Weekly Update 2 July 2021

Hi Everyone

Welcome to July and race season proper getting under way.

Many Club members are racing – special shout outs to Alex and Gracee who’ve successfully made it to Lanza (enjoy your self-isolation on return!), the whole bunch of folks at Outlaw Holkham Half, plus anyone racing the Fugitive at Marlow, Philippa and Tim enjoying the seaside at Croyde and last but not least Malcolm doing Triathlon X up in the Lakes (my personal favourite!). Looking forward to hearing all about it, and of course photos and race reports on the Club facebook page. Oxford Tri expects! Above all, try to enjoy the opportunity to race whatever your personal objectives and circumstances after such a trying 18 months. And if you’re not racing then enjoy your training and cross-training activities and I hope you manage to dodge the showers.

A big thank you once again to the coaching team for stepping up as lock down has been relaxed and bringing us more and more in person sessions. As reminder the coaches bring us their time and expertise for free and the Club would be a shadow of its current success story without them! If any members are interested in coaching and coaching qualifications then please do have an introductory chat with friendly head coach Nathan (just email me if you need his details).

The July committee meeting is on Monday, so just let me know if you’d like me to raise any issues.

One final reminder to complete our 2021 member survey. As an incentive all survey participants will be entered into a prize draw for a brand new aerosuit. Alternatively you can remain anonymous if you would like.

And finally welcome to our new members this week, and there are still spaces to swim at Dorchester tomorrow morning! And please note there’s no yoga on Tuesday as Rebecca is away.

Any questions, as ever just ping me.

Happy training!
