  • Fall Racing at its Best

    Fall Racing at its Best


    What an incredible week in Lausanne Switzerland at the ITU World Championships! Team Triumpher, Sue Bennett and I marched at the parade of nations with our fellow Team Canada mates. We checked out the course and there was one steep climb and one really steep descent just to add tothe excitement. The water looked like a calm ocean. It was a beautiful green, blue and wonderfully clear. When race day arrived the water was a bit rough but Sue took it all in stride and hit her target in all three events making it to the finish line and coming in 28th in the world!! Congratulations Sue!! We are all so incredibly proud of you! ....

    So.....You've Gone and Done it!!!!

    It’s official you have signed up for a triathlon BUT now what? It’s months away, so you can wait until January to get started, right?
    It all depends on the distance of the race and when it is. One essential element of any successful triathlete is to dedicate the time necessary to properly train for a race. Regardless of your experience or fitness level, it's important to start training long before your first race of the season. This can mean the difference between feeling good and finishing strong, struggling to get over that finish line or a DNF (did not finish). We share in our blog “ When Should I Start Training for a Triathlon ” when ....

    "Aug 4th was the second edition of La Traversée du lac Tremblant. When I submitted my application for the 12k HUUB Ultra Swim, I thought I wouldn’t be selected and would enjoy instead doing the 3k swim taking place on Saturday. I have always been intrigued by long-distance swimmers and La Traversée seemed the perfect location to try it. I first registered as a swimmer to ....

  • Toronto Triathlon Festival - Coach Julia vs Son

    Toronto Triathlon Festival - Coach Julia vs Son

    Son vs Mum And the Winner is..... What a blast we had today at the Toronto Triathlon Festival!! This race was a first for me and a great experience. Over the Christmas holidays, I challenged my son Ryan who is now 25 to a triathlon. He is working in the financial industry in Toronto so needed a little extra incentive from Mum to kick his butt out of the office and get to the gym! I had coached him and his brother when they raced in Kids of Steel but he hasn't done a triathlon since he was about 10 years old. Even though the temps were baking hot, I had been warned that the water temperature never really warms up so I was happy I decided to wear ....

  • 3x Podium Finishes at ITU World Triathlon Series - Montreal

    3x Podium Finishes at ITU World Triathlon Series - Montreal

    What an exciting day of racing for Team Triumph! We started the race at 11:20 am in the stinking, hot and humid Montreal heat so the debate was on to wetsuit or not to wetsuit? Two of us decided to go without, which in a 750m swim you can save time by not taking the suit off but how much time do you lose without it on? My choice was to go without to bring down my core temperature which was already high. The swim was lovely; not too wavy and well spread out. The bike was super fun!! It was a 5 x 4 km loop and was very technical with tight turning descents and a descent into a sharp, short steep hill. Each time you could play with how to take the turns a bit faster and tighter. When we hit ....
