Jessica Meyers, What a Difference a Week Makes!

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 [Triathlon News]

I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. more

Dispatch: Xie Xie, Challenge Taiwan

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Holly Bennett
Photo: David SunHolly Bennett shares her race report from the iron-distance Challenge Taiwan triathlon. I stood at the swim start at Flowing Lake in Taitung, Taiwan and only one thought filled my head: How lucky! I get to do this for the next 12 hours at least! Trust me, that’s the best way to start an iron-distance race–grateful, eager and not too serious. As you may know from this previous post, I chose to race Challenge Taiwan last-minute, relying on mental strength over physical preparation. I went into the race significantly undertrained, a great benefit of which was avoiding any opportunity for burnout. I had zero expectations aside from finishing, enjoying the experience and staying mentally tough and on track. And best of all, I wasn’t the least bit stressed or nervous. In fact, when I received an email from Linsey Corbin–always one of my greatest cheerleaders–a few days before the race asking how I was feeling, I responded, “I’ve barely even thought about the actual race!” I...

Brant Garvey: rookie of the year

Brant Garvey: rookie of the year - Triathlon & Multisport magazine Brant Garvey, a celebrated wheelchair athlete, hadn’t ridden a bike before 2013 and had hardly run more than a few steps without falling. But on the strength of a new carbon fibre leg, and newfound ambition, he powered first through an ITU triathlon before finishing an ironman.

Upper Body Strength Training For Run Form

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Jeremey DuVall, M.S., CPT
Avoid neglecting your upper body for better form and improved posture when running. Photo: ShutterstockA bulky upper body haunts the dreams of runners nearly as much as a forced mid-race porta-potty stop. Extra weight up top brings visions of slower race times and reduced flexibility, which leads to runners neglecting their upper body in the weight room. Not only does this neglect a major component of running form, but it also sets runners up for injuries down the road. Believe it or not, the upper body plays a huge role in endurance performance. The arms are responsible for maintaining a rhythmic motion in tune with the lower body. The shoulders should be properly positioned and flexible enough to allow the diaphragm to expand unimpeded and provide proper airflow. Most importantly, the torso must have a stable foundation to prevent excess rotation during the running motion. While running looks like a simple forward and backward motion, it’s actually a complex motion that involves both...

Slots for 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Tjnick
2015-IMWC-703.png Earlier this month IRONMAN announced that it had chosen Zell am See-Kaprun, Austria to host the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship triathlon. The championship race is scheduled for August 30, 2015 and marks the first time that the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will be held in Europe. In a recent interview with Triathlete Magazine, Andrew Messick stated: "We're going to rebalance all the slots--that's the first thing. Starting with the 2015 qualifying cycle, which starts in April 2014, virtually all North American races will have fewer slots and all European races will have more slots. We're very much anticipating--and engineering in the process--that there will be more qualifying opportunities in Europe for the 2015 world championships than there were in 2014. I would expect--and this is broadly speaking--if it's going to be a 2,500-athlete race, we'll have 1,000 North Americans, 1,000 Europeans, and 500 from Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific.

7 Steps To An Injury-Free Season

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Jené Shaw
Photo: Dan Holz / TandemstockFollow these techniques to build a rock-solid foundation. Want to avoid injury this year? We do, too. So we enlisted the help of Kyle Herrig, a USAT-certified coach, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and owner of Triplex Training in Tempe, Ariz., to give us tips that would keep us training healthy. 1. Do a functional strength-training program in and out of season. “Runners and triathletes seem to think that with all the swim/bike/run work that they’re putting in that they are getting stronger every day,” Herrig says. “But while running is good for building strength, our body just goes through a limited range of motion—there is not a real deep knee bend or a lot of hip flexion involved. It’s important for our bodies to move through greater ranges of motion not only to maintain flexibility, but to continue to fire and recruit more muscle fibers.” RELATED: Injury Prevention Advice For Triathletes 2.

New Orleans 70.3 Race Recap – 2014

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Haley
redbullrelay2 Why race a half Ironman exactly two weeks after an Ironman? 1. I’m always up for a little experimentation: 2. In small doses, I really like the city of New Orleans: Pretty sure this was a parade of auditors and giant puppets on Canal Street. 3. I was the defending champ! I should post this picture weekly just to make myself smile!!! I knew racing New Orleans was risky this year, but it was a risk I was more than happy to take. I had fully convinced myself Ironman Los Cabos was just a big training day and my legs were more than ready to tear through the Crescent City. For the first hour and a half of the race, I was RIGHT! The swim and first 20 miles of the bike were a BLAST. First out of the South Shore Harbor Marina! Woo hoo! I was riding up the front with Anna Cleaver and LOVING it. I felt like I was really racing and it was awesome. Shortly after the 20 mile mark Anna took the lead. And that’s when it happened: BIKE MELTDOWNNNNNNN!!!!   I’m no stranger to...

Eyes Forward, Mind Clear

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Admin
I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a point whereby we need to step away and get back to the basics; doing our best, at the moment, on the day; ultimately striving simply for happiness and self-fulfillment over ‘more’. Comparison is the thief of Joy. When I heard this, I was comparing myself to my own past standards; points in my career whereby I’ve been at my best, having achieved small feats I’d never thought possible. So here I sit, having been through a few hurdles the past year that have proven both physically and mentally...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

"Back on the horse"

Due to the incident during Ironman Western Australia late last year during the bike portion where an altercation with a media motorbike resulted in knee surgery early in the year. It is now nice to be bouncing back all be it later in the Australian summer than hoped, (missing Ironman Melbourne - home event) and gearing up for Ironman Australia in Port Macquarie.Although the preparation has not been 100% due to rehab, I can say that I have been able to do as much training as possible that my body would allow me. That means I am heading into Ironman Australia (as defending champion) in the best position I can be under the circumstances, or cards dealt.I am very much looking forward to getting back on the start line, feeling those nerves pre race and just "letting go" once the gun goes off.We train to race and race because we love it.BestLuke :)

Oceanside to Galveston...What a Difference a Week Makes!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. I got off the bike twice to fix it, the wheel would spin no problem, only to get back on and hear that dreaded sound of carbon rubbing (and you know exactly that cringe worthy sound). But beyond that, I was completely flat for the race. The swim was off, the bike my legs just felt like bricks, and the first loop of the run I was clipping off a great pace, but once the gravity of how far I was behind I just shut it down. My mind got the best of me, I felt sorry for myself, my ego was bruised...it definitely was not my finest nor proudest moment. photo courtesy slowtwitch.com Coach Kevin and I...

Swim Clinics and a Race with No Finish Line – Where I’m Headed Next!

Tuesday 22 Apr 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-04-21 at 5.37.22 PM I was SO freaking INSPIRED by the Boston Marathon yesterday! From Meb’s big win, Shalane’s gutsy race from the front, Rita Jeptoo’s incredible 2:18 (!!!), Team Hoyt’s last Boston, and my own Dynamo coach, teammates’, and friends’ AMAZING performances, there were lots of happy moments yesterday that made me so proud to call myself an endurance sports athlete!

Ironman Puerto Rico 70.3… Outside the race!

Pork right off the hog! Outside the Race: 1st I have to say a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful host Isis Casalduc-2002 Miss Puerto Rico and Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2002. With her as our guide, we had the opportunity to visit parts of the island we normally would have never ventured out to see. Below is a list of must do’s once you visit the island of Puerto Rico!   Pork right off the Hog: Restaurant:  Angelito’s Place On day 2 Isis took us to one of her favorite local delicacies.  This place was amazing! The hog is prepared by roasting over an open fire and then the butcher with a machete cut off chunks of pork that was weighed and served fresh! Amanda actually was allowed to handle the machete!!! This is a must visit as this was one of the best meals we had during our stay!!!!   Pork right off the hog!

Our first guests for Tri4theAlps arrive on 1 June so I really want to be in good shape for when they do! So building the base is all about consistent sessions, slowly and steadily increasing the duration and getting the job done. I've been working predominately on aerobic conditioning with some strength work thrown in too and I'm starting to feel ok. I've been concentrating on good form and technique too. The stunning views around Morzine have been making the hard breathing and sore muscles all that bit easier to handle. Another blessing that has inspired me to get out and about has been rejoining the GIANT family. A beautiful new Giant Propel and Giant Lust mean I can choose between road cycling and trail riding. I'm new to mountain bike riding and I am absolutely loving it so far. Riding the river trails have become my 'easy' rides and force me to get out of my comfort...

Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Docamandastevens
*pre ride Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico What a FUN Adventure this was! I was lucky enough to be joined in Puerto Rico by husband-extraordinaire, Randy, and a wonderful host, Isis. We were both spoiled by all things Puerto Rican…good food (restaurants and home-cooked by Isis!), beaches, rainforests, and a spectacular race-course. The minute I stepped on the island, I fell in love! While we were waiting for Randy’s flight to arrive, Isis took me to check out the race-course. Although, we kept getting caught in torrential downpours and came back to the car soaking wet several times…with each part of the course, I couldn’t help but think, ‘This is going to be FUN!” The days between 70.3 Brasilia and San Juan, were spent trying to get recovered and also doing a few workouts to keep the body awake and ready to fire on all cylinders come race day. Unfortunately, I picked up a stomach bug in Brazil, and for most of the days between races, I was trying to just keep food in. As Sunday drew near, I had to press...

2nd Place New Orleans 70.3

IMG_1257 I’m back from the bayou and have good news to report! After 3 trips to New Orleans to race the Ironman Oschner 70.3, I’ve finally landed a podium 2nd, just one minute out of first, and behind 70.3 World Champion, Andy Potts.

The deep south of Louisiana is truly another universe, unlike anything else in the world. After the disappointment of Oceanside, I was hungry to get out and prove that my racing and fitness have gone up a level since last year. My approach this season has been to knock out some consistent racing early and get good points for Kona, culminating with my attempt at a title defense in Coeur d’Alene. So far, things are on target with only a couple races left, so hopefully I will have the entire back half of my season to train and prepare for Hawai’i. After spending a...

Dispatch: Xie Xie, Challenge Taiwan

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Holly Bennett
Photo: David SunHolly Bennett shares her race report from the iron-distance Challenge Taiwan triathlon. I stood at the swim start at Flowing Lake in Taitung, Taiwan and only one thought filled my head: How lucky! I get to do this for the next 12 hours at least! Trust me, that’s the best way to start an iron-distance race–grateful, eager and not too serious. As you may know from this previous post, I chose to race Challenge Taiwan last-minute, relying on mental strength over physical preparation. I went into the race significantly undertrained, a great benefit of which was avoiding any opportunity for burnout. I had zero expectations aside from finishing, enjoying the experience and staying mentally tough and on track. And best of all, I wasn’t the least bit stressed or nervous. In fact, when I received an email from Linsey Corbin–always one of my greatest cheerleaders–a few days before the race asking how I was feeling, I responded, “I’ve barely even thought about the actual race!” I...

New Orleans 70.3 Race Recap – 2014

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Haley
redbullrelay2 Why race a half Ironman exactly two weeks after an Ironman? 1. I’m always up for a little experimentation: 2. In small doses, I really like the city of New Orleans: Pretty sure this was a parade of auditors and giant puppets on Canal Street. 3. I was the defending champ! I should post this picture weekly just to make myself smile!!! I knew racing New Orleans was risky this year, but it was a risk I was more than happy to take. I had fully convinced myself Ironman Los Cabos was just a big training day and my legs were more than ready to tear through the Crescent City. For the first hour and a half of the race, I was RIGHT! The swim and first 20 miles of the bike were a BLAST. First out of the South Shore Harbor Marina! Woo hoo! I was riding up the front with Anna Cleaver and LOVING it. I felt like I was really racing and it was awesome. Shortly after the 20 mile mark Anna took the lead. And that’s when it happened: BIKE MELTDOWNNNNNNN!!!!   I’m no stranger to...

Eyes Forward, Mind Clear

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Admin
I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a point whereby we need to step away and get back to the basics; doing our best, at the moment, on the day; ultimately striving simply for happiness and self-fulfillment over ‘more’. Comparison is the thief of Joy. When I heard this, I was comparing myself to my own past standards; points in my career whereby I’ve been at my best, having achieved small feats I’d never thought possible. So here I sit, having been through a few hurdles the past year that have proven both physically and mentally...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

"Back on the horse"

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Due to the incident during Ironman Western Australia late last year during the bike portion where an altercation with a media motorbike resulted in knee surgery early in the year. It is now nice to be bouncing back all be it later in the Australian summer than hoped, (missing Ironman Melbourne - home event) and gearing up for Ironman Australia in Port Macquarie.Although the preparation has not been 100% due to rehab, I can say that I have been able to do as much training as possible that my body would allow me. That means I am heading into Ironman Australia (as defending champion) in the best position I can be under the circumstances, or cards dealt.I am very much looking forward to getting back on the start line, feeling those nerves pre race and just "letting go" once the gun goes off.We train to race and race because we love it.BestLuke :)

Oceanside to Galveston...What a Difference a Week Makes!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. I got off the bike twice to fix it, the wheel would spin no problem, only to get back on and hear that dreaded sound of carbon rubbing (and you know exactly that cringe worthy sound). But beyond that, I was completely flat for the race. The swim was off, the bike my legs just felt like bricks, and the first loop of the run I was clipping off a great pace, but once the gravity of how far I was behind I just shut it down. My mind got the best of me, I felt sorry for myself, my ego was bruised...it definitely was not my finest nor proudest moment. photo courtesy slowtwitch.com Coach Kevin and I...
