Okay, so the weather changed abruptly. A "real feel" of +2 degrees Fahrenheit changed all our training plans this weekend. We had more time than usual to read about the sport we love. This week had more than its share of interesting stories. Here are a few themes that caught our eye:
The triathlon industry continues to evolve and mature both here in the U.S. and around the world. Trijuice.com reported on the the formation of an industry association in the U.K. Runner Triathlete News covered the announcement of a new CEO, Rob Urbach, who will run the USA Triathlon governing body.
Cold weather is great time to focus on swimming fundamentals. Trifuel ran a great piece on how to develop solid basics in the water. TriDigest talked about the importance of drills in the pool during the winter.
Chrissie Wellington continues to set the bar higher for top athletes as ambassadors of the sport. Ironman.com announced a new audio training series that she has launched that will, in part, benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF).
