"I'm excited to just put myself in it and be a part of it and give myself a chance. I think incredible things happen when you believe in yourself and stay in the here and now and give yourself the chance." On June 11, 2022, Brigham Young University graduate Courtney Wayment Smith made NCAA history. Competing at NCAA Championships, she ran the 3000m steeplechase in 9:16 — not only taking a commanding win, but breaking the collegiate national record (previously held by now-Olympian Courtney Frerichs) in the process. That time also put her at #5 on the all-time U.S. women's steeplechase list, behind Frerichs, Emma Coburn, Colleen Quigley, and Jenny Simpson. To celebrate, Courtney signed with an agent (Ray Flynn) and signed her first professional contract with On! The icing on the cake: Courtney competed at USATF Outdoor Championships this past weekend, where she finished second in the 3000m steeplechase, earning her a spot on Team USA heading into next month's World Athletics Championships. Needless to say, it's been an exciting summer for Courtney, who lives in Provo, UT, and will continue training with her BYU coach Diljeet Taylor.

For those who are interested in being a part of the celebration please email diversity@usatriathlon.org.   The five-month celebration will include the Together, We Thrive Powerful Women in Multisport Series, a social and digital content series that will focus on women who helped pave the way for women to compete in triathlon. To kick off the series, USA Triathlon has highlighted on its social media pages nine women in multisport who share what Title IX means to them in its Nine Days of Title IX celebration.   USA Triathlon will give 10 multisport women's legacy packages to influential women in multisport, which includes one USA Triathlon Lifetime Membership and one free entry to USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, USA Triathlon Multisport National Championships and the Toyota Legacy Triathlon. USA Triathlon will also award the inaugural Together, We Thrive Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access Award.   USA Triathlon is launching its Women's Series, a series of locally organized USA Triathlon Sanctioned events across the country designed to grow and support the women's multisport community, in 2023. Applications to be included in the series will be accepted July through August with the formal announcement of participating events coming in late fall. The series will include a combination of women's-only triathlons and duathlons, instructional clinics and social gatherings that will accommodate new athletes to experienced athletes.   1974: Triathlon was invented by the San Diego Track Club with the Mission Bay Triathlon. The club has a storied history of leading the way in gender equity   1978: Judy Collins and her husband, Commander John Collins, both participants in the 1974 Mission Bay Triathlon, launch the Hawaiian Iron Man Triathlon in Waikiki, which combined the Waikiki Roughwater Swim, Honolulu Marathon, and a local cycling club route.   1979: Lyn Lemaire, a 28-year-old from Massachusetts, becomes the first woman to compete in the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon. Lemaire beats all but four men in the 15-person field.   1982: U.S. triathlete Julie Moss captivates a global audience with her crawl to the finish line at the Hawaii Ironman.   1983: Sally Edwards publishes the first book on triathlon. “Triathlon: A Triple Fitness Sport,” offers a comprehensive guide for training for “a total new fitness” based on her own experience in the sport.   1986: Using funds from an anonymous donor, the Hawaii Ironman introduces a prize purse for professional athletes. And in a move unprecedented in many other major sporting events, the payout is equal for both men and women — a standard that remains the status quo.   1990: Danskin launches a women's-only triathlon series in three cities: Long Beach, California, San Jose, California, and New York City. The growth of the Danskin series, as well as similar women-only events like Trek Triathlon and Irongirl races, are credited with boosting numbers among women in the sport.   2000: Triathlon makes its Olympic debut at the Sydney Games. The United States sends a trio of women Down Under, including Joanna Zeiger, who finishes fourth.   2004: Susan Williams, a 35-year-old mom from Long Beach, California, wins the first Olympic medal for the U.S. in triathlon, earning bronze at the Athens Games.   2005: U.S. Olympian Barb Lindquist retires as a professional and helps create USA Triathlon's Collegiate Recruitment Program, which identifies talent from the NCAA swimming and running programs as a way to funnel athletes toward the Olympic pipeline. She finds future Olympic gold medalist Gwen Jorgensen.   2014: Triathlon is designated as an NCAA Emerging Sport for Women   2016: Jorgensen caps her pro triathlon career by grabbing gold at the Rio Olympic Games, the first- gold medal for an American triathlete   2016: U.S. elite paratriathletes Grace Norman and Allysa Seely each win gold at the Paralympic Games. Hailey Danz and Melissa Stockwell also won medals, combining to sweep the podium in the PT2 sport class along with Seely.   2021: Katie Zaferes wins Olympic bronze at the delayed Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and the U.S. is one of only four countries to qualify three women for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and one of only two countries to place all three athletes in the top-20 with Zaferes winning bronze, Summer Rappaport placing 14th and Taylor Knibb 16th.   2021: Seely won gold Paralympic again to become the only female two-time Paralympic triathlete gold medalist. Danz became a two-time PTS2 silver medalist and Norman earned a silver in the PTS5 category. Kendall Gretsch also won the first women's triathlon wheelchair race in Paralympic history and became the fifth American to win gold medals at both the summer and winter Paralympic Games.   2022: USA Triathlon adds two college programs to offer women's collegiate triathlon to reach the milestone of 40 schools. Women's triathlon is now on its way to becoming an NCAA Championship Sport.   Colorado driver accused of "intentionally" hitting two cyclists — critically injuring one — still at large Police investigating a hit-and-run that wounded two cyclists in Evergreen, Colorado, on Sunday morning. One of the cyclists, identified as a woman by local authorities, suffered critical injuries as a result of the crash.   A 2018 Ford Escape registered to 39-year-old Alan "Haley" Mill allegedly swerved onto the shoulder of an interstate highway about 30 miles west of Denver. Witnesses told police the driver deliberately hit both cyclists before fleeing and later abandoning the vehicle. Witnesses said they saw Mill attempting "to dislodge a badly damaged bicycle from beneath his vehicle" in the parking lot of a restaurant after the collision, CBS Denver reported. The SUV, which has a temporary license plate, was found abandoned the next day, police said.   "This person passed a cyclist and then drove off the road intentionally onto the shoulder and into two other cyclists and possibly accelerated while doing that," said Jenny Fulton, director of public affairs at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, according to CBS Denver.   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Runs in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the Week: I'm Back Motherfuc*ers || Race Simulation For Challenge Roth   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

"I have to trust that I have something I want to say, and just double down on that." Kate Fagan is one of today's most important voices in women's sports. She is the best-selling author of three books — and is best-known in the running community as the author of What Made Maddy Run, about University of Pennsylvania runner Madison Holleran. Kate spent seven years as a columnist and feature writer for ESPN, she was a regular panelist on ESPN's Around the Horn, and she was host of Outside the Lines. Today, she writes for Sports Illustrated, and is co-host of the Off the Looking Glass podcast. In this conversation, we talk about Kate's road to writing greatness, including why she never really wanted to be on TV, the compromises she made to herself along the way, and her time as a Division-1 basketball player struggling with her sexuality and identity while at the University of Colorado Boulder. She talks about the process of writing Split Image, and later writing What Made Maddy Run, and the emotions involved in both. Plus: all about Kate's recent TEDxBoston talk, her take on why we watch sports, and her wishes for the future of women's sports.

Physical aesthetics and athletic performance don't go hand in hand always."Today's guest is Jessica Isaacs, the Sports Dietitian for the Los Angeles Clippers and a Master Nutrition Coach for BodyBuilding.com.Everyone has questions about diet – from what to eat to lose weight, to build muscle, to think more clearly, to have more energy, to perform better and to sleep better. Our guest, Jessica Isaacs, not only shares much needed answers to some of these questions, she does it in a way that's fun and easy to understand. Jessica was inspired to become a sports dietitian after overcoming her own negative experiences with diet and exercise. She's determined to help others do the same. I like to think of her as a dietitian on a mission. It's amazing how easy it is to take our health for granted. Thankfully, people like Jessica exist in the world.

Joe Skipper joins Kristian Blummenfelt, Katrina Matthews and Nicola Spirig who will attempt to defy the impossible and break 7 hours and 8 hours for men and women respectively over the full distance. Joe's mentality is that no one, not even the dominant Norwegians and Kristian Blummenfelt is unbeatable.   Dual Olympic champion and Sub7 aspirant Alistair Brownlee has been ruled out of the Pho3nix Sub7Sub8 Project, powered by Zwift due to a stress response in his hip that requires immediate treatment. Brownlee will be replaced by fellow Brit and PTO world number six Joe Skipper who takes his shot at making history against reigning Olympic and World Champion Kristian Blummenfelt on Sunday at the DEKRA Lausitzring in Senftenberg, Germany.   It is a cruel blow for Brownlee, who along with MANA Group CEO and Pho3nix Foundation board member Chris McCormack was part of the initial team that developed the concept of delivering the first sub-7 hour full distance triathlon in late 2019.   “We are extremely disappointed with the announcement, but when you are pushing your body to the limit like Alistair has been, it's a fine line,” said McCormack. ‘Alistair is a true professional and will be there to support Joe, who has been preparing for Ironman Nice at the end of June, so in good shape to take on the challenge.''   ‘It's not going to get easier with Joe', said Blummenfelt. ‘He has a better full distance resume and a higher world ranking than Alistair. I'm looking forward to the challenge.'   “Honestly, I'm devastated, said Brownlee. ‘I was frustrated to miss St George, and now this. I'm gutted. I was so invested in the process and loved working with my team. This was the goal that stimulated me again in the sport, on par with the Olympics. I'll do what I can to support Joe.”   Brownlee, who also missed the recent Ironman World Championships in Utah, will support Skipper by pacing him in the swim, and will also join the commentary team for the live broadcast on Sub7Sub8.com. Brownlee replaces Richard Varga on Skipper's team, with Jonny Brownlee also dropping out to be replaced by German national marathon champion Frank Schauer. Skipper retains the support of the bike pacemaking team led by Alex Dowsett, who is fresh off riding in the Giro d'Italia.     Ironman Des Moines Course Swim This unique 2-loop swim course will take athletes counterclockwise in popular Grays Lake.

This 2-loop, spectator friendly swim course is a great way to kick off your race day.     Bike The rolling hills of this 1-loop bike course will take athletes through some of Iowa's best sights. Athletes will head west through beautiful West Des Moines before hitting the rolling hills of Dallas County and famous bridges of Madison County. In the heart of the course, athletes will ride through Winterset, the birthplace of John Wayne, before heading back north to Des Moines.

To improve our endurance, we want to be more efficient at an aerobic intensity. To improve our speed, we want to have a higher anaerobic capacity. Besides doing "field testing" like the Swim CSS, Bike FTP and Run TT, one scientific way to test is how well the body processes muscle lactate. If you've ever done a Lactate Threshold Test (LTT), here's how the test administrator interprets the lactate measurement to determine your training zones.   The LTT is performed by starting the athlete a warmup at a very easy intensity. We'll use the run discipline for this example. The athlete will walk on a treadmill for 10 minutes before starting the test and once the test starts, the intensity is increased every 2 minutes. At the beginning of the 10 minutes, the test administrator takes 4 metrics - pace, rate of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR) and lactate millimoles per liter of blood with a blood sample and lab kit. The lactate compared to the pace is the primary metric and the HR and RPE are secondary but useful to confirm and interpret the data. The administrator takes those same 4 metrics at the end of the 10 minutes and every 2 minutes there after. Every 2 minutes the treadmill pace is increased by 30 seconds of pace (11:00, 10:30, 10:00, 9:30 and so on).   There are two key inflection points the test administrator is looking for. When the intensity is increased and the lactate level remains the same as the previous level means that the subject athlete is predominantly aerobic (zones 1-2). When the lactate level increases and levels out after each increase the athlete is in between aerobic and anaerobic (zone 3). When the lactate level continues to rise without an increase to intensity, the athlete is above lactate threshold (zone 4-5).   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Garmin has released the Varia RCT715, a new version of its tail light that features a high-definition camera to record any incidents out on the road.   The Varia RCT715 features the same radar technology as its predecessors. When paired with a Garmin bike computer or smartwatch, the Varia will alert users to vehicles approaching from behind up to 140m away. Garmin says the device can be paired with selected cycling apps such as Ride with GPS. This will enable users to overlay maps with the radar notifications.   Garmin claims the Varia RCT715's tail light can be seen up to one mile away in daylight. The camera records continuously and will save footage if an incident is detected. Garmin says the Varia's camera will “capture sharp, clear footage” at up 1080 pixels and 30 frames per second.   The camera will record constantly when the Varia is in use. If an incident is detected, via Garmin's Incident Detection feature, the camera will automatically save footage from before, during and after the event. According to Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of global consumer sales, this is to provide users with evidence of an incident “should they ever need it”.   However, the camera also provides more recreational functions, in line with how you might use a GoPro. Via the Garmin Varia app, users can access the video footage, transfer files and customise the camera's settings, to do things such as overlay data, including speed and location.   Garmin says the use of the camera will be prohibited or regulated in some jurisdictions, adding that it is the responsibility of the user to know and comply with applicable laws and rights to privacy. While Garmin has added a camera to the Varia, it has retained the radar and tail light functionality of the device.   Like the previous Garmin Varia RTL515, the radar on the new version will still detect and alert users to vehicles approaching from behind to the same distance of 140m.   Similarly, the tail light on the new version is said to be visible up to one mile away in daylight, which is the same as the Varia RTL515. But while the RTL515 has a claimed battery life of up to 16 hours, the RCT715 has a shorter claimed battery life.   The Varia RCT715's battery life is said to be up to four hours with radar and the tail light on ‘solid high' or ‘night flash', and up to six hours with the light flashing. The reduction in battery life is presumably because the camera is recording continuously.   Why Running at Night Feels Harder An interesting new study by researchers at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology, working with the Swedish military and colleagues in Slovenia. They'd noticed that soldiers on night marches seemed to burn more energy than would be expected from the physical demands of the mission, especially when wearing night-vision goggles that restrict peripheral vision. They wondered whether not being able to see forced the soldiers to alter their strides, sacrificing efficiency for stability, so they decided to test this theory.   The new study, published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, had 15 volunteers do a series of ten-minute treadmill walks in four conditions: with and without a 56-pound pack, and with and without a blindfold on. The treadmill was set at a comfortable pace of around 30 minutes per mile, with a laser warning system to alert them if they were about to fall off the back of the treadmill.   The results showed that oxygen use (a proxy for energy consumption), breathing, and heart rate all increased substantially when wearing the heavy pack, as you'd expect. The surprise was that they increased by nearly the same amount when adding a blindfold. Here are the graphs of those three parameters, with (circles) or without (squares) the blindfold:   If you compare the circles on the left (i.e. blindfolded with no backpack) to the squares on the right (i.e. not blindfolded with a backpack), you see they're almost the same. In other words, walking with a blindfold takes as much extra effort as walking with a 56-pound pack. To be precise, the backpack increased oxygen consumption by 20 percent, while blindfolding increased oxygen consumption 19 percent.   The explanation for this effect seems to be that the subjects adjusted their strides when blindfolded: their steps got 11 percent shorter and 6 percent wider, and they also lifted their feet 18 percent higher. Bear in mind that this is on a perfectly flat treadmill, so there are no bumps or potholes to avoid: this is just an instinctive response. It's also worth noting that the effect probably isn't just because they're unfamiliar with the challenge of walking while blindfolded: a similar test of blind subjects found that they burned about 25 percent more energy while walking than sighted controls.   Of course, being blindfolded is significantly more disruptive than wearing night goggles, or simply being out at night in poorly lit conditions. That means the size of the effect is probably exaggerated. And walking is different from running. But it seems reasonable to assume that similar mechanisms are at work when you're running in the dark—along with other, more subtle mechanisms like optic flow, which is the pattern of objects flowing through your vision as you move through space.   When you're running or cycling in the dark, you can only see objects that are relatively close to you. That means that they appear in your field of vision only briefly before disappearing behind you, which corresponds to faster optic flow than you'd experience in daylight. A few previous studies, most notably those by Dave Parry and Dominic Micklewright of the University of Essex, have tried manipulating optic flow in virtual reality setups, making the scenery fly past more quickly or slowly than the speed of the treadmill or exercise bike. Sure enough, when optic flow is faster—as you'd experience in dark conditions—you feel like you're moving faster, and any given pace feels harder.   There's an interesting corollary to these findings about optic flow, as Parry explained to Runner's World's Scott Douglas back in 2012. “Running in an environment where most of the visual reference points you can see are close by, you experience a greater sensation of speed than when in an environment where your reference points are far away,” he said. That means running through a forest or through city streets will likely feel faster than running across an open field.   Ever since reading about those optical flow results, I've dismissed the gap between my actual and perceived pace during night runs as a quirk of how my brain estimates effort. During most of my runs, that gap doesn't matter—but if I'm trying to do a tempo run or hard workout before sunrise, the slower pace can be a bummer. So I'll take the new Swedish results as reassurance that night running might really be physiologically harder, not just a brain error—and if that's what it takes to avoid tripping in the dark, I'll accept the trade-off.   What's New in the 303:   Ragnar Snowmass RUN. CAMP. SLEEP? REPEAT.   Ragnar Trail Snowmass-CO presented by Salomon brings you the perfect fusion of trail running, high-country camping, and Rocky Mountain beauty. Teams of 8 (or 4) will find their inner wild on three separate mountain trails, or “loops" that start and finish at Ragnar Village. Glacial valleys, snowcapped peaks, and blooming wildflowers set the scene as you make your way along rolling single-track. Though you may blame the altitude, in the end it will be the stunning mountain views that take your breath away. Conquer each climb and you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the Maroon Bells -Snowmass Wilderness — not to mention a much needed downhill.   Without Limits Productions May 13 at 8:30 AM  · This season we usher in a new era of cyclocross, but an era built upon the champions and friends who have defined excellence over its past 23 seasons.  We're proud to announce, on the 1-year anniversary of her tragic passing, the new Gwen Erffmeyer Inglis Cup for the SHIMANO Cyclocross Series - Women OPEN Series Champion!   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Races in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the Week: Ragnar Trail Snowmass - CO       Upcoming Guests: World Champion Adventure Racer, Robin Benicasa with us today.

We're your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.   Format recently has been less interview focused.   Show Sponsor: UCAN Take your performance to the next level with UCAN Energy and Bars made with SuperStarch®  UCAN uses SuperStarch instead of simple sugars to fuel athletes.  UCAN keeps blood sugar steady compared to the energy spikes and crashes of sugar-based products.  Steady energy equals sustained performance!   Use UCAN in your training and racing to fuel the healthy way, finish stronger and recover more quickly!  Use the code 303UCAN for 20% off at ucan.co/discount/303UCAN/ or ucan.co     In Today's Show Feature Coaching Topic How Consistency Makes You Faster Endurance News New Garmin Varia RCT715 tail light has a camera to record your crashes What's new in the 303 Colorado Connections in Costa Rica Video of the Week Coast to Coast Costa Rica   Training Discussion: Consistency Is Key   Last week I spoke about how regular testing of your threshold intensities in each discipline will keep training zones current to make sure you are training at the correct intensities. In that discussion I used the example of training in your threshold training intensity zone. If you want to increase your threshold power you need to train at that Z4 Threshold zone to train your body to process muscle lactate efficiently. The more time you spend in that zone, the more adaptation you get. Without the FTP number or accurate substitute, you may be training in the wrong zone (eg Z3 or Z5), neither of which create the same adaptation of teaching your body to improve lactate processing and increasing your capacity to do work.   I also mentioned that training regularly and progressively overloading the correct training zones over the course of 3 weeks will set you up on the 4th week for your retest. If things are working, the next FTP test is at a higher average power than the one 4 weeks earlier. You then adjust the training zones. In this case increasing the power ranges for each zone. Another 3 weeks of training at the new (accurate) zones causes another adaptation, another test, another increase, another adjustment to training zones, etc.   This week I'd like to build on that concept and talk about the importance of consistency in training and how inconsistency can sabotage the process and will likely result in no improvement in the month over month testing.   Lets first discuss the concept of progressive overload and we'll use a simple example. Last week we used training at threshold as the example, but I want to be clear that the concept of progressive overload to achieve adaptation is not limited to the threshold training zone. If we break it down to a fundamental level, there are just a few adaptations that we are trying to affect in our training. We want to adapt our body to have greater endurance (go longer) and we want adapt our speed (go faster). The faster we go for longer, the better our race performances will be.   To improve our endurance, we want to be more efficient at an aerobic intensity. To improve our speed, we want to have a higher anaerobic capacity. Besides doing "field testing" like the Swim CSS, Bike FTP and Run TT, one scientific way to test is how well the body processes muscle lactate. If you've ever done a Lactate Threshold Test (LTT), here's how the test administrator interprets the lactate measurement to determine your training zones.   The LTT is performed by starting the athlete a warmup at a very easy intensity. We'll use the run discipline for this example. The athlete will walk on a treadmill for 10 minutes before starting the test and once the test starts, the intensity is increased every 2 minutes. At the beginning of the 10 minutes, the test administrator takes 4 metrics - pace, rate of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR) and lactate millimoles per liter of blood with a blood sample and lab kit. The lactate compared to the pace is the primary metric and the HR and RPE are secondary but useful to confirm and interpret the data. The administrator takes those same 4 metrics at the end of the 10 minutes and every 2 minutes there after. Every 2 minutes the treadmill pace is increased by 30 seconds of pace (11:00, 10:30, 10:00, 9:30 and so on).   There are two key inflection points the test administrator is looking for. When the intensity is increased and the lactate level remains the same as the previous level means that the subject athlete is predominantly aerobic (zones 1-2). When the lactate level increases and levels out after each increase the athlete is in between aerobic and anaerobic (zone 3). When the lactate level continues to rise without an increase to intensity, the athlete is above lactate threshold (zone 4-5).   Let's set aside other adaptations like muscle and tendon strength and flexibility as well as other adaptations to prevent injury. To achieve greater aerobic efficiency and aerobic capacity requires consistent and  progressive overload dosing of aerobic and anaerobic training. Think of dosing as the number of minutes in each zone that we are trying to affect. The following example is conceptual, but can be extrapolated to fit a training plan for different distance events or performance goals.   Assume that your baseline of training is 200 minutes in aerobic training the week before your last threshold test. To progressive overload dosing, you would increase the load of training over the next 3 weeks as 210, 220 and 230 minutes. It's the same with anaerobic adaptions. Assume you had 20 minutes of anaerobic training in the week before your last test. To progressively overload the dosing of anaerobic training, you may increase that as 43, 46 and 49 over then next three weeks.   A well designed training plan will have this progressive overload concept built into the cumulative training for each week over the course of the weeks between tests. Each training session will have a goal number of minutes for specific training zones which collectively make up the dosing for the week. Using the previous example of threshold dosing, let's assume there were two run training sessions in week 1 that cumulatively added up to 23 minutes of threshold dosing and you nailed the total of 43 minutes. In week 2 your goal was to achieve 46 minutes and assume there were again 2 sessions that totaled 46 minutes of threshold. The first session prescribed 20 minutes, which you nailed.   Lets assume you cut the second session and instead of 23 minutes of threshold you only get in 10 minutes, resulting in 30 total minutes for the 2nd week. Even if you nail the 3rd week of 49 minutes, you have interrupted the progressive overload process. Just looking at the run threshold stress load for each week, the minutes of threshold dosing in minutes would be 43 for week 1, 30 for week 2, and 49 for week 3; 43, 20 and 49. The training stress is inconsistent and the body's reaction to the stress will likely stagnate resulting in plateauing performance.   Cutting workouts short or missing the  altogether across a single or all disciplines can sabotage your adaptations, training progress and race performance. There is another problem as well. When you miss or cut training stress short, your body is less prepared for subsequent training. When you try to do that next harder week of training, you can potentially present more stress than the body is prepared for, which can lead to risk of injury. Athletes will try to make up for missed workouts by adding the missed training. Using the previous example, imagine if you tried to add the missed 16 minutes to the 3rd week and did 46, 20 and 65 (49+16), the risk of injury becomes even greater.    Training software helps athletes by converting training dosing into training stress scores across each discipline to help you track your progress and consistency. Some even weight higher intensities with a higher stress coefficient. This will give you visibility to the inconsistency but its after the fact. One of the things I like about TriDot is that it makes the goal dosing in minutes for each training zone visible before the workout. Most workouts will have a warmup, main set and cooldown, each with goal minutes by zone. The workouts can be pushed to your Garmin or other device and alert you if you are out of the prescribed intensity zone, helping you achieve the goal training stress. TriDot gives the athlete a training execution score called TrainX. If the athlete follows the prescribed training and consistently get high TrainX scores, they get faster results with fewer injuries.   If you want to talk further about how to train consistently to get better results, reach out at Rich@303colorado.com or message me @tripodcasterrich.   Check out the TriDot Free Trial https://app.tridot.com/onboard/sign-up/richsoares   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Garmin has released the Varia RCT715, a new version of its tail light that features a high-definition camera to record any incidents out on the road.   The Varia RCT715 features the same radar technology as its predecessors. When paired with a Garmin bike computer or smartwatch, the Varia will alert users to vehicles approaching from behind up to 140m away. Garmin says the device can be paired with selected cycling apps such as Ride with GPS. This will enable users to overlay maps with the radar notifications.   Garmin claims the Varia RCT715's tail light can be seen up to one mile away in daylight. The camera records continuously and will save footage if an incident is detected. Garmin says the Varia's camera will “capture sharp, clear footage” at up 1080 pixels and 30 frames per second.   The camera will record constantly when the Varia is in use. If an incident is detected, via Garmin's Incident Detection feature, the camera will automatically save footage from before, during and after the event. According to Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of global consumer sales, this is to provide users with evidence of an incident “should they ever need it”.   However, the camera also provides more recreational functions, in line with how you might use a GoPro. Via the Garmin Varia app, users can access the video footage, transfer files and customise the camera's settings, to do things such as overlay data, including speed and location.   Garmin says the use of the camera will be prohibited or regulated in some jurisdictions, adding that it is the responsibility of the user to know and comply with applicable laws and rights to privacy. While Garmin has added a camera to the Varia, it has retained the radar and tail light functionality of the device.   Like the previous Garmin Varia RTL515, the radar on the new version will still detect and alert users to vehicles approaching from behind to the same distance of 140m.   Similarly, the tail light on the new version is said to be visible up to one mile away in daylight, which is the same as the Varia RTL515. But while the RTL515 has a claimed battery life of up to 16 hours, the RCT715 has a shorter claimed battery life.   The Varia RCT715's battery life is said to be up to four hours with radar and the tail light on ‘solid high' or ‘night flash', and up to six hours with the light flashing. The reduction in battery life is presumably because the camera is recording continuously.   Why Running at Night Feels Harder An interesting new study by researchers at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology, working with the Swedish military and colleagues in Slovenia. They'd noticed that soldiers on night marches seemed to burn more energy than would be expected from the physical demands of the mission, especially when wearing night-vision goggles that restrict peripheral vision. They wondered whether not being able to see forced the soldiers to alter their strides, sacrificing efficiency for stability, so they decided to test this theory.   The new study, published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, had 15 volunteers do a series of ten-minute treadmill walks in four conditions: with and without a 56-pound pack, and with and without a blindfold on. The treadmill was set at a comfortable pace of around 30 minutes per mile, with a laser warning system to alert them if they were about to fall off the back of the treadmill.   The results showed that oxygen use (a proxy for energy consumption), breathing, and heart rate all increased substantially when wearing the heavy pack, as you'd expect. The surprise was that they increased by nearly the same amount when adding a blindfold. Here are the graphs of those three parameters, with (circles) or without (squares) the blindfold:   If you compare the circles on the left (i.e. blindfolded with no backpack) to the squares on the right (i.e. not blindfolded with a backpack), you see they're almost the same. In other words, walking with a blindfold takes as much extra effort as walking with a 56-pound pack. To be precise, the backpack increased oxygen consumption by 20 percent, while blindfolding increased oxygen consumption 19 percent.   The explanation for this effect seems to be that the subjects adjusted their strides when blindfolded: their steps got 11 percent shorter and 6 percent wider, and they also lifted their feet 18 percent higher. Bear in mind that this is on a perfectly flat treadmill, so there are no bumps or potholes to avoid: this is just an instinctive response. It's also worth noting that the effect probably isn't just because they're unfamiliar with the challenge of walking while blindfolded: a similar test of blind subjects found that they burned about 25 percent more energy while walking than sighted controls.   Of course, being blindfolded is significantly more disruptive than wearing night goggles, or simply being out at night in poorly lit conditions. That means the size of the effect is probably exaggerated. And walking is different from running. But it seems reasonable to assume that similar mechanisms are at work when you're running in the dark—along with other, more subtle mechanisms like optic flow, which is the pattern of objects flowing through your vision as you move through space.   When you're running or cycling in the dark, you can only see objects that are relatively close to you. That means that they appear in your field of vision only briefly before disappearing behind you, which corresponds to faster optic flow than you'd experience in daylight. A few previous studies, most notably those by Dave Parry and Dominic Micklewright of the University of Essex, have tried manipulating optic flow in virtual reality setups, making the scenery fly past more quickly or slowly than the speed of the treadmill or exercise bike. Sure enough, when optic flow is faster—as you'd experience in dark conditions—you feel like you're moving faster, and any given pace feels harder.   There's an interesting corollary to these findings about optic flow, as Parry explained to Runner's World's Scott Douglas back in 2012. “Running in an environment where most of the visual reference points you can see are close by, you experience a greater sensation of speed than when in an environment where your reference points are far away,” he said. That means running through a forest or through city streets will likely feel faster than running across an open field.   Ever since reading about those optical flow results, I've dismissed the gap between my actual and perceived pace during night runs as a quirk of how my brain estimates effort. During most of my runs, that gap doesn't matter—but if I'm trying to do a tempo run or hard workout before sunrise, the slower pace can be a bummer. So I'll take the new Swedish results as reassurance that night running might really be physiologically harder, not just a brain error—and if that's what it takes to avoid tripping in the dark, I'll accept the trade-off.   What's New in the 303: Costa Rica Leatherback Turtle Conservation Butterfly farm and the Butterfly Pavilion in Broomfield, bats, bugs, In room spiders, centipedes, roaches, beetles, crabs, bats Monkeys (spider, white faced and howler) Cuati and racoon   Bill's updates   Video of the Week: Costa Rica Coast to Coast, Highlights 2022       Closing: Good luck to those racing Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga and Ironman Tulsa this weekend!

In February of 2021, Heather Pech tore a portion of her plantar fascia and it took until September 2021 before she could run again. It was a physically and emotionally exhausting journey. It was 1.5 years since her last race and 3 years since she toed the line at Boston. "I started to run 3 or 4 weeks before and just had so much gratitude. Pure, unalloyed delight that I could run. I wanted to Forest Gump. I wanted to run all day. Everywhere. Fast. I ran 3 or 4 workouts leading into Boston that were the fastest of my life. I had been deprived of running and was rediscovering the possibility. I stepped into the Boston corral with confidence I was whole, calmness that I didn't have anything to prove, overwhelming gratitude, and hope from a conversation with coach James McKirdy. And that's kind of powerful stuff!" Heather ran 3:03:47 this year at age 60, setting the Age Group course record, breaking the GOAT Joan Benoit Samuelson's previous mark.
