    On Tuesday May 7th Nigel Gray held a clinic on 'Racing Short and Fast', focusing on training strategies and race tips specifically for sprint and olympic distance triathlons. 

    We had a great turnout at Enduro Sport and raffled away a few prizes, including a free entry to the 2013 Toronto Triathlon Festival, of which we are a Community Sponsor!

    "I did enjoy it, Nigel is a crazy knowledgeable speaker, and yes my expectations were met. The breakdown of the training program/plan was helpful (i.e that he gaves us examples of various options for tempo, interval & brick work) & the timing of the talk was good too (early enough so that you can make adjustments to training, and yet not TOO early so that you sort of forget the key messages)"

    "I really enjoyed it! As someone who just started in the sport last year, this is the type session that I could have really used then. I was looking for a "sprint 101" overview and believe the session provided that. It was structured in a way that a newbie wasn't lost and a more seasoned person could learn or ask more detailed questions.
        The speaker presents well and is able to clearly articulate the concepts for his audience. Would love to hear more of his race day strategies and lessons learned.
        As a new member, I also appreciated the chance to meet others at the social afterwards."

    On Sunday we had our annual membership drive and added our Newbie night talk to the mix.  We had most of our sponsors in attendance including representatives from NRG, EnduroSport, HEAL, Whistler and Cliff Bar.  We had a lot of fun and met some new triathletes!
    Here's what one participant said:
    "I really enjoyed sunday's tri- intro and meet and greet. This is my second year of triathalon and I really appreciate all of the events that TTC has put in place for members. Tonight, I am off to bike maintenance @ EnduroSport"

    This past Saturday, John Hughes led a loyal contingent of cyclists on a winter ride in the city, keeping the tradition of ending at a cafe for a post ride warmup. Hopefully by next month these will no longer be classified as "winter rides". Thanks John for your efforts in organizing!

    On February 21st our shop sponsor Enduro Sport held a 'Bike Fit & Purchase' clinic for our members to offer advice on bike fit, answer questions, and help explain the various bikes, components, etc. that are available to triathletes. There is a wealth of information and new product offerings in the triathlon industry which can be overwhelming for both new and experienced triathletes alike when trying to decide on what gear to buy, so having our knowledgeable friends from Enduro Sport there to help was greatly appreciated by our members, as was the discount TTC gets on clinic nights!

    "The folks knew what they were talking about and they helped get me sorted with some stuff I needed!"

    Thanks to Enduro Sport for hosting a great clinic! 

    For anyone who is interested in getting more hands on bike maintenance skills (e.g. fixing flats, changing components, general upkeep), Enduro Sport will be running a Hands on Bike Prep & Maintenance clinic beginning in April which will be held over 4 weeks.

    On Sunday, Feb 10th our swim coach Kyle Resnick and guest coach Tim Hauraney held a 3-hour Swim Stroke Improvement Clinic for TTC members. 

    The clinic included an in-class instructional session as well as time in the pool for technical practice and feedback. 

    Member Reviews:

    "I very much enjoyed the camp. The videotaping before and after analysis with the coaches was very useful tool."

    "Loved it. The coaches were knowledgeable and I had one of the best swims I have had all year."

    "Recording of stroke and personal feedback from coach Kyle Resnick, specific drills to work on to improve stroke, powerpoint at beginning was great overview and answered many questions I had."

    January 27th

    Dr. Greg Wells put on an excellent talk tonight on 'Recovery, Regeneration, and Peak Performance.' It was very well attended by around 30 TTC members in attendance. 

    Wells took us through the various stages of a workout and covered topics such as hydration and nutrition, stretching, cool-down and exercise, inflammation, brain activity and sleep. He did a great job explaining the science behind training and recovery, while also making sure to balance it out with practical info we could all apply to our training.

    A copy of his handouts has been requested and will be posted in the Members Area of our site shortly.

    Thanks to Dr. Greg Wells for inspiring many of us through his very insightful clinic and Absolute Endurance for graciously hosting us!

    Nigel Gray, club coach and Head Coach of NRG Performance Training held a Winter Training Clinic at Enduro Sport on January 24th.

    The Winter Training Clinic was a great followup to Nigel's 'Off-season Training Clinic'. As the off-season comes to an end it is time to start focusing on building your base for the upcoming season. In his talk, Nigel pointed out the key DOs and DONTs for the winter to maximize your training to increase performance in the months to come.

    In case you missed it, you can find Nigel's slideshow from the clinic here under 'Clinic and Seminar Notes' in our Members Area (must be logged in).

    Reviews from TTC members who attended the event:

    (1) "I thoroughly enjoyed the clinic and found that the material covered was useful, but also that a lot of the accompanying discussion (questions and answers) was very useful as additional information. I think the timing of the clinic (early in the New Year) was very appropriate as the talk left me feeling motivated to start pushing more in my training and get out of the low-intensity rut I've been in since the fall.
    I can't think of any particular improvements, I think it was already a great clinic. I'm really impressed with the frequency and types of clinics being held recently and coming up. They are very interesting and applicable topics, and the speakers have all been good. Kudos to whoever is arranging these!"

    (2) "First of all, it's great to get the perspective of a pro, and a coach at that, can't go wrong with that. But the info itself was really detailed and practical. I was worried that it would be too complicated, but Nigel made it all easy to understand, even all the numbers. I liked his emphasis on feeling good in what you're doing, not just mechanically following an unchangeable master plan. Obviously he's seen that play out for the athletes under his care, so I trust his opinion.
    There were a few new perspectives in there for me, like cycling of recovery periods or how we should time our weaker sports before the stronger ones to do them properly without being tired. I was just really glad that this wasn't "b.s." but really interesting and focused ideas on how to organize your training life.
    The talk was just long enough, and we had plenty of time to ask questions. Overall A+. :D"
