The key here is not to increase intensity like many athletes think, but to maintain intensity for the race prep phase while cutting back on volume. Stay sharp while giving the body adequate and increased rest as you gear up to go fast on race day. Increasing intensity too much is easy to do and a common cause of failed race performances.

Group Workouts
Our goal is starting  April 1 we will begin running workouts meeting at McKean High School track every Monday. Click here for a map. Josh Loren, who ran for Penn State and is on New Balance's running team will be heading these up. We will run these starting at 6:00 PM and going to around 7:00 PM.

Open water swims at Lums Pond are scheduled to start on May 1 on Wednesdays 6:00-7:00 PM. We will most likely be in Area 1 again. Click here for a map. More details will follow. Vince Lafashia will be heading this up.

Group bike rides will be Tuesdays starting April 2  around 6:00 PM. We will be starting at Jennersville YMCA and go through the back roads of Amish country. We figure it's much safer than riding in Delaware. Marianne Moore and Dave Myers will be heading this up. Click here for a map to the Y. 

All of our group workouts are for Tri-Dawg members only. 

Have a great week! Coach
