ESC Update - February 2015
February tends to be one of those months where you just get your head down, put in some hard training and dream of the summer to come with maybe the occasional training race. SO with the 'training race' in mind Maria Powell and Mike Baptie headed down to the always sunny Weston-Super-Mare for the annual Tough-10 race. This year the course has been made that little more challenging but no less fun and both Maria and Mike enjoyed their days (or so they tell me!). Following this Maria decided she needed a bit more of this training race fun and headed over the the Chilly duathlon to take advantage of the transition practice and test out the run-bike-run format before Clumber Park duathlon next month. Linzey Ryan and Natalie Seymour both headed off to Hampton Court to do the half-marathon and with very different training put in their best performances on the day - a very important mindset for races at this time of year.
Elsewhere Andy headed off to the 220 Triathlon show to deliver a workshop on Mental Strategies for Triathlon. Thank you to everyone who came along and for the positive feedback, it was great to see you all!
Tip of the month - Training races are good to see how well your training is going at that time. Remember to place the emphasis on the processes within the race rather than the result itself.
Recipe of the month Chicken Fajitas Lean meat, lots of veg and tasty too!
