Only 2 more group training sessions before the Sprint Lone Star Triathlon on April 4 (Arpil 5 for the Quarter and Half Ironman Distances). So for this Saturday:
What: Brick workout, i.e. some biking followed by running. Our guest speaker is podiatrist Dr. Randy Beckman, DPM, FACFAS. Randy is a Marathon and MS-150 finisher and is a foot and ankle Board Certified Podiatrist. He was the Sports Medicine President in school where he did medical support for multiple marathons in the country. Following his discussion this Saturday on biking/running equipment, care of ankles and feet (against blisters), he will do Gait Analysis and Shoe-Gear Evaluation for all you runners!
We will then do an approximate 45 minute bike ride then about 20 minutes of Running/Walking. This will help get you used to transitioning between the two sports on race day.
When: Saturday, March 7 from 8am to 10am. Please be on time. Note that with other teams meeting there as well, parking is very difficult.
Where: Picnic Loop (Memorial Park). We will meet at the picnic tables in front of the restrooms at the start of the loop.
