WORD FROM THE COACHES
As Coaches, we can always tell when we are about to head into recovery week. Athletes are starting to feel the effects of previous sessions, it’s that little bit harder mentally to get out of the bed in the morning. But the athletes that push through these sessions knowing that recovery is on it’s way will get the results and goals they are after.
Last weekend was a solid training weekend for most, with a number of athletes taking our advice and including a train through race into their weekend – with the Duathlon, Hazelwood triathlon and Sandy Point 10km/Half Marathon. Races like this are tough when you train through on tired legs, but they allow for a spike in training and start to prep you for the next phase of the program. And it reminds the body what its required to do – and that’s race, and race hard. 🙂 So a great chance to blow the cobwebs out after a solid strength endurance phase – not long until we move into pre race and race specific phases. So get ready to ramp things up in the coming weeks.

For our London World Champs, Vegas and Kona athletes, they are in full flight of their pre race and race specific phases, with just 2.5 weeks until the Half Ironman World Championships in Henderson, Nevada (Las Vegas!).  Only 3.5 weeks until the Sprint and Olympic Distance Age Group World Championships in London, and 7.5 weeks until the Hawaii Ironman World Championships in Kailua, Kona. These athletes have it made tough for them given they are training through winter for summer races over seas, and it’s tough going to peak at the start the season. So hats off to each of these athletes – and make sure you wish them all well in their final preparations.
Half Ironman World Champs: Nick Sissons, Marina Jurjevic, David Nealon, Ella Davies
London Age Group World Champs: Lisa Dominquez, Lisa MacFarlane, Paddy Fitzgerald, Tracey Linquey, Jill Sultan, (and good luck to Sheridan Brown also!)
Hawaii Ironman World Champs: Brett Archbold, Sarah Grove, Nathan Sims (and Tri Alliance Strength & Conditioning Coach, Kemble Edelston)
