First of all I'd like to thank everybody for taking the time to read my blog. It's great to have positive feedback on what I've been writing and it's extremely gratifying to know that people are enjoying what I'm putting on here. I'll try to post regularly but I don't want to fill the pages with mindless dribble about things that most of you won't care about.
I'm currently on a break from training. I think breaks are super important for athletes as it gives the body a chance to rest and it also recharges those mental batteries that can deplete over extended periods of training. My break hasnt been that relaxing though as I've swapped my training equipment for text books to get me through my uni exams this week. As most triathletes that study can relate, I'm trying to fit in a whole semesters worth of information into one week. I'm looking forward to finishing exams so I can really enjoy my break by catching up with friends and heading out for a few beers and enjoying other things that I give up for most of the year. I'm heading to the snow in a couple of weeks too which I can't wait for. Ive never snowboarded so I'm not really really sure what I've gotten myself into (stay tuned). I'm going to Perisher and staying in Jindabyne so I might even manage to sneak in a few high altitude running sessions.
This morning I had the opportunity to have a meeting with Glen Duggan from VoloSport. Glen is a sports manager who I'm very excited to be working with and I'm looking forward to the future with Glen's wealth of experience and expertise. Glen managers other athletes such as Liz Blatchford, Ashleigh Gentle, Ollie Whistler, John Polson and open water specialists Trent and Codie Grimsey to name a few. He is leading me in a direction that will hopefully gain me more exposure and fingers crossed I'll be able to attract some potential sponsors and I can stop racing and training in borrowed gear (I used my mums race shorts at Huskisson long course).
I'm also in the process of mapping out next seasons races. I'm excited about what next season can hold for me. But more of that later, I don't want to use all my ammunition in one blog post.
That's about all from my end,
