The Tri Town Times: 8/9/21

USAT Nats; Sam Long + Emma Pallant Brown win Boulder 70.3; excellent strength/core routine from Dr. Dan Plews; Olympic wrap up.

Hi all,
Here is your weekly TT Times newsletter:
Weekend race report:

- Over 6,000 athletes competed in the USA Triathlon Nationals in downtown Milwaukee this weekend. National champions were crowed in olympic and sprint distance categories.

- Sam Long continues his strong 2021 season by winning Boulder 70.3. Emma Pallant-Browne won the women's race, with mixed team relay silver medalist Taylor Knibb taking second in her first half ironman distance race. Additional highlights include local professional Jocelyn McCauley taking 9th overall in her first 70.3 race since having her second child, and Rachael Tatko won the 25-29 age group race.

Training Thoughts:
An excellent guide to core/strength exercises for triathletes by Dr. Dan Plews.
Quote that struck a chord:
"Ninety percent of success can be boiled down to consistently doing the obvious thing for an uncommonly long period of time without convincing yourself that you're smarter than you are." Shane Parrish
In short: work hard, stay humble.
If you have a moment to spare:

Another Ironman record has fallen! :-)


Some Olympic wrap-up notes:

- Beautiful images from the Olympic closing ceremonies.

- Olympic acts of kindness.

- Jennifer Valente wins omnium gold despite crashing during the race.

- Can you believe the 2022 Winter Olympics are just 6 months away? Beijing will be the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

Have a great week!
