Trailblazer Nutrition is the culmination of our passion for sport, sports nutrition, and endurance events. We are proud of our nutrition plans and our aim is to make expert sports nutrition available to every weekend warrior and elite athlete.
Our core beliefs are as follows:
Everyone should have access to sports nutrition advice
Sports nutrition is simple, natural, and does not require expensive pills, potions, or fad diets
Sports nutrition should be personalised and the nutrition plan should work around the individual, rather than the individual working around the nutrition plan.
We are constantly refining our plans in order to bring out the best in you, no matter what your time constraints or budget may be. We know your plan will make a difference. You will train better, perform better, and get more out of your endurance event experience and sport. We are so confident that one of our personalised plans will work for you that if you don't notice a difference in training or race day, we will refund your money.
My name is Bridget, I decided to enter the Wanaka Challenge Half Ironman a few months ago and have been chipping away at training since. During the day I work as a solicitor which keeps me pretty busy. I am married to Jesse and we have a Spoodle called Oscar who is awesome. Our weeks are pretty busy with work etc, we also spend a fair few of our weekends in Central Otago. I am not good at getting up early in the morning for training and I get cranky if I don’t get enough sleep!
I'm Tom Shand, a dietitian for Trailblazer Nutrition. This blog that I will be writing on Trailblazer's website is going to be about my nutritional and training journey to completing a northern hemisphere spring marathon. I've got my eye on the London marathon 2014, but need to confirm a starting spot in that, which isn't a walk in the park.
This weekend was Spring Challenge weekend. Spring Challenge is an all woman adventure race run by Nathan Favae and wife Jodie. There are 3, 6 or 10 hour options each involving a combination of running/hiking, mountain biking and rafting. This year the event was held in Gibbston Valley near Queenstown. It is the 3rd year I have competed in it.
As I stated last blog, I am starting on a journey to getting my nutrition bang on so that I can achieve my London marathon goals.
Blog 4. Recovery and finding the balance of unhealthy treats.
I recently did a half-marathon that turned out to be a great example of two things – the importance of setting appropriate goals, and the importance of doing warm up events. Today’s topic will be on goal setting, and I’ll follow it up shortly with a blog on what I learnt from doing a warm up event.
