Winter Training Evenings No.8

This is the last one before Christmas! We’ve been really pleased with the response and are aiming to have another series of sessions leading up to the new 2012 season.

The SBL Community Sports Centre
The Sir Bernard Lovell School, North Street, Oldland Common, BS30 8TS

Run consecutively every Wednesday evening throughout November. Time 8.30pm-10pm.

How will the sessions run? The first night will include an intro to training principles. A short talk of about 20 minutes to set the scene then we’ll get into riding.

All the sessions will be based on some form of intensity work as riders can do endurance at other times. This needs to be made very clear so that everyone knows what to expect. Of course, intensity is relevant to each individual and riders can choose how hard to ride!

Riders need to get to the venue in time to set up and be ready to roll all at the same time. Latecomers will miss the warm-up which will be an integral part of the session.

Sessions will also include some stretch & core work and general training advice.

What to bring
Turbo (rollers won’t really do the job for the sessions planned)*
Towel(s), Drink, Heart Rate Monitor (not necessary if using power meter values)
