Triton Training in Winter Wonderland

Well, apparently there will be absolutely no fall this year…and we are moving right into winter.  After two weeks in hot and sunny Las Vegas, I was welcomed home last week with 40 degree temps.

However, there is some good that comes from the weather turning as it has. For those who are coming off a long, hard training and racing season…this is mother nature telling you to take some much needed rest and relaxation.

If you are one of those who absolutely refuse to sit still for any length of time, at least take this time to prepare for some winter sports.  Personally, I have retrieved the cross-country skiis from the storage unit, and look forward to possibly getting on them come November (we’ll see).

For those who don’t ski, we are still meeting every week until the end of November for a run in preparation for the Rock N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon or Half Marathon.  This should be a nice, flat, fun race to keep motivation high through the cold winter months.  For the next few weeks, we will be doing more hill work to build strength.

As for the Saturday bike rides, we plan on riding outside as long as the roads are dry/clear, and the weather cooperates.  This past Saturday we had a great turnout, and the temps began to warm up after the start.  Everyone is free to ride their own pace – not a race, but don’t hesitate to “mix it up” if you feel the urge.

And of course, I cannot forget BOZE Masters workouts…every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday.  Now is a great time to focus on your swimming, so when the spring comes around, you can devote more time to the bike and run.

There’s plenty of opportunities to train and socialize with the Bozeman Tritons this winter.  Happy training (I’ll see you out there)!

Viva Las Vegas!

Hey Gang!  Just wanted to keep everyone up to speed on the happenings this winter.  For those who truly want to improve in this sport, there is NO “off” season per se.  How about we take a breather, enjoy our friends and families for awhile, then jump into some fall marathon training?  This was the first week of our Wednesday runs (meeting at various locations) in preparation for the Rock n Roll Las Vegas Marathon or Half Marathon on December 6th.  Taking a page out of Michelle’s training manual, you can always incorporate some races for the sheer enjoyment of getting out and exercising.  While some may not find marathons “fun”, I would tell them that it’s all what you make of it.

First Look at Fall Training/Racing Calendar

Calendar

Good morning/afternoon!  Here is a first look at what we have in store this fall.  For those who weren’t able to make the last club meeting, we have decided to add a marathon to the race calendar this winter (Rock N’ Roll Las Vegas).  In September, we will start meeting once a week for a group run.  All are welcome, but we will be gearing up for either the half or full marathon on December 6th.  Also, we will continue to meet once a week for either a road ride, or mountain bike ride (depending on the weather and trail conditions).  Look for indoor cycling to commence after the first of the year.

Autumn 2009 – Triton Training & Race Calendar

Hope everyone’s season has been going well.  From the calendar, there still is a few races that you can still jump into before the snow flies.

Happy Training,
