Event notes
PNSW is offering marathon paddlers the opportunity to start your 2019 campaign with a useful set of baseline data, together with an integrated analysis of what you need to do to be the best you can be in the coming season. Testing will commence on Saturday after lunch and continue through to Sunday lunch time.
The program is modelled on the work done by Margi Böhm with the Emerging National Team and National U18 marathon paddlers towards putting Australia back on the podium at World Championships. It is informed by her knowledge of kayak and paddle physics, paddler biomechanics, knowledge and information gleaned from world champions, their coaches and physios and tested through her coaching in sprint and marathon.
The TrainSmart program is not just about collecting a bunch of numbers that are meaningless to you or your coach. What you also get is an integrated analysis of your data within a performance model based on marathon canoe/kayak biomechanics, kayak and paddle physics pitched at your level, age group or division. The beauty of using TrainSmart to inform your training program is that it provides a framework for effective training towards improved performances.

Most club level coaching programs treat all participants the same. We are not the same and in a sport like marathon where there are many factors that interact in a complex way, standardised training goals and emphasis can only prepare you so far. The TrainSmart program provides a holistic view of your current strengths and weaknesses which can then be used to develop appropriate training emphasis towards helping you be the best you can be.

So .. if you want to be the best you can be in 2019, think about being part of TrainSmart. The costs for this weekend is $200. The cost does not include accommodation and food. A minimum of 4 paddlers is needed to run the program.
