TRITON RUNNING
Starts This Tuesday, April 6th, Meet at the MSU Track @ 6:00 PM
Triton Coaches recommend group running every Tuesday this year at the MSU Track. The program runs from April 6th through October 19th, and is provided by, and in cooperation with, the Zombro Physical Therapy Interval Training Group. A rotation of coaches will lead these training sessions every Tuesday evening, with Triton Coaches Laurie Thatcher, Matt Parks and Alanna Sherstad serving as three of the “Workout Ambassadors.” These training sessions have the potential to significantly improve your running economy, leg turnover, and performance. The major purpose of these sessions is to provide a welcoming group training environment where runners of all ages and abilities can gain the benefits of interval training, while working at their own level. Coaches recommend warming up, prior to the 6:00 PM start time. Group drills will be conducted from 6:00-6:15 PM. The actual running portion of the workout will begin promptly at 6:15 PM. Early season running conditions are highly variable. Dress appropriately and be prepared for rain, sleet, wind, snow, or sunshine. Click on the link for the complete ZPT Interval Training Group program.

TRITON CYCLING
Starts Thursday, May 6th, Meet at Bogert Park @ 5:45 PM
Triton Coaches will lead group outdoor cycling sessions every Thursday this year. The program runs from May 6th through June 24th. These outdoor training sessions will include bricks, tempo rides, time trials/intervals, and hill repeats. Meanwhile, the Triton indoor cycling program has one month remaining. The MultiRider program is SOLD OUT, and the coaches ask that members riding in this program be sure to sign up by 5:00 PM on the day of the ride. Free, uncoached use of the Triton CompuTrainer remains available to all Tritons. Schedule via the new Triton Scheduling Platform here – http://bit.ly/6pTOy9.

Have a Chance to Win Free Rudy Project Gear

Meet Triton Coaches Laurie Thatcher & Matt Parks, and welcome new Triton Coaches Alanna Sherstad and Jo Van Cutsem. This fun “open house style” mixer is open to all current and prospective Triton members, and informally serves as the Club’s annual meeting. Join the Club. Discuss the 2010 Triton training program and area races. Bring your questions, suggestions, and other ideas. Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering to serve the Club in some capacity, please bring it on. For some added fun, club members (those who could not participate at the Triton Winter Camp!) will have four chances to win Rudy Project gear, sunglasses and helmets valued at approximately $200 each. Winning names will be drawn at random, likely every 30 minutes, starting at 6:00 PM. Winners must be in attendance, and represent the Tritons by wearing the RP Gear during their triathlon(s) this year. Other giveaways may be possible.
