SBTC has been lucky enough to have Patrick Nispel of P.A.T.42.2. Running looking after our Tuesday morning run sessions for several months, now, and over the last couple of weeks has stepped into also lead the Thursday morning run sessions. We are now delighted to announce that SBTC has secured the services P.A.T.42.2 Running as the provider of all running coaching services for the next 12 months. This is a fantastic development, not just because Pat is a great guy to chat to while you are working hard, but because this now means that our Tuesday and Thursday sessions will complement each other. Under this arrangement, Pat will:
- look after BOTH the Tuesday morning (aerobic endurance and tempo running) and Thursday morning session (high intensity interval training)
- develop and implement an annual master training plan with structured training periodization approach around the major events in the SBTC triathlon calendar.
- offer SBTC members a VIP rate for additional P.A.T. 42.2 Running coaching services, such as marathon training plans, video gait analysis, 1-on-1 coaching and personal strength training sessions.
We look forward to seeing as many members as possible benefit from this arrangement, so if you aren’t already get down to the Tuesday and Thursday run sessions. If you are new to the club take a look at Pat’s bio below (and that is Pat in the photo with SBTC President Sonya Stacey).
