2012 Year in Review

Thursday 10 Jan 2013 Admin
TO and Rinny With the racing season wrapped up and the holidays on the way I wanted to take the opportunity to sum up the year for all those who have supported and cheered me on. In a nutshell, 2012 has been fantastic! While the racing season was great and highlighted by some nice victories and strong performances, the real highlight of my year comes from my recent engagement to Rinny. After being together for several years, I finally stopped dragging my feet and popped the question. We are both very excited and with the wedding planned for next fall we will have to race well in 2013 to pay for it! My 2012 season was one of new approaches. While the prior year had been strong, my entry into Ironman racing left me reaching at the end of the season and questioning what I could do to improve. One source of questions was my diet, and the discovery of a gluten sensitivity led to drastically improved nutrition. I also changed my approach to training, being a little smarter in terms of when and how much...

No Easy Streets in Idaho

Wednesday 04 Jul 2012 Admin
TOB&W I just finished a two-week racing block in Idaho with Ironman 70.3 Boise and Ironman Coeur d’Alene (CdA), the great state of Idaho made sure to make it a challenge! While I don’t feel either race was my best showing I was still able to walk away from this block with two podiums, a 3rd in Boise and 2nd in CdA. Podiums are great but what I really took away from the Gem State was great lessons in toughness, both physical and mental. I came into the Boise 70.3 with great form. After some successful results early in the season I was able to get in a great Ironman training block before the 70.3 to prepare for CdA two weeks later. I arrived to a beautiful day in Boise, mid-70s and sunshine. While the swim water was cold (57 degrees) the rest of the course was beautiful with a challenging bike and festive run course located downtown. It seemed to have the making of the perfect race, that is before the not so perfect storm approached. Boise has the unique quality of a noon start time, but that...

Ironman 70.3 US Championships, Big Wins Hurt More!

Wednesday 04 Apr 2012 Admin
IM70.3WC What an unbelievable weekend in Galveston, TX at the Ironman 70.3 US Championships. After a 2nd and 3rd place finish the last two years in Texas I finally brought home the win and claimed the title of US Pro Champion! With the one of the strongest fields in 70.3 history, the presence of cycling legend Lance Armstrong and a nail biting late race battle for the win this is truly one of my most memorable moments in the sport. After spending two weeks in Tucson in between races I arrived in Galveston on Thursday feeling great and excited to race. A disappointing ride here last year left me 8 minutes behind Chris Lieto off the bike and unable to defend my title as US Champion. Memories of the race have lingered in my head over the year, leaving me hungry to come back and redeem myself in Galveston. I knew this was going to be an exciting race and a great challenge when I saw the caliber of the field. Two time Ironman 70.3 World Champion Michael Raelert, the only athlete to beat Michael in...

No Guts, No Glory (oh yah and No Gluten!)

Thursday 22 Mar 2012 Admin
TOIMSJ This weekend marked the start of my 2012 season and my first race as a gluten free athlete at the Ironman 70.3 San Juan. I am proud to report I successfully defended my title and brought home the win! After a roller coaster year in 2011 I was elated to get right back on track in San Juan. In early January I discovered that the health issues I experienced in 2011 (particularly in the 2nd half of the season) might have been related to a gluten sensitivity problem. I made the switch to gluten free and immediately began to feel “normal” again in everyday life, particularly in training. While it hasn’t been easy for a guy who absolutely loves treats, I was able to adopt the change successfully. After learning of the issue I headed out to Noosa, Australia to train for the winter. I was excited to find gluten free options EVERYWHERE! For the next two months I was able to train happy and healthy in Noosa and was ready to start racing. I headed out from Australia back to the States the Monday...

Sorry, no Mulligans in Kona!

Tuesday 08 Nov 2011 Admin
TO_Mulligan I wish Ironman racing was more like golf. If it were I would have definitely asked for a Mulligan at the Ironman World Championships last month in Kona! Regardless of how well you prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for the biggest race of the year you have to get to the start line healthy. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do that this year and my debut in Kona was a humbling experience from Queen K. Despite some set backs in early September including a case of “foot drop” prior to the Hy-Vee Triathlon, my preparation for Kona went really well. I logged the biggest training weeks of my career and highlighted the preparation with high watts on the bike and the fastest training runs I had ever seen in my (short) Ironman career. Everything leading into the race was focused on success on the island, locked on diet; great training and the BEST gear put me in position to compete with the world’s top triathletes. Rinny and I headed to Kona two weeks early to acclimatize and get...

Preparing for Kona: the calm before the storm

Tuesday 27 Sep 2011 Admin
I’ve finally made it to Kona! After a flurry of packing and trying to get in those last few key training sessions I hopped on a plane and headed to paradise on Friday. We arrived at the Mauna Lani Resort to a warm reception and an unbelievable bungalow. With two weeks until the race we wanted to avoid the hustle of staying in town and just focus on getting ready, the Mauna Lani was the perfect option. As I sit here in our peaceful surroundings, the stress of packing and travel done and the chaos of race week not quite here I have some time to reflect on all the preparations that have gotten me here. This week is truly the calm before the storm. When I decided to put my sites on the Ironman World Championships my entire year shifted focus to this one particular race. Every race, every training session had one purpose, getting me ready for Kona. While the entire year is set around the race the blinders really went on about eight weeks ago as the serious preparation began. After having a...

Ironman Debut in the Lone Star State: Part 1

Friday 27 May 2011 Admin
TO_Texas_PartI Wow. Why didn’t anyone tell me those last 6 miles hurt so much? I mean seriously, even Rinny didn’t mention it to me…maybe it is some kind of Ironman rookie hazing. Despite the unexpected pain at the end of my run I am very excited with my Ironman debut performance. With an 8:09:50 I finished 2nd this weekend at Ironman Texas and claimed the title of 2011 Ironman US Pro Champion. At the end of 2010 I made the decision to retire my Olympic aspirations and start chasing my dream to win in Kona. Many people close to me were surprised even shocked with this career shift. But my recent performances at ITU races like my podiums at US Pro Nationals showed me to be a legitimate contender for a spot on the US Olympic team. Still something inside me was saying it was time, time to put all my energy into one goal the Big Show in Kona. The Ironman World Championships is the pinnacle of our sport and demands the full attention of any athlete in order to succeed. I knew it was time to give it my...

Ironman Debut in the Lone Star State: Part 2

Friday 27 May 2011 Admin
TO_Texas_PartII My alarm was set for 4:30AM but I never heard the buzzer go off.  My excitement already had me up and ready to go.  I ventured over to the race start with Rinny and Cliff in the car and the Foo Fighters playing in my Yurbuds.  Having the support of Rinny and Cliff at the race was instrumental to my success, I can’t think of anyone else I would want in my corner!  My body felt good and my mind felt focused.  I entered the water ready to race. The gun went off and I immediately locked into race mode, all nerves left my head.  I was able to get good position and while super swimmer John Flanagan pulled away I lead the lead pack of 10.  I stayed in the front of the swim pack and exited the water in third.  The swim was the least of my worries for the day, with a slightly shorter swim than at ITU LC Worlds last year it was the only distance in the IM that I had actually raced! I started the bike and patience was the key word.  In 70.3s I always try to push the pace at the start of the ride...

Jump starting 2011 with a win at the Ironman 70.3 San Juan

Wednesday 23 Mar 2011 Admin
2011 started with a big bang this weekend as I won my first race of the season at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 San Juan! With an incredible men’s field including 2x Ironman World Champion Chris McCormack, 5x Ironman champion Luke Mckenzie and a slew of other champions I knew the season kick off was going to be a true challenge. I spent the last 8 weeks in Tucson preparing for 2011 in what turned out to be an unbelievable training block. With my debut Ironman race in Texas coming up the focus of my preseason was volume. I knew that the higher volume coming into San Juan would leave me strong but I was not sure if I had tuned my speed enough for a 70.3 win. With this in mind my coach Cliff and I decided on a race strategy to play to that strength, set a strong pace early and aim to be the last man standing! Race day conditions were fantastic and the 79 degree water called for no wetsuits. As the race began I was able to quickly get to the front of the swim and exited the water in the lead...

My New Toy

Friday 17 Apr 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
DSCN1932 In the off-season, every athlete adds tools to their arsenal trying to take their training to the next level. Yoga, Pilates, Insanity, P90X are just some examples of what I have tried in the past. This off-season, I took it to a whole new level – I installed an Endless Pool. I first got to experience an Endless Pool at the Philly Tri because there was no place to swim in the days leading into the event. I found the current to be very similar to open water swimming, more than the time I spent in a traditional pool. Now that I am in it full time, I have seamlessly taken my workouts from my book, For Swimmers 365 Main Sets, and made them even more effective adapting them in the Endless Pool. As a result, I’m getting workouts that are a lot more practical to how I race…not in a 25-yard, not in a 25-meter, not in a 50-meter pool, but in lakes, rivers, and oceans. I also need to train my body to hold a blistering pace for miles on end, not just 30 seconds and rest 5 seconds as I flip...

Home away from home (16.04.15)

Thursday 16 Apr 2015 Corinne
It's true, I've been living the ultimate professional athlete life and have pretty much avoided the rain all winter. It won't gain me any #Rule 9 badass points but it's been more due to circumstance than a desperate wish to stay away from the sleet and the slush.

Saturday 03 Jan 2015 Corinne
Plan for the year: Getting back on to the start line at Kona, and putting together a better race day performance than I did last year. It's not really any more complicated or sophisticated than that. But it's taken a whole page of blogging, so grab a cuppa!

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. I'm obviously a triathlete. Make of this what you will.

IM World Championships (22.10.14)

Friday 24 Oct 2014 Corinne
Some may say I could or should be happy with being 11th in the world and certainly I've come a long way in four years. However, there is no denying that it's what you do on the day that counts, that is the bottom line. Believe it or not, I'm already looking forward to racing in Kona again in 12 months!

Ninja, gremlins, donkeys & dolphins (22.09.14)

IM Lanzarote Race Report (21.05.14)

Wednesday 21 May 2014 Corinne
My performance on the weekend was a credit to the work of my coaches and the team around me to get me back on the start line and in decent race shape. I honestly cannot thank the team enough for the support that they bring to me as an athlete and combined with Rob's unwavering faith in me, I'm in a very good place.

Epic on tap! joBerg2c - 9 days - 900km on the MTB

Wednesday 15 Apr 2015 Jessi Stensland
Bye Bonfire Bittersweet goodbyes here in Costa Rica today.  It's been 6 months...I've learned a lot...and there'll be more on that later...but in the meantime... Hopping on a plane tomorrow, arriving South Africa on Saturday for a few adventures including a rad race!! Teaming up with Ico Schutte who is writing daily updates from the race for Do It Now Magazine, we'll be riding the Old Mutual joBerg2c MTB Stage Race from Johannesburg to Scottsburg over 9 days across four of South Africa's provinces. 900 kilometers is equivalent to about 550 miles.  Whoa!! The joBerg2c event website has this to say about this route that I'm pretty stoked about: "The Route is King – 99.5% off-road, Subaru track (actually, Jeep track but we cannot say Jeep), tons of single-track, rural secondary roads and very little district road… There’s only about 10km of tar along the entire 900km." The event's SOUL PURPOSE: "The Old Mutual joBerg2c is riding the off-roads less travelled and trails never travelled. It is racing,...

Race Recap: Las Catalinas Triathlon

Wednesday 15 Apr 2015 Jessi Stensland
11045325_836150786468070_8660503337038089633_o One of my favorite triathlons I've done hands down.  Small town vibe, amazing calm clear blue water for the swim, 99% of the bike and run was on singletrack and a finish on the main street of the town I've been calling home.  The ice cold mobile sponge baths on the run were icing on the cake!!  Won the ladies division...simply felt great and glad to be a part of the community.  Managed an "a cachete" (ah kah-cheh-teh) to my Costa Rican buddy Juan Carlos as we passed on the course who taught me the slang street phrase, meaning "con todo" or well stocked, but similar to saying “belly full.” As he explained it, all is good and we've got all we need, nothing more...just about right for that moment.  Hard work on the hills but so satisfying and fantastic. My favorite quote of the day came from Charles Brewer the founder of this new town of Las Catalinas, who also did the triathlon, winning his age group: "I think this is the greatest day in Las Catalinas history," he said as he glanced...

Potts, Piampiano On Top At 70.3 New Orleans

Sunday 19 Apr 2015 Liz Hichens
Americans Andy Potts and Sarah Piampiano battled it out in close races at today’s Ironman 70.3 New Orleans to earn the early-season victories. After a week of tough conditions that forced the race expo and check-in to be moved inside, all 70.3 miles of the race—which has a history of being turned into a duathlon due to the weather—were able to go on without issue. Despite the tough lead up and an unexplained delay of about 30 minutes, the action was able to kick off at just past 7:30 a.m. local time. Men’s Race Super swimmer Potts led the men out of the water in 18:35, with fellow Americans Eric Limkemann and Matt Chrabot coming into T1 just a few seconds later. Up-and-coming pro Drew Scott (USA) and 70.3 specialist Tim Reed (AUS) got out of the water and onto the bike about 40 seconds back of that lead pair. Chrabot and Potts were the pace makers up front on the 56-mile bike ride, turning in similar bike times to come into T2 within a few seconds of each other. They were...

2012 Year in Review

Thursday 10 Jan 2013 Admin
TO and Rinny With the racing season wrapped up and the holidays on the way I wanted to take the opportunity to sum up the year for all those who have supported and cheered me on. In a nutshell, 2012 has been fantastic! While the racing season was great and highlighted by some nice victories and strong performances, the real highlight of my year comes from my recent engagement to Rinny. After being together for several years, I finally stopped dragging my feet and popped the question. We are both very excited and with the wedding planned for next fall we will have to race well in 2013 to pay for it! My 2012 season was one of new approaches. While the prior year had been strong, my entry into Ironman racing left me reaching at the end of the season and questioning what I could do to improve. One source of questions was my diet, and the discovery of a gluten sensitivity led to drastically improved nutrition. I also changed my approach to training, being a little smarter in terms of when and how much...

No Easy Streets in Idaho

Wednesday 04 Jul 2012 Admin
TOB&W I just finished a two-week racing block in Idaho with Ironman 70.3 Boise and Ironman Coeur d’Alene (CdA), the great state of Idaho made sure to make it a challenge! While I don’t feel either race was my best showing I was still able to walk away from this block with two podiums, a 3rd in Boise and 2nd in CdA. Podiums are great but what I really took away from the Gem State was great lessons in toughness, both physical and mental. I came into the Boise 70.3 with great form. After some successful results early in the season I was able to get in a great Ironman training block before the 70.3 to prepare for CdA two weeks later. I arrived to a beautiful day in Boise, mid-70s and sunshine. While the swim water was cold (57 degrees) the rest of the course was beautiful with a challenging bike and festive run course located downtown. It seemed to have the making of the perfect race, that is before the not so perfect storm approached. Boise has the unique quality of a noon start time, but that...

Ironman 70.3 US Championships, Big Wins Hurt More!

Wednesday 04 Apr 2012 Admin
IM70.3WC What an unbelievable weekend in Galveston, TX at the Ironman 70.3 US Championships. After a 2nd and 3rd place finish the last two years in Texas I finally brought home the win and claimed the title of US Pro Champion! With the one of the strongest fields in 70.3 history, the presence of cycling legend Lance Armstrong and a nail biting late race battle for the win this is truly one of my most memorable moments in the sport. After spending two weeks in Tucson in between races I arrived in Galveston on Thursday feeling great and excited to race. A disappointing ride here last year left me 8 minutes behind Chris Lieto off the bike and unable to defend my title as US Champion. Memories of the race have lingered in my head over the year, leaving me hungry to come back and redeem myself in Galveston. I knew this was going to be an exciting race and a great challenge when I saw the caliber of the field. Two time Ironman 70.3 World Champion Michael Raelert, the only athlete to beat Michael in...

No Guts, No Glory (oh yah and No Gluten!)

Thursday 22 Mar 2012 Admin
TOIMSJ This weekend marked the start of my 2012 season and my first race as a gluten free athlete at the Ironman 70.3 San Juan. I am proud to report I successfully defended my title and brought home the win! After a roller coaster year in 2011 I was elated to get right back on track in San Juan. In early January I discovered that the health issues I experienced in 2011 (particularly in the 2nd half of the season) might have been related to a gluten sensitivity problem. I made the switch to gluten free and immediately began to feel “normal” again in everyday life, particularly in training. While it hasn’t been easy for a guy who absolutely loves treats, I was able to adopt the change successfully. After learning of the issue I headed out to Noosa, Australia to train for the winter. I was excited to find gluten free options EVERYWHERE! For the next two months I was able to train happy and healthy in Noosa and was ready to start racing. I headed out from Australia back to the States the Monday...

Sorry, no Mulligans in Kona!

Tuesday 08 Nov 2011 Admin
TO_Mulligan I wish Ironman racing was more like golf. If it were I would have definitely asked for a Mulligan at the Ironman World Championships last month in Kona! Regardless of how well you prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for the biggest race of the year you have to get to the start line healthy. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do that this year and my debut in Kona was a humbling experience from Queen K. Despite some set backs in early September including a case of “foot drop” prior to the Hy-Vee Triathlon, my preparation for Kona went really well. I logged the biggest training weeks of my career and highlighted the preparation with high watts on the bike and the fastest training runs I had ever seen in my (short) Ironman career. Everything leading into the race was focused on success on the island, locked on diet; great training and the BEST gear put me in position to compete with the world’s top triathletes. Rinny and I headed to Kona two weeks early to acclimatize and get...
