In the lead-up to the Virgin Active London Triathlon this weekend, we have some last minute advice from two elite athletes - Olympic Team GB Triathlete Lucy Hall and Paralympic T35 Sprinter Sophia Warner - who took part in the Skechers Performance Secret Series Run Session last Thursday.
The session was all about how to get the most out of your run leg of the race. It began with a dynamic warm up, followed by a 1km run and a track session at VA Barbican - with instruction and critique from our guest athletes. After the running shoes came off, both Lucy and Sophia were keen to share race tips and answer any last-minute questions for the first timers taking part in the London Triathlon.
Lucy’s advice to the beginners was simple: ‘’Everyone else is in the same boat as you - nervous and maybe even scared - but keep your chin up from the start.’’ Sophia added: ‘’You’re going out there to do what you’ve been training to do so don’t forget to enjoy it!’’
Both Lucy and Sophia will be taking part in the Virgin Active London Triathlon this weekend so come and experience the buzz of the event and cheer on all the athletes – newbies to the elite – starting with Richard Branson’s VIP race on Saturday at 12pm.
