ESC Update - July 2014
With a weekend to celebrate his birthday watching the spectacle of the Tour de France in Yorkshire Andy was able to have a bit of downtime (albeit with plenty of crowds) while ESC athletes carried on with races and a good block of training. Marc Scholz went home to Frankfurt for IM Germany and raced strongly in hot conditions to match his 2013 time, I'm sure it won't be his last. James Grandfield went over to Pembroke for the Long Weekend and put in a very strong performance over the three day long distance practise event. A strong swim (his natural strength), hard bike and all wrapped up with superb marathon (his first one). Let's hope the real event in Weymouth in September goes just as well.
After a week of training in Loughborough with the National Talent Squad everyone headed out to Geneva for a European Junior Cup race. A tough bike course (with a big hill) saw to test the junior athletes in beautiful surroundings. Performances really came together this weekend for many athletes.
Training tip of the month - Get your training environment right with supportive people around you and training become so much more productive.
Book of the month - The man who could not stop - David Adam . A story about OCD, mind-opening. Well worth a read!
