How to Fuel Your Skating

As you probably know, eating and drinking the right foods before training and racing dramatically improves your performance.

But just what are the right foods ... and what are the right portions ... and when should you eat them?

Answer these questions right and you go faster. Answer them wrong and you get a bellyache.

Follow these guidelines and you'll go faster, longer and stronger:

1. Give your fuel a head start.

After eating a carbohydrate-based snack, like a banana or small muffin, give your body some time to process the food before skating or training. A half an hour should be enough.

If you eat a large meal, especially with lots of protein, you'll need more time — as much as two hours — to digest your food before you start skating.

During your training or racing, you can eat energy gels, dates or even jelly beans (or drink Gatorade) to keep up your strength. But give y...


How to Get in Shape This Spring

It's spring! Temperatures are rising. Birds are singing. Flowers are bursting out all over the place ... and so is your body!

Geezus! How did that happen?

Well, it could have been all the fudge ... or brandy ... or TV watching.

Let's face it. It's easy to get out of shape during the winter.

But that's what spring training is for.

Let's get busy:

First, reevaluate your diet.

Sure, it was fun to eat all those holiday goodies, and the extra food seemed to help keep away the winter chill. But enough already!

It's time to reevaluate your diet. Do you really need to eat all that stuff?

For starters, cut out the breads, pastas, fast foods, fried foods, second servings, third servings, etc. Instead, eat small frequent meals consisting of high-quality proteins (e.g., skinless chicken and fish), fresh vegetables and sal...

Is My Heart Rate Too High?

March 17, 2010

Is My Heart Rate Too High?

QHi, Bill: Recently, I was skating with some cyclists, and they were shocked to hear the readings from my heart rate monitor. Over a two-hour skate, my average heart rate was in the upper-160s, and my maximum heart rate was 190 (during some sprints and hill climbs). They were concerned that my numbers were too high. I am 38-years-old in relatively good shape, but I do have a tendency to go out a little too strong sometimes. When is an average heart rate during exercise too high? Should I ever hit 190 beats per minute at my age? They didn’t think so. Thanks for your help! - Jamie, Waco, Texas

Hi, Jamie from Waco: For starters, it's important to remember what maximum heart rate is: it's the maximum number of times your heart can beat in one minute.

The number varies from person to person and ...
