NOVICE TRIATHLETES START HERE!
If you are just starting out in the world of triathlon, a good starting point to give you a flavour about what the sport is about is the 220 magazines 'Beginners Guide', which can be downloaded in pdf format HERE
Novice Coached Sessions to start Feb/March
Get some swim coaching during the off season to really improve your speed for the tri season. ATC coached sessions available on Tuesday - see calendar for all dates.
In the mean time - try doing 10mins of drills at the start of your swim session (after warming up) - use a pull bouy or float to give you the extra boyancy so you can concentrate on technique.
Group cycle rides are a great way to get out with other cyclists and get the miles in. ATC Sunday morning rides are for club members who can comfortably cycle for 2hrs on hills & flatter terrain. Shorter/Novice rides are also held periodically - for those with less miles in their legs or anyone who wants a slower paced ride.
Wednesday night time trials run during the summer; starting on the A28 at Great Chart or the A20 at Harrietsham, and are great way to improve your speed over 10miles. Look out for others at the weekend 10, 25, 50, even 100 mile TTs - usually on a Sunday morning - see the CTT website for more details.
How do you mount your bike without looking like a Plonker?
Socks or No-Socks?
These and many other 'burning questions' will be answered in the Transition Coaching Session.
The last session was held in February 2011 at the Podplus Shop. Those just starting out in the the sport rubbed shoulders (not by choice - it was packed!)
with the club's seasoned veterans for a talk on the basics of Triathlon given by our Treasurer Terry Foreman.
