ROUNDUP: TRAINING, RACING and BLOGS

Snow on Tuesday, and more on the way tomorrow; if my streak continues, expect a blizzard on April 6th for the Training Day - we're so close to a record snowfall for the season anyways, we might as well wish for more. Never fear though, spring must be around the corner, because people are dusting off their blogs, training days are coming fast and furious, and the racing schedule is taking shape. A few notes:

Splash n' Dash Series
Sheri Fraser has put together a summer Splash n' Dash Series (you'll find the link on the left hand menu). From the website:

The Lake Whittaker Splash n dash is a weekly training race held every Wednesday at 6:30 pm from May 28 to August 27, 2008. Our objective it to provide a fun, grass roots evening of structured, supervised events that will suit both the rookie, wannabe and the experienced, seasoned triathlete. Of course some of you may want a challenge and be competitive [but that will be amongst friends].

A great workout for experienced athletes, and a perfect way to introduce new people to the sport.

Ottawa Training Day
The 4th Ontario Games Training Day in Ottawa will be this Sunday, March 30th, at the Nepean Sportsplex. Registration ($20) is open to athletes age 11-19, and pre-registration is recommended as space is limited. This is a full day of training including swimming, biking, running and sport strength and conditioning. To register please contact NCCP Certified Competition Coach Greg Kealey.

Guelph Training Day
If you're closer to the GTA, we're offering a Training Day April 6th at the PTC. For details, scroll down two posts, or click the Training Day link on the right.


Blogroll
C3 athlete and McMaster student Andrew Yorke has updated his blog two days in a row; a record. We'll be watching to see if he can keep up with this torrid pace.

Guelph running star Reid Coolsaet updates his blog frequently, including a joint interview with Simon Whitfield recently in Flagstaff.

Sean Bechtel (C3 team) recently started a blog too. Sean won the Florida Great Escape tri in Clermont, and will be competing at the Oceanside 70.3 this weekend. Best of luck Sean.

Last but certainly not least, junior Karsten Madsen, coached by Len Gushe, just started up a blog of his own.

That's all for now. Train smart.

Craig you are a joker, 2 days in a row, Tyler told me about this. I don't want my secret training to get out, I'd prefer the rest of my competitors to believe i only workout 2x every 3 months to keep form.
