Stand Up Paddle Boarding | Mountain Biking | Trail Runs | Boot Camp | Bike Skills | Tour de Latte Rides | Band Night….. plus loads more!!
For the majority of our athletes, April is the month to recover and have some time off from triathlon. As with previous years, we have again put together a fantastic line up of activities for the month of April which are aimed at allowing you to have a break from ‘normal’ triathlon training and have some FUN while still maintaining fitness. Sessions will be fun based and all with a social element. For those who are still in training for events, a number of sessions will cater for you – however you will be required to bring your program with you and be aware of your own training schedule.
So keep reading to find out what we have in store for you!!
What is the importance of the Recovery & Transition Phase?
The Recovery and Transition Phase is an important part of your Training Program and is the last phase of our 5 training phases in our Yearly Planner. Recovery at the end of a racing season is extremely important and will have a direct impact on your training and more importantly—racing, over the next season.
Immune System Recovery
Recovery from recurring or niggling injuries
