DMC Preview Review.

Despite the snow and the cold outside it is definitely an exciting time to be a multisport athlete in Bend.

A special thank you to everyone that came out last night to learn about and become part of the Deschutes Multisport Club. I am so excited about all of our new members and am really looking forward to DMC's very first official training session coming up quickly: A tri specific swim at Juniper Swim & Fitness with Coach Bob at 6:15 on Tuesday January 4th!

Some very exciting announcements from last night:
This first training session on Jan 4th will initiate DMC's regular weekly trainings;
  • Every Tuesday, 6:15: Swimming @ Juniper Swim & Fitness with Coach Bob.
  • Every Wednesday, 6:00: Group Run @ Fleet Feet Bend.
  • Every Thursday PM: Bike Training (Spin or Trainers, location TBA).
  • Every Saturday AM: Group Run or Block Session, location TBA.
Scheduled monthly speakers coming up for DMC members only;
  • January, Coach Bob Bruce from Central Oregon Masters Aquatic presents Swimming as a Multisports Athletes.

Coach Bob is the head coach for COMA and a level 5 certified coach with 36-years of coaching experience novice, age-group, high school and masters levels. Bob is also earning his certification in Triathlon Specific Training and will be talking about swimming technique and training for multisport specific athletes.

  • February, Cherie Touchette from Juniper Swim & Fitness presents an interactive lesson on core strength for endurance athletes.
  • March, Nutritionist on effective fueling for Triathletes during competition and training.

Although I am not personally a multisport athlete I can't wait to run and swim (and maybe bike if I can save up my pennies) and make new friends and training partners with all our members. I can't wait to build up a community of all ages and abilities that is supportive and positive and active.

If you are as anxious to get involved and started as I am please drop in the shop to talk with Michelle, Scott or myself about what you are looking for in your training and how we can help you to achieve a new personal record, meet new training partners, find resources, be a mentor and a become part of a great multisport community.
