Ironman European Championship

Date: Sunday 06 July 2014 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.

Corinne Abraham, IM Frankfurt/Euro Champs race report

Corinne Abraham, IM Frankfurt/Euro Champs race report

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

Geepers Creepers. I think that it is fair to say that I did not enter the race thinking that I would end the day on the top step of the podium. In the week before the race we saw both Raffa and Murray exit from Wimbledon, not that I am comparing myself to Raffa and Murray, but at the time it reminded me that there are no guarantees or certainties in sport and I shouldn't be writing myself in or out of the race beforehand. more

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

While the men’s races have historically been a three-man show with Javier Gomez Noya (ESP and the Brownlee brothers consistently dominating the podium, that story hasn’t played out to expectation so far this year. But all of the big players will meet in Hamburg for a mighty quick splash and dash sprint race that promises to be a nail-biter. more

Andy Raelert, Not a perfect day in Frankfurt

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

Andreas Raelert has experienced a moment of disappointment at the Ironman European Championship in Frankfurt. The Rostockian had to quit the race during the run. "I am very disappointed that it did not work for me," said the European champion of 2010. He had decided to take part in this high-class race a few days out of the competition in Frankfurt. "I felt ready for this race," said Andreas Raelert, "but unfortunately I could not reach what I personally had hoped for." After 25 kilometers of th more

Two Ironman races, A difficult day for Raphael, whereas Potrebitsch impresses in Norway

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

For years now, Jan Raphael is among the most constant athletes at Ironman Germany in Frankfurt. After winning twice the silver medal at the Ironman European Championship in 2011 and 2013, he was unable to repeat even a normal performance this year. Georg Potrebitsch, on the contrary, impressed especially with a strong run at Ironman 70.3 Haugesund, finishing his race in fifth place. more

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

I didn’t finish with a time under 8 hours (8:00:25) and I didn’t win (2nd place), but still I am extremely satisfied about my race - largely completed solo in 30 °C heat, in and around Frankfurt. In the world of sport you sometimes just have to bow down to someone else’s superiority; and today Sebastian Kienle simply was the best. more

Training Tip: Stop Overstriding

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Jené Shaw
There may not be a universal “perfect form,” but one thing’s for sure: you should stop overstriding. Foot strike is dominating the discussion about running form. Some researchers say that if we run as our ancestors did (barefoot or close to it), it would be impossible to land on the heel, therefore heel striking—and the cushioned shoes that encourage it—is the reason so many runners get injured. Dr. Peter Larson, an associate professor of biology at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, doesn’t see foot strike as the main issue. After plowing through hundreds of years of research for his upcoming book Tread Lightly, Larson, who’s also behind the innovative running site Runblogger.com, discovered that there’s not one perfect shoe for everyone (some people need more support) nor are there form rules that everyone should follow. “We all have different backgrounds, different bodies, different fitness levels and different histories of shoe use that will have some impact on what we do when...

Life Time Tri Minneapolis Set For Saturday

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Bethany Mavis
Photo: Nick MoralesA strong field of non-drafting short-course specialists is expected for Saturday’s 12th annual Life Time Tri Minneapolis. The Course: More than 2,000 pro and amateur athletes will take on the Olympic- and sprint-distance courses at the 12th annual Life Time Tri Minneapolis, to be held at Lake Nokomis, Minn., on Saturday, July 12. The race is the third stop in the six-race pro series (other LTF races are South Beach, held in Miami; New York City; Chicago; CapTex in Austin, Texas; and Oceanside near San Diego, Calif.). Pros will be racing on the Olympic-distance course, which features a 1500-meter swim in Lake Nokomis starting form the northwest side of the lake, a 40K bike that navigates along the Mississippi River and “City of Lakes,” and ends with a 10K run around the shore of Lake Nokomis to the cheers of thousands of spectators. The Pro Race: Professional triathletes will be competing in Minneapolis for a $30,000 prize purse (which pays five deep with $7,000 each...

Race Radar: California’s Donner Lake Triathlon

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Bethany Mavis
Photo: www.LEFRAKPHOTOGRAPHY.COMThe beautiful Donner Lake Triathlon, now in its 33rd year, should be on your bucket list. This year, the beautiful Donner Lake Triathlon will be running for the 33rd year in Truckee, Calif., just north of Lake Tahoe in the midst of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The epic location, which features stunning scenery, makes it a bucket-list triathlon for many triathletes. Featuring a sprint, Olympic and half all in one July weekend, the Donner Lake Tri expects 1,000 participants this year, says Todd Jackson, Director of Big Blue Adventure. “The Donner Lake Triathlon is held at a truly beautiful and energetic location,” Jackson says. “The scenery is epic.” The swim is held in the clear, alpine Donner Lake, on its leeward/western shore, which makes for a typically low wind and calm water conditions for the start. “Also we can watch the sunrise just prior to the start,” Jackson says. From the start at West End Beach, you’ll see “granite and volcanic rock...

DIY Diary Alternatives

Almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, hemp seeds, soybeans and oats can all be liquefied with water and turned into plant-based milks. “Blending up a variety of plant-based milks creates huge opportunity for nutrient diversity, as well as taste bud satisfaction,” says Tess Masters, author of The Blender Girl: Super-Easy, Super-Healthy Meals, Snacks, Desserts, and Drinks. “Homemade milks are delicious, and you can completely control the integrity of the product—the quality of the raw ingredients, the texture, flavor and sugar levels.” RELATED: Dried Blueberry And Real Vanilla Bean Oatmeal Recipe The post DIY Diary Alternatives appeared first on Triathlete.com.

Osmo Water Pic Wednesday – Thanks to the Crowd!

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 7.51.45 PM I love, Love, LOVE getting water pic suggestions from blog readers and I’m super excited to share a few of my favorites! My Dynamo buddy Karl tweeted Popular Mechanics’ list of 10 incredibly cool swimming pools, including this crazy floating pool planned for New York City’s East River (also brought to my attention by Lectie): 2016. NYC. I need to check out this pool!!! And then go eat some New York pizza, of course!! As if lusting over domestic swimming holes isn’t enough, Tim sent me a CRAZY pic of what looks like an underwater waterfall in Mauritius: What?!?!? Where is Mauritius? And what the heck is an underwater waterfall?!?! I desperately needed to know so thank goodness for Google!! Answers: Mauritius is a little island off the coast of Africa And the “underwater waterfall” effect is actually sand falling into an underwater crevasse. Read all about it HERE. Mauritius actually made the Reader’s Choice list of the 35 Clearest Waters to Swim...

Do Professional Runners/Triathletes Matter?

Monday 02 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
Last week the Competitor Group announced their plan to drop their elite athlete program at all of their races, including the wildly popular Rock n’ Roll run series. They felt that the cost of continuing this program outweighed the benefit of bringing in top level athletes to their races. This news was very disappointing to me on a number of levels.I believe that professionals offer a type of credibility to a race. The pointy end of the field is the focus of media attention and the times that are set by pros often inspire those finishing behind them – a barometer of what the human body is capable of doing.The value of the professional athlete, whether at a running or triathlon event, has always been debatable. There are people who just don’t care what is happening in front of them at any given race while others staunchly follow the frontrunners and look forward to seeing how they perform. But, to those who don’t care about the pros, I hope my discourse will change your mind and help you...

The Fitness Conundrum

Sunday 01 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
It is a very fine line between ultimate fitness and injury. Whenever an athlete boasts that they are in the best shape of their life, inevitably they get injured shortly thereafter. I call it the fitness conundrum. In the triathlon world, athletes like Emma Snowsill, Lisa Norden, Paula Findlay and Terenzo Bozzone sustained serious injuries immediately after a seriously awesome performance. At the 2008 Olympics, Deena Kastor broke her foot during the marathon. Before every Olympics and World Championships, hordes of athletes pull out due to injury.I am now one of those athletes. This summer, I was arguably in the best running shape of my life. My half marathon times improved immensely, I saw times on the track I never imagined I would see again, I floated through my weekly long runs. I was on fire. And then, bam, just like that, I got injured. The America’s Finest City half marathon two weeks ago was my best race this season. I did not set a PR, but given the course terrain, my overall...

Colorado Half Marathon race report

Monday 06 May 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
Experience plays a huge role when it comes to racing. Take yesterday’s race, the Colorado Half Marathon, for example. Just before Mark dropped off my friend Jimmy and me at the bus that would transport us to the start, I asked Jimmy if he had any toilet paper; you know, just in case. He did not. I supplied him with some tissues and grabbed some for myself. As the bus jostled along to the starting area, I was anxiously anticipating using the facilities. When we finally pulled into the designated area, there was a bank of Porta Potties with hundreds of people lingering around them. For some reason, though, all of the bathrooms were open. The reason, you ask? They forgot to stock them with toilet paper! Jimmy and I did the happy dance and moseyed into the empty bathrooms. If 20 years of racing has taught me anything, it is always bring toilet paper on a run. Just as we emerged from our respective loos, dozens of rolls of toilet paper were delivered and the unhappy lingerers bee lined to...

New Partnership with OSMO Nutrition

Tuesday 08 Jul 2014 Bevan
Having been derailed by stomach and gastrointestinal issues for over 7 months, Bevan Docherty overcomes his sports nutritional challenges with guidance from exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist, Dr. Stacy Sims (Fairfax, CA – July 7th, 2014) – OSMO Nutrition, creators of sports hydration and recovery products specifically optimized for male and female physiology and based on peer-reviewed science and fieldwork with athletes, is pleased to welcome Pro Triathlete, two-time Olympic Medalist and World Champion, Bevan Docherty to their team.
