Big week, big block complete!! ITS REST WEEK!

Yip, that’s right! After 3 progressive weeks of training, the Embark athletes are now chilling, relaxing and taking it easy for the week. During the last 3 weeks we have put in tremendous effort into the three disciplines of swim/bike/run. The improvement is astonishing and i am over the moon at the 100% finish rate at the BSG Energade Triathlon yesterday. Some incredible achievements yesterday too, and all this on tired legs from a week of intense training, including a 4h ride, 2.1km open water swim, strength running and track and there is more, but that would just frighten you!

This week we look forward to an evening with Gu as they sample their products to the Embark athletes in preparation for the 70.3 in January next year. Gu is the official nutritional sponsor so the athletes must learn to train with the product as this is what will be handed out on the day.

On Wednesday night we have a night with Paul Kaye, Ironman commentator, as he does a motivational and educational talk for the budding 70.3 first time Embarkers.

Apart from that the athletes will be relaxing and recharging for Block 5!
