Racing Tip from the Cycling Center: Know the Course
One of the most important aspects of racing that often gets over looked is course reconnaissance. Gaining proper knowledge of the course will not only help you on race day, but will also help you better prepare for the specific features that lay ahead. For example, if the route is very technical, with lot's of hills and turns, you can incorporate intervals with multiple accelerations and changes in momentum to prepare your body for the stresses you'll experience on race day. As race day draws closer, this is the time when you want to study the specific road directions of the course. Take note of major directional changes and landmarks so that you can have a sense of where you are on course. This can also help you identify quickly if you've made a wrong turn. Remember, knowledge of the course is your responsibility, and a wrong turn can result in a penalty or disqualification. As stated above, this is an often overlooked aspect of racing, and therefore a great way to get the edge on your competition and give you confidence on race day. #dowork #trainsmart #racesmart #embracethechallenge

Looking to improve your balance, power, strength, and even flexibility? Adding plyometric training to your routine can help boost your performance . This type of exercise utilizes maximum muscle recruitment, you’re able to turn your legs over faster and push off harder. This means increased economy and faster times. Start weaving these exercises into your workout gingerly. A little goes a long way. #embracethechallenge #iamwithoutlimits #plyometrics #running #triathlon

How to Keep a Healthy Perspective on Running: There are two types of Runners - those who respond to failure with discouragement, and those who respond to failure with renewed motivation. The most successful athletes are the later of the two. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you work towards your goals. 1. As a runner, failure is inevitable. Accept it and don’t judge it. Injuries, aging, subpar performances are all bound to happen at some point. How you deal with the setbacks is what moves you forward.
2. Comparison is the enemy of happiness. There will always be someone faster or someone stronger. Stay focused on your unique abilities and gauge performance on how you improve as an athlete.
3. Zoom out your perspective. So many athletes live in self-doubt because they judge themselves in relation to the few people at the very top. Middle of the pack runners do the same with people near the top, and back of the packers with the people in the middle. Expand your perspective and realize that each person that toes the line is amazing and has already taken a journey that most people in the world have not.
4. Smiles beat seriousness in the long term. Practice relentless optimism, always. You will fail as a runner at some point in your running career. It happens to everyone. Runners that are fulfilled long-term are motivated by patience & persistence. In short…..Laugh, smile and keep running! - Coach Nina #dowork #havefun #embracethechallenge

Tech Tip from the Cycling Center: Bikes can be expensive, and one of the best ways to protect your investment is to keep it clean. When you're riding an indoor trainer, always be sure to drape a towel over your handlebars to keep as much sweat off your bike as possible. A quick wipe down with rubbing alcohol or windex after your ride can help dry up any sweat that your towel missed. If you're riding outside, it's good to get in the habit of wiping down your chain after each ride. Take a rag (not the same rag you use on the frame) and grip the chain while you back pedal your cranks. It takes about 30 seconds, and it's the easiest way to extend the life of your drive-train. #dowork #cleanbike #embracethechallenge #wolcyclecenter

Tips for Ocean Swimming, by Coach Kristen Smith Jeno. The following opportunities can increase your exposure to unforeseeable water conditions. Remember to never swim alone and respect the water, only entering if you feel confident and trained.
1. Take open water clinics, often offered by Coach Kristen or athletes. These clinics give you a chance to enter the water at a slower pace with a group of people, simulating a race start.
2. Perfect your dolphin skills over and under waves. Too many people like to side-swim, walk or dog paddle through oncoming swells or white water. Getting under the waves will save you a tremendous amount of energy in getting to the first buoy.
3. Train for the open water with Without Limits Swimming. We schedule monthly swims with great attendance. The more time you spend in the water, the more comfortable you will feel race day.
4. Never miss the opportunity to warm-up. This is your chance to feel the water temperature, the current and the depth. Also view the course from in the water and make adjustments on your goggles, wetsuit or start position and path.
5. Take advantage of the group starting ahead. Watch racers’ entries and path to the first buoy. If the entire group is being pushed south by the current, re-think your start location. Note any palaces where people may be steeping into holes, or running across sandbars.
6. Consider going wetsuit-less in big surf. The buoyancy of the neoprene hinders your chances of getting under big waves.

Have you ever heard the quote “you are only as strong as your weakest link”? Well for a runner the strength component is often over looked and neglected. Which means If you have a weak core your running mechanics will suffer and In turn can lead to injury. Developing a strong stomach, back, and hips will improve your alignment and make you more stabile as you hit the ground which allows you to be a more economical runner. Coach Maleia shows you how to improve your core strength from a beginner to an advance movement in this core exercise. #corestrength #betterrunner #dowork #embracethechallenge
