2018 is here and that means we are no longer racing next year, the season start is just weeks away.
TriHarman-Norfolk is a small friendly club supporting adult and junior triathletes in North Norfolk. Our racers range from teenage to retired, sprint racer to Ironman, beginner to GB athletes. In common we all have a desire to enjoy the sport and the lifestyle it brings.
TriHarman-Norfolk have regular training sessions delivered by our highly qualified and experienced coaching team. If you would like to join us come along to a training session or get in touch. You will find more details here.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us at Woodlands Leisure last night for our evening with Kimberley Morrison. It was a very entertaining and enthralling story of her career so far. Thank you also for your donations for the Great Ormand Street Hospital Charity.
Our biggest Thank you goes to Kim, we look forward to following your successes in 2018.
TriHarman-Norfolk has some incredible lady racers who take on the toughest races out there. Through the last year we have seen Tracy working towards taking on Ironman Wales. We know how hard she worked and while we love to report the successes such races don’t always go to plan.
Here is Tracys report, one thing can be guaranteed this is not the end of her triathlon story. Read more

So here’s the thing, a year ago I never had any inclination, whatsoever, to become an Outlaw in 2017, completing an ironman distance triathlon in 14hrs 5mins and 40secs. I had thought I might do another marathon to celebrate my 60th year, but not this!
Firstly, I should say that without the help of Mark & Teresa, I would not have been any where near as successful as I was, so a big thank you to them. Nor would I have been so fortunate as to have the support and time needed for training if it wasn’t for Nigel and Poppy, massive thanks to them also.

An email at the beginning of April put my triathlon plans for the year in turmoil. Having planned for my first A race to be late July , Castle Howard the first qualifier for the 2018 European championships, I found that I had a late roll down slot for the 2017 Europeans in Kitzbuhel in June!

Many 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.
Great to see so many of our racers taking part, they are back on the usual Pretty Corner-Holt route on 2nd May. See more here
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.
There 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.
