Resurfacing of Car Park

The tarmac area of the car park where the large pot holes have developed is due to be resurfaced tomorrow. There will still be vehicle access to the car park all day but parking may be limited slightly and any running WODs may need rethinking! Please park appropriately so as to still allow large vehicles to get to the end unit. If there are no appropriate spaces available you can park on Education Road. Thanks

 

Today's Training

Endurance

This is Week 3, Session 2 from Rowing WOD and leads nicely on from last week's Endurance class for those who did it! You can read additional notes on the workout on the Rowing WOD website. We will go through the WOD in detail in the class and work on how to effectively adapt your stroke rate on the rower without effecting your stroke length.

Last Thursday morning's Endurance Class taking on Rowing WOD Week 2 Session 2. If you enjoyed that one, you'll love Week 3 Session 2!!!

It's brilliant to see over 30 of our members getting behind this excellent project and adding some really challenging rowing workouts to their training schedule as well as learning more about how to row efficiently. The benefits will be apparent. I've personally noticed a huge improvement in my fitness from rowing every other day for the past 4 weeks.
