A Great Experience

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I’ve finally come to the end of my stay here in subic bay. Its been exactly 8 weeks since I left home and it has been my longest trip away thus far. My stay at Subic Bay hasn’t always been smooth, I’ve learnt the hard way how to juggle a full training load with daily work and seeing to my meals, laundry etc.

I’ve had a few painful experiences here but nothing too hard that I could not handle. I am now better prepared to take care of myself. I belive I have matured much as a person and as an athlete.

Its been an amazing start to my journey and I await the future with bated breath…..

It’s been four weeks since I left home and I have already learnt so much about triathlon. These four weeks has opened my eyes to what triathlon REALLY is about, not what people THINK it’s about. I’ve learnt what PROPER training is, and what isn’t. I see how REAL pro triathletes train and live.
Apart from triathlon I’ve learnt alot in the bike shop working as an apprentice mechanic. I now can do quite a few things properly thanks to the help of Azmil the mechanic here in TBB Subic bay. I’ve also learnt to do some simple cooking and to handle my own accounts(something I have never done before) It hasn’t been easy .And I know it’s going to get much harder, but this is a life of a pro athlete. Or in my case, a life of a development athlete :)
