Coaching News – January 2018


My Facebook feed has been momentarily lit up by a podcast of an interview with a retired coach of elite athletes in the still small community of triathlon.  The principal topic, according to the title, is developing running speed but, as yet, I haven’t found the time to listen to what this coach has to say.  It’s not that I don't think that I can learn from his experience – although I note that despite his success, athletes in his charge have succumbed to more than their fair share of injuries – but I am disappointed that he waited until retirement before allowing others to share in his coaching methodology.

16/01/2017 Natural running form workshop with Jo Parker MBE

Despite the challenging conditions, it was great to see Jo again and to assess how much her running has improved since she attended an LBTri Natural Running Form Group workshop.  in between reading her book, the rather excellent Water Under the Bridge, I am now working on her analysis report and revised feedback with exercises and drills.

06/01/2017 Vikki Voysey training hard

Vikki Voysey spent two half days with us specifically to work on her cycling and to assess her progress developing her running form.  After a 20km test ride over the Big-Cow cycle route, she then rode 5 repetitions of Chicheley Hill working on varying cadences to help optimise her hill climbing cadence.  Despite very difficult conditions - cold, wind and rain - we have some excellent early season data to progress her training for this season.  Some quick video analysis confirmed that her running form has indeed improved and this was qualified further after a visit to Hannah Watkinson at Frontline Podiatry. Vikki closed a tough few hours of training with two climbs of Bison Hill.
