My first blog , my first Cervelo & arrival in my first camp Krabi

Hey,

So here we go … My first post as a Team TBB member . Yep , a newbie . So new I haven’t even met the Doc in person yet  ( he arrives this arvo ) However I do already know a fair few of my teammates so I don’t feel to out of sorts and I’m looking forward to meeting some of the others when they arrive in Krabi .

I’m not normally the ‘blogging type ‘. Well ,actually maybe I should say  I’m not really  the ” blogging about training ” type  . I guess I’m a little like Jodie in the sense that if I don’t have to think or talk Tri I won’t . Anyway I’ll try hard to make my blogs as non boring as possible !

So a little about the last few months and what has lead me to where I am right now , here in Krabi , Thailand . About 6 weeks ago I was confirmed my spot in Team TBB and ready to start a new phase in my career . I’ve been coming back slowly from a hip op I had late October  . I followed the Doc’s orders , stayed in my home town of Brisbane  and have slowly been building back up to some kind of fitness .  I traveled from Aus a few days ago with a stop in Singapore to Team TBB headquarters to meet up with Alex and the team management  & pick up my new bike beautiful Cervelo S3 !  ( I’m yet to name it ,weird I know but I like to name my bikes ) A big thanks to Azmil our bike mechanic for building it all through the night for it to be ready for me .

It was then on Krabi the next day . I have to say  I was pleasantly surprised with Tiger airlines ! No charges , nice plane , just no fuss ! Unlike Qantas !  Anyway  , Xena , Dave & I arrived  yesterday arvo . I’ve never been to Thailand before . I’ve had many friends and family  who have holidayed here . But I’m not here for a holiday . Far from that . I don’t  even think that we are close to the beach really . Perfect training environment I suppose . A bit dirty but all liveable  . If I look outside my window I can see elephants , cats , dogs , cows  , crazy people on scooters . A very different experience and one I’m very grateful for .

I’m here for 5 or so weeks and I’m looking forward to training under the Doc and with some great athletes . I’m sure I am going to learn a lot !

Until my next blog …
