Weekly Update 9 December 2022

Hi everyone

Winter seems to have properly arrived at last – it’s been very icy and below zero for much of the past two days and forecast to continue over the weekend. Please stay safe and do not go out cycling in these conditions, it’s terribly dangerous and just not worth the risks.

Instead why not sign up for some of the Club coached sessions? It’s been very encouraging to see numbers picking up over the past few weeks, especially for the swim sets. But there are also several online sets and guidance for turbo training and core strength too – all free and easy to access from the comfort of your own homes. And of course you can easily register and observe if you are still unsure and want to see what these sessions are like without committing. The wonderful Club coaching team are always happy to talk through kit and other training questions!

On the calendar front, please note that due to athletics fixtures at Horspath, the Parkrun tomorrow is cancelled. But at least the usual mud at Cutteslowe will be frozen for Oxford Parkrun, so no excuses.

Finally I am pleased to announce that Craig Bathgate will chair the Club for 2023. A huge thank you to him for volunteering to step up. For those of you who don’t know Craig from his coaching at track, please feel free to introduce yourselves. We now have all the main committee positions filled but of course there’s always room for more and we could especially do with some more help on the Club admin and website organisational side of things, as well as holding the role of Club secretary. You are interested then please drop either Craig or myself a note via chair@oxfordtri.co.uk.

Happy indoor training until next week – all the better for working off the mince pies and office parties!

Best wishes

Nick Wenban-Smith – chair@oxfordtri.co.uk
