Schedule your Bike Fitting – Today!

What are the benefits of a proper bike fit?

A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency.  An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding.  All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.

Who can benefit from a bike fit? 

Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit.  Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.

How long does a Bike fitting take? 

An average fit with fitting lasts 90 minutes.  However, if you have major adjustments or component changes, the fit may be longer.

Schedule your bike fitting today at:

2016 Triathlon Season 
Is it the adrenaline rush of the finish line? The discipline and structure of training? Or the sense of community you feel from fellow triathletes? Maybe it’s a little bit of everything that makes triathlon so indescribably addicting.

Whatever your reason, we’re giving you one more! Make a decision in 2016 on what races you want to do. If it is a Olympic Distance or up to an Ironman Distance, now it is the time to start building your strengths and weaknesses!

Many athletes from the club have races towards the end of the year and may others have started doing their Marathon training. If  you need guidance on how to plan your training and how does the club can help, please reach out to me.

I have been coaching for 13 years, and each time I see an athlete cross the finish line it brings me great joy of their accomplishments. As Coach and an athlete, I could understand the inner battles that we have when we are in the battlefield of race day. Therefore, keep on the good work and fighting out those inner wars that we have within ourselves.  Keep up the good work!

CFL Tri Club Weekly Update – September 14 – 21, 2015

Shut up in There! What really goes in your head while you are running?
The difference between a good run and a crummy one begins in your brain. If you believe a workout will be tough or if you focus on feelings of boredom or fatigue, your body will follow your mind, making it more difficult to have an enjoyable outing. The good news is this mechanism works in revers, too. If you can catch yourself in the act of negative thinking, it’s possible to turn your mind – and your run – around.
Have you hear the following voices in your head:
  • The whiner: “I can’t believe how much long I have to run.” Focus on the next walk break or the next run segment. Look forward to the next tree or benchmark.
  • The Inner Lazy Man: “I’m too tired.” Try repeating positive self talk.
  • The Inner Snail: “I’m too slow.” If you don’t push yourself, you won’t get faster.
Other runners may be doing speed work and working harder than you. Use that as your inspiration. Feed off their energy and pick up the pace a bit. Literally! In other words show up to practice!

Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this past weekend at Timberman 70.3:

  • Zachary Sinnott
  • Grant Sinnott

I am proud of you. Your hard work has paid off!

Power Play

I always love reading an article when it explemplifiues and supports what I preach.  If you’ve ever sprinted to the finish of a 5k, you understand the importance of fast-twitch muscle fibers (even if you wouldn’t use those exact words). The power short bursts of speed, and an excellent way to develop that strength is with plyometric exercises, such as box jumps, jump squats and high skips.

Runners who tackle longer distances or who never race at all also benefit from these challenging exercises.  At the end of a long run or race, when slow-twitch muscles become fatigued, well trained fast-twitch muscles can take up the slack, allowing you to run longer. Therefore, when you’re coach tell you to do a specific exercise. Do it!

Racing your training….not good!
Many athletes are hitting great numbers while running or biking! However, when it comes race day you try to hit the same pace and power output… you just can’t get there.
While training should challenge you, it’s not meant to test you in all of the same ways that racing does.  If it does, you are racing not training. And if you race in training eventually you’ll plateau and won’t be able to match your best practice performances on race day.
The athlete can be pushing themselves too hard in the training, pushing for faster times to show they are in greater and greater race shape. But, many athletes can be racing the training and on race day, they can race flat, tired and unable to come anywhere close to what their training suggested.
Therefore, it is very important to follow your paces during training and don’t be going to hard.  As you approach your next big race, don’t leave your race in training.  Make racing special by saving your best efforts for race day.
