Have you ever thought of doing a Triathlon but didn't know how to get started? Or, do you have triathlon experience and want to improve your sprint triathlon times? Fleet Feet Sports is excited to offer our Sprint Triathlon Program again this year. This program is designed for the new triathlete as well as for the triathlete wanting to improve their sprint triathlon race splits. For those new to the sport, the training program will put an emphasis on creating a fun, comfortable and motivating atmosphere for learning the fundamentals of swimming, biking, running, transitions, equipment, nutrition and mental planning. For those looking to set some personal records, we address all of the above with additional guidance-targeting those details that shave seconds.
Our goal race is the second Lake Terramuggus Sprint Triathlon on June 20th. Practices are Monday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm at Cornerstone Aquatics and on Saturday mornings from 8-9:30am at various local locations. In addition, there are optional Wednesday and Thursday run sessions available. The training program will begin the week of April 1st, 2013. It will be limited to 35 people in order to provide a low coach-to-participant ratio.
