Training for the week beginning 21st of March

Turbo training session

Turbo training session

Another week closer to the showpiece of the WA triathlon season and another couple of races done and dusted.  Congratulations to all those who competed, completed or just participated at both the Fremantle Tri and Karri Valley over the weekend.  If Busselton 70.3 is your next ‘A’ race then now is the time to be finalising your race nutrition, any changes in bike setup and to begin thinking about your race plan.  Recent testing, racing or training results should be providing a good guide as to what you can achieve on the 1st of May and the next four weeks is the perfect time to allocate to training specifically for the race you want to have.  Race day will bring what it brings, you just need to be prepared to make the most of it.

Tuesday the 22nd

Run intervals are at Riverside Park, Woodbridge again.  The weather is cooling off a little and it’s getting dark earlier so make sure you are there before 6pm for an on-time start.  There is a fantastic playground for the kids and interval training is always more fun with friends.  All abilities will be catered for so get down there and get it done.

Thursday the 24th

Our stationary bike brick session for the week.  BYO turbo trainer and bike, limited additional trainers are available please contact us to reserve one for you.  Arrive by 6:45pm for a 7pm start at 37 Brunswick Bend, Jane Brook. Total session time around 1hr finishing with a 5-10min transition run to get the legs used to running off the bike in the most efficient manner.  As with all of our rides nobody gets dropped!

Friday the 25th (Good Friday)

An informal ride to Mandurah (return) is planned by some of our members with all welcome to join.  A great opportunity to spend some quality time down on the aero-bars in preparation for more of the same at Busso.  For further details and to join the discussion head over to our Facebook discussion group, if you’re not already a member then join.

Sunday the 27th (Easter Sunday)

The big bunny has visited so come and pre-burn some energy to give yourself a couple of days of guilt-free chocolate gorging, I mean carb replenishment.  Starting at Barberry Square (Muzz Buzz car park) in Kalamunda at 7am we will head off for a ride through the hills with a route selected on the day to cater for every rider that shows up.  You will not slow others down.  You will not be forced to ride yourself into the ground to keep up.  Faster riders will loop back to join slower ones so that EVERYBODY gets a workout appropriate to their needs.
