APRIL RECOVERY AND TRANSITION PHASE 2015

April 2015 Training Timetable

For the majority of our athletes April marks the end of the season and time to recover and have some time off from triathlon. A chance to have a break from the ‘norm’, catch up with friends, have some FUN while still maintaining fitness. So we have again developed a fantastic lineup of sessions and activities during April to allow just that. Sessions will be fun based with a social element, but still allow you to push yourself at times to maintain a base fitness.

For those who are still in training for events such as Port Mac or Cairns, please ensure you speak to a Coach in regards to a specific program to lead you into your events.
