Re-Introduction

Hello fellow triathletes!

Recently, I had a member of the Tritons tell me he didn’t even know I was a coach.  What a surprise for me!  If there is one, there are probably more.  So, here it is (briefly):

I did my first triathlon in 1994, and have probably raced in over 100 endurance related events, most of them triathlons (both road and off-road).  I have qualified for the XTERRA national championships each year I have raced a full off-road season.

Aside from having a degree from MSU in Health and Human Development, I also am a USAT Level I Coach, NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist, and Nationally Certified as a Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworker (NCTMB).

I have been assisting people with their sport-specific and fitness related goals for the past 15 years.  My part-time business, Moving Forward, provides performance coaching and therapeutic massage.  Individually tailored to meet your needs, I can help improve your athletic capabilities; whether it is injury prevention through strength and conditioning, a more customized training plan, or treatment-based massage, I can assist you.

I look forward to seeing you in the wintertime.  Ask me about Bozeman Triton rates!  Please let me know if you have questions.  I will be writing more blogs this off-season about training/conditioning and injury prevention.

Enjoy your day, and happy training!

THE IRONWAR — DAVE SCOTT & MARK ALLEN
By 1989, Dave Scott was a six-time Ironman World Champion and Mark Allen, defeated in his previous attempts, a feared contender. This year, though, all bets were off. From the start, Mark hung on to Dave with mind-numbing intensity, and won.

Interbike – Las Vegas

interbike

Just a quick note on my first experience with Interbike.  For those who don’t know what Interbike is…basically, it is the largest bicycling convention in the world which takes place every September in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Every company/vendor that has anything to do with bicycling has a booth at the Sands Convention Center, and only people who are associated with the business (i.e. retailers, professional athletes, coaches) are given a pass to attend.  I was fortunate enough this year to acquire a pass with the guys from Great Divide Cyclery from Helena, Montana.

While there, I not only saw some great products that will be introduced in 2010, but also saw leaders in the sport from the likes of Christian VandeVelde (American pro cyclist) to Gary Fisher (bike innovator and creator).  I also attended the Cervelo private party at the Palazzo (in the Venetian Hotel/Casino) and met some of the riders for the Cervelo Test Team (ProTour team).

It was a great time, and I must thank Eric and Steve from Great Divide for letting me tag along. 

Some things to keep an eye out for as far as triathlon goes…TYR Hurricane (first wetsuit ever done by the company), 2XU X1 Project wetsuit, and the Specialized Transition/Shiv time-trial bikes.

Happy training,

Coach Aubrey

Triton Training in Winter Wonderland

Well, apparently there will be absolutely no fall this year…and we are moving right into winter.  After two weeks in hot and sunny Las Vegas, I was welcomed home last week with 40 degree temps.

However, there is some good that comes from the weather turning as it has. For those who are coming off a long, hard training and racing season…this is mother nature telling you to take some much needed rest and relaxation.

If you are one of those who absolutely refuse to sit still for any length of time, at least take this time to prepare for some winter sports.  Personally, I have retrieved the cross-country skiis from the storage unit, and look forward to possibly getting on them come November (we’ll see).

For those who don’t ski, we are still meeting every week until the end of November for a run in preparation for the Rock N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon or Half Marathon.  This should be a nice, flat, fun race to keep motivation high through the cold winter months.  For the next few weeks, we will be doing more hill work to build strength.

As for the Saturday bike rides, we plan on riding outside as long as the roads are dry/clear, and the weather cooperates.  This past Saturday we had a great turnout, and the temps began to warm up after the start.  Everyone is free to ride their own pace – not a race, but don’t hesitate to “mix it up” if you feel the urge.

And of course, I cannot forget BOZE Masters workouts…every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday.  Now is a great time to focus on your swimming, so when the spring comes around, you can devote more time to the bike and run.

There’s plenty of opportunities to train and socialize with the Bozeman Tritons this winter.  Happy training (I’ll see you out there)!
