A run, a swim and a bike ride. But mostly, a run! by Amy G. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 22 Sep 2008 11:07am Saturday was the Team's long run for the season. For those of us training for the Olympic length Pacific Grove Tri, the schedule was to run no more than 7 miles. For those of us who hadn't run in the past several weeks, that looked daunting. And by "us" I mean me. I received permission from my physical therapist to run. He said something li ... Read on »

Last long ride and swim before I become a Pumpkin(wo)man! by LittleMissRunshine Posted Wed 07 Sep 2011 6:41am This Monday I got up fairly early, 5:40 AM, for a long ride. I ate some oatmeal with blueberries, chia seeds and craisons. In addition to having 2 Gu’s on hand, I taped a Luna bar to my bike. I wanted to practice fueling, since I’ve been bad and haven’t done this really for my other long rides. This didn’t work out so well. I should have o ... Read on »

Why the Swim is First by Roman M. Patient Expert Posted Mon 21 Jul 2008 10:05am Have you ever spoken with a friend or acquaintance that has no knowledge of triathlon? I have and I’m always amazed that they just assume that the swim is last. It does seem logical that after all the biking, running and sweating that swimming would be a great way to end the race. The funny thing is that the history of triathlon proves tha ... Read on »
