One Week to Race Day

It is hard to believe that there is only one week left until the first race of the season (Caledon KOS hosted by the C3 club). Seems impossible that five weeks of training have passed already. Just like the old saying... Time flies when you're having fun.

We will be training at the race site this week to go over the course and get familiar with the set-up.

On another note, congratulations goes out to several fun2tri members on their performances for their school track and field and cross country teams. At the north Peel cross country championships, Aidan placed 1st in the senior boys followed by Ben in third. Their team also won the team championship. Jillian placed 4th after a hard fought battle inthe senior girls event and Paige placed 8th. Ellen placed 15th in the junior girls event.

On the track, Sasha, Myles, Alana and Kyle have been competing at invitational and regional events with their highschool teams. Sasha and Myles both qualified last week for South regionals in the 3000 and the 1500 with strong performances. Good luck in St. Catherines.

Happy training this week. Eat healthy and get lots of sleep.

Two Weeks of Training

The first two weeks of training have gone extremely well despite the cold weather on a few nights. The Thursday group started off with some easy workouts due to the athletes' involvement in school track and field and club swim meets. However, last night things got moving with a 15km individual time trial on the bike. Despite the heavy crosswind, all the athletes posted great times which we will try to beat next month.

The Tuesday group has been working hard on their bike handling skills and this past week successfully attacked the hills in the subdivision up the road. Their enthusiasm for inventing new games of tag at the end of practice are most admirable.

Just a reminder to parents, to register your athlete for the Caledon KOS race on May 30. (

There will also be a optional bike/run workout on Sunday May 9 at 1:00. We will meet at Robert F Hall and ride approximately 30km and then run 6 km at Albion Hills Conservation Area. Please let me know if you are planning to attend.

See you next week.
