Training for Hell –
The Us Marines have hell week, you have just one day but when the weather gods play foul and all “hell” can break loose…… prepare for the winds of of the west
This is going to be hard, but enjoy the experience
The final Few weeks : what needs to be done ??
6 weeks out you need to commit and balance an approach of going for it — do not hold back
kilkee is all about “hell”
But when we break the course down it becomes a hellishly simple.
The swim- its always long, the sea conditions can make it hard, navigation can be tricky if the swell is causing havock
so what do we need for the swim
you need to be able to control the level of effort and be able to sustain a good level of speed in the swim that doesnt cost your body for the run and the bike!
you will both notice that the swim sessions are set for endurance and towards strength over the next 2 weeks (shannonMasters sc)
key swim sessions of 12 x 200 — 8 x 300m — 5 x 400m all missed with paddles and target pace training will stand to you over the next few weeks
> have you used your paddles in the open water?
> have you used your fins in the open water ?
>have you done swim to bike workouts ?

Another big bunch of riders out last night for the TT, but unfortunately the times were slow with the cross winds along course making it hard to keep a good rhythm.
