I have 5 free tickets to the triathlon workshop that the Sports Science Institute are hosting this evening Monday 5 October. The workshop is aimed at triathletes interested in upskilling themselves. The range of topics includes swimming training and the advantages of wearing a wetsuit; getting the best out of your bike and run; the 4th discipline (transition) as well as the highly under-rated value of recovery.
The workshop has some fantastic speakers including Andrea Steyn (@an3asteyn) Vicky van der Merwe (@VickyVDM_) and Viv Williams (@veteranviv). There are also some super lucky draw prizes including a GARMIN 920XT tri bundle!
Want a free ticket to this not to be missed event?

Bianca just buried herself on the run to claw back 21 places but in the end fell just 2 places short of the final ascent and the Black t shirt cut off. I have no words for how I feel and what I have seen her put herself through today. I am absolutely devestated for her but so proud of her for giving it everything she had. She is in agonising pain but in true Bianca Tait fashion she is still running to the white t shirt finish.
We are on the run course Bianca ran out of T2 in 183 position. She is running well and taking back places but it’s getting hot and no one is throwing in the towel. Everyone wants a black t shirt.
Let me say that the 5th and last climb to Imingfjel is a nasty one. It is 7km long and unrelenting. At nearly 150km in the legs already I can’t imagine how tough this must be.
Bianca is doing great she has just summitted the 4th climb and is 6 hours in lying about halfway through the field
After a cold swim she shot through
the first climb nicely before being hit on the plateau with cold temperatures of 4C with a bitter wind chill.
We will update again shortly
So its 4am local time and the 2015 edition of the World’s most Extreme Triathlon The Norseman is about to get underway.
