Join us at Redlands Spine & Sport at 6:30pm tomorrow for our August Club Meeting!
The guest speaker will be one of our own, Andrea Saavedra. In Redlands Tri Club, a lot of members are new to the sport, learning how it all works, and seeing their own progress. Our club is about learning and growing and sharing triathlon knowledge and experiences, progressing through first races to new distances and challenges. Andrea is a great example of really embodying the purpose of the club. She joined as one of the founding members when new to the sport, and at the end of last month she successfully raced Barb’s, a half iron distance race. Andrea will be sharing what she did to get to where she is, including changes in training, nutrition, and mental approach. She’ll also talk about some of the surprises she hit along the way, both in training and on race day. Come hear her experiences and share in her success.
Monday June 13th — 6:30 pm at Redlands Spine and Sport
You’ve been going to the pool, and getting in some laps. But sometimes you wonder… how can you get the most out of your time in the pool? Have you heard about swim sets, but aren’t sure how to structure one? Wonder no longer! Come hear Mike Donia talk about planning that part of your training, and make the most of your swim times instead of just doing laps.
Mike has an Ironman swim personal record of 53 minutes, 70.3 swim PR of 26 minutes, and experience coaching age groupers to improve their swims. He has structured workouts for himself and other athletes. He has raced 8 Ironmans, including 2 at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. He was also previously a pro triathlete at shorter distances. Although not from a swim background, Mike worked hard at improving his swim and understands what the improvement requires, as well as the benefits.
Come see a new super training center! The Energy Lab offers classes (including spin & core strength) along with personal training to get your body tuned and ready for race season. There will be the option of participation and trying out some of their techniques so come ready to play and move! Or just come to check it out and hear some of their favorite training drills.
