Welcome to this weeks newsletter - quite a few dates for the diary this week, and a note on swimming, so get your calendars, diary apps or pen and paper at the ready!
It's also not too late to enter the Wantage Triathlon (pool based sprint distance) this weekend, if you were wondering what else to do this season, here's the perfect race!
Please feel free to send any content you would like adding, or suggestions for future editions to email@example.com and we will include it in the next update.
Monday - 19.00 - Swim/Run Training - Berinsfield Lake, Berinsfield
Whilst this is not a coached session, it will help develop your swimming and running endurance, technique and confidence. There is no standard route but the idea is to swim in groups, practice a bit of transition skills and then run the off road route around the lake. Do as little or as much as you would like and no-one gets left behind.
Tuesday - 19:30hrs - Indoor Spin - Park Club Gym, Milton, OX14 4RS Meet in the reception area 5 minutes before.
Always a fun session, using indoor spin bikes. Based to music this popular class is a great way to improve your cycling fitness without having to go out in the cold and wet. The class is as hard as you want to make it as the bikes have adjustable resistance that you can set to your own required effort level. Be sure to bring a big drink and a towel. The pedals on the bikes are suitable for Trainers or they are compatible with Shimano SPD system (mountain bike cleat).
No formal swimming this week - we will be back to the WHITE HORSE TENNIS and LEISURE CENTRE next week with our usual 1900-2000 and 2000-2100 sessions.
Please keep your eye on Facebook for an informal swim session in the river.
