Review of 2021 season

InBalance triathlete; age group European Champion in standard distance (Valencia, 2021).

The small squad of InBalance athletes all achieved their goals this season, and for some a whole lot more, with improvements race on race. The built in strength and mobility sessions to the weekly programme has meant time lost due to injury has been minimal and the easy weeks after a race or training block has given time for the mind and body to recover, so it is fresh to go again.

This small, diverse squad has achieved so much, in what has been a disruptive 18 months due to Covid. Races cancelled again and again, often at the last minute, but each and every one kept their focus and humour.

We had Ironman and 70.3 finishers , winners of super sprint, sprint and standard distance triathlons. A triathlete that competed in an Ironman and 70.3 within a fortnight and someone you completed an extreme triathlon with a mountain run to finish, plus a junior that competed their first 2km open water swim. September also saw two InBalance triathletes become champions; a European age group champion in standard distance triathlon and a Welsh male Aquathlon Champion.

I feel very grateful to be able to coach, support and mentor such talented individuals.
