NURITION ADVICE with David Bryant, Sports Dietitian, Catalyst Dietitian
Last year, my first nutrition tip was that 'you cannot out train a bad diet', so who remembers the alarming statistic I mentioned that just 4% of Australia achieve the recommended 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables each day?
Port to Pub’s Ceinwen Roberts has set you a 5 week program to challenge you in the lead up to Christmas. We’ll be helping you to keep your training program on track from now until March. If you’re looking for some ocean swim training, try out one of the open water swim events – there is one on almost every weekend if you look at the following sites:
We all know how amazing it feels to cross the finish line at Rottnest Island after completing the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub. Being greeted by the cheers of our incredible and supportive community is just the start.
We know that many of you would not have thought it possible until you started training!
That’s why this year we’re encouraging you to ‘Raise The Challenge’ and empower someone you know to start training for the 2018 event. If they accept – you both go into the draw to WIN!
After two years of attracting a broad range of high profile to recreational swimmers, the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub organisers and participants are ‘raising a challenge’ for everyday Western Australians to start training to swim from Perth mainland to Rottnest Island on Saturday 17 March 2018.
We’ve been lucky to secure the support of some fantastic sponsors again.
We’re grateful for the ongoing support of our naming rights sponsor, Hotel Rottnest. The Port to Pub finishes right in front of the Hotel and the Hotel Rottnest team are busy planning the perfect finish line atmosphere to make it one of the best days of your year!
Three more sleeps! You will be so excited/nervous, and getting up so early, that you probably won’t sleep much Friday night - so you will be taking part in the Port to Pub before you know it!
Make sure you are prepared for any weather and ocean conditions, and for a longer-than-expected swim. Then, on the day, when it’s beautiful weather, calm conditions, and you get there in sub 5 hours, you will have even more reason to celebrate at the Hotel Rottnest.
