We were fortunate to have Bo Tyler speak to the club on Wednesday about nutrition in training and endurance events.
It was a very interesting talk which raised over £100 towards TriHarman member Becky Coopers 1000 mile event charity appeal.
Bo has provided a summary of her talk.
Well done to everyone who took part , the weather has been wet, icy cold, windy or all three each time we have put them on this winter. Some great performances which will help your racing in the months to come.
It was great to see our junior racer Billy running and riding so strong.

TriHarman-Norfolk next Cycle Training Session – Sunday 29th April
Well done to everyone who came along on our last session, it was a pleasure to coach in daylight and temperatures above freezing for a change. The times for your run/bike/run time trial were impressive and set out here.

We have secured the use of an excellent facility to offer floodlit traffic free cycle training for those new to Triathlon cycling and those developing in the sport.
The session will be led by two qualified coaches, covering basic bike handling skills including braking, gears, cornering and dealing with hills. The session is open to all TriHarman-Norfolk members and our junior squad, but for safety we have to limit numbers to 25 riders.

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.

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.
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
What is Pilates? by Teresa Harman
Pilates is a safe and effective way to train the mind and body using a floor mat and a variety of equipment. Pilates focuses on building a strong core through the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine.
Pilates builds strength without excessive bulk creating a streamlined and toned body helping towards achieving slender thighs and a flatter tummy (isn’t that what we all want!).
Pilates teaches body awareness, good posture with easy movements, whilst improving flexibility, agility and sound movement patterns. It can also alleviate back pain.
Pilates can be so beneficial to the older population as it reduces the risk of injury that weight bearing exercises can cause and is not as severe on the joints like other workouts can be. It also helps with a variety of age related ailments such as osteoporosis, lumbar stenosis, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
As a fully qualified instructor with 12 years’ experience, I offer a range of exercises to suit all ages and abilities and offer variations to existing well known Pilates exercises by using a variety of equipment to make the exercises as easy or as hard as you may like.
