I flew from 11 hours from Maui to Honolulu to Auckland, laid over 7 hours, then flew 8 hours to Perth on November the 1st -hoping to start my Australian campaign at the Aussie Championship in Mandurah. Unfortunately, that much time in the germ tube and airports meant that by my second day in Australia I went down for the count.

6 Laundry Detergents Made For Athletic Apparel

Friday 21 Nov 2014 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David BeckerExtend the life of your (expensive!) training clothes with these detergents formulated specifically for athletic apparel. Apart from using a sport-specific detergent, there are several other important steps to remember when washing your technical fabrics. These fabrics need to be treated with extra care in order to help maintain their integrity and functionality. Wash your clothing with cold water and air dry any synthetic fabrics, advises Julie Gabay, owner of Pacific Swim Bike Run in Connecticut. Putting spandex in the dryer will accelerate the breakdown of the thread and lead to shrinking of the garment. When it comes to pesky grease stains and washing schedules, Stephanie Swanson, owner of SOAS endurance clothing, recommends using dish soap as a degreaser prior to washing your clothing. This will break up the grease and allow it to get rinsed out during the wash cycle. Wash your spandex and technical fabrics quickly after use. If you cannot put them in the...

Hill Repeats You’re Not Sick Of

Friday 21 Nov 2014 Jené Shaw
Photo: Shutterstock.com Hill workouts are the most sport-specific strength training you can do for running. But not all repeats need to be “Run up this hill. Jog down.” Here are a few new ideas from USAT-certified coaches to mix up your next set of repeats. Iron-Distance Power Repeats Benefits: Builds run-specific strength for longer events. • Warm up for 2 miles on flat roads or in the grass. Do a few strides and dynamic stretches. • Find a steep hill that’s about a half-mile long. Run up hard four times and recover with a walk or jog down. Don’t rest at the bottom; just blast right back to the top. • Rest three to five minutes. • Run 2 miles on a flat road with the same power output as you did on the hill. • Rest three to five minutes. • Cool down with an easy 10-minute jog. Total distance: about 9 miles, depending on pace Do this workout once a week, every other week and try to do 6x hill repeats the following session. –Bob Mitera of Kokua Multisports, LLC in Barrington,...

Using Ozone in Medical Treatment

Thursday 13 Nov 2014 Lesley
Rehab and treatment for injury march to the beat of their own drum. And sometimes, especially with athletic injuries, everything is far from being simply black and white. To make matters even more complex, often what seems to work best for one athlete, doesn’t work well at all for the next. One thing is sure though, mainstream medicine definitely doesn’t have all the answers. Sometimes you have to encompass medical techniques and technologies that are not mainstream. For example, 30 years ago acupuncture, although a staple diet in the Far East for thousands of years, was barely on the radar in the West. Now though it is often seen as borderline mainstream in Western medicine. In my painfully extensive rehab experience, one technology that keeps coming up is the use of ozone, which is an oxidizer. Apart from purifying water, ozone can also be used to destroy parasites and bacteria – two things that I’m unwittingly through personal experience becoming an expert on! Ozone is produced by a...

FAST & FURIOUS IN OCEANSIDE

Friday 31 Oct 2014 Luke McKenzie
photo (14) I enjoyed jumping in the final race of Lifetime Fitness series in Oceanside this past weekend. It was awesome to have such a high profile race so close to home and it was a great opportunity to utilize some post Kona fitness. Well … I was more “hoping” the fitness was still there. I hadn’t really done much training since Hawaii but I know in the past I seem to carry good form for a week or two after Ironman so it was worth a shot. Much to the theme of this year my swim wasn’t in front group which meant I had to ride my way back into the race. I felt really strong on the bike and by the time I racked my Scott Plasma 5 I was in 3rd place having recorded the second fastest bike split. The fatigue from Kona was still definitely in my legs on the run and the twisty, turny, up and down nature of the course wasn’t all that kind on tired legs but I stayed strong and was happy to finish a respectable 9th in a very strong short course field.
