Wiggle 6 Winners
This weekend at Catton Park, there was a 6 hour MTB enduro. 6 hours of MTB riding on a cross county course. Phoebe and Di entered the womens pairs category, it was a tough day battling for the girls with the 1st and 2nd position changing throughout the event, however the girls pushed on in the last two hours and put in their fastest lap time of the day, giving them a 3mins lead over 2nd place. An awesome achievement and a first ever win for Phoebe. Oli and Chris were also on the podium in 3rd position with some fab technical riding and super fast lap times. The boys worked hard all day and made the podium. Gary was really pleased with all the athletes as it was the first MTB race for them all this season. Bruce Dalton also put out some strong laps and produced a excellent son and dad team. A brill day by all.
Personal Best Time Time For Fran
One year after the London Marathon, Fran competed in the Brighton marathon two weeks ago and achieved a new personal best time. Fran has ploughed on with training over the winter, overcome the snow and stuck to her training programme to reach her new time of 4hour 24mins. Fran has personal training once a week and worked to a marathon plan designed by Results Fitness and Swimming. Fran says she needs to have a goal, she needs to plan to ensure she maintains a healthy lifestyle. Results Fitness struture her training around her family and work committments. Fran yold us, at 13.1 miles all I have to do is run home. Fran is an inspriration to others having lost 7 stone in weight and turning her lifestyle around. There is no stopping her either she is now resting up for Sheffield Half Marathon on the 12th May.
Last weekend, several RFS athletes entered a new local event. This duathlon was slightly different than any other race, it was set in a wonderful location, it was the traditional set up of a run / bike / run, but with a twist. One run was an extremely hilly off road fell run and the other run was a longer flatter road run. There was no set order in which run you did first it was completely down to the athletes. This made it a really interesting race, as the competitors were tactical in their selection and also couldn’t really gague which of their competitors were ahead or behind.
The event was run by Karl Webster of Peak Life Events, Karl and RFS work closely together, Karl’s events are always interesting, challenging and very welcoming for all levels (with exception to the open water river swims for some). RFS will be supporting Karl’s other event, such as the open water swim, Aquathlons and triathlons. We would highly recommend you getting involved; visit his website at PEAK LIFE EVENTS.
So while Gary and Di supported the event with pre and post race sports massage, RFS athletes were out on the course getting cold, wet and muddy – while achieving personal best times, first time performances and even a few podium positions.
Bill Dinley has recently joined the RFS team, the dams was his first ever event, he finished with a smile and injury free. It was a simple goal but non the less a super starting point for us to build on. Bill has benefited from structured bike sessions and feels it is really building this knowledge and understanding of how to training smart, he balances his training with family life while increasing his fitness and now performances.
Michael Beech is RFS youth athlete and won the under 20 years category. Michael normally opts for triathlon rather than duathlon as Michael comes from a competitive swimming background. However he decided to use the duathlon as a training race and to gain some new race experiences. Like everything Michael does he showed real determination, this event was a lot longer than he is normally used to, but still he was first under 20 and very respectable 20th overall. Michael has weekly training plans from RFS so all his hard work is paying off.
Sylvia Yates and Jan Forrester, the vet ladies, definitely showed how tough they are. Jan used it as a practice race, as she hopes to qualify for a place on the GB team at Clumber this weekend, so fingers crossed for Jan. Sylvia performed consistently and is definitely setting herself up for a successful year of triathlons.
Ben Cartwright is currently in training for an Ironman , he entered the duathlon as a training race, Ben clearly showed his strengths when he ran into T1 with the lead group, Ben finished 3rd overall and was pretty much with the leaders for the whole race. Ben’s Ironman training is progressing nicely, his swimming is improving and the bike training is very much organised and structured, Ben has a young baby and it is essential for him to manage his time. Training with RFS provides him with exactly what he needs to do and there is no time wasted on junk miles. Congratulations Ben
Also Well done to Christine Howard 1st female, Nikki Dick 3rd female and Tim Nixon and all the high Peak Triathlon Club members that got involved in the day.
