Nail The Tempo Run

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Jené Shaw
Photo: Shutterstock.com Want to control your race pace? Nail that tempo run in training. Although it’s described slightly differently by many coaches (“Zone 3” or “uncomfortably hard,” for instance), the ever-important tempo run is an essential part of run training to get you race-ready. In Hansons Half-Marathon Method (VeloPress, $18.95), the authors point out the purpose of the tempo: “Tempo runs teach you an important skill: control. Even when the pace feels easy, these runs train you to hold back and maintain.” The Hansons coaches recommend doing tempo runs at goal race pace for the half-marathon distance. The purpose of a tempo run is to increase your running economy at your desired race pace and to raise your lactate threshold, that fine line where your body switches from burning fat to burning carbohydrates. Tempo runs are also when you’ll learn if you went out too hard (or too easy), and they serve as the perfect opportunity to experiment with the nutrition and gear you...

15 Foods To Keep You Hydrated

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Pip Taylor
Photo: Shutterstock.comYou know the importance of staying hydrated—for optimal health and function as well as for sports performance and recovery. But chugging on a water bottle is not the only approach. The food you eat plays a considerable role in providing your body with its daily water requirements. In fact, many fruits and vegetables are up to 90 percent water. You still need to drink fluids to provide all the hydration your body requires, but many of the most hydrating foods also contain essential electrolytes and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and sodium, as well as vitamins and amino acids. Summer is the perfect time to explore some of the best foods to help you stay hydrated and feeling and performing well. Add these foods to your shopping list this summer. RELATED: Redefining Hydration » Watermelon is a favorite in post-race recovery tents for a reason.

Six Common Mistakes Triathletes Make

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Joe Friel
Photo: John Segesta Legendary coach Joe Friel breaks down the six key mistakes he sees triathletes make and offers his expertise on how to properly fix them. 1. Poor ability to pace properly Almost all triathletes start the bike leg of the race at much too high an intensity and then fade as the race progresses. They start the run on tired legs and generally have a poor race (except for the first 5K of the bike). The fix: Athletes must learn to negative split races. This starts with workouts. Intervals must be done with the easiest first and then progressively get harder. Steady state/tempo workouts must start under control and gradually get faster to finish strong. Athletes must learn to be patient in workouts and apply that to their races while ignoring what is going on around them.

Men’s Race Without doubt, Andy Potts (USA) has been a standout in 2014. Wins at Ironman 70.3 New Orleans, Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon and Ironman Coeur d’Alene has Potts coming to the business end of the season in excellent form.

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...

THANK YOU for all the positive response to Smashfest Queen’s launch of their new HC Tri Kit! I’m so grateful to have not only incredible sponsor support (my own kit!?!? someone pinch me!!), but all of the nice comments on twitter, Facebook, in person, and online, have been equally amazing. I am one lucky girl and I cannot WAIT to see all that green and yellow goodness on the road! It’s not too late to get your own, pre-order links are HERE. As if that isn’t enough, it’s my birthday!!! And what am I doing? I’m going to OHIO!!!

Well Vineman 70.3 did not quite go to plan and adding my name to the winners trophy for a 2nd time did not turn out but as always I enjoyed the day and a huge congratulations must go out to the race crew on putting on another first class event.With a front "blow out" that went off like a shot gun about 1hr 20mins in the race for the win was over as I watched the front bunch of 6 roll away. Not wanting to waste the day I changed the flat collected my rubbish and got back on to get a solid day in of swim, bike and running in the bank for the next event the North American Ironman Championships in Mont-Tremblant Canada where I will try to defend my title from 2013.Although the day did not go to plan please see below a short clip of the days event.https://vimeo.com/101367204BestLuke

Damn. I exited the water in 11th place but within contact of the main pack with Rachel McBride 40 seconds ahead and Meredith & Laura 2:38 up the road.I moved into 7th place soon after mounting my bike as I took advantage of running my bike to the top of the steep hill instead of mounting at the bottom. My new bike was in tip top shape thanks to Alex at SRAM who came to see me as soon as I arrived in the States from Australia. He went over the bike with a fine-toothed...

Only have 30 minutes to swim? Get Caveman-BANG-for-your-30min swim set:

Conrad Stoltz, caveman, swimming, 30 minute swim workout, Blue Seventy, Suunto Ambit2s, Suunto Make pool time count.                          Photo by Hendrik Steytler Finding time to train for 3 sports is hard enough as it is. Last week I was at the Specialized Dealer Event and between riding 2015 bikes with dealers, presentations, expo, catching up with industry friends and bike & run training, I only had 30minutes to squeeze in a quick swim. I jogged the few street blocks to the local 25yd pool and hit the water running: Caveman’s Magic 30min swim set: - Warm up: 8 minute easy swimming, focussing on feeling the water and concentrating on good stroke. Once I start feeling good, I like to throw in some one arm swimming (other arm by the side) and maybe a 100 IM or 2- to get the heart rate up and get some more “feel” for the water. - Main set: 20 minutes of sprinting 25s. Sounds easy, but the trick is in the rest period: Only 3 breaths “rest.” Between the hard sprinting and short rests, pretty soon I’m at theshold. Its the best of both...

Racine_swimout To start off thank you to all of my friends and family who made the trip up to Racine to watch me race. I like when it is bring your friends and family to work day. Greatly appreciate all the support! The Spirit of Racine triathlon, this race I want to win in a bad way. I want to win it the way I wanted to win Chicago Triathlon for the half a decade that my sole focus was the Olympic distance. Now the focus of my career has changed and the goal shifted from Chicago Triathlon to Spirit of Racine, why, because they are home. I get to sleep in my own bed the night before the race. I have an unfair advantage of knowing how to ride the rough roads of the midwest. The conditions are what my body work best in. So coming to my house to race…just sounds like such a losing proposition… Race morning started early because I really couldn’t sleep, my mind and body were charged up for race day. On the drive up nothing on the radio could satisfy the hunger inside. I got to...

Racine 70.3

Monday 21 Jul 2014 Lsanderstri
Yesterday I raced the Racine 70.3. This race was going to be a very interesting experience because I raced Muncie 70.3 just seven days prior, and so was unsure how my body was going to react when asking it to perform at a high level twice in such a short period of time. In the week leading into the race I decided to take it easy just a little bit more than I did going into Muncie 70.3. At the very least I thought this would leave me feeling more rested for when I start my final preparations for the 70.3 World Championship on Wednesday July 23rd. As the week progressed I started to feel physically better than I did in the days leading into Muncie. I didn’t have any performance expectations going into the race, but I had a feeling that I would be able to produce something very similar to Muncie. I was fortunate enough to do this race with my mom and my friend Sadie, as well as have both my girlfriend and her parents there for support. Erin, Sadie, Chewy (my dog) and I started our journey...

Friday 25 Jul 2014 Pip Taylor
Photo: Shutterstock.comYou know the importance of staying hydrated—for optimal health and function as well as for sports performance and recovery. But chugging on a water bottle is not the only approach. The food you eat plays a considerable role in providing your body with its daily water requirements. In fact, many fruits and vegetables are up to 90 percent water. You still need to drink fluids to provide all the hydration your body requires, but many of the most hydrating foods also contain essential electrolytes and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and sodium, as well as vitamins and amino acids. Summer is the perfect time to explore some of the best foods to help you stay hydrated and feeling and performing well. Add these foods to your shopping list this summer.

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...

Picky Bars is Growing Up

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Jesse Thomas
When we started Picky Bars four years ago, there wasn’t a whole lot of “strategy” behind it. We didn’t put together a 10 slide presentation, dress up in business suits, and promise investors a 10x return. In fact, my biz school professors would be ashamed at our lack of market research and pro-formas. I don’t . . . → Read More: Picky Bars is Growing Up

Wednesday 23 Jul 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 8.53.27 PM I have SO much to celebrate this week! THANK YOU for all the positive response to Smashfest Queen’s launch of their new HC Tri Kit! I’m so grateful to have not only incredible sponsor support (my own kit!?!? someone pinch me!!), but all of the nice comments on twitter, Facebook, in person, and online, have been equally amazing. I am one lucky girl and I cannot WAIT to see all that green and yellow goodness on the road! It’s not too late to get your own, pre-order links are HERE. As if that isn’t enough, it’s my birthday!!! And what am I doing? I’m going to OHIO!!! I’ve somehow made it 29 whole years without a visit to the Buckeye State, but I’ll be fixing that this weekend when I toe the line at Challenge New Albany. The half Ironman distance race northeast of Columbus is sure to be a GREAT experience AND since pretty much every person I know from Ohio is completely awesome, I have high expectations for the whole trip! The gun goes off...
