Welcome to Day 3 of the Kona Diaries, in which you’re going to get a stark, honest and open look into the life of one of America’s top fitness experts – and find out what I personally do to design my daily routine for optimum health, get my body into the best shape ever, and prepare my mind to enter the pain cave.
Yesterday, my first day in Kona was spent grocery shopping, napping off the long day of travel, setting up the bike, and spending lots of time with the kids at the beach and in the pool. If you're curious about the type of food items I grab at the grocery store for eating in Kona, you should watch “How To Shop For Healthy Groceries” and “How To Make A Kona Triathlon Wrap”.
Today, the “official” race week began, with Tuesday kicking off the kid's Dip-N-Dash, Parade of Nations, All'i Drive and all the triathlon and fitness folks rolling into Kailua-Kona. In the video below, in which I'm interviewed by Dave Erickson of SwimBikeRunVideos.com, I share a few of my own personal thoughts and expectations for the race.
In this next video, which I'll release this afternoon as soon as it finishes uploading, you'll get an inside sneak peek at more race week festivities, including a ride up and down Ali'i Drive, getting my knee taped up, and capturing the wild, rolling waters of Hawaii.If you have questions about any of this stuff, or certain topics you'd like to see covered in videos or posts over the next week, simply leave your comments below.Coming tomorrow: “Kona Diaries” Day 4 – Dig-Me Beach, The Latest Fitness & Triathlon Tools & How To Register For A Triathlon.
