Note: all training sessions are canceled until further notice as per our chairman’s latest update. We’ve worked on ways to provide virtual training for week 15.
From our Coach Andy
Hi Everyone, another week of lockdown completed. I hope you are all staying well.
Apologies for the lack of a group Zwift ride on Saturday but I have not been well and Zwifting was the last thing I could think about doing! Hopefully the sessions last week went well and you have kept up with the strength & conditioning swim replacement sessions! There are 2 more for you to have a go at this week – I am hoping to be able to get back on sculpting my beach body!

Reduce for beginner/sprint: 5km(3mi), 3km @ slower pace, 2km faster
Step up for 70.3 & IM: 15-20km(10-12mi) – same speed changes in the last 3km(2mi)
Please continue to follow advice on hygiene, social distancing and lockdown procedures. I reiterate messages from the last weeks:
- Continue to train, as long as you display no symptoms of any illness
- Be aware of the training stress on your body. It is not advised to increase training load or stress at this time – if in doubt, keep training but don’t overdo it
- Exercise and training are advised as a way to maintain mental health, we are used to it and rely on it as a stress relief
- Eat healthily and maintain a balanced diet, especially when training
Enjoy the sessions we are trying to set up this week. Please send me any feedback or useful links to try.
