2013 ECo Season Summary

2013 was a very exciting year full of personal records, outstanding performance and gutsy efforts.  I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who is part of the ECo community.  This includes not only the athletes but the support group, which includes coaches, therapists, doctors, scientists, and sponsors. I continue to be impressed and inspired by the work ethic, the commitment, and the performances. 

A special thank you to Valdora Cycles, Aquaman Wetsuits, Crank Sports (eGels), SRAM, Louis Garneau, and Brooks Running for supporting Endurance Company. 

ECo athletes are part of a group of incredible athletes who have chosen to train wisely, work hard, and redefine their limits.  Endurance Company works with a small group of athletes in order to provide unparalleled individualized attention. The results speak for themselves.  

For those of you who are part of Team ECo, you know where you fit in the lists below.   Thanks and great job!

Andrew Kirk's Ironman Arizona (and 2013 season) Report

I have been thinking about this write-up for the better part of three years –yes, really….  I had hoped to write about a glorious achievement of qualifying for Kona; a dream that I had considered when I first turned my attention onto triathlons in the winter of 2009.  But as time went on, I realized just how difficult it is to qualify.

ECo System

Training plans are a small part of what Endurance Company does. In fact, we know that you can get a generic training plan from a magazine, a website, or even a friend. But what sets up apart from most coaching programs is our extensive network of professionals.  When you are part of Team ECo, you have access to professionals in industry, in the health field, and in academia.  No matter what your question or issue, we can find an expert who can give you excellent insight and guidance.

Carrie Kimber's Ironman Arizona Race Report

I have to be honest, in my head, I have composed this race report a thousand times.  But when it comes to typing it out, it is very overwhelming. I returned from Arizona Monday night smiling, delighted, and overjoyed with my experience only to face another surgery in 4 days.  The final step of my multi-year ordeal was scheduled!

Count Your Steps

So my focus this week was stride frequency.  Stride frequency is just one factor in the speed equation (speed = stride length x stride frequency).  When I began distance running, I read that the elite distance runners had a cadence of 90-95 footstrikes/minute.  As I started doing longer runs, I worked to maintain a 90 cadence, so now a 90 cadence is pretty much a given.  Now, 90 isn't the "right" cadence, but it is a decent target cadence for most runners. I’m trying to bump that number up a little bit (explanation below), so this week I worked on quick turnover.
