Turbo Training

Start Time:

Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Description:
This is the ninth in another block of 10 turbo sessions. Drop in for a one off session or sign up for all 10. You'll find us a friendly, inclusive bunch who'll never leave you behind on the hills; we can guarantee that the weather will be good too!

Each session, of approximately 1 hour's duration, will comprise of a warm up, commencing anytime from 18:40 onwards & a workout starting at 19:00 focusing on different elements of training and a warm down. Different leaders plan and deliver each session, accompanied by a soundtrack.

Tonight's Aim: to improve muscular endurance as well as to accustom your mind and body to the discomfort of working slightly outside of your current sustainable power capability with the further intent of slightly extending that capability. i.e. a series of longer Sweetspot/Threshold efforts with rests in-between. Think of it as money in the climbing bank for the Summer Season :-)

There is a small charge to cover the cost of hiring the hall. Please contact Karen if you have any questions.

Report:
Cracking commitment by the assembled grimpeurs to master repetitive transitions in & out of the saddle. For sure you made a graceful bunch - well done. It also served to take your minds off the 23 minutes of honest graft that I'd smuggled into the session.... (grin).
