Despite poor weather conditions on Sunday (November 20th) the South Wales’ Regional Endurance Day was a big success. The day saw 51 attendees from the South Wales Regional AC secondary school’s cross country, 14 of which were non-club athletes with a direct exit route into local south Wales clubs.
Coaches Arwyn Davies and Paul Darney both ran a practical session in the morning, followed by two workshops in the afternoon. Arwyn ran two workshops on his training philosophy, nutrition planning and preparation, while Paul ran two workshops on the long-term athlete development specifically looking at European Champion, Jake Haywards progression.
A big thankyou to Bridgend AC for allowing Welsh Athletics to use their facility and thank you to all who took part in what turned out to be a great day.
