Ironman Austria 2016 – Analyzing Results

Monday 27 Jun 2016 Thorsten
Marino Austria Bike Race Conditions Austria is a fast course, and the bike and run times were as quick as any year. However, the swim was very slow this year (adjustment of -3:27 compared to swim rating of 1:54 before this year’s race) – about five minutes slower than normal! The non-wetsuit conditions may have had an influence, but five minutes seems a pretty large difference for that. After the slower swim, Mirinda Carfrae made the most of the fast “on land” conditions – she missed the bike course record by only four minutes, then set a new run record of 2:49:06 and also a new overall course record of 8:41:17. Male Race Results The pre-race favorite, Marino Vanhoenacker had another great race in Austria – he remains unbeaten in Klagenfurt as the eight times winner.

Course records, PB’s and firsts all conquered at Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon this weekend

Monday 27 Jun 2016 Paul Moore
The sun shone for the Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon giving 1,300 competitors stunning race conditions by a regal castle with an amazing course. The triathlon festival was hailed a huge success by all and will subsequently expand to a two day weekend triathlon in 2017 (24/25 June). The course was typical of what we have come to expect of a Castle Triathlon Series event – a challenging swim, bike and run course but set in a beautiful part of the world with unrivalled athlete support and a great atmosphere. It offered a particularly motivating course for the Olympic and Gauntlet races with spectator cheering areas as they looped on the swim with an Australian exit and looped through the event village on the bike. The Gauntlet Elliot Smales flew around the course leading on all disciplines and conquered the race with a time of 4:09:12 breaking the course record previously held by Joe Skipper (04:13:09). Smales has raced with the Castle Triathlon Series for some years now, and this was his...

Q&A: Do I need to take rest days?

Monday 27 Jun 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Todd SpothQuestion: Am I setting myself up for burnout or injury if I have no rest/recovery days? Answer: Rest days are one tool in your recovery toolbox. Others include post-workout refuelling and rehydrating, dynamic stretching, foam rolling and active recovery. Without adequate recovery, your long-term improvement will be hindered. So it’s helpful to understand how rest days can help you adapt to your training load. A rest day allows for extended recovery, thus permitting the body to adapt more fully to a previous training cycle. Rest days also give the body time to refill glycogen stores, prevent overtraining and avoid mental burnout. However, weekly rest days are not always a necessity, and when you take one depends on your history, lifestyle and training period (i.e., off-season, base, build, taper). Typically, beginners should take weekly rest days; experienced athletes can space them out more. Generally, rest days are a good idea after long or intense training blocks...

Are You A Balanced Runner?

Monday 27 Jun 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Shutterstock.com Photo: Shutterstock.com To run efficiently, you need more than just strength alone. As endurance athletes know, optimal performance isn’t about aimlessly accumulating mileage but rather organising training in a strategic way for improved fitness. A perfect example of this can be seen in a recent study that compared a group of highly trained runners with a group of recreational runners. When they looked at muscle strength in the participants’ legs, in addition to running economy, they found that while the recreational runners actually had stronger muscles, they demonstrated lower running economy. Conversely, while the highly trained runners had less strength, they proved to have better balance in quad-to-hamstring strength, which translated into higher running economy. The explanation behind the relationship is that hamstring and quadriceps muscles simply tend to work more efficiently when they are equally strong. “When each muscle in the chain of movement is...

Tomorrow, I race!

Saturday 25 Jun 2016 Haley
IMG_5692 Hi from Coeur D’Alene, Idaho! Spokane River, where I ate breakfast, not the swim course, but still beautiful! It has been a LONG nine months, but I’m finally back on a start line. Tomorrow I race Ironman 70.3 Coeur D’Alene with a whole lot of excitement and gratitude. There’s something refreshing about second chances and I intend to savor every moment of this 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run. New Race Kit! Back to Green & Yellow! YES!!! You know those times when it just feels so good to go hard? Well, I’ve really missed that, along with the general endurance sports camaraderie only found at races. Those are the things I’m looking forward to most tomorrow. I’m still working on a proper post about the ups and downs of life post-crash, Kona, and general updates (comebacks are surprisingly hard to write about!!) but until then just know I’m so incredibly thankful for your support and cheers. It’s a bit hard for me to...

A speed bump in my Kona 2015 journey (but not in life!)

Monday 05 Oct 2015 Haley
“Remember when Khaleesi ate the heart? Ummm…it kind of looks like that.” An avid Game of Thrones fan, the Trauma Surgeon sewing up my leg agreed with Betty. The scene was a bit graphic. I decided to take their word for it and didn’t look down. I was almost 50 miles into my ride when the car hit me. I was lucky. The driver stopped and his wife immediately called 911 while members of a nearby church helped me make phone calls and stay calm. I cried all 26 miles in the ambulance. The situation is sad. The four letter words have come easy the past two weeks, including that notorious K-word. For two years I’ve focused on Kona. For two years my coach, my family, my friends, my sponsors have supported my return to the Big Island. I was so fit and so ready.   But fitness is good for more than just Ironman. My bones held strong and my soft tissue is healing fast. And my brain? My brain is doing its best to embrace the good. I have some really good friends, really good sponsors, family that will...

Friday 03 Apr 2015 Haley
brasilia70.3 Yes, you read that right! I’m back in the land of acai and Guarana! This time I’ve traded the beach for the inland city of Brasilia: Brasilia is hosting the Ironman 70.3 Latin American Championships on Sunday and I am racing!! Brasilia is the capital of Brazil and he whole city was built just 50+ years ago. Because of it’s planned structure and gorgeous architecture, Brasilia was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and we get to swim, bike, and run past a lot of those famous monuments! A championship race means a championship caliber international field and I am looking forward to racing some really amazing women. Brasilia is an hour ahead of Eastern time, which means the gun goes off at 5:50am Atlanta time. Fingers crossed live coverage will be available HERE, and typically MundoTri’s twitter feed has some good updates as well! HUGE thanks to everyone who’s sent good luck messages!

Hogpen Hill Climb 2015

Friday 23 Jan 2015 Haley
hogpen2015 This year’s Hogpen Hill Climb was definitely one to remember. Nearly 30 Dynamo athletes, running up a giant hill, many for the first time ever. I think the pictures (and SMILES) speak for themselves! And because I’m nerdy and make Excel spreadsheets for fun, here’s a comparison of my splits for the past three years! The course seems to have gotten a bit longer, and 10 days of training in 2015 didn’t quite give me the closing speed of previous years, but I’m pretty darn proud of that mile 9 split – SUB 10! Congrats to all who ran and see you next year Hogpen!!

Brasilian Adventure Part 1: Thank You!

Wednesday 10 Dec 2014 Haley
brasil2014finish Wow, wow, wow! What an adventure I had in Brasil! It’s taken some time to process the whole trip as I relive the four week experience with friends and family and finally, here online! The tears streaming down my face as I crossed the line in Fortaleza truly were tears of joy and gratitude. This year has been exceptionally challenging for both myself and those closest to me. My thoughts running down that finish chute were all silent thank yous to everyone who’s supported and believed in me this year, when I needed it more than ever. Because of that I thought it best to start my recap posts with some public thank yous! A week before I flew down to Brasil, I moved out of my Atlanta apartment and in with super-friends Betty & Ernie Janelle. When Betty helped me get started in the sport six years earlier, I’m sure she never imagined she’d someday be referring to “Haley’s room” in her own home, but the move was probably the best change I made...

All eyes were on the race favorite Lionel Sanders (CAN) and how large his deficit would be at the end of the swim. It would be close to three and half minutes more

Taking place in the pristine heart of one of Idaho's prettiest areas, this race takes place in the early summer, when the lush surrounding forest is starting to become very green. Coeur d’Alene is a classic resort and vacation destination that offers numerous recreational activities. The glacier-fed lake, surrounding forests and parks, the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course’s floating green are just a few examples. more

Ironman Austria 2016 – Analyzing Results

Monday 27 Jun 2016 Thorsten
Marino Austria Bike Race Conditions Austria is a fast course, and the bike and run times were as quick as any year. However, the swim was very slow this year (adjustment of -3:27 compared to swim rating of 1:54 before this year’s race) – about five minutes slower than normal! The non-wetsuit conditions may have had an influence, but five minutes seems a pretty large difference for that. After the slower swim, Mirinda Carfrae made the most of the fast “on land” conditions – she missed the bike course record by only four minutes, then set a new run record of 2:49:06 and also a new overall course record of 8:41:17. Male Race Results The pre-race favorite, Marino Vanhoenacker had another great race in Austria – he remains unbeaten in Klagenfurt as the eight times winner.

Jacob Walker shares his inspiring story

jacobwalker   After undergoing brain surgery, it’s unlikely you’re going to be thinking about marathons or running five triathlons in a summer. That is, of course, unless you’re Jacob Walker, who bounced back from a brain tumour in the most remarkable fashion. We chat to Jacob about his inspiring story.

Tomorrow, I race!

Saturday 25 Jun 2016 Haley
IMG_5692 Hi from Coeur D’Alene, Idaho! Spokane River, where I ate breakfast, not the swim course, but still beautiful! It has been a LONG nine months, but I’m finally back on a start line. Tomorrow I race Ironman 70.3 Coeur D’Alene with a whole lot of excitement and gratitude. There’s something refreshing about second chances and I intend to savor every moment of this 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run. New Race Kit! Back to Green & Yellow! YES!!! You know those times when it just feels so good to go hard? Well, I’ve really missed that, along with the general endurance sports camaraderie only found at races. Those are the things I’m looking forward to most tomorrow. I’m still working on a proper post about the ups and downs of life post-crash, Kona, and general updates (comebacks are surprisingly hard to write about!!) but until then just know I’m so incredibly thankful for your support and cheers. It’s a bit hard for me to...

A speed bump in my Kona 2015 journey (but not in life!)

Monday 05 Oct 2015 Haley
“Remember when Khaleesi ate the heart? Ummm…it kind of looks like that.” An avid Game of Thrones fan, the Trauma Surgeon sewing up my leg agreed with Betty. The scene was a bit graphic. I decided to take their word for it and didn’t look down. I was almost 50 miles into my ride when the car hit me. I was lucky. The driver stopped and his wife immediately called 911 while members of a nearby church helped me make phone calls and stay calm. I cried all 26 miles in the ambulance. The situation is sad. The four letter words have come easy the past two weeks, including that notorious K-word. For two years I’ve focused on Kona. For two years my coach, my family, my friends, my sponsors have supported my return to the Big Island. I was so fit and so ready.   But fitness is good for more than just Ironman. My bones held strong and my soft tissue is healing fast. And my brain? My brain is doing its best to embrace the good. I have some really good friends, really good sponsors, family that will...

GET OUTSIDE APRIL!

Tuesday 21 Apr 2015 Haley
Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 9.01.54 AM SUMMER is coming!! And that means YOU need sunscreen! And not just any sunscreen, the kind that stays on as you swim, bike, run your way through miles and miles of open roads under sunny skies! OMG – it’s actually SUNNY!! Confession time: I used to wear bad sunscreen. And I got burnt. BAD. I also used to race in a crop top and  green & yellow capris… But as I became older and wiser and learned the joys of online shopping, I started using Zealios Sun Barrier. Super water resistant, oil free, and 8% zinc oxide. This stuff is so good I’ll put it all over my face with no worries about my goggles leaking! Flawless sighting to the coffee boat. And NOW through April 30th, the good people at Zealios are running a special on their sunscreen!! Use the code GETOUTSIDEAPRIL at checkout for 15% off!! All you have to do is: (1) Go to TeamZealios.com (2) Add some Sun Barrier (or any of the other great products) to your cart: (3) Use the code GETOUTSIDEAPRIL at...

I’m back in Brazil!

Friday 03 Apr 2015 Haley
brasilia70.3 Yes, you read that right! I’m back in the land of acai and Guarana! This time I’ve traded the beach for the inland city of Brasilia: Brasilia is hosting the Ironman 70.3 Latin American Championships on Sunday and I am racing!! Brasilia is the capital of Brazil and he whole city was built just 50+ years ago. Because of it’s planned structure and gorgeous architecture, Brasilia was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and we get to swim, bike, and run past a lot of those famous monuments! A championship race means a championship caliber international field and I am looking forward to racing some really amazing women. Brasilia is an hour ahead of Eastern time, which means the gun goes off at 5:50am Atlanta time. Fingers crossed live coverage will be available HERE, and typically MundoTri’s twitter feed has some good updates as well! HUGE thanks to everyone who’s sent good luck messages! I appreciate it all more than I can ever say. Please keep the good...
