Happy Saturday, Tri Team!

 

It was a wonderful weekend to start the triathlon season!  We had many people compete in the Wrentham Season Opener Sponsored by FIRM Racing!  The next race on tap is Sheriff’s Sprint Triathlon on April 29, 2012 in Ludlow!

 

AND THE RESULTS ARE FOR WRENTHAM …….

Men:

Eric Gilmore – PR by 2:53 over last fall’s race

Women:

Peggy Dorval – 1:22:14, which was 3rd, place for the Athena division and a PR with 3:52 off the last time she raced this race.

 

Relays:

Pat Lambert & Shirley Cote – 1:19:51 that was 1st place for All Women’s Relay

Tonya Spagnuolo & Dave Lyons – 1:03:08, which was 1st, place for Mixed Relay

 

THIS JUST IN ……

If there is enough interest, we can get pool time on Friday April 27 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the YWCA in Worcester. We would do a session where Vmps coaches video your swim form and provide feedback. Please email Elaine at (evescio@mpstraining.com)  by 5:00 PM on Sunday if you can attend. If there is enough interest, we'll schedule it. 

*** If you have not been video taped …. I highly recommend it.  You can learn so much and this is FREE for VMPS Triathlon members****

GOOGLE DOCUMENT – SO WHAT IS IT?

Want to stay connected with the team?  Curious about what races fellow team members are participating in?  How about a team workout?

Then make sure you are checking the Google document – “Team Workouts & Events Schedule”.  There are tabs on the bottom of the document for you to click on.  Tab 1 is workouts and tab 2 is Race Results and Schedule.

Please feel free to add you own group workouts ….. do you want to do a long ride on Thursday and want a riding buddy?  Or perhaps a long run on Friday and you want some one to make the miles fly by!

Thank you everyone that has already written in the document about races and workouts!

Did you know that when you look at the document section in your Gmail account you could see if someone updated the document and when.  I know this makes it easier for me to know if I have seen the latest edition.

 

 

CAUTION – CONSTRUCTION

Sources tell us that there is some construction going on some of our favorites roads to bike or travel.

Night work is being done on Rt 20 in Northborough (the latest report was that it was just around Wegman’s).  So you may encounter detours on trying to get to Boroughs YMCA.

Rt 70 from Clinton (you know the Dam Hill) towards Boylston is having drain work and tree removal done.  So there are many areas of a 1-lane road.    

 

TEAM UNIFORM UPDATE

 The team uniforms will be through Zoca Gear.  Dates coming soon on when the fit kit will be in for trying on items for sizing purposes and when the online store will be open for ordering uniforms
