    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 ....

    WHAT AN INCREDIBLE DAY AT THE PERTH TRIATHLON!! Thanks a million to Triumpher Kris Plant and her team for putting on another spectacular event! We had a record-setting 25Team Triumph members competing this year..woo hoo!! There were so many amazing stories to be told today;from where everyone started and where they are now. It's all about the journey and for some, it has just begun. For others, it's a test of the three sports and what life throws at you from one year to the next. What stands out, is that no matter what,we stay healthy and fit and keep coming back year after year. It's equally important that wehave the same joy crossing the finish line as we did the years before. As you ....

  • 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. ....
