Nutrition On Long Bike Rides

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Triathlete.com
Q: With the warmer weather finally here, I’m taking my long rides outside. How should I be approaching my on-the-bike hydration? A: The first step is to assess your fluid needs. Test and know your sweat rate (the average is 24–32 ounces an hour, or at least one bottle per hour), then determine how much fluid you will need to carry for a race. Find out the specifics for your race; for example, sprint tris often do not supply fluid on the bike course, so you’ll need to carry your own. Olympic-distance races may have one, two (or no) bottle refill stations, so you’ll need to carry enough fluid to either complete your race, or make it between aid stations. Next, address your bike frame size and setup to determine how much fluid you can hold and where you can stash it. For example, my tri bike can only hold one bottle cage on my downtube; larger bikes can hold two. Aerobars allow for front-mount bottles you can reach and drink while staying in the aero position. Rear-mount...

How Can I Make My Transitions Faster?

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Paul Moore
Transition at Challenge Bahrain. Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images for Challenge Triathlon Transition at Challenge Bahrain. Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images for Challenge Triathlon Coach Kathleeen Johnson provides some basic tips for keeping your transition times to a minimum. Keep your transition area simple and clutter-free. Only set out the gear you need to use, and stash everything else back in your transition bag. You should easily be able to set everything up in an area the size of a hand towel. Organize your things in the order you will use them, with cycling gear in front of your running gear. Lay things out so it takes as few motions as possible to put them on. Place your helmet upside down with the back end facing away from you on the ground beside your bike or balanced on your handlebars. Have the straps open and tangle free. Open your sunglasses and put them inside your upturned helmet. Whether or not you do a flying mount, keep your cycling shoe straps open for quick entry, and...

Sessions To Supercharge Your 90-Minute Rides

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Paul Moore
Want to get the heart pumping? These bang-for-your-buck workouts are perfect for your midweek ride or as part of your weekend long ride. 3×16-Kilometre Descending Intervals Pick a course that’s about eight kilometres in one direction without traffic lights or signals. You’ll use it as a 16-kilometre out- and-back. Goal: To refine your pacing skills. You’ll chop your time with every16-kilometre interval. “Pacing is everything,” says coach Dave Pruetz. “If you go out too fast, you may fail to get progressively faster.” The Workout • First out-and-back: Ride at an average pace (Zone 2) and time yourself. Rest 3–5 minutes. • Second out-and-back: Pick up your pace (Zone 3) and beat your first time. The trick is to not beat yourself by too much because the third set will be the hardest. Rest 3–5 minutes. • Third out-and-back: Get your pace up even more (Zone 4 or time-trial pace) and beat your second time. Cool down by spinning easy for 10 minutes. Toggle Session Coach Greg Mueller uses...

The Road To The Woodlands. Redux.

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Noreply@blogger.com (rappstar)
it's by no means perfect, but it helps tell the story... I wrote a long post in 2015 about my preparation for IMTX. At the time, I think I was trying to reassure myself, since when I wrote it, I was at the beginning of what turned out to be a pretty bad downward spiral. I finished 9th (worst ever) at Wildflower. Then I DNF'ed IMTX about 40 miles into the bike. I struggled with insomnia,

Challenge Fuerteventura

Thursday 28 Apr 2016 Will
swim I’m really happy, and relieved to be sitting here in Fuerteventura on my post race ‘Over Drive’ training camp with a close 2nd place finish in Challenge Fuerteventura under my belt and as a result confidence back where it needs to be to be successful in this game.   It’s only 2nd place, I’ve had many of these before in 1/2 distance races and it becomes more and more apparent to me that the guy who wins these is half of the time the person who is willing to go to a different level of hurt to elk out that last 30 seconds. I don’t think that there was that much difference between myself and Andi Bocherer in the race so congrats to him for the win. This was a training race and a process goal for me heading into Ironman Brazil next month and I just didn’t quite have that smark and race fitness to jump the gap and take the win. I arrived the week before the race, it’s such an easy place to base yourself with a short flight with easy...

South Africa

Thursday 25 Feb 2016 Will
team photo Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well. At the moment I’m sitting in my apartment with my feet up in South Africa trying to ride out a bit of illness picked up somehow/somewhere. I’m not sure what it is with this place. I really love it, the weather is unbeatable, you have amazing food and wine, natural beauty, good friends. 24 Rand to the £ also helps but I do find it super hard here to put in the work. I’m off home next week back to my house in Leicestershire where I hope to get my consistency back that I had before I came out here with the Charnwood Riot. In general the winter has gone pretty much perfectly to plan, I’ve had a couple of great camps in Lanzarote at Sands Beach including our annual team camp. It was amazing to catch up with the gang again, and of course receive all the amazing new product from our top sponsors. Big thanks to the Wolfs for organising another great few years for the team, I’m excited to be part of it. At the end of...

Winter training, Laurent Vidal, Sands Beach.

Saturday 05 Dec 2015 Will
laurent All in all it’s been a fairly decent start to my winter training. I had around 8 weeks of un-interrupted training with the Luc Van Lierde programme and I was chuffed because I didn’t miss a thing and I was going pretty well as a result of it. I took a trip to Belgium to visit Luc and we did some lactate testing for Swim, Bike and Run and actually we identified that even after a 13 week lay off aerobically I was still in pretty good shape but my max lactate was low and that is what i’ve been working on since. So not heaps of volume and some quite intense training to get that back up. I’m now in Lanzarote for a 17 day camp at home from home, Sands Beach. Weather wise it’s a solid 20-25’c, the warmest possible in Europe at this time of year. I really love it here. 25m pool literally on my door step, great riding in the mountains and some interesting off road running. It has everything you need and now i’ve been here so often I know the island and many people on the island to make it...

Enjoying the time off

Wednesday 05 Aug 2015 Will
poppy ride pic I’ve enjoyed this first 4 weeks away from sport. Nothing that exciting so far, just hanging out with my family and I just payed a visit to legendary Irish Triathlete Conor Murphy and family who’s also been struggling this year, thanks to shitty coaching and support. Nice to compare notes! Slowly but surely I’m starting to get bored and more and more determined to get back into it but that’s not for a while longer yet. I have to say it’s really nice to be able to step away and take the time and gain perspective to analyse all the little things I’ve been struggling with that led me to need a career break.  Triathlon is quite tough and I’ve had my foot firmly on the gas ever since I was a junior, rejuvenating the mind and body again is really important if I want to go on for another successful 5/6 years. When you’re in the thick of racing and training you’re so focused on the work that it can be a struggle to notice the aspects...

Taking some time out

Thursday 09 Jul 2015 Will
Biking in the hot Canary Islands sun! Well it’s been an interesting and un-expected end to this first part of the year that’s for sure. I knew that things were not going well for me this year for some reason. I felt like my training was going quite well, perhaps quite inconsistent but on the whole I didn’t see much problem with my fitness. Which left me and my team baffled when I was posting results like 30th in Dubai, 8th in Lanzarote Ironman, 4th in Staffordshire 70.3 and then a DNF in Norway 70.3. Coming from someone relatively consistent, that’s a bad start to the season! You’ll usually blame this on your training and race form. If you’re strict with yourself you’ll knock off a race or two and take a week off to freshen up the body before building back probably with even more effort then before! After Norway 70.3 I wanted to cancel my plans to race in Bolton Ironman, I just couldn’t imagine the idea of getting around that race. Ironman isn’t a joke. It’s a...

Debut Ironman Experience – Lanzarote

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Will
sands beach crew Well, I can officially call myself an Ironman I guess, what a huge day trip that was in Lanzarote. I felt like preparation went ok for my debut Ironman. I can’t say I was in top shape at all, just didn’t have the time to get that, lets say I was inconsistently good!  I personally thought it was enough to get a good result here but not this time. The swim was fine, I didn’t know what to expect from a 3.8k swim, I thought it’d probably bore the hell out of me but actually it went very quickly and wasn’t too bad! It was almost backstoke-able at times so really it was more of a warm up for what was to come. Pointer to all the athletes who raced! Did you see that GIANT Manta Ray that swam under us? T1 went smoothly and we spit the pack into 2 groups. I was with some strong guys and to be honest they were riding a bit too hard for my liking. I had the aim of finishing the bike with 285w best case scenario. 280w maybe more realistic. That meant probably being on...

The 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championship will be a two-day event, like the 2017 edition—with the professional women and age-group women racing on one day and the professional men and age-group men racing on the other. “The Ironman 70.3 triathlon series has grown exponentially over the past few years, with the World Championship featuring the best athletes from around the world,” said Andrew Messick, Chief Executive Officer of Ironman in the press release. “We have been extremely pleased with the global rotation of the event and providing our athletes with an exceptional world-class race in...

The Road To The Woodlands. Redux.

it's by no means perfect, but it helps tell the story... I wrote a long post in 2015 about my preparation for IMTX. At the time, I think I was trying to reassure myself, since when I wrote it, I was at the beginning of what turned out to be a pretty bad downward spiral. I finished 9th (worst ever) at Wildflower. Then I DNF'ed IMTX about 40 miles into the bike. I struggled with insomnia,

Heyo CRAZY ASS FANS! Another spring is upon us, which means April showers bring May….Wildflowers. 6 years ago at Wildflower, I pulled into Wildflower with Matt in the #ManVan, and unnoticed #87 on the start list. When I drove into Lake San Antonio this morning, I was immediately recognized by the women letting people into . . . → Read More: Wildflower 2016 Preview

Challenge Fuerteventura

Thursday 28 Apr 2016 Will
swim I’m really happy, and relieved to be sitting here in Fuerteventura on my post race ‘Over Drive’ training camp with a close 2nd place finish in Challenge Fuerteventura under my belt and as a result confidence back where it needs to be to be successful in this game.   It’s only 2nd place, I’ve had many of these before in 1/2 distance races and it becomes more and more apparent to me that the guy who wins these is half of the time the person who is willing to go to a different level of hurt to elk out that last 30 seconds. I don’t think that there was that much difference between myself and Andi Bocherer in the race so congrats to him for the win. This was a training race and a process goal for me heading into Ironman Brazil next month and I just didn’t quite have that smark and race fitness to jump the gap and take the win. I arrived the week before the race, it’s such an easy place to base yourself with a short flight with easy...

South Africa

team photo Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well. At the moment I’m sitting in my apartment with my feet up in South Africa trying to ride out a bit of illness picked up somehow/somewhere. I’m not sure what it is with this place. I really love it, the weather is unbeatable, you have amazing food and wine, natural beauty, good friends. 24 Rand to the £ also helps but I do find it super hard here to put in the work. I’m off home next week back to my house in Leicestershire where I hope to get my consistency back that I had before I came out here with the Charnwood Riot. In general the winter has gone pretty much perfectly to plan, I’ve had a couple of great camps in Lanzarote at Sands Beach including our annual team camp. It was amazing to catch up with the gang again, and of course receive all the amazing new product from our top sponsors. Big thanks to the Wolfs for organising another great few years for the team, I’m excited to be part of it. At the end of...
