7 reasons for taking part in a weekly coached track running session

Whatever phase of training you are in there are compelling reasons to add a track session to your training plan. We coaches see remarkable improvements in running ability and faster race times as a result of just one track session each week. Some age group triathletes think running on an athletics track is only for speedy young people but we know it will help all triathletes whatever your age or ability. Even those aiming at an Ironman distance race can benefit because a track session will make you a more efficient runner.

Slaying The Slateman

Slateman Triathlon, 22nd May 2016 This was my third visit in three years to Llanberis, Snowdonia, to compete in the Iconic Slateman Triathlon, could i make it 3 wins in a row? The swim takes place in Lake Padarn in Llanberis. I was here a month ago with Raceforce/Always Aim High helping at a pre slateman training weekend. You can read more about this here The water was beyond freezing, it was Arctic. I wasn't massively keen to be jumping back into it this weekend. Wow, what a difference 3 weeks of sunshine can do, not exactly tropical but no ice to crack.

Benefits of planning your triathlon racing season

People fall into three camps when we ask: ‘what are your physical activity goals this year?’ Camp 1: You are able to show your season’s races planned out till the off season in November Camp 2: You have one or two races entered probably a big ‘A’ race like the Outlaw Camp 3: You have some thought to entering some races Obviously I’ve structured this list to favour the best option. Unfortunately, there won’t be many people in this camp from my experience. You will have more fun if you plan your season.

Tricks Of The Turbo

"I hate the turbo, i don't know how you can sit there, in your garage sweating away for 90minutes, How do you do it?" This was a friends comment when she asked what i was up to that evening and i declared i was going to spend the evening on the computrainer trurbo in the garage. Yes, it's sweaty, yes, it is often painful, yes, it is not scenic but it is a great training tool if you are trying to get in quality bike sessions, around work, early in the morning or in the evening, when the weather isn't great. So here are my top 3 tricks for ticking off the turbo sessions

The Vampire Ride

After 16 hours in the saddle, most of us had managed to drag ourselves to the base of the last climb: Alpe d’Huez. By that stage we had ridden 156 miles, taking in Mont Ventoux (an amazing piece of geology which you just cycle up continuously for 14 miles, and go up a vertical mile in the process), three category 2 climbs, two category 1's and a couple of cat 5’s for good measure. If that means nothing to you… it was very, very hilly.
