Training Tri’s: Winding Trails & Lake Terramuggus

Last year’s race regimen was intense. With two full length Ironman races and lots of other long stuff, I was due for a mental and physical break. 2011 has been a different kind of year so far, but no less fun. I’m actually having a blast with some of the shorter races and less focus on training. I missed out on some of my favorite sprint races last year and didn’t get a chance to try others. I love the go for broke approach required in these events. You open up the throttle and go full tilt until you either cross the finish line or blow up.

This year, I’ve already done four “training races.” I put that in quotes because at last night’s training race, the Lake Terramuggus Triathlon Series #3, there were 230 people and it was darn competitive. Two weeks ago, there were 160, so this thing is growing. The race consists of a 500 +/- yard swim-12 mile road bike-5 kilometer road run. I love the course and had a blast. I can’t wait to return and take another crack at it. The race is held every other Thursday night.

Every Tuesday night is the Winding Trails Tri Series. This is a offroad event with a 1/4 mile swim-8 kilometer mountain bike-5 kilometer trail run. I love Winding Trails, love the course, and have also had a lot of fun in the two races that I have done this summer. I’m returning for three more in August.  Winding Trails has been drawing more than 130 people each week.

These are huge numbers for mid-week triathlon training series. They prove that this sport is getting bigger and bigger…by the week.

He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
