Visit Martin's Apple Chips & Cody Beals at the Races this Season
Nutrition is sometimes referred to as triathlon's "fourth discipline". Rightly so, since few practices have such a profound impact on recovery, adaptation, and performance. Balancing training for three sports on top of any other commitments and responsibilities can be a challenge. For me, nutrition is regrettably the first thing to suffer when life gets hectic. During my busiest training and travel days, I rarely have time or energy to prepare three, nutritious square meals. Instead, I tend to graze throughout the day to meet my nutritional needs.

One of my strategies to stay on top of nutrition is to stock up on wholesome, convenient snacks. I never know exactly when hunger pangs will hit me, so I stash snacks everywhere: in my pantry, my car, my swim bag, my jacket and my locker. Some of my staples include Martin's Apple Chips, granola bars and muffins (homemade or store-bought), nuts, trail mix and dark chocolate. I like to snack on Martin's Apple Chips on my drive back from the pool and they also make a delicious addition to my morning muesli, oatmeal or yogurt. As a tasty, high carbohydrate snack packing the nutrition of two apples per 22-gram bag, they're a great choice for post-workout recovery. The long shelf life of Apple Chips is also convenient since I have a habit of forgetting all the places I stashed them!

A Recipe for Staying Injury Free This Season
As both a Multisport Coach and a Chiropractor, I’m lucky to be able to coach my roster of athletes and also work with athletes in my Burlington and Toronto clinics. I see two types of athlete injuries in my chiropractic practice – those incurred by trauma or accident, and those created over time by repetitive exercise like swimming, cycling and running. The injuries created by repetitive activity are the most complicated to treat and often take longer to get better because it involves identifying and fixing imbalances that have been created by habitual overuse.

Management of overuse injuries requires a combination of passive treatment in my clinic and active exercises done by the athlete to correct the imbalance created by using the same muscle groups repetitively and ignoring others. Habits are hard to break and I find that athletes suffering from chronic conditions have more trouble maintaining the routine required to prevent return of their injuries, and slide back into old habits. Often once the pain is gone it is easy to stop the stretches and strengthening that is required to keep it gone!

It takes work to stay balanced and injury free. So many athletes ignore the work until they have a problem that interferes with their performance. Their foam roller sits in the corner while they ignore the tightness and pain that creeps up slowly. Left unaddressed, it shows up after a hard run or race, or doing a make-up workout on a rest day. The best way to keep injuries at bay is to work on preventing them in the first place. This includes taking care of three things: strength, mobility and stretching. Make “prehab” exercises a part of your weekly training schedule in order to avoid having “rehab” exercise! See Dr. Lewis’ recipe for staying injury free this season
