IN-STORE TRAINING SCHEDULE
6-7 PM: Tuesday - Strength training. All you need is your workout gear and water bottle…and a towel for the sweat!
6-7 PM Wednesday - Indoor bike (outdoor in daylight conditions) Bring your bike and trainer, water bottle and towel. We will do drills and conditioning to strengthen legs and cardio-vascular conditioning.
6-7 PM Thursday - The Power Tri. We will ride and run in this brick workout, so bike, trainer and running shoes needed for this high energy workout. We train the transition and condition your body for the switch from biking to running- the most challenging part of the race.
7:30-8:30 PM Thursday - Pool Swim. This is why it’s labeled the Power Tri…it’s time to swim. From the store we move over to Cross Timbers Jr High and the GCISD Pool for a 45 minute training session where we work on your form and put in the yardage you need to get you thru, what many people consider, the most mentally challenging part of the triathlon. Whether experienced or a novice, we can get you ready to feel confident in your abilities to finish. (an additional $2 required per swim to GCISD) https://www.gcisd.net/departments/athletics/swim_center
6AM Saturday - Group ride #1 starting from the store. We ride on the roads in the local area. Lights required for this ride. It’s a quick “Drop” ride (if you can’t keep up, they don’t wait) 25-28 miles.
7:30 AM Saturday - Group ride #2 starting from the store. We ride on the roads in the local area. This ride has a “No-Drop” component with a slower pace and we make sure you get back OK, no matter your speed. There are typically faster riders as well from the earlier ride if you want to stretch yourself and go for your personal best speed.
9 AM Saturday - Open Water Swim - We start this training sometime in March, so you are gonna need a triathlon wetsuit. We rent or sell those along with a safety buoy which is required. We swim out of Meadowmere Park on Lake Grapevine (there is a $5 admission fee to the park or $35 annual pass…best value) We will set up a course off shore with floating buoys to practice sighting. We keep the swim course close to shore and only 3 strokes from shallow water where you can stand, in case of nervousness. You will receive training on open water swimming, as well as drills to make you comfortable in this unique environment.
