WHAT THE ATHLETES SAY ABOUT DAI'S COACHING................
|I contacted Dai at the start of the year. I had a long standing ambition to complete an Ironman, and was contemplating Ironman Wales no less. Having only owned a road bike for a month, having never ran more than around 10miles and having only ever swam for fitness, I thought he would say I was mad! However the reply I received back couldn't have been more positive!
The following 8 months were an amazing journey. Training was set and structured around my work and lifestyle, always with huge support from Dai, always at the end of the phone or an email. Whenever any doubts or questions set in, he was always there to reassure and push me on. There were so many firsts... First 1hr, 2hr, 3hr training sessions etc, first swim/bike/run continuous sessions, first triathlon entered and completed (Dai even entered this with me!), first open water swim, the list goes on.
The training days completed with Dai were in amazing settings around the Beacons, and are sessions which stand out and will stay with me for a long time. The most amazing mountain roads, stunning scenery, tough challenging climbs, and hardly seeing another soul for hours on end...
The end result was me completing Ironman Wales over an hour quicker than even my absolute best scenario, and enjoying every second of my first Ironman experience. It was the perfect end to a year that will stay with me forever, and I'm confident that I would never have achieved what I did without the help, support and guidance from Dai.
I can't wait to start my next phase of training and to see what next year brings :)
