Challenge Knoxville

Date: Sunday 17 May 2015 Add To Calendar
Location: Knoxville (United States)

Challenge Knoxville takes place in the site of the 1985 World’s Fair Park. There is plenty to do and see in Knoxville, Tennessee making it the perfect venue for the whole family. Knoxville is only a short drive from several metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, or Nashville and is also a short drive to the Great Smokey Mountains if you would like to extend your stay after your race. Triathletes will assemble at Volunteer Landing adjacent to Knoxville’s renowned Calhoun’s on the River. Each swim wave will enter the water via the deck at Calhoun’s Restaurant and tread water until the gun sounds. Triathletes will swim up river make the turn and swim back down river exiting at the UT Rowhouse across the street from Neyland Stadium. Join us on a bike ride which begins adjacent to Neyland Stadium. Athletes will make their way out of Knoxville as they journey out onto the rural country roads of Blount and Knox Counties. Enjoy challenging ascents, rapid descents and picturesque scenery before making your way back in to town. Athletes will exit the transition area heading out onto Neyland Drive passing the Stadium. The run course will weave its way through the Knoxville Greenway Trail System. Athletes will enjoy a challenging yet scenic course at Challenge Knoxville culminating with an energized finish at World’s Fair Park in downtown Knoxville.

Dear Coach: Pros Vs. Age Groupers

Friday 06 Mar 2015 Triathlete.com
Matt Reed at the 2014 TriRock Philadelphia Triathlon. Photo: Lee Diehr/Swim Bike Run PhotographyWhat are the biggest differences in how an age-grouper should train versus a pro? The biggest difference is that amateur athletes have more pieces to the puzzle. The stress on their systems comes not just from training but also from work and family commitments, so the training plan needs to account for this. Amateurs need to make sure to remove most junk miles from their training to have a positive impact on their lifestyle. I see too many athletes have triathlon and training take over their life for X number of months, then they can’t sustain the time commitment and fall out of the sport. I like to have my athletes have various time commitments to the sport. Fluctuating this allows the person to achieve his or her racing goals while maintaining their family and professional work lives. Amateur athletes need to work the same systems as professionals, just in a different balance. Getting the...

I’m A Triathlete: Sanjay Gupta

Friday 06 Mar 2015 Julia Polloreno
Photo: John David BeckerThrough his CNN Fit Nation Team, Dr. Gupta shares his passion for triathlon and guides others down a life-changing path. As CNN chief medical correspondent and practicing neurosurgeon, Dr. Sanjay Gupta is dispatched to far corners of the globe to provide a human face to some of the world’s biggest health crises, often as a result of a natural disaster. He reported from the front lines of 2010’s devastating earthquake in Haiti and flooding in Pakistan, the tsunami in Japan the following year, and, most recently, the Ebola outbreak in Africa. But despite a dizzying schedule of international travel and intense job demands, Gupta still manages to carve out time to exercise every day, resolute in the pursuit of his own fitness goals and undeterred in his mission to get others to embrace the multisport lifestyle. “Training is a little bit challenging because this job is very unpredictable,” explains Gupta, 45. “You have to be nimble and figure out how to get your...

Life Time Tri Series to eliminate pro prize purses

Friday 06 Mar 2015 Brad Culp
Earlier this week, organizers of the Life Time Fitness Triathlon Series sent an email to a number of professional athletes alerting them that there would no longer be any pro prize purses at their 12 events in 2015, with the exception of the New York City Triathlon, which will offer a purse this year. The following in an excerpt from that e-mail that was obtained by LAVA: “…with an eye toward furthering our commitment to provide even more events and experiences for age group athletes to engage in this healthy way of life sport, we have made the decision to discontinue offering a pro purse. Instead, we will invest in our existing and new triathlon events, along with our increased focus on growing the sport among new triathletes, and resurging lapsed athletes through initiatives like our Commit to Tri campaign and Women for Tri development.” This announcement comes just one month after the high-dollar Hy-Vee Triathlon in Des Moines announced that it would no longer hold a professional...

Life Time Cuts Pro Prize Purse

Photo: Nick MoralesThe decision continues the ongoing discussion of what role professional triathletes play in the sport and how much they should be paid for top performances. Life Time Tri, the leading race series for short course, non-drafting competition, revealed this week it would eliminate most of its professional prize purse in favor of focusing on the age-group experience. “We continue to see significant opportunities to introduce more men and women to engage in this healthy way of life sport, while enhancing the range of available tools and training programs they need to prepare and succeed,” Life Time Senior Vice President Kimo Seymour said in an email to Triathlete on Thursday, March 6. “With this in mind, and in order to concentrate our investments in this realm, we have made the decision to discontinue offering a pro purse (aside from the Panasonic New York City Triathlon).” Last year the pro series...

PEMF as Part of my Daily Body Maintenance Armory

Thursday 05 Mar 2015 Lesley
One of a number of crucial weapons in my ongoing daily “body maintenance” armory is pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy (PEMF). PEMF works by delivering a penetrating energy into the body in the form of pulsating magnetic frequencies which work with cellular metabolism to provide healing benefits. Some of the benefits I’ve personally noticed are that it speeds recovery from tough workouts, helps reduce the pain of sore muscles, strengthens the immune system, improves blood circulation, and expedites the removal of toxins and increased tissue oxygenation. I use the TruePulse A2000 PEMF system from Pulsed Harmonix. But with my insane schedule, I rarely find time to just sit down and use it on its own. So I have to get the benefits of PEMF while I’m doing other things as well. Two of my favorite places to use the TruePulse A2000 are while I’m driving in the car with me sitting on the attached mat which is plugged in to the cigarette lighter via the company’s special inverter...

Monitoring Recovery

Wednesday 04 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
 Steps to Recovery Your body will not be ready to do another workout if it hasn’t adequately recovered from the last one.  In between hard workouts, pro athletes will take some steps to facilitate recovery and complete active recovery workouts to make sure their body is loose and adequately rested to handle the stress of another hard session.  Training is a process of stringing together sessions that challenge the body.  In between the challenging sessions the athlete needs to do everything possible to get ready for another one.  Here are some common practices to improve the process of recovery. Post Session Recovery Recovering from workouts first involves basic steps immediately after the session: 1.   Replenish post workout with fluids and a small amount of protein.  I aim for 0.2g/kg of protein and 0.8 g/kg of carbohydrate within an hour of my workout. 2.     In the hours following your workout, make sure you replenish all the...

Taiwan 70.3

Tuesday 04 Nov 2014 Admin
Taiwan Photo Shoot 1 When Guy and I traveled to compete in Taiwan 70.3 last year for the first time we had such a great experience we said we would definitely be going back. No just the race itself, but the location at the Yoho resort, the organisation and the fun atmosphere. So it was always going to be on the schedule. When our season was thrown a curveball after IM Louisville with the cancellation of IM Lake Tahoe we took a bit of down time, although it felt like we have been resting for weeks anyway!! We focused on GKEndurance, in particular our athletes racing in Hawaii. On returning to Boise it was back into it…we had 3 weeks…including packing up our life from the last 6months and returning to Perth. It was going to be CRAZY! After 2 days of travel via Auckland we were back on the West Coast of Australia for 4 days then few the red eye Thursday night to Taiwan. We arrived Friday afternoon. Excited to be back! The lead up to the race including getting to hang out with the AWESOME crew from Ceepo! A...

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...
