I'm a new triathlete and I recently registered for the Nation's Triathlon here in DC in mid-September. Are there any training programs that I can join? I've never done this before and have no idea where to start.
While DC Tri Club does not offer a formal training program for Nation's Tri, there are plenty of resources available to help you get ready. You can download free training plans at www.beginnertriathlete.com to get you started. Another great resource for some of the basics is www.triathanewbie.com. Keep an eye on the club forum, events, and newsletters for weekly training events and upcoming clinics. Club members often post where/when they are doing their own personal workouts as an invitation for company. Come out to training events (and social events too!) to meet fellow club members, and we'll have you out and training to be ready for Nations Tri in no time. Good luck!
