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.

Ben Hoffman, Don’t Mess with Texas

Friday 22 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

It’s not often, especially in recent times, that I sit down to compose an Ironman race recap where I have been completely humbled and disappointed. There were some pretty poor races in Kona earlier in my career, but I’ve been very consistent in my ability to prepare properly and execute well over the past few years of racing. more

The race is known for its Kona likeness: heat, strong winds, and climbing. It seems to be Hawaii’s little sister of Europe. more

How To Fix, Treat And Prevent Runner’s Knee

Wednesday 27 May 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: iStock Building up your quads makes your knees more stable and less susceptible to injury. Patellofemoral knee pain (aka “runner’s knee,” thanks to how prevalent it is among runners) is characterized by pain beneath the kneecap that’s worst after you finish an activity. It’s especially sore going up or down stairs, tends not to swell, and typically becomes most aggravated after about an hour of running, when your quads start to tire. The patella (kneecap) has to withstand tremendous amounts of force, and the direction in which the patella moves is directly related to the forces that come from the quads. Pain can come from several causes. One is an injury to the cartilage under the patella. Poor running or biking mechanics resulting from weak or tight muscles can contribute. Poorly conditioned glutes, core muscles, hips and quads can lead to pelvic instability, which can affect the knees. I see this condition in more women than men because of what is called the Q angle or the...

How to warm up for a Long Course triathlon

Wednesday 27 May 2015 Paul Moore
Photos: Rocky Arroyo/EndurapixIf you ask many athletes and coaches what a good warm-up is the answers will likely vary for each person you ask. Some might say no warm-up is necessary for a longer event like Ironman, while others might want a very large and highly detailed warm-up. So what is the perfect warm-up for you and your race? The answer largely depends on three key variables. 1. Goals for the Event If you are trying to get a Kona or 70.3 Worlds’ slot then you must be ready to race hard from the beginning, and that really can’t happen without a great warm-up. The higher the goals you have, and the higher the intensity of the race, the more important the little things like warm-up matter. This article first appeared on the TrainingPeaks website. For more click here. If you are just trying to finish an Ironman, then chances are the intensity you are racing at is not something which really requires a significant warm-up for high performance. You just need to be prepared for the...

Run workout: The 30-20-10 session

Wednesday 27 May 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockWhen it comes to improving running fitness, every workout has its place in a training plan. Three miles of easy running does not elicit the same fitness gains as three miles of tempo or interval-paced running. One is not more important than the other, and all are necessary to elicit fitness gains. Even so, many runners still find themselves getting stuck in a rut of logging too much easy mileage, neglecting the more high–intensity efforts. If this sounds familiar, consider the results of a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology that demonstrate the advantages of including harder workouts in your training regimen. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark monitored two groups of runners over a seven-week period. One group continued their normal running, and the other subscribed to a regular fartlek-style workout. After a short warm-up, this workout involved 30 seconds of jogging, 20 seconds of running at a regular training pace, and 10...

World’s best ready to race at ITU London

Wednesday 27 May 2015 Paul Moore
When she's in this kind of form nobody can stop Gwen Jorgensen. Photo: Janos M. SchmidtLondon this weekend marks the sixth race and start to the European leg in the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Series. Serving as the host city for the second sprint-distance race of the season for the elites, the Great Britain capital will also see the likes of Paratriathlon across multiple sport classes. While Gwen Jorgensen (USA) tops the start list in the hopes of continuing on in her nine-time undefeated winning streak, London may bring her toughest competition yet. A star-studded women’s race will also feature compatriot Katie Zaferes, Great Britain’s own Non Stanford and Vicky Holland and New Zealand’s Andrea Hewitt. In the men’s race, brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee (GBR) will face off head-to-head for the first time this season and with Javier Gomez (ESP) taking a break from the WTS, fellow Spaniard Mario Mola will be sporting the No. 1 in an attempt to claim another London gold as he...

"Head full of doubt, road full of promise"

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Jennie Hansen)
  Here's the thing about comebacks, if that's what we want to call them.  They're not the nice, clean, linear journey back up to glory that we think they should be.  You get knocked down, you think that you've paid your dues to karma, the universe, whatever it is, and that it's going to be a steady trip up back above where you've started as long as you put in your time, and do your work.  But that's not true.  One bad thing happening doesn't automatically build up immunities to other setbacks.  It's like a long climb on a ride, when you're not sure where the top is, and you're not quite sure if you're ever even going to make it there.  Sometimes, the road dips back down again, and while it's a momentary relief, deep down you're cursing it, because it's just taking you further away from where you want to be.  But, the steepest, hardest, most challenging portions are the ones that pack the most punch in getting you there.   Anyways, this...

Ironman Texas: It’s the Size of Fight in the Dog

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Admin
FullSizeRender1_resized I’ve never quite understood it when people say they are “going to defend their title” upon returning to a race as the previous year’s winner. It seems more appropriate “I’m going with the goal of defending my title.” So when many asked me if I was ‘going to Ironman Texas to defend’, I guess I just saw it differently. The goal was, as with any race, go out and execute the absolute best of my ability; if that landed me on top, all the better. But I’ve often found it dangerous to become too focused on the top step of a podium, especially in an event such as Ironman, with so many variables that come into play. Becoming too fixated on a ‘title defense’ to me just seems misguided. While I found it a huge honor to return to The Woodlands after last year’s race, I knew that wouldn’t make the task of a similar performance any easier. I’ve often said, resumes don’t matter when we toe the start line; it’s about focus, preparation, execution, and how much fight we’re willing to bring to the...

Debut Ironman Experience – Lanzarote

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Will
sands beach crew Well, I can officially call myself an Ironman I guess, what a huge day trip that was in Lanzarote. I felt like preparation went ok for my debut Ironman. I can’t say I was in top shape at all, just didn’t have the time to get that, lets say I was inconsistently good!  I personally thought it was enough to get a good result here but not this time. The swim was fine, I didn’t know what to expect from a 3.8k swim, I thought it’d probably bore the hell out of me but actually it went very quickly and wasn’t too bad! It was almost backstoke-able at times so really it was more of a warm up for what was to come. Pointer to all the athletes who raced! Did you see that GIANT Manta Ray that swam under us? T1 went smoothly and we spit the pack into 2 groups. I was with some strong guys and to be honest they were riding a bit too hard for my liking. I had the aim of finishing the bike with 285w best case scenario. 280w maybe more realistic. That meant probably being on...

Barcelona and onwards.

Wednesday 11 Jun 2014 Will
Before ride Hello everybody, thanks for tapping in. Things are going well for me as we hit half way through the season. I’m just getting stuck into a meaty taper for UK 70.3 down in Wimbleball and I think I’m probably coming into some of my best shape of the season so far. It’s all very nice when you’re resting up knowing that you have good legs. Not a bad gig sitting on the sofa super-compensating, getting fitter as you chug through your cup of tea! I’m pretty happy with the season so far. I’ve managed to bag three 2nd places in 70.3 events. Most recently from the Barcelona 70.3 which was a fantastic race! Probably about time I turn it around and get a win, but already this season is better then last year. It’s a brilliant race down in Barcelona, nice point to point sea swim, very very solid hilly bike course and flat run along the Med. We had another quality field of athletes with Victor Del Corral, Terenzo Bozzone, Jan Van Berkel, Bruno Pais, Sylvain...
