WORD FROM THE COACHESAlbert Park Spring

Spring is in the air – we can feel it! And with it, we’ve seen a little extra spring in athletes steps this week. Even if it is recovery week and we know a lot of you feel tired, we’ve notice the little smiles. 🙂 The sun makes it so much easier to get out of bed in the morning and enjoy an easier training session or two this week. So make the most of the sunshine, soak up some Vitamin D and enjoy some training and leisure time outside this week.

We had another great weekend of training and racing last weekend. Some solid reports coming out of our Saturday rides, and some great times at Sunday’s deCastella Run around Kew Boulevard. A tough hilly course kept athletes honest and working the whole race. But despite this, and the efforts of all athletes on their rides the day before, we had some super strong results – particularly from our advanced short course athletes. Stand out performance of the day was Xavier Flynn who cracked the 17min barrier and showing that his patience and hard work is paying off. (For those who want the math, that’s 3:23min/km average!) Harry, Ryan, and Mark all also broke the 18min mark for their 5km race averaging around the 3.30min/km for their run, and Tim French had a solid 15km run to come well under the 60min mark. Great work all. Great early results, the consistency and training programs are working wonders. Can’t wait to see these guys in action over summer.Triathlon happy fathers day

A shout out to all our ‘Father’s’ out there – as this Sunday is Fathers Day. We wish you all a Happy Fathers Day and enjoy the day in the sun with your families.
