2021 Club Training Overview - Provisional

Covid -19 Update

The club has been busy over the winter puting things in place to allow us to provide more training opportunities than last year, including training up a number of activators, but of course everything is subject to change as government and BTF guidance changes.

Welcome to our provisional training programme for 2021.

We aim to offer a number of weekly and monthly training session across all discipline suitable for all abilities. All sessions provide a structured workout designed by our club coaches and winter training is more focussed on getting the basics right, working on your weaknesses as well as strength training to prepare you more race specific training early next year. Summer training sessions are normally designed to support our members get ready for racing but this year is a mix of both in the hope that racing will return at some point.

Swim Training

Pool Swimming (all Year) -  RESUMING 17th MAY

  • Adults only
  • Day: Every Tuesday evening (pre-covid was Weds at 0615)
  • Time: 2030 – 2130

Numbers per lane are restricted due to Covid-19 so we have had to make this a members-only session for the time being.
We can still accommodate less confident swimmers but overtaking is not allowed by the pool so ask that you at least be able to swim unaided for at least 200m.
If you don’t know your CSS time you can work it out by doing your own time test or come along to one of our CSS timed sessions and check your progress. To find out more about CSS click here

Open Water Swimming (Spring/Summer) -  RESUMING APRIL

  • Adults & Juniors
  • Day: Wed/Fri/Sat

  • Members and non-members

We have partnered up with PWSS for 2021 to ensure our members have some place safe to swim. All swim fees are payable to PWSS directly but KLTC members get to swim at a generously discounted rate.
The sessions are going to be timed to concide with Pentney's lakeside S&C sessions so it should be possible to really make the most of your visit.
Once the club is able to, we will host special coached sessions and races throughout the remainder of the season.

Indoor Cycling/Turbo Training
  • Day: Wednesdays
  • Time: 1915
  • Venue: Online (Zoom / Zwift)
  • Cost: Free

We normally hire a hall over the winter and members bring their bikes, a turbo trainer, a towel and a big bottle of water for a sweaty training session. They are ideal to build fitness and strength over the winter as well as build stamina and endurance ready to hit the roads in April. These sessions are intensive but suitable for all abilities. Everyone follows the same session but at their own pace/capability.

This has not been possible during the pandemic so we moved online over winter and we host the session over zoom instead, with one of our coaches leading a group ride on Zwift alongside a workout. There is no need to have a Zwift acount however as our coaches talk you through the workout and you can follow the action over zoom. Details are posted each week on Facebook
