Chairman’s Blog – No April Fool – we are allowed out again – 1 April 21

March has marched past with lots of virtual fun (and some of us got out and about as well), and the Off-Camber cycle competition twist and completion – well done to the winners and all that took part and thank you Andy Soward for organising.  

Also, a great club effort in the Super League Triathlon (SLT) races - challenging everyone’s physical and mental fitness (some tech issues for many). Great FTP improver sessions from Iain Binsley, which I was in desperate need of, are still available for all on Zwift and Tracy Cook’s S&C sessions are still on (which I must get back on).  Check out all the upcoming training session on ClubSparks (https://clubs.britishtriathlon.org/NorthDorsetTri/Coaching).

The start of a new two discipline competition as well as the clocks moving forward (longer lighter evenings on their way - fingers crossed for some nice weather) is a sign of the end of March and the beginning of April (wow this year is going quickly all of a sudden).

As I hope you are all aware, April is when we hope to start to get back to it.  The “big reboot 2021” and gradual easing of lockdown restrictions as we chart our way out of this storm (https://www.triathlonengland.org/the-big-reboot-england) and we should see the activities start again (for adults and juniors).  Please keep an eye on Facebook and ClubSparks for info and bookings.

Whist club swimming session are still a little bit further away, (either the pools need to open or the open water temperature needs to get about 11oC) we will do what we can to get in the water as soon as we can.

A couple of reminders – Membership fees are due and there are a couple of events that need our help.  Please volunteer to Marshall if you can – details on the ClubSpark Events tab (https://clubs.britishtriathlon.org/NorthDorsetTri/Events).

A special thanks to all that came cycling on Monday 29th March – our first opportunity to group ride (cover picture).

Hope to see you all at a coaching session very soon

Stay safe
