WaldenTRI training sessions - Spring/Summer programme

Our new programme is settling in nicely with very good attendance - thanks for such enthusiastic participation. Please see the schedule of sessions for the week beginning Monday 17th May below.

Of course, over the past year we've had to get used to things changing very often with very little notice. Do use the club's private Facebook group and its new WhatsApp group to stay informed of changes.

All members are welcome at any session: coaches will always ensure that every individual gets the best from each session, regardless of fitness or previous experience.

A few important notes:-

  1. The next step in easing Covid restrictions is reached on 17th May, of course. That means that coached swimming sessions can at last resume, and we kick off with Week 1 of a new ten-week course.
  2. The week beginning Monday 17th May is a "Week 1” which means it includes a cycling time trial on Thursday evening not a coached run session.
  3. I'm pleased to say that our new Wednesday lunchtime coached run session becomes a weekly fixture from this week onwards (rather than fortnightly).
  4. We'll try a new approach to Wednesday and Sunday swim sessions this week: i.e. just turn up, no need to book in advance. If we start to reach maximum capacity we can reintroduce advance booking.
