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

Swim Drafting: Getting It Right

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Thierry Sourbier/EndurapixIf you do it properly, swimming behind another athlete can save upward of 30 percent energy expenditure on race day… Truth: You are wasting time and energy if you are not drafting in the swim leg of a triathlon. There are no rules against drafting another swimmer as long as you do not impede or obstruct their movement. How to make the most of the draft zone: Get in position The best and easiest place to draft in open water is directly behind the feet of another swimmer. This position does not cause any interference with the lead swimmer and allows the drafting swimmer to keep track of the leader by following a trail of bubbles. Every time you lift your head to sight the buoys and check your direction, you break neutral body position in the water and lose speed. Following the bubbles of another swimmer allows the drafter to sight less often and save more energy. Follow etiquette Proper etiquette advocates not touching or tapping the feet and legs...

TOWER 26:Be Race ready Podcast

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Paul Moore
Episode #7: TECHNIQUE- What you NEED to know(Part 4) OVERSUBSCRIBED SWIM TEACHINGS- Early Vertical Forearm and Distance Per Stroke On this episode Gerry and Jim continue the swim technique discussion by addressing common buzzwords heard often in swim education such as Early Vertical Forearm and distance per stroke. Gerry and Jim explain through a history lesson that the Early Vertical Forearm has not made swimmers that much faster and that most triathletes do not have the flexibility to correctly execute the early vertical forearm. The Early Vertical Forearm is not the Holy Grail that triathlete think it is. Distance Per Stroke is efficient but does not lend itself to high velocity. When focussing on distance per stroke there is a lot of deceleration during the stroke which is not beneficial to a fast swim split. Through Gerry’s years of coaching swimmers of all ability levels he has developed different view points on the often talked about subjects.  Listen in to learn so you...

Change of Pace: The Benefits of Bike Racing

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Paul Moore
Want to completely overhaul your cycling? Then bike racing may be the ticket. Partly in homage to the Tour de France, partly because it’s a good idea, former pro cyclist and coach Robbie Ventura turned some triathletes into cyclists for a season. When they came back to triathlon, they not only blew away their bike PBs, they ran faster with stronger cycling legs. In addition to practicing cornering and drafting, you should learn three major skills: tactics, positioning and surging. Here’s how: Test Race Tactics Race tactics and energy conservation may be the toughest things to learn as a triathlete in bike racing. These are just as important as developing power and fitness—maybe more. Start with some hard group rides, which can serve as a testing ground to practice your race tactics. (Note: Before you attack your local group or sit on the strongest guy like a barnacle, make sure they’re accepting of your antics.) Experiment early on in your racing career, focusing on building...

10 Things that Happen when you retire from Pro Triathlon:

Wednesday 25 May 2016 Admin
Words Matty White | Pic Phil Wrochna 1: You realise that the goth emo pimple faced 15 year old serving you your Bacon and Egg Mcmuffin was actually on a better hourly rate than you were while you were training and racing for a living! 2: You go for a very rare bike ride, but when you do you leave the house at 10am, and ride to the closest coffee shop making sure you have your front and back light flashing, this will make people realise you have been riding since 4am in pitch black darkness….so pro! 3: You become a Triathlon Coach and slowly realise that some of your age group athletes had more sponsors than you, so you ask them for a discount on your next pair of runners! 4: You sadly scroll through the 60-65 age group results in races and wonder if an age group world championship is within your reach when you make your comeback in 2027 5: Your main source of income becomes Triathlon marketplace. 6: Your second source of income becomes Triathlon Marketplace. 7: You join a...

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.
