Ironman Frankfurt

Date: Sunday 03 July 2016 Add To Calendar
Location: Frankfurt (Germany)

The 3.8 kilometer (2.4 mile) swim at the Frankfurter Sparkasse Ironman European Championship is a two loop affair in the Langenaar Waldsee, a lake about 12 kilometers from the race centre in Frankfurt. The bike course is both fast, and technical. After riding out of T1 at Langener Waldsee, the athletes do about a 12km ride into Frankfurt where the start the rest of the course, which is made up of two loops. The run course in Frankfurt consists of three 14km laps. The course is made up of a series of out-and-back sections on either side of the River Main. The course looks like it should be fast -- it's very flat. It's tough to post a fast time here, though, because there are a number of turns -- both 180 degree turns at each of the four turnaround points, and the tricky roundabouts to negotiate over the bridge that the runners negotiate a couple of times each lap.

Nutrition On Long Bike Rides

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Triathlete.com
Q: With the warmer weather finally here, I’m taking my long rides outside. How should I be approaching my on-the-bike hydration? A: The first step is to assess your fluid needs. Test and know your sweat rate (the average is 24–32 ounces an hour, or at least one bottle per hour), then determine how much fluid you will need to carry for a race. Find out the specifics for your race; for example, sprint tris often do not supply fluid on the bike course, so you’ll need to carry your own. Olympic-distance races may have one, two (or no) bottle refill stations, so you’ll need to carry enough fluid to either complete your race, or make it between aid stations. Next, address your bike frame size and setup to determine how much fluid you can hold and where you can stash it. For example, my tri bike can only hold one bottle cage on my downtube; larger bikes can hold two. Aerobars allow for front-mount bottles you can reach and drink while staying in the aero position. Rear-mount...

How Can I Make My Transitions Faster?

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Paul Moore
Transition at Challenge Bahrain. Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images for Challenge Triathlon Transition at Challenge Bahrain. Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images for Challenge Triathlon Coach Kathleeen Johnson provides some basic tips for keeping your transition times to a minimum. Keep your transition area simple and clutter-free. Only set out the gear you need to use, and stash everything else back in your transition bag. You should easily be able to set everything up in an area the size of a hand towel. Organize your things in the order you will use them, with cycling gear in front of your running gear. Lay things out so it takes as few motions as possible to put them on. Place your helmet upside down with the back end facing away from you on the ground beside your bike or balanced on your handlebars. Have the straps open and tangle free. Open your sunglasses and put them inside your upturned helmet. Whether or not you do a flying mount, keep your cycling shoe straps open for quick entry, and...

The Road To The Woodlands. Redux.

Friday 29 Apr 2016 Noreply@blogger.com (rappstar)
it's by no means perfect, but it helps tell the story... I wrote a long post in 2015 about my preparation for IMTX. At the time, I think I was trying to reassure myself, since when I wrote it, I was at the beginning of what turned out to be a pretty bad downward spiral. I finished 9th (worst ever) at Wildflower. Then I DNF'ed IMTX about 40 miles into the bike. I struggled with insomnia,

Challenge Fuerteventura

Thursday 28 Apr 2016 Will
swim I’m really happy, and relieved to be sitting here in Fuerteventura on my post race ‘Over Drive’ training camp with a close 2nd place finish in Challenge Fuerteventura under my belt and as a result confidence back where it needs to be to be successful in this game.   It’s only 2nd place, I’ve had many of these before in 1/2 distance races and it becomes more and more apparent to me that the guy who wins these is half of the time the person who is willing to go to a different level of hurt to elk out that last 30 seconds. I don’t think that there was that much difference between myself and Andi Bocherer in the race so congrats to him for the win. This was a training race and a process goal for me heading into Ironman Brazil next month and I just didn’t quite have that smark and race fitness to jump the gap and take the win. I arrived the week before the race, it’s such an easy place to base yourself with a short flight with easy...

South Africa

Thursday 25 Feb 2016 Will
team photo Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well. At the moment I’m sitting in my apartment with my feet up in South Africa trying to ride out a bit of illness picked up somehow/somewhere. I’m not sure what it is with this place. I really love it, the weather is unbeatable, you have amazing food and wine, natural beauty, good friends. 24 Rand to the £ also helps but I do find it super hard here to put in the work. I’m off home next week back to my house in Leicestershire where I hope to get my consistency back that I had before I came out here with the Charnwood Riot. In general the winter has gone pretty much perfectly to plan, I’ve had a couple of great camps in Lanzarote at Sands Beach including our annual team camp. It was amazing to catch up with the gang again, and of course receive all the amazing new product from our top sponsors. Big thanks to the Wolfs for organising another great few years for the team, I’m excited to be part of it. At the end of...
