The final Junior Sunday evening swim before the summer break will be Sunday 7th July, 6 – 8pm as usual.  We will resume on Sunday 1st September.

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.

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.

Why should you do Pilates? By Teresa Harman

Pilates

Athletes train their bodies to maintain and improve their performance in their sport.

Many top athletes and dancers use Pilates to assist with their training.  For example, Darcey Bussell a well known and loved ballerina and now Pilates instructor uses this method to maintain her health and mobility.  In an interview in the Evening Standard nearly three years ago she said:I truly believe Pilates is such a good thing, especially if you have had children”.

So why should you include Pilates in your training?  Read here.

My class at East Runton Village Hall, Thursdays 7pm to 8pm is particularly suitable for athletes.

Coaches Corner – Don’t let rain stop training

Let’s face it we live in England, it rains regularly in the summer so you can be sure it will rain more in the coming months.  Riding in the wet can be a miserable and uncomfortable experience, purely social riders can choose whether to ride but many riders book their events days, weeks or months in advance and there is no way to anticipate if it will be wet or dry.  You can decide not to start the event but you may have invested significant time and money getting to that start line, a DNS may not be an option.

So if you are going to complete wet events you need to train and prepare for those conditions.  The rain doesn’t have to spoil a beautiful day if you have trained and prepared to ride fast and stay safe despite the water.  So how do we adapt to cope well in the bad weather?      See more
