Last time I posted on here I was just about to compete in the 2017 Laser Nationals. It’s been nearly four months since then so I thought it was about time I posted again. The summer was very hard for me and one I learnt a lot from but also an experiance I don’t want to have again. The toughest things change people and I feel like I have grown from the experiance. I can still take the positives away from something that was pretty negative.
So where am I now? In Sydney after finishing the last of three seperate training camps over here, 5 weeks in all. This last one was pretty race focused as we get ready to fly to France for the World Cup in Hyeres. I didn’t do Palma this year, the first time in 3 years but I don’t mind that. Actually I’m hoping the extra time at home is going to keep me fresh enough to really perform for this relatively short trip to France, Italy and Holland. It’s been a bit of an up and down experiance flying back and forth from WA so often and getting a handle on myself and the new WAIS staff that are coming in. Like I said, all learning which is what the whole experiance is about anyway.
I’m really looking forward to being back in Europe racing again. I always feel a good sense of focus when I’m there and having been to Hyeres four times before, it’s not nearly the foreign land it once was. I’ll keep you more up to date as the year unfolds.
