Ladies – are you looking to take your racing to the next level in 2017? How about TRI-ing something new? Whether you are brand-new to triathlon or have dabbled this program is for you! Let our exceptional coaching staff, educational clinics, and training plan help you meet your goals.
Our Fleet Feet Women’s Triathlon Program is a 12-week beginner training program structured to help you cross the finish line of your first sprint triathlon, or help beginner triathletes meet a new performance goal. For this program our graduation race will be the Esprit De She Triathlon in Naperville, IL - date yet to be confirmed, but most likely June 11, 2017.
There will be a program informational session on Tuesday, March 14 at 7:15 pm at the Store. Past participants will be here to share their story. Come find out if this is the right program for you. Our program kick-off and first workout will be Thursday, March 23 at 6:30 pm.
When: Training events will be at 6:00 or 6:30 pm on Thursdays and some Saturdays at 7:00 am from March 23 – June 11.
Where: The group will meet at Fleet Feet Sports Bloomington, Normal Community West High School Pool, Rosa Parks Commons, White Oak Park and The Warehouse. Participants will receive a program calendar that highlights where and when the group will meet each week as well as weekly email reminders.
Program Cost: $60 per participant (does not include race registration fee). Participants will have the option to add a weekly strength training workout on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm with Positive Training at The Warehouse (1103 Martin Luther King Drive in Bloomington). The additional fee for this option is $5 per session.
We will be offering two different strength training formats during our workouts on Wednesdays. Functional Circuit Training Wednesdays will focus on strength/power, while our Yoga Wednesdays will focus on strength/flexibility. A strength-training program developed specifically for runners can help keep you healthy and out on the road, in addition to improving your speed and endurance. Targeted strength training for hips, glutes, and legs helps runners stay balanced, decreasing your chance of sustaining injuries related to strength imbalances or weak areas. A strong core helps runners maintain good form over as many miles, move more efficiently, and decreases strain on joints. It can also help with cardiovascular performance, allowing you to breathe more fully to give your muscles the oxygen they need to keep going.
