After a long 20hr trip we finally arrived at our training base
Radovljica, Slovenia. When we got here it was pouring down with rain.
It was so nice to see water falling out of the sky again. I just
wanted to jump out of the bus and baptize myself, coming from Pretoria
I haven’t seen rain in months now.
I woke up the next day nice rested from the long travel. All the
athletes went for an amazing swim in the 50m swimming pool. When you
look up to the clock you see forest and mountains surrounding us. Now
that’s the way to start a day of training!
I was very glad to see that my bike had made the trip in one piece and
that my CycleOps power meter is working.
I didn’t join the group for a ride as I am keeping to my usual
training program and also trying to be a bit rested for this weekend’s
race. I just took my bike out to have a look at the town. Then in the
afternoon I went for a run along the river.
We going to be here until Friday and then we head of to Tiszaujvaros,
Hungary were I am going to race my first World Cup. I am so keen to
It’s so hard not to go out and train in the amazing mountains before
my big race this weekend. Oh well, I still have 7 weeks here to do all
the training that I want.
Here are some photos of my new town and my house.
