Eddie Weeks
Say "hi" to Eddie!
Eddie has been doing triathlon for 4 years now, and doesn't show signs of slowing down. He says his key workouts are long rides and tempo runs. They seem to be working for Eddie, you will usually see him in the front of the pack at many races! Another great tip he gives, "find a great group to train with, like the TTT!" Great advice Eddie!



If you see Eddie, be sure to congratulate him on being our AOM!

COACHES TIP OF THE MONTH
-Coach Karen Buxton

Practice Your Transitions!
I believe in the basics: attention to, and perfection of, tiny details that might commonly be overlooked. They might seem trivial, perhaps even laughable to those who don’t understand, but they aren’t. They are fundamental to your progress—they are the difference between champions and near champions.- John Wooden

Even though John Wooden is best known for being a great basketball coach, his quote rings true in triathlon, especially with the frequently overlooked portion of the race— transitions . These connecting segments of multisport events are often not given the thought and practice that they deserve, and a failure to understand their pivotal role in the bigger picture of a race can result in a disjointed and often disappointing performance. Transitions should be viewed as a seamless part of your complete race, not an isolated entity. Like a flip turn in swimming, transitions are at once the end of one section of the race and the beginning of another.

Frequently, races are won and lost in the transition area. Take a look at some race results and check out the transition times of the top competitors, and you will generally find that these top finishers have the fastest transition times. From time to time we see race results where a competitor has been out-swum, out-biked and out- run only to prevail by seconds at the finish line. “How can this be?” you ask. Simple—the runner-up was out-transitioned.
