Pro Diary – Kelly Williamson via IM Texas

Friday 29 May 2015 Admin
Words: Kelly Williamson : @khwilliamson 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...

Op Ed – Two years, four years or a lifetime ban?

Thursday 28 May 2015 Brad Culp
Words: Brad Culp @bbculp | Pics Getty Images Making the punishment fit the crime A few weeks ago I was watching a New York Yankees game and the broadcasters couldn’t stop talking about how muscular Alex Rodriguez looked. They applauded him for staying in such great shape without steroids (making the assumption that he is no longer using PEDs after being suspended for all of last season). And they also noted that it goes to show just what a great athlete Rodriguez is—with or without medical enhancement. A few minutes later, Rodriguez hit a towering homerun to left field. It was his first since returning from the longest suspension in baseball history. As Rodriguez rounded the bases I couldn’t help but think that his prolonged use of anabolic steroids and testosterone had something to do with his ability to still hit massive homeruns at 39 years old. The 105 kg Rodriguez of today looks nothing like 18-year old who made his Major League debut in 1994. Even so, I couldn’t reconcile the...

Six Steps To A Better Streamline

Pros Seek Points At Ironman Latin American Championship In Brazil

Thursday 28 May 2015 Bethany Mavis
American Tim O'Donnell will look to get an automatic entry to Kona. Photo: Wagner AraujoA deep pro field will be racing in South America at the Ironman Latin American Championship Brazil this weekend in an attempt to earn valuable KPR points toward the Ironman World Championship and, for the winners, an automatic start in Kona. The race, in Florianópolis on the island of Santa Catarina, also offers a $150,000 professional prize purse that pays 10 deep. Designating the race as a championship has allowed it to draw a much stronger professional field than in recent years; however, scheduling the race just two weeks after Ironman Texas, another regional championship, likely kept the field from being as stacked as it could have been. Last year’s winner and runner-up, Igor Amorelli and Santiago Ascenco Alves, both from Brazil, have the advantage of racing in front of their home crowd and on a familiar course. However, they’ll face tough competition to remain on the podium this year. American...

tougher times

Thursday 28 May 2015
Picture I suffered quite badly with stomach issues after the race in Fuerteventura (and sore legs but I blame Corinne for that), I presumed that it was just because of the hard hot race and the nutrition I had used but the problem didn't clear up and it got worse over the following week. I had planned France 70.3 and desperately wanted to race but by Wednesday I had to spend the whole day I bed and wasn't able to move with what was apparently a stomach infection. I tried to do some light training but it was hopeless as I was unable to even run easy for 10 minutes without being completely out of breath and dripping with sweat! I decided to stay in bed and rest with the hope that I could start the race. Deep down I knew I shouldn't have started but it's hard not to when you are there and desperately wanting to race. We drove to the race start and hid the car keys as I planned to do 30-40k of the bike and then spin back for the car. I felt shocking in the swim but actually swam ok so decided to...

challenge fuerteventura

Thursday 28 May 2015
Picture Challenge Fuerteventrua at Playitas Resort was the season starter again for me this year. It's a very tough course and always attracts a top class tough field so it's the perfect opportunity to kick off the season with a true test to see where you are. I was lucky enough to be able to train at Playitas before the race and it was a real luxury not to have to travel at all to race. This year the female field was stacked as usual with many current and former World and European champions on the start list. I felt a bit out of place at the press conference amongst the big guns but I was a real honour to be there beside them. My aim for the race was to go hard and to try to hit the podium which I knew wouldn't be easy.  Usually the male and female pros start together which is a very unfair start to the race (especially for weaker swimmers ) so at the race briefing I asked for a separate start and the organisers agreed instantly which was really great to see. They gave us a 2...

"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

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...
