After an exceptionally busy two months I enjoyed the last weekend at home this weekend. It has been great to not have to live out a bag and be in one place for more than a couple of days!
Cape Town was met by some unseasonably hot temperatures over the weekend. The mercury hit 36C, with not a breath of wind.
Exceptionally unusual for April when autumn usually starts to set in. I’ll take the heat over the cold and rain any day though so I wasn’t complaining.
Something I also realised over the weekend is that I haven’t done a proper full training week since the beginning of February!
The schedule has been: race, recover, sharpen, race and then repeat. I think I’ve maintained decent form through the period though so I am happy with it.
The training I have been doing is gearing up for my next challenge.
The Old Mutual joBerg2c which kicks off next week Friday.
I will be partnering up with Hanco Kachelhoffer and we will be racing the nine day stage race under the Karan Beef banner.
It will be my first time at joBerg2c and to say I am excited would be an understatement.
I’ve heard many favourable reviews of the race and with Hanco and I in good shape, we have set our goals high. Our secret weapon will be eating Karan beef steaks every night, high in protein and iron!
