A weekend with Shanaze!
Us older ones, over 12!! were beasted fitness wise for both days! This turned into a Full on fitness test for me and at 45 years old and newly returning to the sport I think I came away from this weekend with my head high and knowing that I'm not over the hill just yet. In fact the opposite, I came away as did many others inspired to be better, fitter and stronger for 2015. I had a couple of spills in the exercises but learnt another few lessons. To watch the younger elite riders hit the jumps was great to see and something that many don't really appreciate the speed, height and length they are jumping, with the consequences result in potential serious injury.
As for Shanaze Reade she was truly a great coach and brought everyones confidence levels to a real high. As an old boy I was encouraged to Jump further, go faster and loosen up, we were all complimented on things we did well and coached on areas to improve. This was the first coaching session for any sport I'd done in a long time and would do it again tomorrow. Come back soon Shanaze.
