Hi Gale, I have just bought your 70.3 beginner triathlon training plan and loaded it onto my TrainingPeaks account. I would like it to start on a Sunday, not a Monday as Sunday is my day off. I cannot seem to do it. I have the premier edition of TrainingPeaks. Can you please let me know how to do it? Thanks, Toby ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hi Toby, First, thanks for using one of my training plans to help you succeed. In the plan, Sunday tends to be a big workout day - so I'm not sure you want to move the...

If all goes well, I will complete my 10th Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race this year. In the last 15 years, I've coached and helped several racers successfully complete the race and others have achieved PRs (personal records). All of this experience can help you too. If you are racing this year or plan to race the event in the future, here are a few last minute tips that might help: Altitude. If you are arriving shortly before the race, one of the first things you will notice is that your breathing is labored and any small effort – like...

My famous “13 Weeks to a 13-Hour Ironman” is easily one of my top triathlon training plans. An experienced triathlete with reasonable fitness can be ready for an Ironman in just 13 weeks, training no more than 13 hours per week – and – achieve a 13 hour race or better. Many, many athletes have sent me notes letting me know they have achieved race times well below 13 hours using this training plan. How fast you will go on race day depends on your athletic history and current fitness. You don’t have to give up your life and divorce...

Q. I have worked with a coach and saw steady gains in my power and endurance after coming to the sport of cycling a little late in life. Then I hit a brick wall called menopause. After a year of trial and error to figure out how to keep improving and not lose ground I am stumped. The changes in my hormones have caused a serious lack of endurance, a small weight gain, and I never know if I will be able to finish a long ride or race competitively because my energy levels are completely unpredictable. To say that...

If you’re competing in cold water, take a thermos of warm (not hot) water to the swim start with you. Just before zipping up your wetsuit, pour the warm water into the suit. With a layer of warm water next to your body, you don’t have to heat up the cold lake water that seeps into the wetsuit the first few meters. It is good to practice this in your triathlon training too.

You might have your race plan strategically laid out, training went well and then you get a glimpse of the weather forecast. Rain. Ugh. Not a little rain, but rain the entire day. Ugh. Roger Anderson had that exact scenario unfold at the Big Frog 65 last weekend. Rather than wringing his hands and fretting about something he couldn’t change, we made plans for the possibility of bad weather. We had light weight clothing options, warm fluid in the hydration pack and waterproof options like baggie corners over his toes, large latex gloves to...
