Yesterday we had a special visit from TriKidz. They came to work with years 1-6 and teach us all about the sport of Triathlon.
We took part in swimming, cycling and running. The swimming part used special bands, attached to the fence, which allowed us to use our arms as though we were swimming. We used road bikes with turbo trainers attached to rear wheel, these kept the bikes stationary and measured the distance we cycled. Finally, we ran several laps of the run course.
Then we did it all over again but in teams, supporting each other all the way.
Year 5 won the class competition, just pipping Year 6 with Year 3 in 3rd place. Well done year 5!
Our total combined distances were a whopping 5km swim, 145.3km cycle and 43.3km run! Wow!
We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, although we were a little tired by the end!
Thank you TriKidz for delivering such fantastic sessions!
