Open Water season Tips

Some practical videos for donning the rubber and some important advice from Head Coach Dave Brayer.

Dave and some of the experienced swimmers and coaches will be on hand for advice at both Repton pool and at Hall Croft Farm OW venue on the 30th. Don’t feel you need to take the plunge on week 1 if you are new to OW……but do come and talk to us and if you’re ready, we are there to support.

Don’t forget your disclaimers and emergency contact details and keep an eye on facebook or emails to confirm temperatures are high enough to open as planned (link to OW page)

East Leake

New members are up and racing!

Max Roberts is new to the sport and to MVH this season. Read his account of his first triathlon race at East Leake below. It is a useful commentary for other “newbies” which outlines the mental preparation and application required to make this sport a success: the so called 4th discipline (transition) and the race-craft & pacing clearly playing a big part come race day. Thanks for sharing, Max! Some of our more experienced members could learn from your preparation!

MVH Summer Training Weekend

This is great training but also an enjoyable social event. Haworth and Hebden Bridge are great tourist spots and the surrounding countryside makes it ideal for WAGs, family or friends to join you for the weekend (as long as they don’t mind losing you – or joining you – as you clock up the training hours!)

If you haven’t yet signed up……what are you waiting for?
