Starfsárið 2015-2016

Árlegur kynningarfundur Ægis3 var haldinn sl. fimmtudagskvöld.
Farið var yfir helstu áherslur félagsins næsta árið, ný æfingatafla kynnt sem og þjálfarar félagsins.
Skipulag æfinga verður að mestu svipað og undanfarin ár, en með smávægilegum breytingum þó:
Sund: Morgunsundæfingar verða á mánudögum og þriðjudögum, kl.6:00 – 7:15, en kvöldæfingin á fimmtudögum er áfram inni, þannig að sundæfingar verða 3 í hverri viku (og einstaka laugardaga verður 4. sundæfingin sett inn með góðum fyrirvara).
Hjólreiðaæfingar: Við ætlum að vera með kjarnaæfingarnar okkar á trainerum í Crossfit RVK í Faxafeninu á fimmtudagsmorgnum kl.6:00 og laugardagsmorgnum kl.8:00.
(aðgangur á traineræfingar í CFR er innifalinn í æfingagjöldunum)
Við munum líka vera með útihjólaæfingar (fjallahjól eða crosshjól) á sunnudagsmorgnum eftir því sem veður leyfir.
Spinningæfingar verða því ekki lengur kjarnaæfingar í okkar töflu, en Ari verður með spinning í WorldClass 2-3svar í viku (sjá í kynningunni) sem við getum nýtt okkur eins og áður.
Hlaupaæfingar: Laugardagar verða brick-dagar, þannig að við hlaupum í framhaldi af traineræfingunni.
Að auki verða sendar út á blaði tillögur að hlaupaæfingum sem hægt er að taka þegar hentar, eða stilla sig saman á facebook, eða t.d. með Laugaskokki eða öðrum hlaupahópum.
Við vonumst ennþá til að komast eitthvað inn á hlaupabrautina í Laugardalshöllinni, en það er ekki komið á hreint.

Æfingagjöld fyrir æfingatímabilið 2015 – 2016 eru 44.000 kr.
Hægt er að dreifa æfingagjöldunum á 2 eða 4 jafnar greiðslum.
(40.000 kr ef greitt er í einni greiðslu.)
Æfingagjöld fyrir eina grein (sund eða hjól) eru 30.000 kr.
Æfingatímabil félagsins er 1.okt 2015 – 30.sept 2016.

Skráning fyrir starfsárið er komin af stað og við vonumst auðvitað til að sjá sem flest ykkar æfa með okkur í vetur og á næsta ári.  Skráning er hér!
(á skráningarforminu má sjá nánari upplýsingar um æfingagjöldin og greiðslufyrirkomulag)
Við biðjum ykkur að fylla út skráningarformið, jafnvel þó þið séuð búin að vera með okkur undanfarið starfsár, til að við séum með réttan póstlista, FB-grúppu o.s.frv.

Race report from Siggi – World Triathlon Stockholm 2015

I really don’t know where to begin. This has been an amazing weekend of pure stress, fun, excitement and a feeling of success.

I remember it took a few weeks for Sarah to convince me to go. Ben was pushing as well, because he had already decided to do the Olympic distance. I, as always, was a little bit stubborn, arguing that this would cost too much and I had to work to make money for the winter. But, as it turns out, I eventually decided to go and signed up for the sprint race.

This was a tough decision, sprint or Olympic distance, for I really wanted to do the Olympic but wasn’t quite sure if the weather would suit me for such a long race. Too warm and I would melt down like butter spread on a warm frying pan. I therefore chose the “safe” option, namely, the shorter one.

The last few days before the race I started feeling a little bit more stressed and caught myself thinking about it quite a lot during each day. This, I think, started infecting my session a little bit, to the point that Sarah asked me one day if everything was OK on my behalf. I think it was after the mini race we had at Nautholsvik, after the Marbendill race was cancelled. I had been a little distracted mentally and maybe not in as jolly mood as I had previously been.

I realised that I must quit thinking about the race all the time and start focusing on these last few days of preparation. Even though this was my first race outside of Iceland, I must not let it get to me mentally.

The day after was much better, and I did a light swim session before starting to pack my things, as it was Thursday and we were leaving Friday morning.

I woke up at 3:30 AM Friday morning to make me some breakfast. I always have a large bowl of boiled oats along with raisins and prunes and this day was no exception. I also had a banana before leaving house to team up with Ben along our way to the airport. We arrived two hours before the flight and therefore had plenty of time to make our way to the gate. I remember us chatting about what we were aiming for during the weekend and I joked about it being awesome to make the top 20 on the list. Soon enough our call came and we were off to Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

It was hard travelling with our bags, a big cycle suitcase along with a heavy accessories bag really makes you have to work for it. We eventually made it to a train and were quickly outside the Central Station in Stockholm.

Sarah and Thrainn were staying at a hotel close by but me and Ben had ordered an apartment through Airbnb and therefore had to make our way to that location. It was only six blocks away and we thought it was too expensive to take a taxi so we decided to wait for Sarah and Thrainn to settle and then we would all walk to our apartment.

This short six blocks walk shortly turned into a steaming half an hour walk in the heat, travelling with a heavy suitcase. It wasn’t bad, but it taught us that if we are not staying beside the airport or a train station, we should just order a taxi.

Eventually we made it to the apartment and settled in. After that we all went downtown to find the registration center and got our racing numbers, the chip for our foot and other info about the weekend.

Next thing was to unpack the bike and then we were all set for Saturday.

I and Ben decided to take an easy ride Saturday morning. After all, we needed to make sure everything was working just fine after the unpacking Friday afternoon. We left house at 9 o’clock and headed out to the direction we would be cycling during the competition.

About 15 minutes into the ride, I felt a strange feeling on my bike, like the bike was not as responsive as it should be. I remember thinking: “This feels exactly like I have a flat tyre…”, and indeed it was. I had only brought two rims with me to Stockholm since there was no room for anything other in the suitcase. This should not have been a problem, having a flat, but it was. The thing is, these tyres were not normal tyres with tubes, and they were tubulars. Which means they are glued to the rim. That also means that if I have a flat, I am basically screwed, especially if it were to happen during a race.

Ben suggested we made our way downtown for the bike repair shop since they could possibly be able to help us out. So without further ado, I climbed off my bike, took off my shoes and walked on my socks on the streets of Stockholm these 2-3 km that were to the bike shop.

The guys at the repair station were extremely helpful and got me a new rim, not an aero one, but this would have to do for tomorrow. This rim was for 11 speed gears, though, and since I only had 10 gears on mine, the gears could move a little bit back and forth, making it more difficult to shift. But I was just happy that I had a new rim and a new tyre so that I could race on Sunday. That was the only thing that mattered.

Finally I was back to our apartment after a very unexpectedly busy day and just wanted to go to sleep. We hit our beds early, since Ben was starting at 8:30 AM and we wanted to set up our transitions zones early in the morning, before everything got crowded.

5:30 AM – a wake-up call on race day!

This is it. Race day had come and we were all set to take on this challenge. We had gone over our transitions many times on Saturday, practiced it in our minds and felt confident ahead of the race. We both went down to the competition site and set up our transitions and then I watched as Ben started his swim leg. I wasn’t starting until 10:50 AM so I had plenty of time to warm up and get ready.

Time passed fast and soon enough it was only 30 minutes until my start. I decided it was time to put on my wetsuit and head out to the check-in.

Announcement was made that the water was now 19 degree C, a much nicer temperature than in Iceland and I felt really happy about it. It’s that kind of not too cold but not overly warm.

I was starting in the first group of the sprint team, but we were distributed into starting groups, around 50-100 participants at a time.

The water was very wavy and it was hard to position myself before the start.

Then it started. This pounding drum beat, which is played before every ITU start, most notable when the elites compete. But it was there, affecting me so much I am sure my heart started beating at the same tempo. Then the bang came…GO!

I sprinted away, feeling a few arms trying to hold on to my legs but they were soon left behind. It was only me and this other Swedish guy now. He really sprinted away, like he wanted to get rid of the whole field right away. I always kept him close, not losing sight of the yellow buoys either. The rhythm was fine, I was feeling just awesome when we turned around to head back towards shore. I could see that I was slightly gaining on my Swedish friend in front of me, who I figured was getting tired after all the show off in the beginning. I started to slightly increase my stroke tempo, and switched sides on my breathing. This was to rest my stronger left side for the final meters. I quickly gained on him and soon we were side by side. Then it happened, when I looked left to breathe, with about 200 meters left, our eyes met, or so I think. At least I was looking straight into his goggles and I felt he was looking straight at mine. He must have realised I was in the same group as him because he suddenly started to sprint again. I laughed in my mind and started making my way straight behind his feet. If he wanted to do the hard work, I wasn’t going to stop him. So, for about 100 meters I drafted him before pulling up beside him and finishing strong for the last few meters. We came up out of the water at the same time and made it to the transition zone. Swimming time was 10 minutes and 15 seconds according to my watch and I felt pretty good about that, since it was very wavy and hard to coordinate properly.

I had a much faster transition than my fellow swimming competitor and was soon off to my bike ride. The gears felt fine, even though they shook a little every time I hit a bump or an uneven road. I didn’t think much about it anyway, just thought about going fast and strong.

There were many people on the track at the same time which made it a little bit difficult to maintain my speed all the time but I think I managed to be quite efficient.

I was so busy to overtake people that I nearly missed my first turning point, having to break aggressively to make it. The turning for the sprint race was by the end of a long straight so the ones going Olympic distance kept on going, making it a bit confusing.

I shook it off and finished my bike leg in a decent time, 30 minutes and 53 seconds.

The second transition was good as well, though I could really feel now that it was getting quite warm outside. The temperatures were going up to 24-27 degrees at this time and not a single cloud could be seen in the sky.
This made the run increasingly difficult for me, since I am not used to be racing in more than 15 degrees, as is usual in the summertime here in Iceland.

Like always, the first 1-2 km were a bit difficult, as I was finding my pace and getting used to my body shifting the focus from my hips to the calves. I remember, though, that there were people all along the running track, cheering you on and shouting encouraging words, which really made thing much easier. I made my way through the first 2.5 km from the transition zone and to the Royal Palace.

Now it was just one lap left of 2.5 km and then I was done. I had not looked at the time since I came up from the water but decided not to do it and just smash myself for the last few minutes. The heat was pretty much unbearable for me but I kept on going and could not for the life of me have counted how many people from the Olympic race, still racing on the track, I overtook. When I was coming towards the finish, I saw Ben, who had made his way to the finishing line to cheer me on after his race. I sprinted for the last few meters, up the steep hill by the blue carpet and finished in the time of 1:05:11.

Siggi_run

A pretty decent time, considering 5-6 minutes in transition and a pretty technical cycling track. I had ran the 5 km in just around 18 minutes. I was hoping for a 17:30 time, but given these circumstances of extreme heat, lots of people in the way and a technical track, I was happy about it. I made my way to the drink station located in the street behind the finish line and took two cups of water and met up with Ben for a walk back to fetch our cycles and check out of the competition zone. This had been a good day and we were going to cheer Sarah for her race and then relax and watch the elite men in the afternoon sun.

We found out later that day that we had been placed 1st and 2nd in our respective races along with Sarah being 4th in her race. We were so happy and this just made the weekend so much better. I remember Ben jumping up, high-five-ing me and shouting, while I just sat there in more of a shock than anything else. I didn’t believe it at first. This was so unreal. Of all the guys there, looking in so good shape, some of them even professional-like looking, I had set the fastest time.

I can’t help but think a few months back now, before all this started. I could not even have dreamed of the improvements that we have made as a team for the past few months. Literally everyone has got better on some level, and most of us have had dramatic improvements in all three disciplines; swim, bike and run. I think these are exciting times for triathlon in Iceland, for all distances. It’s great to have a chance to be a part of this and it’s an honour to be training with all these amazing people.

I can’t wait for the next season to start but first let’s finish this one strong with a hell of a fun Njardvik race!

For those who have any international races left this season, just remember to smash it and have FUN!
