Alcatraz Triathlon Training Plan Athlete Comments:
I wanted to thank you for the plan you provided us to prepare for the Alcatraz race. Despite arthroscopic knee surgery in November, a hip flexor injury in January and a bad case of respiratory flu in February, I made it through the race under my goal time of 3 hours. I credit the plan you put together for much of what I consider to be a very successful race. Thank you…and best of luck with the remainder of the 2013 season! -Tim Thompson
