Weekly Training

Weekly training:

 Again, a really good showing at all our training sessions although the weather was back to the same tricks again so fingers crossed for the coming week!!!

Novice run and bike sessions:

A really good turn-up at the run session on Thursday night where the session was back to the original 1k repeat set.

The novice cycle did not take place due to the cold weather conditions but fingers crossed for this weekend. Again a reminded that the time for this has been brought back to start at 10:00am and will cover about 25k at 12-14mph.

Novice swimming:

Good attendances in our novice lane where we managed to get in about 1-1.5k over the session. The distance is these sessions will increase as time goes on so best to join in now and that will make the progress all the easier!!! If we continue to get enough numbers for this lane we will put the sets up on the site the week before as we do with the main set.


Again, these sessions are for those that are not at a level to take part in the main swim cycle or run and are open to all members and non-members. So if you know someone who may be interested then spread the word!!!

Swimming sessions: As previously mentioned all training sessions will also now be included in the training session tab on the site so can be monitored for progress. Swimming training tab
