second, or you may end up like one of the teams that raced, walking your mountain bike out of the forest in two pieces!
