TriHarman-Norfolk Open Water Swimming 2019

P1020582

TriHarman-Norfolk looks forward to a very successful season running the Open Water Swimming  at the Mike Thurston Water Activities Centre.  

It is held at a beautiful unspoilt fresh water lake and is clean and well kept, ideal for training.  The results of our water testing have confirmed the excellent water quality making it a great place to swim and train.  As this is an existing watersport venue it benefits from changing facilities with hot showers and plenty of car parking.

The swims are each Wednesday 6 to 8pm (last into water 7.30) through to mid September.

North Norfolk Wheelers Evening 10 Time Trials

imagesMany of our members have taken advantage of the North Norfolk Wheelers Tuesday evening time trials as a cheap fun race and some intensity bike training.

The new season has started and our riders are already going well.

Details of the time trials can be found on the North Norfolk Wheelers website here.

A big thank you to the North Norfolk Wheelers for their warm welcome and helpful advice and guidance through the season.

We are pleased to say our training has been more popular than ever this year.  The course is full and we look forward to meeting all our swimmers on 11th May.

Mark and Teresa have been running open water swim training courses each spring for more than ten years and introduced many new open water swimmers and triathletes to the sport.

We will be running our next course on 11th and 12th May, places are restricted to ensure you get the best coaching experience and it is filling up already.  If you are interested contact us to secure your place.

As the season draws to an end, you may be celebrating a summer of success or wondering why all that training has not provided the race performances you expected.  This is the time to sit down with a coach and discuss what you need to do to improve that race day performance in 2019.

You cannot escape the truth that winter training builds the foundations for your summer performance.
