English National Championships
Posted by thepeteplan on January 31, 2011
7 people in the BIRC to Boston training group that I have been coaching took part in the English national championships yesterday. Still 3 weeks prior to the end of the 12 week training programme, the results were impressive. 3 gold medals, 1 silver medal, 1 bronze medal, 1 British Record, a number of personal best times, and 5 of the 6 who raced at the British Championships just 10 weeks ago improved on their times, some by a big margin.
Rod Chinn – 6:48.7, 2nd 50-59H (6:51.1 at BIRC)
Carol Woodward – 7:39.9, 1st 50-59L (7:46.7 at BIRC)
Jef Hutchby – 6:55.9, 4th 40-49L (6:56.7 at BIRC)
Alan McGlaughlin – 6:57.7, 22nd 40-49H (7:07.3 at BIRC)
Peter Tullett – 7:05.2, 3rd 50-59L (7:07.0 at BIRC)
Jen Howse – 7:21.4, 1st 30-39H (no BIRC race)
Joanna Allsebrook – 8:02.9, 1st 40-49L (8:02.8 at BIRC)
Well done to all of them for putting in very good race times, and to the 3 new English champions, and Carol for setting a new British Record. It’s looking good with 3 weeks to go before the World Championships.
