As we approach the fourth season for BFunctional and the athletes it works with it is timely to celebrate the progress gained over the previous three years.
Rather than identify the incredible results of each and every athlete for which the list would be long, I’d like to collectively congratulate each athlete on their personal progress in training & performing. You all demonstrate the BFunctional athlete core values of commitment, respect, fun, belonging and belief. As a result, the progress is something to celebrate. Well done #TeamBF
The key athlete achievements in summary are:
Ø IRONMAN World Championships 2015: well-deserved qualification for the hard-fought Kona slots by an athlete who works to the letter of the plan, and her achievements in triathlon and Ultra Running are forever evolving!
Ø European Championships 2017: 3 athletes qualified in respective events to represent the GB triathlon team at the European Middle Distance Triathlon, Denmark in 2017.
Ø IRONMAN & IRONMAN 70.3: a range of athletes from complete novice to national age-group level have competed in IRONMAN & other branded events across all continents of the world!
Most recently, at IRONMAN Wales all 8 athletes competed on target pace or well ahead. In particular, 2 IRONMAN athletes who have both undertaken previous coaching or self-coached improved their overall race time this year by 1hr:33min and 2hrs:04min respectively [that’s over 10% and 14% significant improvement].
Ø National domestic races/adventures/challenges: whether that be a Midnight Mountain Marathon, Channel Swim, Charity 24-hour bike challenge through to completion of a first 5km run the result has been success due to hard work!
Ø Training achievements: meanwhile, through the blood, sweat and tears during training this is where the achievements are determined. Well done for believing in the BF plan and in your ability.
