    AHAA Moments in the Pool

    By Julia Aimers, Head Coach of Team Triumph Triathlon Club I LOVE IT WHEN OUR ATHLETES POP THEIR HEADS UP IN THE POOL
    and you can literally see the lightbulb go off! They follow it with "I get it when you mean...______" The swimmer then goes off down the pool with a whole new stroke and us triathlon coaches are doing the happy dance on deck. We have found the language or drill that has created this ahhaa moment to help the swimmer feel smoother, stronger and faster in the pool. AT LAST: A BREAKTHROUGH!!!!
    I'm sure any swim coach would agree that when you hear an "I get it when you mean" type sentence you throw it right into your coaching bag of ....

  • Triathlon Season is just around the corner

    Triathlon Season is just around the corner

    Triathlon season is just around the corner which means that it's time to look at the race schedule on Sportstats and decide which races you want to complete. Having races in your calendar gives you a goal to chase. Having a goal keeps your motivation to workout high. When your motivation is high, your training is consistent. Consistent training makes you fitter, healthier and happier. The fitter you are, the more likely you are to not only achieve your goals but maybe even exceed your expectations! How do you decide which races you should choose? First of all, it's best to check the family calendar and see what's scheduled for the Summer so there are no conflicts. When deciding on the ....

  • Do Triathletes Really Need to Swim in the Winter Months?

    Do Triathletes Really Need to Swim in the Winter Months?

    DO TRIATHLETES REALLY NEED TO SWIM DURING THE WINTER? IT'S COLD AND DARK...the alarm rings at 5:30am. You could roll over and get an extra hour sleep or get to the pool. Your sleepy brain says nahhh... I'll stay put, triathletes don't really need to swim in the Winter. Have you had that conversation with yourself before? There has been a long-time rumour in the triathlon community that triathletes who are decent swimmers don't need to swim during the winter months. The idea is that triathletes will get fewer gains from being a couple of minutes faster in the water and they should spend that time swimming or cycling more. Yes, that may be true but... The problem with this theory is that ....

  • Byron Johnson - From Sprint to Half Ironman at 70 years young

    Byron Johnson - From Sprint to Half Ironman at 70 years young

    This past September 7th, I completed my first ½ Ironman equivalent, the Demi-Esprit in Montreal and qualified for the World Championships. This was my seventh triathlon of thesummer but only an intermediate goal toward doing a full Ironman in 2020 which is my final goal of a three-year plan. However, even that three-year plan took a couple of years to develop. I had a strong cycling background and could, even coax my 70-year-old legs to run at a reasonable pace, but swimming was going to the challenge – I didn’t realize how much of a challenge until I tried it. Four years ago, I signed up for a weekend swim clinic with a local sports club. At the end of the first day, ....
