Setting Time Goals For A Half-Ironman

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: Vanessa Belfiore / Shutterstock.comDear Coach: How do I set time goals for my next half-Ironman? How many times have you heard coaches tell athletes that they should avoid setting time-based goals? I’m going to echo those words of advice but appreciate that it is human nature to want to do it. Here are some general guidelines to ensure you are setting your day up for success. The Swim It is very, very difficult to set a swim goal time as conditions change, buoys move, navigation accuracy can vary and you may or may not get a draft. Bottom line: Setting a swim time goal can give you a false sense of satisfaction (or disappointment) when you exit the swim. You are better off learning the feel for a pace that is appropriate for the distance. A simple test is to go to the pool, get warmed up and perform a max effort 400 time trial (with fairly even pacing). As a rough guide, your half-Ironman pace would likely be around 5–8 seconds per 100 slower than your 400 time for beginner to...

Instead of having to turn away from the road to look at your bar-mounted computer or a watch, the Recon Jet displays the same information in your peripherals. Think of it as a triathlon training watch built into a pair of glasses—a quick glance and your workout metrics are in plain view. Although Jet isn’t exactly low profile, it doesn’t obstruct vision dramatically when riding or running. Intuitive controls make it easy to operate on the fly. Key training data is tracked and recorded by the device itself (no phone needed), but it also connects to a phone to display texts, control music and more.

Back Pain Treatment, Exercises And Prevention

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: iStock Nothing can derail your training like back pain—address the weaknesses at the source to avoid unnecessary downtime and discomfort. The Symptoms Muscular back pain usually comes on instantly. Pain radiates from both sides of the spine and the muscles feel as though they’re locked up. It can be severe and debilitating. What’s Going On In There? Muscular back pain is the most common type of back pain. It involves the paraspinal muscles, which are strong muscles on either side of the spine that enable you to move, twist and bend the spine. So what brings on the pain? In general, the paraspinous muscles are too tight, too weak or both. A sudden twisting or wrenching, bending forward, and even a direct impact on the muscle can set it off.

Buffalo Springs & Racine 70.3: Nuggets of Gold

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Admin
20150718_162851_resized The past two races were slow to get put into writing. Sometimes you have those events whereby while you’re proud of the effort, the result in your opinion is just ‘meh’. That is how I feel about both Buffalo Springs and Racine 70.3. That said, there was a similarity in both races which is something I am proud of and that is the attitude I managed to maintain throughout and how it helped get me to the finish line; in what I feel are less than stellar 3rd and 4th places, but in reality are nothing to hang my head about. Both events, I went in rested and with a strong desire and excitement to race. I’ve done them both a few times in the past, and each one brings back great memories from when I was still cutting my teeth at the 70.3 distance. I knew I would have to swim strong and back it with a solid bike to be able to use my run for a top slot. While neither race was too large (about 8 women in Lubbock and ~20 in Racine), they both had quality fields. So nothing would come easy; but...

2015 Ironman Canada

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
bike riding IMC This quote sums up my 2nd place debut Ironman Canada performance and why I am so happy with what happened but hungry, motivated and determined for more: “A win doesn't feel as good as a loss feels bad, and the good feeling doesn't last as long as the bad. Not even close.” – Andre Agassi Coming that close to winning my first Ironman was insane.  But losing the race that late in the race leaves me with the belief that I could maybe win an Ironman.  I don’t know that I truly thought I could win Sunday.  I don’t really feel “bad” about anything on Sunday because I truly gave my best on the day.  The fact I made some mistakes and didn’t win means there is still unfinished business and I am so glad.  It is what drives us. Danielle Mack executed a super strong race under terrible conditions to win her second Ironman.  Although I love a lot of the girls I race against- because they are amazing people I admire so much- having a former XTERRA age group World Champ...

I’m on the Rivet and loving it

Monday 27 Jul 2015 Tim
Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 5.42.16 pm I’m excited to be talking about the new helmet that’s protecting my noggin, because my association with Giant goes back a long way. They’ve kept me at the front of the pack when it comes to state-of-the-art, cutting-edge bikes and now they’re doing the same with my helmet. The Rivet TT is the result of Giant’s commitment to investing time, energy and expertise into helmet design. And it’s a beauty. It’s their most aerodynamic helmet yet – tuned using a process called Computational Fluid Dynamics and tested extensively in the wind tunnel and in real-life on the heads of the Team-Giant-Alpecin pro riders. Keeping cool in the mountains I’m currently in Boulder, Colorado for altitude training and the Rivet TT is what I’m rocking through the Rockies… All puns aside, the new helmet is working out well in training and I think it’s going to be great for Kona. The strategically placed dimples on the helmet improve laminar flow and the ‘drag-neutral’ ports and internal channels do a great job...

Conrad Stoltz’s Fatbike beach riding Adventure – video

Monday 27 Jul 2015 Conrad
I LOVE adventure! Which, after a few laps too many around the athletics track, is what drew me to triathlon at age 14. Two decades later, that same “Adventure” also drew me to XTERRA. This video is about me (Conrad Stoltz aka The Caveman) taking my FatBoy on a beach Adventure along the South African South Coast. (Brenton-on-Sea to Sedgefield and back- 53km in 5h10) Stunning scenery, challenging coastal terrain, the rising tide (nearly got swept out to sea) and riding & crashing off a dune because of darkness… Plenty of adventure! The ride was made possible by the amazingly capable Specialized Fatboy Pro: A Fatbike with 4.6inch (12cm) wide tyres, ridden at super low pressure, which allows you to ride terrain never thought ride-able. Tyre pressure: 6-12psi (0.4 -.08bar) depending if its firm or soft beach sand. The ride is recorded on my GPS enabled SUUNTO Ambit3. Check out my “big ride, incl 120min at Tempo” ride details and flyover movie on Movescount:...

July Update

Monday 27 Jul 2015 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
We are back now in New Zealand. It is the middle of winter, but I think we have been pretty lucky with our timing, it has been quite lovely. I can never really believe that this is winter in the North Island, having lived in Christchurch my whole life, winters were a lot tougher. It has definitely meant adjusting from coming home from a Germany in a heat wave has not been such a shock! I had a pretty relaxed couple of weeks (training wise, still plenty of house renovations being done) and then this week I have started with a new coach, Kristian from TriSpecific Kristian has been quite a mentor these last couple of months, getting my gut health back on track, which I will be eternally grateful for as I can only but say it has been life changing for me. And I promise I will be writing a series of a few blogs soon outlining the changes we have made. I say we as my husband and son as well have made changes to the way they are eating, and I have been taking notes on changes to all...

70.3 Racine – 3rd

Sunday 26 Jul 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
20150318-DSC_2377-2 This was the fourth time in my career that I was pulling the Ironman/half ironman double and every time I have finished better in the second race. I was hoping that this trend would continue. Unlike most of the times in the past I felt ready as race day neared and not wasted from the weekend before. When the cannon fired I was ready to race. The level of competition in the field looked to be hotter than the weather forecast. Sanders, Chrabot, Griffin, Cunningham, (Drew) Scott, Hanson, & Giardini…one thing was for sure, the bike was going to be blistering fast. We all did a partial dolphin dive at 7am when the cannon fired and quickly we were strung out single file. Giardini first then a small gap to Chrabot followed by Andrew Nielson with Drew Scott & I wrestling for his toes. After 200 meters of this I eased up and gave Drew Nielson’s feet and faded behind Drew. Next thing I know he let a gap open up, are you kidding me. Damn me for being nice. I busted around Drew and spent...

Summer in the Mountains

Saturday 25 Jul 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Donna Phelan)
I've been in Boulder now for almost 6 weeks, and training has been going great so far. I switched coaches this year to be coached by Julie Dibens, and it's been great to be back in a group environment having regular contact with a coach and training with other athletes who are working hard day in and day out.A couple of weeks ago, I did the 5km Carter Lake Crossing and came 4th in the women - one place out of winning money, but a great swim workout. Swimming 5k in a pool with regular breaks is really different than swimming open water in a race and always hoping that the other side of the lake is not tooooo far off!The bike training in Boulder is also amazing. There are no shortage of open roads or long mountain climbs, and I love heading off on my bike knowing that I can do a 4 or 5 hour ride and not have any traffic lights. Riding up on the Peak to Peak Highway at 10,000 ft of elevation or climbing up to Estes Park at 7,500 ft are two rides that I'll never get tired of.

Tri Camp-ing and some news!!

Friday 24 Apr 2015 Hillarybiscay
unnamed-9 As promised, I have finally sat down to share some of our spring Tucson Camp highlights here! This was the first year we were able to offer not just one but two weekends of smashfest fun. There really is nothing I love more than being able to work with my athletes in person (and smash myself alongside them!) so camp is always a highlight of my year. Our camps are open to athletes who are not part of TeamHPB as well so we also get the pleasure of getting to know new athletes and including them in our group for the weekend. Our “kids” are always very welcoming and watching the athletes bond as a group through shared pain and suffering is such a highlight. We do even include designated “social” bikes and runs besides those of the smashfest variety. On Saturday everyone sets some kind of new precedent in the pool–for longest or hardest swim ever. We have different lanes for different challenges but my main concern is that everyone emerges having proved...

Setting Time Goals For A Half-Ironman

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: Vanessa Belfiore / Shutterstock.comDear Coach: How do I set time goals for my next half-Ironman? How many times have you heard coaches tell athletes that they should avoid setting time-based goals? I’m going to echo those words of advice but appreciate that it is human nature to want to do it. Here are some general guidelines to ensure you are setting your day up for success. The Swim It is very, very difficult to set a swim goal time as conditions change, buoys move, navigation accuracy can vary and you may or may not get a draft. Bottom line: Setting a swim time goal can give you a false sense of satisfaction (or disappointment) when you exit the swim. You are better off learning the feel for a pace that is appropriate for the distance. A simple test is to go to the pool, get warmed up and perform a max effort 400 time trial (with fairly even pacing). As a rough guide, your half-Ironman pace would likely be around 5–8 seconds per 100 slower than your 400 time for beginner to...

Buffalo Springs & Racine 70.3: Nuggets of Gold

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Admin
20150718_162851_resized The past two races were slow to get put into writing. Sometimes you have those events whereby while you’re proud of the effort, the result in your opinion is just ‘meh’. That is how I feel about both Buffalo Springs and Racine 70.3. That said, there was a similarity in both races which is something I am proud of and that is the attitude I managed to maintain throughout and how it helped get me to the finish line; in what I feel are less than stellar 3rd and 4th places, but in reality are nothing to hang my head about. Both events, I went in rested and with a strong desire and excitement to race. I’ve done them both a few times in the past, and each one brings back great memories from when I was still cutting my teeth at the 70.3 distance. I knew I would have to swim strong and back it with a solid bike to be able to use my run for a top slot. While neither race was too large (about 8 women in Lubbock and ~20 in Racine), they both had quality fields. So nothing would come easy; but...

2015 Ironman Canada

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
bike riding IMC This quote sums up my 2nd place debut Ironman Canada performance and why I am so happy with what happened but hungry, motivated and determined for more: “A win doesn't feel as good as a loss feels bad, and the good feeling doesn't last as long as the bad. Not even close.” – Andre Agassi Coming that close to winning my first Ironman was insane.  But losing the race that late in the race leaves me with the belief that I could maybe win an Ironman.  I don’t know that I truly thought I could win Sunday.  I don’t really feel “bad” about anything on Sunday because I truly gave my best on the day.  The fact I made some mistakes and didn’t win means there is still unfinished business and I am so glad.  It is what drives us. Danielle Mack executed a super strong race under terrible conditions to win her second Ironman.  Although I love a lot of the girls I race against- because they are amazing people I admire so much- having a former XTERRA age group World Champ...

I’m on the Rivet and loving it

Monday 27 Jul 2015 Tim
Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 5.42.16 pm I’m excited to be talking about the new helmet that’s protecting my noggin, because my association with Giant goes back a long way. They’ve kept me at the front of the pack when it comes to state-of-the-art, cutting-edge bikes and now they’re doing the same with my helmet. The Rivet TT is the result of Giant’s commitment to investing time, energy and expertise into helmet design. And it’s a beauty. It’s their most aerodynamic helmet yet – tuned using a process called Computational Fluid Dynamics and tested extensively in the wind tunnel and in real-life on the heads of the Team-Giant-Alpecin pro riders. Keeping cool in the mountains I’m currently in Boulder, Colorado for altitude training and the Rivet TT is what I’m rocking through the Rockies… All puns aside, the new helmet is working out well in training and I think it’s going to be great for Kona. The strategically placed dimples on the helmet improve laminar flow and the ‘drag-neutral’ ports and internal channels do a great job...

Conrad Stoltz’s Fatbike beach riding Adventure – video

Monday 27 Jul 2015 Conrad
I LOVE adventure! Which, after a few laps too many around the athletics track, is what drew me to triathlon at age 14. Two decades later, that same “Adventure” also drew me to XTERRA. This video is about me (Conrad Stoltz aka The Caveman) taking my FatBoy on a beach Adventure along the South African South Coast. (Brenton-on-Sea to Sedgefield and back- 53km in 5h10) Stunning scenery, challenging coastal terrain, the rising tide (nearly got swept out to sea) and riding & crashing off a dune because of darkness… Plenty of adventure! The ride was made possible by the amazingly capable Specialized Fatboy Pro: A Fatbike with 4.6inch (12cm) wide tyres, ridden at super low pressure, which allows you to ride terrain never thought ride-able. Tyre pressure: 6-12psi (0.4 -.08bar) depending if its firm or soft beach sand. The ride is recorded on my GPS enabled SUUNTO Ambit3. Check out my “big ride, incl 120min at Tempo” ride details and flyover movie on Movescount:...

July Update

Monday 27 Jul 2015 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
We are back now in New Zealand. It is the middle of winter, but I think we have been pretty lucky with our timing, it has been quite lovely. I can never really believe that this is winter in the North Island, having lived in Christchurch my whole life, winters were a lot tougher. It has definitely meant adjusting from coming home from a Germany in a heat wave has not been such a shock! I had a pretty relaxed couple of weeks (training wise, still plenty of house renovations being done) and then this week I have started with a new coach, Kristian from TriSpecific Kristian has been quite a mentor these last couple of months, getting my gut health back on track, which I will be eternally grateful for as I can only but say it has been life changing for me. And I promise I will be writing a series of a few blogs soon outlining the changes we have made. I say we as my husband and son as well have made changes to the way they are eating, and I have been taking notes on changes to all...
