Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

Taylor Brinkman had a solid race at 70.3 Chattanooga this weekend. We had a lot of things we wanted to work on from 70.3 Texas (only 6 weeks earlier), and not a lot of time to do it. I threw a big workload at Taylor, and never doubted that he would rise to the challenge. He had a 15 watt NP improvement on the bike course, only ran 3 minutes slower on a significantly hillier course (after a significantly hillier bike course), and even though the swim was shortened, we're still going to count it as an overall 70.3 PR. But I'm most proud of the way he stayed committed to the plan, fought through the biggest TSS weeks of his season, and dove head first into his mental goals to come away with a great performance.

409Male

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Fernando had a perfectly executed race. Fernando's Swim was smooth and efficient, coming out of the water 35th in his age group. He followed up that with a solid bike hitting his targeted power perfectly. He was 29th in his age group. Finally, he delivered on an outstanding run. With this being his first 70.3 we focused on a controlled start and a strong finish. Fernando delivered. He negatively split his race and finished faster than planned. A testament to his training and mental toughness. Fernando is going to go back to the CU tri team for the fall but if he decides to focus on 70.3 in the future with some focus on his bike he could take considerable time off his time. He has lots of potential.

I'm really proud of myself for showing up to the start line ready to give whatever I had in me, after dealing with food poisoning for the few days leading up to the race. I hadn't kept anything in my body, including all fluids and my pre-race dinner, so I wasn't sure what I would be able to do once the gun went off. I had my slowest Ironman swim of all time, then as I started to keep some calories in my body on the bike, I felt better and better, and surprisingly got off the bike ready to race the marathon. I didn't know where I was in the field, but I knew that I had enough strength to fight for every last second and I was determined to get the most out of myself, especially after thinking I may not even be able to finish.

He even went so far as to buy an altitude tent to sleep in so the trip to Boulder would not be as big a deal. His swim was good to start off the race. His bike was even better. He had practiced the boulder bike course on Best Bike Split and came prepared to race. He stayed within his target power and executed perfectly. On the run, he started out controlled and followed his race plan. Sergio's paced an even split race and was strong enough to push the last 2 miles to meet his goal.

John Herrel raced Ironman Copenhagen yesterday and delivered at every stage. He started the race off with a 3 minute PR on the swim. Given that he had injured his ankle just a few weeks before the race and was unsure how the run would go, he was really focused on making up time on the bike. He really got after it and rode to a 16 minute PR on the bike. With his ankle a question mark he started off the run and was able to push through the discomfort. Even with the ankle he only missed a PR on the run by 6 minutes. With each strong performance, he made his goal of a sub 11 hour Ironman. Great job!!

Leading into race day, her jitters transitioned from nervousness about the distance to concerns about the weather, which was predicted to be cold, windy, and rainy. The weather forecast improved (just a bit), and with a helluva lot of grit and determination, she got it done! Massive CONGRATULATIONS on a huge goal accomplished, Heather!!!

Dore finished out her season with a 3rd overall at the Oktoberfest Sprint Tri. It's been a long season of battling injuries and life changes for Dore. It's hard to keep everything in perspective when the previous 2 seasons resulted in Ironman podiums, and this year was a battle just to be able to workout without pain. It goes to show that we can use triathlon to really push ourselves to reach new limits of endurance and speed, and sometimes we need it to just be there for us as a source of fun, escape, and a reason to be around teammates. Although it's been challenging, Dore has learned to roll with the punches this year and has continued to race sprints as an outlet for fun. She starts a new internship today as the off-season starts and continues to make progress as an athlete and person. I'm incredibly proud of the way she handled this year and I know next year she'll be back ready to kick some ass. One of the speeches at the Endurance Coaching Summit last week in Boulder was about coming back from injury, and one of my favorite quotes was: "It's not a comeback. I'm not getting back to anything. I'm carving a new path." So Dore won't just be back next year, she'll be a brand new better version of herself, and everyone better watch out!

Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

Casey came out of the water in 14th in her AG, and immediately fought off 10 girls by the first timing check point 32 miles into the bike. She battled her way to 2nd place and continued to make progress on the leader throughout the entire day, but ran out of room at the end, to finish in 2nd. Casey wanted the win and the Kona spot, and it's a tough pill to swallow when you fight your ass off all day in 95 degree heat, and then your AG only get's one spot. But she came away with a 15 minute PR, was 6th overall amatuer, and got a lot tougher yesterday.

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Having thought he was able to successfully transfer his registration to a later 70.3 in a few weeks, this was a bit of a surprise when he was initially told race week that would not be permissible. Ultimately Boris was able to gain entry into the planned race - so two 70.3s for the price of one :) Given the last minute notification and not having this race within the planning Boris was able to put together a very respectable day. Swim and bike both on target with what we discussed. Run was very steady from start to finish, but just unable to find another gear or two.

It was a HOT day in Augusta, and Rami went into the race ready to embrace the heat and tackle any challenges that came his way. We are still working out some details with hydration and pacing, but the biggest improvement Rami has made this season is not being afraid to push himself to his limits and leave it all out there on race day.

Very good race for Boris on the heels of the previous weekend's 70.3 race. Able to hold a steady effort from start to finish. Had a great run with ability to find some extra gears and accelerate when he wanted. Most importantly, he shared this race experience with his 17 year-old daughter who completed her first triathlon!

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Jack set up his race with an extremely well-executed swim & bike to plan as he moved through the field. 8th after the swim and up to 4th after the bike. Ran well first few miles but unfortunately things unraveled as he battled sever muscle tightness in his shoulders, back and just below rib cage. He battled every step of the run to will himself to the finish. While not the result we anticipated, super proud of his effort on this day and commitment to the process throughout the year. Well done Jack!

Don developed a chest cold leading into race day and this was a big concern. Despite that, he was able to throw down an IM bike PR - super impressive! That chest cold caught up to him on the run, though, and although he wanted to quit given several times, he persevered and got it done. Don brought his characteristic determination to his day, and I'm so proud of him for crossing that finish line!

Notes from Coach Alison Freeman

Mike was firing on all cylinders leading into race day, and was definitely bummed about the swim cancellation because his swim is the best it has been in years. Mike didn't let that distract him, though, and he ended up taking 7 minutes off his IMLou bike split from 2 years ago! He would've PR'd the run as well but for some GI distress for about 6 miles. Overall a great showing for Mike!
