Mike’s busy. Mike is undertaking research at Loughborough University focused on leadership development in Elite Sports Organisations as well as advising businesses in the sports market through his business Interval Sports (www.intervalsports.com). Mike uses his 25 years of experience from growing businesses from £2m to £6om to help others achieve their aims. All this takes place alongside a normal (i.e. "hectic") family life.
Training and racing are an important part of his life so when it comes to training Mike finds he really has to focus on what is needed to be done, to maximise the benefit from the hours he puts in and ensure he sticks to his training plan. Aside from triathlon Mike is keen Cross Country runner and time triallist.
This Year: For 2018 Mike has a fixed programme of events targeting ETU Championships and National Championships in triathlon, duathlon, and cross duathlon, with an aim to get a Top 10 in the National Champs and Top 20 in Euro Champs in all disciplines. The Tour of Cambs Chrono / TT is also on the cards again having qualified and raced the World Amateur TT Champs in Perth in 2016. The trick will be finding the balance between getting the right training done and managing what will be another very busy year.
