Ah, Training weekend. That glorious long weekend that happens once a year when we all head north to the University of New England campus in Biddeford, ME for three days of swim-bike-run-eat-clinics-dance party-foam rolling.
This year, 12 of us enjoyed the pristine weather and gorgeous scenery on group rides by the coast, swimming both in the beautiful UNE pool (with hot tub!) and in the ocean for those willing to brave the chilly 58 degree water temps, and group runs along the ocean. Newer members got comfortable on their bikes with a handling clinic by Neil McInnis, and we welcomed Jason Gootman from our partners at Tri-Hard coaching for an excellent seminar on race day nutrition with guidelines to take all the guessing out of fueling during a race.
Special thanks to Ride Studio Cafe in Lexington, MA for raffle donations and the generous gift of Bonk Breakers, gels, CO2, and tubes to everyone attending.
Here are some of the photos from the weekend:
