Conditioning Heptathlon


Happy Easter!

I have just come back from Dunedin where I did some testing - specifically a "conditioning heptathlon". Angus has developed a scoring system for 7 gym-based events which are designed to mimic the 7 events of the heptathlon (bearing in mind the fact that I can't use my right foot fully) and equated the scores to match. The conditioning heptathlon gives me something to focus on while I can't compete, adding a competitive aspect to testing at the end of every training block.
