Introducing to you our very own Antarctic Worm Researcher and all-round lover of penguins, Maddie Brasier
Maddie joined TOWTR earlier this year having just returned from the Antarctic, spending quite a few months on a ship, where running really wasn’t an option... For Maddie, team sports have played a big part in her life and as such, she has kept herself fit, however, she had never, ever done any formal run training...mwahahahah!
During her first few weeks I adapted the sessions slightly for her. I could see how competitive she was (with herself) and needed to be sure she didn’t push too hard and put herself at risk of an injury. Equally, her body was being asked to work in a way that it hadn’t before, so I needed to be sure that there was controlled progression...and boy has Maddie progressed!
Maddie’s running form, along with her pace and endurance have improved significantly. She is now pushing our lead runners, which is a positive for them and herself.
Added to this, she has become an integral part of the group, made new friends, made us laugh, she’s even got her boyfriend out running and we’ve all learnt A LOT about worms!
Great work Maddie and thank you for giving TOWTR a go! #running #strengthandconditioning #friendship #makingnewfriends #tryingstuff #pb #blackandwhitephotography #runcoach @madsbrasier #blueplanet #antartica
