EPC athletes at the races
Congratulation to Hannah Thorne who won the open woman's race at the Whaka 100km MTB race in Rotorua this weekend. This race consisted of 100km of single track around Rotorua and came only 3 weeks after her win at the M2M multisport race. Well done Hannah. Check out Hannahs profile at the EPC blog http://exponentialperformance.blogspot.com/
Congratulation to Chris Yeats who despite throwing up several time through out the race came 3rd veteran male in the rail trail bike race. This races covers the full length on the Central Otago rail trail in one big hit. Good luck to Chris this weekend as he takes on the challenging Wild Coaster road race from Greymouth to Westport.

Exponential Performance Coaching training tip of the week
This piece of advice comes from the nasty weather that has just hit Dunedin over the weekend. If the weather is bad outside and you have a specific session set, don't put in off because of the weather. Put on a thermal and jacket and get out the door. Its never as bad as you thought it was going to be once you get out into it. Even if it is to nasty to complete your full session or you have to change it up a bit get out there and spent time in the bad conditions.
Training in rough, windy and wet conditions will make you a lot stronger and confident come race day.
Well done to those who got out on Sunday in the wind and snow you will have one up on those who decided to say inside. Rumor has it there were a few EPC athletes sighted out on the harbor doing their paddle training yesterday, now that's gotta be good for ya.
