Keeping it Going!

As we make our way into mid-November and the season starts to wind down, there STILL is racing happening!

Two of the Lowcountry TYB Athletes were at it this past weekend!

After going long the past few season, TYB Athlete Bernie has decided to shift the focus towards some short course racing – focusing on shorter races and speed!  Kicking off with a baseline test at the Hilton Head Bridge Run 5K this past weekend, Bernie flew going 24 and change, taking 6th Overall and finishing 1st AG!

Down the coast a bit, TYB Athlete Bubba took to MiamiMan – and because of some Achilles issues decided to do the Aquabike at the last minute.  That decision paid off as he beat his goal by 5 minutes AND qualified to race in Canada next year for Team USA.

The work continues and the fun continues!  Every day is a step in the process and every workout is another brick added on the foundation!

TYB Studio Updates…

As the season starts to wind down – still Ironman North Carolina and Ironman Florida for some athletes – we slowly start looking toward 2017 and what the 2017 season possibly holds!

As far as the TYB Studio goes…  First off, we appreciate EVERYONE who continues to support us by coming to classes, have fun, and hopefully gaining some fitness!

Below are the following updates for the TYB Studios…

TYB Upstate / Anderson

For the month of October, we will not have any formal classes / sessions,  Instead, we will be doing a $25 “membership”.  This membership will allow you to ride as much – or as little – as you want to at the Studio.  So, with your $25, you will be given a key to the studio, directions and instructions on how to use the equipment, and your chance to ride inside at the Studio WHENEVER you want.  In addition to the unlimited ride time, the $25 will also give you access to Wednesday class / coach time at either 4:00pm or the 6:00pm time slot.  Currently, the plan is for me to be at the Studio on Wednesday afternoon during the 4:00pm usual class time frame as well as the 6:00pm.  Come and ride then – and depending on the group, pick either a coached style workout or pick a course and ride as easy or as hard as you want!

Also, for the month of October – BRING A FRIEND FOR FREE!!  Or… if you have not had the chance to ride in the Studio, come and check out a ride for FREE!

Adding more Fuel to the Fire!

Triathlon is made up of three sports – the Swim, the Bike, and the Run.  Over the course the time – and with quality and defined workouts – athletes will get fitter and faster and achieve their goals.

The higher the quality of workouts – and mixed with the proper amount of rest and recovery – the more efficient, fitter, and faster the athlete will become.

For consistent workouts, it becomes about more than only the aspects of swim, bike, and run – it also becomes about proper nutrition.  Not only the everyday nutrition, but also nutrition DURING the workouts.

Because of this, TYB currently stocks a few nutritional items – Carb Boom, E-Gel, Picky Bars, and now…  Accel Gel and 2nd Surgeboth from Pacific Health Labs

What makes Accel Gel unique is that it is the only gel that contains the patented 4:1 ratio of carbs and protein and it uses a combination of three carbohydrates to maximize energy transport and uptake into muscle cells. This novel combination guaranties instant energy when needed.

With 2nd Surge, it is the first all natural energy gel specifically formulated to delay the onset of both muscle and brain fatigue. The proprietary formula of rapidly acting carbohydrates, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants are proven to:

• Increase the delivery of cortical nutrients to brain and muscle cells

• Maintain metabolic energy needs

• Inhibit the release of fatigue signals in the brain
• Reduce muscle damage, an important trigger for release of fatigue signals
• Gives you added energy when you need it most

 

Now in stock at the TYB Studio or shipping throughout the United States, get your Accel Gel  ($25.99 for a case of 24 gels or $1.50 per gel) and 2nd Surge ($12.99 for a case of 8 gels or $2 per gel).  Current TYB Athletes receive a 15% discount.

Order your Accel Gel and 2nd Surge NOW!

 

Double Up Weekend!

The weekend is here… and time for more RACING!

After a GREAT mid-week race by TYB Athletes Sandy O’Keefe and Jennifer Long at the ITU Age Group Draft Legal World Championships, it is time to race WEEKEND style!

TYB Athletes race throughout South Carolina and in the Northeast!

TYB Athlete Hamish Andrews doubles up this weekend with the BMW 2 Miler on Friday evening and then takes to the coast for the Kiawah Island Olympic Distance Triathlon on Sunday.

Also racing in Kiawah, TYB Athlete Orlando Arias also races at the Kiawah Island Olympic Distance Triathlon as he continues to build for the half at Ironman North Carolina.

Finally, after racing in California last weekend at the Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz, Jimmy flew all the way across the country to take place in the Ragnar Reach the Beach in New Hampshire – a 200 mile 12 person run relay!

The Big Dance

In any sport or competition there is the penultimate contest that makes a statement to the world that you are the best of the best.

In triathlon,  where Ironman is the standard by which all triathlons are measured,  these are the Ironman World Championships.   This year the Ironman 70.3 Championship is held in Queensland, Australia.

TYB Coaching is proud to have a TYB athlete, Robert Vanderburg competing in the 2016 IM70.3 World Championship.  Robert punched his ticket to the Big Dance at IM70.3 Chattanooga! Good Luck Robert!   Race your race and have fun!
