Speaker: The Center for Integrated Manual Therapies
Please join us on April 6th for a discussion and hands-on demonstration of some evaluation techniques that Karen and her team commonly use to find dysfunctions that are not painful, but can increase the risk of injury.
Karen and her team will demonstrate manual therapy techniques that can help correct the dysfunctions and decrease injury risk, home exercises that can be done to help prevent the dysfunctions from coming back. and finally a discussion of some common injuries/pain that they can help with when they do occur. As we enter into the full-swing of the training season you won't want to miss this preparatory discussion.

Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 9:30 am at the Gary J. Arthur Community Center At Glenwood, 2400 Route 97, Cooksville, MD 21723
Join the Mid Maryland Triathlon Club (MMTC) for a morning of training and an afternoon of yummy food and nutrition education.
Start your morning off right by selecting from one of three different group rides (A, B, and C) originating from the Gary J. Arthur Community Center At Glenwood, 2400 Route 97, Cooksville, MD 21723 (near Western Regional Park).
Cost: Members $20.00, Non-members $35.00.
Available Spots: Limited to 40 people
Start Time: Wheels down at 9:30 AM. This will allow you to get in a run after the ride as well. Shower facilities are available at the center.
Lunch: Served from 12:00 – 12:30 PM
Nutrition Seminar: Brian Shea begins at 1:00 PM sharp and runs approximately 2 hours depending upon the length of the Q and A portion of the seminar.
We will have 3 Rider Led Groups to choose from. How do you decide what group to choose? Here is a suggested guide, but please remember this will all be based by the majority of the group and the ride leader:
- Group A: Average speed 16+ mph - average speed on flats greater than 20 mph, ride leader will provide cue sheets and this will be a competitive environment over demanding terrain. Ride leader does NOT regroup as this is NOT a no-drop ride. This is 2 loops for a total mileage of 26.5 miles.
- Group B: Average speed 14 – 16 mph – average speed on flats greater than 17 mph, ride leader will provide cue sheets for the demanding terrain. Ride leaders will regroup as necessary as this is a no drop ride. This is a 2 or 1 loop ride (26.5/13.3 miles).
- Group C:Average speed less than 14 mph – average speed on flats 15 mph, ride leader provides an encouraging and nurturing environment over demanding terrain. Great for beginners. Ride leaders will regroup as this is a no drop ride. This is a 1 loop ride (13.3 miles).
Please note that this event is not a bric-n-pic and is most appropriate for our over 18 year old members. If you wish to attend the nutrition session with your child(ren), there is a $5 per child fee for the food.
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming all of our MMTC families at our next bric-n-pic later this Spring.
Princeton Bike Rides are a great way to learn our local tri courses, meet training partners,
or support new triathletes by volunteering as a ride leader. Princeton provides cue sheets
and SAG support on Sunday mornings. → Training
