Interview with David Warden (Pacing):
Bill, when you think about pacing what is the first thought that pops into your mind? Do you imagine yourself racing or training? Is it a swim, bike or run? What distance? How do you vary your pacing throughout a race? How does that vary based on the type or distance? Do you use a device to check your pacing or rely on RPE? Do you have a different pacing strategy if the course is hilly or windy?

4th Anniversary Discussion:
It has been an amazing 4 years. I was surprised when we got to the 4 month mark, let alone the 4 year anniversary.
To date, over 97,850 infections have been confirmed worldwide, and more than 3,300 people have been killed by the virus. By comparison, CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 32 million flu illnesses, 310,000 hospitalizations and 18,000 deaths from flu. Just doing a little back of the envelope math and you get a mortality rate of 3.4% vs 0.1%. How will this impact the Olympics? International travel? Will porta-lets at races have less toilet paper than they did last season?
IRONMAN New Zealand is this March 7th
We normally don't cover races on the other side of the planet, but I have a really good friend that's racing. Aaron Monroe and I have been racing together for years and he is there with his family to do the race and then go to the wedding. Guess what Aaron Monroe's bib number is?
What's New in the 303:
This past week, in surprisingly chilly, Orlando Florida, about a 120 teammates came to swim, bike, run, and have fun for four days. Athletes varied greatly in ability but it’s safe to say that the slowest, least skilled or in-experienced athlete felt every bit a part of this group as the fastest, most seasoned veterans. Here’s why. For this “family” it’s about the start line and how they get to the finish—not how fast they get there.

Video of the Week:
I want to share tips on how I use UCAN. Bill, last week you asked what the UCAN differentiator was. I provided a brief explanation that it's a starch instead of a sugar. This translates to a steady release of energy instead of sugar spikes and crashes. It not only performs differently, it also mixes and drinks differently. I thought I'd share how I use the mixer bottle and how to fill water bottles without the mess.

Anders Hofman You Are An ICEMAN. That's right Anders Hofman completed the just under two weeks ago. This is going to be a hell of a documentary of the first ever, World Record breaking Ironman triathlon in Antarctica just about 10 days ago. He did it to show that limitations are perceptions. The purpose is to inspire other people to dare pursue their biggest dreams and to help prevent mental illness.
