Training


Club sessions:

Turbo night: every Monday at the clubhouse (7:00 for 7:15)
Swim session: Wednesdays at 8:05 (Sportspace, Hemel Hempstead)
Plus club runs every Sunday at 9:00 from Hemel Hempstead Station (although intended as social riding, not training!)

Andrew and Graham will put out more information on his sessions at Sportspace through the Facebook group, and I we will ensure essential information is also put on the forum.

Tring and Dacorum Road Runners train Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-8 at the Jarman Park athletics track.

Triathlon Collective Facebook Group

This is still a great platform for posting information and discussion, and the format avoids information getting lost, Please use this to share you race plans, ideas and general chat.

Club duathlon event


I would like to have a meeting in the coming weeks to gauge levels of interest in staging a mini duathlon (details to go out shortly). This will clearly require a degree of volunteering and support from within the club, but there seems to be a healthy level of enthusiasm!

Club trisuits


These are available through Bob Clark on Monday nights at the clubroom. The currently available model is best suited to sprint and standard distance races, as padding is on the lighter side. Email Bob at avrilclark@aol.com to check availability of sizes.

I hope everyone found the meeting useful. Please do share any more thoughts or ideas you might have over the coming weeks.

Looking forward seeing you all around over the coming season.

Thanks,

Felix
