This weekend saw the first big race of the year for Bristol University with the annual BUCS duathlon. As well as coaching the club as a whole I’m currently working a little closer with a small group of the university athletes to guide them towards what the want to achieve over this year. Results were strong with 3rd places in both the mens and womens race along with the mens team finishing 4th and the womens team 8th
Elsewhere it was a quiet weekend as you might expect for this time of year with Maria Powell also doing a bit of racing for fun training at the Chilly Duathlon (same course as the BUCS event) and giving it a big smile crossing the line in 4 place and first in her category.
In other Endurance Sports Coaching news, last week was spent on a mini camp with Natalie Seymour in Spain; focusing on recognizing and starting to make technique improvements ahead of the hard training to come. The trip also allowed be to recce the venue for the ESC camp in February and I can tell you it’s looking great! If you would like more information about this please see the training camp page of the website and do not hesitate to get in touch.
