Now that winter is here and the racing season slows down after this weekend we have made some minor changes to the Brisbane squad training program.
Theses changes are:
– The Thursday morning run is now Thursday evenings from 6pm at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs Cafe.
– The Thursday night and Friday morning swims have stopped and the Thursday morning swim will now be for all abilities.
– Wednesday morning rides for June will be coffee/latte rides. Easy group rides with longer stops for coffee afterwards.
– Saturday mornings for June will be a run focus in preparation for the different running events through the Winter.
The changes are for the next couple of months only and once we get closer to the first events of the 2013/14 season in September we will revert back to the normal calendar.
It is a good idea to change the focus slightly in Winter after such a long season. It gives everyone a chance to reduce the intensity of training and do something different like longer group runs on Saturday mornings and mid week latte rides.
The Gold Coast program will stay as is and like Brisbane the training focus will be different. Lots of technique work in the pool at St. Hildas, Southport and some easy group rides also on a Tuesday morning for June.
The Wednesday morning fartlek runs through the trails at Main Beach, Southport have been a hit and will continue through the winter to build strength.
As always consistency and a good routine through winter will help prepare you for the upcoming race season. Motivation is limited but a good routine is unlimited and once you have that routine, training through winter becomes a lot easier.

GOOD LUCK CAIRNS ATHLETES

Everyone has trained hard and looking forward to the race. We will post photos and updates on the FB page and you can also follow everyone’s progress on line on the race website.
