Ponteland Tri Swimming Sessions going well

Tri4u Coaching in partnership with Ponteland Tri have expanded their Monday evening Coached swim session at Ponteland Pool to all 4 lanes.  An additional 12 members of Ponteland Runners have now attended their first 3 coached swim sessions with Tri4u and are benefitting from the benefits of a structured coached swim programme.  ( They have also had some great fun at the sessions )  They join a number of Ponteland Runners who already regularly attend these swim sessions.

The four lanes cover a wide range of swimmers,  some club members are looking to complete their first Triathlon,  others to improve their front crawl technique,  and some, who’ve already completed a number of triathlons are benefitting from proper structured coached swim sessions as part of their training programme.

The session runs on a Monday evening from 19:00hrs to 20:00hrs,  finishing just in time for the structured Run training session from 20:10hrs to 21:15hrs.  This provides a great dual-sport structured session on a Monday evening for many athletes in the club. If you are looking for a triathlon club in the area we are a great place for beginners and experienced athletes,  we offer a good variety of sessions and are keen to support anyone looking to try a triathlon or get back to running.

If you want to join the Monday evening swim session please contact Sue the club secretary.

For anyone who remembers the “Learn to Swim Young Man…….” advert will know there are many benefits to improving your swimming and it’s never too late.  As many of you know I was a complete none swimmer until three years ago and have now completed three sprint triathlons with another three booked this year.

Thanks go to Triathlon England who have faciltiated these expanded swim sessions and provided great support for Ponteland Runners as they have become an affiliated Triathlon Club in addition to a Running Club.
