Michael Raelert is looking forward to take the next step at the City Bikes Ironman 70.3 Miami on Sunday.

Two weeks after this event in Austria he took the victory at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Ruegen. “I would like to go on with this,” says Michael Raelert a few days out of the race in Miami. “But I absolutely know that the Ironman 70.3 Miami on Sunday is a more

Michelle Vesterby, One step back – 2 steps forward

Wednesday 22 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

Not everything in life goes as you expect it to do!! – Sometimes you have to dare to take one step back to be able to take two steps forward. I choose to take an optimistic view on the recently ended world championship in Hawaii, and be pleased with my 14th place, even though the placement didn’t live up to my expectations. more

‘Prevent, Prepare, Preform’ – Foam Rolling

Saturday 25 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
Join Alex in this interactive foam rolling session and learn the value of releasing your body not just for injury prevention, but one of performance. Alex will help you develop your understanding of how the shut down body can effect both your training and competition and show you in practical terms how by doing some choice release techniques you can realise better mobility, strength, power and balance. When talking about the subject of tissue, fascia and immobility, these topics are generally left for the physio or massage therapist to deal with. Alex, where appropriate, puts the reliance back on you to help to deal with these areas on a daily basis. The body is an ever evolving beast and depending on the demands of training, sport and even work it will respond accordingly. Look at our natural suspension and propulsion systems when running. In basic terms, calfs and the quadriceps naturally absorb the impact at footstrike, whilst the glutes create the propulsion (movement...

Gomez to Race LifeTime Oceanside on Specialized Retro Ride

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Jay Prasuhn
StoryGomezChecksBike Gomez gets a first look at his ride for Sunday’s Life Time Fitness Oceanside: a vintage Specialized Allez “Transition.” It’s the question that we as fans of triathlon ask every year; how was it even possible for the guys in the 1980s and early 1990s to record those amazing times in Kona? How is it that Mark Allen still has the fifth-fastest bike split at the Hawaii Ironman? (It’s 4:29 flat, recorded in 1993) Heck Scott Molina went 4:36 in 1988. Half the time they were steel, or unproven aero aluminum. The bikes were unaero, heavy and often didn’t have the drivetrain stiffness we are accustomed to on current tri bikes with deep tubesets and wide bottom bracket bearing setups. In the end, all we can do is shake our heads and wonder. Specialized wondered the same, too. But they decided to do something about it and find out, by testing Old School versus New School, head-to-head, in the company’s wind tunnel, aptly called the Win Tunnel. Last week, LAVA was invited...

5 Things We Like About Mark Allen’s New Book

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Triathlete.com
After a successful campaign on Kickstarter.com, six-time Ironman world champion Mark Allen (this year marks the 25th anniversary of his “Iron War” race with Dave Scott) released his new book, The Art of Competition, in August. An intriguing juxtaposition of nature photographs and Allen’s philosophical musings, The Art of Competition addresses themes such as overcoming challenges, dealing with fear and embracing possibility in improbable moments. “The book came out of years of racing triathlons, out of immense personal reflection, and addresses the simple premise that behind all great performances there is a personal or human element that is a great force we can all learn to embrace and harness for creating excellence,” Allen says. Here’s what we like about this new coffee table book. 1. The inspired quotes from a triathlon legend. Allen came up with the idea while on a retreat with shaman Brant Secunda in Japan. “The day before we were going to do our pilgrimage to Mount Fuji, I was...

IM World Championships (22.10.14)

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Corinne
Some may say I could or should be happy with being 11th in the world and certainly I've come a long way in four years. However, there is no denying that it's what you do on the day that counts, that is the bottom line. Believe it or not, I'm already looking forward to racing in Kona again in 12 months!

“What’s your next challenge?”

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Chrissie Wellington
I’ve just got back from the World Champs in Kona. It was fantastic to watch the athletes battle it out, to achieve dreams, to celebrate success and to mentally re-live my own races on the island. I also felt content with the fact that I wasn’t there to race. I truly mean that. I did not feel the urge to toe the line. I love the island, and I loved being there but I didn’t want to be pounding Alli Drive with one eye on my stopwatch, or heading up the Queen K for that last pre-race ride. Of course I did some “training” while I was there. I will never stop doing sport for the sheer love and joy of it, but I didn’t once regret the decision I made to retire. The most common question I was asked by the (fantastic!) people I met in Kona was “when are you coming back to race again?” My simple reply of “I’m not” was closely followed by the next question: “So what’s your next challenge?” The second question is so much harder to respond to. When people kindly ask about my next challenge, I...

A DIFFERENT KIND OF FREEDOM: READY TO RACE REV3

Thursday 05 Jul 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
You never realize how good you have it until it's gone, or until it's put directly under the spotlight and praised by everyone else. I had that feeling over these past weeks with the Olympic Trials being here in Eugene, Oregon. On Hayward Field. When I was a runner living in Iowa, I always had this magical image of what Hayward Field was and what it represented. And the incredibly fast people who ran on it- a lot of them Olympians.Watching the Olympics made me realize a lot of things.The start of the 100m finals. - It made me realize how much running speed I did have even though I was never the fastest girl on our team- especially before I got injured.  I could run a sub 4:50 1500 and over-under 10 minutes for a 3k. In college we ran 10-12 x 70-75 second 400's with at a moderate 200m run pace between. Two years ago I could run a sub 36 minute 10k. Right now, that is all impossible.- It made me realize how many Americans I do know that have either made it to the Olympics...

Kona SMASHfest 2014

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Hillarybiscay
smash booth with belinda In the past couple years Kona has become my biggest work week of the year. It is a crazy non-stop 7-10 days going full bore on the SMASH and coaching jobs. I always end up getting verrrrrry minimal training done myself yet coming home feeling like I’ve been run over by a bus. As I sit here on a plane to Texas for the next stop in our SMASH roadshow, I am still not sure I have recovered from the Kona madness. But it was well worth it! The only bummer of this new schedule is that my catch-ups with some of my besties are limited to their time stopping by our SMASH expo booth. Gone are the leisurely coffee chats and long dinners out during race week. Thankfully, as you can see, Belinda and my crew came by and visited and even got outfitted in the latest SMASH gear! We introduced a bunch of new stuff (see bikinis below) in Kona and were pretty stoked with how it was all received. This year was a huge year for TeamHPB with our biggest group of athletes racing yet—6 in total. I always...

MY THOUGHTS ON KONA 2014

Thursday 23 Oct 2014 Luke McKenzie
luke-run-alli I have had a week to think about Kona 2014 and a day that didn’t go to plan. Going into the event with high expectations after finishing second in 2013 I guess only a repeat result (or one better) was going to appear a success. In the days post race it was a little frustrating that people kept saying to me “sorry you had a bad race”. I know it wasn’t a win, a podium or top ten but I also think that 15th on a rough day isn’t all that “bad” at the Ironman World Championships. On a day where over 20 pro men didn’t finish it was satisfying to fight and not take the easy option. I owe more to my family, friends, sponsors and supporters than to quit simply because I wasn’t contending for the win. The truth about my day was I never fired. My swim had been struggling all year and I thought I had addressed issues there to get it back to where it should be. Clearly that wasn’t the case and I started the bike three minutes behind the...

Wineglass Half Marathon Girls' Weekend race report!

Thursday 23 Oct 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
It's Thursday night and we are waiting for traffic to die down a bit before we drive to NORTH CAROLINA FOR BEACH2BATTLESHIP! So I'm going to try to eek out a race report quickly as race week has consisted more of drinking pumpkin beer, watching the World Series (GO GIANTS!) and only swimming for one hour (but really hard!) and testing out the racing bike set-up for 30mins. When I taper, I taper

Kona 2014: Still Seeking

Thursday 23 Oct 2014 Admin
IMG_0588 I believe that one should only be disappointed when they give less than their best. When you look back with regret, and accept that at a certain point, you gave up on yourself, conceded hope, and stopped fighting. Based on this description, albeit a less than desired result, I cannot genuinely say that I’m disappointed with myself; yet, I accept that on the day, the result I was seeking simply wasn’t meant to be. Some may call this ‘fate’; I call it the simple fact that some days you’ve got it, others you don’t. Despite great preparations, you cannot force an inner confidence, calm, and the ultimate sense of preparedness; most of all, you cannot control when the body will ‘show up’ 100%. I was grateful to be back in Kona competing for the fourth time. I was excited and eager at the prospect of what the day would bring, at the opportunity to push my body and see where it may take me. But truthfully, I had some doubts. I’m not entirely sure why. I’ve been an athlete long enough to...

Kona 2013 Race Report

Sunday 20 Oct 2013
pier on race morning Welp, that was a day!  A tough, but rewarding day... The circus begins well before dawn... The swim was interesting. I had a great start, but a tactical error left me flying solo for a good portion of the swim. On the way back in, as I approached the pier, I was swallowed by the chase pack. As frustrating as that was, it was even more encouraging – I was able to get off the line much faster than I ever have before. In years past, I have had to work very hard to hold onto the chase pack. This year, although I was not with the lead girls, I was being chased by the chase pack!                         A little pre-race fun...                                    ...
