Welcome, Nicole Drummer!

Stay Active, My Friends!

Hi Pikes Peak Sports fans! Great to meet you here and I hope to see you often on the roads and trails! 

I love being outside and active. I've personally competed in everything from a 5k run to an Ironman triathlon. I've dabbled in mountain bike racing and hope to race my road bike a bit more these next few years, and give the sport of cyclocross a try as well. 

My passion (and my job!) is to help others do the same.

Learn more about my coaching here: NEO Endurance Sports & Fitness.

During the warmer months (April-September) I lead a Friday evening no-drop ride from Cafe Velo. I also coach a group swim Monday evenings at the Gleneagle Golf Club pool.

I hope to swim, bike, and/or run with you soon!

Bike Racing (Volunteering) Weekend

The first weekend in May has become the weekend for the Tri-Lakes Time Trial and a Gran Fondo, both sponsored by Cafe Velo. The local master's race team, Rotor Bike/CP Racing, a local masters race team, organizes the time trial, and based on the comments from participants it's one of the best organized around (if not the best.)For anyone not familiar with the Time Trial format, it's a bike race against the clock. Riders are released from the start at specific intervals (in this case 30s) and…See More

Recovery and Coaching - Still Going Strong!

In a couple days as I write this it will be 3 weeks since my second hip surgery to repair a torn labrum.I wrote about my recovery from the first hip earlier this year. Partway through that rehab my other hip started to shout out in a mild fury, and it turns out that one was injured, too. So the quickest way to get back to action is to fix it. So I went under the knife…See More

"I think that is a possibility if there is interest at that location to do one. The key would be to find times that work for the most people so I could be at both locations! :-)"

Nicole Drummer commented on Nicole Drummer's blog post Lactate Threshold Explained
"Good question, Duane and Jaclyn. Yes, cycling threshold heart rates are typically lower than running because of the non-impact of cycling. The difference is usually around 5-10 beats, but it will also vary a bit based on the individual and their…"

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson commented on Nicole Drummer's blog post Lactate Threshold Explained
"If you are using heart rate as a threshold marker, will it be different on the bike vs. a run? I notice that my heart rate is much lower for the same perceived exertion on a bike, compared to a run."

"Nice, Mary! Congrats on the 5k! And I second Tim's comment that attitude > altitude! :) For some perspective, it took me 3 years to match my sea level PR at the St. Pat's 5k. Now I didn't run a lot of 5ks in that time, but more the…"

Of course you can friend me.  It's always nice to meet other tri-geeks. 

BTW - I just joined this forum and you're my first!

You're so right.  I just don't know if I can hang with the drummer!

Nicole, I am not sure if I am going to see a PT.  I have my first followup doctors appt. on Friday.  I am sure I will learn more then...

Nicole, so you know I broke my femur and thus have very limited mobility below my hips.

 

What are some good exercises that I can do (for cardio primarily) that do not stress my body below the waist.  Currently even sitting up hurts (so situps are out of the question), and I cannot put any weight on that leg (so push ups are out).  The only thing that I can think of is to lie on my back with free weights...  Not many options that I can come up with.

Hi Nicole! Looks like we have a lot in common! Look forward to seeing you 'on the circuit'! Happy New Year!! Be safe!

A Different Kind Of Race Goal

This morning I woke up, checked the weather, and started in on my preparations to get downtown to participate in the St. Patrick's Day 5k. I've run this race since 2008 (except in 2012 when I ran the LA marathon). Even though I'm not really running yet, it's my favorite 5k so I didn't want to miss it. The two main reasons I love this race are:

1) So many people participate and get in the spirit of "green," regardless of speed.

2) It's a flat (for here) course that takes place…
