Balazs Csoke, Ironman Lake Placid

Thursday 31 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

I find it kind of funny that each time after I finish a tough race I almost always promise myself two things: 1) I will never do this again 2) I will never race on this course again. And I thought both of these thoughts last year after I finished 4th place with a sprint finish at Ironman Lake Placid. However, as the race drew nearer and nearer I couldn’t have been more excited to race in Lake Placid again this year. So it’s safe to say, as a triathlete, I sometimes either have a short term memor more

I’ve got a couple little niggles that won’t go away–things you just sort of deal with on race day–but everybody has something going on, so hopefully it all comes good. It’s just hard sitting around waiting!” Cunningham looks forward to competing in his own backyard, although race day proximity to the comforts of home can be both a blessing and a curse, he says. “The same as with the Boulder 70.3, it will be nice to sleep in my own bed and get up and do my own routine.

Triathlon Leads Army Colonel To Inspire Others

Photo: Justin LeeArmy Lt. Col. Patty Collins will guide blind athlete Amy Dixon through Sunday’s New York City Triathlon. Read the story from USA Today below. If you are to believe two athletes lining up for the 2014 Panasonic New York City Triathlon on Sunday, well-trained lungs and a pocketful of courage make up the two pre-requisites for Olympic distance triathlons. A little teamwork doesn’t hurt, either. Amy Dixon, a blind sommelier from Greenwich, Conn., will rely on Army Lt. Col. Patty Collins to navigate swimming 1,500 meters, cycling 40 kilometers and running 10K through Central Park and past some of NYC’s iconic areas. Sunday’s triathlon is expected to draw 4,000 athletes. A purse of $30,000 will be awarded to pro category triathletes and $7,500 for top competitors in the Accenture Challenged Athletes International Championship. The Dixon-Collins duo isn’t your traditional guide and athlete team. A paratrooper, Collins is in charge of...

Lemongrass Rice With Pan Seared Scallops Recipe

Thursday 31 Jul 2014 Jessica Cerra
This recipe is a great way to liven up brown rice with bright lemongrass and a unique combo of veggies. Scallops are a great source of omega-3’s and vitamin B12, both great for cardiovascular health and therefore any triathlete. If cooking scallops is foreign to you, this step-by-step recipe will demonstrate a quick and easy cooking method. Ingredients Makes 4-5 servings Rice 3 cups cooked brown rice 1 large yam or sweet potato, peeled and finely diced 1 ear corn, kernels removed 2 cups broccoli florets, finely chopped 2 cups shitake mushrooms, or similar, sliced 2 packets dried lemongrass soup mix, or 1 cup lemongrass soup* Juice of 2 large limes ¼ cup freshly chopped cilantro 1 tablespoon canola oil 1 tablespoon freshly minced ginger ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper Scallops 16 jumbo sea scallops 1 tablespoon olive oil ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper *Preparing lemongrass from raw form is quite time consuming.

The Balancing Act: Speed vs. Endurance

Thursday 31 Jul 2014 Steve Magness
If you mess up the training balance, go the other way—gradually. While many runners can tend to overcomplicate training, when you get down to the bare bones of it all, training is essentially a balancing act. Trying to balance those two extremes of endurance and speed in the best way possible is they key to reaching our racing goals. There is a reason why we build a base before doing speed work, or include a mixture of tempo runs and 400-meter repeats during the training cycle. If we put too much undeserved emphasis on either side of the coin, performance plummets and overtraining often results. While the exact balance of speed and endurance depends on the runner and the distance they’re training for, there are scientific reasons as to why this balance is so important and some practical lessons to be learned if we mess things up. To keep the concept simple and usable, I like to look at work that is faster than race pace and work that is slower than race pace as two opposing forces in a...

Helping others

Saturday 26 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Amelia Pearson)
My role as a triathlon coach is all about helping others. It is very rewarding when I see others inspired to improve and achieve. Sport does not always have to be about winning, it can be just as, sometimes more, satisfying to know you are out there doing your best.A recent week at Tri4theAlps with some guests that are relatively new to the sport proved just this. It was a pretty awful week of weather but they were so keen to get out there and willing to learn that it really didn't matter. It was great to see them all improve over the week, in fitness, strength, endurance, skills and ultimately their confidence. I am really looking forward to following their progress and it gives me a buzz to know that I helped contribute to their future endeavours.I've also been helping some locals. Keeping track of them over a month or so now and watching the progress has been incredible. I am excited to be able to continue to work with them over time and hope I can continue to help them grow not...

Once the cannon fired though I was fine, adrenalin fixes everything!As usual I was a bit slow off at the start and pretty quickly spat out the back of the women's field. By the first buoy I had got into my rhythm and started chasing down the two girls I could still see in front of me. I eventually caught them about half way through the swim and then practiced 'staying on feet' for the rest of the swim. I'm still not good at all. I came out of the water in 5th place, close behind the 2 I'd been trying to 'sit on'. After exiting the water there...

Taking Triathlons into the Wild- NY Times article

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Conrad
Recent NY Times article on triathlons moving to the more adventurous side: [Most off-road racers start with traditional endurance events before moving on to off-road competitions. Conrad Stoltz, a professional triathlete from South Africa and four-time Xterra World Champion, started his career with traditional triathlons and competed in two Olympics. He now focuses on off-road competitions. “With road triathlon, you chase the white line on the road,” Stoltz said. “It’s all about taking as much pain as possible. He or she who trained the hardest and suffers the most usually wins. “To do well in off-road tris you need to be technically skilled, brave and robust, on top of being superfit and well trained.” “You go back to the Stone Age. You’re a caveman or cavewoman again.”] Read the whole article on the NYTimes link:  

Mont Tremblant 70.3

Tuesday 26 Jun 2012 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
If you want to experience Canadian beauty in it's truest form... Mont Tremblant is breath-taking...The Mayor, Governor General, race organizers and the community of Mont Tremblant have a dream of  this venue to be a place for not only one of the best races in the world but also a place where triathletes want to come to train and base. Every intricate detail was covered when it comes to this race. They put it on like it was the World Championships... I'm pretty sure everyone that you talk to that was here will voice the same thoughts. My vote is make Mont Tremblant 70.3 a future prospect of 70.3Championships!Race Start... The SnowBirds flew over top. As a kid growing up in Canada the SnowBirds were always an excitement and awe to behold as they would soar high above and put on such a spectacular show. I loved that I was racing in my country... I totally get the pride athletes feel when they are on the podium watching their flag being raised in honor of their victory. I felt this...
