Sunday 2nd December

We will be running the first of our training duathlons starting 9am on Sunday 11th November.  They will be the same format as previous years, a 1 ½ mile run on the cliffs, 6 mile road bike ride and a second run as the first.  It is not a race, just a fast training session to practice your transitions.  You can do all or any part of the session.  It is going to be cold, wear appropriate clothes for the conditions. There is no charge for this session.

Personal Triathlon Coaching for 2019

As you know alongside coaching with TriHarman-Norfolk Teresa and Mark work with individuals to prepare them for their triathlon events.  They offer bespoke training plans and 1-2-1 coaching sessions to keep the preparation on track and to ensure the triathlete is the best they can be on the race day.

There is a limit to how many racers they can take on and there are now just a handfull of spare slots left for 2018.  It is not as expensive as you may think, if you need their help see them at a session or message direct.

Coaches Corner – Eating to stay lean by Teresa

We all know that we need to eat more when training but do we know we need to eat less when not training.  How many of us continue to eat the same amount of food per day even on a recovery day and wonder why we aren’t losing any weight or losing body fat.  It’s not rocket science but many of us have no real idea what we should be eating to fuel our bodies during exercise and afterwards.

Fad diets are not the answer, just carefully sensible eating balanced with your training.  Read more here.

A triathlon coach? What can they do for me?

TriH 2colThere are some class athletes out there who have the knowledge and experience to coach themselves.  They know which combination of sessions will make them go fast, know which new methods and products will help them and which will waste their time and money.  They know when to rest and when to train, they recognise the signs they are doing too much or too little and have the self-confidence to see their plan through to success.  If you count yourself amongst them I applaud you and will enjoy your success.

If you think doing all this and training for your events is beyond your skill and experience, you may well benefit from consulting a coach to help you achieve your goals.   Read more.

Coaches Corner – A way out of the end of season slump

Mark_Cambs_Tri(1)Cycling, Running and Triathlon are essentially seasonal sports, they need to be as endurance training and racing is hard on your body but it is generally due to the short days and poor weather limiting available events.  As the season closes you will need a rest to allow your muscles and joints to repair, but it is easy to lose motivation as your mind and body take the opportunity to recover.  This is not helped by the dark cold days and adverse weather which also reduces enthusiasm to train.  For some a few weeks pass then normal service is resumed, unfortunately for many it is not quite so easy.  Read more here

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 season has now come to a close for the evening 10’s with a flurry of personal bests on the final race.  I am sure TriHarman-Norfolk racers will be back in the spring.

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