Dede Griesbauer 48 hours of lessons from Taiwan

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

I have been in Taiwan for about 48 hours now, and already, I have learned so much. I will, of course, have a much longer blog when my experience is over, including a culinary tour of the place, which, to put it mildly…will be exciting. But in my first 48 hours, I have been fascinated again and again and again. more

Linsey Corbin 2014 thats a wrap

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

I wanted to share that my 2014 season is in the books. I have had several notes asking if I’d be at Ironman Arizona - a staple of mine from 2009-2012. The answer is no, which is good and bad. The bad news is no, I am not racing, and that’s kind of hard. I love to race. I love that race. And I felt a bit (okay, a lot, not a bit) lack-luster after Ironman Kona. more

Q&A: Meatless protein options

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockQuestion: What are some tasty meatless protein options? Answer: As many triathletes move toward vegetarian or plant-based diets, and because the protein needs of athletes are higher than that of our less active friends, I answer this question often in my practice. Soy products—including tofu, tempeh and edamame—are high-protein meat alternatives. Tofu can be marinated and grilled, or cooked into a delicious breakfast scramble (add vegetables and salsa for flavor and fiber). Edamame is available both frozen (in the shell and already shelled) and dried for an easy snack. At 20 grams of protein per cup of tofu and 17 grams per cup of edamame, soy is a protein powerhouse. Legumes (including beans and lentils) are also high in protein. Pinto, black and kidney beans are easy to add to almost any meal, and provide 15 grams of protein per cup. Lentils come in many shapes and sizes, and at 18 grams of protein per cup, are worth trying. Azuki beans (17 grams of protein per...

Last chance to enter Ironman 70.3 UK

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
If you’re looking to race IRONMAN 70.3 UK, Exmoor, you better be quick as there are only 75 places remaining. Demand for entry into one of the toughest 70.3’s which takes place on UK soil on Sunday 28 June 2015, has never been higher, with organisers on track to close entries to this sell out event within only 7 weeks. Kevin Stewart, IRONMAN Director of Northern Europe, said, “Despite the announcement of 2 new 70.3 races this year, the demand to take part in this iconic 70.3 in Exmoor is still at an all time high. Nearly half the entrants are first timers to IRONMAN, which demonstrates just how tough our UK athletes are!” A sell out 1900 athletes will descend on Somerset for world’s first 70.3 IRONMAN, in the spectacular but challenging setting of Exmoor’s National Park. The event comprises a 1.2 mile swim in Wimbleball Lake, a 56 mile 2 lap leg bursting bike course, followed by a 13.1 mile looped half marathon multi terrain 3 lap course in and around Wimbleball lake. IRONMAN 70.3...

Buccaneer Triathlon Team takes on Epic Camp Canada

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
Nearly two years ago now Epic Camp Canada (see www.epiccamp.com for full details and daily blogs) was announced. Three members of the yet to be formed Buccaneer Triathlon Team signed up immediately. All 3 of us had heard the stories and listened to previous exploits of Epic Camp through the IM Talk podcasts. We had read the blogs and even watched the film; independently we all decided we were ready to take on the challenge for ourselves. The camp was based on cycling a point to point route from Vancouver to Calgary with the small matter of crossing the Rocky Mountains along the intended path. Alongside the planned ride for the day was the prescribed daily camp minimums of a 3km swim and a 10km run. The only reason this would change is if there were camp races such as aquathons or triathlons planned. During the camp there is a points competition, the biggest of these is to complete the minimums I have described, this is known as camp completion and is worth 20 points. Then there’s an...

Aaron Royle Chance of Victory in Noosa

Aaron Royle celebrates his victory in 2013 Credit: Eyes Wide Open Images Aaron Royle celebrates his victory in 2013 Credit: Eyes Wide Open Images Thursday, 30 October 2014 Defending Subaru Noosa Triathlon champion Aaron Royle is hell-bent on claiming his second straight title after his debut victory on the Sunshine Coast. The commonwealth Games representative is the pre-race favourite, a position solidified after his win at last weekend’s Nepean Triathlon over many of the same athletes he’ll face on Sunday. Meanwhile the 2013 women’s runner-up Ashleigh Gentle, buoyed by recent wins at Nepean and Beijing, will enter the race as an un-backable favourite following the withdrawal of defending champion Emma Moffatt who has failed to overcome a calf strain. A win in Noosa would be the perfect finish to Royle’s year, a year that saw him make his first Commonwealth Games team and earn a bronze medal to his overflowing trophy cabinet. “I feel like my form is as good this year as last year. I came off a bigger year than normal. But once I got back from North America...

5 Essential Pre-Ride Checks

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David Becker Keep your bike in ready-to-roll condition with this checklist. Being aware of the condition of your bike’s moving parts will save you time and money, as neglected parts can be pricey to replace and potentially dangerous if overlooked (think large gash in the sidewall of your tire). Run through this five-point checklist before every ride. 1. Check tire pressure. In addition to checking how much air is in your tires (it’s personal preference, but it’s best to not let tires get lower than 80–90 psi), you should also examine the shape and condition of the rubber and tread. If the tire looks squared off or if you see any cracks or gashes, it may be time for some new tires.

PRO Diary: Tim Reed’s Kona Reflections

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 Admin
run9 Tim Reed Australia’s Tim Reed raced the Ironman World Championships and crossed for a respectable 21st placing. In this edition of the PRO Diary, Reed reflects on his race and a few themes that emerged after this year’s event. Now that the dust has settled and I’ve enjoyed the relaxing process of moving house to recuperate and reflect I thought I would share what I learnt on the big Island. 1)  You don’t need to be with the front group to have a great race. Contrary to what everyone keeps telling me, I’m not convinced sticking with the front group is the only way to do well on the isle of suffering. After all, both Rinny and Kienle dictated their own power on the bike and stomped their way to victory. The sheer volume of athletes now making that front group out of the swim means there are average watts to be saved riding in the 12-metre-spaced-peloton; however, the amount of time you spend surging above threshold thanks to the accordion effect over the rolling terrain...

Coaching Update!

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 Haley
coaching At the end of last year I jumped into the world of triathlon coaching.  My very official marketing campaign! Nearly twelve months later, I’m happy to report the experience has been AMAZING! I lucked out with some truly wonderful athletes. Lauren started the year on crutches, but finished with a SUPER solid race (including the run!) at Ironman Louisville. Stephanie posted a HUGE best time at Ironman Chattanooga and Tiencia came in second OVERALL female at Great Floridian, her first ever Iron distance race in just her first year in the sport! I even got to guide Barbara “Wild One” Chandler through her final prep for her Age Group WIN at Ironman 70.3 Augusta! I am so proud of these superstar women and had the BEST time watching their hard work pay off throughout the season. I am super psyched to continue coaching in 2015. I am taking on a few new athletes, so if you’re interested, drop me a line at haleychura@gmail.com and we can chat! I can promise a very...

48 Hours of Lessons from Taiwan

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014
I have been in Taiwan for about 48 hours now, and already, I have learned so much.  I will, of course, have a much longer blog when my experience is over, including a culinary tour of the place, which, to put it mildly…will be exciting.  But in my first 48 hours, I have been fascinated again and again and again. In no particular order; Coastal and “countryside” Taiwan are stunningly beautiful.  City life?  Pretty much like some of the less scenic parts of NYC. Starbuck was a welcome site in Hong Kong after 24 hours of travel. There are more 7-11 stores in Taiwan than there are Dunkin Donuts in Massachusetts. While most 7-11 stores in the US smell like hotdogs, 7-11 stores in Taiwan do not.  I can’t say quite what the smell was…but it was like fish.  They also serve boiled duck eggs like the US stores sell Slurpees. There are hundreds of temples, many of them gorgeous.  Anthony says that they are encouraged to leave money in the temples as an offering...

MVA Racing: the last four years

Tuesday 17 Sep 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
Over these first four years of devoting myself solely to coaching (still working on getting back to my own racing tho) I've been very fortunate to have had the chance to work with a multitude of talented, driven athletes.  This has resulted in 24 athletes having qualified for the big hula dance in that time and three podium appearances and umeke bowls.  While that seems to be the standard that so many set as the goal to be obtained the fulfillment that I've gotten from it all is far more.  It's the daily interactions with my athletes both locally and around the globe.  The curiosity they have towards self improvement, the elation they experience when success is found and seeing the fruits of their labour laid out before them after a great race.  Having the chance to make a change in people's lives to improve them, to help them achieve their athletic ambitions but also to help them view the world through a different lens.  There's a reason I say my work is...

Kona 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Admin
Sometimes you cross the finish line and you almost immediately have perspective on your race. My Kona 2014 race has taken a little longer to find that.  I went in with the smoothest preparation I have had probably for any race.   I felt fit, strong and in a good place to really challenge for the win.  Missing that goal is of course disappointing but I’ve always had the attitude though that you can’t be disappointed if you put your best foot forward. So why disappointment? Finding perspective was difficult because I kept wondering “Could I have done more; physically or mentally to make myself perform better on that day?”.   I felt like I was in my best running shape going into the race.  My bike data doesn’t suggest that I rode outside myself.  I didn’t run out of energy.  Yet I didn’t run as fast as I know I can.  Of course performing to your full potential on the day that matters is a real puzzle.  There are so many factors to consider…to get it right is not a...

IM Hawaii Race Report 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  Doing my final pre-race ride. The narrow front and deeper rear wheel turned out to be the perfect combo in the wind! Photo by Tessa CapistranoI’ve always loved the Hawaii Ironman. After 10+ years in the sport, I still “buy into” all the hype on many levels.  And the race never disappoints. There is the usual carnage in the pro race. This year we had maybe 25 or 30 girls who could have finished in the Top 10. There was no room for error. Champions were brought down and others emerged.  It was epic. It always is. This is one of my fave pics of the day, Catriona and I in T1. Photo by witsup.comMy expectations going into the race were not huge. I have been around the block a few times and I know enough to know that a season that includes back-to-back Ironmans in May and a big win in August isn’t exactly a perfect set up for Kona. My expectation was simply to go out and do my thing one more time in 2014 fueled by a belief that anything can happen. On race...

Ironman Frankfurt

Sunday 06 Jul 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
Today I raced Ironman Frankfurt and came third in 8 hr 58 on a very hot day. The week had been a struggle for me to be honest. Last Sunday I had an amazing day training, then on Monday went for a recovery ride and my right leg was incredibly sore and weak. I had a massage on Tuesday and apparently I was in a bad state, very tight with transferring all around. I didn't do much training during the weak, just tried desperately to release this tension which kept changing, first my attachments at top of leg, quad, shin, butt and then the day before the race it still wasn't right I found the last point of tension was the middle of butt but I couldn't get it right for the race. It was sore in the swim, on the bike and on the run and I can barely walk now but I put together a good performance considering.In my last blog I talked about this race and the need for a separate pro start away from the age group. I contacted various people to put my point of view across that a P4000 race needs to be...

Gearing up for Europe!

Tuesday 08 Apr 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
I've got just over 2 weeks left here in New Zealand before we head away to Europe. I am super excited about racing in Europe. It could be with Benji starting Kindergarten next year that it will be our last really long trip away as a family. We were thinking of doing the US but in the end I just could not say no to Europe. I love the whole race vibe over there. It's exciting, racing is aggressive, the crowd support is just fantastic on each course and I love being able to move from country to country, from culture to culture. Heading over in early May means I can race 4 half distance races. The European women are such strong competitors and always when I first get to Europe I am a bit off the pace, but with each race I learn and get stronger and more aggressive and this is what I want in order to have one really good strong Ironman race. I will start at Challenge Rimini in Italy which will be our first time in Italy (outside of travelling through Italy on the autobahn to get to France),...

Q&A: Meatless protein options

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockQuestion: What are some tasty meatless protein options? Answer: As many triathletes move toward vegetarian or plant-based diets, and because the protein needs of athletes are higher than that of our less active friends, I answer this question often in my practice. Soy products—including tofu, tempeh and edamame—are high-protein meat alternatives. Tofu can be marinated and grilled, or cooked into a delicious breakfast scramble (add vegetables and salsa for flavor and fiber). Edamame is available both frozen (in the shell and already shelled) and dried for an easy snack. At 20 grams of protein per cup of tofu and 17 grams per cup of edamame, soy is a protein powerhouse. Legumes (including beans and lentils) are also high in protein. Pinto, black and kidney beans are easy to add to almost any meal, and provide 15 grams of protein per cup. Lentils come in many shapes and sizes, and at 18 grams of protein per cup, are worth trying. Azuki beans (17 grams of protein per...

Last chance to enter Ironman 70.3 UK

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
If you’re looking to race IRONMAN 70.3 UK, Exmoor, you better be quick as there are only 75 places remaining. Demand for entry into one of the toughest 70.3’s which takes place on UK soil on Sunday 28 June 2015, has never been higher, with organisers on track to close entries to this sell out event within only 7 weeks. Kevin Stewart, IRONMAN Director of Northern Europe, said, “Despite the announcement of 2 new 70.3 races this year, the demand to take part in this iconic 70.3 in Exmoor is still at an all time high. Nearly half the entrants are first timers to IRONMAN, which demonstrates just how tough our UK athletes are!” A sell out 1900 athletes will descend on Somerset for world’s first 70.3 IRONMAN, in the spectacular but challenging setting of Exmoor’s National Park. The event comprises a 1.2 mile swim in Wimbleball Lake, a 56 mile 2 lap leg bursting bike course, followed by a 13.1 mile looped half marathon multi terrain 3 lap course in and around Wimbleball lake. IRONMAN 70.3...

Buccaneer Triathlon Team takes on Epic Camp Canada

Thursday 30 Oct 2014 Paul Moore
Nearly two years ago now Epic Camp Canada (see www.epiccamp.com for full details and daily blogs) was announced. Three members of the yet to be formed Buccaneer Triathlon Team signed up immediately. All 3 of us had heard the stories and listened to previous exploits of Epic Camp through the IM Talk podcasts. We had read the blogs and even watched the film; independently we all decided we were ready to take on the challenge for ourselves. The camp was based on cycling a point to point route from Vancouver to Calgary with the small matter of crossing the Rocky Mountains along the intended path. Alongside the planned ride for the day was the prescribed daily camp minimums of a 3km swim and a 10km run. The only reason this would change is if there were camp races such as aquathons or triathlons planned. During the camp there is a points competition, the biggest of these is to complete the minimums I have described, this is known as camp completion and is worth 20 points. Then there’s an...

Aaron Royle Chance of Victory in Noosa

Aaron Royle celebrates his victory in 2013 Credit: Eyes Wide Open Images Aaron Royle celebrates his victory in 2013 Credit: Eyes Wide Open Images Thursday, 30 October 2014 Defending Subaru Noosa Triathlon champion Aaron Royle is hell-bent on claiming his second straight title after his debut victory on the Sunshine Coast. The commonwealth Games representative is the pre-race favourite, a position solidified after his win at last weekend’s Nepean Triathlon over many of the same athletes he’ll face on Sunday. Meanwhile the 2013 women’s runner-up Ashleigh Gentle, buoyed by recent wins at Nepean and Beijing, will enter the race as an un-backable favourite following the withdrawal of defending champion Emma Moffatt who has failed to overcome a calf strain. A win in Noosa would be the perfect finish to Royle’s year, a year that saw him make his first Commonwealth Games team and earn a bronze medal to his overflowing trophy cabinet. “I feel like my form is as good this year as last year. I came off a bigger year than normal. But once I got back from North America...

Coaching Update!

Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 Haley
coaching At the end of last year I jumped into the world of triathlon coaching.  My very official marketing campaign! Nearly twelve months later, I’m happy to report the experience has been AMAZING! I lucked out with some truly wonderful athletes. Lauren started the year on crutches, but finished with a SUPER solid race (including the run!) at Ironman Louisville. Stephanie posted a HUGE best time at Ironman Chattanooga and Tiencia came in second OVERALL female at Great Floridian, her first ever Iron distance race in just her first year in the sport! I even got to guide Barbara “Wild One” Chandler through her final prep for her Age Group WIN at Ironman 70.3 Augusta! I am so proud of these superstar women and had the BEST time watching their hard work pay off throughout the season. I am super psyched to continue coaching in 2015. I am taking on a few new athletes, so if you’re interested, drop me a line at haleychura@gmail.com and we can chat! I can promise a very...

48 Hours of Lessons from Taiwan

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014
I have been in Taiwan for about 48 hours now, and already, I have learned so much.  I will, of course, have a much longer blog when my experience is over, including a culinary tour of the place, which, to put it mildly…will be exciting.  But in my first 48 hours, I have been fascinated again and again and again. In no particular order; Coastal and “countryside” Taiwan are stunningly beautiful.  City life?  Pretty much like some of the less scenic parts of NYC. Starbuck was a welcome site in Hong Kong after 24 hours of travel. There are more 7-11 stores in Taiwan than there are Dunkin Donuts in Massachusetts. While most 7-11 stores in the US smell like hotdogs, 7-11 stores in Taiwan do not.  I can’t say quite what the smell was…but it was like fish.  They also serve boiled duck eggs like the US stores sell Slurpees. There are hundreds of temples, many of them gorgeous.  Anthony says that they are encouraged to leave money in the temples as an offering...

MVA Racing: the last four years

Tuesday 17 Sep 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
Over these first four years of devoting myself solely to coaching (still working on getting back to my own racing tho) I've been very fortunate to have had the chance to work with a multitude of talented, driven athletes.  This has resulted in 24 athletes having qualified for the big hula dance in that time and three podium appearances and umeke bowls.  While that seems to be the standard that so many set as the goal to be obtained the fulfillment that I've gotten from it all is far more.  It's the daily interactions with my athletes both locally and around the globe.  The curiosity they have towards self improvement, the elation they experience when success is found and seeing the fruits of their labour laid out before them after a great race.  Having the chance to make a change in people's lives to improve them, to help them achieve their athletic ambitions but also to help them view the world through a different lens.  There's a reason I say my work is...

And that’s a wrap…
