70.3 Racine

Date: Sunday 17 July 2016 Add To Calendar
Location: Racine, Wisconsin (United States)

The 1.2-mile swim course is a point to point along North Beach in Lake Michigan. North Beach Park is open for practice during the normal swimming season - weather permitting. Water temperature is almost always less than 78 degrees. Wetsuits are allowed and encouraged. North Beach is named a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beach Council. The Bike Course is an exciting 56-mile course through the scenic countryside of Racine County. This is a mostly rolling course with some challenging hills mixed in to keep you honest. This unique run course is a 13.1-mile double out-and-back that features a tour of the Racine Zoo, offering participants views of lions, black rhinos, monkeys, giraffes, kangaroos, and many more exotic animals. The remaining course runs along the beautiful Lake Michigan coastline as you make your way toward the Racine Lighthouse to the run turn around at Shoop Park. The course is very flat and fast!

Bahrain Endurance silver lining weekend

Bahrain Endurance silver lining weekend

Wednesday 25 May 2016 [Triathlon News]

Jan Frodeno stamped his ticket to Kona with a second place finish at Ironman Lanzarote on Sunday. The current Ironman World Champion led out of the swim, but a helmet malfunction in transition delayed his entry onto the bike course. With the day’s second fastest bike split, Frodeno once again put himself into position to win, taking to the front at five kilometers into the marathon. It was only in the last third of the run leg that eventual winner Jesse Thomas took the lead and then the win. more

Nilsson and Bilham Brilliant in Barcelona

Nilsson and Bilham Brilliant in Barcelona

Monday 23 May 2016 [Triathlon News]

The Swiss women's champion impresses while the Swedish men’s champion strikes late. Smart tactics pay off a lot in long-distance events. Swede Patrik Nilsson was working hard for the win at IRONMAN 70.3 Barcelona, but moreover, was waiting long for the right moment to make his move. When Guillem Rojas (ESP) led the men’s pro field out of the water in 23:25, Nilsson was in 11th, but only 11 seconds behind and already in the mix. more

5 Tips To Improve Your Focus

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Triathlete.com
Head into the triathlon season with a sharper mental edge. Laser-like focus is a hallmark of champions in sport, and a strong mental focus in the late stages of a race gives a competitor a winning edge. Mental focus, like fitness, can be trained. Here are five tips to train your attention and improve your focus: 1. Use self-talk. The internal monologue set in motion during races has a powerful influence on performance. A recent study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise showed that positive self-talk increased time to exhaustion. The signals our bodies use to determine when we’ve had enough are complicated—they are not just governed by our muscles but also determined subjectively by our brains. Pick a mantra such as “feeling good” or “smooth and strong,” and repeat it at regular intervals during a workout or competition to help tap into that last bit of energy needed for a PR.

Technical FAQ: Tyre Widths, Pressures and more

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Paul Moore
Wider tires, like the 27mm FMB Paris-Roubaix, can be used at lower pressures to increase ride comfort. Photo: Caley Fretz | VeloNews.com   Question: 23mm vs. 25mm tyres   Dear Lennard, I ride with a group of recreational road riders who do, on average, 100 kilometers per week. Recently, most of the riders have switched from 23mm to 25mm tyres and like the ride better (whatever that means). As a theoretical question, if you had one 23mm and one 25mm, which would you put on the front and why? — Doug Dear Doug, Well, I would put the bigger tyre on the rear. It gives you more cushioning, and that’s where you need it more. The bigger tire size also reduces rolling resistance, and that will make more difference on the tyre that is supporting more weight — the rear tyre. The 25mm tyre also gives you more traction, assuming you’re running lower pressure in it than in the 23mm one. I suppose arguments about traction could be made for either the front or rear wheel. ― Lennard The post...

How To Choose The ‘Right’ Race

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Paul Moore
Photo by Tom Shaw/Getty ImagesIt’s advantageous for all triathletes to choose events that are best suited to their strengths, but it’s particularly important for time-crunched triathletes. Here’s why: When balancing your commitment to triathlon with a full-time job and a family, you need to squeeze out the greatest benefit from everything you do in training. If you don’t have an overabundance of base fitness (many of us simply don’t have an extra 12-plus hours per week to train), it pays to be more selective about the competitions you enter. Here are some factors to consider when selecting the “right” race. Season and Geography Athletes who live and train at an elevation greater than 5,000 feet above sea level, often feel like Superman in races at lower elevations. In contrast, those living and training at sea level might not have their best performance at a high-altitude triathlon. Considering heat and humidity is also key. If you’re training in a dry environment, you’re more likely...

Finding The Balance: Aerobic Work Vs. High-Intensity Training

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Triathlete.com
Q. My coach prefers more aerobic work over a lot of threshold and high-intensity training. Am I missing out? A: I get that training in your base zone isn’t sexy, can be frustrating at times (especially when your friends #humblebrag about their hammer fests), and can feel like you’re not doing all that much. However training between 60 and 80 percent allows for similar training adaptations to the upper zones, helps balance other stressors and allows you to train consistently for long periods of time without interruptions like fatigue or injury. Similar benefits: You’re still increasing plasma volume, lactate threshold, muscle glycogen storage and your VO2max while training in your aerobic zones. When implementing higher intensities—FTP wattage, 5–10K pace work on the run, etc.—I keep the durations fairly low and sprinkle it in when appropriate for personal development. It’s probably less time than you think. Physical stress: Trying to balance all of life’s stressors (crabby boss,...

Sports Illustrated's Fittest 50 2016!!

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Jessi Stensland
Si_parkour_cropped Yours truly one of the 50 Fittest? Well.....if as Tom Myers says these days... "You are fit if you can adapt to the demands of your environment with ease and imagination." ...then YES! It's the agility component over any/all terrain I'm most stoked on evolving these days in addition to strength, cardio, endurance that I have such experience with from my past. SO FUN. Cool that SI acknowledged quite a range of "fitness" in this list. It's this definition of fit that I relate to these days, having a desire to be both comfortable and capable on land, in the air or water...on my feet, a bike, skis, scuba, kayaks, or now with parkour.

Reflections on the Adventure that was 2015

Friday 08 Jan 2016 Jessi Stensland

Time does fly when you're having fun. Come along if you'd like :) First of all - thank YOU - to everyone who was a part of my year, in mind, body and/or spirit. The reflections below do not tell all. Above all YOU made this my best year yet... Snapshot: This year I moved. A lot. For the first half of the year my lifestyle was active; my work was active; daily outdoor adventure was the norm. My mind was challenged more by physical tasks than intellectual stimulation, which perhaps was why it went into overdrive for the second half of the year with the conceptualization, creation and launch of FEET FREEX - a movement to inspire a greater understanding and use of feet and footwear innovations designed to suit them. Threads that weave their way through my day to day these days... Love. Curiosity. Fun. Being aware and fully alive. Incidental education. Traveling...

Race Recap: Las Catalinas Triathlon

Wednesday 15 Apr 2015 Jessi Stensland
11045325_836150786468070_8660503337038089633_o One of my favorite triathlons I've done hands down.  Small town vibe, amazing calm clear blue water for the swim, 99% of the bike and run was on singletrack and a finish on the main street of the town I've been calling home.  The ice cold mobile sponge baths on the run were icing on the cake!!  Won the ladies division...simply felt great and glad to be a part of the community.  Managed an "a cachete" (ah kah-cheh-teh) to my Costa Rican buddy Juan Carlos as we passed on the course who taught me the slang street phrase, meaning "con todo" or well stocked, but similar to saying “belly full.” As he explained it, all is good and we've got all we need, nothing more...just about right for that moment.  Hard work on the hills but so satisfying and fantastic. My favorite quote of the day came from Charles Brewer the founder of this new town of Las Catalinas, who also did the triathlon, winning his age group: "I think this is the greatest day in Las Catalinas history," he said as he glanced...

Hello from Squamish BC Canada!

Thursday 01 May 2014 Jessi Stensland
IMG_0495 Landed in Squamish! and other than what I'd been hearing from a couple of key friends about how great this place is and of course knowing it's close proximity to Whistler...I didn't know what I was in for. It was made clear upon arrival.  Boulder has its Flatirons...Squamish has THE CHIEF...AND the sea...and old gorgeous green old growth forests...               I've only been driven by the MTB trails as my shoes seem to have been left behind in Boulder, but should be here shortly.  They seem INSANE and INNUMERABLE...more on that later. In the meantime - keep Squamish on your adventure destination list.  It truly is Canada's Outdoor Recreation Capital.
