  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe Hi Everyone only 31 days left !!!! Where did that time go? E-Dad Sue says Hi and she's got it covered !! whatever that means...Anyway, good weekend? I did a ride to an openwater swim on Saturday but the water was so cold(11 deg celcius) that I only did 1K before my asthma started and I had to get out. Sunday I managed a 6 mile run with no pain so on the upswing with that...What did you get up to?

  • yellowcake The GFT Tribe I'm starting to feel like I can really do this Ironman thing. I had a Half Iron this past Sunday to test my Ironman paces and placed 2nd in my Age Group with a PR (6:25)! I was super worried about my bike pace, and this course was fairly flat, but I managed a 17mph pace, so I'm stoked. I intentionally held back on the run for the first half (to practice Ironman Pace) and then slowly picked up the pace and finished strong! Great Day. I have a big weekend (3.5 hr run on Saturday and 6.5 hour bike on Sunday), then next week I leave for a 2 week cycling vacation in Italy. I hope to continue the bike and run training while on vacation (swim will be tough to do, but I hope to find somewhere to swim a couple times at least). Here's hoping my vacation does not unravel all my training for GFT.

  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe Hi E-Dad, im doing ok apart from a recurrent calf issue that is causing me run problems. Im hoping to have it sorted by this weekend so back on trac with that. Did a 200k bike ride on Sunday with a group of local pro bikies..ended up doing the last 50k in under an hour team time trial style.. The thing is i was hanging on for dear life over the mountains in the middle of the ride...but when we hit the flats and rollers on the way back my tri-bike showed its true worth..I didnt do my transition run cause of the calf thing but I think itll come together on the day how about you?

    • EnduradadI have not been on my bike for a couple weeks. I'm working a lot of overtime. I've put a lot of running miles in and should be back on bike Friday.
      Overall I'm happy with where I'm at.
      My goal is to finish, and then cheer for the last finsiher (which maybe me).
      Back in 2001 I had my PR and placed 5th A.G.
      Now I know I'm older and slower so I just have fun.
      Looking forward to meeting you and your family.

  • KAR The GFT Tribe I had planned on quietly slipping away from the forum, hoping to go unnoticed, but that just wouldn't be the right thing to do. We've been talking back and forth on this forum for quite awhile. I have finally come to terms with this, but after 12 years of IM training and racing, it's time for me to take a break. I just can't get my head and heart into it this year. I have posted earlier where I was having trouble getting motivated, but hoping to shake it off. I believe last years devastating illness during taper has also played into it. The best that can happen is, I'll take this year off, and come back next year, motivated and hungry.. I have a Miami Man (half Iron Tri-) on Nov. 11, so that has become my "A" race, and training has been reconfigured around it...So, my schedule for the remainder is: Sprint tri Oct. 14, Half IM in Miami Nov. 11, Thanksgiving Day 5k somewhere, Weston Half marathon in Dec., Parkland 5miler, also in Dec. and Miramar/Pines 10k in Jan. And so on...I have also started signing up for tri's for next year... In the mean time, I'll stay on this forum, and post if I think I may have some useful info, or be of help to someone... Train safe everyone!!

    • EnduradadI know what you're saying. I remember how fun it was to have the adventure of the first few IM races.
      Do keep in touch.

    • Spirit of 1989Hey KAR-Im really sorry to hear that.I was really looking forward to seeing you at GFT. I Know how hard it can be and a rest from Ironman competition is always good for your head. Ive had six years off so dont leave it that long eh? Look after yourself

IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Returns to the U.S. In 2017
5/26/2015 3:40:47 PM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

Chattanooga, Tennessee, Lake Placid, New York, and St. George, Utah Named as Finalists

im703worldchamppromo580.jpg

IRONMAN today announced that the 2017 IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship triathlon will be held in the United States. Three cities, all of which currently host IRONMAN® or IRONMAN® 70.3® races, have been named as the finalists in the selection process - Chattanooga (Tennessee), Lake Placid (New York) and St. George (Utah). In addition, the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will be a two-day event - with the professional women and age group women racing on one day and the professional men and age group men racing on the other.

"With the global explosion of IRONMAN 70.3 races, we expect approximately 4,500 athletes from around the world to qualify for the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, which is too many for a single day of racing," said Andrew Messick, Chief Executive Officer of IRONMAN. "We are focused on providing more opportunities for women to race with us globally and, after consulting with members of our Women For Tri Board, felt that having a separate race for female professional and age group athletes would be a strong step forward for our sport."

The IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship began an annual global rotation in 2014 in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. This August, the prestigious event will be held in Europe for the first time - in Zell am See-Kaprun, SalzburgerLand, Austria. The 2016 race shifts to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time - in Queensland, Australia's Sunshine Coast. Domestic and international competitors will earn the right to compete in the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship by qualifying at nearly 90 IRONMAN 70.3 events around the world beginning in July 2016.

"The rotation of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has elevated the race and allowed athletes from all over the world to experience a World Championship event at fantastic locations," added Messick. "The finalists for the 2017 championship are all tremendous hosts to IRONMAN races and provide courses well suited for an event of this caliber. These cities also provide our athletes and their families world-class hospitality and endless scenic and entertainment options."

Finalists:

Chattanooga, Tennessee - Chattanooga, known throughout the Southeastern U.S. as the Scenic City with a vibrant downtown, lures athletes with its dramatic backdrop, idyllic weather and low-key southern charm. Host to IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events, Chattanooga provides a fast course with a swim in the Tennessee River. Four bridges cross the river over the swim and a pedestrian Riverwalk runs along the entire swim course making it ideal for spectators. Chattanooga is just 90 minutes from Atlanta and is full of attractions, eclectic dining spots and great places to stay.

Lake Placid, New York - Having hosted two Olympic Games (1932 and 1980), this charming town knows how to deliver a world-class athletic event. Lake Placid, located in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, hosts IRONMAN Lake Placid, the longest-running American event aside from the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i. Lake Placid has the amenities of a large city and the convenience of a small town, offering high-end restaurants, shopping and world-class accommodations.

St. George, Utah - This striking Southwestern community currently hosts the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Pro Championship. St. George offers breathtaking scenery and views of the surrounding red rock canyons. The city's walkable downtown area offers great local fare and boutique shopping. St. George is also only two hours from the nightlife of Las Vegas, with its never-ending entertainment options.

More than 200,000 athletes will participate in the global IRONMAN 70.3 Series during the 2016 season, which consists of nearly 90 events in locations such as Australia, Brazil, Malaysia and South Africa. Participants in the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will range in age from 18 to 80-plus and will represent over 60 countries. Each age-group winner at the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will automatically qualify for the 2016 championship.

Challenge-Puerto-Varas.pngChile will host the country's first Challenge Family triathlon on February 13, 2016 with the announcement of the half distance CHALLENGE PUERTO VARAS.

Puerto Varas, one of the most beautiful regions and cities in southern Chile is also known as "La ciudad de las rosas" or "the city of roses. It was formed from the German Colonization with immigrants who settled here between 1852 and 1853 and as such has a strong German heritage integrated with its South American culture.

The CHALLENGE PUERTO VARAS course is centered around this iconic South American town and includes the beautiful landscapes of the region, highlighting the imposing Osorno Volcano and Lake Llanquihue. Puerto Varas is also known for its adventure tourism with lots of water sports, particularly kayaking and canyoning and its strong German heritage and architecture combine with the South American culture.

The 1.9km two lap swim course takes place in the calm and crystal waters of Lake Llanquihue.

The three-lap 90km bike course runs along the shores of Lake Llanquihue heading towards Ensenada, where the majesty of the Osorno Volcano is constantly with athletes, towering over the lake views.

The half marathon run course is a fast, flat three laps also along the shores of Lake Llanquihue before finishing in the heart of the city.

The CHALLENGE PUERTO VARAS prize purse will be the highest in the history of triathlon in Chile at 20,5 million pesos (€30,000).

Edmundo Foncesca, CHALLENGE PUERTO VARAS spokesperson said the event would offer Chile's growing triathlon community outstanding opportunity.

"The idea of doing a half distance in the city of Puerto Varas, aims to offer the growing community of triathletes, not only Chileans and the region but to the international community, another career option where you can test the capabilities of each athlete. In addition the event will involve the whole family in this spectacular location, as is typical of the Challenge Family series of events. Chile and the region and Puerto.Varas, deserves to have this triathlon and we look forward to see you on February 13, 2016 along with your entire family," he said.

Renowned Chilean triathlete Marcelo Galvez gave the event his full support, "Puerto Varas is an excellent choice to run a triathlon because besides being able to participate in this event, athletes can enjoy exploring the area and discovering great places: Up to Osorno volcano, visit the town of Frutillar and taste its exquisite local cuisine, shop around the city of Puerto Montt and revel in cocinerías ... personally I'm really excited to visit CHALLENGE PUERTO VARAS!"

Puerto Varas is located in the southern Chilean province of Llanquihue, in the Los Lagos Region.

ITU sanctions two athletes for Anti-Doping Rule Violations
12:00:00 AM ITU News
ITU has today announced it has imposed a 10-month ban on both Hao Miao (CHN) and Liwei Sun (CHN). Both athletes committed anti-doping rule violations at an in-competition doping control test at the 2016 Weihai ITU Long Distance Triathlon Series Event for the use of Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). The athletes’ periods of ineligibility are backdated to October 31, 2016, at which time they each accepted a voluntary provisional suspension pending the outcome of a hearing. Both Miao and Sun forfeit their results from the men’s 2016 Weihai ITU Long Distance Triathlon Series Event. They may resume competing August 30, 2017.  The athletes asserted that the adverse analytical findings were as a result of ingestion of a fructose “candy” used for the purpose of carbohydrate supplementation and provided analysis reports in Chinese confirming that the candy contained HCTZ. After thorough investigation, six various bottles that had been purchased by the team management for the athletes’ use were sent for forensic analysis. A laboratory in China reported that two of these bottles, those containing of pressed fructose candy capsules purchased in 2015, were found to contain significant amounts of HCTZ. While the athletes were found to have no significant fault in the anti-doping rule violation, it is the responsibility of all athletes to be aware of what they ingest. Therefore, after a careful analysis of their degree of fault and identified shortcomings in respecting this duty of care, a period of ineligibility of 10 months was imposed by the Arbitration Panel. Following this situation, ITU reminds all athletes to be aware of everything they ingest, especially supplements. ITU is strongly committed to maintaining the integrity of the sport by ensuring athletes are competing on a level-playing field by abiding to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code to help keep triathlon clean.

Workout Wednesday with Dunia Gomez
12:00:00 AM ITU News
Workout Wednesday has been a longstanding tradition at the International Triathlon Union, where we like to honour and showcase some of the best triathletes in the world - you! We’ve talked to medallists from the 2016 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Cozumel age group races in both the standard and sprint distance sport classes and have asked them to provide their triathlete story along with their favourite workouts, proving that no matter your age, gender, race or country, anyone can tri! This week we have Dunia Gomez, a triathlon coach from Mexico who traded in her dancing shoes for triathlon gold medals. Switching to a triathlon suit was the start of a fantastic age-group career for Gomez as she became a three-time gold medallist at the 2016 World Championships in Cozumel, winning the standard distance, sprint distance and aquathlon races in the same week. She was also the 2015 world champ for aquathlon and the sprint distance for her age group. So if you are going to get any training tips from anyone, Gomez is it! Name: Dunia Gomez Tirado Country: MEX Age Group: Female 30-34 Standard Distance Profession: Triathlon Coach How you got involved in triathlon? I was a folkloric dancer and the teacher sent us to run and swim to do some conditioning. So I started swimming and while there I knew a triathlon group who then invited me to train with them. After starting with the group and doing some swimming and running, I then went to a relay triathlon in Ixtapa where I did the swimming part. It was after that race when I knew that I wanted to do triathlon forever, so I left dance and become a triathlete. How often you train? Every single day. Best training advice? Alway find a real personal meaning when it comes to training and then do it with your whole heart.   What motivates you to race? My Family. Favourite swim workout: 750m split (50m 100% rest 5’’, 100m 95% rest 10’’, 150m 90% rest 15’’, 200m 85-90% rest 20’’ and 250m 85-100%) Favourite bike workout: Counterclock of 20 km full gas Favourite run workout: 10x1000 @6’ 80-90%

Spaniard Camila Alonso and Brazilian Manoel Mesías grab Iberoamerican titles
12:00:00 AM ITU News
Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital, became the capital of the triathlon community in Latin America on Sunday, March 19, hosting the 2017 CAMTRI Sprint Triathlon American cup & Iberoamerican and South American Championships. It was also the meeting host site of the Iberoamerican Association, presided by ITU’s President, Marisol Casado, and CAMTRI President, Liber García. Ramírez Beach, one of the most popular places in the Uruguayan capital, hosted the sprint race, where athletes went for a 750m swim on the Atlantic ocean, followed by four laps of 5 km each in a very technical and flat bike circuit, to finish with a 5km run in the heart of the colonial city. In the women’s race, Spaniard Camila Alonso proclaimed herself Iberoamerican Champion for the second consecutive year, after leading the race from start to finish. She crossed the finish line with almost a minute of difference from the silver medalist, Mexican Adriana Barraza{/exp:tag_this}. Third spot on the podium went to Elizabeth Bravo (ECU). In the men’s race, Brazilian Manoel Mesías, the 2015 Junior World Champion and 2016 U23 World Champion runner-up, claimed the title on one of his first races as a senior athlete, confirming his promising up and coming career. Even though he didn’t performed as he used to on the swim, Mesías ended with a fabulous run which earned him the Iberoamerican champion title, followed on the finish line by Gonzalo Raul Tellechea (ARG) and Eder Mejía (MEX). This year’s race hosted 22 female athletes and 44 men who contested the Iberoamerican championship, with athletes coming from nine Iberoamerican countries.
