Starting triathletes at the age of 15, Caleb Noble has found himself competing professionally around the world by the age of 24. For a few years he has been competing in elite ITU races and has only just started racing professionally in Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events. Caleb has been an avid user and ambassador of CrampFix for almost 18 months and has since recently won the Runaway Noosa Marathon and had the opportunity to race in Challenge Almere in Amsterdam.
How did your triathlete journey begin?
C: I grew up in a small country town (Ganmain) close to Wagga Wagga NSW and grew up around Aussie rules. I found triathlons when I was 15 doing the NSW all schools triathlon and from there moved onto ITU racing and then onto long course triathlons.
What does your training schedule look like?
C: I try to train for roughly 20-25 hours on a good week. On a bad week, maybe a little bit less depending on how much time I have. I try to do as much as I can, but I also work full time landscaping so I try to find the right balance.
What does your diet consist of before, during and after a race?
C: I make sure I get my carbs in pre race and make sure I’m very well hydrated.
During the race I’m just trying to focus on getting my electrolytes and carbs in to sustain me for the duration of the race.
Post race I have a few drinks with mates and a good meal.
How do you use CrampFix in training and for an event?
C: I use CrampFix throughout my training pretty often. I make sure I’m taking it every hour and keep on top of it so no cramps come on.
What races do you have coming up this year?
What was your biggest learning curve?
C: Learning to adapt to the training load leading into a big event and to really rest and freshen up in taper week.
What is your greatest piece of advice?
C: Train smart, not hard. You are better to go into a run slightly underdone then to over do it and burn out and over train.
