|Instructor Daniel Jarecke|
Finger Lakes Community College will offer a class for new and experienced triathletes in long-course triathlon, an event that combines running, cycling and swimming.
The four-week classroom course will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting Jan. 18, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the FLCC Victor Campus Center, 200 Victor Heights Parkway, off Route 251.
The course will cover physiology, proper training, nutrition and execution strategies for half-iron and ironman-distance triathlon. The course will allow participants to determine their functional threshold power, VDOT pace training zones and lactate threshold heart rate in order to train and race efficiently.
The cost is $300, which includes the Breakthrough training plan and the classroom instruction. The Breakthrough training plan is a 20-week program to increase athletes’ pace and power at threshold.
Instructor Daniel Jarecke has been racing endurance events since 2005 and is one of the area's fastest cyclists in time trial and triathlon. He is the owner of Nice Tri! Multisport Coaching and Rentals (nicetrionline.com), which provides coaching for endurance athletes and offers Zipp wheel and wetsuit rentals for road cyclists and triathletes.
