Triathlon Training Tips

23 Jul , 2017

1. Train alone

When I first started my career in triathlon, I got to a certain level by training with my buddies, in groups and non-structured environments. I then left for a while and came back with a whole new attitude. I found a coach I liked and really appreciated his ideas. So I committed myself to the training. I rarely trained with people. Eighty-five to 90 percent of the training I did alone, which worked for me. So if I were climbing a hill and my heart rate spiked, I’d walk up the hill. This created self-confidence. I came out and won my first race by training alone, which was Wildflower, a tough course.

2. Do drills

People neglect cycling and running drills. I did them. So on race day I would lose as little fitness as possible. I could be more efficient, not really falling apart halfway through the marathon because of the training drills. The reality is you should be doing drills all the time, year in and year out. I was different than a lot of pros by doing that.

3. Train for a race

Don’t train for general fitness. I think I was one of the first to train on the Big Island. I trained in the heat and learned the currents of the water. When I did Wildflower, I’d incorporate rides and runs similar to that course. I found out the course had lots of trails and hills, so I thought, okay, I need to run hills and train specific to that course.

4. Put yourself in pain

This one is kind of sadistic. I always had this problem of my stomach shutting down during the marathon of an Ironman. So I thought if I could run with my stomach shutting down, I could do it in a race. So once a week I would sit down and eat nachos with really spicy hot sauce. Then I’d get my running gear on, go for a run and of course, my stomach would shut down, but I’d just keep going. They were brutal training runs. But then on race day, when my stomach would shut down I’d think, “I can deal with this.” I’d be able to keep going. Doing this paid off so many times over. I’d do this 10 weeks out from Ironman until two weeks before race day. It’d be a horrible run, but it had a huge impact on my overall race performance.

5. Spend the dough

I see this with a lot of age-groupers. They spend so much time and effort training for an Ironman and they don’t bother to get new tires or get a tune-up. Get new tires. Get a new chain if you need it. You’ve invested so much time, just pay the couple of extra bucks. Don’t cheap out. It’s worth the extra expense.

6. Get out of shape

I got this piece of advice from Paula Newby-Fraser and it was one of the best things I have heard. She told me, “Peter, you can have a great short career or you can have a great long career. But you need to take time to leave the sport behind you.” Basically, you need to get out of shape to get back into shape. You need to physically and mentally recharge. You need to become a non-athlete. Don’t eat healthy. It hurts your fitness, sure, but it makes for a better long-term career. Mark Allen did this and it worked for him. Doing this prepares your body for another season. It was so easy for me to do this because two legends told me they did it. It felt like a part of the puzzle of being pro.

7. Don’t workout when sick

I see so many athletes tinker with their workouts when they are sick. Don’t. Take the day off.

8. Know your body

If you head out the door and your knee hurts, don’t push through it because then all of a sudden you’re injured and you are out. Stop exercising and take a couple of days off rather than be out a couple of weeks.

Cervélo’s P5X Is Ready To Crush The Resistance

5 Oct , 2016

Cervélo P5X
The P5X is a radical departure from anything Cervélo has designed in the past and took three years to develop. The ultimate goal of this bike is to meet the specific needs of triathletes by offering an abundance of storage with an easy to adjust frame, making it arguably the most user-friendly superbike available. While the practicality of this bike is commendable, the price will put it out of reach for the vast majority of interested triathletes. The bike comes in two builds: the Shimano Ultegra Di2 option has an MSRP of $11,000 and the SRAM eTap model (pictured) has an MSRP of $15,000.

Cervélo partnered with travel case manufacturer Biknd to create a custom case for the P5X. The case has internal airbags, can store two sets of wheels and requires minimal disassembly. MSRP is $850.

Cervélo designed the P5X around disc brakes for two main reasons: they could make the frame more aerodynamic and give the bike better stopping power. 160mm front and rear rotors give the P5X plenty of stopping power and 12mm thru axles increase stiffness.

Cervélo partnered with ENVE to design the super clean front end of the bike. The base bar can be flipped up or down, but the bigger story is that this is actually a two-piece component that folds in half to make the bike easier to pack.

The Speedcase is a clever storage addition to the frame that attaches to the downtube. Bottle mounts on top of the Speedcase add versatility and a level of customization to the bike. You could potentially choose to race with the Speedcase and a bottle for an Ironman, Speedcase and no no bottle for a half, or no Speedcase for an Olympic or sprint.

Unlike the Speedcase, the Stealthbox storage compartment is built into the frame. This is likely where you’d store flat repair items like spare tubes and tire levers.

News: Schwalbe presents the final Procore-System for 2015

28 Aug , 2014  

Massive grip and high protection against punctures. – This is what Schwalbe promises. The Schwalbe Procore system proved itself able to handle the pressure on the race cicuit over the last couple of weeks. Nico Lau won the Enduro World Series races in Scotland and Sam Hill, the last Downhill Worldcup in Meribel, both riding procore.

There have been rumors about the new Schwalbe Procore system. But it is already clear that the system carries two air chambers. One evening after demo-day, Schwalbe revealed the new system, and it was immediately obvious they had made some new clever changes. Initially prototype versions had two valves, requiring modification to the rims, but Shwalbe presented the system with just one valve. Additionally, there have been some changes to their range of tyres too.
