Now that you have all recovered from that one lost hour...can we take a moment to say, how good is daylight savings?! Longer days, more sunshine and good vibes only means one thing - more time for training and spending time with friends...and hopefully many wonderful Elwood sunsets!

It was a big weekend both here and abroad with Jimmy Tyler smashing out a 40min PB at Ironman Barcelona. Congratulations Jimmy! Hard work, patience and consistency across all elements of triathlon (not just swim-bike-run) is paying off!
Closer to home, our favourite Norwegian ran her way to 3rd place at the Trail Series on Saturday, in the dark! This was the last race of the series which saw Andrea also finish 2nd place for the series. Congratulations Andrea!

Lucky it's recovery week because this weekend is even bigger than last with Trent and Sammy ready to take on the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii; Neda heading off to smash out the Chicago Marathon; and loads staying closer to home for Melbourne Marathon this Sunday. We send nothing but good vibes to everyone, we will be tracking and cheering you all!

Recovery week signals plenty of sleep ins, turning it down a notch at sessions and with it being our last Thursday night run at the Tan, we thought it would be rude not to have one final steak night at Arcadia! Our first Try the Tri kicks off for the season this Saturday and we have a run clinic with Coach Weeksey this Saturday and a swim one on Sunday! Read on for all the details!

We rise by lifting others.

Congratulations Jimmy!

James Tyler "You Are An Ironman" x 9.  We couldn't be happier for this man, on smashing out an Ironman he truly deserves.  Amazing effort all day long topped off with a 3h32 marathon run.  ANNNNND ... Jimmy smashed his last race time (NZ in Feb this year) by 53mins and his personal best by a whopping 40mins. Truly awesome!!!

Pre-Season Swim Tips

This 90-minute clinic is perfect for you if this sounds familiar:

  • You’d love to take part in triathlon but the swim leg is putting you off
  • You feel like you’re fighting the water
  • You’re out of breath after just 30m in the pool and have to rest frequently
  • When you swim you imagine your legs and feet dragging low behind you
  • You don’t look forward to swim sessions at all
  • Swimming is simply a struggle and you’re at a loss as to how to improve
  • The thought of swimming alone makes you uncomfortable 
  • You’d like to graduate to open water swimming but don’t know where to start
Sunday 13th October
12pm - 1:30pm
You do not need to bring sports watches, and there will not be extended periods of swimming so fitness is not an issue!

The Final Steak Night @ Arcadia

It's our last Thursday night run at The Tan so we thought what better way to signify the end of our winter programming than with steak night at Arcadia! Join us after our recovery week run for a bite to eat, a drink and plenty of chats and laughs! Arcadia Hotel is very used to athletes dropping by after training sessions, so just bring something warm, and as you can see from the pic, we go as we are. Oh...did I mention they have $12 T-Bones on Thursdays???? We're looking forward to seeing lots of happy faces there!
