Last night, I joined the Newton & Runner Duathlon Clinic at Bonifacio High Street. The event encouraged runners to start biking as a cross training option and to subsequently start joining duathlons as a new challenge.
The clinic started with a talk on duathlons by my triathlon coach, Andy Leuterio, a brief talk on bikes by owner of Dan’s Bike Shop and Specialized distributor, Joey Ramirez, and, lastly, an introduction to bike fitting by Edmund Mangaser of All Terra.
After the informative talks, the workout began. It was a—get this—bike-run-bike-run-bike session. Phew! It was tough. (Big mistake for running an 8k tempo that morning.)
There was a lot of grunting and groaning from all 30 participants, including myself. A wonderfully intense workout that left me soaked in sweat yet happy.
