New Rockstar Triathlete: Jeanette Harrington

Rockstar Triathlete: Jeanette Harrington

Coach Notes:

Jeanette has been a Duathlete for a few years but always wanted to add the swim and do an actual Triathlon. We started with a swim video evaluation, bike fit, and run video analysis to identify a few things to work on.

She has a busy work schedule, but she fit the necessary training, and then Ultimate Tri Camp helped her improve drastically. So proud that now she can call herself a triathlete, and we are working on getting faster before going longer in the fall. Way to go, Jeanette! You are a Rockstar Triathlete- I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?

The knowledge, experience, and techniques for fine-tuning and improving all aspects of the triathlon world.

What is your “A” race for this season?

My A races for this year were Miami Half Marathon and Clash Miami, my first triathlon ever.

Please share your BIG goals: My big goal is to complete a 70.3 in 2023

Tell me about your successes:

My biggest success has been completing my first sprint triathlon at Clash Miami. I also attended Ultimate Tri Camp a few weeks ago and improved my swim, or should I say, it made me more confident in the water to complete the swim at Clash, which I was worried about.

Learning all those breathing techniques and remaining calm in the water was huge for me, as that was my biggest concern. Also, being able to average 19 MPH on the bike was great too.

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

1. Swim – I achieved my goal by completing the Clash Miami and getting through the swim portion of this event. Being at Ultimate Tri Camp the week before really helped me accomplish this goal.

2. Bike – I still have much to improve on the bike, but I was happy that I could maintain my average for Clash Miami at 19 MPH.

3. Run – my cadence has improved tremendously. My average rpms is now in the 180s, which is way better than when I first started. However, I still have a lot of work to improve my form and get faster.

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?

What excites me most about being involved with triathlon is the camaraderie that is felt amongst the athletes that share the same passion as we cheer each other on and see how much you can push your body to accomplish all this.

What would you say to someone on the fence about joining our training program?

Do It. Everything is possible with the right coaching. The knowledge and assistance that has been given to me by Full Circle are tremendous, and I recommend the program to anyone who is serious about wanting to accomplish their goal.
