By Michael Cohen

Issue 5 July 2014

In this edition Coach Michael offers us some candid and great advice about how to manage your OCR race calendar, so as to avoid over-training and over-racing, plus the need to slot in rest and recovery periods.

One of the most difficult jobs of being a coach and manager to TEAM Wild Forest Gym elite OCR racing team is ending up parenting 8 excitable OCR racers on top of the three of my own children. So when it comes to each of them just wanting to race, race, race without much thought for the long term planning to achieving their goal, I as coach and manager have to stay STOP! Let’s look at the bigger picture, before they over commit, over-race and over train and just burn out.

By Michael Cohen

Cold Weather & Cold Water Acclimatisation Training

by Michael Cohen

Issue 1

Hundreds of contenders at last winter obstacle race (OCR) events around the country experienced hypothermia. Many were miserable and just cold. Where’s the fun in that! Continue reading
