People just dont realize that the adaptation happens when youre resting. I mean, youre not getting stronger when youre pushing, youre getting stronger when your body is recovering. And so, thats probably one of the biggest points, if I could name five points, on one hand, thats probably one of the biggest points around the yoga practice is the sense of recovery and using that time on the yoga mat for kind of that recovery, that repair, the muscle repair time. If you think about it, as youre working on your power numbers, or you have goals that youre trying to meet, and youre trying to kind of have an apex or go up the top of the mountain for a really basic analogy if you dont also go into the valley if you dont have these times where youre literally bringing it down, everything starts to become kind of this mediocre middle place. How many times have we seen or heard stories of athletes that get in a rut or they get over-trained or theyre in a plateau? former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports

I mean, using the bodys own weight is one of the best ways to build strength and something we call proprioception. Its kind of learning how your body moves through space, its huge for balance, its huge for kind of deep subconscious or unconscious ability to balance your body. I mean, what better when youre in a pack setting on the bike, or again, trying to nail a track stand or trying to have explosive power, trying to understand your own power, former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports

Its about making the container bigger, the container. Its about making your world bigger, your worldview bigger. And I mean your worldview as an athlete. So, its just forcing you to think about more tools in your toolbox and make the container bigger, make your training philosophy bigger, make your mentality bigger. Expand how you think about yourself as an athlete and then how youre going to deploy certain strategies and tactics to make you even better at what you do. former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports

Cycling New Zealand Track Champs update after Friday, February 26:

Thursday Night Results:
Gold for Shaane Fulton in the Sprints! She won in three rides over Ellesse Andrews, which we assume was a great match-up to watch! 

Always dapper Sam Webster took gold in the Sprints over his Team Sprint teammate Ethan Mitchell. Again, probably a fantastic race to watch! 

Olivia Ray won the Elimination event on Thursday night. Were not sure if this is a championship event based on the PDF results? Anyways, congrats on the win!

Thursday Results (PDF):
https://www.cyclingnewzealand.nz/assets/Events-/National-Events/Elite-U19-Track-National-Championships/2021/Thursday-PM-Results.pdf

Friday Results:
Aaron Gate set a new New Zealand National Record in the IP. He almost improved the record in the finals, showing hes got great form and backing up his national title on the road time trial. (Sorry, no pics of Gatey!). Regan Gough earned a bronze in the finals!

Shaane Fulton smashed her way to another title on Friday night in the Keirin! We believe this is her third title of the tournament! Of note, Olivia Ray finished 4th in this event and shes doing almost all the races at nationals! 

Sam Dakin is back in the white (silver?!) by winning the Keirin over his mate Callum Saunders. So great to see Sam back in the national kit, but also great to see Saunders back at the top after some health setbacks. 

Corbin Strong is listed as the winner of the Elimination on Friday night, too. Were not sure if this is a championship event but a win is a win! Congrats!

It is a practice. I mean, it is a sense of training. So, what I would say is that, developing habits take, over 60 times you have to do something. So, to break a habit or a pattern, you have to do the new thing 60 times or more, to break that pattern. And so, when I work with people to, especially people who are, like athletes who are coming to us because a coach is making them or maybe they read, again, in a medical journal, or again, on the cover of Time Magazine, instead of like, well, Im looking for that last little bit so Im going to try this. The way we learn things is were unconsciously incorrect doing things. Awareness is the first step to change. So then we become consciously incorrect. Then we realize, oh, now I see myself doing these things wrong. Then we become consciously correct. So we go from consciously incorrect, that we have the tools to fix so we become consciously correct. And then over time, the goal is to become unconsciously correct, former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports

Cycling New Zealand Elite and U19 Track Championships are underway. Lots of T-Town alumni are racing, and some have earned a Silver Fern to their names already. Notable results after Wednesday evening racing:

Olivia Ray earned her second Elite National Championship of the year in the Scratch Race! Her first came in the Elite Criterium Championship a few weeks ago. Shes off to a great start in 2021!

Nick Kilo Kergy Kergozou has won this third consecutive Kilo championship. A neat side note that if you check his Instagram, he has a pick of the trophy with all past champions names engraved. Nearly all of the names on the list have raced in T-Town!

2019 Rider of the Year Runner-Up Shaane Fulton earned a national title in the 500m, pipping Tokyo Olympian Ellesse Andrews by nearly half a second. She was just 0.030 seconds off the New Zealand National Record set by T-Town alumni and Olympian Natasha Hansen. 

George Jackson earned the national title in the Scratch Race, as well. According to his Instagram, this was his first track race of the season! He did race the U23 Road champs, finishing 4th a few weeks back, so hes showing great form, as well.

Congrats to Olivia!

Way to go Kilo Kergy

It’s great that you keep following the kiwis that have ridden at your events

Theres no punitive, oh, duh kind of thing, because we think about yoga, again, bringing freedom to the body, bringing freedom and space. I mean, thats really what it is. Literally, were creating more space for the nerve endings and the blood vessels, were creating more room for the circulatory system to deal with stress. So obviously, as an athlete, again, when youre talking about trying to hit your power numbers and feel better on the bike and feel more freedom. So theres no question that the Yoga has some clear and direct benefits, former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports

FANTASTIC MR JAMES E MORRISON

Yoga helps develop something called intuitive anticipation. And so, our intuition gets really heightened, it helps to heighten our awareness, intuitive anticipation. It helps us to be more aware of our surroundings and more aware of our bodies. So at the end of the day, what is my goal? My goal is to help people be more self-aware. To be self-aware of like, is my left leg tighter than my right leg? The bike demands symmetry. Were on this piece of steel or carbon fiber or whatever it is. And the bike demands symmetry in the body. And so, at the most basic level, I want people to start to analyze how is your body upper to lower, front to back, and most importantly, side to side? So we can kind of analyze force production, former US National team cyclist, Leslee Schenk Trzcinski of Tune Yoga for Sports
