Triathlon Canada: Regional Training Centre | Vancouver

Sunday June 5, 11

The planning for the Triathlon Canada regional training centre has begun!  Right now I am collecting data from the various stakeholders such as Triathlon Canada, Triathlon BC and the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific.  I have also held some informal meetings with community stockholder, junior and youth coaches and Vancouver based high performance triathletes.

There are a number of topics that are common to each group and intertwined themes viewed from different perspectives.

Managing these into a viable project will be the main challenge!

If our Regional Training Centre is of interest to you, please feel free to drop me a line and share your thoughts.

Triathlon Canada: Regional Training Centre | Vancouver

June 1, 2011

Today, I start my new job as the Triathlon Canada Regional Training Centre coach for Vancouver. My main tasks are centred around developing up and coming junior elite and U23 elite triathletes! To do this I will be building community ties with the triathlon community in metroVancouver and the extended communities needed to support these athletes.

If you are interested in buying into this project as a supporter in some capacity, please contact me.  Who knows, I may be contacting you very soon!

2011 Whistler GranFondo program No.1!

Sunday April 3, 11

I just posted my first program designed for the 2011 Whistler GranFondo.

The amount of supporting literature was a little more work than I anticipated and my beta testers all asked for more information or background!

This is a plan for more advanced riders looking to train up to 12+ hours a week for the next six months to be at their best when the event arrives September 11, 2011.  From long distance easy rides to intensity sessions for all energy systems, its all there. Even suggested terrain and weekly goals to get you properly prepared for the journey to Whistler

The plan is now available through Training Peaks- click on the TrainingPeaks logo in the right menu bar for sample info!

Next up, I will have plans for 20, 15 and 10 week builds as well as less training hours for novice and recreational riders
