“The only mistake I ever made in an Ironman is running too slow.” - TriForcer Rob Gray
In this issue: * coach will be in Ireland * good luck to Sian, Rob, Frederic and Elmar * join the TriForce Strava Club
Reminder- I’ll be in Ireland until 10/29. All of your schedules should be fully loaded until 10/30. I expect I’ll have limited access to email, but please do email me any questions you have and I’ll respond when I do get email access. This month has been unusual as far as travel– when I get back things will return to business as usual and we’ll officially kick off the 2012 season.
Good Luck to Everyone Racing in the Next Couple Weeks
- Sian “The Afterburner” Turner is racing at the Xterra World Champs in Maui! Good luck Sian– Lance says the course is “tough but fun” — so it sounds like just your type of course. In case anyone is curious about the new Maui race course, here’s a video describing it:
- Rob “An Ironman Per Day” Gray is doing the Morgan Hill Marathon This Weekend. This weekend he finished up his last little taper workout of 3 hours of steady running plus several threshold intervals “until it hurt too much.” (I don’t know why I encourage him by publishing this stuff!) Good luck Rob– race smart & kill it! The team has been crushing it in running races this year and the pressure is on you to keep the streak going!
- Good luck to Elmar At the Beach to Battleship full IM distance race on 10/29. Elmar prepared by following the TriForce 10 hours per week training plan. Follow your nutrition plan, race smart & have fun! Remember that wearing your TriForce top makes you 10% more aerodynamic.
- Good Luck To Frederic “Fast Freddy the Frenchman” (pictured below) Who is competing in a half marathon on 10/30. After his 10k PR we’re excited to see how he does at the half marathon distance!
TriForce Strava Club – Join
For those of you on strava.com, join the TriForce club. The passcode is the name of a giant software company that rhymes with shmoogle. If you’re on Strava follow me & I’ll follow you back– I love getting my morning emails telling me what you guys have been up to. Plus, our club numbers look pretty bad since it’s just Sian right now!
