Weekend of August 20 – 22, 2021

Hello Team,

As you aware they moved the 70.3 World Championship from a two day event to a one day event on September 18, 2021 in St. George, Utah. Link: https://www.triathlete.com/culture/news/ironman-shrinks-2021-70-3-worlds-to-one-day-moves-2022-to-st-george-too/

The Ironman World Championship was moved to Feb 2022. In other words it gives more time to train. Link: https://tri-today.com/2021/08/world-championships-ironman-kona-will-not-take-place-this-year-moves-to-february-2022/

For those athletes racing,

  • 70.3 North Carolina
  • Great Clermont Triathlon
  • NYC Marathon
  • IM Florida
  • Space Coast Half / Full Marathon
  • IM Cozumel
  • OUC Half Marathon
  • 70.3 Haines City
  • Disney Marathon

It is time to be consistent with your training if you haven’t been. The last thing you wont to overload your body too much and lead into an injury.

Saturday Race and Tips

 I can’t wait to see you all race on Saturday. Please follow the schedule we sent via TrainingPeaks or Via Email. There is nothing you can do this week that will make you faster for race day. You are ready to race! This week just focus on maintenance and resting. Don’t over do it. 

 

Go to bed early the night before!

 

Please arrive around 5:30 am on Saturday. Before leaving the house make sure you have breakfast. Recommendation: 

Pre Race Meal: 

– 1 cup of cooked oatmeal 

– 1 banana

– 1 tbsp of almond butter or peanut butter

 

Make sure you are hydrating with water and electrolytes. I encourage you to take a serving of BCAA (XTEND amino acids) before 7 am. 

 

You should be out of transition by 6:30 am. We will meet at the swim start at 6:45 am. This goes for the Unified partners as well. We will do a short warm up and ready to rock and roll for the race to start. 

 

Enclosed you will find the Triathlon Race Day Check list that you can use for reference.
