Bonus point for accomplishing the following things:

  • Do the back to school 20k bike time trial at 6PM Monday, Aug. 26 (make sure to record your time for the TT): Park at the Central Baptist Church parking lot. The turnaround will be the yellow "STOP AHEAD" sign before the 4-way stop intersection. Map of the course here: http://connect.garmin.com/course/4581725
  • Get a friend to promise they'll join the team with you this year!

Don't forget, the first fall meeting will be 8PM on Sunday, Sept. 1st, in REC 281 (take a right up the stairs and go through the doors adjacent to the swim spectator area).

Training challenge updates!

Hello fellow zebras. Happy beginning of Gig 'Em Week!

The training challenge is halfway through, and competition is close! There is only a five point difference between the top 10 zebras currently competing in the training challenge! As of week 1, out of 30 competitors, the average amount of points was 12.8. That's superrr impressive, and I'm proud of you hardworking zebras! And don't worry, nobody got max points last week (which is 22 points), so there is still plenty of room for competition!

Don't forget to check the forum page (http://triathlon.tamu.edu/node/138) for details on how to win the primes. There are over 5 people in every category that were tied for first from week 1 (even the bricks!)! Keep up the good work!

Oh and I forgot to mention, there is also a separate overall division prize for incoming members. It's not too late to start!

Fall Schedule Updates

Howdy zebras,
 
I just got word from our collegiate commissioner, Keith, that the Denison Red River Rampage races have all been cancelled due to lack of interest (this includes the age group races too). If you already registered, you'll be refunded. This also gives me a chance to announce some of the dates for the fall so get your calendars out.
 
First Fall Meeting:
8PM Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013 @ REC 281 (Yes I know, it's on a Sunday instead of Monday due to scheduling conflicts... but that means more people can come right? Y'all don't have homework yet)
 
Fall Triathlon Clinic (by coach Michelle LeBlanc):
Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013. Our meeting will also most likely be on Sunday too just because of the clinic but that is TBD.
 
Fall Races (we will get team discounts on all 4 races this year so don't sign up for them yet):
Katy Triathlon - Sunday, Sept. 29 (great for beginners and it won't be cold this year I promise)
Toyota US Open - Sunday, Oct. 6 (**Conference Race for Olympic Distance**)
Try Andy's Tri - Sunday, Oct. 20 (great for beginners)
Bronda's Duathlon - Sunday, Nov. 10 (great for people who don't like getting wet)
 
Also, look for a post about the training challenge tomorrow! I'll be announcing all these dates again as the semester draws nearer.
 
Cheers,
Sean "Excited for all the goody bag swag this weekend at Rivercities Triathlon" Chang

Summer Triathlon Training Program

Howdy all! I hope summer has been going well for everyone! Remember, if you are in need of any cycling gear don't hesitate to call up our bike sponsor, Jeff, at Bay Area Cycling. Also, Michelle Leblanc, our friendly team coach over at Outrival Racing is still prescribing summer workouts at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels! The user login information to Trainingpeaks is located in the forums (you need an account to access it) in case you lost the info.

Are training plans not enough for you? Two of our very own team members, Michelle Dawes and Kyle Blount, are teaching a Triathlon Training fitness class this summer that gets you ready for our first collegiate conference race of the 2013-2014 season, TriAggieland! Here's a message from Kyle: 


Michelle Dawes and I just wanted to let you all know that we will be teaching a triathlon clinic this summer, specifically to prepare new triathletes for TriAggieland. The program is four weeks long, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8-10am, from June 18-July 11 and will also include one Saturday group ride. The information is also at this link:

http://recsports.tamu.edu/programs/fitness_classes/endurance_programs/

I know most of you are out of town or don't need the basic instruction that the clinic will provide. BUT you can assist us by helping to get the word out about the clinic and getting friends signed up. So if you know anyone who's been interested in trying triathlons, curious, or even that you think should just have the experience, PLEASE get them signed up for both TriAggieland and the clinic!


Anyways, until next time!

Your zebra leader,
Sean Chang '13
