One of Britain’s top Iron ladies, Lucy Gossage, will be joining us at Tri Camp from 11-18th March. The UK and Ironman Wales champion will be taking part on some of the rides and runs and will be offering advice and tips on going long. If you fancy coming for week of triathlon training and coaching and meeting and picking Lucy’s brains while you’re there then let us know – only 7 places left!
Nick Dunn, Tri Camp Head Coach, father of two and Achilles injury expert has written his first ever race report and so I guess it's fitting that this report should be on his motivation, inspiration and dedication to winning his second World Championship title in London 2013.

“Remember it's a marathon not a sprint. Actually it's not just a marathon, there's a swim and a massive bike, but you already know all this!”
– words of encouragement from fellow Tri Camp team member Rob Brundish (fresh from his 8hr39 IM). Right, Ok. He also promised me “You’ll LOVE it Heath, you’ll love it!” I no longer trust Mr Brundish. It seems, he lies.....
I was going to write a mid-season report 2 weeks ago, but then decided I’d wait until after the British Champs which was my last planned race (after 11 weeks of racing!) before London World Champs. Well, how feelings change! 2 weeks ago I was 1st female overall at Stowe triathlon and chuffed to bits… 1 week later at British Champs I was left enjoying a 72 hr pity-fest about my performance. From high to very low in 1 week!

You've been there, you've had a good swim, you're feeling strong, you run into transition and can't find your bike! You know you put it there just a couple of hours ago and yet you can't see it for toffee. A frustrating few minutes later you finally spot it and you get on with stripping off your wetsuit and pulling on your helmet. You run out to the mount line, jump on your bike and try to get your feet in your shoes only to find that you've left some spare saftey pins/rubber bands/gels in there and so you waste more time fishing these out before you can really get going. Sound familiar? We've all got our own transition nightmare stories so after years of post race chit chat and story sharing, Head Coach Nick Dunn has collated the most common mistakes made in T1 and offers some advice to avoid this happening to you!
