by Terry Rodham in Blog 0 comments

Introducing the TRTC 2018 Advent Calendar with 24 triathlon training tips for your winter season.

The holiday season is fast approaching and Advent calendars are an intrinsic part of our countdown to Christmas. I’d never really thought much about Advent beyond the traditional Advent calendars I use with my children every year – typically a calendar with paper doors that have a piece of chocolate behind them!

So, in the spirit of Christmas and Advent, I’ve created my very own TRTC Advent Calendar with 24 triathlon training tips for the winter. Beginning tomorrow through Christmas I’ll post an expanded daily version of each of these training tips on Instagram to help you maximise your off-season and maintain your fitness over the holiday season.
