North Coast Tri Club News Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

What a weekend! Interclubs was fantastic as always. Lots of club banter and catching up with old friends. Congratulations to Exceed and Fremantle who took away this year’s trophies. We had 37 athletes competing in a field of 280, next year we’d like to make it more and give it a real good go to grab one of those trophies. BIG thank you to our team of volunteers, you were fantastic and fed the masses beautifully! Once again, these events are made great by the participation and volunteering of Club members, if you haven’t put your name down for an event this season, we’d love you to consider. Thanks also for the last minute sign-ups from out WIT ladies, we knew you wouldn’t regret it, you all did fantastic! Hope to see you at many more events.

TAPER! TAPER! TAPER!

All our hardworking long distance athletes will be spending their week mentally preparing themselves for next weekend. Final spins, jogs and swims and lots of food. Big shout-out to our first timers, whether it’s the full or half, some inspirational words to get you through the week…

“I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.”

Go and burn the house down guys! We’ll be there cheering you across the start and finish line. Special shout-out to our Club President Milou, who had to shelve her debut at 70.3 last season due to injury, she’s looking strong and focused to do great things this weekend. Watch out Busselton the North is coming!

THURSDAY 29th November

RIDE: HEPBURN LOOPS

Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords

The Hepburn Loops ride is based on laps around a 10km circuit in Hillarys. We start at Whitfords Shops (outside Celebrations) and take Whitfords Ave to Hepburn Ave, then back to Whitfords along Marmion Ave – we turn left into Banks Ave down to the roundabout and head past Bunnings and back onto Whitfords Ave – thus completing 1 loop/circuit. We ride as a bunch and try to do 3-4 loops (riders can peel off at any time as suit their needs). Ideally, the first loop is done at any easy pace and then we build the pace for each lap – the aim is to keep the pace consistent throughout the whole lap – no surging, no sprint efforts. The final lap is your fastest effort but steady the whole way. Great training for everyone.
