What Happens When A Pro Triathlete Tries 7 Fitness Trends?

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
Pro triathlete Chris Foster is a former member of the U.S. National Triathlon Team and has won multiple non-drafting races such as the Los Angeles Triathlon and Galveston 5150 Triathlon. Instead of a typical off-season, he decided to try something a little different for February—immerse himself in two weeks of fitness trends to see what would happen. Here’s a look at how his experiment turned out. The winter months have not been kind to my (previously) fine-tuned professional triathlete body. More accurately, I have not been very kind to it. After guiding a visually impaired friend of mine at the Ironman World Championship in October, I took some time off. And then some more. I had gotten to the point where my off-season was sliding into the real season, and I needed to jumpstart my motivation and my fitness. So I did what so many people do after New Year’s Day: I joined a gym. Actually, I joined seven gyms. I decided to try seven new fitness trends in the Los Angeles area—none of...

5 Causes Of A Recurring Flat Tyre

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
www.shutterstock.comwww.shutterstock.com Q:  I keep getting flat tyre after flat tyre and I can’t really figure out why. Is it just bad luck or is there something wrong with my tyre? A: It’s possible that you keep getting punctures from new sharp things poking through the tyre, but that’s unlikely. There’s probably something wrong with your tyre, wheel or the way you are putting a new tube into the tyre. These are the things that could be causing your recurring flats and how to fix them. Option 1: Something sharp is stuck in the tyre. The problem: If you don’t remove the object that poked the hole in your first tube, it will probably poke through the replacement tube as well. The fix: After getting a flat, inspect the outside of the tyre for the offending object. Pull out any shards of glass or other sharp things that are stuck in the tyre. Next, run your hand along the inside of the tyre to check for small items that are poking through. The tyre is ready for a new tube once you have...

Test It! Is Your Run Improving?

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Steve GodwinDoing frequent 5Ks or 10Ks is one way to find out if you’ve gained run speed, but because of the inconvenient weekend timing—hey, we have to get on our bikes after all—cost and recovery needed, it’s not a realistic gauge during triathlon season. By using a consistent, quantifiable test that doesn’t take long to recover from, you’ll have a more accurate measure of progress, plus a more realistic vision of your real race pace. “Age-group athletes often have a false impression of their racing fitness because they measure it based on volume, or speeds in fractionalized (interval) workouts,” says Bobby McGee, an acclaimed triathlon and running coach who has assisted athletes in every Olympic Games since 1998. “Then they’re perplexed when they blow up in races at these incorrectly determined paces.” Every three to four weeks during your season, incorporate one of the tests at right to measure your fitness gains. Focus on consistent, controlled pacing. It’s important,...

Run workouts: Difference is bliss

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockWe all have our staple workouts: the 10×400-meter repeats at mile pace we remember from high school or that 4×1-mile session at 5K pace we grinded through in college. As creatures of habit, we rarely deviate from these staples—and they seem to work well enough for everyone in the running world—so why do anything different? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? The answer is simple; the body adapts to what we give it and if you keep repeating the same type of workout all the time, where does that stimulus for adaptation go? When I was coaching high school runners at the beginning of my career, I grew tired of what I like to call “straight repeats.” I saw straight repeats as doing the same interval throughout the workout at the same relative pace, i.e. repeats of 200m, 400m, 1K, mile or whatever the distance might have been at the same pace. Everybody was doing them, perhaps rightly so, but for inattentive high school athletes it seemed like a mind numbing way to do...

Ironman 70.3 Geelong - Race Report

Friday 08 Jan 2016
Picture photo by Delly Carr 1st. 4.14.28Swim. 27.06 (11th)Bike. 2.17.47 (1st)Run. 1.25.34 (3rd)To sum up my race today, I'd say almost everything that could go wrong did except crossing the finish line first! If my thoughts were vocal you'd have to cover your ears as my brain was throwing out some pretty explicit language, but looking back now I'm kinda strangely happy it all went down the way it did. You can't get better mental training than overcoming problems on race day. So this is how it all went down... The gun went off and I ran down to the water, dived in and started swinging my arms over... I got a good start. I was in a good position and with such a large field I was confident I'd find some feet to sit on. This is about as far as my good luck went until I crossed the finish line! The girls to my right started closing in on me and at the same time...

A Disheartening Experience

Wednesday 10 Feb 2016 Lsanderstri
I will preface this post by saying that I am not pointing fingers at anyone. I am presenting an experience that I had yesterday / this morning, and you can formulate your own opinion on the matter. I feel that this is an experience that needs to be shared publicly, specifically so that my fellow pros know that this sort of thing can happen. Monday February 8th 2016 I had a knock at the door at 6:05am. It was the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and they were ordered by WTC to conduct both a blood and urine test on me. They collected two purple vials of blood for the Blood Passport program. Everything went smoothly. The only slight hiccup was that the needle went through my vein and had to be backed out in order for the blood to start draining into the vial. The testers left my house at 6:55am. Yesterday evening (Tuesday February 9th) I checked my account on ADAMS Whereabouts. If you are not familiar, this is the system the World Anti Doping Agency uses to keep tabs on...

Challenge Rimini Half - 6th

Sunday 11 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
I just finished the Challenge Rimini Half here on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Italy. I raced the world junior duathlon champs here in 2001 and I was hoping to relive the magic from 13 years ago but I will have to settle for another 6th place finish after a tough closing 10km of the run where everything seemed to fall to pieces pretty badly. It may have been all the travel and crossing time zones but I felt great through to the half way point on the run so I am going to put it down to the epic crash I managed to get myself in at the 45km mark on the bike. The road rash on my arm was not too bad but it wasn't until after the race that I managed to assess the damage to my hip and there was some pretty good damage. It has been a great week here in Rimini and I have really enjoyed the change in pace. It seems Italy time is a lot like "island time" and when it comes to meals this place is off the chart. I love good food and there has been plenty of it the past few days, but I have...

Ironman 70.3 St. George - 6th

Sunday 04 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Ironman 70.3 St. George race in UTAH, it doubled up as the US Pro championships and was my first race of the Northern hemisphere season. Only being back into training the past 6 weeks from a small recovery period after Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ my goal going into the race was to test the body, see where the fitness was and test that against most of the best athletes in the world. All in all it was a very tough day but I am please to walk away after a solid race finishing in 6th Place. This was my first trip to UTAH and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect coming in, but the truth is St. George has such amazing scenery and very friendly people I will definitely be coming back and exploring the area a little more.The course has to be one of the toughest I have ever competed on, add to the course the stellar field and the slight altitude of the area it was sure to be a hard hard day at the office. My feel in the water has been good plus I had a brand...

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ - 3rd

Monday 03 Mar 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain New Zealand Ironman down in Taupo. It was a very tough day but I am pleased with my 3rd place finish behind Marko Albert and Cam Brown. It was also a great way to mark the end of my Pre Season base training and put to rest some monsters that have been hiding in my Ironman closet.Taupo put on a superb week with great weather leading into and on race day. I was happy with where my fitness was across all 3 disciplines and I was looking forward to testing the waters and seeing how far I had come since my last Ironman finish in 2011. Marko set a fast start to the 3.8km swim and soon a small group of us had a break. We quickly navigated through the waters to come out with a 2 minute lead over the chase pack which included Cam Brown.  Last years winner, Bevan Docherty along with several strong bikers made up the front group and I was sure we would work well together to slowly build our lead over the 180km, 2 lap bike course....

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Monday 23 Dec 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
Hi all,Just a quick note to wish you and your families all a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of festive seasons!I hope that we all finish off 2013 pleased with how things have gone and ready to keep moving forward after the haze settles in the new year. Timing of my off season was very unfortunate as I started back in heavy training last week, but thankfully my coach Jon Ackland has found it in his heart to give me a few easy days which I will be enjoying with my family between Waiheke Island and Auckland. Early in the New Year I will be racing the Auckland 70.3, this race also doubles as the Asia Pacific Pro Championships. Unfortunately due to the car door incident at the beginning of this year I was unable to be on the start line for the inaugural race but I am determined to make up for it. Then at the beginning of March I will be returning to Nutri-Grain Ironman New Zealand in Taupo. This will be the extent of my New Zealand racing for this season and I am looking...

What Happens When A Pro Triathlete Tries 7 Fitness Trends?

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
Pro triathlete Chris Foster is a former member of the U.S. National Triathlon Team and has won multiple non-drafting races such as the Los Angeles Triathlon and Galveston 5150 Triathlon. Instead of a typical off-season, he decided to try something a little different for February—immerse himself in two weeks of fitness trends to see what would happen. Here’s a look at how his experiment turned out. The winter months have not been kind to my (previously) fine-tuned professional triathlete body. More accurately, I have not been very kind to it. After guiding a visually impaired friend of mine at the Ironman World Championship in October, I took some time off. And then some more. I had gotten to the point where my off-season was sliding into the real season, and I needed to jumpstart my motivation and my fitness. So I did what so many people do after New Year’s Day: I joined a gym. Actually, I joined seven gyms. I decided to try seven new fitness trends in the Los Angeles area—none of...

Camping & 70.3 Dubai (12.02.16)

Friday 12 Feb 2016 Corinne
We are six weeks into 2016 and training is well underway. I launched into the year with two weeks in Gran Canaria, then a week in Abu Dhabi and Dubai for the Ironman 70.3 / first of the Triple Crown series, and since I've been camping out with the Pewag Racing Team guys in Lanzarote. It's not been a bad way to start the year...

Ironman 70.3 Geelong - Race Report

Friday 08 Jan 2016
Picture photo by Delly Carr 1st. 4.14.28Swim. 27.06 (11th)Bike. 2.17.47 (1st)Run. 1.25.34 (3rd)To sum up my race today, I'd say almost everything that could go wrong did except crossing the finish line first! If my thoughts were vocal you'd have to cover your ears as my brain was throwing out some pretty explicit language, but looking back now I'm kinda strangely happy it all went down the way it did. You can't get better mental training than overcoming problems on race day. So this is how it all went down... The gun went off and I ran down to the water, dived in and started swinging my arms over... I got a good start. I was in a good position and with such a large field I was confident I'd find some feet to sit on. This is about as far as my good luck went until I crossed the finish line! The girls to my right started closing in on me and at the same time...

A Disheartening Experience

Wednesday 10 Feb 2016 Lsanderstri
I will preface this post by saying that I am not pointing fingers at anyone. I am presenting an experience that I had yesterday / this morning, and you can formulate your own opinion on the matter. I feel that this is an experience that needs to be shared publicly, specifically so that my fellow pros know that this sort of thing can happen. Monday February 8th 2016 I had a knock at the door at 6:05am. It was the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and they were ordered by WTC to conduct both a blood and urine test on me. They collected two purple vials of blood for the Blood Passport program. Everything went smoothly. The only slight hiccup was that the needle went through my vein and had to be backed out in order for the blood to start draining into the vial. The testers left my house at 6:55am. Yesterday evening (Tuesday February 9th) I checked my account on ADAMS Whereabouts. If you are not familiar, this is the system the World Anti Doping Agency uses to keep tabs on...

Challenge Rimini Half - 6th

Sunday 11 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
I just finished the Challenge Rimini Half here on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Italy. I raced the world junior duathlon champs here in 2001 and I was hoping to relive the magic from 13 years ago but I will have to settle for another 6th place finish after a tough closing 10km of the run where everything seemed to fall to pieces pretty badly. It may have been all the travel and crossing time zones but I felt great through to the half way point on the run so I am going to put it down to the epic crash I managed to get myself in at the 45km mark on the bike. The road rash on my arm was not too bad but it wasn't until after the race that I managed to assess the damage to my hip and there was some pretty good damage. It has been a great week here in Rimini and I have really enjoyed the change in pace. It seems Italy time is a lot like "island time" and when it comes to meals this place is off the chart. I love good food and there has been plenty of it the past few days, but I have...

Ironman 70.3 St. George - 6th

Sunday 04 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Ironman 70.3 St. George race in UTAH, it doubled up as the US Pro championships and was my first race of the Northern hemisphere season. Only being back into training the past 6 weeks from a small recovery period after Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ my goal going into the race was to test the body, see where the fitness was and test that against most of the best athletes in the world. All in all it was a very tough day but I am please to walk away after a solid race finishing in 6th Place. This was my first trip to UTAH and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect coming in, but the truth is St. George has such amazing scenery and very friendly people I will definitely be coming back and exploring the area a little more.The course has to be one of the toughest I have ever competed on, add to the course the stellar field and the slight altitude of the area it was sure to be a hard hard day at the office. My feel in the water has been good plus I had a brand...
