From the Coach’s Corner with Coach G – Lockdown edition!!!

Coach G

We have all now been in lockdown for a week now and during this time we have had to make adjustments and sacrifices. One of the sacrifices we are all making is the ability to run or ride our favorite routes not to mention the social interaction with our training partners.

During this past week I have been amazed by how resilient and innovative people are. I have seen posts of people running full marathons in their backyards to people actually doing a full Ironman within the confines of their own property – read this inspirational story

Well, I figure if people can do that, then surely running 2km or 5km a day is entirely possible. So, during this lockdown period challenge yourself and challenge your friends  and challenge your family to remain active

Top Tip: WhatsApp, is an amazing tool to use to create a group and challenge each other.

Until next week be safe, stay at home and remain active.
