no kansas for me...

After more than five months of training for one specific race, I'm

fairly disappointed I won't be racing Kansas 70.3. My knee issues just

aren't getting any better. In fact, it's gotten worse. It has been

really tough to train over the past week or so, mainly because I kinda

knew I had to make this decision. I worked extremely hard to get to

where I am and now it feels like I failed myself a bit.

I know injuries are part of life, especially running, but it… Continue

My journey to being a cyclist in Colorado Springs

Cycling. It's something that's been near and dear to my heart since I was a child building trails to ride on when I was just 9 years old back home in MN. I guess that's where I started to get spoiled with ease of access to trails. In '87 I stopped riding my bmx bike on trails we made in my neighborhood and started riding my dad's Schwinn Cruiser "5 speed"....big wide handlebars....with the shifter right at the stem for some God forsaken reason. Two years later in '89 I made the biggest purchase… Continue

While preparing for a race that includes open water swimming, it is highly recommended to practice in open water first. But sometimes it's not possible to swim in open water before your race.

Training on treadmills

by Dr. Romanov-

No matter how much I dislike talking about tips, I have to do it now because there is no time to write a manual for treadmill running. I'll do it later as a separate chapter for one of the planned books. For now I would like to pretend that it is a short version of it. We prepared a video clip with Severin for our Wednesday's Video presentation, which, together with this article, will give you some insight into treadmill running.

Help Me, Help My Friend!

Have you ever had a bad workout? One where you think why the hell am I still doing this? Why do I put myself through this pain willingly? What makes me think I can do all these crazy races? I have these ideas run through my head more often than I would like to admit but the key is to push those thoughts out of your mind and move on.

One way that I do this is to remember one person. This person happens to be a great friend of mine and…

From October to May

Apparently, I've come a long way since October 3rd, 2009. I've decided

I finished 121st out of 207 yesterday, which put me in the 58th

percentile. In October, I finished 102 out of 132, so in the 77th

AFA Falcon Groundspeed Triathlon - Post Race

Having done this triathlon last October, I pretty much knew what to expect coming into this morning. I ran through my race plan the night before and was pretty sure I had everything ready. I went to bed early and wasn't nervous at all, so I slept amazing. Apparently, I didn't set my alarm, but still managed to wake up around 6:10, so I still had plenty of time. I made a strawberry shake and brought an orange with for pre-race fuel.

I got to the Academy and setup my transition spot.… Continue
