Spark Summer Tri Training Group 2012

Spark Summer Tri Training Group
April 30th- August 26th, 2012
Join USA Triathlon Coach, Angela Park, and fellow triathletes for a summer training program targeting both of Chicago’s downtown Triathlons- South Shore and Chicago!

What is it? A group of 4 (min) to 10 (max) triathletes training, learning and competing together!

Who can do it?  Anybody who has ever wanted to do a triathlon, is looking for a new challenge or who wants to take their triathlon training to the next level!

Will we actually do a triathlon?  Yes!  Our target races will be South Shore Sprint triathlon on July 28th and
Chicago Triathlon (sprint or Olympic) on August 26th.

When and where will practices be?  The practice schedule is:
Mondays 6:30 pm- Run Speed Workout- Lakeshore Park Track
Fridays 6:30 am- Swim, Bike or Brick Workout -Olive Park
All workouts will be one hour except for a few occasional longer combo workouts on Friday mornings.  
Run practices will meet at Lakeshore Park Track, Chicago Ave. between Michigan Ave. and Lake Shore Drive. 
Friday workouts will meet at Olive Park (5oo N Lakeshore Dr)

What will practices be like?  Every workout will be catered towards the group’s specific needs and tailored so that each individual is challenged but not overwhelmed.  A detailed practice plan will be given to participants so they know what equipment is necessary and what to expect each day.  Coach Angela has years of experience working with groups and will structure the workouts to meet each individual’s fitness level. 

What does the Training Group include?  The training group will be lead by USA Triathlon Level II certified coach and personal trainer, Angela Park.  Each group member will receive a training plan for the events and,
due to the small size of the group, lots of personalized attention. 
Angela will also be at South Shore and Chicago to coach, calm and cheer you on. 
Finally, the benefits of group training include camaraderie, motivation, and fun!

What do I need to join?  The items you need to train for and complete your first triathlon are- goggles, swimsuit, bike (any type), helmet, and running shoes!  A wetsuit can be helpful, too.
