Nach Mandurah wartet Ballarat auf Micha

Friday 14 Nov 2014 Julia Böttner
16. Nov. 2014Zweiter Start in Australien am Sonntag  – Nach dem Erfolg in Mandurah peilt der 34-Jährige beim Ironman 70.3 Ballarat den nächsten Sieg an – Lust auf jedes Rennen Ballarat. Am Sonntag tritt Michael Raelert zu seinem zweiten Rennen in Australien an. Nach seinem Sieg beim Ironman 70.3 Mandurah am vergangenen Wochenende in Westaustralien möchte der 34-Jährige nun beim Ironman 70.3 Ballarat im Südosten Australiens an diesen Erfolg anknüpfen. „Der Sieg in Mandurah war ein großes Erlebnis für mich – ich hoffe, dass mir nun ein weiteres schnelles Rennen gelingt. Die letzten Wochen waren insgesamt schon sehr intensiv, aber ich fühle mich gut und ich habe Lust auf jedes einzelne Rennen. Es ist einfach ein schönes Gefühl, dass ich mich nach meiner langen verletzungsbedingten Pause dorthin zurückarbeiten kann, wo ich vorher war.“In Ballarat möchte Michael Raelert am Sonntag im fünften Rennen nach seiner langen Auszeit den vierten Sieg in Folge feiern. „Die letzten Wettkämpfe waren...

Micha brilliert bei Ironman 70.3 Mandurah

Monday 10 Nov 2014 Julia Böttner
AustralienHerausragendes Rennen gegen Top-Konkurrenz in Australien – Starke Leistungen in allen Disziplinen – Rostocker kommt nahe an seine Weltbestzeit heran Mandurah. Mit einer starken Leistung hat Michael Raelert den SunSmart Ironman 70.3 Mandurah für sich entschieden. In 3:35:55 Stunden gewann der 34-Jährige das Rennen an der australischen Westküste überlegen, beim Laufen setzte er sich deutlich von den beiden Australiern Tim Reed (3:38:42) und Christian Kemp (3:39:43) ab. „Das war heute ein hartes Stück Arbeit“, sagte Michael Raelert, „das Ergebnis kann sich dafür aber auch wirklich sehen lassen. Das Rennen war von Beginn an sehr schnell und hat sich gut angefühlt. Wenn am Ende eine solche Zeit dabei herausspringt, dann ist es umso schöner.“ Zwischenzeitlich lag Michael Raelert sogar auf einem so schnellen Kurs, dass die Verbesserung seiner eigenen Weltbestzeit im Ironman 70.3 von 3:34:04 Stunden möglich schien. Diese hatte er am 14. November 2009 beim Gewinn seines ersten...

Going With The Flow

Wednesday 20 Aug 2014 Bellalux
Melbourne Now walk towards a river…pick up a leaf…place your thought on the leaf….watch it float down the stream…let it go…let it drift away.   Coastal trails in Melbourne Those were the words of a psychologist who I recently had some interactions with. She was helping me with mindfulness mediation.  Mindfulness isn’t always easy. In this instance, her cue words didn’t quite resonate with me (maybe I’m too cynical) ..…in fact the little voice in my head blurted out, “the current is too strong for my thoughts to float down the river.’’  I guess my mind on that day was behaving like a river with a class III rapids classification- moderate, irregular waves that may be difficult to avoid and which can swamp an open canoe.   By no means is my life anything but charmed.  I do not pretend that I suffer anything more than first world problems.  Put into the context of what is happening in Gaza, the Ukraine or even Ferguson Missouri, I am lucky, incredibly lucky.  Yet, there is no point in...

Infrared Sauna as an Everyday Training Tool

Monday 24 Nov 2014 Lesley
There’s no denying that taking a sauna makes you feel good. But in the never-ending battle to contain, and hopefully overcome, athletic injury and illness, and help muscles damaged by a hard training day, a well-used weapon in my armory is my own even more specialized Clearlight infrared sauna. Long story short, from my perspective, it utilizes far infrared heat to improve my immune system, remove toxins, and relieve my endless muscle pains. You sweat in a sauna. Of course you do. But not many people realize that when you sweat in an infrared sauna you get rid of built up toxins and toxic metals by increasing the blood circulation. The immune system also benefits from the increase in core body temperature, essentially inducing an artificial fever, which in turn accelerates the immune response. Overall health improves as a result. My Clearlight infrared sauna also helps relieve muscle pain by increasing blood circulation, which both takes away waste and brings oxygen-rich blood to my...

Boulder 70.3

Wednesday 25 Jun 2014 Admin
IMG_2119 I’m a little late but here it is – a few words about my Boulder 70.3 race last week – my 2nd 2nd in two weeks.   This was the first time I’ve done the “dirty double” although I can see that the DD is old news:  I know at least two people who went on to do the triple.  Two was enough for me! When I hatched this plan my coach, Dave Scott wasn’t completely convinced but understood my wish to blow away the race cobwebs.  As it turns out I think we were both glad that Boulder 70.3 gave me the chance to right some of the less pleasing aspects of my Kansas race.  Kansas was by no means a disaster but I did feel dissatisfied with my race.  In a nutshell: it just hadn’t hurt enough and I wanted to hurt! There were a few distractions during the week between:  a drive back from Kansas on Monday, buying a house with Brett on Tuesday and packing up our old place the rest of week.  All good for keeping relaxed ahead of race day! Race Day: I love my...

The Rules - Preamble (23.11.14)

Sunday 23 Nov 2014 Corinne
I'm sure many of you are familiar with The Rules. Whether specifically in accordance with Keepers of the Cog or more generally because you have a modicum of social awareness and adapt your behaviour accordingly. Obviously I'm a triathlete, The Rules are written for cyclists. Make of this what you will.

Relentlessly optimistically positive (12.02.14)

Wednesday 12 Feb 2014 Corinne
Now don't get me wrong, it is my understanding that we need to have positivity in order to cancel out the negativity. The negativity that should be shot. Put in a bag and thrown in the glacial river. Covered in jam and left infront of the wasps nest. Zapped. Kerpow'd. And generally vapourised out of existence. But what if there was a third option...?

Using Ozone in Medical Treatment

Thursday 13 Nov 2014 Lesley
Rehab and treatment for injury march to the beat of their own drum. And sometimes, especially with athletic injuries, everything is far from being simply black and white. To make matters even more complex, often what seems to work best for one athlete, doesn’t work well at all for the next. One thing is sure though, mainstream medicine definitely doesn’t have all the answers. Sometimes you have to encompass medical techniques and technologies that are not mainstream. For example, 30 years ago acupuncture, although a staple diet in the Far East for thousands of years, was barely on the radar in the West. Now though it is often seen as borderline mainstream in Western medicine. In my painfully extensive rehab experience, one technology that keeps coming up is the use of ozone, which is an oxidizer. Apart from purifying water, ozone can also be used to destroy parasites and bacteria – two things that I’m unwittingly through personal experience becoming an expert on! Ozone is produced by a...

FAST & FURIOUS IN OCEANSIDE

Friday 31 Oct 2014 Luke McKenzie
photo (14) I enjoyed jumping in the final race of Lifetime Fitness series in Oceanside this past weekend. It was awesome to have such a high profile race so close to home and it was a great opportunity to utilize some post Kona fitness. Well … I was more “hoping” the fitness was still there. I hadn’t really done much training since Hawaii but I know in the past I seem to carry good form for a week or two after Ironman so it was worth a shot. Much to the theme of this year my swim wasn’t in front group which meant I had to ride my way back into the race. I felt really strong on the bike and by the time I racked my Scott Plasma 5 I was in 3rd place having recorded the second fastest bike split. The fatigue from Kona was still definitely in my legs on the run and the twisty, turny, up and down nature of the course wasn’t all that kind on tired legs but I stayed strong and was happy to finish a respectable 9th in a very strong short course field. Life Time...

MY THOUGHTS ON KONA 2014

Thursday 23 Oct 2014 Luke McKenzie
luke-run-alli I have had a week to think about Kona 2014 and a day that didn’t go to plan. Going into the event with high expectations after finishing second in 2013 I guess only a repeat result (or one better) was going to appear a success. In the days post race it was a little frustrating that people kept saying to me “sorry you had a bad race”. I know it wasn’t a win, a podium or top ten but I also think that 15th on a rough day isn’t all that “bad” at the Ironman World Championships. On a day where over 20 pro men didn’t finish it was satisfying to fight and not take the easy option. I owe more to my family, friends, sponsors and supporters than to quit simply because I wasn’t contending for the win. The truth about my day was I never fired. My swim had been struggling all year and I thought I had addressed issues there to get it back to where it should be. Clearly that wasn’t the case and I started the bike three minutes behind the...

Cairns 70.3 Race Report

Wednesday 06 Jun 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Sam Appleton)
I decided to race Cairns 70.3 about 9 weeks out from the race. I thought that this would have been enough time to prepare myself and condition my body to cope with the demands of racing a 70.3 at a high level and post a solid result. My training leading into the race was solid, and I could see myself getting fitter as I trained through the two months. I was happy with how I was progressing, especially in my run. I increased my volume and was able to train harder and post some really quality run sets that gave me confidence leading into the race.There was some good names lining up for the 70.3 which included Pete Jacobs, Josh Rix, Luke Mckenzie and Tim Berkel to name a few. I wasn’t intimidated by these big names, but more excited to test myself against some of the best 70.3 athletes in Australia. I got off to a good start in the swim and was leading the first 500m. I have been trying to do as little swimming as I can but making sure i maintain some level of fitness and speed (usually...

A Recap of 2014 in PHOTO'S

Thursday 20 Nov 2014 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
 It's been a full and stellar year of racing and adventure after my setback last year of dealing with a PE in April and being forced to take a bit of a break. It felt so good to be back and racing away, especially the feeling of crossing the finish line of first race back at Oceanside. I got emotional... it felt like I won after everything that I went through!!  I probably could have stopped after that but you know me... I'm always in the fast lane ahead, filling up my schedule to the the brim and therefore crammed so many races in the beginning of the season all the way till the end where I eventually tuckered out! Apparently I'm not the energizer bunny. :) Thankfully the season comes to an end and I can celebrate the year and look forward to the next!!! The holiday season has arrived. WoohooSooo here is the recap of 2014- (mostly photo's)Here are some photo's of some of the work I did this year alongside with my sponsors!!!March 29th- Oceanside 70.3- 13th (stellar field as...

Push, shove, force-but I'm still standing

Wednesday 12 Nov 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Jennie Hansen)
  After a tooth implant that ended up not taking, missed training time, and a longer than expected recovery after Chattanooga, the decision was made to change my fall IM from Arizona to Cozumel.  Sometimes, two extra weeks can be key.  What this means right now is that I just made it through my final overload of the year.  This training block featured plenty of volume, a few lackluster 5ks, an actual swim meet (with a few awesome flops off the diving block), a return of some form of tolerance for the pool (for now), a few nailed workouts, a couple of very long days, but, most glaringly in my mind, a few rides that ended up with me laying in piles of clothes, wanting nothing more than to sleep instead, and a couple of missed runs afterwards.  But, if I've learned anything this year, it's that triathlon, well, like life, sometimes just isn't going to go according to plan.  There's pushing, there's shoving, and then there's forcing.  And forcing, well,...

Easy like Tuesday Morning. . .Why I prefere AM workouts & 5 Tactics for becoming an Early Bird

Wednesday 19 Nov 2014 Admin
                                                                              Seems there’s a reason that Lionel Richie went with “Sunday” and not “Tuesday” in his Easy Like Sunday Morning song.  At least, that’s what I was thinking this morning at 5:30 AM when the alarm went off.  <Lyrics HERE if, like me, you now can’t get that one line out of your head.>  For some reason, it was extra tough to get up this morning. . . I think I’ll blame it on the shorter days & NOT the wine I had with last night’s dinner : ) It’s strange, because normally, I throw off the covers, bounce out of bed, and tap dance over to the kitchen, where I down a few shots of wheatgrass. . .all before the alarm has even gone off. I kiiid, I kiiiiiiid. In truth, I do start just about every day before 5:30 AM.  Some days are relatively easy, some almost unbearable. NEVER, Never, ever have I not thought about just rolling over and...

Mel McQuaid 70.3 Ballarat recap

Mel McQuaid 70.3 Ballarat recap

Tuesday 18 Nov 2014 [Triathlon News]

I flew from 11 hours from Maui to Honolulu to Auckland, laid over 7 hours, then flew 8 hours to Perth on November the 1st -hoping to start my Australian campaign at the Aussie Championship in Mandurah. Unfortunately, that much time in the germ tube and airports meant that by my second day in Australia I went down for the count. Five full days of illness and inactivity followed, which meant I missed the event altogether. I was devastated. I think I was the worst homestay athlete ever given al more

Sportsmanship Rules The Day At Laguna Phuket Triathlon

Sunday 23 Nov 2014 Triathlete.com
Massimo Cigana (ITA), known equally for his stylish dress as for his success in Thailand, proudly claimed his fourth victory at Sunday’s Laguna Phuket Triathlon, an honor he shared with countryman Alberto Casadei (ITA). The two arrived to the finish chute together and, rather than sprint it out in a duel to the line they hoisted an Italian flag in unison to the delight of the crowds, clocking identical finish times of 2:33:57. Mitchell Robins (AUS) followed closely behind, just 17 seconds later. In the women’s race, rookie pro Parys Edwards (GBR) captured her first Laguna Phuket title in a time of 2:54:53. Belinda Granger (AUS) was thrilled to finish second in her 12th and final professional appearance in the island paradise, and Katja Rabe (GER), a Phuket local originally from Germany scored third on her adopted home turf. Check back soon for more details on the professional race. Complete Laguna Phuket Triathlon results are available here. RELATED – Dispatch: Challenge Laguna...

AustralienHerausragendes Rennen gegen Top-Konkurrenz in Australien – Starke Leistungen in allen Disziplinen – Rostocker kommt nahe an seine Weltbestzeit heran Mandurah.

Going With The Flow

Wednesday 20 Aug 2014 Bellalux
Melbourne Now walk towards a river…pick up a leaf…place your thought on the leaf….watch it float down the stream…let it go…let it drift away.   Coastal trails in Melbourne Those were the words of a psychologist who I recently had some interactions with. She was helping me with mindfulness mediation.  Mindfulness isn’t always easy. In this instance, her cue words didn’t quite resonate with me (maybe I’m too cynical) ..…in fact the little voice in my head blurted out, “the current is too strong for my thoughts to float down the river.’’  I guess my mind on that day was behaving like a river with a class III rapids classification- moderate, irregular waves that may be difficult to avoid and which can swamp an open canoe.   By no means is my life anything but charmed.  I do not pretend that I suffer anything more than first world problems.  Put into the context of what is happening in Gaza, the Ukraine or even Ferguson Missouri, I am lucky, incredibly lucky.  Yet, there is no point in...

Infrared Sauna as an Everyday Training Tool

Monday 24 Nov 2014 Lesley
There’s no denying that taking a sauna makes you feel good. But in the never-ending battle to contain, and hopefully overcome, athletic injury and illness, and help muscles damaged by a hard training day, a well-used weapon in my armory is my own even more specialized Clearlight infrared sauna. Long story short, from my perspective, it utilizes far infrared heat to improve my immune system, remove toxins, and relieve my endless muscle pains. You sweat in a sauna. Of course you do. But not many people realize that when you sweat in an infrared sauna you get rid of built up toxins and toxic metals by increasing the blood circulation. The immune system also benefits from the increase in core body temperature, essentially inducing an artificial fever, which in turn accelerates the immune response. Overall health improves as a result. My Clearlight infrared sauna also helps relieve muscle pain by increasing blood circulation, which both takes away waste and brings oxygen-rich blood to my...
