70.3 Dubai: A last minute decision By: Alex Diaconu, RO PRO 

The decision to race Ironman 70.3 Dubai came with only 7 weeks to go due to the crazy hot winter weather, in Romania. Usually, it is -15 C with lots of snow, but this year, it was +5! ….. so after 6 weeks of no cycling but a lot of running, I started to do 120k+ rides every 2 days, so I could establish some base mileage.

Swim Workout of the Month #SWOM

By Celine Schaerer, CH PRO

The swim workout of the month is brought to you by Swiss Pro, Celine Schaerer. This swim-set will be sure to challenge any fitness level. Rather than descent on pace times, follow the assigned rest time between sets. This is a challenging workout, so the idea is to pick a pace time that you can maintain throughout the set before going ALL OUT in the last 200 J

 

As you get more fit you will swim these sets faster, but the recovery time will remain the same. Post your workout and use the hashtags #SWOMDT2

The problem was, however, I didn’t write down the recipe. I spent most of my ride trying to remember what I had put in them. A month and a million batches later, I finally nailed the recipe. Wrap these babies in tin foil and ride away.
