Club Training Sessions
2017 /2018 NSTC Training Session Plan
Training sessions vary throughout the year depending on the season and any major upcoming events. Check the race calendar under the Training tab for the most up to date schedule or download a copy HERE.
However, the schedule always includes a major bike ride on Saturday mornings, commencing from the car park on Mona Vale Road St Ives (opposite Pattison’s bakery/coffee shop) at 6:30am. This session is medium pace, middle to longish distance, depending on the time of year and what races people are training for. We have two riding groups - the 'Alpha's' and the 'Belles'. The Alpha's ride the full distance at medium to fast pace while the Belle's ride a shorter version at their own pace. All levels of ability are catered for and accompanied from start to finish.
Currently the ride alternates between several routes totaling around 70km, and it provides an ideal opportunity to meet and get to know the club and its core members.
Please check our Facebook group for latest rides.
We also have the Club “Transition Training Sessions” (approximating sprint triathlon race conditions, but in an informal, semi-competitive atmosphere) that are held during the main tri season (check calendar for dates).
Dates, times and format of the training sessions are available on the club MTS calendar, and consist of a 500m swim, 15k bike and 4k run and sometimes followed by a breakfast (Sunday mornings) or barbeque (Saturday evenings).
The swim commences at the Terrey Hills Swim School, Myoora Road. Arrive at least 30mins prior to the session start time for registration, course familiarity and transition set up. The bike is held on the low traffic roads out to Duffy’s Forest, and the run up and down Myoora Rd’s footpaths.
