I must say as a coach this weekend was one of the most rewarding weekends so far. Just check out the results below! Sarah was fourth in her age group and Ellen was seventh in hers. With this result Ellen will automatically qualify for the Great Britain team to compete in the ITU World Championships in London! Guy Holbrow and Matt Osborne have already qualified for Great Britain over the sprint distance. Sarah has already qualified for the New Zealand team. I have just heard that Sebastian Arroyave has made the Colombian team and we have Matt Charlton and Rohan Byles in the Australian team! We must not forget Gail Wilkinson who won her age group at Ironman 70.3 UK and is off to Las Vegas for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships too!
Just a reminder that on Tuesday we will meet at the pavillion just next to the tennis courts in Victoria Park for our run session. There are bike racks to lock bikes to there. Please do not bring anything that you cannot run with as anything left with the bikes will be out of sight of the group once we start training. If you would prefer to train on your own we will be doing 3-4x 1 mile reps at 5km pace with a 4:1 work to rest ratio i.e. if you run 6mins/mile then you will have a 90sec rest period.
Also if you are signing up to race in any events be sure to add them to the LFTC Race Calendar. See you Tuesday night. Tim (LFTC Coach)
