The friction of waking up early
Hi Fellow Athlete,

You may have heard of Occam's Razor - also known as the principle of parsimony - that suggests that simpler explanations are more likely to be correct that those with unnecessary or improbable assumptions.

In training, and racing especially, I have often been conflicted about certain decisions I had to make. Things like:

  • Should I increase/decrease my pace?
  • Should I coast down this hill?
  • Should I stop at the aid station and get a drink?
And so I realized triathlon needed razors, too.

A razor can be defined as a quick decision-making rule of thumb that helps you shave off unlikely explanations, or avoid unnecessary actions.

Here are six triathlon razors I've compiled:

Fixx Nutrition Review

Last month when I was in Melbourne for the 70.3, I met the co-founder of Fixx Nutrition.

These are the guys behind CrampFix, which I had never tried.

But when I saw that Fixx had an endurance mix, full of electrolytes, I had to check it out.

So I bought a selection of them and then came back to Singapore and tested them out over two rides.

At the end I give my verdict on whether or not their Fuel X product is what they promise: A replacement for gels.

Katie Zaferes

We were lucky enough to interview silver and bronze Olympic medalist Katie Zaferes.

The first question I asked her was how she felt chasing Lucy Charles in the swim. If you watched that, you'll know Katie was just a second behind her. For a while, I thought Katie was going to pass her.

Sprint Reads

 New to tri and confused by the lingo? Here are common tri terms explained.

 What the heck is a 'functional chocolate bar'? Good marketing, I guess. But they did just raise $10 million.

 The Tri Doc did a truly excellent interview with pro triathlete Skye Moench. (Yes, Tri Doc's Razor above.)

 One of the best videos I've seen on race fueling, done by James from Nutrition Triathlon (yes, LeBaigue's Razor above is his).

 Did you know Dr. Alex Harrison (yes, Dr. Harrison's Razor) and his pro cyclist wife live in an RV? Take the tour here - very cool setup!

 How about running NFTs? I'm not sure how I feel about this. Check it out here.

 They're not the only ones in the fitness metaverse. OliveX partners with Cycliq and Stages.
