After World Championships in Russia and Pan Am Games in Toronto, I now take a good three weeks completely off training. The reasons are to recover, regenerate and also to have some perspective on the season I just had. It's when you step back a little bit that you can see the big picture, not when you are all focus on this or that particular aspect of your game. Those three weeks are also there to regenerate the thirst of fencing and training. With all the training and the travelling for tournaments, we get a bit tired of fencing after eleven months straight. I don't really like to stop training and stop fencing but it is very beneficial for every athlete so I am counting the minutes I “can” go back to training. I am also very satisfied of the season that I had. I started to win big bouts in world cups and during all season, I was actually giving the best of me instead of always under performing. I found the routine and the preparation I need to do to go into the zone where I am very comfortable and loose in my fencing. Can't wait to go back to training and start competing to secure my Olympic Team selection.
