Just to mark the date in your diaries. CTC annual training weekend is on for the last weekend in February (21-23). The weekend will follow similar format to previous years: accommodation in self-catering houses, price includes accommodation, dinner on Saturday night and all of the coaching/training sessions. Harry Wiltshire who is preparing the CTC training programme will do specific sets for the weekend. Typical activities have been; cycle Saturday morning, run and core sessions on Saturday afternoon, dinner together on Saturday night and another (easier!) cycle Sunday morning. The cost is being maintained at last years price of €85. Registration will be opened on the website soon. This is a great opportunity to kick start the season, get some serious training and have a great social weekend with other club members. Training groups will be divided into three level categories, elite, intermediate and beginner.
