On November 7, 2013 PENN Cycle & Fitness hosted it’s “Indoor Training Kickoff and Open House.” This was an opportunity for local representatives from cycle industry companies (Shimano, CycleOps, Pearl Izumi, and Lights&Motion) and OSI Physical Therapy to display new merchandise and talk with cycle enthusiasts.
Also, many participated in a FREE training class hosted by Trainer Bob McEnaney which gave riders an intense and fun bike workout. They also gave away door prizes after the training session and met soon after for food and drinks. PENN plans to host a winter indoor training program meeting once per week at there Woodbury location which begins November 14. You can check out their event calendar here or see their Facebook feed here.
If you’re in training or doing research on training for a Triathlon, I’ve put together a few solid tips below to consider:
3 tips for Winter Triathlon training:
- Do not burn yourself out with biking or running workouts. Remember this is a time to recuperate and rebuild muscles. Perform workouts that are moderate in intensity with the occasional high intensity intervals and the needed low level recovery session.
- It’s ok to get off the bike 🙂 Try cross-training such as elliptical or the stair-stepper to mix up training sessions. Remember other forms of strengthening such as pilates or yoga are great ways to recover and prepare your next workout.
- Continue to lap swim in the pool every other week to reduce stress and strain of joints that may break-down secondary to excessive running and weight-training.
