When to Run Twice a Day...

You’ve probably done plenty of double workouts—swim in the morning, run later in the day—depending on your experience in the sport. Although there’s no substitute for an all-at-once long workout because of the race-specific stimulus it provides, there may be a few reasons to do a single-sport double workout, especially with running. Some USAT coaches weigh in on when and why they use this two-a-day technique.

If you’re new to longer distances:


Swimmers start doing double workouts to build volume starting at a very young age. “Two-a-days are in my regular bag of tricks, especially when I am building someone up for longer distance...

A Friday Story for you all,

It is a testament to the benefits and importance of keeping in shape and good health.

In a nutshell this story is from a neat guy I met at the Broadband Communities Conference in Chicago last November.  So over dinner one night (being he is from Bolder) I mentioned that there are a lot of professional triathletes that live there.  He said his wife does triathlons also – and did the Lake Tahoe Ironman event.  Fast forward to next BBC conference in Austin Texas 2 weeks ago….  He could not wait to catch up with me and tell me the story of his wife.....

Getting Her Race On

nicole-transition-2After last years race season, a cold winter and several weeks of set-backs, I have been eager to race again. Planning a vacation to visit family, relax and enjoy nice weather seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. Flights were booked and registration for the Lifetime Tri Marquee-International distance was complete. Compared to racing last year, I had a different mindset going into this race. I knew the circumstances would be different and therefore, I decided to use this race as a chance to get back in race mode before the MN multisport season begins, while experimenting with nutrition, fueling and gear. Yes I know you shouldn't do anything new on race day but I took the risk and did it anyways. If anything failed I knew it would be worth the experience and my plan was to have fun regardless. I figured if lessons were to be learned (which several were), now would be the time to learn them! :).....
