LATEST UPDATE FROM CAM....... Feb 7th 2012

Well done to those that competed at Kinloch there were some great results! Just a couple of things from me…

 1.       Tomorrow will be a running session at 4pm from the Taupo Harrier Hut. Next week will be cycling at the same time same place. This running session will be skill and speed based so at an easier level than Friday morning.

2.       Friday morning running goes back to 7.15am from the Harrier Hut. I would encourage you to be a member of this club and utilise the facilities there after the run, or the AC Baths. This session is more endurance based with a strength component so athletes need to be able to run 5km at sub 5min/km pace.

3.       Wednesday night is the 5km run at the Main st Domain. If you raced on Sunday I would not recommend this run and come to my 4pm instead (this should be all tri squad members coming to my session as we all raced on Sunday).

4.       I have included a link below for parents who have kids competing at Triathlon, it is a great page with lots of resources for you.

5.       Good luck to those going to Nelson for the National Aquathon Champs.
