Jeren Seegers – 2nd overall and 1st 30-34 age group

Go Down Swinging It has become quite apparent that I enjoy racing in winter and the Durban 70.3. Three Durban 70.3’s, three age group wins and three, second place finishes. The season has been a rough one but with huge learning curves. The buildup to Durban was far from fabulous, more missed sessions than ever before, numbers so low that I would win every limbo party and running was more of a chore that hurt than something of a...

A superb come back race for James Welsh – Dbn 70.3

Durban 70.3 Durban in many respects is a world class 70.3 triathlon venue.

There are two options for the sea swim, either swim from the race...

Kelly van der Toorn – Winner 40-44 AG and 3rd placed lady overall

Nobody, nobody has a perfect race build-up, especially not a veteran mom-of-three whose husband was working away in Europe during exam period at school. I had made one significant change to my training a few weeks back – communicating after each Tissink Training Peaks session.  I noticed little adjustments in the week ahead, and was just responding so well to the mix of sessions that I almost didn’t want to start a taper.  I was...

Helder Silva – Dbn 70.3 Race Report

IM 70,3 Durban2017…Race Report…Using the race weekend as a getaway for a few days…Last few weeks, some discomfort on lower back and sciatic nerve, was a warning… let my coach know about it, and he showed me a few exercises, and doing it, the pains eased down. I also didn’t realize how emotional matters, can compromise your fitness. And no matter how many triathlons I did, as this was the 3rd in Durban,...
