The session was so popular that it was delivered in 2 sessions with attendees booking on either morning or afternoon slots. The session was attended by middle distance athletes & coaches from various clubs with Sale Harriers being present in large numbers.
Jenny and Trevor discussed race preparation, coping with nerves, overcoming barriers, the team that surrounds athletes and the role everyone plays towards supporting development. Jenny and Trevor also discussed Jenny's learning curves that she developed over her career that started at the age of 7.
Jenny & Trevor are great friends of the club and we are thankful to them both for sharing their knowledge and experience with us. Dave Marsh said of the workshop "Jenny is a great role model to young athletes & has been a brilliant mentor to some of the kids I coach, always being there to offer support and advice."
