Week Eight Challenge - Intermediate16th June 2020
Great eight! We’ve got more challenges for you to try at home, and don’t forget to colour in your charts when you’re active this week.
It’s time to get creative in the kitchen with OTE! Pop on your apron and cook up a delight with as many colours as you can. Whether it’s something for dinner or a sweet-toothed snack, the choice is yours. Why not see if you can incorporate swim, bike, run into your multicoloured masterpiece?
Before you tuck in, take a picture and share it on social media using #StayInWorkOut and tagging in @OTESPORTSGB on Instagram and Twitter and @OTESPORTS on Facebook. OTE will then select winners who will receive:
1st Place - Box of Gels, Bulk Bag of Energy Drink, Box of Anytime Bars, Box of Duo Bars, Tube of Hydro Tabs, & 2 Brit Tri Bottles (RRP £116)

Let’s get stronger
Le Tour de France is arguably to most famous cycling race in the world, so why not take some inspiration this week as we head to the hills! Plan a local bike ride that takes you on a hilly route or, if you can’t get out for a ride, try an iconic hill climb on Zwift (Alpe d’Huez, Col du Galibier or Mont Ventoux for example) or see if this year’s route is on there.
Roll with it
If you’re heading out on your bike, make sure to use this handy method to check your bike is in good shape. The ‘M Check’ is a little guide to help you give your bike a once over before your ride. You can see how to properly do an 'M Check' here.
Key tools needed are Allen keys for checking and tightening bolts and a track pump to show you the pressure in your tyres.
Push your Possible
Take on your very own duathlon! Plan out your run-bike-run route, making sure to pick a distance that is challenging yet achievable for you. Set up your transition area in your house/driveway/garden and give your DIY duathlon a go. If you’re unsure of how far to go, why not try 2km run; 10km bike; 1km run?
Share your route and distance and challenge your family and friends to give it a try.
