Rockstar Triathlete Terri Camejo
Coaches Notes: Terri came to me as a person who wanted to compete only in Duathlon. She said she would never be a swimmer; that lasted about 3 months. She has done so much work in the water, coming from bubbles and floating to now getting out in the front of the pack, I could not be more proud!
Her cycling was always a strength and now with a power meter she continues to get strong. Continuing to strengthen her feet and ankles to handle the run has allowed her endurance to get better. I am super excited for her to go long after a few years of getting faster and stronger.
Can’t wait to see you cross the IM finish line Terri, you got this!
Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? The coaches are excellent, always encouraging and supportive of my triathlon goals. I joined FCC at the beginning of 2017 and have come a long way from not knowing how to swim to competing in multiple triathlons.
What is your “A” race for this season? My “A” race this year is Augusta 70.3 with the intent of completing the race in 6 hours more or less.
Please share your BIG goals: My Big goal is to complete a Full Ironman next year.
Tell me about your successes so far: Gaining more and more confidence in the swim portion of my races has been by far my greatest accomplishment. With Erinne’s support, I have learned to overcome my fear of the water as I swim and now, I am able to relax and not be so anxious before or during the swim portion.
What were some of your biggest Improvements in performance for the each of the following? Swim: Bike: Run: Nutrition/Health: Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved:
Learning how to swim in the open water around a crowd of swimmers with waves and currents has been by far my greatest improvement. It is not enough to be prepared mentally, it takes hours of practice and patience to learn how to swim and be prepared for unexpected conditions.
FCC has helped me tremendously, for I was one of the last ones out of the water for my age group for a long time and just recently I set a personal record. In TriMiami, I was 3rd in the swim for my age group (first time ever) and in Trilogy 1; I was 2nd in the swim. Cycling has always been my favorite but even in this area I have learned how to pace myself better. As for the run, this area continues to be one that needs attention since I suffer from Tendonitis and at times it hurts during the run portion. Even in this area I continue to learn from FCC coaches.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
1. Learning how to listen to my body and pushing when I know I can do more as well as taking it easier when I am tired. This is key to preventing injury.
2. Learning how to make better choices with my nutrition before, during and after a workout.
3. The support and encouragement of family and FCC teammates are the greatest impact in helping me continue to exercise and participate in this amazing sport.
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
The energy and exciment you get from teammates and coaches is wonderful. Also, to see so many people all ages and sizes participating in triathlons.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
I am always encouraging people to start an active lifestyle by joining a training program that helps you stay motivated and helps you with your individual goals.
