This will have a massive impact on how we perform not just as an athlete but as a human being.To grasp and be a better being does mean we are prepared to take a little time for contemplation! A few moments to be reflective and even the use of a journal to record your own thinking is helpful.Moving from human doing to human Being takes intention. Any change is usually met with resistance.

Just Tattoo of Us

Jun 13 2019

Jono has a recognisable face. So when I saw him again in the bike shop, it was time to introduce myself. At that stage I had no idea if he was some hotshot aristocratic triathlete, or young and aspiring like myself. All I knew was that I had seen his face once before, a month prior at the 2017 KZN Champs. Fortunately he felt the same and introduced himself there and then as Jonathan Stamatis, a fisherman’s son from the South Coast. It turns out he was also buying some last minute gear for the then upcoming SA Champs in...

The Comrades inspires Comradeship

Jun 13 2019

Marguerite King If you love running and you don’t know when to stop, you “run” the risk of signing up for Comrades! So I don’t know and I don’t want to know when to stop....no 5 in the bag and I would like to run as long as I can! Step by step, day, week and year by year, maybe sometimes a case of running away from “chaos”, but it works for me and until it doesn’t work for me anymore, I would love to go back to Comrades every possible year!! Meesha and I started running Comrades together in...

The 1 2 3 4 to SA Champs

Jun 13 2019

When training for a big competition I tend to start envisioning the race up to a month beforehand. I envision the route, how I think my competitors would race (I race against the same competitors quite often) and how I think my body would react during the race /when I should feed etc. I have been priviledged enough to practice the sport that I fell in love with for almost 14 years now, I was a 10 year old little girl in a oversized red T-shirt dreaming big dreams to not so long ago and now fast forwarding to when...

If you have ever been for Lyno therapy otherwise known as 'torture treatment' you will know what I am talking about. The new science is showing that the often dismissed ugly duck may just be the Swan. So bone and muscle have always been what are considered most important when looking at your body operating at optimal and now the 'stuff' pushed aside may just be the stuff we should be giving our attention to...  Not...

ITU Multisport Festival 2019 - Spain Pontevedra

May 16 2019

 I participated in the cross triathlon and long distance triathlon world championships while in Spain. I decided to do both as my main event (the cross triathlon) was first and I had enough time to recover for the long distance event. The cross triathlon had a packed field of pros and the course was really tough. The bike was definitely the toughest aspect as the majority of the course was climbing. I managed to place 8th in the under 23 elites. I wasnt really super chuffed with the result but I was satisfied with the effort I put in. I...
