January 8: Tip Tuesday: "Be accepting of yourself, but keep yourself challenged at the same time. What are you capable of? You never know until you try." Jennifer Tipton
January 15: "There are two words that can’t be said and heard enough before, during and after class. Those two words are safe and effective, especially as they pertain to indoor cycling." Holly Gebel, MI.
January 22: "Reducing fatigue is called “coming into form.” The term “form” came from late-nineteenth-century horse racing. Before placing a bet you would check the form (sheet of paper) provided by the bookie which showed how each horse had been racing recently. When a horse was racing well it was said to be “on form.” Bike racing which started in the late nineteenth century adopted this term early on. In recent years other endurance sports have begun using it." Mark Tickner, MI.
January 29: "People who exercise at least two times a week need about 0.5 to 0.75 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Good protein sources include fish, poultry, lean meat, soy products, eggs and low-fat dairy products like milk, cottage cheese and yogurt." Michelle Colvin, MI.
