Colter Hammer – Salt Lake City –
If my swim is not my “strong point”, should I train just to get through the swim? Should I focus on my strength in cycling and running and just maintain a good swim base ore really go after it?

kim – sarasota –

Did you have aspirations of going pro in your first couple years of racing? If not, how did that career choice come about?

Patrick – Smyrna, TN –
I have and have always had trouble keeping my fingers warm during winter bike rides. I already wear a good, cycling specific glove and a cotton base layer, and I still feel like I’m going to give myself frostbite on rides over an hour. Any advice?

Todd – Calgary –
Hi Heather, what are your top 3 tips for managing your IM training time and ensuring you don’t neglect your family. When are your ideal workout times?

scott – brown deer, wi (Approve)  Hey Heather, We all miss you at the Schroeder YMCA! Looking forward to your returning to see us in WI again. My question is: after all the life experiences you’ve had…what keeps you motivated for racing?

Robin – Mesa, AZ (Approve)  There are now several variations of the “5 hour energy” shots. What is the consensus on these products? Are they healthy? Do they help endurance athletes?

Lynn – Washington, DC (Approve)  Thanks for taking our questions Heather. I have a question about early morning work outs and planning eating before/ after. I run 6 miles or bike around 5:30 am- should I try to get up one hour earlier and eat something before hand? And if so, what do you reccomend?

Ted – San Francisco (Approve)  What do you suggest for doing IM 5 weeks after another IM- particularly biking and running workouts? Second one will be tougher course but higher probability of qualifying for Kona.
