Challenge Vichy

Date: Sunday 31 August 2014 Add To Calendar
Location: Vichy (France)

The swim will be staged in the Lac d’Allier, a 2.5km-long lake that will allow spectators to follow their athletes throughout the course. The two-lap bike course is largely flat, with a few small climbs in the Allier and Puy-de-Dôme departments, with sights that include France’s only volcanoes (the Volcans d’Auvergne) and the Randan forest. The flat four-lap run course will go through the parks of Vichy and along the Allier River.

Photo: Delly Carr/Triathlon.orgThis weekend, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, will host the always exciting ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final, the last event in the extremely competitive eight-race series. The draft-legal format features the speediest short-course athletes in the world battling it out on a multi-loop course in Hawrelak Park for the world champion title. Athletes have accumulated points throughout the season, and the ITU world champion will be determined based on an athlete’s five best finishes. The world championships format changed to a multi-race series from a single-day championship in 2009, so the winner of the Grand Final this weekend won’t necessarily be the world champion.

Treating And Preventing Painful Hernias

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Jordan D. Metzl, M.D.
Photo: iStockA strong core is the best prevention for a painful hernia. The Symptoms Pain in the lower abdomen (a general hernia) or groin (a sportsman’s hernia) that worsens with coughing or sneezing. Sometimes pain that appears to be muscular persists for months and turns out to be from a hernia. What’s Going On In There? A hernia is a tear or weakness
 in the abdominal wall that allows the intestines or another organ 
to get pinched in the gap or push outside the abdomen, usually (but not always) causing pain. A general hernia is usually located in the lower abdomen at hip level. The most common kind of hernia, the inguinal hernia, involves the inguinal canal, which runs through the front wall
 of the abdomen and channels blood and lymph vessels, nerves, the spermatic cord in men, and the round ligament in women from inside the body to closer to the surface. Sections of the intestine or other abdominal organs can poke through at various places along the abdominal wall at the...

I havent had this much fun doing my job in a long long time. After being frustrated by many of the “ho hum” courses lately, the UK course was fantastic! “Semi retired” XTERRA Pros Sam Gardner and Richard Stannard personally built the trails and did an incredible job. The trails were easy (and safe) enough for everyone to ride, but going fast is tricky. Vachery Estate in Surrey, is famous for the scenic  British country side. We home stayed with cycling legend Carl Hutchings and Terry. This was basically the view from our bedroom window.       We made the most of the “Bahamas like weather” this British summer (note #PrincessHotstuff’s summer wear) and visited a nearby town and tried warm beer.

Sorry for delay Challenge Roth race report

Friday 09 Aug 2013 Steffencaroline
“Ich bin mit meinem Schwimmen nicht ganz zufrieden. Ich hatte gehofft, hier unter 50 Minuten schwimmen zu können, weil ich wusste, dass es ein schneller Kurs ist. Ich weiß nicht genau was nach dem Start passiert ist. Ich habe die Gruppe verloren, in der ich eigentlich schwimmen wollte. So bin ich mit Julia aus dem Wasser gestiegen. Darüber war ich im Gegensatz zu ihr nicht wirklich glücklich. Aber mir war auch klar, dass zu diesem Zeitpunkt gerade einmal 50 Minuten des Rennen vorbei waren und noch einige Stunden vor mir lagen. Also habe ich mich aufs Radfahren konzentriert. Auf den ersten 40 Kilometer habe ich mich mich schrecklich gefühlt. Meine Beine haben nicht das gemacht, was sie machen sollten. In der zweiten Runde habe ich mich dann besser gefühlt. Leider war die Gruppe, in der ich saß ein bisschen zu langsam, so dass ich zwei Optionen hatte: mich in Stücke zu reißen, damit eine oder zwei Minuten herauszufahren und den Marathon zu Fuß zu gehen oder in der Gruppe zu...

May @Leysin – camp in the Swiss mountains

Friday 07 Jun 2013 Steffencaroline
Ist 4 weeks now since I`m back in Leysin to spend the European summer with teamTBB and coach Brett. Training going well and all the hill work already pays off. Its my 4th camp in the Swiss mountains and I still love it like the first time. The view up here is breathtaking (even for a Swiss girl) and the ride/run just cant get any better. I dont know how many time in the last 4 years I did “the loop” but I never get bored of it and if I do, I just go around the counterclockwise. May 2013 was a bit of a nasty,wet and cold month incl. of 36 hours of not stop snowing … which gave coach nearly a breakdown at he pool one morning. No springtime in Switzerland this year, just snow all may and the cows which try to find some green didn`t looked very happy either. I know my muscles and also maybe my attitude doasn`t have a very good relationship with this conditions but what can I do, I`ve to get out there and give it a go. One Morning I had to run a marathon and it was...

IM Melbourne – Gescheiterte Titelverteidigung

Thursday 28 Mar 2013 Steffencaroline
Etwas enttäuscht und trotzdem irgendwie glücklich es doch noch ins Ziel geschafft zu haben, lief ich letzten Sonntag als 3e am IRONMAN Melbourne ins Ziel. Titelverteidigung misslungen – doch alles gegeben. Mit einer kleine Erkältung in der Woche davor war meine Vorbereitung nicht optimal doch ich wollte es trotzdem versuchen und mein Bestes geben. Da lief einfach gar nichts. Ich hatte schon auf dem Rad mühe mein Rennen/ Rhythmus zu finden, die Beine wollten nicht so recht, keinen Druck keine Kraft. Musste deutlich mehr Nahrung zu mir nehmen weil ich mehrere Male in einen Hungerast fiel. Doch ich wusste ich musste es irgendwie ins Ziel schaffen um meinen Start in Kona zu sichern. Ich versuchte mich auf dem Rad durch zu kämpfen und hoffte auch einen etwas besseren Marathon Lauf. Die ersten 20km liefen dann auch erstaunlich rund. Ich fasste wieder etwas Mut und versuchte locker und fokussiert zu bleiben, so kann ich es ev ja sogar in die Top 3 noch schaffen. Dann km 25, schon...
