We are very excited that Waino and Dani have announced they are expecting their first baby in May 2015. Dani is feeling good and the pregnancy is going along nicely. We are really looking forward to witnessing the amazing path these two amazing people will take to parenthood and to meeting little baby Matthews.
Waino is heading up a run technique coaching series that was kicked off last week. Session 1 of a 3 part series highlighted the goals of efficient running. Working on posture, hip lead/lean and muscle recruitment. If you think you could benefit from some run technique coaching please let us know. Here is Waino’s latest article: The running movement primarily occurs in one direction or plane of motion. Yet, have you ever finished a run session and experienced sore adductors (muscles on the inside of your thigh)? http://owainmatthews.com/2014/10/24/runners-are-you-thinking-laterally/
Waino is heading over to WA to Busso for Ironman this week. He has been training and racing really well and is set to have a solid race. We will be cheering loud back here for Waino and the team!
Australian Ironman Preparation weekend:
We will be having our training weekend for those preparing for Port Macquarie Ironman on Sat 22nd and Sun 23rd March 2015. More details will come.
Jindabyne Training Camp:
We are looking forward to heading down to Jindy for our yearly Summer Camp from 3rd – 10th Jan 2015. We have a full house and a great bunch of athletes ready to enjoy the daily swim, bike, run sessions.
Triathlete /Masters Camp Details: Saturday 13th December (9am - 3pm TBC)
Cost = $200 (Only Freestyle will be covered for Tri/Masters Day Camp) Venue for both camps: Loretto Normanhurst. Who will be running/attending the camp: Swimming Technology Research Founder and Director Dr Rod Havriluk will be traveling over from America to run his highly successful camp structure in Sydney. Information about Dr Havriluk and his program can be found: http://www.swimmingtechnology.com/ Australian Institute of Sport Swimming Biomechanists will be on deck every day assisting Dr Havriluk. Australian Institute of Sport and New South Wales Institute of Sport scientists, nutritionists, strength and conditioning coaches and sport psychologists will provide guest presentations to the swimmers after lunch.
Why is this camp different to other swimming camps: Dr Havriluk not only provides swimmers with another view on technical skills and drills, but he also highlights how the principles of physics assist swimmers in generating propulsion. Dr Havriluk will be bringing along his force analysis system 'Aquanex' and capturing force data and video footage on all swimmers who sign up. Swimmers will have access to their own data as well as receive feedback on technique cues that they need to work on in order to generate more power whilst swimming. A still image example of Aquanex is attached.
Coaches and parents are also more than welcome to sit in on all activities throughout the week. If you would like any further information or would like to express interest in participating, please email myself firstname.lastname@example.org
