Congrats to Joshi on completing not only his first half ironman but also his first ever triathlon! What an achievement given that Thursday's Gunpowder w/o was his first open water swim session! He is hooked and is looking to get in another couple of half ironman races before the season is done!
I am not sure if anyone else was in action over the weekend - apologies if I missed you. Feel free to post your results/report on here though.....
The coming weekend looks to be a busy one with Alan and Matt headed to New Hampshire to throw down in the Moose-man half ironman and Olympic distance respectively.
Becky and Ryan are set to compete at Eagleman in the Aquacycle and half ironman respectively.
Thomas is doing the Bay 4.4mi swim..........he just decided that it would probably be a good idea to rent a wetsuit - mad man!
Let me know if you are racing and what race you are doing so everyone can weigh in with their messages of support (and jest!)
We had a nice morning at the pool this morning - the "cold" water turned out to be the perfect temp to smash out a good AM session - here is the work out for those going later:
200 swim ez
400 - alt 100 drill/100 swim
1000 build to race pace. *start out easy, focusing on form and build to a nice quick/clean race pace
300 - breathe 3-5-7 per 50m
200m real ez
We are set to be back at the pool this Thursday. Apologies for any confusion last week.....
I am open to suggestions if you are not keen on cycling inside.
