Team Brexit to run faster for longer
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.
Chevi Lambert and Josh Samuela have high hopes for Team Brexit.
