Armitstead claims second to maintain her World Cup lead

Lizzie Armitstead admitted it would be tough but she still claimed another podium finish at women's Flèche Wallone race in Belgium.
The Olympic road race silver medallist won the opening World Cup round, the Ronde van Drenthe, then placed second in the two subsequent events, the Trofeo Alfredo Binda and Tour of Flanders.
And another second place finish, a couple of bike lengths behind France's Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, maintained her lead of the overall World Cup standings with five races remaining. Sweden's Emma Johansson remains her nearest rival.

Transition from a Gi : Back to the grind

Transition from a Gi : Back to the grind

Last week saw the return to regular training following the prior fortnight of rest and recovery. After what has amounted to about 6 weeks (due to the competition schedule) without any real strength and conditioning, it hurt to get back in the gym, but has been great to be wrasslin’ folks again.
For at least the next few months my weekly training schedule is going to include-
2-4 technical sessions
1-2 randori
2-3 strength
2-3 conditioning
The judo block at the moment is fairly low intensity, and is a chance to make and work through technical and tactical developments, before the intensity increases in as the Commonwealth Games gets closer. Gym-wise is going to be similar, with a lot of volume at first and ramping up as the tournament looms larger on the horizon. Unfortunately this seems to mean there is going to be a lot if time spent on the rowing machine, by far the most depressing part of training!
The cadet tournament, Sportif International, took place at the weekend, and clubs from Germany and Portugal sent some strong young players over to compete, and also took part in a few wild randoris with JudoScotland. The coaches who brought the teams over were massive names from fairly recent judo history, Yvonne Boenisch (Olympic champion in Athens) and Mario Schendel (Bronze Paris tournament), whilst one of my heroes (along with Shane Authers and Alexsei Budolin) from when I was a youngster Nuno Delgado (Olympic Bronze and European champion) was coaching the Portuguese. If you are unaware of who any of these guys are, they are definitely worth a quick search on youtube, some big throws to be found.
Finally, it is the European Championships this weekend, so good luck the everyone from British Judo fighting!
