This part of the website deals with triathlon, a race sport consisting of (usually) swimming, cycling and running. This page does not give an introduction to the whole sport in detail, as that has obviously been done in many other web pages. Rather, this is a place for a couple of techy bits and bobs I have written relating to triathlon. Presently, these include:
A couple of small spreadsheets written for Microsoft Excel. One sheet calculates the five training zones for each discipline given the athlete's minimum heart rate and maximum heart rate for each discipline. The other estimates the energy requirements of an athlete given race distances, speeds and so on. I have recently added a training log, the Trilog written by Rob Blomquist. This page also includes a couple of cycling-oriented spreadsheets as well: a gear calculator and a spoke length calculator.
My take on weight training for triathletes/cyclists/runners.
A description of my new timetrial bike.
An account of my first Ironman race, the Great Floridian Triathlon in 1998.
