Week of October 19 – 25, 2015

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!

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.
