This week at Exponential performance Coaching
Squad paddle and Squad run were cancelled this week as I have been laying low with the flu after the training camp hence the late update as well. Both of these squad sessions will run as usual next week and will take the form of priming sessions targeted at keeping your energy systems primed during the taper period, so you go into the weekend races firing on all cylinders.
M2M Wanaka training camp
Over the weekend 8 keen Exponential Performance Coaching athletes undertook a training camp based in Wanaka (see attached photo). The aim of the training camp was to develop specific M2M race/course knowledge and get the training benefits through the training camp effect.
By day the athletes ran, road biked, MTB, skied and kayaked and at night presentations/ question and answer sessions were under taken so athletes could develop a better understanding of the M2M race, and some applied sport science topics which hopefully opened a few peoples eyes.
It was a big weekend and everyone pushed themselves which was great to see. Now all that is left to do is head into the race feeling confident that you know exactly what you are in for.

The Dunedin 1/2 and full marathon can still be entered up until the 10th of September so if you are planing on doing this get your entry in soon.
Exponential Performance Coaching Training Tip of the week
In the final few weeks before an event, practice running through your race plan while you are training. Work through what you are going to be doing on race day and practice different aspects of this so that come race day everything should be automatic.
