Andrea Whitcombe is a former elite triathlete, ITU winner, Olympian and senior coach with the leading triathlon coaching company thetrilife.com.
If all has gone smoothly with no illness or injury you will be feeling fitter, looking fitter and ready to push yourself a little bit more.
Progress your training this month by selecting 1 or 2 of the following tips:
• Turn your hilly run into hill repetitions. Find a hill that takes between 30 seconds and 1 minute to run up. Put in an effort up the hill and recover coming down and repeat this several times depending on your level of fitness.
• Follow the same pattern above for your bike ride. An undulating ride can now become a ride with several hill repeats.
• If you can find the time add another session to your weekly schedule. This should preferably be a session of your weakest discipline.
• As it is gradually getting lighter in the evenings add a few more minutes to one of your evening sessions. This could range from a few extra lengths in the pool or 5-10 minutes added on to the end of a run or bike ride.
Would you like Andrea to be your personal triathlon coach and help you achieve your goals whether first triathlon or Age Group Qualification?
