Welcome back athletes! It's been a while since we last sent out an update, and there is LOTS to report on! First and foremost, the SOUND Training and Racing Fitness Studio is now up and running! Er... should I say spinning!?! We're hosting morning and evening CompuTrainer cycling workouts throughout the week. If you haven't been to the studio yet, come check us out and get your First CompuTrainer Class Free! On Sundays we've been doing a longer simulation ride - where the computer dynamically changes the resistance of the trains to simulate the terrain of some of our favorite courses! The rain and darkness hasn't kept us off our bikes! Throughout April we'll riding the Mount Rainier Duathlon course, as we prepare for that race on May 1st. The Mount Rainier Duathlon, hosted by our sponsor BuDu Racing, is also the USA Triathlon Pacific Northwest Regional Duathlon Championship! There's sure to be great competition there, but Sound Training and Racing will be ready for it!
In addition the CompuTrainer workouts, we've been hosting very popular group swim lessons on Saturdays 12:30-2:30pm at Evergreen Community Aquatic Center. This is absolutely the best deal around for having a USAT Certified Coach (or two!) giving you personal feedback on your swim stroke and being able to practice the drills that will help you improve. We've had all abilities from very beginners to lifetime swimmers - everyone is welcome! Sign up here for our next session!
Of course no triathlon would be complete without some running! Tuesday mornings you'll find us running up and down Avalon Way, building strength to prepare ourselves for faster intervals on the track in a few weeks. Thursday mornings we meet along Alki near Starbucks & Top Pot Doughnuts for a more steady-state aerobic or tempo run. Our long run is on Saturday morning; it leaves from the studio and heads down through Lincoln Park as far as you need to go before heading back to the studio. If you're feeling a bit chilled after your run, our neighbors at Harry's Coffee Joint have a fantastic homemade chai tea and other great treats! All of our runs are free to attend, so we do hope you'll join us! Just make sure you sign up online so that we know you're coming!
