Skiing, Karate and rowing!
What a few weeks this has been. Since my last blog, I have been on a 10-day training camp to a place called Solda, in Italy.
We were not able to train on the first 2 days, as there was too much snow, but we did get to ski some amazing powder, on my first pair of powder skis!
The rest of the camp was awesome, the snow conditions were perfect for speed training and we got some great training in. It was so great to feel confident on my Super-G skis again. This camp was also the first time that I got to be coached by Jo Riding who has now joined our team as (another!!) coach.
We are so lucky to have such fantastic support, thank you to Hammy and Jo for your coaching!
I am now back into the swing of dryland training, I’m back to rowing, gym, Zumba and karate. Our next camp is out in Mammoth, USA on the 6th of December with our first race on the 17th, wish us luck!
Since coming home from Italy, I have also competed in my first ever karate competition!
I competed in 2 events: kata and kumite (fighting) . Unfortunately, I got knocked out in the first round of kata to the eventual winner.
Kumite, however, went much better. There were not enough people in my category so I got put into the brown belt and above category which meant I ended up having to fight my coach…as you can imagine she won! Somehow though, I did manage to win a bronze medal!
