In preparation for this year’s Triathlon SA Aquathlon championships the Lakers Triathlon Club will be running a come and tri Aquathlon and coaching session on Sunday January 12.
The session involves an initial coaching session on the aquathlon and how to execute a great race, followed by a “training” race option (long or short) to suit your ability. Meet at the Henley Beach SLSC at 8am. This is a free event.
Open water swim training
One of the biggest fears triathletes face is the swim. Even if you are comfortable in the pool, the open water is where the race happens. Making sure you invest the time into developing your open water skills and confidence is vital. The Lakers are running a 5-week open water skill development program in January and February to help guide you along the way. The session’s use a variety of game based learning activities to make for a fun session that progressively pushes you out of your comfort zone. The program will suit all levels, from high performance to beginners, with activities modified to suit abilities.
Having run this program for over 15 years Nigel Pietsch has plenty of experience to make sure that you are looking forward to the swim come race day. The one-hour session runs every Friday at Tiranna Way West Lakes from Jan 31 to February 28 at 6pm. $5 per session or $20 for all 5. Please register your interest with Nigel Pietsch
