Back into racing….Elite Endurance Project launched
Well after 6 months off the race track, it was nice to ease back into things at the Deep Water Point 7.5k last weekend. With a few ankle sprains on my dodgy right ankle and a slight calf twinge in the last few weeks before the event, I thought the universe may be conspiring against me and I may not make the start line.
Although the run itself was far from spectacular, it was nice to be out racing again and competing with some basic fitness. In the end, I managed to ease away from my protégé, Thomas Bruins in the last few km to win in a time of 24.17, to his 24.30.
Most importantly, the new Elite Endurance Project has now come together and we have an outstanding core group of 15 elite athletes training very hard together. The group has a mix of long distance runners, duathletes and triathletes and our work is predominantly in the running and cycling components. It is a natural progression that an elite group is formed to add to our existing Beginners, Women’s Running & Fitness, Personalised Training Options and casual training groups.
Looking forward, I will be continuing with a running focus until the new year and trying to spend as much time as possible with Emma and the family
