Product Review:  Solo Sleeve HydraKlick Bottle for Running

Hot! Hot! Hot! The weather has been HOT here in Northern Utah this summer. With all this heat and ramping up my training I am always looking for ways to stay cool while I run outside. I also do not like to carry things in my hands if I can help it so I was excited to try this HYDRAKLICK Solo Sleeve bottle. This bottle is different than other bottles because it’s NOT hand held; it clips onto your waistband. I like this because when I am trying to open my gel or ProBar chomps while running my hands are free to do so.  I really liked that! There is also NO belt, it clips securely on your shorts waist band.  I particularly liked my on the front hip (easy access) on my drawstring shorts. It would also work well with compression shorts I believe, so perfect for a bike-run brick workout.

What I really liked about this bottle particularly is that it was insulated; I filled the 8 oz. BPA-free bottle with ice-water and it stayed cold for my entire run! The bottle also has neoprene pockets for chapstick, gels, key etc… and is equip with a speed value so I can squeeze and squirt water in my mouth or on my head or clothes to stay cool, no need to suck on it.  I really liked this product and am excited to try their whole line of products including the Belt Intro, and Solo 8.Up next, the Solo Mobile phone holder so I can use my new running playlist!  Woot!  Woot!

Happy Running & Stay Hydrated,

Coach Lora

Workout Wednesday: Yasso 800s

Yasso 800’s are a classic workout that I suggest for those trying to determine a potential marathon pace.  Build up to 10 x 800 repeats at your goal pace (ie.  if you want to run a 3:30 marathon then 3 min. 30 would be your interval time for each 800) with a 400 meter jog recovery between.

Looking for a Coach?  I would love to work with you.  I train people from all over the world and USA.  I have been coaching for over 25 years and have coached people for sprints, wrestling nutrition, sprint distance triathlons, 5K, 10K, 1/2 and full marathons, BQ athletes, 70.3 and full Ironman events.  I also work with non-runner that just want to get fit or eat better to loose weight.  I offer full custom coaching services in person (local) or on-line (for those farther away).  Message me at theblonderunner@gmail.com if you’d like to learn more.  I especially love to work with beginners.  Happy Training!

Coach Lora Erickson: Lettuce Explain Podcast Guest

May 9, 2017 by

As you might remember, last month I participated in the Oceanside 70.3 Ironman event.  It is always so enjoyable to get away from the cold of Northern Utah and enjoy warmer temperatures.  While I was there I was able to visit one of my long time friend and she invited me to be interviewed on her new podcast.  I was so excited to participate and talk about my triathlon experience.  My friend and her friend, both dietitians, started the Lettuce Explain podcast and cover great nutrition and fitness topics.  It can be found on iTunes, Stitcher Radio or Google Play.  I was interviewed for Episode 008 which was released today.  Here’s a link if you’d like to listen.  It was so much fun!
