How are you dealing with being locked inside your house? Mentally and Physically.
So mentally I am doing great with the lockdown. Everyone around me is positive. We all are motivated to get through this. My coach gives me great training to keep my spirit high whilst on the indoor trainer. Physically I am also doing great. We are fortunate enough to stay on a rather large piece of land, and we have more than enough to keep us busy. I also have an awesome, self-built workshop in my garage where I can keep myself quite busy.
What positives are you taking from this lockdown?
I am super positive. The time spent on the indoor trainer has also been a great exercise and motivation to focus on staying positive through tough times.
What do you miss most about the trails?
Although I miss the trails, I really miss the traveling and time spent with the team much more.
Are there any skills that you are learning in this time?
So there is some skills I am trying to learn in this lockdown. The first is my cappuccino art. Secondly I am training my core strength and working on my balance. Lastly, my welding skills as my dad and I put up a steel parking roof where he teaches me all he knows about welding.
Fitness and Skill. How are you keeping up?
I think my fitness is going on strong. I am doing my training just as it is uploaded so that is great for me. I think my skills are taking a few shots, if I have to be totally honest.
You live with your family on a plot in Potchefstroom. How is this time opportunistic for quality family time?
This is some great time to spend with family. We are making the most of it . Myself and my dad were rather busy for the entire 3 weeks already and we have a lot to do still, so I am enjoying this.
What ride are you going to do when you get to ride outside? Distance, terrain and goal?
Well when the lock down ends I might do a long ride on the indoor trainer just for the joke. I also won't mind doing my favourite loop around Potchefstroom.
What is your next racing goal?
My next racing goal is to race whatever comes first, to go for the win and just to enjoy being able to do what I love after looking forward to it for so long.
