My Story to 2022 Zone 3 USA Triathlon Youth and Junior Nationals by Juliette Soos

It was fun! I enjoyed spending time with my friends and my team. I love that we all had the opportunity to be part of something new and make history. I am very proud of my teammates, all the athletes, and myself for working really hard and pushing ourselves to do our best. I really appreciate Coach Hector, Coach Jeff, my partner, Maryory, and everyone that has supported me each day during training , like my friends at CFL Tri Team, TriPeak, Special Olympics, and my family. Crossing that finish line, knowing that I pushed myself to the limit through the rain was incredible! It was the greatest experience of my life! I can’t wait to do it again!

Week of August 8 -14, 2022

Hello Team,

Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this past weekend;

  • Boulder 70.3
    • Risa W.
    • Rob W.
  • Ironman Estonia
    • Hardik
  • USA Triathlon Age Group Nationals
    • Mariangel
    • Linda

Training Week – Hill Week

This week we are going to be emphasizing a lot on our climbing skills and building muscular endurance. Therefore, we are going to be raising that front wheel and pushing that hard gear this week. It is very important, that you take at least 5 – 10 min prior to each training session for mobility, dynamic stretching and muscle activation. In addition, it is important to do it after as well.

As we are tapping in to your glycolytic system, we will provide enough recovery time, it is important that you fuel properly and take some aminos acids during your training.

Schedule

I am aware that Clermont is hosting a Sprint triathlon this weekend. If you are participating and training for a Full Ironman such as Hawaii / California / Florida / Arizona or Cozumel. Please be aware, that you have a two hour ride after the race! NO EXCEPTIONS! If you are not racing, there is a group that will be riding.

Recovery

Recovery is key to your success. We tear our bodies down to build them back up again. However, we need to allow our bodies to heal! Therefore, when the coach provides you a day off, take the day off! Don’t try to make p for missed workouts, cause this can lead to burnout, adrenal fatigue, and unnecessary weight gain. Therefore, take the day off when the coach tells you to!

It takes 3 – 4 weeks for your body to adapt to your training. Don’t wait till the last minute to start training for your race. You don’t want to overload your body too much; especially, if you are trying to pile up for lost time. This overload can lead to an injury, burn out and eating your feelings. Talk to me and lets set a plan.
