Week Nine Challenge - Intermediate23rd June 2020
Week nine brings you the final week of challenges to complete on The Big Colour Challenge and we’re going out with a bang!
Reach new heights
You can win entry to top events in 2021 thanks to our friends at Limelight Sports.
We want to see how you’ve been embracing swim training at home whilst pools have been closed. Simply film your ‘home swim training’ and send it on social media to the event you want to win entry to. The winning videos will then be chosen at random through the campaign. We can’t wait to see how creative you get!

Push your possible
The return of the bleep test! Mark out two points in your garden/outdoors to run between. Press play on the bleep test video below and make sure to reach the opposite point before the bleep. See how long you can go for and repeat it through the week to see if you can beat your record.

Make a splash
Triathlon is swim, bike and run, however you may be finding it easier to train for the run and bike at the moment. Don’t neglect your swim though because it’s a case of no pool, no problem with these swim exercises. Check out the links below to keep your muscles moving:
- Use the triceps dip and incline push up exercises from here
- Give these flutter kicks a go too
Let’s get aero
You’ve done your swim, now onto the bike. All out for 26 minutes. Think about cadence and pace and how you can maximise this limited time frame, then three, two, one. GO!
Round off your triathlon challenge with a run. 5km route around your local area and see how quickly you can complete it.
Fancy a challenge? Put these three swim, bike, run challenges together to simulate a triathlon – you can also throw in transitions too if you’re up for it.
