Club Update and training Plans for the week of Saturday 28th April

What a difference a week makes!  Last weekend we battled through marathons (great job Celina, Andy and Emma) and 100 mile bike rides (well  done Steve B) in over 20 degree heat… this weekend will be chilli and damp.  Good luck everyone taking part in the swimathon this weekend (including our junior swimmers Ella and Henry P on Saturday)…

and good luck to the team taking part in the Blenheim 7k.  There is a whole bunch of us heading to Blenheim on Sunday.  We are meeting at 9.45 am just to the left of the registration tent. The junior 1 mile run starts at 10.15am.. and the 7k starts at 11am.  We are hoping to retain our Team trophy (2017 best team!)…. so good luck every body

It’s not too late to enter the 7k (the 1 mile race is sold out) for more info:

Now the warmer weather is at last upon us, the lake at the West Oxfordshire Sailing Club is warming up.. we plan to swim at the lake on Sunday mornings… meet this Sunday at 7.30am for the first group dip of the year (a quick swim before we head to Blenheim!).  I will be there this week so can sign in non members:

Club Update and Training Plans for the week of Saturday 21st April

Welcome back after the Easter Break!  Please note that Circuits is on Friday 20th April. 6.30pm Standlake Village Hall.

The Triathlon season kicked off last weekend with the Bicester Triathlon: Well done to Steve Bright who smashed the course and came second place in his age group.

This weekend sees Marathons a-plenty.  It’s going to be the warmest London marathon ever apparently – so good luck if you are taking part.  We are off, however, to the Southampton Marathon on Sunday. (Also due to be a warm one!).  Good luck Celina, Andy and Emma… all taking part this year.
