Old Age Strikes!!! Argh!

Dear Athletes

Please be advised that I shall be absent for the next 6 weeks worth of running sessions. For those of you who have been regularly running with us on a Monday and Thursday evening and cycling on a Wednesday and Saturday morning, you'll be used to my whinging over my sore achilles tendon which I put down to old age and not taking enough of my own medicine and easing back into things gradually!!!

Suffice to say I've got to the point where its just not getting any better and as such I won't personally be attending the run sessions for the next 6 weeks and might also miss the occasional cycle ride as well in order to get myself back on track. Sorry about that.

Never one to let you down though, I have prepared full details of all the bike and run sessions for the next 6 weeks (a total of 24 sessions) that you can view and download here: http://www.theteamcore.com/documents/August09.pdf

The hope is that you will all continue to meet up as usual and benefit from the camaraderie and motivation that is inspired from training with The TEAM CORE.

I am hoping to regain a bit of consistency through some rehab and basic strengthening work and in the process partake in a little Consistency Challenge of my own which I hope will also serve beneficial to some of you in the future starting back after some time off. I'll keep you posted with this little experiment in due course.

As you're no doubt aware, numbers in the squad swim sessions have really started to pick back up again. I will be meeting with the Claremont Pool management today to discuss adding some additional swim sessions to our program due to the popularity we are seeing. It is very important to us that our numbers are kept at a manageable level to ensure the highest standard of coaching possible. Please bare with us whilst we enhance the program in light of this demand.

Lastly, some of you may have seen the flier at Claremont Pool advertising a 10km Relay Challenge on Sunday 18th October: http://www.theteamcore.com/relay.html This will be an ideal kick-start to your Rottnest Channel Swim campaign. Teams can be comprised of 4 to 8 people with an individual section also due to be announced. Get your entries in soon as this is sure to be very popular!
