Training so far

by | Jan 20, 2021

This blog starts in the wonderful glacier of Sölden, on the 25th of October. We had a fantastic week here with some amazing GS training and a super fun day of powder too. I really enjoyed Sölden as it had perfect training conditions for what we were working on at the time. Overall, a very good camp and improvements were made.

After a short break at home, with my brand-new home gym set up, we headed back out to Austria again. This camp was in Kaunertal where we had some really productive tech training and although this training block was short, we achieved a lot and gained confidence.

With 6 days off after the Kaunertal camp we were soon back in the mountains, this time we went to the wonderful resort of Davos, Switzerland in preparation for the first Europa Cup races in St Moritz. Training was awesome in Davos, however; I fell a bit poorly (it wasn’t COVID!!) so unfortunately, I had to go home to recover which meant I had to miss the races – this was so frustrating.

With a bit of rest over Christmas I started to feel much better and I am currently back training in Lofer, Austria. We have our first World Cup races in Veysonnaz on the 20th Jan, so training hard.

I am so unbelievably grateful to have a travel exemption so we can continue to train during these very challenging times, thank you to everyone who has helped to enable this. I have a great team behind me, and one in front.

Covid-19 Lockdown

As I sit and contemplate finishing off my University course work, before knuckling down to some serious revision for my end of year online exams in May and June, I’m distracted by the thought of 667 days left before the 2022 Winter Paralympics in Beijing.

World Cup training

So, after a few false starts in getting us all out to our first World Cup training and racing camps in Switzerland, we eventually got going against what seemed like an unlucky streak.
