Akron, Ohio – October 30, 2005D3 Multisport and BeginnerTriathlete.com have combined forces to bring high quality training programs to athletes of all abilities, especially new and beginner triathletes. Beginner Triathlete is providing the training log and system for athletes to log their data while D3 Multisport is providing programs for all distances and abilities. For as little as $65 for six months (limited time only), you can download a detailed program from BeginnerTriathlete.com into your on-line training journal and then access the member forum where the coaches from D3 Multisport, Inc. will be there to provide help and on-line training support. Here are some of the quotes from some of the athletes who utilized this service last season:
“Using the 16-Week Olympic training plan, and the unique-to-me information provided by Mike on the Training Support Forum, I was able to improve my sprint triathlon time by over 15 minutes, improving my run alone by over 7 minutes. I moved from the back of the back, to the middle of the pack over 3 months. Without the training plan, and especially the support of Mike, I would have been far less effective in my training, and I do not think I would have seen such vast improvement. Having these resources available to me has made my first season of triathlon a very successful one. I will be doing my first Olympic distance race in April, and, with Mike's help, I plan on being competitive and finishing strong.” - Jean R
“I just completed my second season of triathlon. I competed in two Olympic distance races and went from finishing 18 of 24 in my age group to finishing 8 of 24 in my age group. I also cut 25 minutes off my finishing time. What made the difference between my performance in these two races was the training plan created by and the online training support on BT.com from Mike Ricci. I had dramatic increases in my cycling fitness, my overall endurance and most importantly, in my overall confidence level. I felt great going into my second race-there was no question in my mind I was going to PR in a big way. The Oly race plan he gave me worked beautifully. I posted my fastest avg bike speed for any race including Sprints and had plenty left for the 10k. I continuously passed people during the second 5k. Following Mike's training plan and advice enabled me to increase my overall fitness, hone my technique and end my season on a positive note. I'll definitely be utilizing his expertise next year.” - Mike M
