An Ironman triathlon is one of the hardest endurance races in the world; a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km marathon to finish.

Wrong; in this presentation, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko presents the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons that he learned from it along the way.

Qu’est ce qui influence votre santé ? - What influences your health ?

Dans cette vidéo, je parlerai tout d’abord de mes recherches sur les facteurs génétiques jouant un rôle dans des maladies complexes telles que le cancer, l’asthme, le diabète et la maladie d’Alzheimer. On peut espérer que d’ici une dizaine d’années, le médecin pourra prédire sur base de vos gènes, quel traitement est le plus adapté dans votre cas. En attendant d’en arriver là, vous pouvez dès aujourd’hui faire quelque chose pour votre santé, notamment en faisant du sport régulièrement. Je montrerai comment la course à pied a changée ma vie et donnerai des conseils pour pratiquer ce sport correctement. En effet, beaucoup de gens abandonnent cette activité à cause de problèmes de genoux. Ceux-ci peuvent pourtant être évité en faisant principalement attention à trois choses : sa technique de course, porter des chaussures adaptées et écouter son corps (notamment, ne pas vouloir en faire trop du jour au lendemain).
In this video, I will first talk about my research activities, which focuses on genetic factors influencing complex diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer disease. We can expect that in about ten years, doctors will be able to predict, based on your genes, which treatment is best indicated in your case. Before we get there, you can already start today doing something for your health, for instance by doing sports regularly. I will show how running changed my life and give some advices on how to do it right. Indeed, many people give up this activity because of knee problems. However, these can be avoided, mainly by paying attention to three things: the running technique, wearing appropriate shoes and listening to your body (in particular, avoiding doing too much from one day to the other).

You Are Ironman
The Ironman triathlon is one of the most challenging tests of human endurance. A 3.8 km swim, followed by a 180 km bike ride, and concluded with a cool 42.2 km marathon really separates the men from the boys (or women from the girls; let's not be sexist). Surely, only super-human athletes could possibly dream to participate in such an event? Wrong. In today's Presentation of the Day, "You Are Ironman" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 105, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko speaks from his experience: he tells the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons learned along the way.
