If you want to be competitive in triathlon, you’ve got to be serious about the bike. I’ve been doing triathlons for 34 years and until I got serious about the bike, I was middle-of-the-pack. Being strong on the bike is crucial, not only to keep you in the mix during the bike, but to deliver you in a position to have a great run. If you are weak on the bike, you suffer on both accounts. I bought the CompuTrainer because I wanted to be superior on the bike. Since acquiring my CompuTrainer in 2009, I’ve had tremendous success because my cycling has improved dramatically. I have two age group victories in IM Arizona, a second at Couer d’ Alene, and a third at IM Canada, with three Kona appearances (two top-twenty) and a fourth this year. CompuTrainer gives me the ability to dial in my workouts – in particular interval workouts – which are the key to being a strong cyclist.

While I may not be a pro or even an elite athlete, Training on a CompuTrainer has taken me from being a back of the pack biker to sometimes podium winner. I was hooked on CompuTrainer when I saw the difference it made in my race times. The first Ironman 70.3 I completed using a different trainer and barely made the cut off time. However, in 2013 I started using a CompuTrainer and when I repeated that same 70.3 race in the Fall of 2013, I was able to cut over an hour and 20 min off my race time with the bulk of it in the bike leg. The workout quality was far better than any outdoor ride I could ever get due to traffic, daylight, route. The courses let me simulate race conditions and truly know the ups and downs. Plus the added benefit of being able to train at home while the kids are sleeping or taking it with me to the hotel near the hospitals when my son is having surgery is immeasurable! When I trained for my first full Ironman Chattanooga 90% of my rides was on the CompuTrainer having a blast beside my Teammates that are KONA qualifiers (Wes Hargrove, Harvey Gayer). I can’t say enough great things about CompuTrainer!
Amy Peavy-Smith – AG 40-45
This recap has been a log time coming and with my down time from training I now have some free time to write this. This past summer was the busiest to date I raced 10 duathlons, 2 running races, battled small injuries, hormone problems, my daughter was born and my mother was diagnosed with cancer. All this happened in such a short period of time that it has felt like a very long season.
My season started with a 10k road race to test my winter training and it was anything but fantastic. This was April and I had a bonk in my training in March. It was around this time my bodies hormones were so screwed up I was barely hanging on. After the 10k it was Iron Hawk Duathlon which annually I race as my season opener. This race also did not reflect all the hard training I had done all winter and I started to have heart rate issues as I battled running and cycling while on beta blockers (suppress heart beat).

The third annual Skechers Performance Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon presented by Recharge with Milk, took place September 18th , 2016. It was a chance for redemption, an opportunity to reclaim my Bike/Run title I won in 2014. In 2015, Brad Arndt put together an impressive 1:26:21 half marathon for the overall win, relegating me to a 2nd place finish. I lost it on the run of all places, witnessing a 9 minute lead to Brad dwindle away. I was beat by a stronger competitor but that didn’t make things any more palatable.
Barrelman is without question, a personal favourite of mine and for a number of reasons: (1) I won the Inaugural event! Any time you can put your stamp on a race, it immediately makes it more memorable, (2) the bike course is flat and fast and mimics the roads of Essex County. This allows me to train with race specificity in mind, (3) it’s a late season race; enabling athletes ample opportunity to tailor training for a peak performance, (4) iconic run course; passing the falls twice and finishing in the heart of Kingsbridge Park adjacent to the splash pad and the large covered pavilion, and (5) Race Director John Salt, who’s passion and attention to detail is outstanding. John goes out of his way to speak to as many competitors as possible, ensuring their experience is a memorable one. Read more
The stage is set for tomorrow’s #BarrelmanTri. The professional/elite race will be an intriguing event. Check out the list of pros/elites expected to vie for the title.

High winds led to rough lake conditions, thus leading to a cancellation of the swim, meaning that all competitors were biking and running only.
