Team Brexit to run faster for longer

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - JAMES PASLEY

The train­ers might be feel­ing good, but there’s more work to be done.

Tepid Baths team leader Chevi Lam­bert and trainer Josh Sa­muela are do­ing their best to push Team Brexit to its limit.

Their job is to pre­pare the team for the 45th Ports of Auck­land Round the Bays fun run on March 5.

When we first met Sinead Lough­nane her goal was to com­plete the 8.4 kilome­tre run with­out stop­ping, while Si­mon Collins and Ian Benet were keen to run the race un­der 40 min­utes.

Chevi and Josh said it’s through the Tepid Baths’ run club that the team will reach their goals.

On Tues­day morn­ings the run club puts on sprints and drills to im­prove speed, and on Wed­nes­day morn­ings the club goes for a long dis­tance run to work on en­durance.

Ev­ery week the run club’s dis­tance and in­ten­sity builds to en­sure the team con­tin­ues to im­prove.

Chevi, 36, be­came in­ter­ested in train­ing when she was in re­hab af­ter a sky­div­ing ac­ci­dent 10 years ago.

For Josh, 25, it was rugby league pre-sea­son train­ing that got him in­ter­ested in the body’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Josh said the big­gest hur­dle Team Brexit could face is an in­jury.
