The Scene
Dozens of athletes sent emails during the May, June, and July Challenge commenting how it helped them, kept them going, kept them motivated, that was the goal, now it is time to get strong and keep all that work going into August.  We are going to change up the award distribution in August with a little twist on things, we will post it this weekend.  
 
Time Trials: 
  1. 1 mile or 5k run time base test. All out
  2. 6 mile bike time trial
  3. 500m swim - if available to do
  • You have from July 1 to July 10 to complete your tests.
  • You will complete your final tests during the final 4 days of July, can be in a race as well 🙂 
  • You will want to make sure you pick a venue or course that you can use for future tests to log progress.
  • Pick a day that is not too hot, or windy to do your tests
  • If you have been spending the last months doing base mileage you might want to do a few pickups, drills, downhill run on grass to get some leg turnover or you may be disappointed or surprised with your test results.
  • Again these are all out tests so don't slow at the end give it all you have you will appreciate it at the end of June.
  • Total TIME (minutes training) accumulation - no mileage, please report in minutes, not hours and minutes, just minutes.
  • You can enter any day, the first official day is JULY 1.
  • Only applies to swimming, biking, running, paddle sports (sport specific)
  • Workout time only, for example, a 20-minute cool-down walk around the block does not count, a leisurely paddle along the shore does not count, a cool-down tool around the neighborhood with the kids on your bike does not count. And spending 90 minutes lifting weights does not count as it is not sport-specific.
  • This is your total workout time sport-specific only, yes a cool down is part of your workout but be honest about it.
  1. The time MUST be emailed on a DAILY basis only. This is the athlete's commitment to the challenge.
  2. You must send a daily email by 9:00 p.m. with your time workout totals (swim, bike, run, paddle) if you work different hours let us know.
  3. We will not accept an email with make-up days worth of workouts, if you miss a day it will be entered as a 0 time.  
  4. As we did with May, and June we will have a random official end to total minutes. We will pick a random number between 1 & 47. This will be the official end of the challenge. We do not want to create a situation where athletes are doing something crazy in the last hour's attempt to catch other athletes.
  5. We will post standings Saturday morning for the week, and Monday morning for the weekends on the Facebook page and on the website.
This is obviously being done on the honor system, be truthful in front of your peers. 
 
Awards
  • Up for grabs - we are adding a few other awards for performance as well as random numbers.
     
    Top 10 total
  •  
    TBA August prizes
  • Bonus: 
    Everyone that beats Kenny’s numbers will get a grab bag T-shirt
3D Training Camp

3-Disciplines-Training-Camp-300x270 Event

Camp 3D - Training Camps - August 15, 16 only 2 spots left.
Something we have had on the back burner for, well 22 years now. Kenny and Annmarie used to be Cross-Country and Track coach's along with teaching. So they used to host cross-country training camps that were very successful in many ways. The intention was always to bring this back and now is the perfect time. We have the perfect venue on the Paul Bunyan course, on the "quiet" side of the state of Michigan. Given the gathering limits of ten it is a really good number to host, versus the 20,30, 40 plus runners they used to host in the cross country camps. Final details and registration are coming soon but we will have camps in June and July. Some details:
  • Saturday and Sunday
  • Swimming, biking and running
  • lodging and meals provided
  • you can either come and do your own thing, as we understand everyone may be at a different level or have a different goal in mind based on all of what is going on.
  • We will have marked courses
  • Training and racing tips as well as advice and personal coaching during the weekend, keeping the number at ten will make this a great opportunity for those that need education on our incredible sport.
  • Jersey, C02, coffee mug, bag, travel mug, Swim Cap of course, guarded open water swims in Cedar Lake,

COMMENTS FROM JUNE CAMP:

The absolute best investment made in me was to register for the camp. I shared my weaknesses and now have the knowledge to turn them into strengths. The location is a serene setting. Honestly, the best are the hosts (besides being extremely knowledgable and supportive), they make you feel like family. If the thought has crossed your mind, do not hesitate a moment longer, register and enjoy the "all about you and chasing your dreams" weekend.

And a special thank you - I was not getting in the water what might I call "seaweed terror" - but with incredible support, I was able to overcome the terror. [PRICELESS]

First thank you again for camp. I focused on coming in as a blank slate and I left with an overflowing box of tools in order to bring my multi sport adventure to levels I can’t imagine yet.
Best part is that my video game loving son has shown interest in triathlons. If he starts training with me (at his level) I told him I would drop down and do the Superman super sprint right along side of him the entire way. His eyes lit up like Christmas morning!

Being brand new to triathlons. You both welcomed me in as family. I immediately felt right at home and completely comfortable asking questions and trying new things. I honestly felt like I was the only one at camp and I had your full attention and support with everything.

With the current state of affairs, this camp was a shining light for me that reignited my passion for a healthy lifestyle!

Thank you for everything you do and I optimistically look forward to racing at your events for years to come! Fingers crossed, I’m highly anticipating a 2021 camp just to see and show my progression!
===========================================
I was not sure what to expect when I registered for this camp. I just knew I wanted to increase my knowledge of the sport and gain some valuable insight from those who have been heavily involved with it for 20 plus years. The coaches worked very closely with me. I had amazing one on one time digging deep into my swim/bike/run mechanics. It was money well spent. I encourage triathletes of all levels to sign up for future camps!
