ONE STEP AHEAD: The Green Powders. WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: We combine our 5 Minute Focus and Workout of the Week sections to bring you a fascinating interview with Matt Fitzgerald – writer/athlete/coach. Matt is a prolific endurance author and frequent contributor to Ironman and Training Peaks. He talks to us about his most recent book '80/20 Running' in which he reviews the concept of polarised training principles and the case for 'slowing down to get faster'. Matt shows runners how to break out of the moderate-intensity rut. THE GEEK-OUT: We find out why triathletes are so tough! HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW – TIM VAN BERKEL: This week we are delighted to be able to bring you an interview with Tim Van Berkel. Tim is the youngest three-time Ironman champion in the 33-year history of Ironman racing. He is one of Australia's most recognised professional Triathletes and most recently pulled off a stellar performance in Kona coming 7th in his debut appearance there. Tim talks about his race, what changes he made to his training to prepare for Kona and his plans for 2015.
