The Rio Crystal Ball

Wednesday 27 Jul 2016 Liam Bromilow
Liam Bromilow | pic Janos Schmidt With the Rio Olympics now less than a fortnight away, we dust off firstoffthebike.com’s crystal ball and delve into the men’s race on August 18, and the women’s race on August 20. With the men’s race thrown into some sort of chaos after the withdrawal of Javier Gomez, and the women’s race finally seeing the Jorgensen v Spirig battle, Rio will be one of the most highly anticipated races over triathlon’s short Olympic career. Men The tension was rife, early on the Thursday morning, as the water glistened as it rolled onto the sand at Fort Copacabana. The 56 men, representing the 31 nations from across the globe, were all staring daggers at the Brownlee brothers, who were at short odds to repeat their podium performances from four years earlier. Immediately from the starters gun, it was déjà vu from London, as Richard Varga opened the throttle and was a lead out train for the main stars. Aaron Royle, Joe Maloy, Vincent Luis and Igor Polyanskiy, among...

Should My Pre-Race Meal Differ From What I Eat In Training?

Tuesday 26 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
The food you eat from five minutes up to four hours before activity helps refuel your muscles and brain, which are depleted overnight—on average, athletes can lose up to 25 percent of their glycogen stores by morning. Whether it is the “A” race or a big training day, your sports nutrition practice and routines are critical for improving your performance. Pre-event meals should emulate those on training days. Pre-activity meals should consist primarily of carbohydrates and fluids. Aim for 100–150 grams of easy-to-digest carbohydrates in the 2–3 hours leading up to an event, allowing enough time for digestion and absorption. A sample meal would be a bagel (salted if a hot day) with nut butter and honey plus 20–24 ounces of sports drink. My go-to is a smoothie made with protein powder (10–20 grams maximum, only used for blood sugar regulation) and fruit, with an English muffin with almond butter and honey. Be mindful that as the amount of food and fat (nut butters or nuts) consumed...

Pedal Pusher: Finding The Right Pedals For You

Tuesday 26 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
Make the right decision about your most important contact point.  Few gear choices come with higher levels of partisanship for experienced cyclists and triathletes than pedals. Perhaps the most important contact point you have with your bike, pedals have the critical role of transferring power from your legs to your drivetrain. Which system is most efficient is a hotly debated topic, but figuring out the best option for your needs should come down to a few key features: float, ease of entry and exit, weight and price. Here’s an overview of the three most popular pedal brands among triathletes: Shimano, Speedplay and Look. Shimano Benefits: Secure standby, trickle-down performance Shimano is the market leader in pedals and cleats. Their pedals are known for their extra-wide platforms and they also have trickled down carbon pedal bodies from Dura-Ace to Ultegra and 105 models. Different cleat options offer varying amounts of float, which is how much your foot can rotate around the...

Expectations, Integrity, & Necessity

Wednesday 29 Jun 2016 Admin
20151012_153819_resized I often find when I’m struggling to digest my feelings after a race, it’s best to write and just be honest; with myself and with the world of my friends, family and fellow tri-people. It seems in this world we live in, we love to broadcast of all the great; social media allows us to put out the persona we choose, to make our life look to be ‘something’ that it may or may not be. But we often post what is appealing, positive, and feel-good inducing. I tend to prefer to talk to people personally, and I like to communicate what is “real” as much as possible. I went into Coeur d’Alene 70.3 somewhat haphazard; not in my lack of wanting to perform well, but in my preparations. Some of this was due to extenuating circumstances, but some by choice. I took a good rest after Ironman Texas which was needed. I got back into training but did so in a relaxed manner, still dealing with some foot pain. At times I opted to ride with friends rather than hammer alone for hours on end. It was fun. We...

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....
