Heat Training, Hydration, and Electrolytes

Join us at our monthly meeting! Come for happy hour at 6pm to meet and mingle with other CTCers, followed by a 1-hour clinic starting at 7 pm. 

This month's topic is Heat Training, Hydration, and Electrolytes. Our speaker will be TriHarder multisport coach and former two-time CTC president, Dr. Matt Pahnke! Matt will discuss both the theory behind hydration needs in triathletes and how to build a personalized hydration strategy. Some of the key topics will include: heat acclimatization, fluid and sodium supplementation, hydration problems, and building a hydration strategy in training and racing. Matt focused on fluid and sodium balance in athletes for his PhD in exercise physiology, and conducted research at the Hawaii Ironman. He is also a USAT level 2 coach and has been certified since 2001! 

We'll have free beer from Goose Island, new & renewing members can pick up your CTC member gifts during the 6-7pm happy hour. We also sometimes have a raffle after the talk, so make sure you stay for the end!

Thank you to our Sponsors!
