Triathletes love their stats. Whether it’s logging volume, time spent in target heart rates, or how much wattage they are putting out, we love to see how today’s performance stacks up against yesterday’s workout. There are plenty of benefits to taking a deep dive into the stats of your training sessions, not the least of which it gives you a clear representation of whether or not you are making progress.

Triathletes use a lot of different types of equipment while training. Both on race day and in competition they use a lot of gear, from swim goggles to different kinds of running and cycling shoes. As a result, they need something to be able to carry all over their gear.Picking out the right bag for triathlon isn’t too complicated. You want something that is large in volume, comfortable, and waterproof. Things like a padded sleeve for a tablet or laptop, mesh side bags for water bottles and shakers, and separate compartments for wet and dry gear are also big bonuses.

The first time I “rode” up Canary Hill nearly 10 years ago, I walked huffing and puffing the whole way. Canary Hill is a short, but challenging hill in Hurley, NY. The climb is just over 1/3 of a mile, but it packs a wallop. It starts at 13%, a third of the way up the slope increases to 34%, at two thirds you get some respite at 27%, and then it finally levels out at the end.

The Bio Mechanic
For the past 9 months, practically everyone who knows even the tiniest bit about me has been asking what I'm training for these days (because even the most casual acquaintance knows I'm a training/racing freak). Until last week the answer has been: nothing. To most triathletes, this means I've had nothing to live for! It is a weird answer for me to give considering that for the past 10 years I have trained for and completed in multiple races per year. So how did I decide that NOT racing was a good idea?
