As we get ever closer to the start of the triathlon season the Squads at our Nottingham Performance Centre have been working hard to start the season in the best possible shape.
One of the big benefits for the athletes in the squad is having the athletes from the University and Absolute Tri working together on a daily basis across all 3 disciplines. This allows a healthy level of competition in training when the sessions allow.
On the run track last night we have over 20 youth and junior athletes working hard not just with effort but also technically and using each other all the way.
This morning on the 50m pool we again had over 20 athletes which allowed us to do some great open water practice for the season ahead. Having enough athletes on a daily basis makes this sort of session easy for us to deliver and allows the athletes to develop skills such as drafting and also being close to other athletes.
The squads continue to grow and with a number of athletes looking at Nottingham University for this September will be stronger than ever.
