Being a member of the Phoenix Training Group is a great way to participate in structured group workouts while building camaraderie and accountability to a community of athletes who offer support and encouragement.
The PFT training group is focused on triathlon and running events. All are welcome throughout the week as we plan workouts and group practices to accommodate all paces. Generally we structure and periodize the workouts around several key group events such as the Carmel Full and Half Marathons in April, Spring/Summer Sprint and Olympic triathlons, including this year’s Ironman Tri Club 70.3 Nationals in Geneva, NY at Musselman 70.3 in July , USAT Sprint and Olympic Nationals in August and, the Monumental Full and Half Marathon in November.
We lead most of our workouts from the Broad Ripple area. Runs are scheduled on Tues/Thurs evenings and Saturday mornings. In the warmer months cycling practices are scheduled on Wednesday nights, Friday noon and Sunday mornings. Weekday runs are typically tempo, hill repeat or interval focused. On most Saturdays we host a run that is aerobic base building or on trails in the Winter months, progressing in distance as our athletes approach the Spring long distance race goals. In the Summer months the long run is 75-90 minutes, progressing to longer as we approach Monumental. Wednesday rides are either Bike/Run brick for triathletes/duathletes or technique focused (gear selection on hills, cornering practice, sprinting technique, etc). Sunday’s ride is 30-50 miles at group pace with sections of higher intensity and opportunities for regrouping. Bike practices are hosted May-October as weather permits.
