Jan Frodeno stamped his ticket to Kona with a second place finish at Ironman Lanzarote on Sunday.

It was only in the last third of the run leg that eventual winner Jesse Thomas took the lead and then the win. more

Monday 23 May 2016 [Triathlon News]

The Swiss women's champion impresses while the Swedish men’s champion strikes late. Smart tactics pay off a lot in long-distance events. Swede Patrik Nilsson was working hard for the win at IRONMAN 70.3 Barcelona, but moreover, was waiting long for the right moment to make his move. When Guillem Rojas (ESP) led the men’s pro field out of the water in 23:25, Nilsson was in 11th, but only 11 seconds behind and already in the mix. more

What Happened to GPS Coverage of the Pro Races?

Thursday 26 May 2016 Thorsten
OldTracker In January 2015 Ironman announced enhanced race coverage of major races, including GPS tracking devices feeding into a new athlete tracking platform (see my post looking at the details). This post looks at the progress Ironman has made during last year and where things are for this season. 2015 Season GPS tracking was off to a slow start. At the Regional Championships Pros were given a tracker that they had to carry on the bike and run. The following photo shows the tracker on the left compared to an iPhone 5 (the photo doesn’t show that the tracker is about three times as thick as an iPhone): The Pros had to carry the devices, but for the first Regionals the information was not made publicly available. If you knew where to look, you could see “dots on a map” on a “semi-secret” site by Quarq, the manufacturer of the devices. Towards the second half of the season (as far as I know starting with IM Frankfurt but also for 70.3 Championships and Kona) the...

Should You Try Cryotherapy For Recovery?

Thursday 26 May 2016 Triathlete.com
An extreme version of an ice bath, cryotherapy chambers are becoming an en vogue recovery method for athletes of every ilk, from LeBron James to Justin Gatlin. The idea behind cryotherapy is that brief exposure to sub-zero dry air vapors—reaching anywhere between 160 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit below zero—can help prompt a circulatory response that decreases inflammation and improves recovery. Research has indeed shown that runners report being less sore after workouts when they utilize cryotherapy. Donna Phelan, a professional triathlete based out of Encinitas, Calif., has experienced the positive effects of this recovery method firsthand. “I definitely felt more refreshed and energetic after the sessions and felt that I recovered faster for the following day’s training,” she says. “I had a bit of a hamstring injury at the time, and I can’t say for sure if the cryotherapy made a difference or not, but it definitely helped with recovery on a day-to-day basis from hard workouts.” Even...

How To Break Through A Running Plateau

Thursday 26 May 2016 Triathlete.com
Try a new approach to your training to gain an edge in your next race. Looking to get from T2 to the finish a little quicker this year? Perhaps you’ve hit a plateau, or feel like there’s a missing ingredient in your run training. When manipulating the basic ingredients, or tenets of training—volume, frequency, intensity and duration—there are literally thousands of combinations you can utilize to change your approach. If your running is stuck in a rut, consider one of these approach tweaks to help you breakout this season. The Approach: High Frequency High frequency leads to increased durability, which makes you more resistant to injury and better able to hold pace and form at the end of the race. A triathlete only running a few times per week can reap benefits by gradually increasing to 5–6 runs. One benefit of upping the frequency of your runs is that it helps you build muscular endurance while allowing you to take some of the emphasis off of very long runs (like those 20-milers...

6 Common Strength Training Myths

Thursday 26 May 2016 Triathlete.com
Jeff Horowitz takes a look at some of the misconceptions in regards to strength training. In his book Quick Strength for Runners, running coach and personal trainer Jeff Horowitz shows that just a little strength training can go a long way toward making endurance athletes stronger, faster, and more resistant to injury. In his 8-week program, athletes spend less than an hour a week performing simple exercises that build a well-balanced, strong body. Despite its benefits, some athletes are reluctant to begin strength training because they believe it will cause them to bulk up with unwanted muscle mass that will make it harder to run. Horowitz busts the six most common myths about strength training for runners. Myth: Strength training will make me bigger, and I do not want to be bigger Strength training can enlarge your muscles—known as “hypertrophy”—but that is not an inevitable outcome of strength training. Think of doing strength training as using a tool: It will do what you ask of it....

Sports Illustrated's Fittest 50 2016!!

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Jessi Stensland
Si_parkour_cropped Yours truly one of the 50 Fittest? Well.....if as Tom Myers says these days... "You are fit if you can adapt to the demands of your environment with ease and imagination." ...then YES! It's the agility component over any/all terrain I'm most stoked on evolving these days in addition to strength, cardio, endurance that I have such experience with from my past. SO FUN. Cool that SI acknowledged quite a range of "fitness" in this list. It's this definition of fit that I relate to these days, having a desire to be both comfortable and capable on land, in the air or water...on my feet, a bike, skis, scuba, kayaks, or now with parkour.

Reflections on the Adventure that was 2015

Time does fly when you're having fun. Come along if you'd like :) First of all - thank YOU - to everyone who was a part of my year, in mind, body and/or spirit. The reflections below do not tell all. Above all YOU made this my best year yet... Snapshot: This year I moved. A lot. For the first half of the year my lifestyle was active; my work was active; daily outdoor adventure was the norm. My mind was challenged more by physical tasks than intellectual stimulation, which perhaps was why it went into overdrive for the second half of the year with the conceptualization, creation and launch of FEET FREEX - a movement to inspire a greater understanding and use of feet and footwear innovations designed to suit them. Threads that weave their way through my day to day these days... Love. Curiosity. Fun. Being aware and fully alive. Incidental education. Traveling...

Race Recap: Las Catalinas Triathlon

Wednesday 15 Apr 2015 Jessi Stensland
11045325_836150786468070_8660503337038089633_o One of my favorite triathlons I've done hands down.  Small town vibe, amazing calm clear blue water for the swim, 99% of the bike and run was on singletrack and a finish on the main street of the town I've been calling home.  The ice cold mobile sponge baths on the run were icing on the cake!!  Won the ladies division...simply felt great and glad to be a part of the community.  Managed an "a cachete" (ah kah-cheh-teh) to my Costa Rican buddy Juan Carlos as we passed on the course who taught me the slang street phrase, meaning "con todo" or well stocked, but similar to saying “belly full.” As he explained it, all is good and we've got all we need, nothing more...just about right for that moment.  Hard work on the hills but so satisfying and fantastic. My favorite quote of the day came from Charles Brewer the founder of this new town of Las Catalinas, who also did the triathlon, winning his age group: "I think this is the greatest day in Las Catalinas history," he said as he glanced...

Hello from Squamish BC Canada!

Thursday 01 May 2014 Jessi Stensland
IMG_0495 Landed in Squamish! and other than what I'd been hearing from a couple of key friends about how great this place is and of course knowing it's close proximity to Whistler...I didn't know what I was in for. It was made clear upon arrival.  Boulder has its Flatirons...Squamish has THE CHIEF...AND the sea...and old gorgeous green old growth forests...               I've only been driven by the MTB trails as my shoes seem to have been left behind in Boulder, but should be here shortly.  They seem INSANE and INNUMERABLE...more on that later. In the meantime - keep Squamish on your adventure destination list.  It truly is Canada's Outdoor Recreation Capital.  

Dynamic Warm-Ups Make You Stronger, Faster

Wednesday 24 Apr 2013 Jessi Stensland
Came across a recent article from Competitor Magazine based, in part, on an interview I did with them on the subject a while back. Bobby McGee and Bob Seebohar also offer their thoughts. Well written. It begins... "You know you’re supposed to warm up your muscles and joints before you head out for a run. But did you ever consider that the way you perform that warmup could be hurting, not helping, your run? It’s true. New research supports what many respected coaches have known for years: The preferable pre-run warmup should include movements that are designed to activate and elongate your muscles."

Nine Minutes. One Big Lesson.

Friday 06 Jan 2012 Jessi Stensland
9a In December 2003 I quit the sport of triathlon because my body couldn't handle it.  In January 2004, Athletes' Performance took me under their wings and introduced me to movement-based training.  By April 2004 I had the race of my life at the US Olympic Trials.  The rest of the year was a dream. Before that year, all of my racing seasons had come to close only once my performance had taken a dive, a sure sign that my season was over.  Not the most fun way to end a season.  Alas, that's how it went. Until 2004. It was thanks to Athletes' Performance's methodology that integrates all aspects of performance into one complete training program, that I began to truly understand the concept of training with a purpose.  Completely gone were the moments of misery and exhaustion, the disregard for sleep and recovery and the lack of confidence in my training and racing. I have learned so many things over the years.  I've gotten to experience first hand, with my own body, what many only get to...

Time does fly when you're having fun. Come along if you'd like :) First of all - thank YOU - to everyone who was a part of my year, in mind, body and/or spirit. The reflections below do not tell all. Above all YOU made this my best year yet... Snapshot: This year I moved. A lot. For the first half of the year my lifestyle was active; my work was active; daily outdoor adventure was the norm. My mind was challenged more by physical tasks than intellectual stimulation, which perhaps was why it went into overdrive for the second half of the year with the conceptualization, creation and launch of FEET FREEX - a movement to inspire a greater understanding and use of feet and footwear innovations designed to suit them. Threads that weave their way through my day to day these days... Love. Curiosity. Fun. Being aware and fully alive. Incidental education. Traveling...

Race Recap: Las Catalinas Triathlon

11045325_836150786468070_8660503337038089633_o One of my favorite triathlons I've done hands down.  Small town vibe, amazing calm clear blue water for the swim, 99% of the bike and run was on singletrack and a finish on the main street of the town I've been calling home.  The ice cold mobile sponge baths on the run were icing on the cake!!  Won the ladies division...simply felt great and glad to be a part of the community.  Managed an "a cachete" (ah kah-cheh-teh) to my Costa Rican buddy Juan Carlos as we passed on the course who taught me the slang street phrase, meaning "con todo" or well stocked, but similar to saying “belly full.” As he explained it, all is good and we've got all we need, nothing more...just about right for that moment.  Hard work on the hills but so satisfying and fantastic. My favorite quote of the day came from Charles Brewer the founder of this new town of Las Catalinas, who also did the triathlon, winning his age group: "I think this is the greatest day in Las Catalinas history," he said as he glanced...

Hello from Squamish BC Canada!

Thursday 01 May 2014 Jessi Stensland
IMG_0495 Landed in Squamish! and other than what I'd been hearing from a couple of key friends about how great this place is and of course knowing it's close proximity to Whistler...I didn't know what I was in for. It was made clear upon arrival.  Boulder has its Flatirons...Squamish has THE CHIEF...AND the sea...and old gorgeous green old growth forests...               I've only been driven by the MTB trails as my shoes seem to have been left behind in Boulder, but should be here shortly.  They seem INSANE and INNUMERABLE...more on that later. In the meantime - keep Squamish on your adventure destination list.  It truly is Canada's Outdoor Recreation Capital.
