COUNTING DOWN…..27 days to go

Training, racing and Life is going fantastically down in the Valley of a Thousand Hills.

The guys have adapted magnificently into the routine of regular hard training. They have engaged the goal of making the top 50 like a missile locked on the enemy target.

It is highly unlikely that everyone feels good at every training session. The problem is that none of them speak up if they are ‘feeling off’ (stomach bug, injury, over-trained).  My biggest hurdle is trying to detect those that are struggling and get them to sit out or take it easy.

Our weekly Wednesday 8km Hi-Tec running time trial saw Eric set a new record. He blended within the pack for 12min, then after running through the tunnel under the dam, surged aggressively into the lead and never looked back.
