Start summer training early with an overseas swim camp

Maintaining swim fitness and improving technique during a British winter can be challenging. I’ve got plenty of motivation but still find it hard to get up on dark, cold winter mornings for the trip to the pool. So why not try a warm weather swim camp? After a bit of research, I chose a venue that offered plenty of other sport and leisure activities so that we could treat it as a family holiday. The primary aim of the one-week camp was to identify where stroke improvements could be made and to focus on specific drills that could be incorporated into a training programme back home. I wouldn't end up with a perfect stroke but would go away with a clear idea on what to work on and how. Two ses

A cold start of the Race Season

Fantastic start of the race season! It was cold and beyond early on a Bank Holiday in April but the turn up was great. We had 12 members of the Westcroft Triathlon Club competing on the Thames Turbo Race 1. We also had some great support and someone even did some cake to share after the race! It all started at 4:30 for most of us, then registration from 5 to 6, brifing and then the race. The sun was out but it was still freezing!!! We will upload everyones results once the organiser publishes them. Great race, great turn up and what a nice way to start the season! Here are some photos of the day!!!
