This week we’re going to focus a lot on perceived exertion. Therefore when I ask for the efforts, please follow below:
Rate of Perceived Exertion Easy: Easy means easy. Moderate: Moderate effort means from a scale 1 to 10, I want you at five or six. Hard Effort: When I’m asking for hard/tempo effort I want you to scale from 1 to 10 I want you at seven or eight. Fast / Sprint: Go FAST but be smart and listen to your body!
The 2021 Special Olympic Triathlon Kickoff informational meeting will be on Sunday, January 24 at 3pm. Please arrive early to allow time for parking and walking to venue.

At a Glance
Hurricane conditions are expected over portions of the Bahamas Friday.
Isaias has prompted hurricane warnings in parts of Florida.
First impacts could be felt in parts of Florida as soon as Saturday.
The forecast for this system is still uncertain because of multiple factors.
Isaias may ultimately impact a sizable swath of the East Coast as far north as New England early next week.
I hope you all had a good mother’s day! I want to say how proud I am of our Team. We were there all day Saturday, encouraging and helping Chris complete his 70.3 distance. Thank you again to everyone for your support. I want to give a big shout out to Simone, Carlos, Jennifer and Dan that have helped Chris in his journey.
