    Tri Club Members,

    While our outdoor training season is winding down, the indoor options are just heating up! Our awesome sponsor Societe Indoor Cycling has designed an indoor cycling experience with you in mind! Each Wednesday evening at 7PM, members are invited to Societe’s studio to take part in a 50 minute Cycle Performance class (with free HR monitor use through the end of 2017). After 12/31, HR monitors are available for purchase. Your first ride at Societe is free, and after that, the Tri Club member rate is $12 per class (normally $26). What a deal! 

    Cycle performance is a hardcore cycling experience utilizing high energy music and state of the art technology scientifically designed to push you to your fitness limits.  With 6 different modes, 4 types of races, individual challenges, team challenges, heart rate zone challenges and your workout results emailed instantly to you at the end of class, this cycling experience elevates the traditional indoor cycling class! From week to week, workouts will focus on varied disciplines, including hill climbing, sprinting, and endurance. With your feedback, the workouts can be refined each week and made to fit your training needs!

    This is a great opportunity to not only continue your workouts throughout the winter, but also to meet up with your fellow club members for some friendly competition!

    Check out Societe! Email Erin Pons (erin.e.pons@gmail.com) with any questions.

    Join the AATC Interval Workout on Zwift from the comfort of your own pain cave!

    Thursday Evenings @ 6:30pm throughout the winter we will gather online and complete interval workouts.  It does NOT matter your ability, Zwift will keep everyone together as long as you keep pedaling.

    You will want to have your FTP setting as accurate as possible to make this workout difficult, yet possible for you to complete.  Click here for more about FTP.

    Information on joining a Zwift Event.  Click here.

    Zwift can be intimidating with all the hardware and software issues.  FEAR NOT!  It's not THAT difficult and we are in the process of scheduling a "Zwift Seminar".  Stay tuned for details.  But, if you have any Zwift questions in the mean time, hit the AATC Goole Group and ask away.

    Schedule:  The main set will consist of...

    • Jan 11   3x5 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Jan 18   3x6 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Jan 25   4x5 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Feb 1     2x10 Min High Zone 3 Intervals    90 Min Ride
    • Feb 8     4x6 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      90 Min Ride

    Race Information From Ironman.com

    In the bucolic college town of Madison, Wisconsin visitors can enjoy walks through the downtown area and the University of Wisconsin campus. State Street is a bustling small-town destination, providing a range of restaurants, shops, and galleries. The Madison Saturday farmer's market gives athletes and their supporters yet another way to enjoy this rural location with big-city culture. 

    The race will grace the shores along iconic Olin Park in beautiful Madison. Athletes will start with a 1.2 mile swim in the historic waters of Lake Monona shared by IRONMAN Wisconsin, then bike 56 miles among the endless rolling hills of Dane County, south of Madison. Finally, a picturesque 13.1 mile run along the shores of Lake Monona will bring athletes home to the finish line.

    The 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Wisconsin will offer 30 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
