Triathlon Pre-Race checklist along with downloadable PDF Printable Sheet
Whether you’re a seasoned multi-sport expert or a complete triathlon novice, our top 20 triathlon tips will help you get more from your swimming, cycling and running performance.
The speed you can achieve on your bike is determined by two factors:
1. How much power you can produce2. Wind resistance. The faster you go, the more wind drag you need to overcome.
A few months ago there was an excellent article in Velonews (Vol 39, No 3) about which aerodynamic equipment benefits most during an individual time trial. What they didn’t do is rank the cost vs. benefit for each piece of equipment and the associated time savings. Years ago I saw something like this done by cyclingnews and found it extremely interesting. Unfortunately it’s buried deep in the internet and is lost forever so I thought I’d rehash it for those of you who missed it.
Earlier this week, a Huffington Post article titled “30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Know at 30” made its rounds among women. Originally featured in a 1997 issue of “Glamour” magazine, the editors are now turning the list into a book, released Tuesday. The post has received 1,500 comments, 32, 000 Facebook posts, and over 4000 Pinterest pins so far.
Being the triathlon devotee that she is, Lisa Barnes, one of our writers here at LAVA posted a triathlon-inspired version of the list on her blog TriMojo today and gave us permission to re-post it here. ”Now that I’m 33, I’m happy to report that I have accomplished nearly everything on this list,” Barnes writes. Her thoughts then turned to her progress as an athlete, and she realized that in triathlon, as well as life, the 30s are the decade in which many athletes start to achieve a rhythm and balance in their approach to multisport.
At least, that’s the theory we’ve been working with since 1923. But a controversial new study from researchers on three continents suggests that the famous “VO2max” – the maximum amount of oxygen that you’re able to deliver to your muscles during hard exercise – isn’t really a maximum at all. Your heart and lungs don’t call the shots after all; your brain does.
The concept of VO2max was first introduced by Nobel Prize-winning physiologist A.V. Hill, who found that the amount of oxygen consumed by his muscles increased as he ran at a steadily increasing pace – up to a point. Eventually, his oxygen consumption would plateau, even if he continued to run faster and faster until he reached exhaustion. That plateau, he argued, represented his body’s “maximal oxygen uptake,” or VO2max.
