Road to Rio training camp

After WTS Cape Town, I headed to Stellenbosch for a week long training camp hosted by Triathlon South Africa.

We were accommodated at SAS (Stellenbosch Academy of Sport) which was a superb facility with staff friendliness to make you feel at home and also equipped well enough to train as needed.

It’s been a great week of some solid training. A big advantage for me was that I was, for the first time, training alongside some of the South African able bodied Elite Triathletes. It was not only a honour but also a privilege for them to share their knowledge and experience as I am still relatively new to the triathlon scene.

With a handful of different coaches at our disposal – technique, training advice and just general race tips were readily available. Sometimes hearing the same thing your coach usually tells you just in a different manner from another coach is all it takes for some improvements to things such as swim stroke or hill attacking on the bike.

All in all, it really was an awesome week spent with awesome triathletes and coaches.
I look forward to pushing even harder towards my dream of Rio 2016.

Thank you to Triathlon South Africa for the opportunity. Thank you to Stellenbosch Academy of Sport, and thank you to all of those who support me.
