I am very excited for this week! This past weekend we did a great brick workout at Lake Louisa. Now it is a great time to set a benchmark in your fitness. This entire week, we are going to be focusing on same race pace efforts and resting on Friday.
On Saturday, if you are not participating in the Special Olympics Clinic, please do the workout prescribed.
Saturday’s workout is going to be a light 20 min swim / 30 min bike / 20 min run. This is just to get your body ready for Sunday.
On Sunday, we are going to go for a 2 hour brick followed by a 1 hour run. We are going to be doing a long loop at the Airport and running immediately afterwards. I encourage you to bring lights so we can start on time.
I am very excited to see the race go by this weekend in Clermont, FL. We have many new athletes racing and the Special Olympic Triathlon Team Florida will be racing as well. It will be great if you showed up to cheer everyone else.
