jon cryer returns to triathalon after crash last year

Who knew Jon Cryer was such a badass???

Last year, the Two and a Half Men star participated in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, and things ended on an ugly note after he fell off his bike and was covered in scrapes, bruises, and road burns!

Ouch!!!

But instead of giving up on triathlons altogether like we probably would have done, he decided to get back on the bike. Literally!

Jon returned to the race this past weekend and we're happy to say he finished injury free!

After the race, he said:

Lance Armstrong Talks Triathlon While Promoting LIVESTRONG Fitness Equipment

Filed under: Lance ArmstrongFitnessCancerCycling

Lance Armstrong may be living stronger than ever before!

The 7-time Tour de France winner was in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday to promote his LIVESTRONG Fitness Equipment and shared he was in the middle of training for his third triathlon since retiring.

Armstrong finished 5th in his first triathlon in 22 years after hopping off professional cycling circuit, then 23rd at the World XTERRA Championships in Maui. Talking about his most recent quest, he told sources:

“I don’t know if I would say I’m preparing for another career, but I’m definitely preparing for a triathlon.”

While in town, the athlete — who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996 — talked to other sources about how fighting and beating the disease has changed him, explaining:

"It certainly changed me as a person, it changed me as a parent, as a friend. You don't take anything for granted, especially those first couple of years. Every sunset becomes the best sunset you've ever seen, every traffic jam is absolutely nothing."

On the flip side, he admits that those feelings don't necessarily last forever, continuing:

"But as you get 10, 15 years down the road, I have to admit… that impatience comes back… you start to lose that crystal clear perspective you used to have in those first years after, when you have no idea what's going to happen and you're just waiting to know, ‘Am I going to be given life back?'"

Completely understandable! It's nice to get such a unique and honest perspective on the subject matter though.

Are Panic Attacks To Blame For Triathlon Deaths?

Filed under: FitnessRunningSwimming

Triathlon Panic Attacks

There's been this mystery looming over triathlons and deaths that seemingly come out of nowhere during them. There might be an answer now, though, and the culprit might be panic attacks!

In a triathlon, it starts in the water, goes to biking, and ends with running. Most of the quitters happen in the water, and most of them because of panic attacks. When you look closely though, the number of deaths between 2006 and 2008, there were 14.

13 of them happened in the water.

The official causes of death were drowning, but what caused the drowning?

It's believed to be panic attacks.

Here is the hypothesis:

In the swim event, a combination of stresses can lead to a panic attack (or something like it): the excitement of the moment, the chaos of swimming into and over other people, the chest constriction of the wet suit, the darkness and coldness of the water, competitiveness and the desire not to quit when friends and family are watching. On rare occasions this leads to drowning.

The thing is, most experienced competitors know of how often the panic attacks happen and witness them every single time they start a race. They also experience them themselves. But nobody is officially looking into it.

Which is a mistake.

Lives could be saved if they had some kind of structure to relieve the stresses at the beginning — maybe a staggered start and rely solely on time instead of "who crosses first" at the end. Who knows?

Point is that any death is too many.
