Get ready for your first Sprint Triathlon! You will swim 3/8 of a mile, cycle 12 miles and run 3.1 miles. We will get you to the finish line!
Here is the plan:
Armory/T2U will set up a training program for you. You will be coached in a team/group environment. To do your best you need to learn the mechanics, the theories and the techniques of the Swim, Bike and Run. The more educated the athlete, the greater the gains!
Swimming is the first activity of the triathlon. Dry land training will help you understand the most efficient way to swim andtheprinciples that affect your ability to move more easily through the water. We will focus on safety as well as finding ways to relieve any anxiety you may have about the swim. We will schedule training sessions in the pool as well as the intracoastal and eventually the ocean.
Cycling is probably the least intimidating of the three sports and seems the easiest to master. However, we want you to be both fast and efficient. You will learn to cycle under the watchful eye of a coach and understand the basics of cadence, wattage, speed and pacing using our Computrainers.
There is a saying that the triathlon is “won in the run”. The key is to do well in the swim and on the bike and still maintain enough energy to put forth a good solid run. T2U will show you how to manage your energy, and employ the correct techniques to finish strong.
Nutrition is also a critical factor in any training program. T2U will provide you with a solid nutrition plan in order for you to reach your goals. You will understand the role protein, carbohydrates, fats and supplements play in helping you achieve your personal goals.
All of these are included in your Armory Membership Program. Commit to being healthy and happy
