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- 19:00-20:00 Strength and Conditioning - Steventon Village Hall, OX13 6RR
Triathletes tend to focus in the sports rather than training for the sport. Adding S&C sessions to your weekly training will benefit you hugely in all three disciplines. S&C training will give you the balance to muscle differences, strengthen tendons and ligaments, tackle flexibility and reduce injuries. The session will be suitable for all from beginner to advanced, with exercises having progressive elements depending on individual proficiency.
Please bring a yoga mat or thick towel with you.
Thursday - 19:00-20:00 / 20:00-21:00hrs - Pool Swim - Abingdon White Horse Leisure Centre, OX14 3PJ
Coaches: Andy,Sorrel and Ben
This week's focus - Backstroke technique. £3 payable to coaching staff on poolside, do not pay at reception. 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.
