Week of 7/7/14 in Team Z DC/MD

It’s mega race weekend! Two race weekends (Musselman and Colonial Beach) for the price of one. Sweet! Our local weekend group workout is a Saturday brick. Why not consider joining us in Colonial Beach on Sunday? Maybe do a relay or just come down to support the team? It’s just a thought.

Week of 7/7/14 in Team Z West

NO BOOTCAMPS THIS WEEK BECAUSE 90% OF THE TEAM IS TAPERING. IMMT get your strength done on your own.

Was awesome to see 70+ riders yesterday – and lots of folks at the quarry swim. It’s fun to have so much energy in our rides! Keep it up! Now we look forward to our “A” races… this week it’s important to do ONLY what’s on the training plan. It will feel light and you will have extra energy, that’s the point! So don’t do anything silly like adding extra work. Having said that the work that we do – even through it’s less – is still important, so get it in! Do exactly what your plan says, no more and no less.

Eat right, hydrate now, make good choices.

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.

Week of 6/16 in TEAM Z WEST

THIS POST IS ABOUT THE WEEK OF 6/16!

RP OFFLINE FOR A FEW DAYS. I’m sending this out a little early, I’ll be offline for most of next week when baby #2 is born (scheduled for Monday). Honestly, I may be checking e-mail now and then even during that time… but my attention will be divided to say the least. So please reach out today or tomorrow if you have any needs or questions. Otherwise, I’ll catch up with you Thursday or Friday of next week. Remember – I’m available by cell today and tomorrow too – (703) 597-2447. Sometimes questions are easier with a quick call.

If they are general questions not specific to the west – you could also hit up A-frame (speedy) (alexis). Ed is offline to Williamsburg then a quick turnaround to Mont Tremblant, so he is slammed as well.

New Z’s… don’t let this be an excuse not to come to practices next week!! Our workout leaders love the energy of well-attended workouts, and they’re looking forward to working with you!
