Lee Valley Get-Together
21 October, 2012
Thirty athletes met at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in North London on Saturday 20 October for a post season Get-Together.
After an introductory session with Dame Kelly looking back at the 2012 season, the athletes completed various different training sessions in the morning, including a tough circuit session with Kelly.
In the afternoon the athletes participated in various educational workshops. Broadcaster and journalist Sybil Ruscoe led a workshop on using social media effectively, looking at the benefits and pitfalls of Twitter and Facebook. They discussed good and bad examples within the world of sport as well as looking at their own usage.
Sports psychologist Dr Anna Waters followed up her goal setting workshops from earlier in the year with a review session where the athletes reflected on what went well or not so well in the 2012 season and how they can learn, build on it and make changes for next year.
