i was wondering if there will be opportunities to do some open water training that DC Tri sponsors before the big day on June 20th?
Soon there will be various groups going out to Sandy Point State Park on the weekends, that is when the water temps get above 55. People will be posting on the forum about it.
You can also contact Denis Crean for private, semi-private, and/or group open water coaching at 301-455-4341.
Hey there fearless leaders,
I have a quick question about open water swims in May. The main calendar on the NTP page shows an OWS on Saturday, May 15. However, the sprint training plan for May shows OWS at Lake Anna on May 8, nothing on May 15, and OWS on May 22. The latest NTP newsletter address the swims on May 15 and 22, but nothing about the 8th.
It's all a bit confusing--can someone please clarify and deconflict the calendar, training plan, and newsletter?
Whoops! Our bad. Sorry about that confusion. The monthly training plans were put together before we had dates solidified for all the clinics and had scheduled dates with the coaches.
There is NO open water swim clinic on May 8th as written in the training plan. So do the swim workout instead.
There will be an NTP OWS clinic on Sat May 15th followed by a bike ride. So switch the bike and run workouts that weekend.
There will be an additional OWS session on Saturday May 22nd put on by the DC Triathlon and Sarah Thorpe. This one is not in the calendar because it's not put on by the DC Tri Club NTP Program (and we only got the details for this two days ago).
We hope your training is going well.
