Most triathletes have limited time to train due to juggling family and work commitments as well as trying to balance and refine three demanding sports simultaneously. Bike and run workouts are easier to fit into a hectic schedule as they require less planning to incorporate them into your day. Unlike running, where you can just slip on your running shoes and hit the pavement virtually anywhere, finding and getting to a pool can be more challenging. Here are my tips on how to use that valuable swim time most effectively. Improving your swim times really comes down to having good and effective technique, reducing drag in the water and increasing endurance and strength.

What you eat and drink along with the type of exercise you partake in all play important roles in bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition where bones become weak, fragile and fracture more easily due to loss of calcium and other minerals. Although symptoms of this condition are associated with aging, the process can begin much earlier. Studies have shown that highly active individuals who restrict calories leading to low body weight, nutrient deficiencies and menstrual disturbances when ignored, can lead to premature bone thinning and osteoporosis. It is essential that daily strategies for achieving optimal bone health are being met.
Lionel Sanders, a member of the 2014 Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series Ambassador Team, will take on Ironman 70.3 Texas in Galveston on Sunday April 6.
In his latest blog post, Lionel writes:
“So now I am in the most dreaded part of training and racing: The Taper. I am not doing a massively large taper into Texas 70.3, as my A+ race is in another month in St. George Utah, but I am definitely allowing myself some much needed recovery time. I haven’t raced a triathlon (aside from a short indoor tri in February) since Muskoka 70.3, so I am itching to get back out there. There is nothing I enjoy more than laying it out on the line in a big race…and judging by the bib list, Texas 70.3 may be the biggest race I have ever done.
The gun is set to go at 7 am Texas time, which is 8 am in Ontario. I sincerely thank my many supporters for allowing me to pursue my dream. I will be racing for you on Sunday.”

Triathlon Ontario is excited to announce their new Age Group Club Ambassador Program. This new initiative is intended to grow the sport of triathlon in local communities across Ontario.
Triathlon Ontario is giving each triathlon club the opportunity to nominate one member from your club to be your official liaison in the Club Ambassador Program. This select group of ambassadors will have a mandate to inform, inspire and represent Triathlon Ontario at local events in your community. The purpose of this program is to help grow age group membership and help roll out new value added and benefit driven programs for existing and potential new members. This is an exciting time for triathletes and at Triathlon Ontario, we want to create additional value for our age group members.
They will be onsite Saturday at bike check-in, onsite race morning for any last minute technical issues and will be supporting athletes with two vehicles on the bike course.
