Welcome to this weeks newsletter!
Heads up gang! You've only got 7 weeks to dust off your party frocks and suits and get your best dance moves ready for the 2017 AVTC Christmas extravaganza...More details to follow shortly.
There will be also the 2017 AVTC Club Awards - including Coaches awards and the Member's Member award. Please email your nomination for Member's Member and a brief reason as to why you think they are amazeballs to Coach Sorrel by Tuesday 24th October. You can vote for someone for any reason!
The Committee meet regularly to discuss ways in which we can provide an even better membership for club members; if you have any suggestions, comments, concerns or words of praise then please let us know at the email address below!
If you would like to make some contributions to the letter, then please feel free to send any content you would like adding, or suggestions for future editions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include it in the next update.
Charity Archery Taster Session As announced after the AGM this year we are having a club charity which is MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT.
We are holding an Archery taster session to raise some money for them. If you are interested and what to come please speak to Hannah, Kate or Wendy.
Bring a friend for free
Got a friend who just needs a little nudge to come along to training? Heard someone talking about entering a triathlon but you know they could do with some training buddies? Bring them along to any of our sessions to try. We're more than happy for people to come along and try a couple of sessions before they decide to join, so forward this email onto them and let's encourage more people into the world of triathlon :)
Did you know we had a club group on Strava? By joining the group, you enter the leaderboard as to who is completed what hours of training that week - don't worry, your privacy settings will determine what everyone can see, but the Strava group totals are uploaded to our website so people can see how much we are all training.
Don't be fooled though, the person with the most training hours doesn't necessarily equate to the person who wins everything! Join the team Strava today.
This week's training
Monday - 19.00 - Run Social - Tilsley Park
Please meet at reception.
**new shorter routes are available for those people who want to run for less than 5km, so if you're wanting to get back into running after a break, come along!**
Whilst this is not a coached session, it will help develop your running endurance - we take a 10km (ish) route around Abingdon (shorter routes are available, 5km and 7km) and run in ability groups. No-one will be left behind and there is ALWAYS someone to run with. A great way to keep your running up AND have a mini social at the same time. Win Win Tuesday 17th - 19:45-8:45hrs - Indoor Spin with coach Sorrel, Park Club Gym, Milton, OX14 4RS Meet in the reception area 5 minutes before and bring a big drink and a towel.
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. The pedals on the bikes are suitable for trainers or they are compatible with Shimano SPD system (mountain bike cleat).
Thursday - 19:00-20:00 / 20:00-21:00hrs - Pool Swim - Abingdon White Horse Leisure Centre, OX14 3PJ
£3 payable to coaching staff on poolside (do not pay at reception).
This is the 4th week with a core/torso focus. Please come along to either the session at 7pm or 8pm, whichever suits you better for a structured swim session that will improve your fitness and technique. If you have them bring along your fins, hand paddles etc. and a drink.
