A day in its entirety…

Wednesday 01 Oct 2014 Lsanderstri
Bike Workout I put a plug out in my last post for some ideas on what to write about. The topic that seemed to come up most is nutrition. I thought about just writing a few days worth of what I eat, but I thought that might be a little boring, and a bit far removed from everyday reality i.e. when each item is consumed. So instead I figured I would do a post something to the tune of “a day in the life…” (Thanks Stephen C. for the idea!). In this post I have included just about everything I did today, but in the interest of taste, I omitted washroom breaks. So here it goes: Alarm went off at 7:15 a.m. Hit snooze. Got out of bed at 8 a.m. Ate a big bowl of frosted flakes and a coffee with three sugar and two cream (460 cal.) At 9:15 a.m. I started my run workout. Run workout: 5mi w/u to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.17miR@7.0mph) to 5.0mi@10.5mph with 1miR@8.0mph to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.17miR@7.0mph) to 2x(2.5mi@10.5mph with 0.5miR@7.0mph) to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.27miR@7.0mph) to 4x(1.25mi@10.5mph...

Hands on Coaching

Monday 22 Sep 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
(Riding in Bend, OR)While the general medium that many coaches work in, including the best coaches in the world, is that of the internet and emails, text messages and Race Day/Training Peaks files, the most immersive medium is seeing an athlete with your own eyes and getting some one on one time with them.  With that in mind I headed up to the Pacific Northwest two weeks ago to meet with my Seattle crew.  I've got a collection of athletes (current, former, and future) in the area and such a trip allows me to get to know them better, evaluate various elements of their training approach, and nitpick on the technical aspects of swim and run form as well as bike fit and aerodynamics.  This isn't the first time I've had such trips but the first time I've decided to talk about it.  While it would seem that doing some of these things via FaceTime or Skype would be possible it's not the same as being there and being able to manipulate body positions or evaluate form from a...

An open letter to Ironman CEO.

Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 Pete Jacobs
To Andrew Messick CEO World Triathlon Corporation I wish I wasn’t wasting my time writing this. But I’ve already wasted far too much energy dwelling on this since it was said and I don’t want it to be an issue between us any longer as it is Kona race week next week and we will surely cross paths. Well I know we will cross paths since I am invited to the pre race press conference as your 2012 Ironman World Champion. It’s been 7 weeks since you alluded that I was unprofessional in that infamous slowtwitch.com article referenced below. http://www.slowtwitch.com/Interview/Messick_explains_the_changes_4511.html I waited, and a tiny part of me thought perhaps you would make contact to clear the air, and perhaps even apologize for suggesting my painful 11:42 Ironman validation unprofessional, and for comparing me, and indirectly all professional triathletes, to a professional cyclist. For you to suggest the two sports are even remotely similar and requiring similar effort to compete in was...

A quick bike change

Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 Tim
Alstonville_NSW Nothing like noticing something just before a big race. Well, thankfully I noticed a very small crack in my frame before getting my Giant Trinity on the plane bound for Kona. Ohh the perils of travelling with bikes. Thankfully Giant were able to source a new frame for me and now I’m ready to power along the Queen K. While my frame was getting replaced by the folks at CYC in Brisbane, I headed out for a quick spin on my super-fast Giant Propel.

Ironman Training

Monday 29 Sep 2014 Lsanderstri
Bike Portion of Brick These first few weeks of Ironman training have certainly been a learning experience. I thought the transition from 70.3 to 140.6 would be smooth and seamless, but it has not been. What I have struggled with most is how to organize the training properly, and what sort of progression to utilize. It is so long and submaximal that it is difficult to ascertain what types of workouts are most important. The first few weeks have been nothing but trial and error. One thing I have definitely learned is that the body needs time to adapt. At the beginning of this block I thought I would be able to just instantly increase the mileage in a lot of my workouts, particularly my bike workouts. Unfortunately, this has proven to be an unrealistic endeavour. I now think a realistic and sustainable number to be able to increase workouts by is 30 minutes each week. Going into 70.3 Worlds my bike workouts tended to last about 2 hours 30 minutes. I had intended on increasing them instantly to 4 hours, but the...

My Time in Kona – Sept 26

How to increase your Kona Performance: Two Weeks Out

Sunday 28 Sep 2014 Dirk
000_D4S2626 There are less than two weeks till the big dance in Kona, and this is a specific and crucial time. Every athlete is now in taper mode or about to start the real tapering before the race. Fatigue is still pretty strong and the body is crying for more rest and sleep. Most athletes are in Kona or starting to travel to the island now. Training in race like conditions is an absolute by this point. Many athletes are getting a bit tense and starting to seek privacy. I believe this is pretty normal given the stress that the body is going through at the moment. Not to mention, for the pros, several media requests will be rolling in and race week will already be jammed packed with appointments. The best thing to do at the moment is to focus on getting the last few big sessions under your belt and not making too many appointments to meet up with friends and fellow athletes. It is nice to see each other on the island and there are many stories to be told about the past few weeks and races, but...

Hello World!

winter training Dear Friends, Opening http://www.shellzworld.com, please enter your username and password…..hmm…mental blank.  oh dear.  Password forgotten!!  Yes it has been THAT long since logging in to my blog.   Not that I should be surprised.  My last post was dated Feb 15th 2014…….OMG.  Ooops!  That really was many many full moons ago!!  Overdue is probably a massive understatement.  More like expired and close to being buried in the graveyard.   However, 7 months on, I have finally decided to bring “Words from Wustar” back to life :-)  Not that I really know where to start…..I’ve only done 4 races since!   Huski Long Course, Challenge Batemans Bay, Philippines 70.3, and most recently Sunshine Coast 70.3.  All races have thrown up various challenges (expected and unexpected), and to be truthful, results are really nothing to be excited about.  Maybe that’s why I haven’t bothered to blog much.  After all who wants to read a book or list of excuses anyway?  This went wrong, that...

What Now??

Sunday 28 Sep 2014 Admin
As always it has been a crazy few months with many high’s and low’s that are all part of the emotional roller coaster and life of a Professional Triathlete! Guy sums it up nicely in pictures and few words here: http://www.guycrawford.us/news.php This was done a few days before Ironman Lake Tahoe! I was pretty excited about the opportunity to do this race. I had a little bit longer taper than normal but better to be fresh than over done!! It was also the last chance for Professional’s to race in Tahoe as it will be a non-Pro race next year. Plus it is just stunning! Guy and I arrived 10 days early to adjust to the altitude and know everything we can about the course. We both felt good and ready to go come race day! But as you know by now the Ironman was unfortunately cancelled! Massive fires in California had resulted in excessive amounts of smoke being blown in and trapped in the Lake Tahoe area. A few days out weather forecasts were showing the wind changing...

I’m supporting Ride for HeartKids

Saturday 27 Sep 2014 Tim
31 I got into triathlon to keep fit in the footy off-season. Sports are something I have always enjoyed and been lucky enough to be good at. Recently I was approached to be a Sporting Ambassador for the Ride for HeartKids, a cycling charity event which raises money for HeartKids Australia. HeartKids are Aussie children who suffer from Childhood Heart Disease (CHD). Many of them will never have the opportunity to play sport, ride a bike, run or swim. And for no reason other then they were born with something wrong with their heart. Still these kids show an amazing amount of strength, persistence and a dare to dream. I’m proud to become the Ride for HeartKids first Sporting Ambassador and help spread awareness of this great event. Anyone can join the Ride for HeartKids. Check them out at website or at their Facebook page. Joining Ride for HeartKids If you spend a lot of time on your bike, training, racing, getting to and from work, or just because you can, why not consider joining the...

Update-Muskoka race report, and IMCHOO thoughts too!

Thursday 25 Sep 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Jennie Hansen)
   Well!  I'm a delinquent blogger yet again, but I figured I'd get up a bit of a Muskoka race report, as well as a few thoughts as I head into IM Chattanooga this weekend!  First up, Muskoka.  It was a few weeks ago now, but luckily, I remember the misery fairly clearly ;)  Two weeks before the race, I put in some of my highest volumes and intensities outside of camps ever, I had some really good sessions, I was feeling pretty good about everything.  Then race week...BAM.  I was still supposed to be putting in some good sessions in order to prep for Chattanooga, but my body had other plans.  I basically just slept.  And ate.  And retained fluid and felt like a miserable, bloated, fatass.  I spent time on google, convincing myself that I was clearly iron deficient, had hypothyroidism, was probably getting a mystery virus like before Cabo again, had some sort of autoimmune disease, and had contracted ebola.  I basically...

Micha freut sich aufs Rügen-Debüt

Thursday 11 Sep 2014 Julia Böttner
Binz 2014Am Sonntag steht die Premiere des Strandräuber Ironman 70.3 in Binz auf dem Programm – Rostocker möchte nach Platz drei am Walchsee gutes Heimspiel zeigen  Rostock. Mit großer Vorfreude startet Michael Raelert an diesem Wochenende in die Erstauflage des Strandräuber Ironman 70.3 Rügen. 1300 Athleten aus 34 Nationen gehen am Sonntag bei der Premiere des Wettkampfes über 1,9 Kilometer Schwimmen, 90 Kilometer Radfahren und 21,1 Kilometer Laufen ins Rennen. „Ich bin sehr gespannt darauf, was uns alle erwartet“, sagt Michael Raelert vor dem Startschuss im Ostseebad Binz. „Für mich als Rostocker ist es ja eine Art Heimspiel. Von daher freue ich mich ganz besonders auf den Sonntag.“Zwei Wochen nach seinem dritten Platz bei der Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl möchte Michael Raelert das gute Debüt in Österreich mit einem gelungenen Rennen auf der Ostseeinsel bestätigen. „Am Walchsee hatte ich gleich zu meinem Einstand nach meiner langen Wettkampfpause einen richtig harten Vergleich“,...

1st Lanzarote 70.3

Thursday 25 Sep 2014 Will
lanzabike2 I had an amazing week in Lanzarote. Took a big, hard earned win against some great athletes, caught up with 1/2 of the Uplace-BMC Team and spent lots of time relaxing before and after the race at the Active Sands Beach resort in the sun.  I have to say that things were really rolling in my favour ever since returning from Mt Tremblant World 70.3 Champs. I was carrying a lot of fitness from my time altitude training in Boulder and after the race in Canada I had renewed confidence, and was sufficiently sharp and race fit plus after 2 weeks backing off I was pretty fresh as well. The field had some very good names but most notably, my main threat was the animal Victor Del Corral who killed me by almost 5 minutes last year on the same course. He’s one of the best guys in the Ironman World, racking up amazing run splits and to make it worse this is his favourite course! He also lives here full time which makes him a little bit invincible in this race! Other then that, to be honest I...

Coach Mel: 60 Minute Workout - Four Minute Hills

Wednesday 24 Sep 2014 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
2013 Utah champs This session was originally posted online with Triathlon Magazine Canada September 16, 2014 at http://triathlonmagazine.ca/racing/profiles/sixty-minute-bike-workout-mels-max-hill-reps/ {jcomments on} With the XTERRAWorld Championships coming up for some of us, this week’s 60 minute training session focuses on working your maximum climbing power.  You can do it on the trainer or use a short hill that allows you to climb for a minimum of four minutes at maximum effort.  Your heart rate should reach over 90 per cent of your maximum by the end so don’t be afraid to really go for it.   Warmup (10 minutes): Start with a 10 minute warmup slowly increasing cadence as you ride.  In the last five minutes increase cadence by  five rpm per minute up to the maximum cadence you can hold (aim for 130 rpm or more) in a relatively easy gear or low wattage:  something like 39 x 17 or 100 watts on the Powerbeam.   Final warm up preparation...

The Kona Contenders 2014 – The Men’s Threats

Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 Admin
A626E07F6C38443AAF1379E13EEDAF80   Tim Bradley In part one of the 2014 Kona Contender Series, the focus was on the dark-horses who could shake up this year’s Ironman World Championship. In this article, the spotlight moves to those who are genuine threats to upset the favourites. Photo: Finisherpix.com Ivan Raña (ESP) The Path to Kona Ivan Raña’s qualification campaign to return to Kona in 2014 began with last year’s respective World Championship events. Coming into the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in September after completing an Ironman events in July, Raña gritted his teeth to a 14th-place finish. Despite missing out on a prize money placing,  he at least walked away from the experience with some valuable Kona Pro Ranking (KPR) points. At the 2013 Ironman World Championship Raña could only muster the 16th-fastest bike split, but from the ashes rose the phoenix and he went on to crush a 2:47:54 marathon. The spirited effort rescued sixth-place finish and secured the Spaniard some prize...

A day in its entirety…

Wednesday 01 Oct 2014 Lsanderstri
Bike Workout I put a plug out in my last post for some ideas on what to write about. The topic that seemed to come up most is nutrition. I thought about just writing a few days worth of what I eat, but I thought that might be a little boring, and a bit far removed from everyday reality i.e. when each item is consumed. So instead I figured I would do a post something to the tune of “a day in the life…” (Thanks Stephen C. for the idea!). In this post I have included just about everything I did today, but in the interest of taste, I omitted washroom breaks. So here it goes: Alarm went off at 7:15 a.m. Hit snooze. Got out of bed at 8 a.m. Ate a big bowl of frosted flakes and a coffee with three sugar and two cream (460 cal.) At 9:15 a.m. I started my run workout. Run workout: 5mi w/u to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.17miR@7.0mph) to 5.0mi@10.5mph with 1miR@8.0mph to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.17miR@7.0mph) to 2x(2.5mi@10.5mph with 0.5miR@7.0mph) to 2x(0.63mi@11.5mph with 0.27miR@7.0mph) to 4x(1.25mi@10.5mph...

Hands on Coaching

Monday 22 Sep 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
(Riding in Bend, OR)While the general medium that many coaches work in, including the best coaches in the world, is that of the internet and emails, text messages and Race Day/Training Peaks files, the most immersive medium is seeing an athlete with your own eyes and getting some one on one time with them.  With that in mind I headed up to the Pacific Northwest two weeks ago to meet with my Seattle crew.  I've got a collection of athletes (current, former, and future) in the area and such a trip allows me to get to know them better, evaluate various elements of their training approach, and nitpick on the technical aspects of swim and run form as well as bike fit and aerodynamics.  This isn't the first time I've had such trips but the first time I've decided to talk about it.  While it would seem that doing some of these things via FaceTime or Skype would be possible it's not the same as being there and being able to manipulate body positions or evaluate form from a...

An open letter to Ironman CEO.

Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 Pete Jacobs
To Andrew Messick CEO World Triathlon Corporation I wish I wasn’t wasting my time writing this. But I’ve already wasted far too much energy dwelling on this since it was said and I don’t want it to be an issue between us any longer as it is Kona race week next week and we will surely cross paths. Well I know we will cross paths since I am invited to the pre race press conference as your 2012 Ironman World Champion. It’s been 7 weeks since you alluded that I was unprofessional in that infamous slowtwitch.com article referenced below. http://www.slowtwitch.com/Interview/Messick_explains_the_changes_4511.html I waited, and a tiny part of me thought perhaps you would make contact to clear the air, and perhaps even apologize for suggesting my painful 11:42 Ironman validation unprofessional, and for comparing me, and indirectly all professional triathletes, to a professional cyclist. For you to suggest the two sports are even remotely similar and requiring similar effort to compete in was...

A quick bike change

Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 Tim
Alstonville_NSW Nothing like noticing something just before a big race. Well, thankfully I noticed a very small crack in my frame before getting my Giant Trinity on the plane bound for Kona. Ohh the perils of travelling with bikes. Thankfully Giant were able to source a new frame for me and now I’m ready to power along the Queen K. While my frame was getting replaced by the folks at CYC in Brisbane, I headed out for a quick spin on my super-fast Giant Propel.

Ironman Training

Monday 29 Sep 2014 Lsanderstri
Bike Portion of Brick These first few weeks of Ironman training have certainly been a learning experience. I thought the transition from 70.3 to 140.6 would be smooth and seamless, but it has not been. What I have struggled with most is how to organize the training properly, and what sort of progression to utilize. It is so long and submaximal that it is difficult to ascertain what types of workouts are most important. The first few weeks have been nothing but trial and error. One thing I have definitely learned is that the body needs time to adapt. At the beginning of this block I thought I would be able to just instantly increase the mileage in a lot of my workouts, particularly my bike workouts. Unfortunately, this has proven to be an unrealistic endeavour. I now think a realistic and sustainable number to be able to increase workouts by is 30 minutes each week. Going into 70.3 Worlds my bike workouts tended to last about 2 hours 30 minutes. I had intended on increasing them instantly to 4 hours, but the...
