Coucou aux amis français, merci d’être venu sur mon site et bienvenu ! J’ai passe quelques jours supers a Serre Che la semaine dernière, et c’était un vrai plaisir de vous voir, merci ! En avril on fera du ski ensemble ! Passe une très bonne saisonne, je pense qu’il neigera beaucoup (Anna l’optimiste !). Je pars bientôt a Kimberly, Canada, faire un stage de ski… j’apprendrai à skier très vite! Alors, bonne saison a tous, et a bientôt !

My school friend Lizzie has been a star putting us up, and the skiing's been amazing. We were spoilt with snow and have skied in perfect conditions for the last few days on Verbier's varied, wide, flowing slopes. I've enjoyed seeing the tracks through the powder left by the extreme elite! I'll be up there soon!
I spent Wednesday training with the adaptive instructors from European Snowsport and the head coach, Gemma, has spent a lot of time with us over the past few days which has been great experience. It's always good to get a few pointers from a professional and ski the mountain with a local! Many thanks to European Snowsport for all your help.
Mountain Air and No 1 Sports Verbier have helped me out with ski kit, so I'm now on some fatter skis which has enhanced my skiing in the powdery conditions. Many thanks, it's much appreciated.
We're leaving for Serre Chevalier this morning. I did seasons there and am looking forward to skiing some familiar terrain and catching up with old friends. It's a shame to leave Verbier, however I shall follow Coach's advice and challenge myself on varied terrain. Training must continue!

BIATHLON COMPLETED! Today I hand-cycled 15km (we took a detour!) and for 13 of them I only had 3 speeds; very slow but quite hard work; slow but hard work; and the most fun, fast (downhill)! The gears breaking at the start made it all the more challenging. It took 1hour 26 minutes.
The 1km swim went a little more smoothly, but I'm feeling it today! Many thanks to Middleton Pool, Newport Pagnell who gave me the use of the pool.
