The forecast says it’s going to be a fantastic week for training this week.  With only nine weeks to the Busselton 70.3 and the end of the WA triathlon season now is the time to start putting in the hard yards.  If you’re planning a few weeks ahead go to our training calendar page for sessions beyond the end of the week.

Tuesday 1st of March: Run interval training

Saturday 5th:  Park Run time trial

Riverside Park, Woodbridge.  Arrive for an 8am (sharp) start.  A 5km flat time trial that we will repeat on a monthly basis to give you a solid workout and a good idea of your progress.  If you aren’t already a registered Park Runner make sure that you sign up, print your barcode and bring it along so that you can record an official time.

Sunday 6th: Group ride

Meet at Barberry Square (Muzz Buzz car park), Kalamunda for a ride of approximately 50km through rolling terrain.   All levels of rider and styles of bike are welcome, as usual the golden rule is that no athlete will be left on their own.  Bring cash for coffee and/or breakfast afterwards if you wish to join us.

Busselton 70.3 MDWA Team Challenge

MDWA Teams Challenge

Looking to do your first Ironman 70.3? Not quite ready to do it solo? Would like to enter as part of the team but may not be able to afford the entry fee??

Here is an opportunity to aid Muscular Dystrophy WA and be part of  our club team in the MDWA Teams Challenge at SunSmart IRONMAN 70.3 Busselton 2016!

What is the MDWA Teams Challenge?

In 2016 TWA are continuing the MDWA Teams Challenge in support of their official charity partner, Muscular Dystrophy WA.  Currently, there is no treatment or cure for muscular dystrophy.  Those with muscular dystrophy face daily challenges; their muscles waste away, they are often confined to wheelchairs and put simply are not able to enjoy the luxury of completing a triathlon.

How will the MDWA Teams Challenge work?

Triathlon WA will allocate one FREE entry to every affiliated TWA Club to compete at the SunSmart Ironman 70.3 Busselton teams event held on Sunday 1st of May 2016.

Please note these entries CAN NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED and are only available for TWA CLUB MEMBERS to enter.  The entry cannot be used to refund a team that is already entered in the event.  It needs to consist of people who have not entered.
The MDWA Teams Challenge participants will compete in a separate category for TWA affiliated clubs, with the fastest team being awarded the TWA Fastest Club Trophy.  In addition to this the team that raises the most amount of money will also receive a trophy and fantastic prize pack for their club.

So I have to fund-raise?

A minimum of $500 must be raised to be eligible for the MDWA Teams Challenge, this is barely the cost of a normal team entry.  TWA and MDWA will assist clubs in setting up a fundraising webpage via everyday hero.  TWA will also be provide Perth Hills with a fundraising guide with ideas on how to get our fundraising started.  You might be racing as a team of three but the fund-raising team consists of the whole club.  You won’t be doing this alone.

What do we need from you, our members?

Please nominate your interest to us ASAP but by Monday 7th March (latest) at petaw@perthhillstri.org.au  Also let us know which leg you are interested in doing (with a backup plan should someone already have put in dibs on your preferred leg).  First come, first served so if there are a few of you that are keen to do it together then please get on board quickly!

The sooner the team can be put together, the better so that TWA can assist us in setting up our webpage and getting started on fundraising.

Training for the week beginning 22nd of February

20160124_090610_small

 

It’s looking like a pretty moderate sort of week, weather-wise, so there are no excuses not to get outdoors and train the house down.  Most of you have at least a few weeks break before your next race so it’s time to lay the foundations for a great end to the season.  If you’re planning a few weeks ahead go to our training calendar page for sessions beyond the end of the week.

Tuesday 23rd: Run interval training

Riversid Park, Woodbridge.  Be ready to start by 6pm for a warm-up, some solid intervals to be finished by 7.  As always the session will be modified based on your individual requirements and fitness level so don’t be intimidated, just come down to see what it’s all about.

Thursday 25th: Indoor cycle training

BYO turbo trainer and bike. 6:45pm for a 7pm start. 37 Brunswick Bend, Jane Brook. Total session time around 1hr finishing with a 5-10min transition run to cool down. Limited additional trainers are available, please contact us to reserve one for you.

Sunday 28th: Group ride

Meet at Yahava Coffee car park in the Swan Valley for 25km flat loops around the valley.  As always the rule is that nobody will be left behind so bring your TT, road or mountain bike and complete as many or as few laps as you feel inclined.  The group ride is meant to be an easy session, it is not a race.  Bring cash for coffee and/or breakfast afterwards if you wish.
