Since last time I wrote, not all that much has happened, which I’m pretty happy about. I was kept busy, but by doing things that I wanted to do, I almost felt like an average 20 year old for a while there. I was still training as normal but just made the most of my spare time, which meant for some early morning and late night sessions. One day had a 16hour gap from waking up to start my first session and finishing my last, this I wouldn’t recommend doing regularly but for a one off I think it’s not so bad. It was actually quite nice finishing a run at 9.45pm on a warm summer’s night. Launceston is a great place to train with some of my favourite locations in the world to swim ride and run so I always look forward to being there and doing some work. The only bad thing about being at home is that it always goes too quickly.
I had just over two weeks at home between the first Falls camp and the second, which would be the first time the whole squad had been together in a training environment since Leaving Vitoria. Soon enough, it was time to make the trip back up to Falls Creek to join the rest of the Wizards. Unfortunately I had to spend my 21st birthday driving myself up the mountain, so not your typical 21st birthday, although Alexis Lepage did make me a cake – wild.
It is nice to have someone to train with regularly again; sessions always seem easier when you have company, especially when it’s cold and wet outside. The mountainous weather has not been very favourable to us yet so here’s hoping it’ll improve soon!
2016 could potentially be a very big year for me and now it has finally begun, training is starting to feel a bit more serious as the days tick by and I’m looking forward to pushing things and see what I can make of the year ahead.
