Spin, Summer Sprint Series etc
A quick and dirty update on where we are
Firstly, I've revised my coaching structure a little, and am waiting for Nathan to see if he wants to change his stuff, the revised structure is here. This is to better reflect my specialisation in sprint and my experience. I will still be running the Tuesday ergo sessions which are both sprint and endurance sessions, as those of you who go already know - that's just had a pricing change and is otherwise mostly unchanged. I'm not coaching endurance riders so it makes sense that I make that clear.
We had to cancel the last round of the SSS for 2011-2012. This is mainly due to clashes with so many different events and training sessions that I just couldn't see a path through, and burnout on the part of many of the guys in the squad, not just racers but also the vitally important volunteers who run it. We're fried and need a break.
Now the good news!
DISC is closed from mid April 'til the end of May to have the leaky roof fixed. Good-o! But .. yes that takes away our Sunday DISC sessions for a bit. I'm considering (read: will, somehow!) running a Sunday sprint-Ergo session during that time, maybe at Blackburn, maybe at the powerHaus, maybe at home (if Jayne agrees!). Better than nothing. We'll charge a tenner to come and suffer, BYO chunder bucket and road bike as usual. It won't be an enduro session, just sprint. If Nath wants to put together some enduro stuff we can certainly accomodate that but I will leave it to him to decide. The track time loss is more critical to sprinters than enduros during the off season, but if Nath wants to make it happen I'm happy to help.
