APP_ART.pngBy Michelle Meinking (ustriathlon.org)

With countless nutrition apps available ranging from cooking tips to calorie counting, it can be overwhelming to find one that might be right for you. As many athletes know, being mindful of what you are consuming and fueling your body appropriately is crucial to performance. Nutrition apps can be useful tools to track nutrients and eating patterns. However, choosing the best one for you may be difficult given the endless availability of new apps. In selecting an app, it is important to recognize what you want the app to do for you. Do you want to track calories? Macronutrients? Meal timing? Diet quality? Or a little bit of everything? Other important factors to consider include accessing information that is easy to understand and finding user- friendly platforms.

To simplify this process for you, we chose six of our favorite apps, each offering unique features.

LWT - Part III - Podium Picks....

everyman_nate.pngLAKE WACONIA TRI PREVIEW PART III - We did some AG predictions earlier in the week. We also shared some race history.

Today we are guessing who will take the Top spots in tomorrow's race. Let's start with the guys.

 

LWT XXVIII - MEN - 

In alpha order, here are the men we believe will comprise the overall Top 5: NATHAN ANSBAUGH, JOSH BLANKENHEIM, SAM HAUCK, KEVIN O'CONNOR and MATTHEW PAYNE.

Here are our comments:  

- ANSBAUGH (photo L) - Dr. Nate impressed us last weekend with his win at Lake Minnetonka. Can he win again? Hard to say, because the field he will face tomorrow is deeper than the one he faced at LMT. Because we are not ready to bet against Matt Payne, we think that Ansbaugh will place either 2nd or 3rd.

- BLANKENHEIM - Duluth's Main Man has podiumed twice in the last three years here. Can he repeat that feat. Sure. We're anxious to see how he fares against Ansbaugh. On paper, they appear to be similarly talented.

- SAM HAUCK - Formerly of Shoreview, now from Leganon, NH, Sam used to be a true tri stud. His 2007, 2008 and 2009 resumes were sterling. Then he went to college in Nebraksa and concentrated on bike racing. He's back on the tri scene now but his performance at St. Anthony's in April, while impressive, suggests that he may not be quiteready to race like he did almost a decade ago. Still, we pick him to place 5th tomorrow, though Andy Wiberg could be an obstacle here...

Better late than never, right?

We would have posted this sooner but we've been hoping to find an AOM sponsor, a company that can provide, say, products, gift cards or discounts  to the winners. If there are any companies out there, or maybe even races that can give out entries, please contact us, okay?

May is the first month with a full schedule of multisport races, thus we kick off our AOMs with May. To be eligible, athletes must have turned in at least TWO outstanding performances during the designated time period.

MAY ATHLETES OF THE MONTH - WADE CRUSER & DANI VSETECKA

- Wade set a course record at Cinco Du Mayo Long Course and beat a very deep field which included two highly-credentialed pros at Apple. Dani also won two...
