THIS month's customer prize winner is the remarkable Trudy Harris, a brilliant IronMan triathlete who is amongst the very best in Canada for her age-group category (65-69). Here, Trudy reveals how CurraNZ is making a difference to her training.
Trudy writes: "I’m a 65-year-old female Ironman Triathlete. I’ve completed eight IronMan races, four since I turned 60. In 2018 I placed first at Ironman Austria and went on to complete the World Championships in Kona.
I’ve always been a recreational athlete and started running in my early 30s. I loved running, and it was an easy fit in my hectic life of a working mother of two.
Although I come from a marathon background, my recovery after running has become more and more slow as I age. I’ve been taking CurraNZ supplement for a month and have seen an amazing improvement in my recovery time after swim, bike and run training. It’s definitely most noticeable after running.
I expect that if I continue training with CurraNZ I will see a small increase in performance.
I first heard about CurraNZ while I was reading an article describing professional triathlete Lucy Charles’s nutritional strategies. I researched more and was intrigued by CurraNZ and the science-based accolades.
I was registered for Ironman Canada 2020, which was cancelled due to Covid-19, so I deferred to IronMan Canada, which is scheduled for August 29. My goal is to qualify in my age group (65-69) for the World Championships.
That said, race opportunities are presently non-existent in Canada. With the vaccine rollout, there’s hope we’ll return to almost normal by the summer. However, until the pandemic is largely under control world-wide, it’s unlikely British Columbia will host large international events such as the Ironman. In the meantime, I’ll continue to work toward IMC, there is still some hope. (And it’s my hobby after all!).
A huge Thank You from Vancouver Canada!
