Still didn't stop us from having a good workout.

Tom, Charlotte and Annie started their specific long cycle training for the comp in August but this is top secret! ;-)

Annie was optimistic with the weather this morning so started the workout outside. Unfortunately we finished it inside! Double kettlebell work in pairs with one working while the other rests. On paper it looks pretty easy but gets you winded quickly.
Welcome also to Nicola to her first KBC session.
