Embark 2 Oceans Half Marathon group ready to go…

The EMBARK Two Oceans half marathon group have gone from strength to strength. Almost 12 weeks ago, some couldn’t even run 5kms without taking breaks and huffing and puffing away. This week, they completed a staggering 19km run and everyone finished. With various training sessions during the week, speed and strength work. Our Friday bootcamp sessions started off tough and the athletes now make it look so easy. It’s been a great opportunity for people from various aspects of life to meet likeminded people and get a sense of achievement and a healthy level of competition between them. Training has had a few weeks of introduction then kept on growing as the athletes progressed and got stronger. We did a few races so that the feeling of race day isn’t new to anyone and pre-race jitters doesn’t affect their performance. It’s been a great few weeks and the growth in each and every person has been exceptional.

The role of a coach is to look past the moans and groans and know the potential of the athletes. Some of argued about it, but none of not made it or not done that which has been asked of them. I am really proud and know that they are going to be successful in the race. I will be right there at the finish line waiting….
