New week - new attitude.....

With the start of Daylight Savings Time over the weekend I am sure new attitudes are kicking in....better weather just around the corner, longer daylight hours to train and be outside, and the kick off of the tri season just a matter of weeks away.......
That said, I know it was awfully hard to drag yourself out of bed a whole hour earlier this morning, so cheers to Matt, Joshi and Stephanie who made it worthwhile for me being there!

A quick item to note: this Thursday the Merritt people are commandeering the cycling room between 6 and 8pm for another rendition of their "virtual cycling" with Paris Roubaix being the race of choice. That said, you have 2 options for Thursday:
1. Sign up and ride with them - I think it is a single 2hr session - it will pay to confirm.
2. Meet me at the pool at the regular time - we will swim 6.00pm - 7.30pm and then call it a day.

As mentioned - please feel free to use this site as a place to communicate with your team mates from everything to race selection to training rides/runs/swims to social events. I have sent you all author invites so you can gain permission to post. Alan recently posted the following in the comment area:
I told some of you about a really good Tri Boot Camp in Central PA. There are 2 different weekends based on skill level and goals. The first one is the end of March for Newbies and the next one is the 1st weekend in April for those planning on doing Half or Full Iron Distance.

Here is the link:

And finally - for those unable to make it this AM, here is the swim workout for you to do at your leisure:
