The club's Ironman Training Program will be starting up in January for those of you who are interested in a structured program with a coach. The plan can be tailored to whatever race you are doing. Debi Bernardes is the coach of the program and she is fantastic....there were many PRs among the program participants this year! Registration for the program will open in December. Program details will be posted on the forum and distributed in our newsletter later this month.

Anyone interested in doing a group ride this weekend to burn off some of the extra turkey? Both days look to be sunny and mid to upper 40s.

Yes, there will be a Half Ironman Training Program in 2011! AJ Morrison will be coaching the program and it will start on January 17th.

I've been asking about registration for the HIM program for a while. I'll be out of the country for half of December and don't want to miss it. If you have a distro list please add me - kimberrankin @ yahoo dot com
Just curious, does the IM training program include group workouts or do most people train on their own and with existing club group workouts?
Is there a separate group for folks who just want to coordinate some long training sessions together?
Info on the different training programs should be coming out any time now. We'll be sure to get the word out as quickly as possible and I'll find out some answers for you if I can.
Just FYI, This thread is separate from the HIM/Ironman/Oly Distance/New Triathlete programs. The original poster has actually been injured and isn't organizing anymore so it's up to us to keep it going. Just wanted to let all of the new folks on the thread know that so that no one is expecting an email that may or may not come.
However, I still plan to train throughout the winter and hope that many of you plan to join in the fun. The 2 workouts that I've been attending regularly are the
If roads are dry and it's above 30 degrees (maybe even colder) I plan to ride on Saturday mornings. Below 30 and I'll likely hit the trainer instead. Sunday runs are on in almost all weather conditions... The sloppier the better.
I'll try to post workout info on those threads each week. I may not be at RCP this weekend but there will likely be a group there.
Lately, I haven't been swimming routinely so if you are able to twist my arm and get me into the pool I'd much appreciate it.
Also, sign up for the off-season club challenge by emailing your FULL NAME, USAT # and DATE OF BIRTH to DCTriNCC (at) gmail (dot) com and help DC Tri log miles against the other great USAT clubs out there. You must be paid/active members of both DC Tri and USAT to participate. Do it, it's fun! Swim month starts Dec 1.
