    Team Triumpher Spotlight - Ariane Zeba

    Ariane Zeba meets her goal of becoming a swimmer and doing triathlons!
    When I started with Team Triumph I was working out a little bit with a personal trainer and irregularly attending group lessons at a gym. My husband and Iarrived in Ottawa and I began to look up triathlon clubs on the Internet for my husband to train with a club. At first, Team Triumphlooked like a pro club. I must admit that I was a bit intimidated when I first signed up, but my fears were assuaged because the coaches are very welcoming and so are the members of the club. How I joined Team Triumph is an example of how sharing your dream with someone can lead to the realization of that dream! During a hike, I shared ....

    Weekend Highlights (Riverkeeper and more)

    Team Triumph had another great turnout at the Ottawa River Triathlon on the weekend. The weather was ideal and the water was cool but not freezing. The attraction to this triathlon is that your transitions don't count so it's basically 3 time trials. You can take as long as you like to change, drink, stretch and smell the flowers. It's a great training race to try out clothing and fuel for your A race. Jacques Denault just turned 70 and that didn't stop him from doing his first duathlon. His wife Sue Bennett was there doing the Sprint Triathlon without a wetsuit! Congratulations to everyone!! SPRINT TRIATHLON: Sevak Manjikian - 2nd AG Lucie Tremblay- 4th Overall/1st ....

  • Triathlon Transitions Clinic

    The Transitions Area is NOT a rest stop. They are another leg of a triathlon, but shorter. Most people would not do a triathlon without having swum, run or cycled, right? Same should go for transitions. At our transition clinic, we shared some great tips to makethose transition smooth, reviewing what to bring and how to prepare forrace day. We then put those finely tuned skills into practice doing sweet spot bike intervals followed by zone 2 runs. This is a great workout to prepare and train for the transition from bike to run. ....

  • Mont Tremblant Training Camp Highlights

    TEAM TRIUMPH TREMBLANT TRAINING CAMP 2018 A good time was had by all at camp! We were "blessed" with all kinds of weather. We had a warm rain as we climbed and descended Duplessis so we could all get used to riding it in the rain, and then a cold front pulled in and we were challenged to dress for a cool run and a windy and cold long ride. Again, great mental preparation for "anything can happen on race day". The St-Jovite pool was awesome and gave everyone an opportunity to work on triathlon passing and sighting skills plus a few tough drills and sets. Thanks a million to Debi Zaret who graciously hosted the potluck and the 3 Coaches Talk on Tricks of the Triathlon Trade. ....

  • Linda Lafrance Tames the Beast Known as the Boston Marathon

    Linda Lafrance Completes the Boston Marathon!! I was apprehensive leading up to Boston. I know just how insidiously an injury can happen but this time I felt strong and ready. I had two good legs. The weather was tricky, 100% chance of rain with winds at 45-55 km/ hr from the East. So, a head wind all the way back to Boston. I think I got the layers right but the rain weighed me down in the wool socks and warmer long pants. Despite this, my leg muscles never warmed up.I had to fuel more often as my body was working hard at keeping me warm and at feeding my muscles. I started off the downhill at a pace of 5:00-5:15 then tried to stay ....
