WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: TSS Part 2 – Overload and how to use training stress to plan your season. ONE STEP AHEAD: Tomatorade. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW – ELLIE SALTHOUSE: Australian triathlete Ellie Salthouse is one of the up and coming stars of the 70.3 distance. Living in Boulder, and coached by Siri Lindley, Ellie started her career as an ITU athlete qualifying for the inaugural youth Olympics in 2010 and racing to silver in the individual race and silver in the team event. In 2014/15 she raced ITU under the guidance of Siri but at the end of the year after contemplating leaving the sport was persuaded by Siri to give the 70.3 distance a go. The rest is history. In 2016 Ellie achieved a string of podium results including a win at Challenge Melbourne and has more recently raced to second at Dubai, second at Oceanside and third at St. George, North American Champs. Ellie plans to race the Challenge Championship in Slovakia next month, then Alcatraz and the 70.3 Worlds in Chattanooga.
