We’ve been putting a lot of effort into Jennifer’s swim, and it showed on Saturday! She finished ahead of other women in her age group on the swim, which is a significant improvement from this same race last year!
The bike was hilly and challenging, but had beautiful views. In fact, the views on bike course of the Olympic Distance race are exactly what prompted Jennifer to sign up for that distance (versus the Sprint).
On the run, Jennifer ran a faster pace for a 10K than she has in her last several stand-alone running races. That’s right! On fatigued legs, she ran faster than she recently has been running. What a great day she had!
Tupper Lake Tinman Triathlon - Tupper Lake, New York
Lindsey comes from a CrossFit background and has only been doing endurance-related things (such as swimming, cycling, and running) since October 2021. Not only has she put in a tremendous amount of work in order to be able to race at a 70.3-distance triathlon in this time frame, but she has navigated (and managed!) several challenges along the way.
Performance Coaching has proven to be a valuable option for her as she’s trained for triathlon. I’m incredibly proud of the work Lindsey has put in and how she has tackled each challenge head-on with wisdom and strength in pursuit of her BIG goal in July. :) Lindsey learned a lot from Tupper Lake Tinman and we are already fine-tuning things so she will be even more confident and prepared for her A-Race next month.
Bridget has been on a Custom-Built Training Plan since October 2021, which has served her well as she has navigated coming from a CrossFit background into triathlon. Bridget had a strong race and is also ready to take on her final training before her BIG goal at the end of July.
Congratulations to Lindsey and Bridget!
