MELISSA COURTNEY – The following article was published in Athletics Weekly recently, in which she was interviewed by EILISH MCCOLGAN. I started out as a swimmer. One of my friends from swimming took me along to her athletics club to take part in some ‘land-based training’. I tried everything; hurdles, throws, jumps but middle distance seemed to come most natural to me. From there I did cross country for my local club Poole AC.
I’ve been with my coach, MARK PAULEY, from the age of 12. My Dad also got into coaching as the group began to grow and he’s still involved to this day, both with the group and training programme. During my time at Brunel University, I would dip in and out of sessions with the University group. It meant I wasn’t doing everything on my own and worked really well.
I loved training at Loughborough. Since I moved there I have UKA coached DAVID HAMER and ROB DENMARK overseeing my sessions. Mark sends my programme and they help to link my sessions up with the other girls as possible. It’s the first time I have been able to train with a group of girls. It’s such talented group with ROSIE CLARKE, BOBBY CLAY, KATIE SNOWDEN and KATE AVERY.
I probably moan the most on cross country and hill sessions. I worked hard on my speed endurance last year. It used to be my least favourite part of training but I’ve actually learnt to enjoy it. In the summer, I love a race pace session or something really speedy, like flat out 200m. A session I used to hate was 1km reps on the track but as I’ve got older these type of sessions have become my favourite. I’m even started to enjoy my long runs of 12-13 miles – those I used to really dread.
I don’t tend to taper down much for my indoor races. By the summer, I have done a lot more speed work and race pace. The intensity of my sessions is much harder and so the mileage is reduced throughout the summer months.
Rest is just as important as training. It’s so important not to underestimate recovery; making sure you have rest days planned into your programme in order for you to recover mentally and physically. One piece of advice to younger athletes would be to enjoy the sport as much as they can – have fun with training and racing.
I live with my boyfriend, the decathlete ASHLEY BRYANT. When we met, I had been plateauing at my PB for about five years. I think he really gave me a kick up the bum that I needed to improve. He showed me how hard I needed to work and what it takes to make championships and GB teams. Living together definitely helps, as we both understand that we need to eat healthily, go to sleep early and our lives are focused around training schedules and recovery. It’s important that we know when to switch off athletics and take our minds away from the sport.
When ASH won silver at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, I was in the crowd watching. I couldn’t have been more proud. His moment on the podium definitely inspired me.
My family come to watch nearly all my competitions. Even though I now live in Loughborough, I still get to see my parents a fair bit. Over the winter, I spend quite a few months abroad at high altitude training camps, for about four weeks at a time. It can be hard being away from my family and my boyfriend but I know the sacrifice will benefit my training.
I’ve been to Kenya three times and Flagstaff once. It’s definitely something I’ll continue to include in the future. I really the benefit from altitude training, although it seems to take me a couple of weeks rather than a few days to start racing well.
Making my first senior GB team last year was amazing. I competed at the European Championships in Amsterdam over the 1500m. I was hoping to make the final but unfortunately I didn’t make it through the heats. But it made me more determined to improve on that next time.
My aim this year is to make the GB team for the World Championships in London. I would also like to run the qualifying time to ensure I’m selected for Wales the following year, at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018.

NORTH WEST LONDON LEAGUE – Information on the fourth fixture of five which takes place on Saturday 18 February at Hampstead Heath Extension.
The race courses are all within an area known as Hampstead Heath Extension, off Hampstead Way. This area has not previously been used for cross country running although it is not far distant from the much loved and often used Parliament Hill Fields. The courses devised by London Heathside within the Extension area should work well for young athlete events being closely confined and spectator friendly. The slight drawback is that there is no car parking within the parkland area and some of the nearby roads have restricted parking. Car sharing or better still use of public transport is advised. (Golders Green Underground Station is about half mile). To assist you in getting to the park area the postcode for SatNav users is (NW11 7DP)
The first race will start at 12 noon (Under 11 Girls) – programme will then follow the usual pattern. There are changing rooms with toilets are available.
Note: You do not have to be pre-entered, just turn up and run. Will any of our Female athletes please see TONY SMITH who will give you a race number
