On Wednesday night, just over fifty area triathletes who will be racing Ironman Louisville or North Carolina 70.3 in the coming weeks convened at Endorphin Fitness. The event was organized by the Richmond Triathlon Club and our coaches presented on the two courses and how you can best prepare yourself in the final weeks before the race.
We had yet another strong weekend of gains from Endorphin Fitness athletes.
Our cross-country athletes all finished strong. At their school, Kylie Bosner took the overall win and Lucy Poh took 10th! Laine Mumford, Chase Brooksbank, Connor Doyle, and Colby Burcham all ran their running season’s best at Octoberfest. Jackson Wright and Hannah Lupica both had strong results at the Steward Relay and Pocahontas, respectively. Awesome job XC athletes!
As you start building mileage, the bulk of this additional mileage should come in the form of a weekly long ride that builds for 2-3 weeks and then backs off every 3rd or 4th week for recovery. Start your training early enough so you can build slowly with a maximum increase in weekly mileage of about 10% every week. Plan this out from now to the race to make sure your progression will work.
