2010 Ford Ironman World Championship Highlights

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What a race last weekend! Wellington bows out. Reminiscent of the Scott vs. Allen 1989 IronWar, McCormack and Raelert go tactical in the last few miles, and Macca’s experience wins out. Carfrae powers her way past Dibens in the marathon. Lost in the post-race hoopla, Carfrae finishes in 8:58, only four minutes behind Wellington’s 2009 world record pace. Enjoy these TriCenter highlights, and get ready for next year. RACE ON.

Dave Scott Free e-Program

While we’re basking in the warm weather down south in Boulder, I noticed that freezing rain was forecast for Bozeman this week. Fall has arrived up north. Tritons, it’s time to work on some of those flabby areas. I’m going to send you a sample program from my website that you can all try over the next 6 weeks. I have mountains of programs that will address all your strength needs. Check out my website at www.davescottinc.com and let me know how you do on this e-program. I’m sure Art’s magnificent 6-pack is a good goal for all of you. Paste the following link http://davescottinc.com/total-body-tri-101/  into your browser and check your Triton email for the password.

Swim Tips by Dave Scott, Summer OWS Program

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Open water swimming at the pond is right around the corner. Hooaaaaah! As we wait for the water temperatures to warm, here are a few swim technique tips to practice at the pool from Ironman Dave Scott.

As a reminder, the Bozeman Masters Swim Club (“BOZE”) will be offering open water swim sessions at the Pond every Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM, beginning June 2nd, weather and water temperature dependent.

After years of informal, sporadically scheduled, hey let’s swim at the pond tomorrow! Open Water Swims at the East Gallatin Recreation Area and Hyalite Reservoir, the BOZE OWS program is now structured , representing an even greater commitment to this swim format, and to community triathletes and open water swimmers. There’s a pre-set Monday & Wednesday evening schedule, offering numerous triathlon swim and open water swim training sessions this summer.

For this inaugural year of the program, Tritons, local triathletes, and others may swim with the new, summer-long BOZE OWS program simply by joining United States Masters Swimming (“USMS”). No other separate BOZE membership fees are required.

USMS Memberships are available online for $32 at http://www.usms.org/reg/. Please list your Club affiliation as the Bozeman Masters Swim Club, and your Workout Group as None. The Club abbreviation is BOZE.

If interested, full memberships to the complete BOZE program, providing access and privileges to all BOZE swim training opportunities at the pools AND the pond, are separately available at www.bozemanmasters.org.

Let’s support this new BOZE OWS program, and this renewed commitment to triathlon swimming and open water swimming in our community!

As a final comment, with respect to the triathlon swim training and open water swimming experience and the visibility of this swim format at the Pond, for the near term, I personally would love to see permanent swim course buoys and an open water swim event during Sweet Pea weekend, on Sunday, the day after the Bozeman Classic. Call it a “broken” duathlon, too. Support the buzz. Chat up BOZE coaches, members, and others, and may be this ball will start rolling!

Missoula, Montana – April 10, 2010
Four Tritons Land on the Grizzly Triathlon Age Group Podium!
The Tritons recorded a couple of firsts this year at 22nd annual Grizzly Triathlon. The Club had its largest number of racers ever at the season opener—FIFTEEN– and its largest number of podium finishers ever, with FOUR. Either we’re growing or getting faster, and both are good. Julie Zickovich, Laurie Thatcher & Art Thompson landed silver medals, and Greg Benjamin earned a bronze. Occasionally referred to as the Montana World Championships by local Missoulians, the Grizzly Triathlon is by far the largest multi-sport race in Montana. Four hundred and six individual triathletes and seventeen teams participated yesterday. Age group sizes again ran deep, with most hovering around 20 racers per bracket. Sunny weather offered fast race conditions. Detailed race results follow. Congrats to all, and TRAIN ON.

TRAIN WITH A PURPOSE – Michelle Blessing

Time to Get Moving!

Ok Tritons, no more loafing around waiting for the weather to break – spring is here and it’s time to get going!  Don’t forget to strengthen your glutes, low back and abs as you ramp up your spring training.  Below are a couple great exercises; hip extension and hip abduction with a stretch cord.  These two will really fire those dormant glute muscles.  Good luck.  – Dave Scott
