Going forward if you are interested I will do these starting 9/10/09 and every Thursday after until the end of October. The workouts will start at 5:30pm
Thursday at LVAC Rainbow Pool at 5:30to 7pm. We will be doing mini triathlons and working on transition training. Bring clothing you will race in and towel to set up for quick transition. This will be done indoors. Be prepared for a quick swim, short bike and quick run.
Brick workout and open water swim
The next open water swim at the lake will be on 9/9/09. I will be out there starting a ride at 7am. We will ride for about an hour, then run, and then swim.
Spin Classes and Swim Classes
Remember I still teach spin classes at LVAC on Saturday at 1:30pm. I also teach at 24hr Fitness in Summerlin Sundays at 8am. I also teach swim mechanics Tuesday and Thursday at LVAC on Rainbow at 5:15pm-7pm.
This coming weekend on the 12th I will be doing a moderate to hard ride leaving about 7am. We will ride West Charleston to the Red Rock Loop. We will do the loop then ride out to 160 and back. It will be moderate effort and for anyone who has not done the loop you should know it is HARD! The loop is 13 miles of hills and the total mileage will be close to 50.
