70.3 Texas preview

Friday 24 Apr 2015 [Triathlon News]

This early spring race is characterized by humid, windy conditions, though at this time of year, the scorching Texas heat is less of a factor. The surrounding area offers attractions for families, including the famous Moody Gardens with its pink, blue, and white glass pyramids housing a 10-story rainforest, and one of the world’s largest aquariums. If hot temperatures do make an appearance, the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark is a popular option. more

When the gun goes off for the start of the inaugural XTERRA Tahiti on April 25 – Ironman Hall of Famer and 6x IM World Champion, Mark Allen – will be the guy pulling the trigger. It won’t be Mark Allen’s first XTERRA experience, however, as he was a television host for the first XTERRA TV show in 1996 (seen above interviewing inaugural winner Jimmy Riccitello after the race). more

60 minute session: Swim breathing & pull work

Friday 24 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Every Friday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 minutes (or less!). This week’s swim workout comes from John Murray, a USAT Level II-certified coach and co-founder of Team Multisport Performance Institute (TeamMPI.com). This workout has a two-part focus: working on your breathing pattern and your distance per stroke. “Turning your head to breathe has the potential to make your legs sink and disrupt your rhythm,” Murray says. “For this workout, focus on keeping the head aligned with the spine for smooth and effortless breathing.” One-Hour Workout: Breathing Pattern and Pull Work For the breathing pattern swims, swim four lengths, switching breathing pattern from one breath every two strokes the first length, to one breath every three strokes, then to every four and finally every five. Focus on exhaling briskly underwater, keeping your arms moving continuously and keeping your head aligned with your spine. Let’s begin to count arm strokes with this workout....

Understanding your sports drinks

Friday 24 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Triathletes lose an average of one litre of fluid (sweat) per hour, and that litre of sweat typically contains 20 milligrams (mg) calcium, 50mg magnesium, 1,150mg sodium, 230mg potassium and 1,480mg chloride. This composition will vary from person to person, and sweat rates vary widely (from 0.5 litres per hour to more than 2.5 litres per hour), but this is an average starting point. Water is obviously an important ingredient in any sports drink. It will be listed first on any ready-to-drink sports drink ingredient list. Maintaining adequate fluid intake and balance is the most important nutritional intervention that will keep you moving forward swiftly and safely during the swim, bike and run. Dehydration not only hampers performance, but it also slows gastric emptying, further deteriorating performance. Sugar, in one form or another, should be the next ingredient. Carbohydrates fuel working muscles and the brain. Savvy triathletes know that consumption of rapidly absorbed forms of...

TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD – More than a pro triathlon team

Friday 24 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
The former Power Horse Triathlon Team has a new name: as TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD the triathlon team has joined the Laureus foundation, which supports disadvantaged children and teenagers with the help of the universal language of sports. “We are proud to be the first professional triathlon team to give our name to the Laureus Sport for Good foundation,” said eight-time Ironman champion and three-time European long distance running champion Timo Bracht on the team’s relaunch. “We’re a professional team, so of course our focus is on taking part in as many races as possible at a high level. But we are also intent on shouldering our social responsibilities. We want to support the Laureus Mission because we have years of experience in the field of sport and know what a positive effect it has on society.” “TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD’s approach could not have been possible without the support of our partners, so we would like to thank them again, this time...

How A U.S. Triathlon Coach Helped Caroline Rotich Win Boston

Thursday 23 Apr 2015 Triathlete.com
Ryan Bolton (right) has been coaching Kenyan Caroline Rotich (at center) and other international athletes through the Harambee Project since 2009. Photo: Ryan HeffernenWhen 30-year-old Caroline Rotich broke the tape at the 119th Boston Marathon on Monday in 2 hours, 24 minutes and 55 seconds, at least one person was not surprised—her coach Ryan Bolton. But what has come as a surprise in the running world is that Rotich has been coached by Bolton, a former Olympic triathlete and Ironman triathlon champion, for the past six years in Santa Fe, N.M. “I always expected her to win,” Bolton said Wednesday night, just two days after Rotich’s huge victory, the first big international win of her career. “She has developed so well over the past five years, showing clear signs of greatness.” And, on April 20, it all came together. Rotich not only earned $150,000 for her win; but, also, some much due recognition for her coach. It’s not rare for Kenyan athletes to train part of the year in the U.S.,...

Ironman Lake Tahoe “Race” Report.

Friday 27 Sep 2013 Admin

Ironman Canada, Back to Ironman Racing!

Thursday 26 Sep 2013 Admin
It’s been 3 years since I toed the line at a full ironman distance event, and can’t tell you how excited/nervous/scared I was to get through Ironman Canada this last weekend in Whistler B.C.. The last Ironman I did was Ironman Canada in 2010, so it seemed fitting to get the ball rolling where it [...]

Lake Stevens 70.3 5th place

Tuesday 23 Jul 2013 Admin
Lake Stevens 70.3 is as close to a hometown as it gets for me. 6 hours of driving and many Pacific Northwesterners towing the line and supporting each other all the way. The race venue takes over the small town of Lake Stevens which gives the race a small town feel and an “old school” [...]

Asterisk * A race report explanation

Thursday 13 Jun 2013 Admin
You may notice that I have not written race reports all that often or consistently. The reason for this is … I HATE excuses. Anything that happens on the race course is racing. It seems that many reports I read have excuses thrown in with, shoulda, coulda, woulda. I have been bad on race reports [...]
