Brian (www.PersonalBestNutrition.com) will be holding a seminar in Columbia on April 1 and 2, in conjunction with the Mid-Maryland Triathlon Club's monthly meeting. More details are on their site (www.midmdtriclub.org), including how to register for the event, but here's a brief description:
Brian Shea, President and Head Coach of Personal Best Nutrition, is a nutritional consultant to some of triathlon's top professionals including the current 70.3 & Ironman World Champion Leanda Cave. He is a certified triathlon and running coach, specializing in sports nutrition programs for athletes ranging from beginners to professionals
Brian will be conducting two seminars on formulating your training & race-day nutritional plan. Everyday, triathletes are bombarded with the newest, latest & greatest nutritional supplements & often struggle finding what nutritional strategy works for them. The first seminar will walk you through the basics of triathlon nutrition on Monday at the monthly club meeting. If you register for the follow-on seminar on Tuesday, Brian will go into great detail to help you develop your own specific 1/2 or Iron-distance nutrition plan. This session will also walk you through the differences between:
- Carbohydrate powders
- Electrolyte capsules
- Recovery nutrition
- Bars vs gels ... solids vs liquid
Brian also has an extensive background in endurance sports himself and for over 20-years has competed in all levels from 5K to Ultra-marathon to Ironman with finishes including a 9:31 Ironman Personal Best.
