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...

Picky Bars is Growing Up

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Jesse Thomas
When we started Picky Bars four years ago, there wasn’t a whole lot of “strategy” behind it. We didn’t put together a 10 slide presentation, dress up in business suits, and promise investors a 10x return.

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! The gun goes off...

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...

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...

AZ Update 2

Tuesday 01 Apr 2014 Lsanderstri
2x5k I have now been in Arizona for nearly 7 weeks. It is amazing how fast time has gone by. It kind of feels like I’m in the movie Groundhog Day. Almost every day is the same; sunny and warm. A week can go by in the blink of an eye. I have been warned by friends who have stayed here for long periods of time in the past that you can actually get sick of the nice weather. It is safe to say that by no means am I sick of it. I most definitely could live here year round, for the rest of my life…though I have not experienced the extreme heat of the summer. But, to be honest, we have had a few days around 90 degrees, and not once have I thought, “It’s a bit too hot right now.” One day I will come here in the summer, to see for certain. The past few weeks of training have gone really well. This time round, I decided to go 9 days hard, take two days recovery, and then put in another 9 days hard (as opposed to 18 straight). I think this style of training has a lot of benefit, with a lot less risk of...

AZ Update!

Friday 07 Mar 2014 Lsanderstri
Tucson Day 1 It’s been a while!! Sorry for my long absence to anyone who’s been tuning in regularly. My only excuse is that I have been training really hard and have lacked both the time and motivation to put pen to paper. But, I am back, and will try my best to set aside time weekly in which to keep things up to date. First off, I arrived in beautiful Tucson Arizona 21 days ago on February 13th. Coming from the extremely cold temperatures we’ve been experiencing in Hamilton, it was a complete shock. I had a perma-smile on my face for at least the first three days. Going from spending 23 hours per day indoors under artificial light to being able to run in shorts and a t-shirt can best be described as a euphoric experience. Here is a picture I took on the first day and sent to my girlfriend to make her jealous (sorry babe!): Training has been going really well. I just finished an 18 day block that I think it’s safe to say was the hardest 18 days I have ever put in. I am now on a 5 day recovery...

Provincial Indoor Champs

Monday 03 Feb 2014 Lsanderstri
Run Photo On Saturday February 1st I raced at the Awake Chocolate indoor triathlon at McMaster University. It also happened to serve as the Provincial Indoor Triathlon Championship, something that has not occurred in a long while. I knew before going into the race that it would be a stacked field. Andrew Yorke, Alex Hinton, John Rassmussen, Francis Lefebvre, Myles Zagar, Taylor Reid, just to name a few. You’ll notice that they are all short course athletes. So immediately, doubt about doing well started to creep in. Particularly, I was worried about going there and then making a fool of myself by getting annihilated in the swim, and then not being able to keep pace on the run because I have not being doing nearly as much top end stuff as in previous years. But, a good ass whooping has helped motivate me many times in the past, so I went into it with this thought in mind: “If I do well, that will be motivating. If they kick my ass that will be the push I need to really get things rolling this...

Kansas 5150: It’s How you Deal With It

Monday 21 Jul 2014 Admin
Scenery Riding ‘You have to believe in yourself and with that comes the results. I am normally pretty consistent. But I’ve had many a lousy day. Shit happens. It’s how you deal with it, ya know?” (Tim Don)   Many thanks to Tim Don for saying this. While racing Kansas 5150 today, this quote popped into my head. I love the honesty and candidness of it; but also the truth. So when I realized that it was not to be a stellar day for me, I decided well before I crossed the line that it I would not dwell on it or overthink it; shit happens, and the opportunity lies in what you do with the shit. The past few weeks entailed a very light/off week after Coeur d’Alene, followed by a moderate but still unstructured week, followed then by a week in Bozeman, Montana with Derick’s family. Each one slightly built upon the last but nothing was hard or long. I did do a couple of 3-hr rides in Montana, only because it was a way to enjoy the amazing surroundings. I opted to do Kansas 5150 after CdA as we knew that...

Back into it

Sunday 20 Jul 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
I have had a superb break these last 2 weeks and tomorrow will be back at it. I thought I would be quite mentally fatigued from such a big campaign in Europe (4 half iron distance and 1 ironman in 2 months) but actually I am mentally in very good shape, feeling very enthusiastic and sprightly for the rest of the season. That is the way to tell, last year when I took a break I ended up taking 3-4 weeks off and struggled with my enthusiasm to want to get back into training, I think this was as I was struggling so much with the sinus problems last year and it really took it's toll and now that is behind me I feel so much better. And physically the break of course always does wonders for the body, it will always be hard getting back into the training again but I always find my form bounces back pretty fast with only 2 weeks off and I can feel the effects of the rest in the months down the track.So after making the very long trip back to NZ we got down to celebrating Benji's 3rd birthday...

Mid-Season Update

Saturday 19 Jul 2014 Sarah Haskins
  It has been a whirlwind the past few weeks!  Caroline turned one, we visited with family in Minnesota and now I am recovering from an injury.  The season has taken an unexpected toll, but I am focusing on enjoying time with my daughter and healing.  Here is an update regarding the past few weeks! Two week leading into Minneapolis were extremely tough.  I was desperately attempting to mentally prepare for one of the biggest races of the season (as this was the first race part of the three race Toyota Triple Crown Series); however, my body, physically, was barely hanging on.  I did not know what was wrong.   Towards the end of June, I was doing a hard run on the treadmill, going on and off the treadmill as I was running my intervals (a workout I have rarely done this year).  Towards the end of the short, intense workout, I began to feel a sharp pain on the lower right side of my back.  I figured it may heal up in a few days, but it never really improved after that initial first...

Boulder Peak 5150

Friday 18 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Donna Phelan)
Last Sunday was my return to racing for the 2014 season with the Boulder Peak 5150 (5150 race series meaning the total miles in an Olympic distance triathlon). It was a bit of a last minute decision to enter the race as I had been rehabbing since late March from my foot surgery (neurmoma removal and plantar plate ligament repair). My training had been going well since I came to Boulder the end of May, and a local race seemed like a good chance to get back in the race of things.After focusing on 70.3 and Ironman racing for the last 6 years, I went into this race thinking it would be a walk in the park, but I was quickly proven wrong! I realized about 200m into the swim that a 1500m all out swim is a whole other world of hurt compared to a 4km Ironman swim. And a 40km bike timetrial followed by a fast 10km run? I would have to say that most days I would pick the 180km bike and 42km run of an Ironman!Anyway, back to the race. Despite having to wear running shoes for both transitions...

Triathlon action continues in Glasgow at Commonwealth Games with debut of Mixed Relay

Saturday 26 Jul 2014 Trizone
Glasgow, Scotland (24 July 2014) – The individual races may be over, but triathlon action is far from finished in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games, as the Mixed Relay event remains tomorrow. With 2.6 million people having tuned into the individual races on BBC and a massive crowd on site, Mixed Relay’s debut at the major event is set to be scintillating. Just two weeks after Great Britain became the most successful Federation to hit Mixed Relay as three-time world champions, England will showcase their talents yet again with a team full of those reigning champs. While England had never been on the podium at the Commonwealth Games before Thursday’s individual event, the nation was responsible for four of the six available medals. Though the team has yet to announce its relay members, it’s safe to say that with any its athletes, England has a very solid chance of coming out on top. But all bets are off in Mixed Relay, as we saw two years ago when Great Britain...

Emma Jackson and Ryan Bailie produce 5ths at Commonwealth Games 2014

Saturday 26 Jul 2014 Trizone
Australian triathletes Emma Jackson and Ryan Bailie have both produced fighting fifths in their Commonwealth Games debuts at Strathclyde Park, in Glasgow. Queensland’s 22-year-old Jackson fought till the end of the 10km run after the field had completed two laps of the lake for the 1500m swim and five laps of the undulating bike course. Bailie, 23, also hung in for a battle royal to the finish with Canadian Andrew Yorke, before finishing the best of the Australian men in a race completely dominated by triathlon “supermen” The Brownlee brothers – Alistair and Jonathan, who showed why they are the hottest property in the sport. The women’s race saw Jackson (fifth), Emma Moffatt (seventh) and Ashleigh Gentle (ninth) while in the men’s race it was Bailie (fifth), his training partner Aaron Royle (eighth) and Dan Wilson (ninth). After the 60km bike in the women’s race, staged in hot, energy-sapping conditions, in the middle of the day, Jackson tried desperately to hang on to a group of five...

Nail The Tempo Run

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Jené Shaw
Photo: Shutterstock.com Want to control your race pace? Nail that tempo run in training. Although it’s described slightly differently by many coaches (“Zone 3” or “uncomfortably hard,” for instance), the ever-important tempo run is an essential part of run training to get you race-ready. In Hansons Half-Marathon Method (VeloPress, $18.95), the authors point out the purpose of the tempo: “Tempo runs teach you an important skill: control. Even when the pace feels easy, these runs train you to hold back and maintain.” The Hansons coaches recommend doing tempo runs at goal race pace for the half-marathon distance. The purpose of a tempo run is to increase your running economy at your desired race pace and to raise your lactate threshold, that fine line where your body switches from burning fat to burning carbohydrates. Tempo runs are also when you’ll learn if you went out too hard (or too easy), and they serve as the perfect opportunity to experiment with the nutrition and gear you...

Race Report - Ironman 70.3 Racine

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...

Picky Bars is Growing Up

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Jesse Thomas
When we started Picky Bars four years ago, there wasn’t a whole lot of “strategy” behind it. We didn’t put together a 10 slide presentation, dress up in business suits, and promise investors a 10x return. In fact, my biz school professors would be ashamed at our lack of market research and pro-formas. I don’t . . . → Read More: Picky Bars is Growing Up
