Ironman Frankfurt

Date: Sunday 03 July 2016 Add To Calendar
Location: Frankfurt (Germany)

The 3.8 kilometer (2.4 mile) swim at the Frankfurter Sparkasse Ironman European Championship is a two loop affair in the Langenaar Waldsee, a lake about 12 kilometers from the race centre in Frankfurt. The bike course is both fast, and technical. After riding out of T1 at Langener Waldsee, the athletes do about a 12km ride into Frankfurt where the start the rest of the course, which is made up of two loops. The run course in Frankfurt consists of three 14km laps. The course is made up of a series of out-and-back sections on either side of the River Main. The course looks like it should be fast -- it's very flat. It's tough to post a fast time here, though, because there are a number of turns -- both 180 degree turns at each of the four turnaround points, and the tricky roundabouts to negotiate over the bridge that the runners negotiate a couple of times each lap.

Wins in Rio and the Philippines crown the weekend for the Bahrain Endurance 13

Tuesday 04 Aug 2015 [Triathlon News]

The minimum Javier Gomez needed to do was get on the podium at the 2015 Rio de Janeiro Olympic test event, but the Spaniard went above and beyond by taking top honors to earn himself and Spain a sure spot in the 2016 Olympics men’s triathlon start list. He said, “I was saving some energy for the last two laps of the run because I am training for World Championships, so it was nice to win. I wouldn’t say it was easy, but it was controlled so I am really happy.” more

Four Ways To Use … Peaches

Monday 03 Aug 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David Becker Peaches are the ultimate treat during the summer months—that’s when they peak in flavor and sweetness. And as a powerhouse of vitamins A and C, which are both strong antioxidants known to boost immunity, they’re good for you too. Peaches also contain a significant amount of selenium, a mineral that has been shown to lower the risk of certain cancers as well as promote thyroid health. In addition to being a tasty ingredient in green salads, smoothies and fruit salsas, there are other creative ways to take advantage of this in-season stone fruit. Make sure to explore the varieties of white and yellow peaches, as they both work well in these four recipes. Summery Peach Couscous Juicy peaches make a great addition to rice, quinoa, farro and couscous salads. Cook 1½ cups dry couscous according to the instructions. Let cool slightly and toss with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, the juice and zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon sea salt and ½ teaspoon...

How To Nail The Tempo Run—Plus 3 Workouts To Try

Monday 03 Aug 2015 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...

Inside My Gear Bag With Michelle Vesterby

Monday 03 Aug 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David BeckerDanish pro Michelle Vesterby has had consistent top performances since her first season as a pro in 2012. That year, she won Ironman Lanzarote and placed 12th in her Ironman Hawaii debut. She’s since followed that up with multiple Ironman podium finishes (in Cozumel, Arizona and Los Cabos) as well as a top-10 Kona finish in 2013. Despite a rocky start to 2015, partly due to a bike crash in Monaco, Vesterby is optimistic about her 2015 season. The globetrotting pro (and lover of pink) offers a look at her triathlon essentials.

Post-op update: give me back my broken parts

Sunday 02 Aug 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Jennie Hansen)
   Well, I had a good 30 year run of no major dental work, no acutely broken bones, no surgeries, and never even taking painkillers for anything.  I guess that's a good enough track record, given that I've spent ~25 years in organized sports of some sort.  Then I turned 30 on 9/29.  On 10/1, dental implant #1 went in; on 10/29, it fell out (1+29=30).  11/30 was my crash.  I was sick on 12/30.  Dental implant #2 went in on 3/30.  5/30 was the last long bike/run I did before the ominous hip pain started.  Then, yesterday, 7/30, I had my hip scoped.  Thankfully, there's only one more 30 in a month before I turn 31 (which gives me a little pause, because Dave is racing Muskoka that day-hopefully he'll turn this stretch around).  Anyways.  That surgery thing.  As I mentioned in my last post, I'd had all of the hip imaging done, and was waiting on one final step to try to figure out if my pain was intra-articular or...

A Healthy Active Lifestyle – The gift that just keeps giving

Saturday 01 Aug 2015 Jaimie Jacobs
:) Prevention Vs Cure – This is a term I often read! I imagine it being said with that tone that principals speak so well, in a lecture like tone. That is how I perceive it anyway! If only the powers to be could somehow enlist our mental fortitude to see all statements relating to the ‘Prevention is better than Cure” statement as less lecture like. Oh how I wish a wise soul within our thoughts could convert the ‘Prevention is better than Cure” statement to “A healthy active lifestyle rewards ‘your future you’ with freedom! If one could ideally read it as a ‘Get out of Jail’ card if you like where one isn’t imprisoned by limitations imposed by a disease! Or perceive it is a free pass to the Carnival of the Living! Where one can say ‘Yes’ to cycling with the grandchildren. ‘Yes’ to chasing after the furry family member on the beach. ‘Yes’ to simply walking faster across the road without fear of bones breaking due to the silent disease that now afflicts up to 200 million women world wide...

It’s Show Time!!

Friday 31 Jul 2015 Admin
:-) Just a quick update, I have settled in Penticton and it is the night before Day 1 of Ultra520k Canada. Am I nervous…..you bet! Am I excited…..absolutely! So many emotions all rolled into one but more importantly I can’t wait to get out there and experience the high’s and lows of what the next 3 days are going to offer. I am so lucky to have an amazing crew here in Canada with me: Ruth Chang – Personal Physio, GKEndurance coach but most importantly friend, who knows me so well. I have apologised already to her for what might happen over the next few days Marian Brennan  – More commonly known as Mazzy…..who has taken time out from her Holiday in Canada to come and chase me around over 3 days and 520km! At least she will get to see some great scenery along the way! I am trusting Ruth and Mazzy with all my nutritional and emotional needs! Jeff Shilt – Coach and Friend! I know how difficult I can be at times to deal with….unfortunately I can be very stubborn....

Buffalo Springs & Racine 70.3: Nuggets of Gold

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Admin
20150718_162851_resized The past two races were slow to get put into writing. Sometimes you have those events whereby while you’re proud of the effort, the result in your opinion is just ‘meh’. That is how I feel about both Buffalo Springs and Racine 70.3. That said, there was a similarity in both races which is something I am proud of and that is the attitude I managed to maintain throughout and how it helped get me to the finish line; in what I feel are less than stellar 3rd and 4th places, but in reality are nothing to hang my head about. Both events, I went in rested and with a strong desire and excitement to race. I’ve done them both a few times in the past, and each one brings back great memories from when I was still cutting my teeth at the 70.3 distance. I knew I would have to swim strong and back it with a solid bike to be able to use my run for a top slot. While neither race was too large (about 8 women in Lubbock and ~20 in Racine), they both had quality fields. So nothing would come easy; but...

2015 Ironman Canada

Wednesday 29 Jul 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
bike riding IMC This quote sums up my 2nd place debut Ironman Canada performance and why I am so happy with what happened but hungry, motivated and determined for more: “A win doesn't feel as good as a loss feels bad, and the good feeling doesn't last as long as the bad. Not even close.” – Andre Agassi Coming that close to winning my first Ironman was insane.  But losing the race that late in the race leaves me with the belief that I could maybe win an Ironman.  I don’t know that I truly thought I could win Sunday.  I don’t really feel “bad” about anything on Sunday because I truly gave my best on the day.  The fact I made some mistakes and didn’t win means there is still unfinished business and I am so glad.  It is what drives us. Danielle Mack executed a super strong race under terrible conditions to win her second Ironman.  Although I love a lot of the girls I race against- because they are amazing people I admire so much- having a former XTERRA age group World Champ...
