Bridge Week 1
WEEK 1 Newsletter
We hope you have enjoyed a well deserved break, if you did the Christchurch race -hopefully you have recovered well and are ready to get back into routine with a fresh mind and new motivation as we head towards the start of RaceTeam Epic,
These next 3 weeks are all about building conditioning and for those of you who are coming off the back of RaceTeam Christchurch - maintaining conditioning.
RaceTeam Epic is a strength based programme, the aim is not speed, it is about strength and endurance so a slightly different focus from the "normal" RaceTeam we do. This is a bit of a mind shift so start to prepare yourself.
Each Thursday evening for the following 3 weeks we will be sending you a newsletter containing the information about the following week's sessions. Please read these newsletters carefully each week as they have some valuable and important information in them.
