      • Tri Coach Tuesday: Layering for Winter Running

        Submitted by 303Triathlon on January 12th, 2016

        For many of us, running on the treadmill during the winter is a gloomy prospect.

        USA Triathlon Coach of the Year Mike Ricci, founder and head coach for D3 Multisport has some important tips on dressing properly for winter training.

        Winter training can be rough going if you don’t have the proper gear or know how to layer your clothes.

        There’s an old saying that says, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear.” And to some degree, that makes sense to us endurance athletes. There are times that you just have to get your workouts in, no matter what the weather is doing, and being prepared with your gear will help ensure a quality training session.

          When I walked into the shop, there was a guy on one of the computrainers completely focused on the task at hand. Nic Ponsor, the owner of Criterium, had set up a time trial challenge that was about 3 miles in length.

          The fastest male and female throughout the weekend would take home some prizes. That person on the computrainer was Andy, and when he finished, he had to date the fastest time (though he wasn’t in the running for the prizes.) Read more
