Embracing the ups and downs of training

How has your winter training been? Thats the question posed by our Vice chair Jenny in an honest an open reflection on her winter training experience this year below. Jenny is training for Celtman this year and her reflections are a reminder that we don't take on challenges because they are easy. Training around normal life can be a challenge and along the journey sometimes we sometimes need to step back, rest up more and let the body adapt. It's also proof that encouragement and support go along way. Thanks for sharing Jenny!

2018 Awards night and club reflections

Triathlon Awards Inverness Photo Diary 10 Of 10

2018 was a fantastic year for the club rounded off in style with our annual and social awards night at the Inverness Rugby Club. In a year where the club won Triathlon Scotlands 'most welcoming club of the year' award and club membership topped 100; it was fitting that the end of year celebration attracted 70+ people for a night of games, food, drinks and fun awards.

While there is still plenty to do to develop the club I've been struck by the supportive spirit that members bring to our sessions and events. Being able to celebrate peoples journeys and achievements with so many was a great way to close the 2018 season. The social element of the club is something we are really looking to build on this year with more social runs/rides and events.

Luke in fine form at National Standard Distance

Local youngster Luke Williams was in fine form at the Scottish Standard Championships in Knockburn.

Some fantastic splits saw Luke exit the water first then produce a great bike and run leg, eventually holding on to take 3rd Overall Male and 1st Junior.

Well done Luke a fine effort!

Sheree's Off to Paris... by BIKE

36770205 10217172636450205 6423363439321677824 N

Can't swim, bike or run? Don't let that stop you doing a triathlon!
Lots of people put off joining the club or entering a triathlon because they don't feel they can't do the three disciplines or feel that they're just not fit enough to complete a triathlon. Well Sheree shows us that with hard work, grit and determination you can do a whole lot more than enter a triathlon.

ITU Long Distance World Championships

37167463 10155672181977338 2544537560445616128 O

At the end of July, Richard and Sarah headed out to Odense in Denmark for the World Multisport Festival which included a whole range of events such as an Aquathlon, Duathlon, Aquabike, CrossTri and the Long Distance event (among others). Sarah had qualified for the World Championship race the previous year and Richard had entered the open race (although is perfectly capable of qualifying for the world championships but chooses not to). Qualification to represent GB for long and middle distance events is by submitting a suitable qualifying time from an equivalent race. For shorter races you have to attend specific qualifying events. There are a few people in the club who have represented GB in the past and present and I'm sure there are plenty more who could meet the qualifying criteria if they wanted to! Feel free to come and chat to me if you want to know more about it!!!

Scottish Aquathlon Championships

Img 0160

Club chair James threw in a last minute entry and made a flying day trip down to Loch Lomond for this years Scottish Aquathlon Championships. Basically a sprint distance triathlon less the bike leg. So a splash and dash involving a 750m swim and 5km bike.

Compared to a triathlon its minimum kit fuss, rapid fire and over in a flash; particularly with the numerous GBR and Scottish squad kit on show. Having been training for longer distance events James managed to finish well in 34.50 in 26th overall and 9th in the senior mens race.

Ironman UK in Bolton

Both G-Squad's Graeme Stewart and local club athlete Patrick Haston took on Ironman UK this year in Bolton.

Graeme finished up with the top athletes in an impressive 08:48:18 to take 15th overall.

Patrick finished in 11.56.58. A great effort for a man who not content with doing an Ironman is also taking on a building project, on top of an already busy family and work life. Read Patrick's account below of how to get the best out of yourself during an Ironman day, even if you haven't managed to get as much training in as you'd have liked:

Myra's Journey

37107673 699771103702863 4505651672550211584 O

Not that long ago a group of ladies turned up at the tri club swim session with little to no swim experience, one of those ladies was Myra. It became apparent pretty quickly that Myra is one determined lady who works extremely hard to meet her goals!

Myra was kind enough to share her journey going through the process of using a personal trainer to lose weight and get fit and subsequently taking on the challenge of a wide variety of events... generally involving swim, bike and/or run!
