How to tackle the hills on your bike

Friday 06 May 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: John David BeckerWe’ve all seen triathletes muscle up rollers at lightning speed only to watch them reach the crest and soft-pedal, or worse—coast to the bottom. Unless the goal of the session is a hill repeat, this is not the way to dose your effort, especially during a race. Repeatedly burning your matches uphill will not only slow you down overall, but it will cause you to tire before the end of the race. There are two parts to rolling a hill: the technique and the effort. Technique Don’ts – „Don’t hammer from the bottom of the hill in the hardest gear possible. – Don’t muscle up every climb without using the small ring. – Don’t shift under heavy pressure. – Don’t automatically get out of the aero position on every hill. Technique Do’s – „Anticipate gearing changes needed in advance and prepare accordingly to avoid dropping your chain. – As you begin to crest the climb, shift into an easier gear and increase your cadence. – As you roll down the other side, shift into harder...

Drills To Target Your Swim Weaknesses

Friday 06 May 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockDrills are most effective when they target your specific stroke limitations. Instead of aimlessly lollygagging through another Fist Drill, identify your problem first then do the drills that focus on your weakness. Your problem: “I don’t move forward when I kick.” Vertical kick: Focus on a small and quick kicking cadence that originates at your hips. – Novice: Keep arms underwater and use a small sculling motion with your hands for added buoyancy. – Intermediate: Lock arms at sides and do not use hands. – Advanced: Hold hands above surface of the water. Kick with fins: Use long, pliable rubber fins. Fins will allow you to feel the correct kicking motion and help you build muscle memory. Your problem: “I feel out of breath after one lap of the pool.” Humdingers: Hum your favorite song as you swim a length of the pool. This will force you to exhale out your nose and reduce the buildup of carbon dioxide in your lungs. Breathing pattern: Establish a...

Specific Ironman 70.3 brick sessions

Friday 06 May 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: John David BeckerI am often asked how much running off the bike should be done, and for how long. This depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your bike-run (brick) workout. Very generally speaking a time ratio of 2:1 for your cycling:running training works well. This is just a starting point. You must also consider your personal strengths and weaknesses, as well as the course specifics of your target event. There are three basic types of brick workouts useful for the half-iron distance: a cycle-emphasis brick, a run-emphasis brick and a race simulation brick. Cycle-Emphasis Brick A cycle-emphasis brick consists of a 3 to 4.5 hour ride immediately followed by a 15 to 40 minute run. Perform your workouts on a course that simulates that of your goal race. If you live in a flat area and your goal race is hilly, then include some hill simulations on your trainer or low cadence (50-75 RPM) tempo efforts on the flats. Run off the bike at your goal race pace for 50% of the...

Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie

Monday 22 Feb 2016 Conrad
Now that I’m retired from racing, I love trail riding just for fun. Stellenbosch (South Africa) has plenty of great trails, like the new Red Route in Jonkershoek. In the edit I drop my Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie into the rocks. I ride the 3 inch wide 650B tyres quite soft- 18psi rear 15 psi front (1.2 and 1 Bar) they just soak up the trail rubble and let you rail the trail. Caveman’s go everywhere, do anything bike! Read more about the technology here.     The post Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie appeared first on Conrad Stoltz XTERRA Triathlete.

Food is Medicine

Wednesday 04 May 2016 Jaimie Jacobs
Food is something that our household LOVES, even more than food we LOVE to feel fighting fit, happy and with energy to spare. So refined sugar is out, and anything nutritious, tasty and that feels good is in! This yummy creation of mine is a happy marriage of protein, healthy fats, refined sugar free, dairy free, and wheat free but most importantly it is quick to prepare and it’s texture/taste will leave you smiling and sufficiently full:) Banana Coconut Bread 2 mashed Bananas 2 Eggs beaten 1 cup Almond Meal 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil ½ cup shredded Coconut ½ cup 100% Maple Syrup ¼ cup Coconut Flour 1 tsp Baking Powder 1 Tbs Cinnamon round ½ cup dried Prunes thinly sliced   Method *Preheat oven to 180 degrees. *Mix all wet ingrediants into a bowl (bananas, eggs, olive oil, maple syrup). *Sift in almond meal, baking powder, coconut flour, cinnamon, shredded coconut. *Pour into a greased or lined baking paper cake container (I use a bread container) and place prunes...

4 Years; a Lifetime Away or Just Around the Corner?

Sunday 01 May 2016 Noreply@blogger.com (Non Stanford)
The last time I laced up my racing shoes on South African soil the circumstances in some respects were the same, but on the whole, they couldn't have been more different.  First race of the season. Check.Olympic year. Check.Table mountain in the background. Check.Genuine, if not slightly unnecessary, fear of being eaten by sharks whilst dressed as a seal. Check. That's probably where the similarities end, because fortunately, the day's played out very differently. The first occasion was in February 2012. An early season Continental Cup. I was on the points chase. Not an Olympic points chase. Far from it. I just wanted enough points to maybe, just maybe, get one of those elusive World Series starts. So shiny and exciting in all their blue carpeted glory. I had two or three rather dismal attempts the season before on the big stage, most of which had ended with DNF's for one reason or another. Lapped athlete being an almost reoccurring theme. Undeterred however, I was...
