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 have 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. Check it out! But don't be fooled though, the person with the most training hours doesn't necessarily equate to the person who wins everything...!
This week's training
Monday - 7pm - Run Social - Tilsley Park
Please meet at reception.
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 - 7pm- Run intervals - Milton Park Stores, OX14 4RS
Coach: Wendy Intervals are a very effective way of improving your run speed, this is a fun session using areas of the park for a run session that is suitable for all abilities. Bring along a drink and dress appropriately for the weather.
Thursday - Pool Swim -6:50-8:00pm and 7:50-9:00pm - White Horse Leisure Centre, Abingdon

£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.
