Potts Unbeatable in Canada

Potts Unbeatable in Canada

Monday 25 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

Andy Potts put the hammer down on the swim and bike and then cruised the run for a well executed race plan at the Subaru IRONMAN Canada. Andy Potts (USA) put his swim prowess to good use in Alta Lake as his 47:03 swim clocking had him run into T1 with advantages of 2:47 to 3:06 on Trevor Wurtele (CAN), Pedro Gomes (PRT), Mike Aigroz (CHE), Maik Twelsiek (DEU) and Elliot Holthan (CAN). more

Collington, Wurtele win world‘s northernmost half distance race Challenge Iceland

Monday 25 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

Situated in the stunning “Bay of Whales” in Iceland, the world‘s northernmost half distance triathlon race, CHALLENGEICELAND, took place on Saturday 23 July 2016. The 1.9km swim course took place in the crystal clean Meðalfellsvatn fresh water lake (temperature was 15C), and the one loop 90km bike race with rolling hills and short climbs on the old main road of Hvalfjörður is one the most iconic bike routes in Iceland (total elevation 920m). Another beautiful country road with long hills of Kjós more

Monday 25 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

Daniela Ryf and Ronnie Schildknecht took sensational wins at the 20th IRONMAN Switzerland. While Ryf set a race record in 8:51:50 in Zurich, the 36-year old race legend Schildknecht celebrated his ninth win in 8:17:04.

Monday 25 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

Heather Jackson was in a league of her own in her dominant course record win at IRONMAN Lake Placid. Alicia Kaye (CAN) was first to emerge from the water of Mirror Lake after pulling away from South Africa’s Annah Watkinson by over five minutes and putting close to six minutes on the race favorite Heather Jackson (USA). The remainder of the field was well over six minutes behind as they headed towards T1. more

Saturday 23 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

ETU has a packed weekend with the focus on Poznan, where the titles will be fought over at the 2016 Poznan ETU Challenge Long Distance Triathlon European Championships. After the rather disappointing show last year in Weymouth, where finding anyone who was not British was in itself a challenge, we see a start list in Poznan that truly represents the variety that the European Federations are. more

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...

Ironman Canada 2016 – Analyzing Results

Monday 25 Jul 2016 Thorsten
Race Conditions After last year’s rain and cold (and corresponding slow times), this year’s race in Whistler was much quicker in all three legs. Andy Potts posted new swim and bike course records, but even though he ran a sub-3 marathon it was pretty obvious that he wasn’t going for the overall course record. Kona Qualifying Implications A lot of athletes were looking for a final push in their KPR total. Andy Potts, Pedro Gomes and Trevor Wurtele secured their slots. For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the July cutoff.

Ironman Lake Placid 2016 – Analyzing Results

Monday 25 Jul 2016 Thorsten
Race Conditions With only a few previously rated finishers, the data is not very conclusive but quite in line with the previous Pro races there have been in Lake Placid: a course rating of -3:34 and slow across all three legs. Heather Jackson had a great day, smashing both the bike course record  (previously held by Amy Marsh from 2010) and the overall course record (previously held by Heather Wurtele from 2011) by ten minutes. Kona Qualifying Implications Heather Jackson validated her Kona slot by winning the race, and Alicia Kaye who was in all likelihood safe before the race finished third, gaining some more IM racing experience. For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the July cutoff. Female Race Results Rank Name Nation Swim Bike Run Time Diff to expected Prize Money 1 Heather Jackson USA 01:00:22 04:57:36 03:07:00 09:09:42 -18:35 US$ 20000 2 Annah Watkinson ZAF 00:59:41 05:21:17 03:18:45 09:45:00 -08:22 US$ 10000 3 Alicia...

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....

Boulder Sprint Tri

Sunday 24 Jul 2016 Noreply@blogger.com (Donna Phelan)
Happy to finish 2nd female and 11th overall at the Boulder Sprint Triathlon today (750m swim/28km bike/5km run). "Fun" waking up the fast twitch fibers, but yikes, I forgot how hard short races are!Congrats to Amy Quirion from Boulder on the win and Sally Wang from Taiwan on taking 3rd.

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

RACE REPORT – PUCON IRONMAN 70.3

Friday 23 Jan 2015 Luke McKenzie
IMG_2230 I had first raced at the Pucon Ironman 70.3 two years ago and it went straight to the top for my favorite races list. This classic event has been around for a long time and is definitely one I would encourage every triathlete to experience. It isn’t just the event itself but the location, the town, the people and the atmosphere that make it so enjoyable and fun. I was disappointed to miss the race in 2014 because I had just completed a 6 day, 1300km charity ride in Australia a week prior and obviously Beth was pregnant so we stayed home in California. When the opportunity to travel to the 2015 race came several months ago I mentioned it to Beth and it didn’t take much convincing on my part for her to agree. I will probably never arrive in Pucon in good race shape as it is tough to start racing so early in the season and post holidays. I will continue to compete at this race in the future regardless because I think the enjoyment factor of racing for the pure love of it will win out on...
