“Ironman doesn’t build character…It reveals it.” Mission accomplished…Almost. My goal to race four Ironmans this year has been achieved, yet somewhat disappointingly my goal to go sub 9 hours remains elusive. After coming so tantalizingly close to this mark in my first IM at Busselton 12 months ago; the magical 9hr barrier has since and still remains my most coveted goal. A goal I kno

resynthesis for the 4-h recovery period was 66% higher in Caff compared with CHO (57.7 ± 18.5 vs. 38.0 ± 7.7 mmol·kg dw–1·h–1, P < 0.05). After 1 h of recovery plasma Caff levels had increased to 31 ± 11 µM (P < 0.001) and at the end of the recovery reached 77 ± 11 µM (P < 0.001) with Caff. Phosphorylation of CaMKThr286 was similar after exercise and after 1 h of recovery, but after 4 h CaMKThr286 phosphorylation was higher in Caff than CHO (P < 0.05). Phosphorylation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)Thr172 and AktSer473 was similar for both treatments at all time points. We provide the first evidence that in trained subjects coingestion of large amounts of Caff (8 mg/kg BM) with CHO has an additive effect on rates of postexercise muscle glycogen accumulation compared Akt; AMP-activated protein kinase; Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent kinase Address for reprint requests and other correspondence: J.
