Cross country (XC) is back!

After a years hiatus, thanks to you know what, the Surrey XC league is back, bigger and better than ever! For those new to the club, XC is a four-race series that pits us against other running and triathlon clubs in South London and Surrey. 

This is a great way to keep up your running throughout the winter. It's sociable, relaxed and you don't need to be a fast runner to take part. The more Windrushers we have, the better we score, so as with all sport, the more the…

Love triathlon and computers, why not join the committee?

Hello fellow Windies,

After what will be 4 years of service I have decided to hang up the keyboard and not stand again for the IT Officer role.  I've really enjoyed my time in the role and it has been amazing to work alongside such dedicated and enthusiastic individuals while trying to help the club grow from strength to strength. It's a fabulous opportunity to give back to the club and get to know more people than you might do just by training and racing.  

Here is a quick low…

Feeling tired?

Well, we all do this, especially when training a lot, like a marathon? Of course, the legs will feel a bit heavy the next day. And covid, all that underlying stress and anxiety saps the energy. And I always had a bit low blood pressure, especially as a teenager, this just happens. Perhaps I’m over training? Why does this feel so hard?

These things went through my head last summer when I found training increasingly getting harder and rest didn’t help. I still did it, but had no push,…

Winter riding how to stay warm on the bike

Hello everyone

It's that time of year when the temperature is getting closer to zero and you may be wondering how to get out and enjoy riding your bike while staying warm during winter rides. 

Lots of members have shared tips and recommendations on WhatsApp over recent weeks, so I thought it would be helpful to collate as much as that information in one place for everyone. This isn't a definitive guide to winter kit, just what some club members find useful. Please…

Tri-down calendar challenge for lockdown II

Building on the buddy scheme introduced as part of the recently updated training schedule, we've put together a tri-down calendar - like an advent calendar but with a different tri-related challenge each day - to keep everyone virtually training/socialising together over the next four weeks.

Starting today, it will run until Sunday 6 December, with a new triathlon related task each day. You can see the week ahead, but the rest will only be revealed as the days go on!

Winter Running Plans

Hi all,

With the days getting shorter we are hoping that some additional running plans will provide some support and motivation to get out the door on dark evenings or cold weekend mornings! Please be reassured no dropping will be going on at any of these social member led runs, the point is to spend time on feet with the bonus of catching up with club members and making the miles fly by. If there is enough interest then…
