    Record Cold Water Temps Did not Stop Us!

    BRITANNIA PARK TRIATHLON
    After a really chilly week in open water, we were all skeptical about doing a triathlon in the Ottawa River. But being the crazy triathletes we all are... WE DID IT! The water was colder than I have ever swum in and we all had a bit of trouble breathing due to the cold water but we all managed to get in and get the job done with great success. What a confidence booster knowing that the water is only going to get warmer! Congratulations to everyone on a successful event! SPRINT TRIATHLON

    The Perth Triathlon has always been a long time favorite for Team Triumph.

This race also gives themore seasoned triathletes a little healthy red lining competition! For some of us, it's a check to see that we can still do this race and at a good speed! It was a very wet morning but you're wet when you come out of the pool anyway so no need to complain. Triathlon is an outdoor sport and sometimes you just have to ....

Thank you to Maggie, Kevin, Brenda and Martin, our coaches and support crew who came up and made it one of our best camps yet!

Everyone was in top form on day one to be able to complete their long rides and learn about group riding. The dinner and coaches' talk at Casey's covered everyone's survey questions and a few new gems from the 2018 Training Peaks conference in Manchester. On Friday we had a morning swim practice followed by a wet run along the course and then the pièce ....
