Lessons Learnt – ‘Get a Coach’

Race Report – Ironman Wales, September 13th, 2015 Training had gone very well and bar a few minor injuries  – falling down a manhole, coming off my bike and slicing through my finger the night before the race – all was good. I had lost a lot of weight after becoming a WholeHealth convert and […]

Changing direction when things don’t go as planned

We came, we got muddy, we got medals!

A different type of racing for some of our athletes racing last weekend. Still a triathlon but with a bit more mud. What’s X-Terra, Pam? An off road triathlon said she, and so it was that we turned up at a field on the Vachery estate (no, nor me) near Cranleigh last Saturday and pitched […]

Saturday morning run session

With a couple of the athletes still having a race to target this season the run was based around getting the Glutes working, fast feet and fast turnover. Starting with some Glute activation work we then moved onto some interval […]
