Want to feature in this round-up? Want to get some well deserved credit? Let me know where you are racing! The racing calendar is now operational so to populate it: end me on firstname.lastname@example.org any (race-related) event that you will be taking part in this year or you would like to add to the calendar? Please provide name of event, date of event, type of event (run, swim, cycle, triathlon?) and website of event. I will then upload it and you can RSVP to the event on the actual page. That way, people will know you are going (who, apart from Ian The Machine Baker, doesn’t love company?) and you are much more likely to have your name in the round up!
Ok, now onto this week: (Adapted) Quote of the weekend: Watopia doesn’t build character – Want to be a real triathlete? Go outside!
Looks like I was the only FOTer racing this weekend. I took part in Race 2 of the G3 series, starting in Newlands Corner. A testing, muddy, cold but all round wonderful 10k cross country raced – scraped into the top 5. Chuffed with that. Don’t forget we have our club XC races on 10th Feb, followed by curry night.
Meanwhile some excellent training was being done by FOTers all over the world – with a rather lovely picture from Nicola Busca in Bermuda (interviewing/stalking Flora Duffy). Want to know how to make the best of your season? Then make sure to rock up to the upcoming training talks. Full details here:
- Swim a Better Front Crawl from our club coaches
- How To Train for Triathlon from our club coaches (plus a little Membership Info)
- Nutrition Talk from Will Girling, Professional Sports Nutritionist
- Injury Prevention from Julia Rowe-May
Love to all x
