Holiday Workouts

There’s lots to keep us busy over the holidays, along with getting together with family and friends. If you lose Coach Tom’s email, check the calendar of events to see what’s coming up. Happy holidays everyone!

And just like that …

Another season is over and the new one is coming up. Join us at our Open House on Thursday, October 26 from 6:30 to 7:45 pm to learn what our club has to offer. As some of our new members from last year said, “This was the club I didn’t realize I needed until after I joined”.

Where: Bill and Helen Norrie Library, 15 Poseiden Bay, Multipurpose Room

When: 6:30 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.

Email TripleThreatPresident@gmail.com to RSVP, or just show up. Hope to see you there!

 

No Track March 15, 2023

Max Bell is unavailable tonight, so don’t show up for track practice! Coach Tom will be doing an extra long strength session, so check your email for the Zoom link.

Track Practice February 15 cancelled

This week’s track practice has been cancelled, due to a track meet at the field house. Coach Tom has put in a workout for Wednesday that you can hopefully do at another indoor track, like Dakota Fieldhouse, or outside if this nice weather holds.

See you  next week at the track!

Holiday workouts

Our swim workouts have ended for the year, but they’ll be back on January 7th at Boni-Vital pool. Attendance at the swim is almost as good as at the track! Let’s see if we can beat it!

Max Bell is available Dec. 28th – make sure you respond to Coach Tom and let him know if it’s worthwhile to have a workout that day. And of course, Zoom is always available for the bike. It’d be great to work off some of that holiday food.

And the executive has some ideas coming up for a New Year’s get together!

2022-2023 Season has started

Welcome to Triple Threat’s 2022-23 Season!

Triple Threat Triathlon team, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is a diverse group that includes novices training for their first triathlon (swim-bike-run) or duathlon (run-bike-run), and experienced athletes, competing in Sprint and  Olympic distance races.

Our club’s coaching and training focus is centered on training for Sprint and Olympic distances. We also have members who train and race for 70.3 and Full Iron distance races.  Our coach additionally provides a Lifestyle training stream for members who are less competitively minded but want to train regularly for fun, fitness and group support

Weekly workouts will be delivered and monitored by the coach using Training Peaks.  We enjoy three coached workouts per week:

Our training season runs from November to the end August.  As hosts of the event, members are required to volunteer at the Triple Threat Birds Hill triathlon in early June.  We have regular social activities and offer a weekend Training Camp in the spring.

In-person training will follow government Covid-19 protocols of the day if/when in effect.

Triple Threat membership fee:  $170

Triathlon Manitoba ($10) and Triathlon Canada ($15) membership fees, processing fee and GST will be added automatically at checkout.  Please note that there are 3 separate waivers to review and accept before you can complete the transaction.

Registration is live here.

Back to in person workouts

We’ve been extremely cautious during the Omicron outbreak and paused on in person workouts at Max Bell and the pool. But now they’re back. Starting Wed., Feb 2nd, we will meet at Max Bell for track from 6:00 – 7:30. Sat., Feb 5th is the first day for swimming at the Active Living Centre from 1:30 – 2:30. Watch your email for full details.

And here’s some of the activities we were doing over the holidays.

Track Time Trial Coming up

Only one more week of practice before our 3k or 5k time trials at the track. This week it was 800 m repeats; next week it’s 1k. My legs are tired just thinking about it.

Swimming is back on for Dec. 4th. Watch your email for the location of the next long run on Sunday. If you have any special requests for a location, please let Kate know.
