September 13th Weekly Update

Upcoming Workouts

No workouts planned. We are always looking for workout leaders – if you would like to lead a run or ride, just let us know.

Because seriously – it is like second summer out there. Take advantage before the flurries fly!


Strava Results

We might have missed the official calculation by Strava – but Zindine has saved the day by calculating the details for us. (Yay Zin!)

unnamed-1

We completed a nice, round 100 logged training activities last week. We were juuuuuust shy of 100 hours – which drives my OCD tenancies bonkers. But, this makes it no less an impressive feat. Well done everyone!


FMCT Uniforms

If you have been checking out the pictures of some of our members and noticed that we have some pretty sweet club gear, and were getting all ‘jelly’ about how you didn’t have any … you might be in luck. Because Dudes and Dudettes – we have a small selection of extra inventory that we would love to hook you up with!

To order, just check that what you want is available, and then go through our online shop to place your order. Here is the list of whaunnamedt we have available:

Men’s sized gear:
Tech Short Sleeve Jersey (L) x 2
Tech Short Sleeve Jersey (M)
Tech Short Sleeve Jersey (S)

CS Edge Short Sleeve Jersey (L)
CS Performance Link Tri Top (L)
CS Cycling Shorts (L)

CS Performance Run Singlet (M)

Women’s sized gear:
Tech Short Sleeve Jersey (M)
Tech Short Sleeve Jersey (S)
CS Performance Link Tri Shorts (L)
Edge Cycling Shorts (L)

And if you really want something not here, don’t fret too much. We will likely be placing another order early next year.

Supported Ride for a Cause

Greg’s Ride – September 25th
This ride is located nearby (Campbellville) and the routes are on some good rural riding roads. This is a great cause, that is likely of interest to folks like us – raising awareness and funds for cycling advocacy.

There are 3 ride distances: The Promenade (15km), The Challenger (60km) and The Ultimate (98km). Your registration includes on-route support and snack stations (yumm!), a hot lunch (double yumm!), beverages from our friends at Steamwhistle (triple yumm!), a participant kit bag of goodies, free on-site parking, and a post-ride yoga session. (This sounds like a lot of spoiling for a tough triathlete/duathlete.) You can check out all about it on their site: Greg’s Ride – Ontario’s Ride for Safer Cycling

Because we love our members, and we happen to have an inside scoop – we have a promo code that should give a nice little discount off your registration cost. Use “20TeamDoug16” and you will save 20%!

September 6th Newsletter

Message from your Executive

September is here – but it sure doesn’t feel like it. With temperatures soaring and humidity high it is more like a second August! Despite the resurgence of warm temperatures, the Triathlon/Duathlon season will soon be coming to a close. We hope you are proud of your accomplishments this year – because we think our club rocked it.


Workouts

Week of Sept 5th to 11th
Unfortunately it looks like our main workout leaders are busy with back-to-school or other September activities – so there are no workouts planned for this week. If you still have some races in your calendar for this month, don’t forget to do your own training!

Fall & Winter Workouts
The remaining executive (see the announcement below) are working on confirming the programs, but are excited to announce the following planned programs:

Tuesday – Pool Swim (Mayfield Rec Ctr)
Wednesday – Spin Class (Bolton)
Thursday – Strength Class (Brampton)
Saturday – Spin Class (Brampton)
Sunday – Ad-hoc Runs
TBD – Yoga Class (depending on interest)

More details will be sent out soon – but we wanted to get these nuggets of information out to you so you can plan your off-season schedule. If you have specific questions, please send us an email.

Race Spotlight

Ironman Mont Tremblant14067866_10155112923815961_449703535938860633_o
You may recall from our update last week that the Mont Tremblant Ironman happened in August. We had quite a contingent up there “repping” the club. We had 4 guys complete the Ironman, and many more on the sidelines cheering them on. We know that the Ironman distance isn’t for everyone, but for these guys it was a goal that they knew they wanted to achieve. (And it is kind of a big deal.) For that reason we want to give a special shout-out to Matthew P, Zindine S, Louis M and Paul B for their persistence in training, and their courage in cycling through the rain on race-day. We will see if we can convince one of them to write a race report that we can feature on our website.

Most Frequent Racer – August
If you are one of those people who only quickly glances through our race results, you may have missed some pretty impressive results that have been posted this summer. One impressive member that we would like to call out for the month of August is Cesar C. He competed in 3 different Try-a-Tri races in the same month! Not only is this a lot of travel time, but also a significant commitment to training and planning. Especially for someone who just branched out into the Triathlon world this year.
Well done Cesar!


Opening on the Exec

Our Treasurer/Secretary (and persistent email writer) Rebecca M will be ‘retiring’ from her position on the Executive at the end of September to focus on growing her family.

This means we will need to find another person to round out the 3 person Executive. If you are interested in this position (or in volunteering in any other way for the club) please send us an email to let us know.


Strava

Who lets me be in charge of things!?!? I missed the cutoff to check our status last week (again). So instead of actual numbers and a pretty status picture I will just say – kudos to everyone who put in great efforts last week. We know that by the end of August it is harder and harder to feel motivated to do your training.


Upcoming Events

September/October:
TBD – Annual Meeting
TBD – Trial Yoga Class
Sunday – Ad-hoc runs

November (tentative):
Tuesdays – Pool Swim
Wednesday – Spinning
Thursday – Strength
Saturday – Spinning

August 30th Weekly Update

Upcoming Workouts

Wednesday August 31st
Track Speed-work: 6:45-8pm @ David Suzuki SS
“… Baby one more time”
Okay – we won’t be belting Britney lyrics, but we will be running around the track for just one more time this season. Don’t forget to bring your hydration (we suggest adding some ice to keep it cool).

Thursday September 1st
Open-Water Swim: 6:30-7:30pm in Professor’s Lake
Can you believe it? This is our last club open-water swim of the season – where did the summer go!? We have just the one hour tonight – so make sure you arrive on time to get in all of your loops.
If you are paying by drop-in, don’t forget to show up early or stay a bit later to complete your payment.

Post-Swim Run: 7:45-8:15pm around Professor’s Lake
Last week we were joined by ironman … who knows what surprises will be in store this week. (Okay. So it might not have been the ironman most people think of, but we were still impressed.)

Saturday September 3rd
Group Ride: 8:30am departure from Fletcher’s Meadow SS
Pace – Nobody left behind
Leader – Irina S
Route – Forks of the Credit! (full map here)
Distance – Full route is 65km
Destination – Spirit Tree (at 50km)
Goal – Have fun! 😀
Please send us an email to let us know if you are going to be joining us. (It lets our ride leader know to look out for you in case you are running a little bit late.)

Sunday September 4th
Non-Club Open-Water Swim: 2-4pm in the C3 Quarry
One of our local tri-club counterparts hold open water swims up in Caledon in an old Quarry (you can view the location here). If you are looking for an opportunity to continue practicing your open water swimming, and you really like hanging out with FMCT people, there will be a few of us there splashing about in the water.
This is NOT an official FMCT workout – you will need to arrange payment of their $10 swim fee with the C3 club. You can obtain more information via their facebook page.


Hawaii!13954543_1471965732.5085_funddescription

For those who are not as immersed in the cult of long-distance triathlon – the biggest and baddest Ironman race is the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Want more info? You can read about how it all started on the Ironman website.

Each year thousands upon thousands of individuals race in Kona Qualification races across the globe. (For some context – these races are the Ironman distance, so they are definitely no joke.) And from this huge group of people, only the best of the best qualify for a spot to participate in this Championship race. This year our own coach Matthew Poole stamped his ticket with a 3rd place finish in his age group at the Ironman Mont Tremblant race. Not only was he a top finisher in his age group – but he finished 30th OVERALL out of almost 2500 people.

Matthew has been a very supportive coach for our members of all skill and experience levels. And while we are often reaching out to him with our questions and requests for assistance, he is now asking for a little bit of assistance from us. He has set up a GoFundMe page that includes a great story about why he got into the sport, and offers the opportunity for us to support him as he goes out to achieve his lifelong dream.

Upcoming Workouts19900-fbfe10-27677397

Wednesday August 24th
Track Speed-work: 6:45-8pm @ David Suzuki SS
And we’re back! Another night, another spin around the track. The temperature looks like it is tracking back up, so don’t forget to bring your hydration. (I recommend adding some ice before you leave home so it isn’t warm by the end of the workout.)

Thursday August 25th
Open-Water Swim: 6:30-7:30pm in Professor’s Lake
A shorter swim again this week due to the earlier sunset. How many loops will you aim for in this hour of swimming?
If you are paying by drop-in, don’t forget to show up early or stay a bit later to complete your payment.

Post-Swim Run: 7:40-8:30pm around Professor’s Lake The season may be coming to a close for many, but there are plenty of reasons to come out for a run with us. It is a fun little loop around the lake.

Sunday August 28th
Open-Water Swim: 8-9:30am in Professor’s Lake
If you are looking for an opportunity to swim yourself dizzy – you are in luck! We will get a full 90 minutes to swim in the morning.
If you are paying by drop-in, don’t forget to show up early or stay a bit later to complete your payment.

Post-Swim Run: 9:40-10:15am around Professor’s Lake
A Sunday morning run? What fun! In the sun? We do hope so.
Will you join us?


Strava Update

I have a confession to make – I totally and completely forgot to check in on the Strava details for last week! (See – this is what happens with Zin and Irina leave town, this place falls apart.)
So – without the actual numbers all I can say is … well done everyone on some stellar training and racing.

August 16 Weekly Update

Upcoming Workouts

Wednesday August 17th
Track Speed-work: Cancelled this week
Send us an email if you would like for us to send you a workout to do on your own. The track will still be there (and will likely still be available) if you want to use the awesome cushy rubberized surface.

Photo 2016-08-11, 6 54 02 PMThursday August 18th
Open-Water Swim: 6:30-7:45pm in Professor’s Lake
We are dropping down to a 75 minute swim this week due to the earlier sunset. Our regular paperwork and membership gurus won’t be there – so please bear with the replacements (Rebecca & Carey) as we step in and try not to flub up too badly.
If you are paying by drop-in don’t forget to show up early or stay a bit later to complete your payment.

Post-Swim Run: 7:55-8:30pm around Professor’s Lake
Our group will likely be a bit smaller – but we are still planning on trotting out a running lap. Will you be joining us?

This Weekend
No planned workouts – our main ride leaders are off to Mont Tremblant to challenge themselves at the Ironman (or to cheer or someone who is challenging themselves). You can pop online to track their progress as well on race day – just go to the Ironman website and look for the ‘live coverage’ link.

Good luck to all competing this weekend – whether you are at Mont Tremblant or elsewhere.

Strava

We don’t have the pretty picture this week – but we think we grabbed the totals from everyone’s logged workouts in Strava. And we have another great set of results to report.
Another 2020km completed. Well done everyone!

August 9th Weekly Update

Upcoming Workouts

Wednesday August 10th
Track Speed-work: 6:45-8pm @ David Suzuki SS
The forecast is calling for another hot week – but we won’t let that stop us! We will be ripping up the track with our super speedy runnIMG_5380ing stunts again this week.
For those who have not yet participated … we aren’t actually ripping up the track, nor is everyone who participates breaking speed records as they run around. It is a fun and inclusive workout that is great for anyone looking to get in another running workout. 🙂

Thursday August 11th
Open Water Swim: 6:30-8pm in Professor’s Lake
We are able to fit in another 90 minute swim session this week – will you be there? If you are paying by drop-in, please give yourself enough time before or after the swim to complete your payment.
As a reminder for all swimmers – Swim Caps are mandatory to participate in the lake swim. There are many specific reasons for this – but we will just sum them all up to say that this is for ‘safety’.

Post-Swim Run: 8:10-8:45pm around Professor’s Lake
One Fish, Two Fish, Swim Fish, Run Fish … wait, that isn’t how the rhyme goes … But that is how we train on Thursdays. Join us after the swim for a running loop (or two).

Sunday August 14th
Open-Water Swim: 8-9:30am in Professor’s Lake
Two swims in one week … are we nuts? Absolutely! But don’t let that stop you from coming out to join us for a fun morning swim.
Our morning swims often have smoother water (although we cannot make guarantees that this weekend will keep that trend … it is just that numbers are in our favour suggesting that it will be smoother). If you are paying by drop-in, please ensure you arrive early or stay late to complete your payment.

Post-Swim Run: 9:45-10:10am around Professor’s Lake
There may or may not be any Pokemon’s to be found, but there will most likely be an FMCT member or two trotting around the lake after the swim. Come on out and join us!


Strava Update

Wow … just … wow. I have no words you guys! We pulled together over THREE THOUSAND km’s of training and racing this past week.

Somehow this summer has just flown by – and it is August already! We have had great turnout at our weekly open water swims, and we are super-pumped to see so many new faces enjoying the experience. (We are also very proud to see the faces of those who might not be enjoying the experience right now, yet are determined to keep at it until it is an enjoyable experience.)

540f87f9-4b97-45ba-81ca-d9184b23b37dSunday is our Tri & Du Simulation Day


Final reminder – our second Simulation Day for the summer is this Sunday. Please confirm your attendance by completing the FMCT Simulation Day Survey.

The day will start with the opening of the transition area at 7:30am, followed by the lake swim at 8am. We have the lake booked until 9:30am and you can swim as long or short as you want within that time. After you are done with your swim, make your way over to the transition area to do your bike and/or run. For those not familiar with the set-up the following image shows where the swim and transition will be set up.

There is a $5 cost for members ($8 for non-members) to participate in the Simulation Day event. (You can pay at the event, or pre-pay online on the FMCT site.) If you are paying for your swim by drop-in you will still need to pay for that drop-in session.

We will provide a supervised transition area (your stuff won’t grow legs and walk off), and there will be drinks provided (water & gatorade) as well as snacks once you are done.

 


Strava Updateunnamed (4)

Another week of stellar results – we logged over 120 hours of training this past week.
That is a massive amount of work, especially with how hot it has been this past week. Well done everyone!

 

July 12th Weekly Update

Upcoming Workouts

Wednesday July 13th
Track Speed-work: Cancelled
We are cancelling this workout due to the weather forecast. We do like to claim that we train in all weather – but there is also member safety that we need to think of. The temperatures are supposed to be super hot with very high humidity, which is not a great combination for high intensity training.

Thursday July 14th
Open-Water Swim: 6:30-8pm in Professor’s Lake
With the warm temperatures we are expecting a record turnout of swimmers looking to dip their toes, legs, torsos, arms and heads into the refreshing water at Professor’s Lake. If you are paying by drop-in, please ensure you arrive early or stay late to complete payment.

Post-Swim Run: 8:10-8:45pm around Professor’s Lake
We might not see any record paces this week, but the temperature should be cool enough by 8pm for a loop around the lake.

Sunday July 17th
Open-Water Swim: 8-9:30am in Professor’s Lake
The swim loop is about 750m – and we are continuing with our 90 min swim times through June. How many loops will you complete this week? If you are paying by drop-in, please ensure you arrive early or stay late to complete payment.

Post-Swim Run: 9:40-10:15am around Professor’s Lake
The run loop is about 3km long – who will be sticking around after the swim to join us for a loop or two?

July 24th – Simulation Day!

Swim + Bike + Run = FUN
Our second Simulation Day event of the summer is approaching fast – will you be attending? Please let us know by completing the FMCT Sim Day Survey.

The day will start with the opening of the transition area at 7:30am, followed by the lake swim at 8am. We have the lake booked until 9:30am and you can swim as long or short as you want within that time. After you are done with your swim, make your way over to the transition area to do your bike and/or run.

There is a $5 cost for members ($8 for non-members) to participate in the Simulation Day event. (You can pay at the event, or pre-pay online on the FMCT site.) If you are paying for your swim by drop-in you will still need to pay for that drop-in session.

The benefits? A supervised transition area (your stuff won’t grow legs and walk off), and there will be drinks provided (water & gatorade) as well as snacks once you are done.
