Brilliant weekend at TCR

Energised Performance headed up to Sandown Park to the TCR (Triathlon, Cycling, Running Show) to meet up with clients, business and friends. Having spent Friday working with Sports Performance Clients in Putney, Saturday rolled nicely on from there (after taking my sister out for breakfast on the way – she is studying fashion at Kingston and definately one to watch in the future… but not for racing kit!).

The talks put on by 220 Triathlon were brilliant, including BAD Tri Head Coach Andy Bullock, ‘Strategies to Improve your Ironman Run, Richard Stannard, ‘Faster Open Water Swimming’, Joe Beer ‘Boost speed on the Bike’ and Dr Lynn Fitzgerald & Simon Wegerif Recover Workshop plus the brilliant Chrissie Wellington Q and A…. so many good tips for newcomers, and pro’s alike to take away…. I wonder what you picked up if you went along… do post your thoughts!

Then I spent a brilliant two hours meeting up with so many people including the Serpentine athletes who are preparing for the Advanced Mental Strength Workshop in April, plus Northants Tri Steve Casson and Mel Ryding who are preparing for the Mental Strength Workshop later this month.

I had good discussions with a long term associate company TORQ fitness about their new products, including the delicious Rhubarb and Custard Gel (you have to taste it, it really is good!), Fit Brands Layla Smith about testing the ON Shoe (really excited about doing that – thank you Layla!), Triathlon Plus editor Elizabeth Hufton about future features, Tri Girl’s owner Patrizia about our Beginner’s Triathlon Workshops (dates to be released soon!), British Triathlon about working in China at the World Triathlon Champs (with Aurelie from the Tri Touch – very exciting) in Sept, MacMillan Cancer about racing for them at the Caledonian Etape and many age groupers I am supporting with Sports Massage and Mental Strength for the 2011 season… exciting times!

And then I headed back to Bristol for a wonderful ride with some great clients, in the pouring rain with lots of mud = lots of good fun! Remember Good Training, good rest, good nutrition, good fun, clear goals = good racing 🙂

A Good Day out!
