Ironman & 70.3 Training Squad

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Apologies for last week’s newsletter, the information for the above training program was incorrect.  The training program for both Ironman and 70.3 are for 18 weeks  starting from 31st July.  There are places still available.

For two years now the club has been slowly refining a long course specific program for its members and the fourth instalment of the NCTC’s Long Course Preparation Squad will be running for the upcoming Ironman and 70.3 in December.

Club coach Brad Hosking will be supported by club captain/coach – Mike Bosch. With a multitude of full Iron distance races, as many halves and a multitude of other standalone races, coupled with 7 ½  years of coaching specialising solely in the Full and Half Iron disciplines, Brad has amassed some respectable experience which he is desperate to share. A father of two with a full time working wife, Brad understands deeply the impacts and challenges that preparing for a long course triathlon has on an individual athlete and the support team around them.

Be you a first timer, multi finisher, front of pack, back of pack or in-betweener, if you’re looking to compete in the Busselton Ironman or 70.3 on December 3rd this year and wish to prepare yourself in not only the best possible and time effective manner, but do it all within a super fun, highly motivating squad environment, then the 2017 Busso IM / 70.3 NCTC Preparation Squad is due your serious consideration.

As much as we all wish we could – performing at our best doesn’t just happen; it’s a culmination of a long, purposeful, often demanding and testing journey and whilst good results and / or personal satisfaction don’t just happen without good ol’ ‘nose to the grindstone’ work ethic – It certainly doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. With a definite start date set for Monday July 31st , the 18 week program will be an opportunity you won’t want to miss and whilst the squad concept is already a wonderful experience for everyone involved – it only gets better the more numbers we have.

The club is desperate to build this into something BIG! We have the membership, now we just need a few extra leaps of faith.
