A great talk last night from Dr Karen Weekes - lots of practical advice on how to deal with the boredom, fatigue and pain of training and tips on motivation. Plenty of food for thought for us - I'm sure everyone came away with something they can apply to their training and racing.

A follow-on session around goal-setting is being planned for GCH members in late March/early April. Watch this space.
