Are you looking interesting in finding other multi-sport athletes who swim, bike, or run at a moderate to slower pace? If so, consider joining DC Triathlon Club's Moderate and Reduced Speed Pace group!
We aim to help members find others with similar paces, training goals, and/or workout schedules, to facilitate training/racing activities, and to provide a supportive venue. This includes those who run 10 minutes per mile or slower (including those who need to run/walk), bike on average 16 mph or below on flats (including those who struggle with hill climbing or are intimidated by group rides), and swimmers who consistently swim at a pace of greater than 1 minute per 50 yards.
If you are interested, please sign up through google groups here. (To sign up, you will need to create a google group account first.) Once we have an idea of interest, a monthly activity will be organized as a kick-off to this season. If you have any specific ideas or would like to help get group activities started, please email Claudia at email@example.com.
INTRODUCTION TO TRACK WORKOUT
When: Wednesday, August 13th
Time: 6pm Intro session, 6:30pm Track workout
Place: Woodrow Wilson High School, 3950 Chesapeake St NW, Washington DC 20016. Metro Stop: Tenleytown, Red Line.
As a part of the DC Tri Community group, “Moderate to Reduced Speed Pace Group,” an “Introduction to Track” session will be held at the Wilson High School’s track on Wednesday, August 13th starting promptly at 6:00 PM, followed by a 6:30 track workout. This introduction is open to any DC Tri club member regardless of pace! It will cover the basics of track workouts including, but not limited to, form, technique, terminology, readiness, appropriate pacing, and any questions you may have. This is an opportunity for anyone who may not yet have the endurance base to run track (but can use track time to build base), for anyone who has been worried about keeping up with the group, or anyone else who has been reluctant because they don’t know what to expect. Track workout intervals are always based on time and not distance, so no one ever waits for you!
We are requesting that you sign-up so that we have sufficient people to help with the introduction. Please use this link to register. If you have any other questions, contact Claudia Blackburn. Email address firstname.lastname@example.org
