ATC Coaching Weekend Report :: Becca Ashby

ATC-Coaching-Weekend-CycleIt’s been awhile since I have managed to make a training session with the club so thought I would try and attend as much as I could on the coaching weekend.

Sally took the run coaching on the wet & miserable Saturday morning. She went through many useful exercises and techniques to improve our running styles/speeds. We even had a backwards skipping demo from Ian and Jen! Ask them to show you when you see them next! 😉

Next I went to the swim coaching session, run by Lee & Paul. I had my technique filmed by Lee and he ran through a few ways that I could improve. Actually there are probably millions of ways I could improve but he stayed positive and gave me some pointers in the right direction!!

Finally I took part in the novice bike ride on the Sunday, organised by Alex. We had a quick safety briefing first by Paul (which we managed to put to good use 5 minutes later when Amanda came off her bike, luckily nothing too serious, just a bruise or two I think). We completed the Brett Triathlon route and the weather was perfect.

A massive thank you to all the coaches that were involved in organising this and giving up their time to help us all.
