Warm Weather Training
Each year Helen goes to Benidorm in the Costa Blanca region of Spain and this winter she was lucky to be able to return to the resort as a base for a short block of warm weather training. The location for Helen’s stay was the bike friendly
Terralta Apartotel, which, situated near a number of Vuelta a Espana climbs, is ideal for cyclists. She was provided with a hire bike by
Ciclo Costa Blanca/Meta Bike Café. The main focus of her training was cycling but she was also able to take advantage of the warm sea temperatures to do open water swim practice as well as some sessions in Benidorm municipal swimming pool. The athletics track and woods behind the Terralta Apartotel were the ideal settings for some interval sessions and steady runs, as was the Poniente Beach promenade. Helen has now returned to the UK where she will focus on getting fit for the start of the quadrathlon race season. Helen had travel insurance from
Helen has teamed up with Pulseroll- the leaders in vibration training and recovery. The Vibrating Foam Rollers & Peanut Ball are great for reducing DOMS and increasing flexibility and are used by elite athletes and physiotherapists. Helen will be using the Pulseroll Vibrating Foam Roller to help aid her recovery and avoid injury. As a competitive athlete Helen knows the value of massage but can't always access a sports masseuse due to being on the move, travelling and cost. This is where Pulseroll comes in- as it is light and portable Helen will be able to get a deep tissue massage at any time! The Vibrating Foam Roller has four powerful speeds, which reduce next day training soreness, increase flexibility and mobility and improve circulation.
