Emma-Kate Lidbury, Refuel, rest, recover, repeat…

Wednesday 27 Aug 2014 [Triathlon News]

For many triathletes, learning to rest and recover is actually harder than working out. Triathlon tends to attract “Type A” personalities who typically want to do it all, do it perfectly and do it yesterday – but that’s not always the best route forward for the human body to get fitter, faster and stronger. more

Now walk towards a river…pick up a leaf…place your thought on the leaf….watch it float down the stream…let it go…let it drift away. Those were the words of a psychologist who I recently had some interactions with. She was helping me with mindfulness mediation. Mindfulness isn’t always easy. In this instance, her cue words didn’t quite resonate with me (maybe I’m too cynical) ..…in fact the little voice in my head blurted out, “the current is too strong for my thoughts to float down the river.’’ more

Can You Be Too Much Of A Triathlon Perfectionist?

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Mimi Winsberg
Photo: Janos Schmidt/Triathlon.org Perfectionists have many positive qualities that transfer well to triathlon—they set very high standards, strive for excellence and pay close attention to detail. But as athletes, they are often too hard on themselves. Psychologists have argued that perfectionists can be divided into two groups: those who use their perfectionism adaptively, and those who become self-defeating in their quest for the ideal. Top athletes will prepare rigorously and exhibit attention to detail prior to competition. But come race day, letting go of preconceived notions of success can be helpful. Competition requires embracing uncertainty and taking some risk, and in order to win, we must be willing to lose. Researchers have outlined the difference in strategy among athletes who are playing to win versus those who are playing not to lose. When athletes are racing to win or to achieve a personal best, they exhibit an intensification of effort and a willingness to take risks,...

Photo: Delly Carr/Triathlon.orgThis weekend, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, will host the always exciting ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final, the last event in the extremely competitive eight-race series. The draft-legal format features the speediest short-course athletes in the world battling it out on a multi-loop course in Hawrelak Park for the world champion title. Athletes have accumulated points throughout the season, and the ITU world champion will be determined based on an athlete’s five best finishes. The world championships format changed to a multi-race series from a single-day championship in 2009, so the winner of the Grand Final this weekend won’t necessarily be the world champion.

Treating And Preventing Painful Hernias

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Jordan D. Metzl, M.D.
Photo: iStockA strong core is the best prevention for a painful hernia. The Symptoms Pain in the lower abdomen (a general hernia) or groin (a sportsman’s hernia) that worsens with coughing or sneezing. Sometimes pain that appears to be muscular persists for months and turns out to be from a hernia. What’s Going On In There? A hernia is a tear or weakness
 in the abdominal wall that allows the intestines or another organ 
to get pinched in the gap or push outside the abdomen, usually (but not always) causing pain. A general hernia is usually located in the lower abdomen at hip level. The most common kind of hernia, the inguinal hernia, involves the inguinal canal, which runs through the front wall
 of the abdomen and channels blood and lymph vessels, nerves, the spermatic cord in men, and the round ligament in women from inside the body to closer to the surface. Sections of the intestine or other abdominal organs can poke through at various places along the abdominal wall at the...

Pro Advice: Top Four Tips

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Julia Polloreno
Photo: Rocky Arroyo/EndurapixWe had a front row seat inside the CLIF Bar & Company Theatre for a Q&A session with some of the sport’s top pros, including Ironman champions Linsey Corbin, Ben Hoffman, Terenzo Bozzone and Timothy O’Donnell. All of the athletes were asked to share their best triathlon tip. Here’s what they had to say: Terenzo Bozzone Practice transitions. Go for a short swim, jump on the bike and go for a run. You can do that several times in a session—usually I would do it on a Saturday morning. It’s a pain in the butt to get back into your wet wetsuit, but I strongly recommend doing it and visualizing how you get through transition fast. And do it over and over again until it’s ingrained and becomes second nature. Ben Hoffman Something will probably go wrong according to your plan. Put that behind you and think about the best decision you could make in that moment moving forward. It seems basic, and it is, but it’s one of the most helpful things you can do...

Strong Pro Field To Race Hy-Vee Elite Cup

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Bethany Mavis
Photo: Paul Phillips/Competitive Image/@CompimagephotoThe start list for the Hy-Vee 5150 U.S. Championship Elite Cup has been released, and it features some speedy short- and long-course stars. The pros will be competing for their share of a $500,000 pro prize purse, the largest in Olympic-distance racing, this Sunday, Aug. 31 in Des Moines, Iowa. The race pays 30 deep, with $100,000 going to first place and $500 going to 30th place. With 30 men and 30 women on the start list, that means every finisher will go home with some prize money. Men’s Race The start list isn’t as deep as in previous years because the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final is taking place the same weekend in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which means Spain’s Javier Gomez won’t be returning to defend his title. Topping the men’s list is Swiss ITU athlete Ruedi Wild, who has excelled at non-drafting races this season with victories at St. Anthony’s and 5150 Zurich, and podium finishes at three half-Ironman...

Sorry for delay Challenge Roth race report

Friday 09 Aug 2013 Steffencaroline
“Ich bin mit meinem Schwimmen nicht ganz zufrieden. Ich hatte gehofft, hier unter 50 Minuten schwimmen zu können, weil ich wusste, dass es ein schneller Kurs ist. Ich weiß nicht genau was nach dem Start passiert ist. Ich habe die Gruppe verloren, in der ich eigentlich schwimmen wollte. So bin ich mit Julia aus dem Wasser gestiegen. Darüber war ich im Gegensatz zu ihr nicht wirklich glücklich. Aber mir war auch klar, dass zu diesem Zeitpunkt gerade einmal 50 Minuten des Rennen vorbei waren und noch einige Stunden vor mir lagen. Also habe ich mich aufs Radfahren konzentriert. Auf den ersten 40 Kilometer habe ich mich mich schrecklich gefühlt. Meine Beine haben nicht das gemacht, was sie machen sollten. In der zweiten Runde habe ich mich dann besser gefühlt. Leider war die Gruppe, in der ich saß ein bisschen zu langsam, so dass ich zwei Optionen hatte: mich in Stücke zu reißen, damit eine oder zwei Minuten herauszufahren und den Marathon zu Fuß zu gehen oder in der Gruppe zu...

May @Leysin – camp in the Swiss mountains

Friday 07 Jun 2013 Steffencaroline
Ist 4 weeks now since I`m back in Leysin to spend the European summer with teamTBB and coach Brett. Training going well and all the hill work already pays off. Its my 4th camp in the Swiss mountains and I still love it like the first time. The view up here is breathtaking (even for a Swiss girl) and the ride/run just cant get any better. I dont know how many time in the last 4 years I did “the loop” but I never get bored of it and if I do, I just go around the counterclockwise. May 2013 was a bit of a nasty,wet and cold month incl. of 36 hours of not stop snowing … which gave coach nearly a breakdown at he pool one morning. No springtime in Switzerland this year, just snow all may and the cows which try to find some green didn`t looked very happy either. I know my muscles and also maybe my attitude doasn`t have a very good relationship with this conditions but what can I do, I`ve to get out there and give it a go.

IM Melbourne – Gescheiterte Titelverteidigung

Thursday 28 Mar 2013 Steffencaroline
Etwas enttäuscht und trotzdem irgendwie glücklich es doch noch ins Ziel geschafft zu haben, lief ich letzten Sonntag als 3e am IRONMAN Melbourne ins Ziel. Titelverteidigung misslungen – doch alles gegeben. Mit einer kleine Erkältung in der Woche davor war meine Vorbereitung nicht optimal doch ich wollte es trotzdem versuchen und mein Bestes geben. Da lief einfach gar nichts. Ich hatte schon auf dem Rad mühe mein Rennen/ Rhythmus zu finden, die Beine wollten nicht so recht, keinen Druck keine Kraft. Musste deutlich mehr Nahrung zu mir nehmen weil ich mehrere Male in einen Hungerast fiel. Doch ich wusste ich musste es irgendwie ins Ziel schaffen um meinen Start in Kona zu sichern. Ich versuchte mich auf dem Rad durch zu kämpfen und hoffte auch einen etwas besseren Marathon Lauf. Die ersten 20km liefen dann auch erstaunlich rund. Ich fasste wieder etwas Mut und versuchte locker und fokussiert zu bleiben, so kann ich es ev ja sogar in die Top 3 noch schaffen. Dann km 25, schon...

Once more back in the desert of Abu Dhabi

Friday 08 Mar 2013 Steffencaroline
For the 4th time I returned to the Arabian desert to start at the unique Abu Dhabi Triathlon and for the 4th time I finishd in the top4 …and missed out again at the big win but thats ok. I know this race made me strong and get me ready for the big one in Melbourne in 3 weeks time. After the 3km swim I found myself in the leading group, after a quick T1 I took the lead and started a very lonely 200km journey on my P5. My plan was to ride a negative split (moderate-medium-mad) over this 5h which means I can use the race to improve my bike skills without tire me out too much. Of course It means also I took the risk of getting cached in the first 100 km but I didn’t really care. A very strong Melissa Rollison (AUS) road up to me after about 1,5h, we made one turn and I was back in the lead for the last hour. Back in T2 I managed to road a little gap into Mel but unfortunately it wasn’t enough time to grab the win. Marked by wind and heat I finished my 4th...

Early start in 2013 – IRONMAN 70.3 Auckland

Thursday 24 Jan 2013 Steffencaroline
Last weekend I started my season 2013 with the unique Ironman 70.3 in Auckland NZ. Maybe a little bit earlier than originally planned but how can I resist, you dont get the chance every day to ride across the famous “Auckland Harbour Bridge” with you bike. I truly like to say, to organize this race in middle of Auckland City is just a remarkable effort of the organisers. Like to thank you for all your help and support before, during and after the race. Racestart at 6.30 at the Auckland Harbour: catched a great start, swam in a group of 4 together with Bella, Liz and Meredith before I had to let them go. I leave the water 1min15 back in 4th position, made my way pertty quick through T1 and start my mission on the bike towards the front. I passed Meredith on the Harbour Bridge and Liz few km later. I said: “ok, now there is Bella at the front. I know the former ITU champ can ride a bike but how fast can she ride 90km?” I worked hard and never had a doubt I...

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Mimi Winsberg
Photo: Janos Schmidt/Triathlon.org Perfectionists have many positive qualities that transfer well to triathlon—they set very high standards, strive for excellence and pay close attention to detail. But as athletes, they are often too hard on themselves. Psychologists have argued that perfectionists can be divided into two groups: those who use their perfectionism adaptively, and those who become self-defeating in their quest for the ideal. Top athletes will prepare rigorously and exhibit attention to detail prior to competition. But come race day, letting go of preconceived notions of success can be helpful. Competition requires embracing uncertainty and taking some risk, and in order to win, we must be willing to lose. Researchers have outlined the difference in strategy among athletes who are playing to win versus those who are playing not to lose. When athletes are racing to win or to achieve a personal best, they exhibit an intensification of effort and a willingness to take risks,...

Photo: Delly Carr/Triathlon.orgThis weekend, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, will host the always exciting ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final, the last event in the extremely competitive eight-race series. The draft-legal format features the speediest short-course athletes in the world battling it out on a multi-loop course in Hawrelak Park for the world champion title. Athletes have accumulated points throughout the season, and the ITU world champion will be determined based on an athlete’s five best finishes. The world championships format changed to a multi-race series from a single-day championship in 2009, so the winner of the Grand Final this weekend won’t necessarily be the world champion.

Treating And Preventing Painful Hernias

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Jordan D. Metzl, M.D.
Photo: iStockA strong core is the best prevention for a painful hernia. The Symptoms Pain in the lower abdomen (a general hernia) or groin (a sportsman’s hernia) that worsens with coughing or sneezing. Sometimes pain that appears to be muscular persists for months and turns out to be from a hernia. What’s Going On In There? A hernia is a tear or weakness
 in the abdominal wall that allows the intestines or another organ 
to get pinched in the gap or push outside the abdomen, usually (but not always) causing pain. A general hernia is usually located in the lower abdomen at hip level. The most common kind of hernia, the inguinal hernia, involves the inguinal canal, which runs through the front wall
 of the abdomen and channels blood and lymph vessels, nerves, the spermatic cord in men, and the round ligament in women from inside the body to closer to the surface. Sections of the intestine or other abdominal organs can poke through at various places along the abdominal wall at the...

Caveman wins XTERRA UK and 50th XTERRA Championship title

Conrad Stoltz Caveman XTERRA UK 2014 Braap Specialized Sworks Epic 29er Squirt lube SupaCaz LOOK Quartz Suunto Hoka Oakley radar XL Evade Stage power Braaap! I havent had this much fun doing my job in a long long time. After being frustrated by many of the “ho hum” courses lately, the UK course was fantastic! “Semi retired” XTERRA Pros Sam Gardner and Richard Stannard personally built the trails and did an incredible job. The trails were easy (and safe) enough for everyone to ride, but going fast is tricky. Vachery Estate in Surrey, is famous for the scenic  British country side. We home stayed with cycling legend Carl Hutchings and Terry. This was basically the view from our bedroom window.       We made the most of the “Bahamas like weather” this British summer (note #PrincessHotstuff’s summer wear) and visited a nearby town and tried warm beer. (only twice- the 2nd time to make sure its really really supposed to be warm) #Caveman EPO.* This is the stastiest beetroot juice we’ve ever had. (90% Beetroot juice and 10% Apple juice) *Beetroot juice is proven to boost...

Sorry for delay Challenge Roth race report

Friday 09 Aug 2013 Steffencaroline
“Ich bin mit meinem Schwimmen nicht ganz zufrieden. Ich hatte gehofft, hier unter 50 Minuten schwimmen zu können, weil ich wusste, dass es ein schneller Kurs ist. Ich weiß nicht genau was nach dem Start passiert ist. Ich habe die Gruppe verloren, in der ich eigentlich schwimmen wollte. So bin ich mit Julia aus dem Wasser gestiegen. Darüber war ich im Gegensatz zu ihr nicht wirklich glücklich. Aber mir war auch klar, dass zu diesem Zeitpunkt gerade einmal 50 Minuten des Rennen vorbei waren und noch einige Stunden vor mir lagen. Also habe ich mich aufs Radfahren konzentriert. Auf den ersten 40 Kilometer habe ich mich mich schrecklich gefühlt. Meine Beine haben nicht das gemacht, was sie machen sollten. In der zweiten Runde habe ich mich dann besser gefühlt. Leider war die Gruppe, in der ich saß ein bisschen zu langsam, so dass ich zwei Optionen hatte: mich in Stücke zu reißen, damit eine oder zwei Minuten herauszufahren und den Marathon zu Fuß zu gehen oder in der Gruppe zu...

May @Leysin – camp in the Swiss mountains

Friday 07 Jun 2013 Steffencaroline
Ist 4 weeks now since I`m back in Leysin to spend the European summer with teamTBB and coach Brett. Training going well and all the hill work already pays off. Its my 4th camp in the Swiss mountains and I still love it like the first time. The view up here is breathtaking (even for a Swiss girl) and the ride/run just cant get any better. I dont know how many time in the last 4 years I did “the loop” but I never get bored of it and if I do, I just go around the counterclockwise. May 2013 was a bit of a nasty,wet and cold month incl. of 36 hours of not stop snowing … which gave coach nearly a breakdown at he pool one morning. No springtime in Switzerland this year, just snow all may and the cows which try to find some green didn`t looked very happy either. I know my muscles and also maybe my attitude doasn`t have a very good relationship with this conditions but what can I do, I`ve to get out there and give it a go. One Morning I had to run a marathon and it was...

IM Melbourne – Gescheiterte Titelverteidigung

Thursday 28 Mar 2013 Steffencaroline
Etwas enttäuscht und trotzdem irgendwie glücklich es doch noch ins Ziel geschafft zu haben, lief ich letzten Sonntag als 3e am IRONMAN Melbourne ins Ziel. Titelverteidigung misslungen – doch alles gegeben. Mit einer kleine Erkältung in der Woche davor war meine Vorbereitung nicht optimal doch ich wollte es trotzdem versuchen und mein Bestes geben. Da lief einfach gar nichts. Ich hatte schon auf dem Rad mühe mein Rennen/ Rhythmus zu finden, die Beine wollten nicht so recht, keinen Druck keine Kraft. Musste deutlich mehr Nahrung zu mir nehmen weil ich mehrere Male in einen Hungerast fiel. Doch ich wusste ich musste es irgendwie ins Ziel schaffen um meinen Start in Kona zu sichern. Ich versuchte mich auf dem Rad durch zu kämpfen und hoffte auch einen etwas besseren Marathon Lauf. Die ersten 20km liefen dann auch erstaunlich rund. Ich fasste wieder etwas Mut und versuchte locker und fokussiert zu bleiben, so kann ich es ev ja sogar in die Top 3 noch schaffen. Dann km 25, schon...
