Nutrition for triathletes

Are you training for a triathlon? If this is the case, keep in mind that not only you need to train your body but also you need to adapt your diet in order to get ready for such an important event, so that you can get the best of your training sessions. This is the reason why we are offering 5 nutrition tips that you cannot ignore. Receive a proper nutrition by having a good breakfast Feeding your body correctly is vital. It’s possible that, if you feel tired often, it will be because of a lack of calories in your body and not because of your training sessions. Very often, because we are afraid of gaining weight, we are not feeding ourselves appropriately, but many experts recommend to ingest around 800-1000 during the breakfast. However, don’t eat them all at one time, and divide them, for example: before training, during the session and once you finished. If your training sessions are improving, and you recover easily, you will know that you are taking care of your nutrition correctly. Fruits and vegetables are your best friends Include more vegetables in your diet. Besides containing essential nutrients for your body, they will provide a good amount of fibre, very important for your training sessions. Furthermore, they will help you recover once you finish your training. As you already know, carbs are the main providers of energy for your body. However, these carbs must be of good quality, so before starting to eat sugar, remember that grains and vegetables are an important source of carbs. You will find a good amount of articles...
Summer camps: Getting Ready

Summer camps: Getting Ready

The D Day is approaching: the summer camps have been chosen and the children are counting the days off from the calendar and you are starting to get a bit anxious again.  Your problems are far from being over, and now is the time when you wonder, how do I pack? What is necessary and what is not? Well, don’t worry, we are here to help you. First things first: the essentials for summer camps. It is very likely that the organizers of the camp have already sent you a list with all the information about what you must and must not pack in the suitcase. If this is not the case, or the list was not very complete, we would like to propose a number of items that you cannot forget. First of all, regarding clothing, please use common sense. Both the kind of clothes and the amount will depend on where the summer camps will be taking place at, its length, the activities and the weather, among many others. Find out if the summer camp has a laundry service and don’t load up your children with stuff. Among the things that you should keep in mind when packing, please add a pair of hats or baseball caps, one or two pyjamas, a bath towel as well as another one for the beach/swimming pool, flip flops, sports shoes and hiking boots. Avoid getting brand new boots, and make your children wear them before going to the camp, so that the new shoes can adapt to the shape of their feet. Furthermore, please make sure that you add name tags...

Jan Frodeno – The triathlete that has already won everything

Jan Frodeno – The triathlete that has already won everything

Are you a triathlon fan? Then we assume that you already know Jan Frodeno. Whether if you know him or not we are about to tell you the story (and the secrets) of the triathlete that has won everything already. Jan Frodeno, the unexpected triathlete Borned in Cologne, Germany, on 1981, Frodeno was raised in South Africa. It was in Cape Town where he started swimming at the age of 15, however, it was not a passion for this sport what moved him to start swimming, but the necessity, as he was a surfer. Four years later, on 2000, he fell in love with triathlon while watching the Sidney Olympic Games. Little he knew that this moment will make him become the legend that he is today. A few months later, Frodeno was selling his bike in order to buy a flight ticket to Germany and start competing as part of their triathlon team. On 2003 he won his first medal, silver, at the European Cup and on 2007, he was sixth in the World Championship. From that moment, the Olympic Games became his goal, and his moment arrived on the Summer Games of Beijing, 2008. Only 8 years after he discovered triathlon for the first time, Frodeno was participating in the Olympic Games of Beijing, where he rose to the top of the podium, winning the gold medal in triathlon against strong rivals such as Javier Gómez Noya, who was forth. However, 4 years later, and after achieving great success in many events, Frodeno finished the Olympic Games of London in sixth position, and a year later, after...
Summer camps – What to do with the kids?

Summer camps – What to do with the kids?

The moment has come. Summer is around the corner and you need to choose a summer camp for your kids. For them, this is an opportunity to learn, have fun and make new friends. For you, a time off from them. However, before enjoying that moment you will need to go through the headache of deciding which summer camp you are going to send them to but… The offer is massive, and with so many options, how to choose the one that better fits your needs? 1. Beach or mountain? Ok, let’s start easily: if you live in the coast area, choose something in the mountain/forest. If you live in the mountain, go for the beach camp. At the end of the day, the goal is for them to see and do something new, so use this opportunity for that: to live in a place that they cannot access the rest of the year. 2. What type of summer camp? As we previously mentioned, there is such a broad and varied selection of summer camps, that choosing the perfect one can take days or even weeks. A few years ago, the summer camps meant to go to the mountain with hundreds of kids doing a bunch of different activities every day. However, nowadays, we can choose from a really wide range of options: camps for specific sport activities, for environmental education, for learning languages, for survival or even just a random mix of all of these. Our suggestion is, first of all, to ask your kids what are they interested in (and a summer camp about videogames is not...
