Novices Race Practice Day - Dalkeith, Sat 9th May at 3pm
« on: May 05, 2009, 04:07:43 PM »
The ERC tri-squad sub committee have been working to provide a practice
day specifically for traithlon beginners, novices and anyone who would
like some practice of racing.

We have booked Dalkeith School swimming pool on Saturday 9th May from
3pm-4pm. This is the venue for the up and coming Midlothian triathlon.

Several of the club coaches led by Martin Gore will be on hand to offer
advice and specific training in racing including transitions.
The emphasis is on practice rather than hard training. The format will
be something like (to be confirmed),

1. Swim time trial over 750m in race format, a chance to see what it
feels like to do 30 lengths while trying to draft the guy in front and
count your laps. We'll have lane counters as well.

2. Swim to bike transition practice, handy for working what to wear and
how best to put it on when your soaking wet.

3. Change into cycling gear and then go on a steady group ride around
the bike course for familiarisation.

4. Bike to run transition practice, how not to fall off in front of
everyone, Bruce to demonstrate.

5. Run time trial on the run route.

We can leave our kit in the changing rooms in between disciplines and
use the showers afterwards.

Also Ben has kindly offered his place down the road for a bring your own
BBQ afterwards, if the weather is ok.
