Workout Week- March 18th-24th

What happened to our Spring weather?  This past week spoiled us with some of the most beautiful training weather I think we could ask for.  I'm sporting some awesome Spring tan lines and everything. Then I walked outside this morning!  YIKES!  I'm currently shivering in my house as I type this e-mail bundled in three layers (yup...this St. George blood is thin!).  I think we are all looking forward to the return of the 70 degree weather later this week.  

Congratulations to all those club members who participated in the Spectrum 10k or other spring races this past weekend!  Racing season officially kicks off this month!  Make sure to take advantage of being a member of the Southern Utah Triathlon Club by using the discount codes for races!  Many have already been sent out for 2012 and I'm sure there will be more to come.  The Local tri season kicks off with the SHAC Spring Triathlon on April 7th.  Remember that you can receive a discount on St. George City races by registering at the St. George Recreation Center and telling them you are a Tri Club member.  SHAC is a fun way to shake off the cob webs from Winter and start your season on the right foot. 

We want to hear about all your races and training!  Post updates and race reports on the Southern Utah Triathlon Club Facebook page. This is a fun way for us to continually be inspired and motivated by each other.  

AND THE CONTEST WINNER IS... Michael Green was the winner last week of the SkullCandy headphone package courtesy of  Congratulations Mike and thank you TriEdge for this awesome giveaway.  Make sure to show your support by liking them on Facebook at and by checking out their website.  Watch your e-mail and Facebook for more contests and giveaways coming soon!

Workouts for This Week! 

Wednesday  Beginner Friendly!  Swim workout @ WCCC at 6:30p.  Led by Sterling Cabana who will provide a workout for those who are interested.  You don't have to do the workout.  Just come do your own thing and mix and mingle with other athletes
There are rumblings of jumping in the open water soon.........Stay tuned for details on when we will begin our traditional Wednesday night brick workout at Sand Hollow Reservoir!

Thursday  Beginner Friendly!  Bike ride from Desert Hills High School to the Southern Parkway.  Meet at 4:00 p.m. by the tennis courts.  Ride from 20-40 miles on this out-and-back route.  This is a GREAT ride for all abilities with quiet roads and rolling terrain. 

Saturday  Show-and-Go IMSG Bike Loop/Run.  Meet at 8:45 a.m. at the Snow Canyon Parkway Pond.  Wheels to the road at 9:00 a.m. Ride a single or double loop on the IMSG bike course.  Transition run following the bike on the trails surrounding the pond.  It is getting warm these days so be smart when planning your rides to make sure you have plenty of fluids and electrolytes.  
Happy Training!
