Firstly congratulations and huge thanks for the race reports from Ironman Cork last weekend. For those that don’t follow Facebook the reports from Coach Matt and AJ are now posted on the Club website, and we also have Rebecca’s report from Swansea 70.3 a couple of weeks back. Reading Club member race reports is definitely my favourite form of procrastination when I’ve got a tough turbo set scheduled!
On a more prosaic matter, we have 10 swimmers signed up for Queenford tomorrow morning, but no safety cover as yet … I know it’s holiday season but please don’t leave it to the usual suspects to step in and volunteer. The Club ethos of volunteering and generous gift of members’ time, enthusiasm and experience are one of the most amazing things about the Club’s culture but it does require an element of constant vigilance and we can’t get complacent.
I haven’t seen any Club rides posted on Facebook for Sunday morning but keep your eyes peeled or just turn up at Oxsrad 09:10 Sunday morning and make a plan. Make the most of the good riding weather while you can!
Finally, it’s the time of the Nordic Ironman races this weekend. Best of luck to Sean in Kalmar tomorrow and Guy in Copenhagen on Sunday (apparently you can do them both in the same weekend which might be a fun thing for the Club to organise one year!).
Finally, finally don’t forget to consider standing for the Club committee at the October AGM, it’s a hugely fun and rewarding experience, and is an excellent way to learn a lot of tri know how from the inside, get to know a superb bunch of people and shape the Club’s evolution and development for the future. There are also opportunities for assistance with coaching qualifications, just DM me or Lead Coach Nathan to find out more.
Have a great week everybody!
