Weekly Newsletter/Weekend Ride

Hi All,
My apologies to Dave Pietrangelo for not including his great result last week at the Hoboken Pump and Run.  He was able to bench 145 pounds 26 times then take off for a 5k finishing in 4th place overall!  This past weekend we had some solid results at the Lincoln Tunnel 5k.  Derek Barnes in 19:42, Joe Giattino in 20:07 and Allison Twarowski in 24:25.  At the XTerra Jersey Devil Tri, Scott Duprex took 9th overall and Rich Bean took third in his age group.  Finally, congrats to Steve Su and Matt Mustich for taking 10th and 20th overall at the West Point Duathlon!
This weekend Jen Finotti will be leading a group ride on Saturday leaving the 14th Ferry at 7:00 AM.  On Sunday Rich Bean will be leading the group ride leaving the 14th St Ferry at 7:30 AM.
There is also a group that will be riding the Escape from Palisades Half Marathon on Sunday.  They are going to leave from the 14th St Ferry at 7:15 AM sharp so get there a few minutes early if you want to join them.  There is a bike storage at the race, so take advantage of getting in a nice brick without having to worry about your bike getting stolen.  Because of this race the park road will be closed to all bikes and cars from 9AM to Noon so avoid it.
Happy Training,

Ride, Track and Swim Update

Swimming Hours Change

Stevens has moved to the spring/summer swimming schedule with Masters now on Monday/Wed/Fri at 6am (doors usually open 550am) and Tues and Thurs at 8pm.

Track Now Tuesdays

For those that may have missed the message due to the lack of update here, track workouts have now moved to Tuesday mornings, departing 9th and Park at 6am for a 6:15am start.  Workouts are posted to the group and here moving forward.

Thursday Morning Ride

Andre will be riding Thursday (4/5) morning at 5:40am for those that want to join.  He plans on leading a few hill repeats (not mandatory to complete).  As of Tuesday morning, Thursday is predicted to be 45F, 12mph wind and 42% humidity.

Stevens Pool Hours Week of March 12

The pool will be closed this weekend for the start of Spring Break.  Because of building scheduling during Spring Break, I had to change around the schedule.  It is as follows:

Saturday March 10th – Pool Closed
Sunday March 11th – Pool Closed
Monday March 12th – 7:30PM-8:30PM
Tuesday March 13th – 6:00AM-7:30AM
Wednesday March 14th – 7:30PM-8:30PM
Thursday March 15th – 6:00AM-7:30AM
Friday March 16th – 6:00AM-7:30AM
Saturday March 17th – Pool Closed
Sunday March 18th – Pool Open Noon-8PM

Since the pool is closed this weekend, you can swim this evening during lap swim.

We will also be changing the practice schedule on April 1st.  We will switch to Monday/Wednesday/Friday 6AM-7:30AM; and Tuesday/Thursday 8PM-9PM.

Triathlon Swim Clinic

Hi All,

I forgot to include in the newsletter that Brad Thornton (Hoboken Masters Head Coach) will be offering a Triathlon swim basics class in July. The dates are the following: July 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28. The class will max out at 5 people and will be first come first serve. For all GC Tri members, it will be only $150 which includes a lap swim membership to the pool for the month. This a $50 discount from the initial price. You can use this class to develop an efficient freestyle for triathlons or open water swims. This is not a ‘learn to swim’ class (must be able to swim in a 25 yard pool), but rather a ‘learn to swim correctly’ class. If you are interested, head over to www.hobokenmasters.com and email Brad for more details.
