Club NEWSletter - July 2010

posted Aug 8, 2010, 7:34 AM by TeamSonic Secretary
Hi all Sonic Ladies and Gentlemen,

The summer is here! The sun is really shining after the rain.
By the time I write this piece, the tempature outside was 32-33C, oh that's really a good way to test your mental toughness for training!
Another good idea is to stay at home with air condition and TV, since World Cup semi-final and the Tour De France just begin!
No matter what the Sonic training don't stop. HK Triathlon and Ironman Taiwan is just 3 months to go!
