Winner of the 2011 Salem Spring Triathlon, Heath Thurston will be hosting an open water Swim Clinic at the Pleasent Grove Res. Heath is an expert multisport athlete. While he excels in all the disciplines of triathlon he will be the first to admit that “THE SWIM” is his strong point. Almost always the first one out of the water Heath has perfected the discipline of open water competition. On Tuesday night Heath will review the swim course, open water techniques and race day strategies. Bring your wetsuit and goggles, its your chance to have your stroke analyzed by a Pro. You do not want to miss it! For those who attend the clinic they may pick up their race packets afterwards. You may also pick up your race packet for the UTAH HALF IRONMAN at SBR in Orem on Thursday, Friday night from 6-8pm or on Saturday race morning before 6AM.
When asked what he does Heath responded “I train as a Professional Triathlete myself then I coach other athletes as well, mostly in the swim. My wife and I also have a corporate wellness program that we do for businesses in the [Utah] valley. I love doing Triathlons and coaching other people to see their potential in the sport and get them to have confidence in swimming biking and running to do there first Tri.
We are happy to report that Winder Farms will be at the swim clinic to offer a chocolate milk recovery drink after your swim workout. Furthermore a special offer for the Utah Half Ironman participants only. You are going to love it!
