Training:

 

Training is in full swing. People are out swimming riding and running everyday. Keep an eye on the Facebook group for updates. If you don’t see a workout that fits your schedule, feel free to post yours and invite others to join you.

 

The second Tri 101 of the season happened on August 18. CTC had a great turn out, including several new faces. The weather turned out to be a little smokey, so the run was cancelled. Still, a good time was had by all.

 

Runs:

The Saturday Beginner LSD is at 8:00 AM for the hot days of summer. It is a slower paced beginner run going for up to 60 minutes. Meet at the 5-Mile Recreation Area near the bathrooms. This run will move back to 9:00 AM when the weather starts to cool. This run is currently on hold until after Black Butte.

There is also a faster LSD run on Saturdays meeting at the 5 mile bathrooms at 8:00 AM. Dogs are welcome.

The Monday Night Run meets at One-mile at 6:00. Keep an eye on the Facebook group for more info.

CTC Track Workout:

Track workouts are held at the Chico State Track every Thursday at 5:45. The details will be posted weekly on the Facebook group, so keep an eye out for changes.

 

Cycling Workouts:

The Friday ride is great for beginners and experienced riders alike. The typical ride is about 26 miles. Start times change based on sunset. To get the start time and other ride details, contact Shawn Hughes.

 

The Sunday ride is run by Jenni Merrill. Location, route, and distance vary from week to week. Email Jenni to get the weekly details. Also keep an eye on the Facebook page, she will usually post details there as well.

 

The 50 rides meet on Wednesday in front of Rosedale Elementary. They start at the spring time change, and end near the fall time change

Two groups meet at 5:30PM. If you don’t know which group is which, ask!

The Fun 50, which is a no drop ride with a very casual feel. Expect to see speeds at 16-18MPH

The Fit 50, as the name suggest is a bit more racey. Certain sprints along the way and  more aggressive ride expect to see speeds of 18-24 MPH

At 6:00PM

The Fast 50 meets. This is the fastest ride in town, speeds are hard to predict. but expect to see an average of 24 MPH, with the occasional surge of over 30MPH.

Come on this only if you are a self supported rider, as this is race  like ride.

 

Swim Workouts:

The last official Friday swim of the season happened today. The swims will resume after Memorial Day in the spring.

 

Yoga

A group of CTC members, led by Jen Stuart and Tammie Watkins, have started a workout doing stretching and core strength at Wildwood on Tuesday evenings. The details will be posted on the facebook group.
