Terenzo @ Challenge Dubai

Terenzo @ Challenge Dubai

Sunday 01 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

What a day here at Challenge Dubai and to come away with the Victory at the first race of the triple crown series is an unbelievable satisfaction, especially considering where things were at with my body a few months ago. The wind picked up big time on race day blowing over 30km per hour on shore. This made for a rough swim and a tough second half of the bike, it also made the flat run a lot more challenging. more

Stryd Announces World’s First Wearable Power Meter for Runners

stryd_pilot Stryd Announces World’s First Wearable Power Meter for Runners, Launches Crowd Funding Campaign. Media Release Boulder, Colorado, March 3, 2015 – Starting today, runners and coaches can get their hands on Stryd, the first wearable device to measure running power, through a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter (stryd.com/kickstarter). Created by Princeton engineers and backed by some of the biggest names in endurance sports, Stryd gives runners a way to accurately measure run intensity across varied terrain using the sports watches and mobile devices they already use to train and, as a result, it unlock ways for runners to improve running efficiency. “The data runners use in training hasn’t changed much in 30 years. There has never been an accurate or easy way to show training intensity and efficiency, and athletes and coaches have repeatedly told us that holds them back.” said Robert Dick, Ph.D. and CEO of Stryd. “Our goal was to provide one number that can consistently...

Coach’s Note By Lance Watson: Ironman Swim Training In The Pool

Monday 02 Mar 2015 Triathlete.com
Photo: John David Becker For many athletes the swim portion of an Ironman is a significant challenge. Limited visibility, creatures lurking beneath you, people all around kicking and thrashing their arms, and the cold, choppy water are all different from the typical training environment in the pool. For some, simply swimming 2.4 miles in an Ironman is enough of a challenge! The reality is that preparing for open-water swimming, though challenging, can be fun. As you become more aware of your surroundings and develop your skills, you will approach open-water swimming with renewed confidence. For many athletes, training in open-water conditions regularly is not possible, but some of the same skills and techniques can be developed in the pool. Use these six techniques in the pool to prepare for your Ironman swim. 1. Find someone to get close to. The most nerve-wracking part about open-water swimming for many is the commotion created by hundreds of people swimming around you. To simulate...

Heart of an Awl, All of my Heart. 3rd Place IM CDA

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Ben Hoffman
Screen shot 2014-07-02 at 9.30.17 PM     Returning to defend an Ironman title is a rare and special experience. Winning one takes so much work, luck, and support, and returning in form to properly defend requires even more I find. Fortunately for me, I came prepared this year, having done the work I felt was necessary in training, diet, recovery, mental preparation, and creating a support network that was surely unrivaled in this northern Idaho town. Between my lovely girlfriend, parents, the Hutter family, Zoot Sports, local friends and fans, my coach, and my massage therapist, I had built a cocoon that put me in the proper place to emerge as a contender on race day. In addition, training partners, coaches, extended family, and all other sponsors played a critical role in my lead-up to race day, and I thank them for such dedicated support.   So I toed the line with a clear mind and no excuses, just a hunger for the elation that comes with an Ironman win. Admittedly, I was spoiled a bit, having won 3 of...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

2nd Place New Orleans 70.3

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
IMG_1257 I’m back from the bayou and have good news to report! After 3 trips to New Orleans to race the Ironman Oschner 70.3, I’ve finally landed a podium 2nd, just one minute out of first, and behind 70.3 World Champion, Andy Potts. I have been putting this race on the schedule nearly every year, making the trip down to see family friends, and to race alongside my dad, and it’s one of my favorites. The deep south of Louisiana is truly another universe, unlike anything else in the world. After the disappointment of Oceanside, I was hungry to get out and prove that my racing and fitness have gone up a level since last year. My approach this season has been to knock out some consistent racing early and get good points for Kona, culminating with my attempt at a title defense in Coeur d’Alene. So far, things are on target with only a couple races left, so hopefully I will have the entire back half of my season to train and prepare for Hawai’i. After spending a...

Oh, No!-ceanside

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
Not a lot to say on this “race,” as it lasted only about 1 hour before I suffered a puncture around mile 14 of the bike and did not finish. I had a very strong swim and came out right where I needed to be, but after trying to make a move with super cyclist Starky around mile 10, I came out of a sharp right turn in Camp Pendleton and heard the dreaded hiss for the second race in a row.  I felt good and was sitting around 9th/10th, but with a world class field like that one, it was essentially over when I flatted. To add insult to injury, I flatted again at mile 38 after continuing on with intent to finish.   Still a joy to return to the Southern California landscape, see good friends and connect with sponsors. I was able to salvage things a little by surfing with friends and having a great dinner with some of the Zoot crew. I will be back again to have a crack at the classic California race!
