Jamie Whitmore Shares Her Life Lessons

Jamie Whitmore at the 2011 XTERRA U.S. Championships. Photo: XTERRATwo-time XTERRA world champion Jamie Whitmore shares her life lessons and future sporting plans with Glamour magazine. By the age of 31, Jamie Whitmore was the most decorated off-road triathlete of all time. That all changed within months when Jamie was stricken with cancer and told she would never be able to race again. While Whitmore was a talented athlete, competing in triathlons, racing mountain bikes, and becoming the most successful female athlete in XTERRA triathlon history with 37 wins, six national titles, and one world title—nothing compared with the battle that is cancer. There were surgeries (the removal of her left gluteus), radiation, chemotherapy, infections (including damage to the sciatic nerve), and paralysis of muscles near her ankle that left Whitmore fighting for her life. And yet, she survived. She not only survived but thrived, accepting her new reality as not enough reason to prevent her from...

New Company Launches Insole-Based Power Meter System

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David BeckerThe RMP² insoles could lead to a new generation of versatile power meters. The advancement and development of power meters may be the fastest growing gear segment in the multisport industry, and a new company called RPM² (Remote Performance Measurement and Monitoring) is aiming to revolutionize the category with an insole-based system that has sensors embedded in the inserts to monitor the distribution of pressure on the sole of each foot. Concept When used in cycling mode, the insoles provide power data for each leg and can even identify if your foot is pronating or supinating through your pedal stroke. There are several advantages to an insole-based power system (over a hub- or crank-based power meter), such as the ability to easily swap the inserts between shoes. The price—ranging from $700 to $750—also makes it one of the cheapest power-measuring products available. RPM² also has run functionality, which measures ground contact time, flight time, cadence and...

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Norsemen
Kevin Thornton and Derval Devaney claimed the Irish Middle Distance title in Athlone on Sunday as the town hosted the Middle Distance National Championships. The Championships attracted a strong field including a number of talented international athletes. Kevin Thornton would remain locked in a battle with professional racer Fraser Cartmell of Scotland with just seconds separating them after the 1.9km swim and 90km bike.

Everything An Athlete Needs To Know About Protein

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: Shutterstock.comYour questions about this essential macronutrient, answered by Lauren Antonucci, R.D. I have received several reader questions regarding protein—optimal daily intake, best sources, timing, etc.—so I’m taking this chance to tell you everything an athlete needs to know about protein. First the basics: Proteins are nitrogen-containing foods that contain different combinations of 20 amino acids. Eight of those amino acids are considered essential, meaning that our bodies cannot make them and we therefore need to consume them in foods on a regular basis. Protein intake is critical for muscle repair and synthesis as well as production of hormones, enzymes and hemoglobin, and contributes greatly to satiety (feeling of fullness) and immune function. A triathlete’s daily protein needs are higher than the USDA’s recommendation of 0.8 grams per kilogram per day. Most of us likely need 1.2–1.6 grams of protein per kilogram per day. This equals 65–83 grams for a...

Pyramid Scheme: A Track Workout For New Speed

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Jené Shaw
Photo: shuterstock.comPlanning for an “A” race later this fall? Try this simple early- to mid-season track workout for new speed. Breaking up a track session into a pyramid format not only keeps things interesting, it forces you to examine your pacing, since the way back “down” the set mirrors the way you went up. This track session from Jonathan Cane of New York City’s City Coach Multisport is one he does often during the start of race season. “In the early season I like to avoid too much ‘changing gears,’ and therefore create increased stress via distance rather than speed,” Cane says. “Later in the season I might manipulate speed rather than distance in order to increase the challenge, but in the spring or early summer, that’s probably a little aggressive for most distance folks.” RELATED: Interval Workouts To Try On The Track The Workout After a thorough warm-up (at least 10–15 minutes), do this main set on the track: 2×400 at 5K pace with 200 recovery...

Triathletes ready to storm The Bastion iron-distance triathlon at Hever Castle, Kent

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Norsemen
Triathletes from across the UK and internationally are looking forward to the next big event and inarguably the toughest challenge in the Castle Triathlon Series. All eyes will be on Hever Castle, Kent, on Sunday 12th July, for the second edition of The Bastion. A fiendishly difficult course lies in store for those who have entered, set within close proximity to London and triathlon’s heartland of the south-east. The main event, The Bastion, consists of a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42km marathon run, all of which must be completed under a time of 17 hours, and this year the event has more than doubled in size in terms of entry numbers. Also added this year will be two open water swim races and a long distance challenge aquathlon – making it the biggest Bastion yet. The event has attracted a wide range of athletes from first-timers looking to take on the mammoth distances for charity or the personal challenge, to professionals drawn by the prestigious title and £5,000 prize...

Who knows how often that chance will come around! So I took the opportunity and jetted off to Stockholm 1 week before the grand final in Edmonton. A few days before the race I caught a cold and ended up racing whilst under the weather. Because of this and the cold temperature of the water in the harbour I didn't do the course recce, or even warm up before the race. The only time I hit the water was the 750m in the race. My cold...

All roads in Boulder lead to Kona

Friday 03 Jul 2015 Tim
IMG_5529 Greetings from Boulder, Colorado – the Gateway to the Rocky Mountains! I’m here for altitude training, to clear my head and sharpen my focus on Kona 2015… and it’s good to be back! I first came to Boulder for back in 2007 and I think I’ve only missed one year since then. Basically, I love it here. It’s a good place to train, it’s awesome getting up into the mountains and there are heaps of trails to run. It doesn’t get much better than this. A bit about Boulder I think one of the reasons that I love coming to Boulder is that it reminds me a bit of Byron Bay near home – just minus the beaches. I’m staying in North Boulder, so the mountains are only a 20-minute ride away. It’s great having the ocean in summer at home and then coming over here and having the mountains in the northern summer. It’s the best of both worlds. Boulder’s had a pretty colourful history – from the Wild West stuff in the early days to the hippy days in the 60’s and 70’s. Boulder was a bit of a...

FrankfurtFünfte Teilnahme beim großen Rennen in Frankfurt – Extrem positive Erinnerungen an den Sieg im Jahr 2010 – Weltklassefeld verspricht packenden WettkampfRostock. Zum fünften Mal wird Andreas Raelert am Sonntag bei der Ironman-Europameisterschaft in Frankfurt an den Start gehen. Das Rennen in der Metropole am Main verspricht dabei, ein absoluter Höhepunkt des Triathlonsommers zu werden. „Ein Blick auf die Startliste genügt, um ein gewisses Kribbeln auszulösen", sagt Andreas Raelert, „ich denke, das gilt vor diesem großen Rennen sicherlich nicht nur für mich." Mit dem Wettkampf am Main verbindet Andreas Raelert viele positive Erinnerungen und einen großen Moment seiner Karriere, denn am 4. Juli 2010 gewann er den Ironman in Frankfurt im Alleingang. "Es war ein Tag, von dem man als Athlet träumt", erinnert er sich an das Rennen, indem er bereits nach wenigen Radkilometern an die Spitze fuhr und bis ins Ziel ein eindrucksvolles Solo zeigen konnte.

Embracing the Unknown in 2012

Tuesday 03 Jan 2012 Tyler
2011 was far from what I would have ever expected. It was a year of success, failure and utter loss. I still sit back almost every day and reflect on what this year has taught me, made me think about and made me want to change. The loss of my stepdad the day after racing [...]

The end of the journey…

Monday 10 Oct 2011 Tyler
It’s time for 2011 to come to a close.  I am not one to complain but this year has been one I could have lived without.  Much like the way I started my season in April at Texas 70.3, I ended it at Kona with an empty tank.  I don’t want anyone to feel sorry [...]

Jamie Whitmore Shares Her Life Lessons

By the age of 31, Jamie Whitmore was the most decorated off-road triathlete of all time. That all changed within months when Jamie was stricken with cancer and told she would never be able to race again. While Whitmore was a talented athlete, competing in triathlons, racing mountain bikes, and becoming the most successful female athlete in XTERRA triathlon history with 37 wins, six national titles, and one world title—nothing compared with the battle that is cancer. There were surgeries (the removal of her left gluteus), radiation, chemotherapy, infections (including damage to the sciatic nerve), and paralysis of muscles near her ankle that left Whitmore fighting for her life. And yet, she survived. She not only survived but thrived, accepting her new reality as not enough reason to prevent her from...

New Company Launches Insole-Based Power Meter System

Monday 06 Jul 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David BeckerThe RMP² insoles could lead to a new generation of versatile power meters. The advancement and development of power meters may be the fastest growing gear segment in the multisport industry, and a new company called RPM² (Remote Performance Measurement and Monitoring) is aiming to revolutionize the category with an insole-based system that has sensors embedded in the inserts to monitor the distribution of pressure on the sole of each foot. Concept When used in cycling mode, the insoles provide power data for each leg and can even identify if your foot is pronating or supinating through your pedal stroke. There are several advantages to an insole-based power system (over a hub- or crank-based power meter), such as the ability to easily swap the inserts between shoes. The price—ranging from $700 to $750—also makes it one of the cheapest power-measuring products available. RPM² also has run functionality, which measures ground contact time, flight time, cadence and...

Another Year, Another Hurdle

I realize it's been a while since I've written a blog post! With all these forms of social media at our disposal I feel like it's easy to neglect the most time consuming one. But free writing really can't be replaced with a filtered photo, 15 second video or 140 characters can it?Where to begin? Ironically, the most relevant time is right where I left off. The decision to race Stockholm last year was a pivotal moment for me, though I didn't know it at the time.I had the chance to claw my way onto podium of the World Series overall if I did well in Stockholm. Who knows how often that chance will come around! So I took the opportunity and jetted off to Stockholm 1 week before the grand final in Edmonton. A few days before the race I caught a cold and ended up racing whilst under the weather. Because of this and the cold temperature of the water in the harbour I didn't do the course recce, or even warm up before the race. The only time I hit the water was the 750m in the race. My cold...

All roads in Boulder lead to Kona

Friday 03 Jul 2015 Tim
IMG_5529 Greetings from Boulder, Colorado – the Gateway to the Rocky Mountains! I’m here for altitude training, to clear my head and sharpen my focus on Kona 2015… and it’s good to be back! I first came to Boulder for back in 2007 and I think I’ve only missed one year since then. Basically, I love it here. It’s a good place to train, it’s awesome getting up into the mountains and there are heaps of trails to run. It doesn’t get much better than this. A bit about Boulder I think one of the reasons that I love coming to Boulder is that it reminds me a bit of Byron Bay near home – just minus the beaches. I’m staying in North Boulder, so the mountains are only a 20-minute ride away. It’s great having the ocean in summer at home and then coming over here and having the mountains in the northern summer. It’s the best of both worlds. Boulder’s had a pretty colourful history – from the Wild West stuff in the early days to the hippy days in the 60’s and 70’s. Boulder was a bit of a...

FrankfurtFünfte Teilnahme beim großen Rennen in Frankfurt – Extrem positive Erinnerungen an den Sieg im Jahr 2010 – Weltklassefeld verspricht packenden WettkampfRostock. Zum fünften Mal wird Andreas Raelert am Sonntag bei der Ironman-Europameisterschaft in Frankfurt an den Start gehen. Das Rennen in der Metropole am Main verspricht dabei, ein absoluter Höhepunkt des Triathlonsommers zu werden. „Ein Blick auf die Startliste genügt, um ein gewisses Kribbeln auszulösen", sagt Andreas Raelert, „ich denke, das gilt vor diesem großen Rennen sicherlich nicht nur für mich." Mit dem Wettkampf am Main verbindet Andreas Raelert viele positive Erinnerungen und einen großen Moment seiner Karriere, denn am 4. Juli 2010 gewann er den Ironman in Frankfurt im Alleingang. "Es war ein Tag, von dem man als Athlet träumt", erinnert er sich an das Rennen, indem er bereits nach wenigen Radkilometern an die Spitze fuhr und bis ins Ziel ein eindrucksvolles Solo zeigen konnte. "Das war eines der viel...
