On Saturday 1st April, the North Wales Endurance Development Group met at Canolfan Brailsford, Bangor University for the latest Regional Training Day and were joined by guest coach, GB athlete Charlie Hulson.
Charlie took the guys on a 2 mile warm up run to the Treborth Athletics Track, home of Menai Track and Field Club, where the Group were greeted by two more GB International athletes, Cari and Iolo Hughes.
After a series of warm up drills, Coaches John Messum and Neil Edwards put the troops through a progressive interval session, before they all retreated with a 2 mile cool down run, heading back to Bangor Uni.
After a break for lunch, the athletes were introduced to former Commonwealth Games Weightlifting Gold Medallist Ray Williams. As Head of the Welsh Weightlifting Team, Ray is all too familiar with the demands of elite level competition, he enthralled and inspired the Group as he led them through an enjoyable and energetic circuit training session, providing excellent information for the athletes to take away as part of their strength and conditioning education.
Another exceptional day of training and learning as our young athletes continue with their athletic careers.
