Edition 15: 25th July 2012
Hi TriathlonOz Reader,
For most Australian age-group triathletes this is the off-season (unless you've qualified for Kona or Vegas but more about that later...). Our guess is like us, most of you have been been enjoying sitting on the couch watching the Tour de France, and in just a few days we'll all cast our attention to the Olympics.
But no doubt many of you have your own winter events to prepare for but otherwise its the ideal time to focus on strength development or shifting attention to MTB, trail running, kayaking or hiking.
In this newsletter we have tons of inspiring ideas and stories. Take a moment to read through the newsletter and visit the latest features on the TriathlonOz website.
|We've been busy developing our mobile site - this is just an "alpha" version but for our registered site
users we're giving you the first peak at it. It's developing at a rapid
pace and already contains the Forum, Shop, & Articles fully released
& functional but there's more to come so get onto the mobile web app and you'll never have to resort to mindless games when you could be doing something that might help your performance! See it here m.triathlonoz.com|
