NWTC Juniors Training 24th April - Swim + Strength & Conditioning

Image
Morning Everyone,

quick couple of things this week

Swimming
In the water for 9.10am sessions start @ 9.10am Paddy, Gerard & Alvaro await you all :-)

Strength & Conditioning
First session of 2016 we will base this session on functional movement, strength, technique and conditioning. What does this all mean well we will show you on Sunday morning. If any of the parents want to get involved just turn up wearing appropriate clothing and we are good to go. Dont worry this session is not about exposing anyone inflexibility :-)

London Marathon
Finally best of Luck (not that he needs it) to Tommy "the Tank" Mc Callion NWTC member & NWTC juniors coach who is running the London marathon on Sunday morning, he will do anything to get out of coaching :-)

See you all Sunday Morning


Training 17th Swim Bike Run (Triathlon) & a Few Notes.......

Image
Morning Everyone,

Training
This week in preparation for the upcoming triathlon season we will focus on all three disciplines swim, bike and run. As usual start in the pool ready to start the session in the water @ 9.10am swim continues until 9.50am. Then a quick change into cycling/running gear, the session will be a "brick" session. A brick session is where we cycle for a while, then transition into running and run for a short distance. We will do this a few times and finish up by approx 11am. 

The weather for Sunday (today) look OK we should get away with little or no rain, but it looks cold so dress up appropriately what this means is a few layers, if you put on only one heavy layer once you warm up on the brick session you will be too warm.


Congratulations: Well done to all our junior members who last weekend had a busy weekend, we had swimmers in Bangor taking part in the ulster championships on Sunday and on Saturday a lot of members took part in the Foyle Hospice Swimat…
