ONE STEP AHEAD: How to tell if you're a fat burner. WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Micro burst high intensity interval training for cyclists. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW - ALICIA KAYE: Alicia Kaye, Canadian triathlete, gives us a fascinating insight into her career to date. Gaining pro status in the triathlon world at only 14 years of age she talks to us about the benefits and challenges she faced and her subsequent falling away from the sport. In 2013 Alicia had a breakthrough year with her coach Joel Filliol and last year won the Boulder 70.3, Calgary 70.3 and numerous other shorter distance triathlons. This year Alicia is planning to race her first iron distance race - Ironman Texas. She credits her husband, Jarrod Shoemaker, with helping her rediscover her passion for the sport.
GEEK OUT: This week our geeky contributors 'The Plews and Prof' talk about "Carbohydrate intake in the form of gel is associated with increased gastrointestinal distress but not with performance differences when compared to liquid carbohydrate ingestion during simulated long distance triathlon." Or in other words, gels versus liquids, which is better! 5 MIN FOCUS: Bev talks to Greg Olsen Director of Industrial Design at Cercacor about Ember. Using an advanced 8 LED sensor, a device paired with your smartphone, Ember measures your haemoglobin and pulse rate (2 of the most sought after indicators for performance and race readiness) in less than 90 seconds.
