Team Triathlon Training for This Weekend (6/13-6/15) in Team Z

Here’s your weekend triathlon training email – you’ll find the weekend updates right here for Washington DC, Arlington, Fairfax, and everywhere we are doing our training, including our big races!

REV 3 DETAILS ARE IN ANOTHER E-MAIL

LAST MINUTE QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS WEEKEND. So, baby #2 is due to arrive on Monday. But… I’ve given myself a few weekends off in a row just in case she comes early. Including this one. I don’t mind last minute e-mails or calls – I get them every weekend – but I just wanted everyone to know that if I’m unresponsive you may want to reach out to the person in charge of that particular workout. I will not have my cell with me in the delivery room. J And of course reading through this NOW and asking questions ahead of time is helpful.

==============================================
Saturday run technique clinic – 8:00 AM – PRR Arlington

Margie is one of our favorite people on earth. Come see why! The deets…

This clinic is taught by ProTriathlete and Potomac River Running Store Owner, Margie Shapiro.  The clinic will begin with an overview of gate analysis and proper shoe selection.  It will then move into a high level introduction of running form, most common mistakes made by runners, and how to fix those mistakes.  The goal is to introduce you to the basic concepts of proper running form to aid in prevention of running related injuries.  The lecture will cover all of the main topics and tools that can be used to improve your running technique, and then we’ll move outside for a session to have you practice some running drills.  People will be asked to participate as examples and we’ll correct running form as needed.  So wear your athletic gear and expect to be “active”, though we are not going for a “group run” during the clinic.  So don’t worry about that! Unless you want to hash afterwards, which is a no brainer…

Saturday hash run – 9:30 AM – PRR Arlington

If you don’t think hashing is awesome then you need awesome lessons. Alexis teaches them every other Saturday if needed.

No experience necessary! Seriously. We will explain everything to you. This is a fun way to get your workout in guys, so please join us! And it’s right after the clinic so two birds. And then grub after at one of the many choices in the area.

Sunday group ride – 8:00 AM – Glen Echo Park, Glen Echo, MD

See ya at Glen Echo Echo Echo.

We will be using the neighborhood routes – which does include the infamous “Brick Yard” hill for warm up.  Walk it if you can’t stay aerobic please.  It is not long!  Well, ok, you new riders will think it’s EVIL. But after that – the ride will take you into the famous Potomac Neighborhoods with some “smaller” homes!

This is as local as it gets… lets have a big turnout here! Your head honcho for this workout will be Abe… he is jazzed to work with newbies and show them the ways of the Z. We also have three ride leads – which is very conducive to newer riders looking for help!

THERE WILL BE LOTS OF CYCLISTS OUT ON THIS ROUTE… AS ALWAYS WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE HELP OUR SAGGERS IDENTIFY YOU BY WEARING TEAM Z STUFF.

Distances: 14, 20, 28, 34
Distance notes: 2 hours TOPS. 34 = 20 + 14 in that order please.
