This week in Team Z MDC

I am also posting this message on the Team Z website blog.   For those of you still not on our yahoo groups, I am sending it to your personal email. Isn’t it exhausting being on Team Z?   Thank God for a recovery week. Oh wait! We’re just getting started! The next stop on the Team Z express is Rev3 Williamsburg.  Triathlon training is an endurance sport. Try to keep up!

2. Overview of Team Z Clinics offered this week

Saturday run technique clinic ”“ 8:00 AM ”“ PRR Arlington

This clinic is taught by Pro triathlete 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”¦

When:   Saturday, 8:00 AM

Leader: Alexis and Margie
