Coach Bees will be hosting a Triathlon 101 Clinic at South Yuba Club at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 23. Meet in the Personal Training Center – it’s the first building on the right at the Nevada City location (not Grass Valley). This clinic is open to the public.
This clinic is designed to help relative newbies to the sport navigate race day so that there are no surprises. Although the discussion will be focused around the Barbara Schmidt Millar (BSM) “A Celebration of Life” Triathlon, many of the concepts discussed will apply to universally to all races. Topics include:
Training: How much do you really need to train to finish a sprint triathlon?
Gear: Do you need a fancy road bike? Do you swim in bike shorts or bike in your swimsuit? And how do you put socks on when you’re dripping wet from the swim?
Injury Prevention: How safe is it to train on Pasquale? What will you do during the swim, bike, and run to make sure your training and race leave you feeling better, not worse?
Nutrition: What should you eat the morning of and during the race?
Bring any other questions you have next Wednesday as there will be ample time for Q&A.
