Triathlon Training Tips

23 Jul , 2017  

riptide singapore
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.

IRONMAN Philippines 2018 in Subic Bay

28 Jun , 2017  

Century Tuna IRONMAN Subic Bay, Philippines is the newest race to be added to the growing Philippine triathlon scene.
About Subic Bay, Philippines

About Subic Bay, Philippines
Bounded on three sides by a mountain range, and endowed with a deep natural harbor, Subic Bay was once the home base of the U.S. naval forces in the Pacific. It was America’s largest naval installation outside the United States, until it was turned over to the Philippine government in 1992.
All that sand and sea have not gone to waste, as Subic Bay is now a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world. They come for its pristine beaches, first-rate amenities and friendly services. In fact the waters and beaches of Subic Bay feature attractions for all types of folks: miles of fine sand and calm waters for beach lovers and picnickers, spectacular corals and underwater fauna for divers and snorkelers, mysterious sunken wrecks for history aficionados, and even choice spots for a relaxing afternoon of fly fishing.
But there’s more to Subic Bay than sun-drenched shores. Its blessed location at the foothills of the Zambales mountain range has given it lush tracts of preserved tropical forest, which have become favorite venues for eco-tourism activities and sports events. U.S. Marines used to hone their jungle-survival skills in these mountains, trained by local indigenous people called the Aetas who have learned to live in harmony with their natural environmen

Event Experience
The inaugural Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will aim to build upon the successes of the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay and provide athletes with a challenging, yet beautiful course to tackle. Athletes will begin their IRONMAN journey with a one-loop, 3.8km ocean swim in the calm, pristine waters of Triboa Bay, starting and finishing at ACEA Resort which will also play host to the first of the split transition areas. Once onto their bikes, athletes will head out of Subic Bay and onto the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) for a fast and flat two-loop, 180km ride which will bring riders back into the T2 at Remy Field in downtown Subic Bay. The 42.2km, two-loop marathon run will take in some of the best coastal views that the area has to offer and will be a buzz of energy with local supporters lining the streets to cheer the athletes home.

IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand

26 Oct , 2016  

Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 returns to Phuket on November 27, 2016

To all Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand  & IRONKIDS Thailand Participants

We are pleased to advise that we will be proceeding with our inaugural Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand and Foremost IRONKIDS after due consideration of the recent events in Thailand and the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. We at Sunrise Events and IRONMAN are very mindful and respectful of the mourning period and the Thai culture.

The direction of the Phuket Government is for all sporting events to continue yet duly mindful of the yearlong mourning period. This is aligned with the National Government’s position to continue sports and  tourism activities with certain restrictions.

As such we will have to realize certain aspects of our events may be considerably subdued during this period, particularly with respect to celebration.  Participants may also be asked to wear black armbands as a matter of respect.

Though there will be some adjustments in light of the circumstances, we believe this event will still very much be a world-class event.

We look forward to seeing you in Phuket in just over a month.

About Phuket, Thailand

Phuket, one of the world’s premier holiday destinations, is famous for its crystal clear waters, pristine white beaches and stunning natural scenery – as well as its variety of attractions and entertainment. Friendly smiles and compassionate nature of its people, combined with the majestic beauty of its island and surroundings, with the added bonus of luxury hotels and resorts, will make Phuket, Thailand the next IRONMAN target destination.

Event Experience

With a new and exciting course we would like to invite local and international participants to 2016 Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand. The race venue remains the same at Bangtao Phuket, the same grounds of the first triathlon in Asia more then 20 years ago. Start, finish and awards party will all be in one place at Bangtao beach.

Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand will also offer a team relay, a great opportunity for first timers to get a taste for an IRONMAN race.

2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Official Qualifier SealIRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Qualifying Race

Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand will offer a $15,000 USD professional prize purse and 30 qualifying age group slots for the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

XTERRA DANAO, Cebu. April 23, 2017

25 Oct , 2016  

XTERRA Danao, Cebu

XTERRA Danao, Cebu

DANAO City will be hosting next year’s Xterra Off-road Triathlon, Sunrise Events Inc. (SEI), the race’s organizer, announced today.
Princess Galura, general manager of SEI, met with Cebu’s Fifth District Representative Ramon “Red” Durano VI earlier today along with Cebu Provincial Administrator Mark Tolentino and Cebu Provincial Sports Commission vice chairman Miguel Magpale where they discussed the city’s hosting of the race.
The race is returning to Cebu for the fist time since Liloan hosted the event in 2014.

Liloan had actually hosted the event for four years.
Albay hosted the event in 2015 and 2016. The province actually signed a three-year contract with SEI but decided to discontinue hosting the race for the third straight time.
The race is scheduled on April 14 next year. Registration will start on October 26.
Durano VI and Tolentino are excited about the city’s hosting. SDanao has urged the SEI to discover other towns and cities in Cebu that can be a potential venue for a triathlon race, according to Galura.
The race features a 1.5-kilometer swim, 35k off-road bike course and 10k trail run.
Danao is also bidding to host an international mountain bike competition and the Palarong Pambansa next year.
