Triathlon Training Clinic in Austin held by pro triathlete Michael Lovato
This clinic is on March 2 and 3 – Saturday and Sunday.
We’ll be hosting it at Jack and Adam’s Bicycles at 1210 Barton Springs Road. For directions click HERE.
This clinic is aimed at helping triathletes of all abilities, and will be geared toward preparation for races of all distance: from sprint and Olympic to half iron and full 140.6. We will cater to first timers all the way up to seasoned veterans and even triathlon coaches.
On Saturday morning at 9:30, we’ll gather for introductions and a welcome talk. We’ll then break into groups for a run around Lady Bird Lake. The specifics of this run session will be determined by ability and upcoming races. Following the run, we’ll have a lecture and Question & Answer session that will be centered around how to prepare properly for your upcoming races, how to run well off the bike, how to tackle pacing, and what workouts are key components of a training program.
We will have a short break after the Q&A session, so that athletes can get food and move to the swim locale. We will be swimming at Barton Springs pool, orPure Austin Quarry Lake. Prior to the swim workout, we will host the lecture and Q&A. Our goals here will be to discuss how and where to start your next triathlon, how to best prepare for an open water swim, and we’ll discuss a few key swim workouts that should be repeated in your build-up to the next full, half, olympic, or sprint triathlon.
After the swim session, we will break for the day. Suggestions and opportunities for group dining will be offered – as many of you know, the Austin restaurant scene has many great choices!
Sunday morning will begin with a 7:30 gathering at Jack and Adam’s for coffee and a pre-ride talk. By 8:00 a.m. we’ll begin our group ride. As with the run, distances and ride specifics will be determined based on ability, training goals, and upcoming races. There will be a plan for everyone. Upon completion of the ride - 90minutes to 3hrs – we will regroup at J&A’s to refuel. We will have First Endurance products on hand before, during and after each session. And your recovery needs will be quickly addressed with Ultragen for each rider. (We will also plan to offer some real food to complement your recovery… )
Following the ride, we will again offer a lecture and Q&A session. This is your chance to learn some very effective approaches to properly training for your next triathlon, as well as to address any specific questions you may have. Come prepared to ask, listen, and compare notes with your fellow athletes. Any question is a good question!
To close out our clinic, we will be hosting an awards ceremony, at which point, Lovato Performance will be handing out giveaways and goodies to each deserving attendee.
