Moblog is about sharing, communicating, playing with new gadgets, and above all having fun!
We love this site so much, we decided to give up some time everyday to help manage it.

Welcome to moblog news. Your community-powered site support hub.

This is one of three moderator-only moblogs, set up by the moderators for all mobloggers.

We are going to use this blog to publish all appointments, decisions and policy changes made between the moderation and site admin teams behind the scenes.

Follow this group to get updates on how the site is developing and to get an insight into what goes on to keeping the good-ship Moblog sailing!

"meet the mods" - Launches today!

At our initial meeting we made a promise to update the moderators list and increase all mobloggers access to site moderators.

We think it is important that you not only know who the moderators are, but feel they are approachable, friendly and people you can trust with some of the day to day running of the site.

As part of this commitment we'd now like to unveil our new blog - meet the mods, which has been set up as a place to enable you to get to know a little bit more about the Moblog team, learn about their roles and responsibilities on the site, and ask any questions you might have.

meet the mods will be updated gradually over the next few weeks and will act as a comprehensive list of the moderators, site administrators and management which you can refer to at any time, and where you can find out who to get in touch with if you are experiencing any problems on the site.

Mat and jc100000 have kindly provided the first two entries. There are many more to come, so please stay tuned!

It's an intro to meet all the moblog mods. The start of a new, more transparent era.

hildegard says:

No, you misunderstand - what is the purpose & value of personal introductions to the moderators?

540air says:

Ah, ok. The point is that people were unhappy with things that were broken on the site and felt that, for whatever reason, the management weren't trying to fix things. To this end we have got together a community management team to take over the day to day running of the site.

As some of the old moderator team have now moved on to pastures new, we felt this would be an ideal way of introducing established and new mods alike, to try and ensure that users have a definitive list of who we all are.

We therefore hope this makes us more approachable if anyone has an issue or problem. It removes the faceless machine theory and personalises the team.

Your first triathlon is going to be tough. Their is no way to sugar coat it. Go into it with the goal of hanvig fun and finishing it. Focus on your strengths. Running. Run 4-5 times a week and mix 2-4 days of biking in there. Make sure you do some brick workouts (ie. bike and then run workout right afterwords). Mix in some swim training when you can, and make sure your comfortable in open water (lake, ponds, river). This is prob more important than actually being good at swimming. Also, practice your transitions (taking off wetsuit, getting on bike, putting on running shoes), you can save alot of time, just by being good in between the swim, bike, and run.The training program you mentioned is decent, but it depends on what the distance of the triathlon is. Sprint Distance, Olympic Distance, other? I would personally always take one day off a week. I also don't substitute strength workout for a cardio workout, because the cardio is much more important in triathlon. The min amount of time you should spend training each time on the bike is 1hr, run 30-45min, and swim 30min.Hope this helps.
