Pacing and Practice Amp Up Coach Don Velasco’s Cycling Game

Sought-after triathlon coach Don Velasco uses his Samsung Gear Sport to improve his cycling performance
It’s no question that triathlons are challenging. Lasting hours at a time, the race demands so much from the human body across swim, bike, and run phases with little to no rest in between each phase. Triathlons require utmost dedication and preparation, and athletes who are serious about their performance are always on the hunt for the right tools and training methods.

This is where Coach Don Velasco’s scientific and data-backed methods come in. A certified ironman coach and consistent top finisher in his age group, Coach Don promotes the use of lactate and metabolic performance testing. “Lactate testing is an assessment to see how lactate or acidity builds up in your body. So as you go harder, your body generates more acidity, which in turn prevents you from going longer or going faster,” he explains.

Cancer survivor Singtongnoi Por Telakun values second shot at life


The life of a martial arts legend is never easy as the path to greatness is typically laden with a myriad of seemingly impossible challenges.

For multiple-time Muay Thai world champion Singtongnoi Por Telakun, the hardships came early in life.

Growing up in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, he was raised in extreme poverty and experienced the trials and tribulations of going through day-to-day life with very little.

The grim reality became the driving force to dig his family out of the trenches and pursue martial arts in the hopes of a brighter future.

“I would help out around the house to lighten my parents’ workload. After that, I trained hard every single day. It was tiring and torturous, I wanted to quit, but I thought about my future and the people that I love. I couldn’t quit. I had to fight for the people that I love,” he recalled.

Understanding age-related vision problems


Celebrate National Sight Saving Month by learning more about age-related vision problems. Essilor, the world’s leading ophthalmic optics company, shares common age-related vision changes and tips on how to minimize the risks:

Blurred vision. Reading printed materials can become less clear, in part because the lens in your eyes becomes less flexible as you age. Objects can also appear hazy or out of focus at certain distances. When this happens, take time to rest your eyes for a few seconds. It also helps to exercise your eye muscles by regularly blinking.

Dry eyes. Aging also causes our bodies to produce fewer tears. Some people experience a burning sensation, stinging or eye discomfort related to dry eyes. Use artificial tears as needed throughout the day for comfort or best consult your eye doctor for prescription dry eyes medication.
