It’s a strange year.

It’s easy for anyone not training for the Olympics to suggest the IOC either postpone or cancel the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. However, for the many athletes that are training or at least doing their best to train for the biggest sporting event in the world, this is their life.  Athletes don’t just train

  I’ve been coaching myself for 8 months now and for the most part it’s been great. The programming and the physical work is the easy part. I know what works for me and I know what my body can and cant handle. The part that I find difficult to handle is being the coach

I am now two races onto the European season and I have mixed emotions. When I started training for the new season we put new processes into my technique which I am absolutely loving, the only problem is, is that its new and when you start something new you have to go through a learning
