ATHLETE OF THE MONTH!
This month's AOM is Walt Maxwell. Walt is an active member and supporter of the TTT. His enthusiasm, energy, and positive attitude are contagious and have inspired many TTT'ers to push through barriers they had previously considered impossible to achieve. Even before completing his first full iron distance triathlon at Beach2Battleship, Walt had signed up for IM Canada AND IM Chattanooga! With such a full agenda, expect to see Walt out and about all over Greensboro. I encourage you to click here to read a short Q&A about Walt.
JANUARY TEAM MEETING
This month, we are having separate TTT Girls/Guys Nights out! The ladies will enjoy a challenging yet relaxing Yoga session at FleetFeet Greensboro before heading to Char 7 for dinner and drinks.
The guys will meet at the newly opened "World of Beer". So come join us for a few more drinks before the season really kicks in and we all limit ourselves to Gatorade and GU.
5:30 AM @ Greensboro Day School Track: Interval focused running. We provide the workout which typically lasts 45-60 minutes. We all turn in circles, so no one gets dropped and you can modify the workout to suit your fitness level.
5:30 PM @ NC A&T Track: Join Fleet Feet's coach Carl for an intense AND rewarding track workout. Free of charge and lighted track. See
Fleet Feet Greensboro's website for additional info.
Thursday Trainer Nights:
Bring your bike, indoor trainer, water, and a few towels to participate in High Intensity Interval Training. This is the best way to get a great cardiovascular workout while significantly boosting your power and speed on the bike. Be on the lookout for our FB posts confirming location and time.
