Dean Morgan, Sam Wood, Charles Dunne and Anthony Stewart stormed home to take gold as the Olympics came to Wanderers’ training ground – but it wasn’t all fun for Gareth Ainsworth’s men.The squad were once again pushed hard and were split into teams of four for a relay competition with an 800m race, two 400m and two 200m sprints deciding the winners.
Ainsworth has introduced double sessions for the first week back, as well as the dreaded Yo-Yo Test, and Blues’ boss says he is happy with the shape his players have returned in.
“The lads have come back fit,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “We had a programme over the summer that they had to stick to and it looks like the majority have stuck to it.
“We’re young, but we’re fit and we’ve got legs. People said last year that we’ve got legs and I want to work on that and optimise that.
“We have some fit lads and hopefully we can work teams harder and be better in the second halves because of our fitness next year.
“It’s all about the intensity and I think there are a few tired legs.”
