2016's Tri Something New guests enjoying a well-earned ice cream

This is my third season working for Tri Training Harder and I can honestly say that this week is my favourite week in the season. It's not that I don't like 'normal' triathletes, not at all. In fact I would be surrounded by athletes the whole day and sleep in my cycling kit if I could - but my friends say this is a bit weird. Tri Something New is an extraordinary week where you can be sure that you will NOT hear any of these words: watts, triathlon races, maximum heart rate, VO2, VDOT and CSS.

TRI Something New is a training holiday for complete beginners interested in getting fit. This specific week is not only for triathletes but for people who would like to get a bit of motivation and encouragement to get in shape, do exercise and have some fun as well.

The training during this week includes scenic country walks, work out sessions, core work and pilates sessions, swimming, cycling lessons with learning about signalling, cornering and braking, building confidence on a bicycle as well as learning how to like riding uphill (yes it can be enjoyable!!). Most of these activities include a coffee and cake stop or an ice cream stop! I can promise there will be lots of fitness sessions, laughs and great sun tans.
