Past season was a bummer for many athletes, restrictions for training and cancellations of races. While outdoor sports can always happen with a very low Covid19 risk. This is prooven this summer with no clusters coming from cyclingraces, running races or triathlons.
Today the first groupsession of the winter prep was held. Focus on an endurance plate, with some short spicy toppings. Coronaproof, within regulations of the .BE governement and with advice of the Flemish gouvernement. All set for a nice day. All set for sports, good for mental and physical health!
This in contrast to what some people would like people to do. Stay home, do nothing, get in bad health mentally and physically. Well fuck that!
During the run we did a short hilly trailrun trough the forest, followed by an ‘old school’ fartlek on the park trails and an easy flat cooldown.
All athletes at their own paces, fluently and structured. But above all laughs and enjoying sports. For some athletes this was the first ‘group’event in the last 8months.
After this run with quite some variation our athletes changed the shoes for the mountainbike. An endurance ride through fields, forest and singletracks made this 2h lasting ride enjoyable and fun despite some run and mud 🙂
With some challenging parts this ride was groundbreaking for some of them.
Well done and onwards to the next step!
Individual outdoor sports are in se coronaproof, keep going and keep doing this well structured and balanced. Not like a battering ram.
Train smart, perform better!
