The Positive Crusade!!


THE POSITIVE CRUSADE!
If you were in one of my spinning or yoga classes this week, you have probably heard about my latest crusade! Yes, my no added sugar crusade is still on but now I have challenged myself and some of you and your families to join the Positive Crusade!

STOP COMPLAINING!
After reading the article in the Globe and Mail last week on "How Complaining Rewires Your Brain for Negativity", I learned about how the same way we create compensation patterns for injuries we get rewired for complaining and our life can become more negative. If you have someone in your family who complains a lot that complaining can be like second hand smoke and before you know the whole family is rewired....yikes!!

THE ONE WEEK CHALLENGE
So, I challenged myself and family to see if I can I actually get through a whole week without complaining once. I thought yeah, no problem, I kicked sugar this will be easy compared to that. Well, so far this has been more difficult than I thought. What the challenge has done, is made me more aware of how much complaining I do and has made me re-think how I speak. After sharing the idea of positivity in the Spin on Saturday, Anna Rumin kindly forwarded me the article from the Guardian about a writer who tried to go 21 days without a complaint and it took him 6 months! During his challenge he moved an elastic from one wrist to the other every time he complained so he was more aware. 

STAY POSITIVE ON RACE DAY
How does staying positive affect our sports? When we arrive at a race in the pouring rain, we can complain about it or be positive about it and have an awesome day. When things start going sideways in a race, we can go on a negative downward spiral or be prepared with positive thoughts and get to the finish line smiling.
Are you up for the challenge?

Team Triumph Saturday Morning Program

 

Sadly those hot and sunny cycling days are over. Time to come in from the rain. BUT.....We are EXCITED to announce that Team Triumph will be adding a Saturday Triumph Program!! 

STARTS: SATURDAY, NOV 19TH 
10:15-11:45AM 
OTTAWA ATHLETIC CLUB
non members welcome 

Discover what all the excitement is about!!! 

We will be offering our popular Spin/Run/Strength Program on Saturdays at 10:15am! Join coach Julia and her team for a periodized program that develops your endurance, power and speed over the Winter months. Each class builds on the last using your personal training zones. 

You will learn to feel what training zone you are in so you know when to push and when to hold back when you go outdoors. Once the program has commenced, strength training can be done before or after the 10:15am spin. Need to put more time in on the bike? Feel free to stay more than the hour and up your distance. Then jump off the bike and go for a run on one of our many treadmills or on the running track. 

BE EMPOWERED!! 
Team Triumph's Spin, Run and Strength program is geared towards triathletes, cyclists or members who just want to train in a fun atmosphere with great music and friends! Each month is carefully planned. Peak in time for the bike touring, time trialing and triathlon season. 

When you are done your workout enjoy a hot shower, sauna, steam, hot tub and relaaaaax!

Tell all your fellow cycling buddies! 

Registration is NOW open here!
