Workouts for Week March 25th-31st 2012

The beginning of triathlon season is HERE!  It is almost palpable with all those cyclists and runners on the streets.  That is what I love about Southern Utah. 
We are such an active community and SUTC plays a huge roll in getting individuals outside and active!   

With Spring we always welcome many new club members.  If you are new, make sure to get out to a workout and don't be afraid to introduce yourself.  If you are a veteran of the club, make sure to introduce yourself to each and every new athlete!  We all benefit from getting to know one another!  

Jeff Gardner, the race director for the Utah Summer Games (and IMSG) sent me an exciting e-mail that all SUTC Members will receive $10.00 off their race entry this year.  That makes your entry fee ONLY $50.....for an AWESOME sprint race!  For more information on the race, the course, or to register, go to http://utahsummergames.org/sports/triathlon.html.  Use the code SUTC2012 at checkout.  

Registration is still open for the first triathlon of the season SHAC on April 7th!  If you register in person at the St. George Recreation Center you will receive 15% off with your Club Membership.  Remember that if you are not racing, you can still participate by being a volunteer.  St. George City is looking for volunteers for SHAC!  Contact Aaron Metler at (435) 627-4560  or aaron.metler@sgcity.org to volunteer!  

Discount codes are for SUTC Active Members Only!  That's one of the very cool benefits of being a member of the Club.  Use it!  Don't abuse it!  

Phew!  I feel like I could go on and on with discounts and AWESOME offerings for Club Members!  I guess I better save a few for next week.  We will have another TriEdge contest giveaway next week too.  Keep checking your e-mail and Facebook! 

Workouts for This Week 
Wednesday  Sand Hollow Polar Plunge!  Are you training for Ironman St. George or another early season race, come freeze your butt off with a mile open water swim :)  Water temperature is in the low 50's.  Make sure to bring your wetsuit, warm caps, hoods, booties and vaseline.  Swim as long as you can stand!  Meet at the main boat ramp parking lot at 6:15p ready to break the ice at 6:30p.  Once you get our you can warm up on your bike with a few hill repeats :)  

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

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 is Race Day!:  Good luck to club members racing the Sand Hollow Marathon, Oceanside 70.3, Leadman 125k or any other race!  

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!
