Week 3: McFadden McMeeken Phillips Lawyers Nelson Women’s Triathlon Training Programme
I’ve prepared a twelve week training programme to prepare you for the McFadden McMeeken Phillips Lawyers Nelson Women’s Triathlon. Each Thursday I will post it here for you follow along with. This programme started Monday 23 January 2017. 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 to ensure that this can happen. Eight hours is the goal. Yes, I can hear all the mothers reading this laughing, but I still want you to aim for it.
