BIKE TIME TRIALS

Nevis Time Trials

When?
every other week, starting June 5, 2018
(check calendar).

Where?
Nevis Beach

What?
20 min warmup ride, followed by 9 mile pedal as fast as you can. We ride the Northwoods Triathlon course. Slower riders go first followed by faster riders. After the ride, we do a 1 mile run. The run is optional, but very important if you are training for a triathlon. This is a great way to get faster and is actually very fun.

Note. Depending on participants, and upcoming races, route may vary, or  two routes may be offered.

Also, check Group Facebook page for scheduling information.

OPEN WATER SWIMS (OWS)

OWS will take place in Bemidji and Nevis over the course of the summer.  Check the calendar and the group Facebook page for more information and scheduling.

Neil King

A free workshop series on how to become a more successful triathlete will start June 14th, 6:00 PM at Halvorson Beach in Nevis and on June 22nd, 6:00 PM at Walker Beach. Sponsored by Northwoods Triathlon, Chase the Police Triathlon, Headwaters Triathlon Club, Up North Athletics, and led by Head Coach Neil King.

This training series will alternate locations each week from Nevis to Walker. Training focus will be on each athlete becoming a more accomplished swimmer, biker, and runner, and on putting the pieces together. Triathletes of all levels of experience are encouraged to attend.

To run concurrently with this training series will be a Headwaters Tri Club Bike-Run workout. A short 8+ mile bike (time trial start, all at your own fastest pace) followed by a short (1-2) mile run.

Who Would Benefit From These Training Classes?

Someone asked Coach Neal what the experience level in Headwaters Tri is and who would benefit from these training classes.

His answer:

I like this classification:
Beginner 5%
Intermediate 55%
Advanced 30%
Elite 10%
Pro 0%

First let me say that no one in our club is required to attend nor will I be offended if you don’t. However these training sessions will be focused on the middle 85% of intermediate to advanced triathletes. With that said beginners are always the ones to have most to gain. I will not ignore anyone and hopefully everyone will gain some new skill or knowledge. If you are one of our elite level members I might put you to work.

Please do encourage everyone you know that will be doing a triathlon this summer to attend. You do not need to be a current club member but I will encourage everyone there to sign up.
