Lakers Winter Training Schedule

Congratulations to everyone who raced and trained with the Lakers over the summer. While triathlon is pretty much a year round sport across the country April is when we flick over to our winter program. This means we focus more on the run side of things and park the open water swimming for a while.

While we are pretty consistent with our training there will occasionally be variations, so please refer to Facebook or the Lakers BTW for the specific session for the upcoming week.
