Put them together and you will be a more economical runner. What I mean is more speed, less effort…smiles all round.

That’s a little bit of what your body will be doing but equally having the confidence going into your run from the bike will ensure you finish strong too. So whether it is your first Triathlon or you have completed Iron distance the principles do not change. Now on to the sessions…… Lisa Fenwick Run Lead-York Triathlon Club Coach
