Runners brave the cold for Antarctic Ice Marathon https://sport-topics.com/runners-brave-the-cold-for-antarctic-ice-marathon https://sport-topics.com/runners-brave-the-cold-for-antarctic-ice-marathon This year’s Antarctic Ice Marathon saw more than 60 competitors from 20 nations

Reuters – Courageous runners braved snow and freezing temperatures this week for the Antarctic Ice Marathon, won by Ireland’s Sean Tobin who organizers said clocked a record time on the continent.

The event, the 17th of its kind, took place on Wednesday at Union Glacier, with more than 60 competitors from 20 nations taking part. Organizers describe it as “the southernmost marathon on Earth.”

Tobin, 28, ran the traditional marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers (26.22 miles) in 2:53.33.

“You just sink (into the snow)… One turn I took, I just went completely legless and hit the ground. I was trying to get up and go again,” Tobin said after finishing.

“I had to go deep inside myself (to complete the course).”

Race director Richard Donovan said Tobin had recorded “the fastest marathon ever run in Antarctica.”

“I’ve never seen anything like it, to be able to run that fast in these kind of conditions,” he said. “It’s like running in sand… You can’t really get a spring off it.”

Becca Pizzi, from the United States, won the women’s race with a time of 4:24.15.

4 heart rate problems endurance athletes face (and how to deal with them) https://sport-topics.com/4-heart-rate-problems-endurance-athletes-face-and-how-to-deal-with-them https://sport-topics.com/4-heart-rate-problems-endurance-athletes-face-and-how-to-deal-with-them Let’s take a deep dive into some of the heart rate issues every endurance athlete has probably encountered

Heart rate-based training has been a mainstay concept these past years. It’s a potent, easy, and cost-effective way of approaching training. In essence, it’s about staying within a particular HR value for different types of sets and workouts. But as simple as it sounds, some people still find it a bit difficult to execute and maintain.

This is understandable as there are a few quirks and peculiarities regarding this type of training. In this article, we’re going to talk about the common problems athletes encounter when it comes to heart rate.

Zones don’t line up

When you first use your watch or computer, it automatically presents you with default zones based on your age. While this is a fair estimate for the entire population in general, oftentimes, people notice their default zones don’t line up with how they feel. This is because formula-based HR zone calculations are usually not that accurate. There are a lot of factors influencing individual HR values. Genetics, gender, and fitness level are a few examples. The solution is simple. You need to do tests to help align your zones.

Heart rate-based training is about staying within a particular HR value for different types of sets and workouts

The most common test would be to do an LTHR (or FTP) test but this has its own set of problems. In a nutshell, you need to have pretty good fitness and motivation to go all out for 20 to 30 minutes and you also need to pace it perfectly.

From my experience working with athletes, the best way to do it is through a lactate test. This test, which I do in my lab, is a more tolerable, guided, and powerful way of establishing zones. Not only does it give you your zones, it also helps determine the type of training you should emphasize.

Heart rate is erratic or inconsistent

“Garbage in, garbage out” is a common term in data and computer science. What this means is that without a proper way of measuring data, it’s hard to establish the right trends and direction. This is the same for heart rate measurement: It should be done correctly.

Heart rate is an essential tool in any endurance athlete’s arsenal

There are a lot of factors influencing individual heart rate values like genetics, gender, and fitness level

The most common mistake is the use of wrist-based sensors. There are a few issues regarding this. Firstly, wrist sensors usually only use two or three LEDs and this makes measurement less robust. Secondly, these watches jiggle around when you run. Small movements and changes in the position of the sensor drastically affect HR measurement. This is why you see spikes and drops during faster intervals. And finally, there is usually less blood flow passing through the back of the wrist compared to the upper arm or torso. Since LEDs measure how blood passes through tissues and capillaries, lack of blood flow becomes problematic when it comes to HR measurement.

A better alternative is to use chest or arm-based sensors. These prevent the aforementioned problems easily. Other watches like Polar have more LEDs and employ contact sensors to aid in improving accuracy.

It’s difficult to hit the right target

Sometimes the heart rate takes a while to catch up to a particular intensity

Sometimes the heart rate takes a while to catch up to a particular intensity

This is a multifaceted problem that needs to be addressed across different fronts. Firstly, it might be as simple as not having the right zones (as mentioned in the first point above). However, it might also be because the athlete doesn’t allow the HR value to stabilize first. There’s such a thing called heart rate delay. This means that it takes a while for HR to catch up to a particular intensity (compared to speed, pace, or power). This can be seen in HR graphs: a shark’s fin profile is common for intervals because there’s usually a two- to four-minute delay before HR creeps up to a more stable number.

My advice is to not chase the numbers. Instead, hold an effort you think is suitable for the goal and make minor adjustments as you go along. It takes experience and patience but without using power-based training, this is the only way of nailing it.

Don’t chase numbers. Instead, hold an effort you think is suitable for the goal and make minor adjustments as you go along

Another possible reason why it’s hard to hit target values is fatigue. There are two main types of fatigue. The first is muscular fatigue. When your muscles are tired and consequently weak, it’s hard to stress your cardio enough. The weak link is your ability to push and go harder. As a result, your perceived exertion is high but you’re not straining your cardio enough. The solution is simple—rest. Usually, once you rest your body enough, you’ll be hitting those values once again.

However, a larger cause for concern is systemic fatigue. This can also come in two ways. Acute fatigue (and/or dehydration) means your HR goes up rather quickly and results in elevated HR values even for relatively easy intensities. This, in turn, makes it challenging to stay within a lower aerobic zone. Chronic fatigue, on the other hand, is a bigger problem that seems counterintuitive. This type of fatigue results in lower HR values across the board and makes it difficult to hit higher zones (similar to muscular fatigue). If ever you do get to raise your HR, it is unsustainable and is usually succeeded by rapid drops in HR between intervals. These are red flags that point to prolonged overreaching or even overtraining. The solution is to unload, destress, and focus on regenerative workouts.

Heart rate drifts

If you’ve ever noticed that HR increases for a steady effort, you’re not alone. This is a common observation among athletes who take zone training to heart.

To explain this, we need to understand that our body has a limited number of muscle fibers at its disposal. Most of the time, for aerobic zones and longer intervals, it prefers aerobic muscle fibers due to their efficiency and low metabolic cost. As these muscle fibers fatigue, they have to be subbed out for less efficient (more anaerobic) ones. The metabolic cost rises, which results in an increase in carbohydrate expenditure, rising lactate values, and higher heart rate values. This, albeit uncomfortable, can be thought of as part of the growing pains of getting stronger. Over time, as these underutilized fibers gain more experience and aerobic fitness, they become more efficient aerobic fibers.

Let’s take a deep dive into some of the heart rate issues every endurance athlete has probably encountered

Increasing heart rate for a steady effort is a common observation among athletes who take zone training to heart

When people see their HR increase for a steady effort, the common response is to lower intensity so HR goes down. While there is nothing wrong with this and is often the safe way of approaching such a phenomenon, I find it’s good to also hold the increasing HR (as long as the pace or power is the same) for short durations (e.g. towards the end of a set or a workout). Not only does it help convert more aerobic muscle fibers, it also simulates what one would feel towards the end of a segment or race when fatigue starts to set in.

In closing, heart rate is an essential tool in any endurance athlete’s arsenal. It gives us a peek into the state of our physical well-being and fitness. Hopefully, with the help of the topics we discussed here, you will be better equipped to make the right decisions and adjustments in training and racing.

UAAP 85 CTT: UST men secures three&peat; La Salle women regains crown after 2 seasons https://sport-topics.com/uaap-85-ctt-ust-men-secures-three-peat-la-salle-women-regains-crown-after-2-seasons https://sport-topics.com/uaap-85-ctt-ust-men-secures-three-peat-la-salle-women-regains-crown-after-2-seasons University of Santo Tomas annexed its third straight championship in the men’s division of UAAP Collegiate Table Tennis after sweeping first-time finalist Ateneo de Manila University, 2-0, in the championship series, Saturday at the Makati Coliseum.

This is UST’s first title of the season and its 29th championship in the league for the event — its fourth in five seasons.

On the other hand, De La Salle University regained the women’s title after ceding the championship to UST for two seasons, with a 2-0 sweep in the finals series.

The Lady Green Paddlers gave La Salle its first crown in the season — its seventh overall in the event.

Alvin Sevilla kickstarted both ties with wins for the Male Tiger Paddlers after winning both the first singles matches of the two ties.

The senior paddler took care of Blue Paddler Andrew Uy, 11-3, 11-3, and 11-8 in the first tie, before denying rookie Mahendra Cabrido in a marathon in the second, 11-8, 8-11, 11-5, 7-11, 14-12, to put UST on the board at 1-0 in both contests.

Sevilla was hailed as the Men’s MVP.

Al Sanchez and Prince Garcia finished the job for UST in the doubles rubber.

The Thomasian duo won over Zherdel Frasco and Sean Uy, 11-13, 11-5, 12-10, 11-9 to complete the sweep of the first tie, 3-0. They then secured the title after stopping Mark Parman and Sean Uy, 11-5, 11-9, and 11-8.

“Na-retain natin ‘yung championship after two years ng pandemic and this time, three-peat na siya, so talagang overwhelming,” UST men’s head coach Jackson Que said. “Same as before, ‘yung team is talagang buo kami — united and one for God. We are one for our team, one for our family, and one for ourselves.”

Meanwhile, Angel Laude and Kyla Bernaldez were keys for the Lady Green Paddlers in their bid to reclaim the women’s title.

Laude took care of Kaye Encarnacion in the first singles match of the first tie, 11-6, 11-7, 11-4, before Bernaldez clinched the tie, 11-4, 11-4, 11-8, in the third singles rubber, against Julie Anne de Leon. The two then put La Salle to a 2-0 lead in the second tie with Bernaldez over Leigh Villanueva, 12-10, 10-12, 11-7, 11-8, and Laude against Emery Digamon, 11-7, 8-11, 11-3, 11-3.

Mariana Caoile and Jhoana Go then won it all in the second tie with an 11-4, 11-4, 10-12, 11-9 conquest of Ciara Derecho and Sherlyn Gabisay in the doubles match.

La Salle head coach Lauro Crisostomo said, “Yung championship namin against UST is napakahirap. Alam naman natin na yung UST is malaking program and sila yung defending champion eh. So ginawa lang namin at sinabi sa players ko na focus lang, ilabas lang nila lahat ng pinractice namin. Yung skills ilabas lang nila.”

La Salle’s Jannah Romero, who no longer needed to play in the Finals, was crowned the women’s MVP.

On the other hand, Far Eastern University freshman Aizel Mae Rom was the top rookie of the tournament.

UAAP 85 HSTT: DLSZ boys take back&to&back; UST girls take vengeance https://sport-topics.com/uaap-85-hstt-dlsz-boys-take-back-to-back-ust-girls-take-vengeance https://sport-topics.com/uaap-85-hstt-dlsz-boys-take-back-to-back-ust-girls-take-vengeance De La Salle-Santiago Zobel bagged back-to-back championships in the boys’ division of the UAAP High School Table Tennis Tournament after sweeping arch-rival University of Santo Tomas, 2-0, in the championship series, Saturday at the Makati Coliseum.

This is the school’s first title of the season and the third overall in the event.

On the other hand, the Junior Lady Paddlers of UST regained the girls’ tiara after denying reigning champion Zobel a back-to-back with a similar 2-0 sweep in the championship round.

The championship is the first for UST High School this season and the third since UAAP Season 80.

Troy Docto provided the crucial wins for the Junior Green Paddlers in the two ties against UST to steer his squad to the title.

He took down Jebb Datahan in the first tie’s second singles rubber, 11-5, 11-6, 9-11, 11-8 to level that tie, before the eventual Most Valuable Player stopped Jhiven Clamucha, 11-6, 6-11, 11-5, 7-11, 11-5, for another equalizer in the second.

Andrei Villacruel then got the job done in the third singles match of the second tie against Lawrence Melendrez, 11-7, 11-7, 11-7, to secure the championship for Zobel.

“Mahirap kasi li-lima lang talaga yung players namin. Para ma-complete yung eight persons sa lineup, we need na kumuha dun sa mga homegrown namin against dun sa mga opponents namin na complete sila sa mga skilled players,” DLSZ head coach Jun Glorioso admitted.

“Anyway, it is all about the pagpasok ng tao eh. Medyo sinuwerte and nag-work naman yung laban. Hindi na nagpabaya yung lima naming tao para manalo. Yun po yung naging key,” he continued.

Clamucha was named Rookie of the Year for the boys’ division.UAAP-S85-TT-Girls-Div-Champions-UST-2 UAAP 85 HSTT: DLSZ boys take back-to-back; UST girls take vengeance DLSU News Table Tennis UAAP UST  - philippine sports news

Eventual ROY-MVP Althea Gudes started and finished the title run for the UST girls after taking the first singles match of the first tie and the championship-clinching win in the second.

Gudes opened the showdown with an 11-3, 11-5, 11-2 domination of Samarah Buan. She then pushed her squad to a return to the throne, winning past Chrishein Santillan, 11-4, 11-6, 12-10, to close out the season in style.

J-An Sanchez earlier needed to carry the Junior Lady Paddlers to a marathon 11-6, 9-11, 11-5, 6-11, 13-11 conquest of Althea Salvador for the 1-0 lead in the series.

UST head coach Lorinda Wadjad said, “Actually, they tried their best. We already anticipated that La Salle has good players naman. Ang advantage lang namin, we are complete. That’s why we anticipated and tried to fight and finish at 3-0 at least para wala na silang kaba.”

Rookie Mahendra Cabrido opened the day for Ateneo with a sweep of Paolo Monforte, 11-5, 11-5, 11-8, in the first singles match before Andrew Uy gave his squad a 2-0 lead with an 8-11, 11-7, 11-4, 7-11, 11-4 marathon against Jed Villaviray.

The Soaring Falcons earlier denied tournament host De La Salle University a semifinals berth, taking a huge 3-2 come-from-behind win in their stepladder first-round meeting.

Corrine Cartera then dominated Ma. Elira Docto in the first two games of the deciding single match at 11-4, 11-6, before outlasting the Blue Eagle in the third game at 15-13, to hand UST a crack at defending its title.

The Lady Paddlers earlier took down rivals Far Eastern University in the first round at 3-1 with Derecho getting the tie-clinching win, 11-4, 8-11, 11-5, 11-7, against Aizel Rom to move up the ladder against Ateneo.

The rookie took down Adamson’s Reinniel Badillo in a marathon 11-6, 6-11, 5-11, 11-8, 14-12 win in another decider after the two schools went level at two matches apiece after the first four.

In triathlon training, is Zone 3 really that bad? https://sport-topics.com/in-triathlon-training-is-zone-3-really-that-bad https://sport-topics.com/in-triathlon-training-is-zone-3-really-that-bad Sometimes dubbed the ‘gray zone,’ the right Zone 3 training might be more beneficial than you think

No man’s land.

This is often used to describe Zone 3 or the gap between Zones 2 and 4 in the Coggan 7-Zone Model. In essence, this is an effort that is neither easy nor hard. Some claim it’s too hard to sustain significant aerobic volume in and too easy to elicit significant adaptations. However, from my own personal experience as an athlete and coach, this is not necessarily the case.

This line of thinking stemmed from the 80/20 rule or an adaptation of the Pareto principle. In theory, 80 percent of training should be done easy while 20 percent should be performed at a high intensity. While it seems logical, what most fail to realize is that this is merely observational analysis of the training intensity distribution done by elite athletes. 

Contrary to the old school mentality that Zone 3 should be avoided, there are huge gains to be acquired from it—when done right of course

Given that they train upwards of 20 to 30 hours a week, it’s expected that most miles are done easy. This is so they could perform the really hard work well. If they were to train too hard on easy days, they would go into key sessions tired. On top of this, studies performed were usually on professional cyclists.

To get an idea about the type of racing they do, in simple terms, either they’re going easy while drafting the peloton or going really hard in a breakaway or attack. Nobody really stays in the middle for extended periods.

Now what about us? Does this still apply for regular age groupers who don’t have a lot of time to train? I’d say not necessarily.

First of all, let me point out that volume is still important, especially early on in the training program. This base period is where aerobic training needs to be emphasized. However, once an acceptable level of fitness has been established, Zone 3 work is actually beneficial. Contrary to the old school mentality that it should be avoided, there are huge gains to be acquired from it—when done right of course.

Zone 3, for most age group athletes, is actually similar to race pace in Olympic and Ironman 70.3 triathlons

Develops muscular endurance 

Zone 3 work helps develop muscular endurance. This intensity puts a lot of strain on muscles and it can be sustained for a longer period. The result? Muscle fibers get stronger and are able to sustain this for extended durations. This compliments aerobic fitness during races since it allows your legs to keep going even when you’re already tired.

Negates aerobic decoupling

Have you ever noticed that when you hold a steady effort for a long time, your heart rate stabilizes at first but gradually increases as fatigue sets in? This is called “aerobic decoupling” and usually happens because your aerobic muscle fibers get tired and the body starts to recruit less efficient anaerobic ones. By hitting Zone 3, you are accelerating the point at which this happens, causing a physiological aerobic adaptation. Of course this can also be done in Zone 2 but more volume is needed to do so.

By hitting Zone 3, you are accelerating the point at which “aerobic decoupling” happens, causing a physiological aerobic adaptation

Mimics race-specific intensity

Lastly, Zone 3, for most age group athletes, is actually similar to race pace in Olympic and Ironman 70.3 triathlons. Hence, training in Zone 3 is actually specified to the event they’re preparing for. Holding Zone 3 allows you to execute the race better with less fatigue and unfamiliarity.

As you can see, Zone 3 isn’t all that bad. It all depends on your own specific needs and goals. While it might not necessarily work for a lot of pros and long-distance athletes due to the amount of volume they need to sustain, it can work for a lot of time-crunched athletes who race short to middle distance races. 

Just remember, it’s all about putting it to good use in terms of structure, execution, and timing.

Kenyans sweep New York City Marathon in punishing heat https://sport-topics.com/kenyans-sweep-new-york-city-marathon-in-punishing-heat https://sport-topics.com/kenyans-sweep-new-york-city-marathon-in-punishing-heat Evans Chebet’s New York City Marathon win completes a Kenyan sweep of the six men’s world marathon majors in 2022

New York (Reuters) – Kenyans Evans Chebet and Sharon Lokedi survived brutal heat and humidity to win the New York City Marathons on Sunday after Brazilian Daniel Do Nascimento collapsed during the race.

Do Nascimento set a blistering pace with a roughly two-minute lead around the halfway point but after mile 20 staggered forward and collapsed, stunning onlookers as police officers ran to assist him. Race officials later said he was okay and had not been taken to hospital.

“I was promptly attended by the race medical crew and I can assure you I’m already recovered,” Do Nascimento wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately sometimes things don’t work out as we were hoping and planning.”

Chebet, who won in Boston this year, had accelerated around mile 15 and overcame obvious fatigue to produce a final surge to cross the finish in 2:08:41, crumpling to the ground and rolling on to his back. Ethiopian Shura Kitata finished second in 2:08:54 and Dutchman Abdi Nageeye took third.

“He said it was hard for him to race especially because it was hot,” Evans Chebet’s interpreter told reporters

“He said it was hard for him to race especially because it was hot,” Chebet’s interpreter told reporters. His win completes a Kenyan sweep of the six men’s world marathon majors in 2022.

Lokedi, making her marathon debut, stayed with the leading pack before pulling away in the final stages to win in 2:23:23. Israeli Lonah Chemtai Salpeter finished second in 2:23:30 and world champion Gotytom Gebreslase of Ethiopia took third.

“I’m out of words, I’m really excited,” said Lokedi, the eighth competitor to win the New York race in a marathon debut. “I’m just so happy that I did it here.”

The 28-year-old said she had no expectations that she would win the race and would consult her coach before deciding on another marathon. “I just wanted go and put myself in it and see where I’ll end up,” she told reporters. “Halfway through I felt really good.”

The year’s final marathon major was back at full capacity for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, with some 50,000 competitors hitting the streets and thousands of people congregating along the course to cheer.

The normally crisp and mild New York autumn conditions were replaced by heat hovering around 72 degrees Fahrenheit (22.2 Celsius), among the hottest conditions in the race’s history.

Swiss Marcel Hug had no issues collecting a New York record-tying fifth men’s wheelchair title, establishing a nearly two-minute lead by the 25-kilometer mark before breaking the tape in a course record 1:25:26 to take his fifth major title of 2022.

American Susannah Scaroni produced the fastest-ever time through the five boroughs on the women’s side, winning her second wheelchair major in 1:42:43.

RIP Patrick “RunningShield” Concepcion https://sport-topics.com/rip-patrick-runningshield-concepcion https://sport-topics.com/rip-patrick-runningshield-concepcion

Today, Filipino running icon and my dearest friend, Patrick “RunningShield” Concepcion, passed away. He was the epitome of a real runner – self-effacing, humble, and kind. You would always just see him swiftly, lightly running by with a quick wave and his big smile. To me, he’ll always be running. RIP PatCon. You will be missed.

Reposting an interview with brothers, Patrick and Ton Concepcion, from March 2009 with edits:

——————————–

With the The Condura Run drawing near, it was imperative that I featured running brothers, Patrick and Ton Concepcion, the men behind what is expected to be one of the best races to ever hit Manila…

1

When did you start running?  How did you get into the sport?

PATRICK: I started running May. 30, 1980 in Vancouver Canada. I was a fat “pig” weighing in at 220lbs.  The reason I started running is NOT to lose weight but simply because I enjoyed running. When I took  my first running step I knew I was hooked. It gave me great pleasure a sense of freedom and confidence. The weight just melted away as I continued running on a daily basis. Now my weight is down to 133lbs.

HappyRun09-03433xxx

TON: My brother Patrick inspired me to run as a kid. I saw how much he loved the sport and how he transformed from a “fatrick” to a “thinrick”.

I started running again before i turned 30. I had been married for 6 years and I gained 30 pounds with my wife and mother in law’s cooking.  I wanted to be in the best shape i could before i turned 40.

I remember I was so out of shape that i could not even run 1km. Each step though took me farther and every run ended with such a profound sense of accomplishment. My first 10km race was such a thrill that I even emailed my dad what a great experience it was. It was truly fantastic to be running with a sea of humanity who share your passion.

This passion ultimately made my join countless of 10k races and doing the unthinkable…joining 5 marathons in 14 months!.

Do any other members of your family run or are interested in starting?

PATRICK: My father (Raul T. Concepcion) is the original runner in the family. My father is the greatest influence in my running Life. I remember when I was a young age of 7. That was the year 1971, I would see my father run around the village in Forbes Park to do his usual 5km run.  and sometimes I would join him if I could but only for 200 meters. I remember him lacing up his Bata – Brand running shoes. (Nike, Asics, Adidas etc. was not available in the Philippine at that time) . Up to this day it is still very clear in my memory. At present, my father still does a little jogging in his treadmill. He is still is very strong at the age of 77.

TON: There are those that are seriously into running like Patrick, my brother in law Jimmyton Araneta who is a full ironman and myself.

My wife, Karen, also runs but every time she get up to 7km she gets pregnant (haha) we are now expecting our 5th child.

But last year’s Condura run created a “running boom” within the Concepcion clan. In fact there are 30 or so family members joining the Condura run this year.

Then, there is my dad who used to run a lot when he was younger. During last year’s run, he fell because the road was uneven and ended up with a nasty cut on his eye that had to be stitched. But despite this he refused any medical help and still ran to the finish line all bloodied and bruised. What a fighter he truly is. He truly is the Condura “durable” man.

What do you enjoy most about running?  

PATRICK: Running is something I enjoy doing. I believe it moulds your character to be a better person. Running makes me feel unique. It gives me confidence and I feel alive. When I run, I run NOT for others but for myself.  “It is a time for me and my God to connect.”

P7140198[2]

TON: It’s the best way to de-stress. It’s like I pressed a reset button in my mind after every run and I suddenly feel great again.  I feel very calm and peaceful. It’s almost like a spiritual experience.  Most of my best ideas come from running.

Can you share with us your weekly training program?  Do you train together?

PATRICK: I average at least 75 – 85 km/wk. Saturday is my long run day usually about 21 – 25km. Depending on how I feel. I would also incorporate 1 day a week of speed and tempo run. I usually have 1 or 2 days rest in a week. Wed is usually my rest day. While Sunday is my Race Day.

I don’t get to run with Ton because I run in the morning around 4.30am and Ton is usually an evening runner. And because I reside in Alabang and he resides in Makati it’s difficult to meet.

TON: When i’m training for a 42km marathon, I follow the FIRST training program which I picked up from Runners World magazine. It follows a “less is more” marathon training philosophy spread over 4 months with only 3 runs a week. Tuesday is speed work, Thursday is tempo and Saturday is a long run. Its perfect training program for those who have a hectic work schedule. I also lift weights to strengthen my core and my legs which i find very effective in making you run your best and to prevent injury.

I don’t train with Pat because he will find me too slow.

What was the most memorable race for you?

PATRICK:  The most memorable race has to be the Vancouver International Marathon 1983 I finished in 3hrs. 52mins and 20 sec. The 2nd most memorable race has to be the Philippine “Pasig” Marathon 2008 because after 24 years I did my 2nd marathon.

TON: Every marathon is like a baby and they are all special. But the New York City marathon would be on top of the list. It felt fantastic running along side 39, 000 people and being cheered by the crowds of over a million people throughout the entire 42km distance. You will truly feel like an olympian for the day.

A close second is Lake Kawaguchi in Japan. My breath was taken away with the beauty of running in and out of a forest with resplendent golden leaves in its full autumn glory and by a placid lake with Mount Fuji as the back drop.

japan tc copy

What was the toughest race?

PATRICK: Philippine “Pasig “Marathon 2008. The reason is because at the last 10km of the race I was really hurting. My Legs wanted to quit. I was cramping all over but my heart and soul made me continue. When I reach the finish line I couldn’t help but cry because i felt an accomplishment as a runner as a person. “Sometimes the moment that challenges us the most defines us” – Joan Benoit Samuelson

TON: My second milo marathon in July 2007 was the toughest because of the heat. I remember cramping really bad at 35km. But I refused to give up. So you just learn how to run with a cramp. 20 feet before the finish line, every single muscle in both legs cramped and locked up! I could not move! I said oh no this is truly a case of so near and yet so far. It was really embarrassing to stop before crossing the finish line instead of sprinting towards it. Luckily the cramp released its vice like grip on my legs and I was able to walk the remaining steps to complete my 3rd marathon.

What advice can you give to those who will make Condura their first race ever?

PATRICK:  Just enjoy the race. “The Miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start” – John “The Penguin Runner” Bingham.

TON: Be proud that you actually woke up early to join the race.  Have a light breakfast and pray that you accomplish all your bathroom duties before you leave the house. Play your best tunes. Run at your own pace. Suck in the energy that is all around you. Enjoy the experience and treat yourself to a fantastic breakfast after the run then have a good sleep!

What is your dream race?

PATRICK: Hummmmm my dream Race is a Manila to Baguio City Ultra Race. We start in Quirino Grandstand, Manila and the finish line will be in Burnham Park, Baguio City.  It will be an Individual run not a Team relay race. That for me is the test of ultimate endurance. “Running is a head game, it is more mental than physical.” 

TON: to run the Paris marathon

QUICK QUESTIONS:

Favorite shoe…

PATRICK: Asics 2020 and 2030 / Nike Lunar

TON: For 10k and 16km races I use Nike Lunars. They are very light and provide excellent cushioning. For the marathon, I use the Asics Kinsei 1

Power song…

PATRICK: Music? I don’t run with music. I can’t enjoy my run with music. Music distracts me. I like the peace and quiet when I run.

TON: The theme from Rocky and “Don’t give up” by Chicane. But these days I prefer to run without music.

Best running accessory…

PATRICK: Garmin 205

TON: Garmin 405

Solo or  group…

PATRICK: Always solo. Running is a time for me with God. I’m not a good running Partner, If I run with a group I always think about how the group is doing ( am I running to fast…to slow… do I talk to much……etc.) total distraction from what running enjoyment is.

TON: mostly solo. Running is often the only time I have alone.  However, I do enjoy running with my best friends and R40- runners for others

Favorite race distance…

PATRICK: any distance between 10k and 42k.

TON: 42km – would you believe?

10k PR

PATRICK: 41 min. 10 sec.  UBC (University of British Columbia), 1983

TON: 51 min. 37 sec.

Marathon PR

PATRICK:  Vancouver International Marathon 1983 I finished in 3 hrs. 52 mins and 20 sec.

TON: 4 hrs. and 49 min.

Marine life in El Nido – The Frogfish https://sport-topics.com/marine-life-in-el-nido-the-frogfish https://sport-topics.com/marine-life-in-el-nido-the-frogfish

The Frogfish - Marine Life in El Nido

 The Frogfish is probably one of the most photographed fish in the world. DM’s are always in search of this well camouflaged fish.

Marine life in El Nido - The Frogfish

The weird looking frogfish is perfect for Digital Underwater Photography as they often don’t move and can stay motionless for hours. If you sign up for the PADI Digital Underwater Photography Specialty course you will learn how to make nice shots of these fascinating creatures. But first you will need to find one!

Genus: Antennariidae
Depth: up to depths of 100 meters but some of the species can live in the deep sea were natural light is totally absent.
Diet: Carnivore
Size: can go from a few mm up to 30 centimeters.
Lifespan: up to 20 years.

The Frogfish - Weird and wonderful.

Frogfish rarely swim but rather walk on the seafloor using their modified pectoral fins. This is also one of the reasons why they are called frogfish. They seem to jump or bounce like frogs.

He is an ambush predator which hunts their prey by using the element of surprise. Once the prey is close enough they will swallow it in a blink of an eye (attack lasts 6 milliseconds). To attract their prey they will use a small lure on its head to attract other fish. This lure can regenerate in case of damage.

They can swallow prey that is 2 times bigger than themselves thanks to the ability to expand the mouth 12 times its normal size. They do not have teeth and they swallows their prey in one piece.

The Frogfish - Where and when can we see them in El Nido?

They can be almost find on any of our reefs but you need to have the eye for it. More can be spotted when the water is a bit colder. During the month of December, January and February the water temperature can drop down to 26 degree which seems the time we see more of them. Especially the hairy frogfish seems to come out.

One of best dive sites for these fish is our dive site Paradise beach. This dive site has a large sandy area with lots of rubble. The perfect hunting ground for these amazing creatures.

The Frogfish - Different species - From tiny to Giant and from ugly to beauty.

There are around 50 species with still new species to be discovered each with their own characteristics, size and colors. Let us give you a short list of our favorites.

The Painted Frogfish:

is probably one of the most common and can be find in many different colors and has been spotted on most of our dive sites.

The Hairy Frogfish:

doesn’t really have hair but these are adapted skin extremities which help to camouflage the fish and attract prey. We sometimes find this kind on our dive site Paradise Beach.

Hairy frogfish el nido

The Giant frogfish:

is the largest and is therefore easier found by divers compared to its smaller brothers and sisters.

The Sargassum frogfish:

can sometimes be found clinging on and living on one of our mooring lines. They easily blend in with the algae and plants growing on the line.

How to get to El Nido? https://sport-topics.com/how-to-get-to-el-nido https://sport-topics.com/how-to-get-to-el-nido

How to get to El Nido

There are different ways of getting to El Nido. You can travel by air, land or sea depending on your personal preferences.

Direct flights to El Nido

Air Swift is the company that offers daily flights to El Nido from Manila, Cebu, Bohol, Coron, Boracay.

Air Swift  is the charter company for El Nido Resorts.  This is definitely the fastest and most direct way to get to El Nido. The flights land directly at Lio airport, located about 4 kilometers from midtown. At the airport tricycle drivers will be waiting for you and it will take around 20 minutes to get into town. You can also check with your accommodation if they can organize a pick up for you.

Flying into Puerto Princesa followed by van travel to El Nido

Land travel from Puerto Princessa to El Nido is the second way to reach El Nido and probably the cheaper option but also the longest. First you have fly to Puerto Princessa Airport in Central Palawan. Its international airport receives regular flights from Manila and Cebu via Cebu Pacific , Philippines  airlinesPalexpress or AirAsia and other local carriers. 

Overnight in Puerto Princesa

If you want to stay overnight in Puerto Princessa, we advise the Hibiscus Garden Inn. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden.

Another option, out of town: Balay Tuko Garden Inn. The resort is designed in a modern style blended with local design. Balay Tuko offers a wide variety of rooms, a large indoor swimming pool amidst a tropical garden.

From Puerto Princessa, you still have to cover about 220 kilometers of highway to get to El Nido. To do so you have different options:

VAN

The trip from Puerto Princessa to El Nido usually takes 5 to 6 hours. There are a lot of companies that leave daily from the Puerto Princessa airport. Vans will be waiting for you at the terminal.

CAR or motorbike rental 

If you want to travel at your own pace. Taking a road trip is a fantastic way to discover the Northern part of Palawan. All around Puerto Princessa are shops that offer weekly or monthly rental. You can stop over at villages and enjoy the rustic view of the countryside. Why not visiting Tay-Tay and the Spanish fortress ruins, have lunch at Pho Hoa Vietnamese Noodle House in Roxas or chill out in Port Barton.

There’s not much parking in El Nido! Make sure your accommodation has a parking lot.

BUS

If the previous options don’t suit you, you might like taking a bus. It is a good way to share your trip with locals and get good tips. Two companies do the Puerto Princesa – El Nido route every day. We highly recommend Cherry Bus. This company is more comfortable than regular vans and the price is lower. It takes about 6-8 hours, depending on how many stopovers the bus will take on the way. Try to catch those equipped with Air-con and more spacious seats (lazyboy). Be aware that in Puerto Princesa the bus terminal is located 2 km away from the airport outside town. You will have to deal with tricycle drivers to get there. 

BOAT

Coron – El Nido or El Nido – Coron is operated by fast craft company Montenegro Shipping Lines and Bunso Ferry.

The Montenegro Fast Ferry – El Nido – Coron: The fare is around Php 2640 one way.

  • Every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:00 AM

The Montenegro Fast Ferry – Coron – El Nido:

  • Every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12:00 NN

The Bunso Ferry – El Nido – Coron: The fare is around Php 2,200 one way.  

 

  • Every Wednesday at 7:00 AM

The Bunso Ferry – Coron – El Nido

  • Every Thursday at 7:00 AM

Tao Philippines:

If you have time, have a look at Tao Philippines website. Their expeditions explore the undeveloped islands of the Northern Palawan province. It’s an amazing experience and you’ll discover the most beautiful beaches and islands of Palawan.

1st Empire Angkor Marathon 2014 Race Report https://sport-topics.com/1st-empire-angkor-marathon-2014-race-report https://sport-topics.com/1st-empire-angkor-marathon-2014-race-report Dreams Do Come True

I have wanted to go to Cambodia from the time when I saw the movies Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones were filmed there.  Well, I do appreciate history and reading books will take you to endless places in the world.  And Cambodia is one of those places. 

TEMPLE RUN
17 Aug. 2014
Siem Reap, Cambodia 

Race Registration and Hotel Booking

A window of opportunity finally came early this year.  When I found out that a full marathon will be staged (aside from its annual half marathon event) where start/finish arch would be at the famous Angkor Wat Temple, I found myself registering for the marathon.  What a beautiful way to see the place than by running.

  Just like in my previous trips, I waited for any discount or seat sale early this year.  Though the race event organizers partnered with the hotels in Cambodia, I found them somewhat beyond my budget.  Then I remembered the brochure that was given to me by one of the speakers at a seminar I attended in October 2013.  I visited the web site of that guest house and found the room rates quite reasonable.  Airfare.  Check.  Race registration fee.  Check.  Accommodation.  Check. 

All set, except one—I couldn’t find anyone else to come with me on such short notice. Ellen aka Kelcy and Jinoe, Takbo.ph blog owner came into my mind.  You see, the three of us have run the Borneo International Marathon in 2012.  But Ellen was busy lately.  I tried contacting Jinoe.  Surprisingly, when I told him about it, he got interested that he booked his own flight, arranged for his accommodation, and registered for the marathon instantly. 

The next concern was who would claim our race kits considering our flight would leave the night before the race and claiming of race kits would start three days before race day?  I tried to seek assistance from the hotel staff.   Though they are willing to assist us, I was much keener if someone we knew would claim it for us. 

Thanks to Jinoe’s assistance on this.  Just two weeks before the race, Jinoe informed me that a fellow runner would claim the race kits for us as she would be in Siem Reap days earlier.  Much thanks to Janine for claiming the race kits, leaving these at the front desk, and ensuring we had a ride via tuk-tuk* from the guest house to the event venue.  She also gave each one of us a Philippine flag pin.  Jinoe on the other hand, gave us a free T-shirt printed with RUN.PH on the front to be worn after the race.  Thank you for the shirt, Jinoe.

On Marathon Training

Each race is different, so it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting into.  Before my previous well-prepared marathons (Condura Skyway in 2009 was my best marathon time so far), I ran respectable times.  Not really fast, but at least within the goal I set for myself. 

In a desperate effort to get race-fit, I tried to do long slow distances on Sundays, do a-once-a-week training session with my running coach, running three times on weekdays after work, and did extra pool laps into my twice-a-week swimming routine.  However, training was disrupted with complimentary races along the way.  I treated each race as part of the preparation.  The trail running in Nuvali two months ago helped a lot.  That was my longest run prior to another marathon, the Milo Marathon. 

As previously mentioned in my blog post, the Milo Marathon was not really included in the list of races that I would do this year, but since the brand is celebrating another milestone, I so wanted to be one of the runners in this race.  Two running coaches have suggested to me to take it easy on the race and to focus more on the Empire Angkor Marathon, which was the proper way of doing things anyway. 

The game plan was to just run Milo Marathon up to 30KM or something then to DNF, or did not finish, or to finish it and walk the last 10 kilometers.  If I get fast in this, performance wise, marathon running in Cambodia might not be good.  They were right. 

In marathon running, it takes two to three weeks for the body to recover from running a marathon, hence, running two marathons in a year is ideal.  Milo Marathon was scheduled on July 27 while Empire Angkor Wat on August 17.  That’s roughly three weeks before race day for Empire Angkor Marathon.  I didn’t want to DNF Milo.   When I had the GO signal from my running coach, I was vent on finishing these races within the cut-off time of six hours.  Also, these events are both IAAF and AIMS certified races.  And I know how strict IAAF and AIMS in implementing the deadline.  

The week before Empire Angkor Wat, I had to race in an aquathlon (a two-stage race involving swimming and running).  Though I felt happy to have won third place, but deep inside I was apprehensive how I would fare the next weekend.  “Stick to the game plan.” That was my mantra.  Based on my readings, the route is mostly flat so I thought I might be able to do the finish time I set for myself. 

Departure and Arrival

We were supposed to leave at 7:45 PM, but flight got delayed.  By the way, there is a one-hour time difference between Cambodiaand the Philippines (Philippines is ahead by 1 hour).  We arrived at Siem Reap Airport minutes past 11:00 PM (Philippine Time).   Race would be at 4:30AM (Cambodiatime), that means we only had more or less three hours of sleep. 

Dead tired, I was able to sleep right away.  A light rap on my door woke me up.  I thought it was just my imagination.  So I closed my eyes again.  Then another soft knocks followed.  Got up to check what it was.  It was Jinoe all geared and ready for the race.  Janine, too!  Yikes!  It was the fastest shower and change of clothes I had done!  Sad though that I wasn’t able to eat or drink something hot prior to the race.  Our tuk-tuk driver was ready and waiting for us as early as 2:00 AM. 

The drive from the guest house to the event venue took five or seven minutes on a route with a line of trees running along each side. 

Race Venue, Gun Start, and Race Route

We all left our stuff with our able and supportive tuk-tuk driver Cheang.  As we walked towards the Start arch, we heard the emcee announcing all the countries participating in the said race.  I couldn’t be more proud in that moment when we saw our flag being displayed alongside the other countries, and heard “Philippines!” announced by the emcee. We were making history here!  Three of us.  But wait.  There were two more runners from our country.  That would be five of us doing the full marathon! Great!  

I could feel the excitement of the crowd.  Roaming my eyes, I couldn’t believe what I just witnessed.  Welcome messages from the Guest of Honor and VIPs followed by the lighting of the torch.  I couldn’t see the entrance of the Angkor Wat Temple as it was too dark.  Then the countdown began.  I switched on my Garmin watch when they fired the start gun. 

The course is relatively flat with gradual ascent and ancient trees along the route.  Runners could take photos during the race as there are ancient temples along the course. 

Portion of the race passed through the city then back to the world heritage area. Runners would run asphalt roads (at times riddled with cracks) and in other areas some concrete roads. 

I started to feel fatigued so early at KM22. On my way back, after the turnaround point at KM25, there were school children along the way excitedly doing high fives with the runners.  Their smiling faces and cheers made the run much more enjoyable.  

While running, my watch did not match the official kilometer markers.  I knew I only had almost four kilometers to go, but the distance markers were telling me a different distance.  It was at this time that Jinoe was able to catch up with me.  Knowing he’s a race organizer himself, I checked if in his watch it was more or less the same as the distance markers.  True enough, his watch measured extra kilometers.  Reality is we need to beat the deadline.  I knew I was already done with my marathon at a certain point.   But at the time the only choice was to keep running at a pace just enough to beat cut-off time. 

The sun was burning hot and I could feel the sun burning on my skin.  I could no longer appreciate the ruins as I passed by.  I think I actually sprinted the last KM to the finish line.  Two lady foreigners were cheering on me and giving me the thumbs up sign.  I shouted at them, “Did I make it?”  Smiling back at me, both nodded their heads.   “I did it!  Thank you, Lord.” 

I remember after crossing the finish line, I was a bit emotional that I almost cried.  Whew! That was close! I received my finisher’s medal and got some drinks.  I was at the stretching area with some runners … thinking of what had just happened.  I asked them how long the distance was.  They said in their watch it measured 46 kilometers.  “Whoa!” I thought, “Four more kilometers to go and it’s already an ultramarathon.”  My watch registered a distance of 44.37 kilometers.  

Overall, it was still a great run.  I enjoyed myself although I did not do as well as I hoped.  Based on the results, there were other participants from the Philippines. 

Terrace of the Leper King

Approximately five kilometers from the Finish Line. Jinoe, who was running also at the other side of the road called my name when this photo was taken.  The background is called the Terrace of the Leper King just north of the Terrace of the Elephants Angkor Thom, built at end of 12th century by king Jayavarman VII.

Remaining Days

The day after the race, we spent the day visiting the Angkor Archaeological Park considered a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

The next day, our last day in Siem Reap, we explored the area on a road bicycling and visiting AngkorNational Museum, a perfect way to end my first visit in Cambodia.

Thank You

Would just like to thank Queenie for the support and cheers even if she was not able to come with us.  Thank you also to Janine for claiming the race kits, the photos taken after the race, for touring us on our first day in Siem Reap, and for ensuring we get a good tuk-tuk driver.  I enjoyed much your and your sister’s company while celebrating our victory over lunch on Sunday.  Thank you also to the guest house owners.  You guys made our stay worthwhile (will blog about this, too, some other time).  To God be the glory!

Starting over and relaunching the blog https://sport-topics.com/starting-over-and-relaunching-the-blog https://sport-topics.com/starting-over-and-relaunching-the-blog It took me this long, way too long, if I’m honest. The truth of the matter is, it’s an experience that I don’t want any fellow blogger to go through. The blog you’re seeing right now is more like almost 5 months  in the making, as I had to tap the expertise of fellow running bloggers Running Atom and Running Pinoy to guide me in appreciating the language of information technology, the nitty-gritty of web hosting, and anything that comes about it.

As I made up my mind to relaunch this blog, things were in a roll—from migrating old posts from BlogSpot to WordPress (566 of them), deleting those which are no longer relevant, installing a new WordPress theme, upgrading to a better DNS server, renewing my dotPH domain subscription to editing old posts (still a work in progress by the way)—and voilà, welcome to a newer version of the blog.

Yes, I lost the contents and posts indexed years ago (covering portion of 2014 to 2020) from my old blog and previous hosting account for reasons beyond my control, but thankfully, the domain is still active and ownership is still with me. There were attempts to get back-up copies, yet these too, turned out to be futile. Sometimes letting go is the only way to move forward.

I initially finished tweaking things a little bit and am planning to do minor pivoting of this blog to make way for change and write compelling content. Given new format, I’d love to know what you think, or if you have any requests fire away!

It feels good to be back already!

Shaq said it best: I’m tired of hearing about money, money, money, money, money. I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi, wear Reebok.

Always the funny man, the 7-foot-1 member of the NBA’s 75 greatest players list is correct. 

Sport is entertainment and entertainment means dollars.

The Philippine Basketball Association right now is in a quandary. Founded in 1975, the PBA is Asia’s oldest pro basketball league and ranks as the world’s second oldest (next to the NBA, born in 1946).

The PBA has a money problem. Sure, the league has 12 ballclubs owned by the nation’s largest conglomerates. But, no thanks to the PBA’s salary cap, some are not being paid enough which leads to the exodus.

Kiefer Ravena. His younger brother Thirdy. There’s Kobe Paras. How about Ray Parks, Jr.? Then the Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan. There’s Kemark Carino and the 6-foot-4 Fil-Am who was supposedly one of the hottest prospects for the PBA, Dwight Ramos.

These eight athletes are no ordinary names. Many of them are UAAP heartthrobs with a torrent of social media followers. Kobe Paras, the son of Benjie, is a superstar-in-the-making. All eight of them are not playing in Manila but in Japan.

It’s called the B.League and, while founded recently in 2016, it has aggressively recruited big names from the international market.

Simply put, the Japanese pro league is offering our stars (in particular, the rookies) double or triple the money they’d earn if they were to suit up as an NLEX or Barangay Ginebra point guard.

Take Thirdy Ravena and Ray Parks Jr. They are two-time UAAP MVPs whom we’d love to see playing in Araneta Coliseum or the MOA. Instead, the Iloilo-born Ravena is not playing for the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters but for Japan B League’s San-en NeoPhoenix. 

Bobby Ray Parks played with Blackwater Elite and TNT in Manila before heading north to suit up for the Nagoya Diamond Dolphins.

Long-term, this exodus of top caliber talent will continue to be a PBA problem. The world has turned borderless. This pandemic has changed our outlook — even how we can quickly buy a product from China via Lazada or Shopee and have it delivered in our doorstep on 12 days.

Same with our players. While before they were stuck in the Philippine archipelago, who would stop the pro leagues from South Korea or China from offering P1 million per month when SMB can only give P450,000?

The other day, I heard NBA Commissioner Adam Silver say that 25% of the NBA players are not native Americans. One out of every four in the NBA today is a foreigner. Globalization has created a borderless planet. There is no preventing our talents from leaving and going to our Asian neighbors or Europe or America. 

Money, money, money. The PBA ballclubs have to offer more. The problem is, I’m unsure about the 46-year-old league. And if the PBA’s reputation and following diminishes, so will the incentive of companies to spend more.

It’s all about content. Is the PBA able to continue offering entertainment that excites and energizes?

Like Father, Like Son https://sport-topics.com/like-father-like-son https://sport-topics.com/like-father-like-son
(Photo by Jay LaPrete/AP)

LeBron Raymone “Bronny” James Jr. is one of the most famous sons on Planet Earth. He is the first born to the King and heir to the throne.

Bronny turned 17 last Oct. 6. Now a sophomore at Sierra Canyon School in L.A., he plays point guard and has set his sights on achieving a dream that’s never been done before: For father-and-son to play together in the NBA.

Sure, there have been plenty of fathers and sons in the league.

Before Klay Thompson, there was his dad Mychal, who helped the Lakers win two NBA crowns. Kobe Bryant’s dad Joe was a 6-foot-9 power forward who played from 1975 to 1991. His son would join the NBA five years after he retired. Bill and Luke Walton stood tall. You have Rick Barry and his sons Brent, Jon and Drew. And, of course, Dell, Stephen and Seth Curry.

But while the NBA, founded 75 years ago, has witnessed many such combos before, never has it seen one where both played at the same time.

Baseball has Ken Griffey Jr. and Sr. playing together for the Seattle Mariners in 1990. But never in the NBA.

Not until LeBron and Bronny.

This may happen as early as 2023 or 2024 after Bronny graduates from high school. Two years from now, Bronny will be 19 and his dad will be 39. (Bronny, the eldest, has two other brothers and a sister.)

Will James and James don the Lakers jerseys? That’s the plan, I’m sure, according to LBJ.

“That would be an unbelievable moment not only for myself but for my family, for everybody,” said LeBron, in a 2018 interview. “That would be pretty dang cool if I were able to be on the NBA floor with my oldest son.”

What are the odds of this happening? Very, very high. 

Barring a (knock-on-wood) career-ending injury, LeBron is expected to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the league’s all-time leading scorer and play until he’s 40. With Bronny, it’s certain that he’ll turn pro. This early, top collegiate teams (Kentucky, UCLA) are eager to recruit him.

And wouldn’t James & James be the sporting world’s biggest story? LeBron dribbles the ball for a fast break as he throws it up for an alley-oop by Bronny!

The question is: Is Bronny really that good or is it just hype?

LeBron (age 17), left; Bronny (age 16) and his friends

Wherever Bronny plays, fans ask for his autograph. ESPN broadcasts his team’s games. Bronny has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Gyms are packed to watch the 6-foot-3 guard with the number “0.”

I’ve watched YouTube footages of Bronny and he’s quick and athletic. He made his first dunk at the age of 13! Bronny got the brawny genes of his dad.

In his freshman year in 2020, although he averaged only 4.1 points in 15 minutes of play, he did score 17 points in one game.

“He’s a great young man, he doesn’t let anybody phase him,” said his former teammate Zaire Williams. “You’d be surprised all the stuff he has to go through. It’s not fair, but he doesn’t let it faze him.”

Being LeBron’s son is both a blessing and a burden. The pressure is immense and he will always be compared to his father. 

It all depends on Bronny.

As Paulo Coelho said: Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.

How Swim Paddles Can Make You a Stronger, Faster Swimmer https://sport-topics.com/how-swim-paddles-can-make-you-a-stronger-faster-swimmer https://sport-topics.com/how-swim-paddles-can-make-you-a-stronger-faster-swimmer I have a new pair of paddles!!

I asked a swimmie to buy a pair of Strokemakers for me (my favorite), on one of his trips to the U.S. He refused to accept payment for them when he got back so, Yeay thank you!!! I love coach gifts ????.

swim paddles

Before I gush about this new pair, I feel the responsible thing to do is offer a preamble aka premumble on the pros and cons of using paddles, particularly for my tri friends. A survey (1993, U.S. study) of 1,262 age-group to national level swimmers revealed that swim paddles and shoulder-bearing exercises were acknowledged as "having the capacity to aggravate shoulder injuries". One might say that triathletes rarely swim on a daily basis, at least not the way pure swimmers do, wouldn't this make them less susceptible to a swim injury? It's a bit of a double-edged sword situation; a triathlete swims less often but he/she also has not had the time to build the upper body and shoulder strength that pure swimmers grow into. Throw paddles and a random training plan into the triathlete training mix, and that could lead to shoulder injuries as well.

SHOULD YOU USE SWIM PADDLES IN TRAINING? Yes. Yes you should and here's why:

1. Build strength and power. 

Paddles add resistance to your pull, which inevitably builds swim-specific strength and power. I highlighted swim-specific because that's the key - isn't it? After being locked away in one of the world's longest quarantines (Philippines, 18 months), I am painfully aware that it is impossible to sustain your swim gains on dry-land workouts alone. Swim specificity is essential to building swim strength and power. 

2. Train with speed and efficiency. 

Swim long enough and you know that when the coach announces: "Ok, paddles and pull buoy.", you can expect the lanes to erupt in celebration and sighs of relief. Who doesn't love that feeling of skimming through the water and enjoying more distance covered with each pull? 

You swim faster when you train with paddles, at a speed that is as fast or even faster than your best pace.  Swimming at this speed gives you insight into what it takes to sustain it - like keeping your core engaged and streamlined, to holding water with an early catch, and making sure that you complete your stroke all the way to the back.

3. Instant feedback on your pull form. 

Different paddle shapes, sizes, and thickness allow these tools to react to the smallest changes in the way you pull.

Hand entry: the strokemakers for example will either flip up, dunk down, or offer too much resistance if your hand is anything but perfectly angled as it enters the water. Alerted to an entry error, it then takes a little fine-tuning to get your hand entry just right.

Proper catch and pull through: a paddle will let you know if you've missed the catch, or if the pull isn't fully engaged with the water. Keep an eye out (?) for a feeling of concentrated pressure on the shoulders, which is a warning that you may be pulling with a straight arm and overloading very small muscles in your shoulder. If your paddles wobble and slip with barely any force, it's a sign that you've lost your "hold" and are most likely swimming with a dropped elbow, or sliding your arm backwards. 

Incomplete pull finish: if you try to pull your arm out of the water too early, the back of the paddle will flap loose to let you know that, 'no, you still have room in your pull back there'. 

ARE THERE DOWNSIDES TO USING PADDLES? meh. a few.

If you're new to paddles, or this post suddenly inspires you to step out and buy a mega-sized pair, please know that you have to use them sensibly.

They can lead to injury if not used properly. This is real talk, if you have weak shoulders or poor form - practice caution. Using paddles that are too big for you can blow out the tiny muscles in your rotator cuff and lead to the infamous swimmer's shoulder injury. Remember the hierarchy of swim development: form comes before strength. Before you add monster pull sets to your workout, make sure you've had your swim form analyzed and corrected!

Temporary loss of feel-for-the-water. There are some paddle styles that lead to a loss of feel-for-the-water. Rarely a problem with my strokemakers, but long pull sets can numb your hands and affect the quality of the rest of the workout. This effect is temporary but when you're pressed for time or only have an hour or two to get a good workout in, it matters. 

Can lead to new technique errors.In previous posts we talked about force avoidance. Under stress of training or fatigue, your muscles and limbs opt for the paths of least resistance - often leading to poor form.

Cut out compensating habits like spreading your fingers too wide in an effort to push the paddles harder (yes there are days when I wish my hands looked like this pic); or using a choppy, limping pull-rhythm care of a slow underwater pull and arms swinging fast when out of the water.


TIPS ON USING HAND PADDLES

1. Know your training goal. 

Are you training to improve your form? There are form specific paddles such as fingertip paddles, freestyle specific paddles, agility paddles and more. *Don't use them in a resistance/strength-building workout. 

If you're training to get stronger and thereby swim faster, then you need a standard training paddle. *Don't use agility paddles in a resistance workout (insert tarsier eyes).

2. Choose the right-sized paddle. 

All bodies are different. Hand size, upper body strength, stamina and swim form determine what size paddle to work with. A rule of thumb is to start with paddles that are about an inch wider than your hand, when your fingers are held in a relaxed position. 

If the paddles are too small - you're not getting the resistance you need to get stronger. If your finger tips sit right at the edge of the paddle it's time to move up.

If the paddles are too big - you could negate all the gains of training by injuring yourself.

If you've used the same pair of paddles for too long - your progress may plateau, unless you add distance or speed challenges to your paddle workouts. Think about moving up a size.

I have small hands and strong shoulders ???? and I was ready to move up to larger paddles. I should have moved to a paddle size between the yellow and red but hey, they were a gift and I'll take them! : ) 

I need to ease into the workouts and ensure that I maintain good form throughout. So I'm excited to see how much stronger I feel once the muscles adjust to the added resistance. 


3. Pay attention to bad habits when you use paddles. 

Make sure that your fingers aren't spread out while pulling, or that you aren't slicing the paddles sideways. These are all possible signs that the paddles may be too big for you, you need to work on your upper body strength, or it's time to book a swim analysis. 

4. Ideally, your paddles and pullbuoy workouts are part of a complete swim program.  

Hopefully you're not training with a hodgepodge of workouts "curated" off of the internet. If you've been stuck in a rut swimming at the same speeds and effort, following a proper training program can make all the difference. 

Yes, you can train with paddles and pullbouys anytime, but if you are training with a specific race in mind, there are optimal times to get the paddle resistance training in and reaping the benefits of timing these workouts properly. 

5. Be sensible.

Listen to your body. If you feel a pinching or burning sensation in your shoulders, or if your arm motions are unusually tight, leave the paddles in your pool bag and give your shoulders a rest for a week or two. If the pain persists you may need to have your shoulders checked. Hopefully you never reach this point if you follow all the notes above!

Also remember to space upper body resistance work, with a rest day before or after a swim. 

**

CLOSING

That's it, post-note, I did feel some hand numbing after my pull set this morning. The red paddles are heavy :) 

Do you have any questions about paddles and pull buoys? A favorite pull workout you'd like to share? Please feel free to post on the comments section. 

Hope this helps, happy swimming!

Surprise Swim Improvements (after 18 months of quarantine) https://sport-topics.com/surprise-swim-improvements-after-18-months-of-quarantine https://sport-topics.com/surprise-swim-improvements-after-18-months-of-quarantine I am in awe of family and friends who used the lockdown months to become fitter versions of themselves. I've seen people jump-rope to half their 2019 size, and friends with mini home-gyms walking around with wider shoulders and leaner physiques. After the desolation of one of the world's longest quarantines (Philippines, 18 months) getting fitter, faster, or stronger seems like the perfect gift to one's self.

Of course I asked: shouldn't there be a swim version of this as well?! 

How to be a better swim version of yourself.

It has been tough staying swim fit, the venues where I coached (masters swimmers and triathletes) were opened and closed intermittently; a total of five (5) months shut down.  When the pools finally re-opened (with a strict rule of one person a lane), I put together a program for a small band of swimmers to see if we could become fitter, faster, and stronger swimmers in spite of the lockdowns.

HERE'S A SAMPLE OF THE RESULTS:













HOW DID WE DO IT?

No magic bullets. I've written about this on several posts but in case you're new here and were drawn to this post because of the admittedly Amazing improvements .. here goes:

1. SWIM WITH A TRAINING PROGRAM

You must have a coach with a training program that comes with goals, milestone settings, training phases and above all ... a purpose for every. single. workout. 

You can get away with workouts based on youtube videos and articles online, but curating a program out of cherry-picked sets on the internet will only get you so far. 

2. SHOW UP

If you only have time for 2 swims a week, you can't afford to skip more than 2 to 3 workouts in a program. The latter are at least 12 weeks long and that's if you're coming from a solid base. Remember, you only have 24 swim days in a 12 week program. 

3. COMMIT AND BE CONSISTENT

Showing up is great but when you do you have to make the most of that time. This means anything from making sure that you have all the gear that you need, or having a proper timer and knowing how to use it during your workouts.

Finish your warmups and your cool downs. The first ensures that your body is prepared to do what you ask of it and the second helps it to recover faster. 

Finish the workouts. Some swimming is better than none, but if you leave before the mainset is over (working triathletes or swimmers who have to run to the office) you aren't getting the full benefit of the workout of the day. 


4. FREQUENCY 

The most significant improvements were realized when the group went from 1 workout a week to 2 to 3. The learning curve was steep soon after. It takes hours and hours of training to become a better swimmer. Elite sprinters, people who specialize in 50m or 100m swims, will often swim twice a day with up to 5,000m or more per session. It may seem unfair, all the mileage required to get better, but this batch of swimmers added one more swim day to their weekly schedule and saw their times drop significantly. Definitely worth it!

Some questions I've been asked:

Is it scary, training with the swimjunkie swimmies? 

Only if you don't do what I say (JOOOKE!). The group started training with me in 2020, they had average swim paces of 3 minutes per 100 meters, or 2:45 to 2:30, and until then their longest workouts were no more than 2000 to 2500m. One year later they're still here, aka still alive ????.


Are the workouts hard?

When they need to be, yes. If someone new comes in, we don't make you do the whole workout right away. But you are coaxed and trained to withstand the level of difficulty matched to your abilities. 

How long are your workouts?

Triathletes racing 1.9km swims should be doing about 3Km workouts, longer during the peak part of the program. We usually swim from 6am to 8:30am and are happily sitting at an average of 3.7km a workout before we ramp up for races in March. 






Are there available slots in your swim groups?

For safety reasons, and while the one-person-a-lane rule still stands, our training groups are small .. and full. For now I have one slot available at The Village Sports Club in BF Las Piñas (6am Tuesday). I was hoping to do an early evening swim session for athletes who can't make it to the morning swims ... a show of hands who would be interested to train from 6pm - 7:30pm in BF Parañaque? 

IN CLOSING

We did it! We stayed safe, distanced, and had ourselves vaccinated. 

We booked our swim analyses and then spent time working on our form -  because we had the time to focus on our form. We then followed a program that pushed us when we needed to be pushed, and rested when it was time to. We joined small-group openwater swim camps to get reacquainted with currents and waves. We continue to work on skills that will come handy in triathlon and longer openwater swims. Now that we have about 12 weeks to go before a fingers-crossed March race date, we will not be starting our program from scratch, but from a higher level of swim fitness. Am expecting some serious PR's in March ????.

Allow me to digress a little. 

Do you have a race in March? 

Are you anxious about getting back to your pre-pandemic swim fitness levels in time? 

Have you been out of the openwater for so long that the waves and dark water creep you out? 

We're working on something to help you with that! Please follow our page on Facebook: Swimjunkie Challenge or Just Add Water Triathlon & Openwater Swim Tips, and on instagram: @swimjunkieph @swimjchallenge for announcements.

I hope this helps. Happy Swimming!

PPC pays tribute to ‘exceptional athlete and champion’ Medina https://sport-topics.com/ppc-pays-tribute-to-exceptional-athlete-and-champion-medina https://sport-topics.com/ppc-pays-tribute-to-exceptional-athlete-and-champion-medina TOKYO – Philippine Paralympic Committee president Mike Barredo on Saturday paid tribute to table tennis player and Rio Paralympics bronze medalist Josephine Medina, who passed away back home last Thursday at the age of 51.

“Ate Jo, as Medina was called, exemplified hard work and dedication to her sport that our national para-athletes can follow and look up to as an inspiration,” Barredo said here.

“This is what made her an exceptional athlete and champion and enabled her to win a bronze medal for the country in Rio.”

Medina broke the country’s 16-year-old dry spell in the quadrennial global sports festival featuring the world’s best para-athletes since Adeline Dumapong Ancheta garnered the first bronze in the Games in women’s powerlifting during the 2000 edition held in Sydney, Australia.

“Talagang hard worker yang si Josephine and addicted to training, which is why she excelled in her sport,” noted para-athletics coach Joel Deriada, who witnessed Medina win her bronze medal at the Riocentro Pavilion 3 in the Brazilian carnival capital.

“Masipag talaga sa training si Ate Jo. Nagtatagal talaga kami sa pag-palo lampas nang isa o dalawang oras sa four hours namin na regular practice,” noted coach Michael Dalumpines, who thanked the Philippines Sports Commission’s swift assistance to her family, from Manila.

Despite her disability, Medina was good enough to be a member of the national women’s team in 1989, according to Dalumpines, a former national standout himself.

A graduate of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Medina was dominant on the Southeast Asian level, bagging four gold medals in the 2008 ASEAN Para Games held in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

She also had a gold each in the 2014, 2015, and 2017 editions of the meet held in Naypyidaw, Myanmar, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, respectively.

Medina brought home silvers in the 2010 Guangzhou and 2018 Jakarta Asian Para Games and a bronze medal in the 2014 Incheon edition.

15&year&old paddler Yhzza Cruz ready to make waves in SEAG https://sport-topics.com/15-year-old-paddler-yhzza-cruz-ready-to-make-waves-in-seag https://sport-topics.com/15-year-old-paddler-yhzza-cruz-ready-to-make-waves-in-seag A 15-year-old daughter of a former member of the famed Blu Girls is fast making a name for herself in the 31st Vietnam Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi.

Kheith Rhynne “Yhzza” Baldomero Cruz, the youngest member of the national table tennis team that will plunge into action Thursday, is the daughter of former national women’s softball player Vanessa and former varsity table tennis player Khenneath.

She’s no slouch. Aside from currently being the country’s top women’s player, she won a silver medal in the 2019 Bangkok Southeast Asian Tennis Association women’s doubles and a singles bronze in the 2018 Naga SEATTA cadet singles.

She will see action in the women’s singles and doubles events of table tennis on May 13-22 at the Hai Duong Province Gymnasium.

This early in her career, she has experienced lows but has no plans of quitting.

“Based on my experiences ‘yung failure part ng journey pero d’un tayo natututo,” said Cruz, who was born in Olongapo and is currently a grade 10 student at PCAF.

“Ang strong point niya bata pa, and she has determination and discipline. She always joins the Philippine Table Tennis Foundation, Inc. tournaments, and most of the time she emerges champion,” said PTTF president Ting Ledesma.

The other members of the national women’s table tennis team are Kezia Bien Ablaza, Sheryl May Otanez, Emy Rose Dael, and Angelou Joyce Laude, with Annabelle Commendador as coach.

Making up the men’s team are Jann Mari Nayre, Richard Gonzales, John Russel Misal, Japheth Adasa and John Michael Castro.

SEA Games: Misal&Gonzales ends PH table tennis doubles’ 11&year podium drought https://sport-topics.com/sea-games-misal-gonzales-ends-ph-table-tennis-doubles-11-year-podium-drought https://sport-topics.com/sea-games-misal-gonzales-ends-ph-table-tennis-doubles-11-year-podium-drought After 11 years, the Philippines has clinched a medal in men’s doubles in Southeast Asian Games table tennis.

John Russel Misal and Richard Gonzales fought hard before yielding to Singapore’s Clarence Chew and Ethan Poh, 3-1, to capture the silver in the said event, Wednesday at the Hai Duong Gymnasium in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Gonzales, a legend in Philippine table tennis, and a four-time SEA Games singles bronze medalist, paired up with Rodel Valle in that bronze-medal winning duo in the 2011 Jakarta Games in an edition dominated by the Singaporeans.

Misal, the UAAP Season 80 MVP from National University, and Gonzales took it p a notch this time and did by winning two matches in the first rounds that both went the distance of five games.

The Filipino pair edged out Thailand’s Phakpoom Sanguansin and Padasak Tanviriyavechakul in the quarterfinals on Tuesday, before eliminating the other Singaporean duo of Koen Pang Yew En and Josh Chua earlier in the day.

The feat was seen by Philippine Table Tennis Federation, Inc. (PTTFI) president Ting Ledesma and secretary-general Pong Ducanes, who both flew to Hanoi to support our national paddlers. Lauro Crisostomo is the head coach of the national squad.

Gonzales will look to go better than his string of bronze medal finishes and Misal will try to carry this momentum as the men’s singles competitions roll on the next few days.

Basecamp: Pre&Marathon Base Training starts JULY 4 https://sport-topics.com/basecamp-pre-marathon-base-training-starts-july-4 https://sport-topics.com/basecamp-pre-marathon-base-training-starts-july-4

Basecamp is a 12-week running program that will build your base mileage for marathon training. It is essentially the pre-training program to TBR Dream Marathon training.

The running program was designed by certified USATF Level 1 and RRCA running coach and TBR Dream Marathon founder, Jaymie Pizarro, The Bull Runner.

Who can join?

Basecamp is for individuals who are new to running, beginners, or runners who are coming back after a long hiatus.

There are 3 Phases to Basecamp with each phase being 4 weeks:

Phase 1: Jul 4 to 31 – if you are new to running or wish to start running again gently start here

Phase 2: Aug 1 to 28 – if you are a beginner runner ora runners who is returning after a long hiatus start here

Phase 3: Aug 29 to Sep 25 – for beginner runners, runners returning after a long hiatus, or runners who want a light running program to prep them for marathon training

What do you get?

Here’s what you receive when you join us:

+ Weekly Running plan delivered via Tempo by TBR mobile app
+ Direct messaging to Coach Jaymie for support
+ Exclusive group access on Tempo by TBR mobile app

How does a typical week look?

You will be running 3x a week: 2 weekdays are regular runs while we run a bit longer on weekends. You also have one day of walking. Other days you can choose to rest or cross-train. You can switch the days to accommodate your schedule.

The program encourages run-walk intervals for the program. This means we run then walk for a few minutes and repeat. This method is what we have used for all our marathons with over 6,000 TBR Dream alumni and is based on the Galloway Run-Walk Method of U.S. Olympian and running coach, Jeff Galloway.

All runs are done on your own at your most convenient time and preferred schedule. Runs can be done outdoors or on a treadmill.

How will this help you?

Base training will allow you to gradually increase your running time or distance without putting much strain on your body. This safely builds your fitness level whether you are just starting to run or a runner who is just coming back after a long hiatus. This program will improve your endurance slowly but surely with less risk of injury.

This is a BASE TRAINING program. Our goal is to build your foundation for marathon training, NOT go into full training mode just yet. We will go at an easy pace.

How much is Basecamp?

Each phase (4 weeks) costs only USD7.99 or roughly PHP400. That’s only P100 per week!

If you purchase the entire 12-week program, it’s only USD19.99 or PHP1,000. You save PHP200!

Sydney Marathon Now a Candidate for World Marathon Majors https://sport-topics.com/sydney-marathon-now-a-candidate-for-world-marathon-majors https://sport-topics.com/sydney-marathon-now-a-candidate-for-world-marathon-majors All of us World Marathon Majors finishers are always looking out for the next race that’s going to be added to the prestigious list. News came out today that Sydney Marathon may be one of them! Read on below…

The Blackmores Sydney Marathon has officially been announced as a candidate race for the Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM) – the first marathon in Oceania to be nominated. 

The announcement marks the commencement of a multi-year evaluation process by AbbottWMM. 

To become a Major, the Sydney Marathon will be required to meet strict criteria over a three-year period and if successful, will join an esteemed group of races – Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon, TCS London Marathon, BMW-BERLIN Marathon, Bank of America Chicago Marathon and TCS New York City Marathon – as a new member of the prestigious Abbott World Marathon Majors in 2025. 

“We have always believed that the Blackmores Sydney Marathon has what it takes to be an Abbott World Marathon Major, so becoming one of only three candidate races is a tremendous honour”, said Wayne Larden, Race Director, Sydney Marathon. 

“The Sydney Marathon is part of Australia’s largest running festival, the Sydney Running Festival, attracting thousands of participants to run across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and finish under the sails of the Sydney Opera House each year. 

“We can now take a huge leap forward and become one of the most iconic running events in the World and achieving this status would be a tremendous boost for Sydney and Australia. Australia is a proud sporting nation, and we want to call on all of Australia’s runners from all over the country and runners from overseas to support the Sydney Marathon achieve the criteria to become an Abbott World Marathon Major in Sydney” 

Whilst the Sydney Marathon already meets many of the requirements set by the Abbott World Marathon Majors and continual enhancements will be made to the race over the next three years including significant growth of our marathon finishers. 

“We are pulling out all the stops to achieve these goals and greatly appreciate the support of the running community across Australia and Overseas, as well as the support from our partners, sponsors, staff and volunteers who are helping to make this dream a reality.” Larden said. 

The Sydney Marathon and its candidacy for the Abbott World Marathon Majors series is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW. 

NSW Minister for Tourism and Sport Stuart Ayres said the candidacy acknowledges the Sydney Marathon as a world-class event with one of the most spectacular marathon courses on the planet. 

“No city in the world has a better combination of natural beauty, love of sport and iconic infrastructure for hosting a marathon than Sydney. The Sydney Marathon is recognised as one of the world’s best marathon events, uniting people of all backgrounds to enjoy an unforgettable running experience. The World Marathon Majors candidacy recognises Sydney as a premier destination to join the great marathon cities of the world, while showcasing Sydney’s natural beauty and desirable lifestyle to a global audience. 

“Achieving the status of an Abbott World Marathon Major would cement Sydney’s position as one of the world’s great sporting event cities. It would attract thousands of visitors to the Harbour City and play a key role in the NSW Government’s ambition to make Sydney and NSW the major events capital and premier visitor economy of the Asia Pacific,” Mr Ayres said. 

A legacy event of the Sydney Olympics, the Sydney Marathon will attract some of the world’s greatest long-distance runners and wheelchair athletes to Sydney throughout the candidacy period. The presence of these elite athletes is expected to draw significant interest in the event, lower current finish times and act as a drawcard for age group runners. 

The candidacy also sees Infront, a Wanda Sports Group company, become a stakeholder in the Sydney Marathon. The organisation will provide strategic input on both media rights and sponsorship strategy whilst also supporting the event throughout the evaluation phase. 

Hans-Peter Zurbruegg, Senior Vice President Personal & Corporate Fitness at Infront, said: “Sydney is an amazing destination and has an iconic marathon with a strong legacy. Infront is delighted to form part of the efforts to make it an AbbottWMM event in the coming years. The event is already recognised as a success, and we will leverage our expertise, networks, and insights to elevate the event to the next level. We are proud to work in close partnership with the Abbott WMM team, as well as the Sydney team including all stakeholders to make the dream of establishing a WMM event in Sydney, Australia come true.” 

CEO Athletics Australia, Peter Bromley added: Athletics Australia is extremely proud to be the owners of Australia’s greatest running festival. A legacy event of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, it has a long and prestigious history. Building on that, this candidacy opportunity will deliver significant growth to the event and showcase the sport of Athletics far more broadly. We look forward to assisting the event achieve the criteria and become an Abbott World Marathon Major. 

Dawna Stone, recently appointed Abbott World Marathon Majors CEO said, “The Abbott World Marathon Majors are delighted to welcome the Sydney Marathon into the candidate process from 2022. This presents an exciting opportunity to expand our impact into Oceania and further our mission to create, grow and support opportunities for all to discover the power of the marathon community. We look forward to working closely with the team in Sydney as we start this journey together!” 

The marathon is part of the Sydney Running Festival which boasts incredible courses that take in Sydney’s most scenic and iconic landmarks. The Sydney Marathon provides runners with the unique opportunity to run over the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge, traffic-free, before crossing the finish line surrounded by the sails of the Sydney Opera House. 

In addition to the Sydney Marathon, Cape Town’s Sanlam Marathon and China’s Chengdu Marathon are currently part of the AbbottWMM candidate process. Only three candidate spots are available. 

The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival including the Sydney Marathon will take place on Sunday 18 September 2022. Early bird entries are open at sydneyrunningfestival.com.au.

Beijing hosts a historic Olympic games. It will be the third consecutive Olympics played in East Asia (in 2018, it was the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea; last year, the Tokyo Games).

For 16 days starting last Friday and ending this Feb. 20, Beijing will host its first-ever Winter Olympics. Back in August 2008 — an event that my wife Jasmin and I witnessed in person for 10 days — the same city of Beijing hosted the Olympics. 

Beijing becomes the only city in history to host both the Summer and Winter Games.

I checked the temperature in Beijing yesterday and it stood at 0 Celsius. It dips to -7C at night and “heats up” to 4C during midday. (During summer, it’s a hot 30C.)

The Beijing National Stadium was the venue for the Opening Ceremony two nights ago — the same venue China used in 2008. Jasmin and I had a chance to watch the athletics competition 12 years ago (when it was called “Bird’s Nest”) and the 80,000-seater complex is both stunning and humongous. 

The Winter Olympics is much smaller than the Summer Games. In Tokyo last year, 206 nations and 11,656 athletes competed in 339 events. This week in Beijing, the Winter Games will involve only 91 nations and 2,875 athletes in 109 events.

Among the popular sports include Ice hockey, Figure skating, Ski jumping, Alping skiing, snowboarding and Cross-country skiing. Another event is Bobsleigh. If you watched the sports comedy film, “Cool Runnings,” a story of the Jamaican team joining the 1988 Winter Olympics, you’ll smile and understand Bobsleigh (or bobsled).

With the spectators, it appears that as many as 150,000 locals will be allowed to watch in a tightly-controlled environment involving strict Covid-19 tests and limited seating. Not all venues will have spectators.

With the athletes and coaches, similar to Tokyo, Beijing is implementing a closed loop system with daily testing.

For the Philippines, our choice of flag bearer was an easy choice (usually, the most accomplished athlete gets to carry the flag). It’s Asa Miller — because he’s the only representative of Team PHI. 

In last Friday’s Opening, he was our lone athlete (carrying the flag) and was followed by four other officials, including POC President Bambol Tolentino. (It’s sad to note that figure skater Michael Martinez, the two-time Olympian, is recovering from injuries and won’t be competing.)

Asa Miller, only 21, will be competing in the Men’s slalom and Giant slalom events. 

This is not Miller’s first trip to the capital city of China. In 2014, the then-14-year-old Miller was an exchange student.

“It feels great that it’s real now,” said Miller. “And it feels great to be in China again – the Olympic spirit and the culture all over the place, as well as the other athletes.. They’re very fun and motivating.”

To watch Asa Miller, whose event is on Feb. 13, and to witness the other “cool” athletes, coverage in the Phils. is available via Cignal TV (channels 198 and 298).

One of the most current-handicapped Ironman swim courses (in the world) has changed!

From this:



To this:


What does that mean for everyone swimming this Sunday, August 7, 2022?

IT'S A CHANNEL

The swim is in a (Hilutungan) channel, which is swimmers' code for strong currents : ) We've explained why that is on several posts but as a refresher: if you force this much water through a smaller section, the currents are stronger. Some sections of Hilutungan have been known to house currents as fast as 2m/second. For reference, a competitive swimmer holding a pace of 1 minute per 100m will NOT move in a current that strong. Thankfully these speeds are only felt at spring flood tides. 



THE TIDE IS FAVORABLE

The tide forecast for August 7 is favorable! Why does this matter? 

Currents move laterally, left right front back. Tides move up and down. In a spring tide more water is traveling with the currents, which leads to delicious swim experiences like Cebu in 2015. ; )

This August 7, 2022, you will be swimming on a favorable day as far as tides go. 

The high tide is forecasted at 5am. If your swim starts at 6am you will be swimming in a bit of slack, where the current is at its "stillest". If your zone group or race wave starts at 7am onwards, that's when the tide is expected to pick up and grow stronger. 

What our OC self is most excited about though, is that you will be swimming from a high to low tide. Haven't had the time to review previous years' tide timings but the toughest Cebu swims have always been during a transition to high tide. The forecast for the tide on Sunday is moving south west, which means that could aid your 825meter swim to the finish. Exciting!!

Exception: I have crossed a strait where the currents should have been going one direction during low tide. The strait connected two bays and at the shift to low tide the water should have traveled from right to left. To our shock/horror/delight our group moved inexorably in the opposite direction. It turns out the bay on the right was deeper than the one on the left and at low tide the water rushed in to fill the deeper bay. 

This is just a roundabout way of saying that from 7am onwards the currents should be with you on your way back UNLESS there are coastal eddies or other topographical features that we don't know about. 

What could be hairy is the 150meter cut to the finish, when you swim laterally against the current. Sight well to keep yourself locked on a straight line to the finish. 

WINDS & WEATHER 

This is the wild card. Sunday's forecast are 12 - 19kph winds. The Beaufort Scale characterizes this as a gentle breeze but for a swimmer (and a swim event organizer) that is anxiety inducing. If the wind blows steadily at these speeds for an extended amount of time they can create waves of their own. Winds are forecasted to be coming from the southwest, which is against you on your way back to the finish. yeesh. 

Hoping for a calm day on Sunday, at least for the swim. Otherwise, expect some wave chop especially for those starting their swims at 7am onwards. 


WILL THE NEW COURSE FEEL DIFFERENT?
 
Again, unless there are eddies or other topographical features in the area that we don't know about, it should be very similar to the "old" swim course. As you can see you are practically swimming along the same lines and in the same section of the channel (not a perfect approximation, just an expression of amateur OC skills).



IN SUMMARY 

In terms of timing and tides, you are set up for good swim conditions this year. 

This will always be a power swim because it's in a channel, particularly for those of you starting your swims when the water flows out. The pros and early waves will be sitting in the nicest time of the tide, and will be done well before it gets more challenging. 

Watch that sighting on the lateral crosses at both ends of the course, when the currents push against your body. 

Good luck everyone and may the winds and weather be in your favor : ) 

Shameless plug follows... the water is lovely here haha. ????

NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH – PhiGolf WGT Edition Home Simulator https://sport-topics.com/new-product-launch-phigolf-wgt-edition-home-simulator https://sport-topics.com/new-product-launch-phigolf-wgt-edition-home-simulator

How many of you are bored at home wishing you were out on the golf course?

For many of us, we haven’t golfed since before the ECQ quarantine… and realistically, we don’t see ourselves golfing on any time soon.

When we first heard about PhiGolf home golf simulator, we were definitely interested.

We live, breathe and love golf…

So when we heard that we can play in the comforts of our own home, we were really excited.

What is PhiGolf?

Simply put, PhiGolf is literally the best high definition golf game simulator on the market and it’s also compact, portable and affordable.

PhiGolf originated in 2017 in Korea and evolved from a golf swing sensor into a full fledge home simulator that is sold out in most countries. Today it is also the #1 golf simulator under $500 on Amazon and is also a partner of WGT (#1 Golf App in the World) and Top Golf.

What makes PhiGolf so special compared to the others are:

  • Can be used anywhere – It’s compact and portable so you can play wherever you go! It can be used indoors and outdoors, in your living room, office, hotel room, backyard, games room or bar!
  • Will improve your game – PhiGolf started off as a swing analyzer first and designed an app specifically to improve your game. It’s patented 9-Axis 3D swing sensor will be able to give you accurate details about your swing such as distance, swing speed, club path, face angle, ball spin rate and more..
  • Has the Best Gameplay – WGT is the #1 Golf App in the world with over 20 million downloads. It’s a great app to play with your family, kids or friends. It also has access to many of the world’s famous golf courses in the world.
  • Is pretty affordable – Unlike some of the other simulators that go for P1-200,000… PhiGolf cost only a small fraction of the price, which I’m sure you’ll wife will approve.

For more information check out this video here:

 

How it Works

It’s pretty simple. Included in the Phigolf Set are: (1) Phigolf Swing Stick, (1) 9-Axis 3D Swing Sensor, (1) Charging Cable, and (1) Instruction Manual.

There are also 2 apps that you can download on your phone/tablet depending on your purpose.

  • PhiGolf App – This app is more geared towards training. It has a driving range, swing analyzer, daily routines and has a feature which audits the weaknesses in your game. It also has 4 different golf courses to choose from and can also be used without the internet.
  • WGT App – The WGT app is the award winning video game called World Golf Tour (WGT). This is a video game that has been around a long time and the graphics plus game play are outstanding. Phigolf partnered with the WGT to provide access to more courses and it allows Phigolf to focus on improving their technology instead of focusing on the game itself. WGT is what you would use to play other people from around the world who also have the game. It’s also a great way to have a round of golf while truly social distancing. The Internet is required to use this app. When you buy your Phigolf, it comes with 1 course. To get access to the rest of the courses from around the World, you would have to subscribe at just $2USD per month. It’s totally worth it!

PhiGolf WGT Is Now Available in the Philippines

You’re in luck because PhiGolf WGT Home Simulator has just arrived to the Philippines and is running a Special Promotion as part of their new product launch.

Until May 31 , 2020, they will be 20% off + Free Shipping via Same Day Courier in Metro Manila.

Monkey Wall https://sport-topics.com/monkey-wall https://sport-topics.com/monkey-wall
​We're happy to share with everyone the latest crag the Climb Philippines team has been working on. Monkey Wall, like the rest of the walls we're currently enjoying in Wawa, was first developed in the early to mid-90's. Its sustained section features beautiful gray and white streaks, which was what caught our eye during a hike to the peak. Upon closer inspection, we found that it had already been established. Ahhh....so THIS is the Monkey Wall!

​For that (and so much more), we would like to give credit to the 'Talban bible and its creators, the first guidebook Rockclimbing in Montalban (published 2000), a collaborative effort of Roel Tan-Torres, Simon Sandoval, Ruben Flores, Iva Ybanez, Jong Narciso, and Carlos "Kuya Mackie" Makinano. 

​We've devoted a few weekends to scout the routes, add some anchors, and replace some iffy bolts. Still a work in a progress, with more space for further development. But in the meantime, willing climbers are welcome to try the lines out. Just always remember to CLIMB SAFE, and do be mindful of the reminders outlined below.
​We welcome any sort of feedback to the mini-guide that we made. Please give us a shout out at climbphilippines@gmail.com for that, or leave a comment below. Climb on!

MONKEY WALL

How to Get There

​From Aling Norma’s eatery, follow the road going towards Wawa Dam. The road will split right after the giant swimming pool. Left path remains a rocky/muddy dirt road; take the curving cement road at the right that goes upward. This is also the jump-off point to Mt. Binacayan, one of the frequented peaks in Wawa.
​Just follow the cement road, past Iglesia ni Cristo church, until it changes into a worn and obvious trail. Go past houses and a handful of sari-sari stores. The trail will become single file before you hit a steep, soil staircase. Just keep hiking up, past a cluster of beverage stalls, until the trail becomes rocky. Shortly after walking amidst limestones, you’ll come across the single-standing hut of Tatay Rody on your right. That means it’s time to cut left, through some banana trees and crops, to the approach of Monkey Wall.

It’s a good 30-45 minute hike from Aling Norma’s, depending on your cardio level. A decent “warm-up”, not so different from your favorite trek up to Uling.


Route List

A. 3 Monkeys and the Sun (Project)
12m / 9 bolts / Anchors: 1 locking biner and backup
Starts at the left part of the white slab, up to a compression boulder sequence.
 
B. Handlanger (Project)
15m / 11 bolts / Anchors: Hangers only
Potentially the hardest line as of yet, possibly with a dyno. Use long draw on the 5th.
 
C. I Got You Babe* (6c)
22m / 15 bolts / Anchors: Hangers only / 1996 FA Jong Narciso 
Made for those with a good set of pinchers. Follow the flowstone unto a mini-rest before more tufa climbing. Original route ended at bolt #9, afterwards is the extended version. Must try.
 
D. The Gift* (7a)
13m / 8 bolts / Anchors: Hangers only / 1998 FA Kim Imao
A high first bolt at the ledge, then follow through on a single diagonal crack. Short and sweet!
 
E. Seven Nation Army (6a)
20m / 13 bolts / Anchors: Rings / 2018 FA Mio Gomez
Begin inside the big crack into a small overhang, and up the white stripe. Nice variety of movements, highly recommended. Use long draws on the 3rd and 7th bolts to avoid drag.
 
F. Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door* (5b)
18m / 10 bolts / Anchors: Hangers only / 1996 FA Choy Aquino, Jong Narciso
Literally, “root climbing” (unless you want it to become a 7b). All slab climbing after the ledge.
 
G. Sunshine** (5.9/5b)
60ft / 1997 FA Erwin Gozum
 
H. Headache** (5.6)
50ft / 1997FA Agmata, Castor
 
I. Set-up for the Gift** (5.7)
55ft / 1997 FA Jong Narciso
 
J. Skinless** (5.10/6a)
45ft / FA Kim Imao, Levi Nahayangan, Ferdie Bulan
 
 
What do the asterisks (*) mean?
All those with asterisk (single or double) were listed in the original guidebook, Rockclimbing in Montalban (2000). This means they were bolted 18 years ago at the minimum. Double asterisk means the information was lifted directly from the guidebook (just to give you an idea of what had existed before). These ** routes have not yet been checked / climbed during the recent visits in 2017- 2018. As a safety precaution, we do not recommend that you hop on these routes just yet.
Tips & Reminders
  • ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET, whether you’re belaying, climbing, or just chilling. The crag hasn’t been climbed in a long time, and the new routes may still have loose rock.
  • This crag is good for a morning session, the sun can fry you by noontime.
  • Wear approach shoes for the hike.
  • Manage the group size when you visit. It's really only six routes for now (4 clean + 2 projects), plus there are crops around the crag. Let's minimize impact and practice LNT.
  • Be proactive in checking the condition of the bolts and hangers of the old routes. Don’t risk it if you think a bolt isn’t in the best condition.
  • Follow the usual SOPs: Register at Aling Norma’s Eatery before your climb, and pay the group climbing fee at the Barangay Hall.
  • For all sorts of suggestion and feedback, please contact us at climbphilippines@gmail.com

Keep Calm And Climb On: Five Things to Expect When Getting Into the Sport of Climbing https://sport-topics.com/keep-calm-and-climb-on-five-things-to-expect-when-getting-into-the-sport-of-climbing https://sport-topics.com/keep-calm-and-climb-on-five-things-to-expect-when-getting-into-the-sport-of-climbing By Ina
​Are you looking for a new pastime? An escape from the daily grind? Perhaps a break from your usual fitness activity?

Or maybe you’re just bored and want to try something you’ve never done before?
 
Whatever it is that led you to these pages, we're glad you found your way here. This post hopes to broadcast the less-highlighted but equally-important truths about the sport of climbing. (And yes, climbing is a legitimate sport, World Cups and our own Philippine Team and all!)
 
Just to be clear, this is not a guide to fulfilling your elite climber ambition, though tips will surely be scattered here and there. This is more about sharing the less-hyped parts of being a climber, to give you a well-rounded perspective of why more and more people are drawn to it, and why it’s far more than an activity to tick off your bucket list. 
 
Whether you've only tried "wall-climbing" in a school fair or some expo, or even if you’ve already visited a climbing gym a couple of times, our goal is to cast out any doubts you have about dipping your finger into the sport. Because the last thing we want are for newbie climbers to have crushed expectations after seeing the reality. 

Are you ready? Let’s dive in!

Number One: 
Your arms will feel like jelly.
Your hands will develop calluses.
​And maybe you’ll get a scratch or bruise.

One of the biggest misconceptions about climbing is that people think steel arms and a lean body are pre-requisites for starting. I’ve heard people say that they’ll lose weight first before trying, or that they’re hesitant because they “can’t even do a pull-up”. 
 
These worries are completely unfounded because climbing is a full-body workout. This is especially true when you're just starting out. Climbing is a lot like going up a step-ladder: It’s mainly your legs working to push you up from one rung to the next, while your hands and arms assist by pulling your body in (closer to the ladder) so that you don’t lose your balance, or fall backwards as you move up. 
 
Your arms, therefore, work in coordination with your legs and the rest of your body (back, core, etc.) as you climb. This clearly shows how your success in climbing isn't fully dependent on upper body strength alone.
Picture
Keys to climbing well: Delicate footwork, leg and core strength, flexibility.
And since your hands will be gripping the climbing holds (these are what the “rocks” and brightly-colored shapes on the wall are called) the whole time, you can expect the skin on your palms and fingers to get thicker and tougher as you hang on them more and more often. (Don't fret, though -- calluses should be your ally, not your enemy, as this article points out).

So what kind of tiredness can you expect? To put it simply, you’ll feel a weaker hand grip. I remember repetitively dropping a bar soap when I took a bath after my first few climbing sessions. Some couldn’t turn a door knob, hold a water bottle, or grip the wheel of the car. 
 
The good thing is it’s nothing permanent. There will simply be a distinct tiredness in your forearms that may last for few days, depending on how fatigued your muscles are. But this won't be happening to you forever. As you log in more climbing time, your hands and forearms will get used to carrying your body weight regularly, until eventually, it'll take a lot more than an hour of climbing to wear it out that way again. 

What about the scratches and bruises? Don’t worry, that only happens to the clumsiest of us. Kidding aside, it also happens that you can be so focused on climbing that you don’t notice how your elbow occasionally grazes the wall, or your hip or knee bumps a climbing hold. It can’t be anything major, and you can even be proud of yourself for earning battle scars so early on. 
Picture

Number Two:
​You'll get grimy.

It takes a while for me to break into a sweat. But when I first learned to climb up and down the wall, I was surprised to find my clothes ready for wringing.
 
Maybe it was the sauna-like atmosphere in the gym, I can’t recall anymore. The point is, even if you’re climbing in an air-conditioned facility, climbing can make you sweat. A lot. It may not look like your typical cardiovascular workout, but carrying your body weight even on the most basic wall can elevate one’s heart rates and burn calories. Add to that the fear component of climbing, and one easily gets sweaty palms, underarms and groins. 
 
Then there’s the chalk. Climbers use chalk similar to what gymnasts use, to minimize the sweat on their palms which affect their ability to grip holds. Chalk is kept in a “chalk bag” (one of the personal gear you will own as a climber). But because they are loose like powder, and the ratio of chalk bag to climber is 1:1, there is chalk dust inevitably floating around the gym all the time.
 
Combine this floating chalk with your sweat-drenched hair, nape, neck, and every other skinfold on your body, and you can really manage to dirty yourself up without effort.
Picture

​Then there are the climbing gyms which are not created equal. Some have better ventilation than others. Some are kept more clean and tidied-up than others. So if you are easily affected by heat, are asthmatic, or are allergic to dust, it would be wise to consider your choice of climbing facility. 
 
Consider also the time of your climbing session. Mornings will always be the coolest time of the day. Noon is always the worst time to climb. Even if you’re climbing somewhere with air-con, the oven-warmth of our tropical climate can blanket you as you reach the top of the wall (closest to the ceiling). The heat gradually lessens in the afternoon. By the evening, the climbing temperature can become ideal again.

Number Three:
​You'll learn about focus.

​A typical scene in a climbing gym: There are groups of people clustered together, watching other climbers scale the wall. There will be frequent bursts of loud cheer as climbers push each other on. Either that, or booming laughter and never-ending taunting.
 
There are kids half your size hiking up the wall with unrelenting energy. There are adults that look twice your age, cruising up a boulder, or falling (what looks) haphazardly, but not flinching from the air time at all. People crank pull-ups between casual chats and finger taps on the cellphone. Everyone’s backs, shoulders and biceps look magazine-worthy. 
 
The different characters in the gym may catch your attention as you wait for your climb. But as soon as you’re attached to the rope and signaled to start your ascent, the distractions that pre-occupied you a few seconds ago will start to fade away. The only thought you’ll be left with is: How the heck do I get myself up this wall??
 
Humans have an inherent fear of falling. It’s part of our instinct of self-preservation and avoidance of pain. Once your body gets off the ground, and the more height you gain, your mind will begin to zero in on the task of keeping you on the wall, its way of trying to “keep you alive”.

​And in this day when we are constantly sidetracked by a notification (Hey, that's cool! Like / Double Tap / Share), or some errand that slipped our mind but can't not attend to (Time to panic!!!), climbing is a good teacher of how to turn off distractions, deal with our inner demons, do problem-solving, and stay in the present moment. 
Apart from teaching one to focus on the climbing task at hand, the sport emphasizes how focusing on your own performance outweighs obsessing about how other climbers are leaner / taller / stronger / better than you.
 
Climbing shows you clearly how each body is unique, and has its own set of strengths that can be used to each one's own advantage.

​Observe this in your first session: You and your climbing partner will never use the exact same method to get up the wall. It doesn’t mean one person’s way of doing it is wrong and the other one’s right. It just demonstrates how each person’s body and way of "solving the problem" is different. The challenge for you is to figure out how to use your own body optimally to complete a climb.
 
To back this up a bit more, you should know that in the climbing world, there’s an international system for determining just how hard a climb is. For instance, I’m a Filipino climber and I’m on some mountain in France. Using the grading system, I'll be able to determine if a climbing route is above, below, or just within my level. (A climbing route is a set sequence or path up the wall or rock). Having this standard grading system emphasizes how a climber must focus on benchmarking his or her performance on the grading scale, rather than targeting to outperform another climber.
Picture

Number Four:
You'll constantly surprise yourself.

​At first, you can’t imagine yourself getting to the top of the wall. But through practice, determination and encouragement, you’ll eventually get there.
 
You’ll be scared out of your wits to let go of the rope. What if the rope breaks? The gear fails? My belay partner makes a mistake?? But after a few minutes, you'll be back on the ground, the moment of fear will have passed, and you'll be ready to go back up again.
 
You’ll be climbing a route three times, five times, ten times, never managing to complete it; your arms or your brain always fails you halfway through. But then you try it again, and on your 11th try, it finally sends ("send": climbing jargon for completing a climb).
 
There will be many surprising victories in your climbing journey, big and small. Many of them will not be seen by other people. But you will know it personally if you’ve conquered or surpassed something you’ve never done before, and that will make all the difference to you.
 
It can be as hidden as finally being able to climb without a tingle of fear in your body. Or it can be obvious, like doing your first pull-up, or learning to do a drop-knee (a technique where a climber rotates the hips in order to point their knee in and downward. This EpicTV video explains this super-important technique well).

Whatever it is, there will surely be many moments in climbing when you will prove yourself wrong, and just pleasantly surprise yourself about being able to do something more comfortably, confidently, and successfully.
 
Surprises can go the other way, too. 
 
You may discover certain traits about yourself, like how you react to pressure and disappointment. Do you get agitated and anxious when you can’t finish a problem that everyone else can easily do? Or do you get more motivated to strive harder?
 
I remember one of my first visits to a climbing gym that opened my eyes to how I reacted to failure. I climbed an easy wall slowly and reached the top. I felt good. I climbed a second wall and surprisingly, managed to finish it, too. Naturally, I felt strong and optimistic. I climbed a third wall, reached the overhanging section, then flooded with panic at why my grip was loosening uncontrollably, until I just peeled off without a fight. I cried and didn’t want to try the same wall again.
 
I wasn’t used to failing, and having a failed climb witnessed by the “public” was one of the worst feelings for me at that time. I was shocked (and embarrassed with) my own self about how automatically the tears came, and how quickly I was discouraged. Thankfully, climbing has allowed me to experience hundreds of these “morale-crushers” and taught me to toughen up and fix my attitude. 
 
I also learned that I mustn’t label these incidents as morale-crushers. These “bad surprises” of falling off routes served as eye-openers to what I still lacked and needed to improve on. I learned to accept that failing is part of the climbing life. And the more times I fell, the deeper each lesson was hammered into my brain.

Number Five:
You’ll get in shape while having fun.

You already know that climbing is a sport that activates your whole body. It promotes strength, flexibility, coordination and optimally engages the muscles from head to toe. But what will make you keep coming back for it?
 
In case it hasn’t been mentioned enough, it’s because there’s a mental side to climbing.

It’s not just about pushing your body to its physical limits. Successfully climbing up the wall requires the same approach as solving a puzzle: Planning your moves, refining your techniques, trial and error, adjusting methods and tactics, and last but not least, harnessing your sheer focus and determination to put everything together.

All this effort is part and parcel of getting to the top of a route. And these same things make for a far more interesting workout than counting laps, sets and minutes, doing the same movements over and over again. 
 
Then there’s the social aspect of climbing. Have we mentioned that you can expect to find all body shapes, types, heights, ages, gender, and all sorts of profiles in the climbing community? Because you don’t need to be the “athletic type” to get into the sport, you’ll soon discover that there are lots of people – and different types of interesting people – to meet and join you in your climbing journey. 
Picture
Spectators / Cheerers on a bouldering session in the gym.
​The climbing community fosters a friendly environment. Most climbers and gym instructors will be happy to share advice because everyone knows how bad it feels to be helpless on a climb. Everyone was a beginner once. So even if you don’t know the person who’s climbing, it’s in the climbers’ nature to cheer other climbers on. 

Put these all together and it’s fairly easy to forget that you initially went to the gym to just workout. 
 
You’ll find yourself challenged by a route or a boulder problem, and will look for ways to make it happen for you. You’ll meet new people. You'll setup climbing dates with the friends you’ve made. Or you can start inviting your own friends or make it a family activity. You’ll be logging in more hours in the gym because you'll each have your own boulder problem that you want to finish. Or, if you prefer, you can also work on routes by yourself -- with your headphones, at your own time -- because climbing training can be done alone, anyway.

Sure, you’ll still feel the sweat and grime (all the time). But because you'll be consumed by almost getting to that last hold and giving it one last try for the 100th time, before you know it, your overall physique would have balanced out (you would've lost weight if you were bulky, or gained muscle if you were normally just skin and bones) and improved your general fitness.
 
But the bigger gain, I think, is how the sport gets the mind into great shape.

While climbing's most obvious lesson is facing our fear of heights, the truth is, climbing feeds our brain with a handful of valuable life skills, such as discipline, focus, patience, determination, and acceptance, among many others. 

​In my experience, it taught me to be more aware of what's possible or not; of my own potential as a person. It gave me confidence even outside the walls of the gym. It gave me courage to test my limits, and to occasionally jump into “what if’s”; things that were unthinkable for my naturally timid, safe personality.

But please, don't just take it from me. Though my 15+ years of climbing has seen far too many sound minds and bodies with crazy-fulfilled grins to count, you'll really only need a few climbing sessions to understand what I'm talking about.

This completes our list of five things to expect when getting into the sport of climbing. We hope you found the anecdotes and tips insightful. If you find them bitin, you can also check out the key resources and other related links below. 

We'd also love to hear your own stories. Do you have similar experiences when you first started climbing? Do you wish there were other things on this list that we missed out? Feel free to comment so we can plan for an updated post in the future.

Thanks for dropping by. Here's to getting ready for the climb, the grime, and all the fun that goes with it. Keep calm and climb on!

From Dreaming to Doing: Opening Kiokong&apos;s Great White Wall https://sport-topics.com/from-dreaming-to-doing-opening-kiokongs-great-white-wall https://sport-topics.com/from-dreaming-to-doing-opening-kiokongs-great-white-wall Words by Noel Cabauatan. Photos by Nick Aguilos and Arjun'a Actub.
​Mackie Makinano and his team are definitely pushing the boundaries of Philippine climbing with their recent feat of bolting and free climbing one of Quezon, Bukidnon's biggest walls.
 
"Unang bolt pa lang, tuwang-tuwa na ako," 
"Even with just the first bolt in, I was already happy"
​The dream was created way back in 1999, when Kuya Mackie first laid eyes on Kiokong's Great White Wall. With its entire height exposed to you straight off from the highway, no climber, least of all Kuya Mackie, wouldn't want to explore the intricacies of this beast.

While a handful of routes were initially bolted 21 years ago, it was only in 2017, through the efforts of the local mountaineering community in partnership with the Bukidnon Local Government, did climbing development in Kiokong formally, and officially, begin.
Picture
Photo by Arjun'a Actub
​The excitement and determination swelled so much not just inside of Kuya Mackie, but within the whole Philippine climbing community, that in just a little over two years, the QZN Bolting Team was able to raise enough funds to setup over 200 routes in the municipality.
 
Fresh from celebrating the arrival of a new decade, Mackie and his bolting team set out on January 6, 2020 to Quezon, Bukidnon with establishing Kiokong's Great White Wall as their objective.
The west faced cliff proved to be a challenge to bolt. The team would have to start their day early; any later than noon and the sun would be well over them.
On the average, a day’s work would contribute a single pitch—cleaned and bolted. Kuya Mack recalls having to abseil at 4:30 PM one day just to finish a pitch where its anchors would be useful for the next day.
He doesn't fail to mention the scorching heat both from the sun and the rock. The thirst and fatigue was one of a kind, he said, that even a sized-up pair of Testarossas didn’t stop his feet from hurting.
Picture
Photo by Arjun'a Actub
But through team effort, the last bolt was placed, and the anchors were set. Just another day for the team making Philippine climbing history.
The wall is described as slightly overhanging; there is at least a daunting 100 meters of white limestone looking down on you right before you begin your climb. Falling would have you hanging in the air, meters away from the wall. The route, varied with its different features and formations, tests all of a climbers' repertoire of beta.

​But the true crux of the route lies on preparing as best as you can and staying alert through the entire climb: considering the state of yourself, your partner and your surroundings.

Aside from the skills required to set up your own anchors, climb/belay, and abseil, rockfall is inevitable, especially for this freshly-bolted line.
​Slow progress through technical terrain is not a bad thing, but an immediate consequence would be the scorching heat of the sun. Nonetheless, as with the sport in general, the balance of safety and risk is what gives it its sense of adventure.
We asked Kuya Mackie to share their experience of making the first ascent of such an iconic route, but in response, he simply suggests for all those curious to reach out to the rest of the team: Arjun Actub, Lorenz Pring, Mikhail Gorra, Monyen Rivera, and Repa Pips.

Reach out to the team, he says, they have their own thrill and excitement to share.
At his current state, with all the bolting work done and dusted, the hype of the first ascent simmers in contrast to making irrefutable progress on his dream of making Quezon, Bukidnon the rock climbing capital of the Philippines.

​From hurdling initial access issues and raising enough funds, down to putting together a team to see the project through, Kuya Mackie was able to establish the longest and tallest multi-pitch line in the country.
​We share in Kuya Mackie’s gratitude towards the incredible support he received from Pinoy climbers all over. Notwithstanding our appreciation for his hard work, in particular, we’re grateful for the stoke that this growing community provides through its spirit of “bayanihan”.

​So many individuals pitched in to make the project a success, and we witnessed it from both newbies and oldies, gym rats and seasoned rock climbers, through help donated in various forms: time, money, and whatever personal skills or resources each one had.

​It couldn't be helped, but a climber thrives in looking for more challenges, and in learning as much from what the rock has to offer.
Kuya Mackie is confident that the momentum doesn’t end at this milestone. The first route of the multi-pitch, which is also the line’s most difficult pitch at 6c, leads to many more possibilities.
​He mentions of more complex features on all directions away from this first pitch (complex could possibly mean harder) that we may still believe a lot has to happen for us to try, and for now as climbers, we can only dream.

​Thankfully for Kuya Mackie, dreaming won't have to take another decade. There's the first route already – this striking line literally set in stone – a second one is far from impossible.
​The Philippine Bolting team would once again like to thank all those who've supported them:

#OspreyPH
#BlackDiamondPH
#LGUQuezonBukidnon

Norwegian triathlete first to go sub&7 in full distance triathlon https://sport-topics.com/norwegian-triathlete-first-to-go-sub-7-in-full-distance-triathlon https://sport-topics.com/norwegian-triathlete-first-to-go-sub-7-in-full-distance-triathlon Norwegian Olympic gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt became the first man to go sub-seven hours in an Ironman distance triathlon

(Reuters) – Norwegian Olympic gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt became the first man to go sub-seven hours in an Ironman distance triathlon while Briton Kat Mathews went sub-eight to rewrite the history books at the Sub 7/Sub 8 event in Brandenburg on Sunday.

The event allowed the triathletes to use pacemakers in all three disciplines—a 3.8-kilometer swim, a 180-kilometer bike ride, and a 42-kilometer run—and Blummenfelt finished with an astonishing time of 6:44:25.

His British rival Joe Skipper, who took on the challenge on a week’s notice after twice-Olympic champ Alistair Brownlee pulled out with an injury, also finished under seven hours (6:47:36).

“It was full gas from the gun and I almost went down there early on the bike. That got my heart rate up,” Blummenfelt said.

“It was full gas from the gun and I almost went down there early on the bike. That got my heart rate up,” Kristian Blummenfelt said

“And it was a tough day… It was brutal just to stay on the wheel to these guys. And also a massive thanks to Joe and his team for the tough battle.”

Earlier, British army captain Matthews benefited from 10 pacemakers and became the first woman to finish in under eight hours, clocking 7:31:54.

“I’m feeling a whole load of emotions, but the main one in gratitude for the whole team around me. Honestly of all the triathlons of the whole world, this is about the team,” she said.

“I felt like I was letting them down all day. I was hitting the limit and I thought I was going to lose it, but the support on the sideline gave me the motivation to push on.”

The times recorded will not be considered world records as the event format was designed to break the sub-seven and sub-eight barriers.

3 power metrics you need to use right now https://sport-topics.com/3-power-metrics-you-need-to-use-right-now https://sport-topics.com/3-power-metrics-you-need-to-use-right-now These power metrics could potentially unlock how you train and race—and eventually become a better triathlete

Photo by Don Velasco

Power meters are so common now that it’s easy to forget how scarce they were just a decade ago.

When I got my first power meter sometime in 2010, it was so expensive that it cost almost as much as my entry-level road bike. It was also so uncommon at the time that you could barely find one on the road. Back then, training centered on power and data was also somewhat unpopular with coaches and athletes that it’s easy to look past it and buy bling aero wheels instead.

I saw things differently though. I was willing to invest in an expensive piece of equipment since I came from a computer and data-based background. I knew that by quantifying my efforts in training, I could learn more about my body and push it to its limits. 

People underutilize the data from these devices and treat them as expensive speedometers: a passive way to record effort rather than an active way of influencing training

And truth be told, the single most important thing that contributed to my racing success was using a power meter.

These days, it’s pretty easy to find a cheap power meter for a quarter of the price it cost a decade ago. It’s so ubiquitous that a lot of people forget how much engineering and precision it takes to produce one of these devices. 

Moreover, a lot of people underutilize the data we get from these devices and in effect, treat them as expensive speedometers: a passive way to record effort rather than an active way of influencing training. With this in mind, let me share some power metrics that could potentially unlock how you train and race.

Normalized power

It’s normal to stop pedaling when you ride outside. This is an inherent part of cycling, but it largely affects the average power we produce during a ride. For example, compare these two efforts: 150w at 10 minutes and 300w for 5 minutes followed by 5 minutes of not pedaling. Which one feels more difficult? The latter, right?

♬ You – Naykilla

However, from a data standpoint, both produce the same average power (AP). This is confusing and outright misleading for a lot of people. This is where normalized power (NP) comes in. 

NP is basically an algorithm that computes the “load” of a particular segment of data. Instead of averaging it, it removes peaks and valleys from the data to effectively create a smoother, more realistic representation of data. This comes in handy in the real world especially if you’re riding a segment that doesn’t require you to pedal continuously at a steady effort.

Variability index

Variability index (VI) is basically your NP divided by your AP. This shows how steady or punchy your effort is. If you hold a steady effort, your NP and AP are going to be very close to each other, resulting in a VI of close to 1. 

Variability index is basically your normalized power divided by your average power. This shows how steady or punchy your effort is

If you’re surging and backing off constantly, your VI will be higher than 1 and realistically have a value close or higher than 1.1. Efforts higher than 1.1 usually mean you had a lot of peaks and valleys during a ride or effort. 

In some cases this is unavoidable (e.g. hills and criteriums) but if you were time trialing or racing a triathlon, it takes a lot out of your legs. Remember, every time you surge, you’re burning matches and you have a limited number of matches available to you. Holding a steady smooth effort usually results in faster times and fresher legs come T2.

Aerobic decoupling

Aerobic decoupling is not a metric you can easily get from data unless you have more advanced software like WKO or Golden Cheetah. Basically, it’s how your heart rate increases for the same effort or wattage. 

@flyingdonv

Check out the things I like about the @Garmin Philippines Edge 830 #FlyingDonVCoaching#KnowYourNumbers#TrainSmartChampionsBleedwww.flyingdonv.com

♬ Pump – Valentino Khan

Let me simplify things: Think of your power as your independent variable, something you can control and manipulate. Heart rate, on the other hand, is your dependent variable, something that is an outcome of any changes you make to your independent variable (power). 

In a perfect world, if you hold 150w, your heart rate will be constant no matter how long you hold 150w. However, in the real world, fatigue, dehydration, and other external variables also affect the heart rate. This means that as the workout progresses, your heart rate will increase even if you hold 150w exactly. 

From experience, taking a look at these data points can allow you to plan around your training

A good sign that you’re aerobically strong for that particular power and duration mix is if your aerobic decoupling is below 110 percent. That means your HR increased by 10 percent or less during that particular ride. If it went up more than 110 percent despite holding a steady wattage, you’d probably need to look at dialing back your power or increasing your fluid and fuel intake.

There is definitely more information you can extract out of your ride data, but these metrics can get you off on the right foot. From experience, taking a look at these data points can allow you to plan around your training. Taking them into account can help you train better, pace yourself better, and nail that perfect bike split.

Have some training questions, feedback or suggestions for future articles? Drop a note in the comments section below or on FacebookTwitter or Instagram. You can also get in touch with Don directly here.

Transgender athletes to compete in ‘open’ category under new British Triathlon policy https://sport-topics.com/transgender-athletes-to-compete-in-open-category-under-new-british-triathlon-policy https://sport-topics.com/transgender-athletes-to-compete-in-open-category-under-new-british-triathlon-policy The new policy would see over-12 transgender athletes race in an open category alongside males, transgender, and non-binary who were male sex at birth

Photo by Ryunosuke Kikuno/Unsplash

(Reuters) – British triathlon has banned transgender athletes from competing in the female category at the elite and grassroots levels, instead allowing them to participate in an “open” category alongside men, the governing body said on Wednesday.

The move follows the decision of swimming’s world governing body FINA to restrict the participation of transgender athletes in elite women’s competitions.

“British Triathlon has reviewed its Transgender Policy… to ensure that it reflects the needs of our sport, protects fairness in competition and serves our desire to make triathlon truly inclusive,” it said in a statement.

It said triathlon was a gender-affected sport and the new policy would see transgender athletes above the age of 12 feature in an open category “for all individuals including male, transgender and those non-binary who were male sex at birth.”

“British Triathlon has reviewed its Transgender Policy… to ensure that it reflects the needs of our sport, protects fairness in competition and serves our desire to make triathlon truly inclusive,” it said in a statement

A separate female category would be reserved “for those who are the female sex at birth.” The guidelines will come into effect from Jan. 1 next year.

“We started this process at the end of 2021 and went through a period of independent consultation… this ensured that along with the latest research, we heard from our community, key groups, and individuals,” said British Triathlon.

World Athletics and FIFA are among a number of federations reviewing their guidelines on the involvement of transgender athletes following FINA’s ruling, which is the strictest by any Olympic sports body.

While FINA engaged leading scientists on the taskforce which drew up its rules, advocates for transgender inclusion argue that not enough studies have yet been done on the impact of transition on physical performance.

Pogacar admits lack of self&confidence, vows to fight on Tour de France https://sport-topics.com/pogacar-admits-lack-of-self-confidence-vows-to-fight-on-tour-de-france https://sport-topics.com/pogacar-admits-lack-of-self-confidence-vows-to-fight-on-tour-de-france Slovenia’s Tadej Pogacar confesses that he could have been stronger today but is still optimistic about his Tour de France chances in the third week

By Julien Pretot | Lead photo by Papon Bernard/Reuters

L’Alpe d’Huez, France (Reuters) – Tadej Pogacar attacked Tour de France overall leader Jonas Vingegaard twice in the ascent to L’Alpe d’Huez on Thursday in a bid to reclaim the yellow jersey but the defending champion admitted lacking a bit of self-confidence a day after cracking in a grueling Alpine stage.

Vingegaard’s Jumbo-Visma set a devilish pace in the first part of the 13.8-kilometer climb at 8.1 percent, preventing any attack from the 23-year-old, who lost some three minutes when he came under fire from the Dane’s team on Wednesday.

It was only with less than four kilometers to go that Pogacar could make his first move and Vingegaard followed easily, also barely getting out of the saddle when the second attack came.

“He did some good attacks, he was strong today and luckily I was able to follow him,” Vingegaard told reporters. “He looked strong. In the end I was there so today was a good day.”

Vingegaard leads second-placed Pogacar by two minutes 22 seconds after the two big Alpine stages but the Slovenian promised he would continue to fight, looking ahead to the Pyrenees in the third week.

“I think after yesterday I was not as confident as I thought I’d be,” Pogacar said candidly the day after the biggest defeat of his career.

“I could have been stronger today but I’m ok with the result, it’s still a long way to go, the Tour is not over.”

“I know why I suffered yesterday, this will not happen again. I’m pretty confident. Jonas is super super strong but I need to find a way to regain some minutes.”

Race preview: 2022 Ironman 70.3 Philippines https://sport-topics.com/race-preview-2022-ironman-703-philippines https://sport-topics.com/race-preview-2022-ironman-703-philippines The 2022 Ironman 70.3 Philippines is returning to Cebu with an all-new race course designed to challenge everyone

Photos by Samantha Ong and from Ironman 70.3 Philippines

Ironman 70.3 Philippines in Cebu is the longest running half Ironman distance race in the country. For almost a decade, it has been one of my favorite races and I’ve always tried to join every edition when I can. Not only is Cebu an attractive tourist destination where you can race then kick back and enjoy, the course itself is always something to remember.

In the past, we’ve seen various changes to the course. This year is no different; the new courses for the swim, bike, and run are the most radical changes yet in event history. In this race preview, we’re going to discuss what to expect at the 2022 Ironman 70.3 Philippines.

Swim

For the first time, the swim will take place outside Shangri-La Mactan. However, don’t expect any major changes as the new swim course is only a few hundred meters from the swim start we’re familiar with. Taking place in Mactan Newtown, the swim will still traverse the same strait and we will probably experience the same conditions.

2022 Ironman 70.2 Philippines swim course

The swim course around this area is somewhat unpredictable. In the past, we’ve had instances in which everyone was blazingly fast because of the current. However, more often than not, we’ve had to swim against the current, which resulted in slower times than normal.

I’ve seen a lot of athletes try to squeeze themselves into earlier zones (even if they’re not qualified yet) expecting to either have an easier time or more time to finish the race. I strongly advise against this for a number of reasons. First, you’ll slow down faster swimmers and risk getting pummeled. Second, an earlier swim time doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be faster because of the current. We’ve had races where those positioned in the middle or end of the pack were helped by the current.

“My tip for the swim course is to work on maintaining a steady yet strong effort for the long sections of the course. Don’t go too hard too early and instead work on building up your pace as you traverse the course”

Lastly, your swim cut-off time is dependent on when you start the course. In fact, the cut-off time is based on when the last swimmer begins. This means you’ll still be disqualified even if you start in Zone 1 but finish past the cut-off time of 1:10.

My tip for the swim course is to work on maintaining a steady yet strong effort for the long sections of the course. Don’t go too hard too early and instead work on building up your pace as you traverse the course. Sighting isn’t generally a problem (if you’re a right side breather) as you’ll swim in a clockwise route. Nonetheless, aim to sight every six to eight strokes as this will help you avoid zigzagging in the open water.

Bike

The bike route makes its way along the newly opened Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) towards South Road Properties (SRP). This has a few repercussions for participants and non-participants alike. First, we will no longer need to pass through the main road going to the airport and this will largely decongest traffic on race day.

Second, we’ll need to pass through smaller back roads towards CCLEX and this means more crowded areas with spectators. A few tips: Take extra caution especially with all the people lined up and don’t forget to bring a flat repair kit as I’ve seen a lot of people suffer flats on similar roads.

Once you make your way to CCLEX, forget about the M-Loop of years past and instead remember that you’ll have to do this part of the course three times. This is the first time CCLEX will be used in this race so I don’t have any experience about it. However, talking to race organizers and a few local athletes, expect the following: lots of crosswinds, a steady ascent, and smooth paved roads.

“This is the first time CCLEX will be used in this race so I don’t have any experience about it. However, talking to race organizers and a few local athletes, expect the following: lots of crosswinds, a steady ascent, and smooth paved roads”

The winds in Cebu are nothing new. The SRP has always been a “wind tunnel” and would surely test your calmness and handling skills. This year takes it up a few notches since the bridge is elevated and above water.

This means you’ll experience stronger winds but is mitigated by the fact that roads are a bit wider than before. Stay on the right and don’t hog the middle; this will prevent any untoward incidents.

The other obstacle we must overcome is the climb on the bridge. GPS data suggests it has an average gradient close to four percent and peaks at around seven to eight percent. This is by no means a difficult climb but it will definitely test your fitness and leg strength. Just make sure you’re able to shift your front chainring properly as you’ll probably need to use your “granny gear” more often this time around.

Lastly, since the roads are newly paved, the asphalt is said to be top-notch. This is definitely a welcome change as rough roads are slower and less friendly to our bottoms.

Run

The run takes place along the familiar and spectator-friendly Punta Engaño Road. This year though, having crowds of spectators is not encouraged for health reasons. This route seems to be a bit easier as the “microwave” portion (the stretch of open road towards the end) of the run course has been omitted.

Most of the run will take place in relatively shaded parts with the exception of the Amisa run loop—a hot but manageable loop. Sunrise Events always does a great job of keeping the hydration stations well-prepared but don’t forget that you should bring your own nutrition throughout the race. The run course consists of two loops and finishes in the heart of Mactan Newtown.

Once you cross the finish line, one thing will definitely resound with you: You just completed one of the best races in the Philippines—and maybe even Southeast Asia. Let me assure you, a few hours later (once you’ve recovered), you’ll be itching to sign up for next year’s edition.

World Triathlon approves transgender participation policy https://sport-topics.com/world-triathlon-approves-transgender-participation-policy https://sport-topics.com/world-triathlon-approves-transgender-participation-policy To be able to compete as females, transgender athletes will need to keep testosterone concentration under 2.5 nanomoles per liter continuously for at least two years

(Reuters) – World Triathlon approved a policy that requires transgender athletes to show their testosterone concentration is less than 2.5 nanomoles per liter continuously for at least two years to compete as females, the governing body said on Wednesday.

The governing body added at least 48 months must have elapsed since the transgender athlete has competed as a male in any sporting competition.

The policy, formed after consulting athletes, medical, and legal experts among others, will be put in place in 30 days.

“We have been studying this matter for over a year, we have listened to the voices of all World Triathlon stakeholders,” World Triathlon president Marisol Casado said.

“The policy that we have just approved shows that we are prioritizing the fairness principle but showing inclusiveness,” said World Triathlon president Marisol Casado

“We are a small international federation, but one that has always had inclusion and gender balance in our DNA. The policy that we have just approved shows that we are prioritizing the fairness principle but showing inclusiveness.”

“It is fully aligned with the IOC’s recommendation, and similar to what other international federations have done in the last months.”

The International Olympic Committee said in November that no athlete should be excluded from competition on the grounds of a perceived unfair advantage due to their gender as it released a new framework on transgender inclusion.

But it added it was not in a position to issue regulations that define eligibility criteria for every sport, leaving it up to federations to determine if an athlete was at a disproportionate advantage.

World Athletics and FIFA are among federations that are also reviewing guidelines on the involvement of transgender athletes following world swimming body FINA’s ruling to ban anyone who has been through male puberty from elite women’s competitions.

Last month, British Triathlon banned transgender athletes from competing under the female category at the elite as well as grassroots levels, instead allowing them to participate in an “open” category alongside men.

World Triathlon will monitor the situation and be open to reviewing its policy, Casado added.

How do you win a duathlon after COVID? Do things right, not push yourself hard https://sport-topics.com/how-do-you-win-a-duathlon-after-covid-do-things-right-not-push-yourself-hard https://sport-topics.com/how-do-you-win-a-duathlon-after-covid-do-things-right-not-push-yourself-hard This is how you bounce back from COVID: Win Titan 77.7 Philippines in your age group

In my previous article, I discussed how I got COVID-19 and my experience with the disease. Over the week or so after my isolation (with my doctor’s approval), I gradually regained my fitness. I had to be extremely patient though as the body wasn’t responding well at first.

Luckily, I still had some fitness leftover from my Ironman 70.3 race in Cebu so despite “undertraining” for the Titan 77.7 duathlon held in Clark, I was able to finish strong. Here’s how the race went:

Pre-race

I wasn’t able to do my normal taper for this distance since there wasn’t much to taper from. I did shorter workouts for a few days prior to the race and tried to get the legs going in the process.

I didn’t reach 100 kilometers in training but I did try to surpass 21 kilometers for a long run (total run was 25 kilometers for Titan 77.7). I felt okay with this since I didn’t have any choice. I just told myself I’ll dial back on race intensity and see where I’m at in terms of ranking

I didn’t reach 100 kilometers in training but I did try to surpass 21 kilometers for a long run (total run was 25 kilometers for Titan 77.7). I felt okay with this since I didn’t have any choice. I just told myself I’ll dial back on race intensity and see where I’m at in terms of ranking.

My other concern was that my measured carb dependency was extremely high because of the hiatus from training. I knew I had to load up with fuel before, during, and after.

The first run

The first run was more of a warm-up, a four-kilometer run that I initially planned to finish in 16:30. Legs felt great and we were able to clock in sub-16 mins. I knew this was irrelevant in terms of the grand scheme of things as the bike was 100 kilometers long. I took one Maurten Gel 100 here and replenished my hydration levels with a few cups of water.

The Titan 77.7 bike leg

The bike leg was a monster. Not only was it 100 kilometers long, it was 100 kilometers with close to 700 meters of climbing. This was thanks to the 4x climb up the infamous “wall” of Clark. While it’s not particularly steep, the length and gradual increase in gradient saps you of speed and motivation. Add the lack of foliage and shade and it was like an oven out there.

The rest of the course was rather flat but with up to four U-turns each loop, you’re forced to slow down and accelerate. This not only drops average speed drastically, you also burn a lot of matches if you don’t approach it intelligently.

My goal during this race was to avoid going above my aerobic threshold for extended periods. This, paired with the undulating profile of the course, meant my normalized power was rather low. However, this gave me the best chance of running well off the bike.

The bike leg was a monster. Not only was it 100 kilometers long, it was 100 kilometers with close to 700 meters of climbing

To also aid my chances of finishing strong, I loaded up with nutrition that works well with my gut. I usually take Vitargo for long races but I opted to use this for my carb-loading and pre-race drink and shifted to Maurten’s Mix 320 for this race. The main difference is that the sense of satiety of Maurten is a lot lower.

While this isn’t desirable, it was perfect for me in this scenario. In doing so, I was able to consume up to 120 grams of carbs per hour. This was crucial as it’s easier for the body to absorb nutrition on the bike versus on the run. I didn’t need to play catch-up on the run as compared to my race in Cebu, where I crashed on the bike leg.

The second run

The last run was a doozy. It consisted of three loops with three U-turns per loop; there were also multiple turns along the course which, as mentioned, killed average speed. The change in speed/direction also makes you more susceptible to cramping if you overdo it.

The goal was simple: Hold a comfortable pace all throughout. I let my legs settle down off the bike before I decided on the pace I wanted to run at. I felt pretty strong after the bike (despite some chafing and sore feet). I tried to hold around 4:30 to 4:50 minutes/kilometer and it felt manageable. The weather cooperated since there was an overcast but there wasn’t any discernible wind. I had to lift up my sunglasses multiple times to feel the sensation of the wind and this helped with perceived exertion.

I walked all of the aid stations to make sure I was drinking enough and that I was taking enough fuel. The close proximity of each aid station meant I was able to down one Maurten Gel 100 every 15 minutes. Its jelly-like texture made it easy to swallow. I was no longer gagging or had that sticky sensation in my throat (unlike other brands). I also had some pickle juice anti-cramp drinks handy for that sense of available “insurance policy.” Luckily, consuming enough nutrition and fluids staved off any semblance of cramps. I didn’t even need to take extra electrolytes.

For my first post-COVID competition, I lowered my expectations and instead focused on doing things right. It worked for me as pressure was less pronounced (maybe except for the second loop on the run)

My laps were steady for each of the three loops. I didn’t really expect to land on the top of the podium but I was lucky enough to do so. For my first post-COVID competition, I lowered my expectations and instead focused on doing things right. It worked for me as pressure was less pronounced (maybe except for the second loop on the run).

At the end of the day, this was a great way to bounce back after my mishap in Cebu. The tough course and difficult predicament I had surrounding it made this race all the more sweeter.

‘One rabbit at a time’ says marathon magician Kipchoge after smashing record https://sport-topics.com/one-rabbit-at-a-time-says-marathon-magician-kipchoge-after-smashing-record https://sport-topics.com/one-rabbit-at-a-time-says-marathon-magician-kipchoge-after-smashing-record “I always say I don’t believe in limits, I know what limits are, I always say no human is limited,” says Eliud Kipchoge

Kenyan great Eliud Kipchoge smashed his own marathon world record in Berlin on Sunday but was coy over future plans and tackling the mythical two-hour mark saying “one rabbit at a time.”

The 37-year-old lit up an overcast morning in the German capital, lowering his old mark by half a minute with a new best time of 2:01:09. He told the post-race press conference “you will see” what will come next, but hinted Berlin had not seen the last of him.

“I am African and in Africa we believe you chase one rabbit at a time,” a smiling Kipchoge said. “So the rabbit we chased as a team was the Berlin Marathon 2022.”

At the halfway point passed at 59:51, the back-to-back Olympic champion in Rio and Tokyo looked set to become the first to officially run under the elusive two-hour mark.

“I am African and in Africa we believe you chase one rabbit at a time,” a smiling Eliud Kipchoge said. “So the rabbit we chased as a team was the Berlin Marathon 2022”

But despite slowing slightly, Kipchoge held on to best his own record of 2:01:39 from Berlin in 2018.

In the women’s field, Ethiopian Tigist Assefa ran the third fastest time in history, setting a course record of 2:15:37. Assefa was not among the pre-race favorites and sensationally beat her previous best by 18 minutes.

Kipchoge said he was the “happiest man” when he crossed the finish line and had “no regrets” about coming so close to the two-hour mark.

He has already run a marathon in under two hours, in Vienna in 2019, but the feat was not recognized as the official world record as it was not in open competition and he used a team of rotating pacemakers.

He thanked the “wonderful” locals for their support, saying “Berlin is the best.”

Berlin is a place where anybody has a chance to push their limits,” added Kipchoge, who has now won the event a record-equalling four times.

“I always say I don’t believe in limits, I know what limits are, I always say no human is limited”

“I always say I don’t believe in limits, I know what limits are, I always say no human is limited.”

Kenyan Mark Korir finished second behind his countryman on the flat circuit with a time of 2:05:58, while Ethiopian Tadu Abate came third with 2:06:28.

Ethiopian Andamlak Belihu, who kept up with Kipchoge for around two thirds of the race, held on for fourth. Korir thanked Kipchoge and the people of Berlin for “a fantastic race.” “I am so happy to have run with a legend,” Korir said.

Women’s course record broken

Kipchoge, who on Friday said his only goal was “to run a good race”, burst out of the blocks, clearly aiming not only for a world record but to beat the two-hour mark.

A pod of around seven runners kept up with Kipchoge for the first 10 kilometers, before 2021 winner Guye Adola and Belihiu pulled away after 15 kilometers.

Adola was unable to maintain the pace and began to fall back after 18 kilometers, with both Kipchoge and Belihu reaching the half marathon mark in less than an hour.

Kipchoge emerged on his own after 25 kilometers and was still on pace for the sub-two-hour, but began to slow slightly despite still keeping the world record in his sights

Kipchoge emerged on his own after 25 kilometers and was still on pace for the sub-two-hour, but began to slow slightly despite still keeping the world record in his sights.

He joined Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie, who owned the event from 2006 to 2009, as the only men to have won four Berlin Marathons.

He boasts an unmatched record over the marathon, having now won 15 of his 17 career outings over the event, including not only his two Olympic triumphs but also 10 World Marathon Majors victories.

The women’s field was also one of the fastest in marathon history, with four women led by Assefa beating the two hour and 20 minute mark. Only one of the women taking part in Berlin, American Kiera D’Amato, had previously run under the landmark time.

Kenyan Rosemary Wanjiru came second with a time of 2:18:00 in her first ever marathon, making it the second fastest debut time ever recorded by a woman.

Ethiopian Tigist Abayechew came third in 2:18:03, while countrywoman Workenesh Edesa also ran under the 2:20:00 mark. D’Amato came sixth with a time of 2:21:48.

Norway’s Gustav Iden wins Ironman World Championship in record time https://sport-topics.com/norways-gustav-iden-wins-ironman-world-championship-in-record-time https://sport-topics.com/norways-gustav-iden-wins-ironman-world-championship-in-record-time Not only is Gustav Iden the second consecutive Norwegian to win the men’s world title, he also shattered Jan Frodeno’s 2019 course record

(Reuters) – Gustav Iden won his first Ironman World Championship in a course record time in Hawaii on Saturday, becoming the second straight Norwegian to win the men’s event.

Iden produced strong performances in the swim and bike legs before clocking 2:36:15 on the run to chase down France’s Sam Laidlow and clinch victory with an overall time of 7:40:24 on the Big Island.

Laidlow finished second and Iden’s compatriot Kristian Blummenfelt, who won in 2021, claimed third place.

“That was so freaking hard,” said Iden, two-time winner of the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

“The last 10 kilometers, I was worried about the legend of the island killing me. Everything was going pretty smoothly up until I caught Sam.

“That was so freaking hard,” said Gustav Iden, two-time winner of the Ironman 70.3 World Championships

“Then when I passed him, the island really tried to put me down. I’m so proud of Sam and Kristian—even though Kristian should’ve come second.”

American Chelsea Sodaro stormed to victory in the women’s event on Thursday, 18 months after giving birth to her daughter.

The Ironman comprises a 3.8-kilometer swim, 180-kilometer bike ride, and 42.2-kilometer run. The race was first held in 1978 to settle a friendly argument among Hawaiian endurance athletes as to who was the fittest.

The ‘revolutionary’ Paris 2024 marathon course will be open to the public https://sport-topics.com/the-revolutionary-paris-2024-marathon-course-will-be-open-to-the-public https://sport-topics.com/the-revolutionary-paris-2024-marathon-course-will-be-open-to-the-public Up to 20,024 non-Olympians will be allowed to run the Paris 2024 marathon course that traces the path of the French Revolution

Paris (Reuters) -Competitors in the marathon at the Paris 2024 Olympics will run from central Paris to Versailles and back, on a course designed to salute women and trace one of the pivotal historic events of the French Revolution.

The marathon route unveiled on Wednesday was modeled on the path of the October 1789 Women’s March on Versailles—when thousands, mainly female market traders furious over the price of bread, marched to the lavish palace of King Louis XVI.

They forced him to return with them to the center of the capital in an event that historians say ended the absolute power of the monarchy.

“We’re trying to give some meaning to our events and choosing this course was a good way to do it,” Paris 2024 boss Tony Estanguet told Reuters. “We really want to innovate.”

For the first time since women began running the Olympic marathon in 1984, women will conclude the athletics program, with their marathon coming a day after the men’s event.

“Women first. We wanted to celebrate women,” Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo told a news conference.

“Paris is a place of revolution. It’s a revolutionary city, so this course makes sense,” added Valerie Pecresse, the head of the Ile de France (greater Paris) region.

Organizers have also added two mass events—a marathon and a 10-kilometer run—to allow non-Olympians to run the course. Each will be open to 20,024 participants.

“Our country proclaims loud and clear that high-level sport must more than ever be a source of inspiration for all generations while driving mass participation,” French Sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera said.

“Sport has the power to positively transform society: Let us give it every means to do so.”

The marathon course will pass Parisian monuments including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Palais Garnier, the Jardin des Tuileries, and several world-famous bridges.

“Beyond a doubt, the Paris 2024 marathon will have something special about it. To perform in such an impressive setting, in a place so charged with history and symbolism, will be a unique experience,” said two-time Olympic champion and world record holder Eliud Kipchoge. “I could not ask for a more perfect race for the Games.”

It will also be an unusually challenging route, with 438 meters of altitude gain.

“It appears to be more demanding than normal,” World Athletics president Sebastian Coe told Reuters. “Clearly it’s a marathon that will be challenging. But some marathon runners prefer undulating courses.”
