I’m currently halfway through the 2012 triathlon season. It’s been mixed but strangely I’m enjoying learning from my mistakes and I’m excited for the progression that’ll come as a result.
This summer I’ve got two training camps sandwiched between two holidays in France which I think achieves the athlete to normal person balance quite well.
I’ve got a BTF talent squad camp next week and then a running camp in London at the end of August. It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks but I cannot wait. Being busy is what I love most.
The Olympics has been distracting though! I had to tear myself away from Tom Daley’s 10m syncro final to go out for my run. It’s proving so inspirational. Every athlete there is amazing whether they’re gold medalists or not, everything I’ve seen so far is so impressive. I just think it’s a shame the focus has been on gold medals for team GB. And the disappointment of not having any at the moment is clouding the stunning achievements of the team so far. I’m not too fussed about the result of the medal table in two weeks time, I’m more fussed about watching some breathtaking performances that every nation has to offer!
