3 Workouts (Plus Essential Gear) For Bike Commuters

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: iStock Fit in a workout (and up your happiness factor!) on your daily commute.  Bike commutes offer a host of benefits: physical fitness, reduced impact on the environment, primo parking, and (in some cases) cash bonuses from employee wellness programs. Plus, a recent study out of Clemson University reveals happiness may be linked to the mode of transportation utilized to get to and from work. Those who commuted by bike were significantly more cheerful than those who drove cars or rode public transportation. For triathletes, it’s a way to kill two birds with one stone—get to work and get a workout. Maximize your saddle time with these three workouts: Traveling Technique Use your short rides to and from work to focus on one element of cycling technique. Aim for a high cadence (90–100 RPM) and an even pedal stroke the entire way around, or work on your transitions from climbing in then out of the saddle. Stoplight Intervals After a 5–10-minute warm-up, insert short bursts of speed...

Jesse Thomas blog: I’m not an Ironman (and that’s okay)

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: Aaron HershWhen I tell people that I’m a professional triathlete, the first question I usually get is: “Have you done THE IRONMAN?” Most people mean one of two things—either “an” Ironman, or “the” Ironman, the one they see on NBC from Kona that’s kind of a big deal. Of course, my answer is no. As much as it may surprise my dozens of loyal readers, I haven’t done an Ironman. And while I’m a proud two-time finisher of the Kona Underpants Run, I’ve been unable to sell the rights to my hairy-chested tighty whities to NBC. And answering “no” always saddens me a bit. Not because I haven’t done an Ironman, but because something in the question, or the tone or the look I get when I respond “no,” makes me feel like I need to justify why I haven’t done an Ironman. I feel the need to give an explanation about being “new to the sport,” or “planning to do one next year,” or “but I still tri really hard I swear!” It’s like the many triathlons I’ve done, some over very hard courses at a fairly...

Boost your pain tolerance

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Paul Moore
Compared to the general populace, multisport buffs are as tough as they come. There’s even research to back up that contention. To gain an understanding of what accounts for that tenacity, a new study sought to examine the important link between pain and performance. Indeed, those who are able to push harder and longer are usually the ones who end up atop the podium on race day. Published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers had a group of cyclists perform sprint interval tests on bikes, giving them either 1.5 grams of acetaminophen (pain reliever, aka generic Tylenol) or a placebo prior to exercise. They then monitored their power output and heart rate during each sprint, finding that when they took acetaminophen, the participants had a significantly greater mean power output. This backed up related research that involved 13 trained male cyclists performing a 10-mile time trail after taking acetaminophen or a placebo. In similar findings, they discovered that the...

Why I Resigned from the Women For Tri Board

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Hillarybiscay
Over a week ago now, I made the disappointing decision to resign from the Women for Tri board. This was not a decision that I took lightly, as when I commit to something, I have every intention of following through. But in this instance, ultimately I had to make the call to cut my losses. Time is my most precious resource and I was willing to donate a significant amount of it to this project if it meant working on a project that would leave our sport better, particularly for the women in it. I love ironman. So much so that ironman completely changed the trajectory of my career, and in turn, my life. And I do not want to see everything that made me fall in love with this sport 14 years ago slowly fade away. As the only professional triathlete on the board and a coach of up-and-coming professional female triathletes, I felt a great responsibility to look out for this group. Unfortunately, I realized very quickly that my intentions would be much better served and time better spent...

Conrad Stoltz Caveman XTERRA New Zealand Rotorua hoka one one rapa nui, Specialized, suunto, clif bar, Caveman wins XTERRA New Zealand. I cant believe that after 22 years of pro racing this was only my 2nd race in NZ. Last time was ITU World Cup in Auckland in 1995 or 96. Draft legal road triathlon. After a rocky start to 2014 (2 punctures in 2 races, a biomechanical at XTERRA South Africa, a random injury, and some minor health issues- eye & skin cancer surgeries) its good to finally get the monkey off my back with a good win in Rotorua. What a phenomenal course and venue! Beautiful blue lake called “Blue lake” surrounded by green mountains covered with dense tree fern growth 20ft tall. I was out the swim in 5th or 6th, about 35” behind some Kiwi roadie, followed by Roger Serrano (ESP) and Ben Allen (Aus). After a fair bit of climbing Ben and I filed into Billy T neck in neck- some of the very best and unique single track I’ve ever ridden. Rain showers over the last few days added some extra fun and games and I couldnt wipe the smile off my face. This is the adventure and...

Stay Cool and Staying Aero

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Tim
RDodson__IronManMelb15_035 I’ll be talking more about the importance of aero and the things I try and do to ensure I have the edge over my opponents in the coming weeks. Being aerodynamically optimal needs to take into consideration your position and equipment, but also factors like comfort and hydration. Another one of these factors for racing is thermoregulation, something which was vitally important in my recent trip to Ironman Melbourne. Anyone that was at Ironman Melbourne can attest to the extremes in temperatures seen throughout the day. It was single digits when we started in Frankston, and low 30’s (approx 90f) when I crossed the finish line. It was ridiculously hot at some stages. One of the great things about my Scody Optimise AIR tri suit is that as much as it is aero, it is probably the most cooling suit I have ever worn. The sleeves provide added sun protection, and the fabric retains a very small amount of moisture to help cool me down. With this in mind, I do have some tips for everyone...
