How to Balance Life and Triathlon    

Monday, August 1, 2016 by Coach Lawrence

One of the hardest parts of training is balancing our life responsibilities with the need and desire to get out and train.  Most of us have other obligations outside of triathlon that stretch our ability to do what we enjoy. While my job is pretty flexible and allows me to get my training in, my […]



Staying tri active while traveling to “foreign” places

Friday, July 15, 2016 by Coach Kristen

I often hear people question on how to stay active while traveling.  I recently took a trip to Montreal and wanted to share a few tips I used to stay active… 1) Two weeks prior to traveling I searched online for local triathlon clubs.  I contacted the director and asked if I could drop in […]



Mistakes Triathletes Make

Friday, July 1, 2016 by Coach Tommy

Judging their training success in hours and distance trained Many athletes focus too much on achieving a certain number of hours of training or a particular distance.

Suppose I gave you this bike workout: Warm up for about 20 minutes. Then do 30 x 30 seconds at z5 (VO2Max) with 30 seconds z2 (Steady State) between each interval. Cool down the last 10 minutes.
