Triton Outdoor Cycling – Starts next Thursday, May 6th. Meet at Bogert Park @ 5:45 PM. Every Thursday, thru 6/24. In the event of inclement weather, the session will shift to CrossFit 4800. Sorry, 9 riders max at CrossFit, drop-in fee required. Check the Club Twitter channel on the afternoon of the ride for possible outdoor cycling venue and scheduling changes.

04.02.2010 Triton News – Training, Triton Mixer

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.

This Week on TriCenter

Vodpod videos no longer available.

September 21, 2009 – TriCenter previews the XTERRA USA Championship in Ogden, Utah, chats with Australian Luke McKenzie from Kona, and sits down with two-time Ironman World Champion Normann Stadler. During an average training week, Stadler stated that he swims 12-to-15 miles, bikes 250-to-300 miles, and runs 50-to-60 miles.  Wow! He’s currently training with a running club in San Diego, in preparation for Kona.  Also, be sure to stay tuned at the end of the clip for a TriCenter Twitter channel giveaway. Train on!

Triton Tweets Now Available on Twitter

TRITON TWEETS
Follow the Bozeman Tritons on Twitter.  It’s Tweeter!
For Immediate Triton Training Updates & News
It’s Simpler – More Timely, More Concise, More Consistent

Why do so many people seem to like Twitter?  Simplicity has played an important role in Twitter’s success.  People are eager to connect with other people and Twitter makes that simple.  Twitter asks one question, “What are you doing?”  Answers (“tweets”) are under 140 characters in length and can be sent via mobile texting, instant message, or the web.

The Bozeman Tritons are now sending tweets and using the Twitter communication channel much more frequently, and more consistently, than email.  It’s quick, and allows us to instantly communicate with members and Twitter “followers” easily, via short mobile phone text messages.

The Club is using Twitter to alert members of training sessions, last minute changes, immediate Triton race results, quick hitting news, sound bites, etc.   These Triton Tweets efficiently provide members with a more timely stream of Triton news. 

Based on initial testing and use, Twitter will likely be the Triton’s primary communication tool.  It may be already.  It’s so simple.

Triton Tweets are now available for all Tritons, Twitter users and non-users alike.  For Twitter users, Triton Tweets are available as a text message on your mobile phone (check your rate plan!) and on your Twitter home page.  For Twitter non-users, tweets are available as a news-like feed on this blog and at http://twitter.com/BozemanTritons

The Club recommends members joining the Twitter network (it’s VERY easy) and following the Tritons.  To stay absolutely current with Club news and activities, check Triton Tweets (and this blog!) frequently, not your inbox.  Click here to join Twitter today — http://twitter.com/BozemanTritons.  Enjoy!
