Coach’s Note By Lance Watson: Top 5 Excuses Not To Tri

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
If you are an avid triathlete, you love to workout. You may be surprised to find not everyone shares your passion, enthusiasm and possible addiction. The fit triathlete knows the positive impacts of the triathlon lifestyle. Talk to the uninitiated, and you may hear some of common barriers to getting started. Even if they show interest, they may lack motivation or could simply be overwhelmed by the learning curve. As a coach, I hear many valid reasons and also many excuses. Here are my top five, and some handy solutions which you can share to overcome these: 5. “I don’t like to train; it’s hard and it hurts.” Most people enjoy what they are good at, and if they are way out of shape or unfamiliar with the skills required (such as swimming), all they can foresee is pain and/or inadequacy. Solution: Start slow, don’t push to discomfort and focus on fun. Or better yet, get distracted with music, create playful training games or exercise tasks, and engage in conversation while you are out...

Challenge Family Announces New Finland Race

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
After a handful of new race announcements in interesting locations, such as Venice, Aruba and Iceland, Challenge Family has again revealed a new race at a unique venue. Challenge Turku, taking place in the old capital of Finland, will take place on Aug. 13 and 14. Saturday will feature junior and short distance races, with Sunday hosting the Challenge Turku Half Distance race. The 1.2-mile swim is located at the river mouth, where the swim segment will be easily followed by spectators from the riverbanks. The river hosts many museum ships and swimming has been described like a tour in an open-air museum. The 56-mile bike segment will take the athletes across the city to the highway, where the race can also be followed from the many bridges crossing the route. The 13.1-mile run course takes place along the riverbanks through the city center before finishing in Varvintori Square, the epicenter of cultural and sporting events on the river front ”Joining Challenge Family is a great honor...

Swim health: Avoiding common issues

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockChlorine kills a lot of bad stuff, but frequent swim training can still pose some pesky health concerns. Don’t let one of these issues get in the way of your next swim session. Swimmer’s ear Water left lingering in your ear after swimming could lead to an infection in the outer canal. Prevent it: Swim with earplugs and rinse out ears with a product such as Swim-Ear that kills germs and evaporates water. Treat it: There are lots of quirky home remedies—from laying your head on a sock filled with salt to rinsing your ear with garlic oil—but the quickest relief is prescription drops from a doctor. Hair damage Pool chemicals can be harsh on your locks, making them more susceptible to breakage. Prevent it: Wet your hair before you get in the pool, and wear a swim cap. Your hair is less likely to absorb chlorine if it’s already wet. Treat it: Wash your hair post-swim with a shampoo/conditioner with chlorine-removal properties, such as UltraSwim or TriSwim. Swimming pool...

How Do I Tame My Hunger?

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
Q: I recently upped my triathlon training to 10–12 hours per week, and now I’m starving all the time. I eat three meals, plus snacks, including a snack before workouts. What can I do to tame my hunger? A: For some athletes, perpetual hunger can be attributed to an inadequate intake of overall calories, or missing meals or snacks, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for you. More likely in this case, your hunger can be traced back to an imbalance in macronutrient intake (carbs, protein, fats) versus needs. Do you think you might be eating fewer carbs, protein or fat than you need? If you keep track of everything you eat and drink for a few days, you just might be able to figure it out. After keeping your “food log,” review what you have eaten. You should see per day: – At least three servings of quality protein (lean meat, eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, or vegetarian bean/grain-based dishes) – 5–9 servings of “good fats” (avocado, nuts,...

Bike Fit Series: Aero / Power Balance

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: Kurt HoyContrary to popular bike fit myths, it is possible to achieve an aerodynamic bike setup without riding in an uncomfortably scrunched position. Bike fit specialist Aaron Ross shares advice straight from the Faster wind tunnel and fit studio in Scottsdale, Ariz., on how to save drag without compromising fit. Key 1: Start with a solid foundation. What we have found from testing many athletes is that a solid foundation from a good bike fit can make you more aero than new equipment—80 percent of your aerodynamic drag comes from you! But slamming your bars into the lowest possible position isn’t effective. You’ll find yourself unable to produce power and, more than likely, will be forced out of the aerobars, completely defeating any gains from the original position. Finding an aero position you can maintain begins with a bike fit. Once you find a position you can sustain for the length of your season’s “A” race, use these lessons learned from the wind tunnel to lose drag and...

How To Break Through A Running Plateau

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Try a new approach to your training to gain an edge in your next race. Looking to get from T2 to the finish a little quicker this year? Perhaps you’ve hit a plateau, or feel like there’s a missing ingredient in your run training. When manipulating the basic ingredients, or tenets of training—volume, frequency, intensity and duration—there are literally thousands of combinations you can utilize to change your approach. If your running is stuck in a rut, consider one of these approach tweaks to help you breakout this season. The Approach: High Frequency High frequency leads to increased durability, which makes you more resistant to injury and better able to hold pace and form at the end of the race. A triathlete only running a few times per week can reap benefits by gradually increasing to 5–6 runs. One benefit of upping the frequency of your runs is that it helps you build muscular endurance while allowing you to take some of the emphasis off of very long runs (like those 20-milers...

Ironman 70.3 Geelong - Race Report

Friday 08 Jan 2016
Picture photo by Delly Carr 1st. 4.14.28Swim. 27.06 (11th)Bike. 2.17.47 (1st)Run. 1.25.34 (3rd)To sum up my race today, I'd say almost everything that could go wrong did except crossing the finish line first! If my thoughts were vocal you'd have to cover your ears as my brain was throwing out some pretty explicit language, but looking back now I'm kinda strangely happy it all went down the way it did. You can't get better mental training than overcoming problems on race day. So this is how it all went down... The gun went off and I ran down to the water, dived in and started swinging my arms over... I got a good start. I was in a good position and with such a large field I was confident I'd find some feet to sit on. This is about as far as my good luck went until I crossed the finish line! The girls to my right started closing in on me and at the same time...

A Disheartening Experience

Wednesday 10 Feb 2016 Lsanderstri
I will preface this post by saying that I am not pointing fingers at anyone. I am presenting an experience that I had yesterday / this morning, and you can formulate your own opinion on the matter. I feel that this is an experience that needs to be shared publicly, specifically so that my fellow pros know that this sort of thing can happen. Monday February 8th 2016 I had a knock at the door at 6:05am. It was the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and they were ordered by WTC to conduct both a blood and urine test on me. They collected two purple vials of blood for the Blood Passport program. Everything went smoothly. The only slight hiccup was that the needle went through my vein and had to be backed out in order for the blood to start draining into the vial. The testers left my house at 6:55am. Yesterday evening (Tuesday February 9th) I checked my account on ADAMS Whereabouts. If you are not familiar, this is the system the World Anti Doping Agency uses to keep tabs on...

Challenge Rimini Half - 6th

Sunday 11 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
I just finished the Challenge Rimini Half here on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Italy. I raced the world junior duathlon champs here in 2001 and I was hoping to relive the magic from 13 years ago but I will have to settle for another 6th place finish after a tough closing 10km of the run where everything seemed to fall to pieces pretty badly. It may have been all the travel and crossing time zones but I felt great through to the half way point on the run so I am going to put it down to the epic crash I managed to get myself in at the 45km mark on the bike. The road rash on my arm was not too bad but it wasn't until after the race that I managed to assess the damage to my hip and there was some pretty good damage. It has been a great week here in Rimini and I have really enjoyed the change in pace. It seems Italy time is a lot like "island time" and when it comes to meals this place is off the chart. I love good food and there has been plenty of it the past few days, but I have...

Ironman 70.3 St. George - 6th

Sunday 04 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Ironman 70.3 St. George race in UTAH, it doubled up as the US Pro championships and was my first race of the Northern hemisphere season. Only being back into training the past 6 weeks from a small recovery period after Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ my goal going into the race was to test the body, see where the fitness was and test that against most of the best athletes in the world. All in all it was a very tough day but I am please to walk away after a solid race finishing in 6th Place. This was my first trip to UTAH and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect coming in, but the truth is St. George has such amazing scenery and very friendly people I will definitely be coming back and exploring the area a little more.The course has to be one of the toughest I have ever competed on, add to the course the stellar field and the slight altitude of the area it was sure to be a hard hard day at the office. My feel in the water has been good plus I had a brand...

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ - 3rd

Monday 03 Mar 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain New Zealand Ironman down in Taupo. It was a very tough day but I am pleased with my 3rd place finish behind Marko Albert and Cam Brown. It was also a great way to mark the end of my Pre Season base training and put to rest some monsters that have been hiding in my Ironman closet.Taupo put on a superb week with great weather leading into and on race day. I was happy with where my fitness was across all 3 disciplines and I was looking forward to testing the waters and seeing how far I had come since my last Ironman finish in 2011. Marko set a fast start to the 3.8km swim and soon a small group of us had a break. We quickly navigated through the waters to come out with a 2 minute lead over the chase pack which included Cam Brown.  Last years winner, Bevan Docherty along with several strong bikers made up the front group and I was sure we would work well together to slowly build our lead over the 180km, 2 lap bike course....

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Monday 23 Dec 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
Hi all,Just a quick note to wish you and your families all a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of festive seasons!I hope that we all finish off 2013 pleased with how things have gone and ready to keep moving forward after the haze settles in the new year. Timing of my off season was very unfortunate as I started back in heavy training last week, but thankfully my coach Jon Ackland has found it in his heart to give me a few easy days which I will be enjoying with my family between Waiheke Island and Auckland. Early in the New Year I will be racing the Auckland 70.3, this race also doubles as the Asia Pacific Pro Championships. Unfortunately due to the car door incident at the beginning of this year I was unable to be on the start line for the inaugural race but I am determined to make up for it. Then at the beginning of March I will be returning to Nutri-Grain Ironman New Zealand in Taupo. This will be the extent of my New Zealand racing for this season and I am looking...

Jan Frodeno has achieved almost everything in his unprecedented triathlon career. He won gold at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008, is the current Ironman Hawaii champion, "Sportsman of the Year" and Bambi award-winner. There are many more outstanding successes in the 34-year-old’s career but two milestones are still missing – victory at the world’s largest long distance triathlon and the world record. On 17 July 2016 he will attempt to achieve both goals when he lines up at DATEV CHALLENGE more

Coach’s Note By Lance Watson: Top 5 Excuses Not To Tri

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Triathlete.com
If you are an avid triathlete, you love to workout. You may be surprised to find not everyone shares your passion, enthusiasm and possible addiction. The fit triathlete knows the positive impacts of the triathlon lifestyle. Talk to the uninitiated, and you may hear some of common barriers to getting started. Even if they show interest, they may lack motivation or could simply be overwhelmed by the learning curve. As a coach, I hear many valid reasons and also many excuses. Here are my top five, and some handy solutions which you can share to overcome these: 5. “I don’t like to train; it’s hard and it hurts.” Most people enjoy what they are good at, and if they are way out of shape or unfamiliar with the skills required (such as swimming), all they can foresee is pain and/or inadequacy. Solution: Start slow, don’t push to discomfort and focus on fun. Or better yet, get distracted with music, create playful training games or exercise tasks, and engage in conversation while you are out...

Swim health: Avoiding common issues

Thursday 11 Feb 2016 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockChlorine kills a lot of bad stuff, but frequent swim training can still pose some pesky health concerns. Don’t let one of these issues get in the way of your next swim session. Swimmer’s ear Water left lingering in your ear after swimming could lead to an infection in the outer canal. Prevent it: Swim with earplugs and rinse out ears with a product such as Swim-Ear that kills germs and evaporates water. Treat it: There are lots of quirky home remedies—from laying your head on a sock filled with salt to rinsing your ear with garlic oil—but the quickest relief is prescription drops from a doctor. Hair damage Pool chemicals can be harsh on your locks, making them more susceptible to breakage. Prevent it: Wet your hair before you get in the pool, and wear a swim cap. Your hair is less likely to absorb chlorine if it’s already wet. Treat it: Wash your hair post-swim with a shampoo/conditioner with chlorine-removal properties, such as UltraSwim or TriSwim.

Ironman 70.3 Geelong - Race Report

Friday 08 Jan 2016
Picture photo by Delly Carr 1st. 4.14.28Swim. 27.06 (11th)Bike. 2.17.47 (1st)Run. 1.25.34 (3rd)To sum up my race today, I'd say almost everything that could go wrong did except crossing the finish line first! If my thoughts were vocal you'd have to cover your ears as my brain was throwing out some pretty explicit language, but looking back now I'm kinda strangely happy it all went down the way it did. You can't get better mental training than overcoming problems on race day. So this is how it all went down... The gun went off and I ran down to the water, dived in and started swinging my arms over... I got a good start. I was in a good position and with such a large field I was confident I'd find some feet to sit on. This is about as far as my good luck went until I crossed the finish line! The girls to my right started closing in on me and at the same time...

A Disheartening Experience

Wednesday 10 Feb 2016 Lsanderstri
I will preface this post by saying that I am not pointing fingers at anyone. I am presenting an experience that I had yesterday / this morning, and you can formulate your own opinion on the matter. I feel that this is an experience that needs to be shared publicly, specifically so that my fellow pros know that this sort of thing can happen. Monday February 8th 2016 I had a knock at the door at 6:05am. It was the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and they were ordered by WTC to conduct both a blood and urine test on me. They collected two purple vials of blood for the Blood Passport program. Everything went smoothly. The only slight hiccup was that the needle went through my vein and had to be backed out in order for the blood to start draining into the vial. The testers left my house at 6:55am. Yesterday evening (Tuesday February 9th) I checked my account on ADAMS Whereabouts. If you are not familiar, this is the system the World Anti Doping Agency uses to keep tabs on...

Challenge Rimini Half - 6th

Sunday 11 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
I just finished the Challenge Rimini Half here on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Italy. I raced the world junior duathlon champs here in 2001 and I was hoping to relive the magic from 13 years ago but I will have to settle for another 6th place finish after a tough closing 10km of the run where everything seemed to fall to pieces pretty badly. It may have been all the travel and crossing time zones but I felt great through to the half way point on the run so I am going to put it down to the epic crash I managed to get myself in at the 45km mark on the bike. The road rash on my arm was not too bad but it wasn't until after the race that I managed to assess the damage to my hip and there was some pretty good damage. It has been a great week here in Rimini and I have really enjoyed the change in pace. It seems Italy time is a lot like "island time" and when it comes to meals this place is off the chart. I love good food and there has been plenty of it the past few days, but I have...

Ironman 70.3 St. George - 6th

Sunday 04 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Ironman 70.3 St. George race in UTAH, it doubled up as the US Pro championships and was my first race of the Northern hemisphere season. Only being back into training the past 6 weeks from a small recovery period after Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ my goal going into the race was to test the body, see where the fitness was and test that against most of the best athletes in the world. All in all it was a very tough day but I am please to walk away after a solid race finishing in 6th Place. This was my first trip to UTAH and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect coming in, but the truth is St. George has such amazing scenery and very friendly people I will definitely be coming back and exploring the area a little more.The course has to be one of the toughest I have ever competed on, add to the course the stellar field and the slight altitude of the area it was sure to be a hard hard day at the office. My feel in the water has been good plus I had a brand...

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ - 3rd

Monday 03 Mar 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain New Zealand Ironman down in Taupo. It was a very tough day but I am pleased with my 3rd place finish behind Marko Albert and Cam Brown. It was also a great way to mark the end of my Pre Season base training and put to rest some monsters that have been hiding in my Ironman closet.Taupo put on a superb week with great weather leading into and on race day. I was happy with where my fitness was across all 3 disciplines and I was looking forward to testing the waters and seeing how far I had come since my last Ironman finish in 2011. Marko set a fast start to the 3.8km swim and soon a small group of us had a break. We quickly navigated through the waters to come out with a 2 minute lead over the chase pack which included Cam Brown.  Last years winner, Bevan Docherty along with several strong bikers made up the front group and I was sure we would work well together to slowly build our lead over the 180km, 2 lap bike course....
