Tri Training NZ

10 Weeks to the Jules Taylor Wines Marlborough Women’s Triathlon

I’ve prepared a twelve week training programme to prepare you for the Jules Taylor Wines Women’s Marlborough Triathlon. Each Thursday I will post it here for you follow along with. This programme started Monday 5 September 2016. The first week of the programme can be found here, with the second week here.

Key Point for the Week

When you train, you break your body down. When you recover from that training your body repairs itself stronger and better than before. You need to make sure you get enough sleep (8 hrs is the goal – yes, I can hear all the mothers reading this laughing, but I still want you to aim for it) to ensure that this can happen.
