BACK IN MEXICO!

Wednesday 21 Nov 2012 Luke McKenzie (noreply@blogger.com)
Amanda and I are currently on the beautiful island of Cozumel in Mexico preparing for my last race of the 2012 season. We arrived earlier than we originally planned due to cooler weather in LA. Getting ready to take on a hot and humid race takes some acclimatizing and I feel I am more comfortable and train better in these conditions anyway.AMANDA RIDING THE BRAND NEW BIKE PATH THAT LOOPS AROUND THE ISLAND The island really is set up well for triathlon training and from what I hear they are looking to continue to build the infrastructure and facilities to cater for triathletes to come here for camps. The bike path that now loops 65km around the island is simply amazing with no vehicle traffic allowed and it's perfect hot mix surface truly is a pleasure to ride. No hills in Cozumel you say? I would say ride the back stretch of the island on a windy day (quite frequent here it seems) and you won't be complaining about missing hills. A 25m swimming pool (free) in the center of town as...

Castle Howard – Gauntlet 2014

Friday 01 Aug 2014 Fraser
Howard6 3rd place – 4:22:07 The finish line back drop of Castle Howard in Yorkshire is one of the more stunning you will find for a triathlon event – great work yet again from the Castle Triathlon Series events team. Last year the Castle Howard event was my first experience of the Castle Triathlon Series and I was mightily impressed with the whole event and especially the surroundings that the venue is hosting amongst. Ali and I had only two weeks previously raced The Bastion Ironman event at Hever Castle in Kent, but given Yorkshire is only! a 4 hour drive for us, we wanted to get down the road and race what is the most ‘local’ of these races for us. As ever with these races in this series, there are hills aplenty on the bike course plus an off road element to the run section of the races. I was racing the ‘Gauntlet’ half ironman distance event and Ali gave the olympic distance a go. We both thought that the resepective loops out in the countryside...

Why?

Tuesday 29 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (rappstar)
© 2014 Stirland Rae Photo People ask me why I do this over and over. The best thing I've come up with is, "Because I have to. I don't know how to live my life any other way."  - Rebecca Rusch, WHY? (Someone on the Slowtwitch forum asked why I was doing all these races - five 70.3s in six weeks. This was the best thing I could come up with...) It started out as a twofold goal:  -

Helping others

Saturday 26 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Amelia Pearson)
My role as a triathlon coach is all about helping others. It is very rewarding when I see others inspired to improve and achieve. Sport does not always have to be about winning, it can be just as, sometimes more, satisfying to know you are out there doing your best.A recent week at Tri4theAlps with some guests that are relatively new to the sport proved just this. It was a pretty awful week of weather but they were so keen to get out there and willing to learn that it really didn't matter. It was great to see them all improve over the week, in fitness, strength, endurance, skills and ultimately their confidence. I am really looking forward to following their progress and it gives me a buzz to know that I helped contribute to their future endeavours.I've also been helping some locals. Keeping track of them over a month or so now and watching the progress has been incredible. I am excited to be able to continue to work with them over time and hope I can continue to help them grow not...

It was like slamming into a concrete wall. So cold! Once the cannon fired though I was fine, adrenalin fixes everything!As usual I was a bit slow off at the start and pretty quickly spat out the back of the women's field. By the first buoy I had got into my rhythm and started chasing down the two girls I could still see in front of me. I eventually caught them about half way through the swim and then practiced 'staying on feet' for the rest of the swim. I'm still not good at all. I came out of the water in 5th place, close behind the 2 I'd been trying to 'sit on'. After exiting the water there...

Taking Triathlons into the Wild- NY Times article

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Conrad
Recent NY Times article on triathlons moving to the more adventurous side: [Most off-road racers start with traditional endurance events before moving on to off-road competitions. Conrad Stoltz, a professional triathlete from South Africa and four-time Xterra World Champion, started his career with traditional triathlons and competed in two Olympics. He now focuses on off-road competitions. “With road triathlon, you chase the white line on the road,” Stoltz said. “It’s all about taking as much pain as possible. He or she who trained the hardest and suffers the most usually wins. “To do well in off-road tris you need to be technically skilled, brave and robust, on top of being superfit and well trained.” “You go back to the Stone Age. You’re a caveman or cavewoman again.”] Read the whole article on the NYTimes link:  

Mont Tremblant 70.3

Tuesday 26 Jun 2012 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
If you want to experience Canadian beauty in it's truest form... Mont Tremblant is breath-taking...The Mayor, Governor General, race organizers and the community of Mont Tremblant have a dream of  this venue to be a place for not only one of the best races in the world but also a place where triathletes want to come to train and base. Every intricate detail was covered when it comes to this race. They put it on like it was the World Championships... I'm pretty sure everyone that you talk to that was here will voice the same thoughts. My vote is make Mont Tremblant 70.3 a future prospect of 70.3Championships!Race Start... The SnowBirds flew over top. As a kid growing up in Canada the SnowBirds were always an excitement and awe to behold as they would soar high above and put on such a spectacular show. I loved that I was racing in my country... I totally get the pride athletes feel when they are on the podium watching their flag being raised in honor of their victory. I felt this...

Osmo Water Pic Wednesday – Race Week, Birthday Week, Oh My!

Wednesday 23 Jul 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 8.53.27 PM I have SO much to celebrate this week! THANK YOU for all the positive response to Smashfest Queen’s launch of their new HC Tri Kit! I’m so grateful to have not only incredible sponsor support (my own kit!?!? someone pinch me!!), but all of the nice comments on twitter, Facebook, in person, and online, have been equally amazing. I am one lucky girl and I cannot WAIT to see all that green and yellow goodness on the road! It’s not too late to get your own, pre-order links are HERE. As if that isn’t enough, it’s my birthday!!! And what am I doing? I’m going to OHIO!!! I’ve somehow made it 29 whole years without a visit to the Buckeye State, but I’ll be fixing that this weekend when I toe the line at Challenge New Albany. The half Ironman distance race northeast of Columbus is sure to be a GREAT experience AND since pretty much every person I know from Ohio is completely awesome, I have high expectations for the whole trip!

Ironman Vineman 70.3 2014

Wednesday 23 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Well Vineman 70.3 did not quite go to plan and adding my name to the winners trophy for a 2nd time did not turn out but as always I enjoyed the day and a huge congratulations must go out to the race crew on putting on another first class event.With a front "blow out" that went off like a shot gun about 1hr 20mins in the race for the win was over as I watched the front bunch of 6 roll away. Not wanting to waste the day I changed the flat collected my rubbish and got back on to get a solid day in of swim, bike and running in the bank for the next event the North American Ironman Championships in Mont-Tremblant Canada where I will try to defend my title from 2013.Although the day did not go to plan please see below a short clip of the days event.https://vimeo.com/101367204BestLuke

Damn. I exited the water in 11th place but within contact of the main pack with Rachel McBride 40 seconds ahead and Meredith & Laura 2:38 up the road.I moved into 7th place soon after mounting my bike as I took advantage of running my bike to the top of the steep hill instead of mounting at the bottom. My new bike was in tip top shape thanks to Alex at SRAM who came to see me as soon as I arrived in the States from Australia. He went over the bike with a fine-toothed...

Only have 30 minutes to swim? Get Caveman-BANG-for-your-30min swim set:

Conrad Stoltz, caveman, swimming, 30 minute swim workout, Blue Seventy, Suunto Ambit2s, Suunto Make pool time count.                          Photo by Hendrik Steytler Finding time to train for 3 sports is hard enough as it is. Last week I was at the Specialized Dealer Event and between riding 2015 bikes with dealers, presentations, expo, catching up with industry friends and bike & run training, I only had 30minutes to squeeze in a quick swim. I jogged the few street blocks to the local 25yd pool and hit the water running: Caveman’s Magic 30min swim set: - Warm up: 8 minute easy swimming, focussing on feeling the water and concentrating on good stroke. Once I start feeling good, I like to throw in some one arm swimming (other arm by the side) and maybe a 100 IM or 2- to get the heart rate up and get some more “feel” for the water. - Main set: 20 minutes of sprinting 25s. Sounds easy, but the trick is in the rest period: Only 3 breaths “rest.” Between the hard sprinting and short rests, pretty soon I’m at theshold. Its the best of both...

2nd 70.3 Racine

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Andrew Starykowicz
Racine_swimout To start off thank you to all of my friends and family who made the trip up to Racine to watch me race. I like when it is bring your friends and family to work day. Greatly appreciate all the support! The Spirit of Racine triathlon, this race I want to win in a bad way. I want to win it the way I wanted to win Chicago Triathlon for the half a decade that my sole focus was the Olympic distance. Now the focus of my career has changed and the goal shifted from Chicago Triathlon to Spirit of Racine, why, because they are home. I get to sleep in my own bed the night before the race. I have an unfair advantage of knowing how to ride the rough roads of the midwest. The conditions are what my body work best in. So coming to my house to race…just sounds like such a losing proposition… Race morning started early because I really couldn’t sleep, my mind and body were charged up for race day. On the drive up nothing on the radio could satisfy the hunger inside. I got to...

Racine 70.3

Monday 21 Jul 2014 Lsanderstri
Yesterday I raced the Racine 70.3. This race was going to be a very interesting experience because I raced Muncie 70.3 just seven days prior, and so was unsure how my body was going to react when asking it to perform at a high level twice in such a short period of time. In the week leading into the race I decided to take it easy just a little bit more than I did going into Muncie 70.3. At the very least I thought this would leave me feeling more rested for when I start my final preparations for the 70.3 World Championship on Wednesday July 23rd. As the week progressed I started to feel physically better than I did in the days leading into Muncie. I didn’t have any performance expectations going into the race, but I had a feeling that I would be able to produce something very similar to Muncie. I was fortunate enough to do this race with my mom and my friend Sadie, as well as have both my girlfriend and her parents there for support. Erin, Sadie, Chewy (my dog) and I started our journey...

Muncie 70.3

Monday 14 Jul 2014 Lsanderstri
Muncie Finish This past weekend I raced the Muncie 70.3 in Indiana. This was my first time going to Indiana, but I felt like I was back at home in Essex County. The roads were dead flat and full of potholes, as well as surrounded by farmer’s fields on each side; nearly identical to Essex County. Just twenty days prior I raced Syracuse 70.3. There, I had a good swim and run, but was very unhappy with my bike. I had been tinkering with my cadence and decided to push 90-95 RPM during the race. Unfortunately, I did not have a power meter in that race and was unable to gage how hard I was going; mainly due to the significant change in cadence. Both the feeling in my legs, as well as the amount of time I gave up to the athlete’s in front of me, indicated that I had biked too easy. After the race, Cody Beals and Alex Vanderlinden both pointed me in the direction of Stages power meters. I contacted them and I must say, it was some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. They got back to me...

Syracuse Recap

Wednesday 25 Jun 2014 Lsanderstri
Arizona Long Ride This past weekend I raced Syracuse 70.3. Overall the race went decently well. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had been starting to groove my new swim stroke in the days leading into the race, so I was most excited to see how far back from the leaders I would come out of the water. I swam 26:28. This is over a minute faster than I swam in Raleigh 70.3 just three weeks prior, and is very close to my best swim ever in a 70.3. What’s most interesting is that it was very controlled and relaxed. In fact, towards the end of the swim, I was having such an enjoyable experience that I actually thought to myself, “I wish this swim was longer.” I must thank Miguel Vadillo for this, as this is the first time in my life that I truly enjoyed the swim portion of the race. Things are moving in the right direction with regards to this discipline. The bike was a very different story. I raced this one without any power. My only goal for the race was to hold a cadence between 90 and 95 RPM whenever...

Post-Raleigh, Pre-Syracuse

Tuesday 17 Jun 2014 Lsanderstri
Run PB Data I was unsure how my body was going to react after Raleigh 70.3. I raced very hard there, so I was expecting to be pretty fatigued for a few days after the race. Fortunately, I rebounded quite well. I had a massage about 20 minutes after the race, so I’m sure this helped. The day after the race Erin and I drove the 13 hours back to Hamilton, and I went for a 30 minute run on one of our stops. The next day I did a moderate volume day, and then the day after that I did both a hard run and hard bike workout. I think the high volume I was doing going into the race definitely lessened the impact the race had on my body. This next period was definitely a good learning experience as to how much training I can expect to do after a hard race, but with another big race on the near horizon. This coming Sunday I am racing Syracuse 70.3, which will be exactly three weeks after Raleigh. That is not much time, especially considering I thought I would need at least a few recovery days after Raleigh....

Raleigh 70.3 and Analysis Follow Up

Wednesday 04 Jun 2014 Lsanderstri
As I spoke about in my last post, I had a suspicion that the poor performance in St. George was a byproduct of low training volume in the weeks leading into the race, as well as an unnecessarily heavy taper. So, going into Raleigh 70.3 I decided to analyze my training leading into Muskoka 70.3 and Texas 70.3 and then do a similar amount of training as I did when going into those races. After St. George I was only able to put in a 19 day block before easing back the training for 6 days so that I would be somewhat rested going into Raleigh. In that 19 days I swam 41670m, biked 1590k and ran 358k. Additionally, I raced two races: Ironhawk Duathlon and MSC Woodstock. I should mention, that those 19 days were the highest volume of training I have ever done in that length of time. After 7 days I was starting to feel quite fatigued, but by 10 days I was beginning to adapt to the load and by day 18 I felt quite good. This worked out well because the next morning I was to race MSC Woodstock. I...

Training Analysis

Wednesday 28 May 2014 Lsanderstri
After St. George 70.3 I came to the conclusion that I perform best after training very hard for a moderate period of time, and then doing a fairly short taper into a race. My best performance to date was Muskoka 70.3. In the three weeks leading into the taper for this race I swam 63750m, biked 1284.4k and ran 219.5k. This is the second largest volume block I’ve done. I did more volume when training for Ironman Louisville in 2010, but the intensity was far greater in this block. Per week I was averaging: 21250m swimming, 428.13k biking and 73.16k of running. The volume in the week leading into Muskoka (the taper) looked like this: 14250m swimming, 199.26k biking and 41.09k of running. In other words, it was 50-60% of what I had been doing in the “high volume” weeks leading into the race. I would call this a fairly short and light taper. When I got into the race I felt very good. I had a mantra in place to keep myself relaxed in the swim, and because of this I was able to catch some feet...

Lessons Learned

Wednesday 21 May 2014 Lsanderstri
Sorry for the long absence. It’s taken me a while to gain a decent amount of perspective from my last two races, so I decided to put pen to paper once the inspiration was right. I could probably write twenty pages on this topic, but I will try and be as brief as possible. In the last month and a half I’ve raced two races at the professional level: Ironman 70.3 Texas and Ironman 70.3 St. George. Neither went even remotely to plan. In Texas, I experienced two flats on the bike, which made me a non-factor in the race. I did rebound with the day’s fastest run split, but it didn’t further me economically or with regards to world championship qualifying points. In St. George, the whole day was off right from the get go. I forgot my adapter to air my disc wheel up. I was searching around frantically for one, and during this time lost sight of the individuals I was hoping to draft off of in the swim. My plan was to draft them and then I’d have someone to bike with in an attempt to take time...

Balazs Csoke, Ironman Lake Placid

Balazs Csoke, Ironman Lake Placid

Thursday 31 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

I find it kind of funny that each time after I finish a tough race I almost always promise myself two things: 1) I will never do this again 2) I will never race on this course again. And I thought both of these thoughts last year after I finished 4th place with a sprint finish at Ironman Lake Placid. However, as the race drew nearer and nearer I couldn’t have been more excited to race in Lake Placid again this year. So it’s safe to say, as a triathlete, I sometimes either have a short term memor more

Coach’s Note By Lance Watson: Post-Ironman Return To Racing

Friday 01 Aug 2014 Lance Watson
Photo: Gary L. Geiger/Endurapix After finishing an Ironman, athletes commonly ask me how long it takes until they are ready for their next race. They are often on a post-big-event athletic high, and keen to rush back. Typically an athlete will need six weeks to race again, so patience is key to avoid injury or overtraining. You may not be in prime race condition six weeks later, but you will be ready for a good push on the race course. Alternately, you may surprise yourself by performing well with the mountain of fitness you have built for the Ironman, the fitness impact of the race itself, and feeling fresh and motivated after a six-week break from the competing. Here is a my recommendation for a six-week recovery protocol, post-Ironman: One to two weeks post Ironman (two-week block): Ironman Recovery The first two weeks after Ironman are critical to your ability to return to racing fresh. Take special care of your body and respect any aches or pains. Particularly be careful working...

BACK IN MEXICO!

Wednesday 21 Nov 2012 Luke McKenzie (noreply@blogger.com)
Amanda and I are currently on the beautiful island of Cozumel in Mexico preparing for my last race of the 2012 season. We arrived earlier than we originally planned due to cooler weather in LA. Getting ready to take on a hot and humid race takes some acclimatizing and I feel I am more comfortable and train better in these conditions anyway.AMANDA RIDING THE BRAND NEW BIKE PATH THAT LOOPS AROUND THE ISLAND The island really is set up well for triathlon training and from what I hear they are looking to continue to build the infrastructure and facilities to cater for triathletes to come here for camps. The bike path that now loops 65km around the island is simply amazing with no vehicle traffic allowed and it's perfect hot mix surface truly is a pleasure to ride. No hills in Cozumel you say? I would say ride the back stretch of the island on a windy day (quite frequent here it seems) and you won't be complaining about missing hills. A 25m swimming pool (free) in the center of town as...

Castle Howard – Gauntlet 2014

Friday 01 Aug 2014 Fraser
Howard6 3rd place – 4:22:07 The finish line back drop of Castle Howard in Yorkshire is one of the more stunning you will find for a triathlon event – great work yet again from the Castle Triathlon Series events team. Last year the Castle Howard event was my first experience of the Castle Triathlon Series and I was mightily impressed with the whole event and especially the surroundings that the venue is hosting amongst. Ali and I had only two weeks previously raced The Bastion Ironman event at Hever Castle in Kent, but given Yorkshire is only! a 4 hour drive for us, we wanted to get down the road and race what is the most ‘local’ of these races for us. As ever with these races in this series, there are hills aplenty on the bike course plus an off road element to the run section of the races. I was racing the ‘Gauntlet’ half ironman distance event and Ali gave the olympic distance a go. We both thought that the resepective loops out in the countryside...
