Beating The Demons - Chapter 6 by Coach Joe

Why do we repeatedly throw ourselves into painful training sessions and races?  The answer to this question in one of the biggest secrets to Beating the Demons.  Our competitive and survival instincts are deep in our gene code.  For millions of years, we have pushed ourselves to improve.  To win the game of life.  Our ego system is designed and hard wired to lean us this way.  It knows that without this drive, without this willingness to fight and maybe even die for what we believe in, life will soon be over.

Experience Triathlon athletes are used to drinking.  I almost never see them without a water bottle full of water or a sports drink.  But what sports drink do they choose?  And how do they know if their choice is appropriate?  To encourage hydration and explain the differences between beverages, I held a sports drink taste test for participants of the 2011 ET Summer Camp in Madison, WI.
