Triathlon history made at the historic setting of Castle Howard

Monday 25 Jul 2016 Paul Moore
The sun was shining for a glorious triathlon festival this weekend at Castle Howard in Yorkshire (23/24 July 2016). Triathletes made history; Smales and Seymour broke the course records for the Gauntlet (half iron distance), inspirational Bailey Matthews returned with a PB and Claire Cunningham, British Olympic Para Triathlete, joined the sprint field before setting off for the Rio Olympics 2016. 2,000 competitors accomplished their own tri achievements over the eight admirable distances including top elites, first timers and 500 children. Bailey back and faster than ever 1 year ago, a little boy with cerebral palsy demonstrated what true courage looks like by completing his first ever Triathlon at Castle Howard at the age 8. Now, one year on, Bailey was back, having completed a further three triathlons, returning to the venue that launched his amazing journey to inspire a nation. Faster than ever, with a 7 minute PB, Bailey once more broke the hearts of the huge crowd as he crossed...

How to prevent muscle cramping

Monday 25 Jul 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: EndurapixLeg cramping will literally stop you in your tracks. Not only can those involuntary contractions of muscles be pesky annoyances, they are also painful problems that can leave a particular muscle sore for hours and days to follow. For decades endurance athletes have been told that muscle cramping was due to things like dehydration, electrolyte imbalances and low potassium—eat more bananas and consume more sports drinks, and you’ll skirt the issue. The latest theory, however, suggests that muscle cramping is oftentimes due to fatigue, rather than solely a nutritional deficit. “More evidence is showing that cramps may be due to central and/or peripheral neuromuscular fatigue versus electrolyte loss,” explains Charlie Boeyink, a physical therapist and endurance coach with Cadence Physical Therapy and Performance Coaching. Boeyink points to duration and intensity as two of the biggest cramp-causing culprits. Put simply, if you haven’t trained your body to withstand a certain...

Mont Tremblant 70.3 2016

Thursday 30 Jun 2016 Lsanderstri
Swim Start Mont Tremblant holds a special place in my heart. This is where I started to truly believe that I could compete with the best in the world, after finishing fourth at the 70.3 World Championships behind Javier Gomez, Jan Frodeno and Tim Don. It also happens to be where Erin did her first Ironman, and where my mom did her first full Ironman (after finishing the swim cancelled Ironman Florida in 2014). My mom, Erin and myself were all competing again this year in the 70.3, so it was sure to be a memorable experience. I put in four solid training blocks after St. George. My training blocks look like this: Day 1: Hard Day 2: Easy Day 3: Hard Day 4: Easy with long run Day 5: Brick Day 6: Easy with long bike Day 7: Hard Day 8: Active recovery Day 9: Off Day 10: Active recovery I will say, I did not give the active recovery days enough respect after the first two blocks. I went to bed late, woke up early, and did not hydrate / replenish nutrients adequately. By the third block I was feeling...

A pregnant pause

Tuesday 24 May 2016 Admin
22 week bump It’s safe to say that life has changed quite a lot since my last blog. My last update came in January fresh from my return from Chile and the Cayman Island: two half ironman in two weeks and I was setting out my race plans for 2016. Soon after coming home to Boulder we learnt I was pregnant! Big news for us! Big excitement! And, big changes ahead! It’s taken me a while to write an update about pregnancy life and that’s for a few reasons. Early on we wanted to keep things quiet. I found the first trimester to be a….I think confusing is the right word…time. We were massively excited and felt great joy seeing the positive pregnancy result, seeing our baby on the scan, hearing the heart beat but that excitement was coupled with a nervousness. During the first trimester the risk of miscarriage is at it’s highest and I felt like I was balancing a desire to plan and imagine the adventures ahead whilst at the same time feeling a certain reserve to not let myself get too far ahead of myself....

Moments of Kona – Go on a final training run with Luke and Beth before the big show in Kona.

Tuesday 06 Oct 2015 Luke McKenzie
Long runs are a must when training for an Ironman. The majority of the professionals include one every week in order to prepare for their races because the physical costs of these sessions are comparably high. In order to reduce the stress on the joints, these runs are ideally done on gravel roads instead of tarmac. Moments of Sport followed Luke McKenzie and Beth Gerdes on one of their last long runs in the back country of Kona. View on Moments of Kona
