Triathlon is an interesting sport in that we compete alone as individuals yet train as a team. I can’t say enough about the benefits of training as a group. Every week this summer I’ve held on average 2 group sessions, whether it be open water swimming, biking, or running. Additionally we have had a few Ironman Wisconsin specific prep sessions on weekend days. I love group trainings because athletes are able to gather and exchange stories, training data, discuss race plans, and encourage each other to get through tough workouts. Everyone is someone’s pace and everyone can be challenged to be better by those around them.
Join us this week Thursday, 6pm, Vilas Zoo lot. I’ll be hosting a run session for Team PBC, but this week open to the public with free drop-in.
Hope to see you there,
