As I mentioned earlier this month, I started working with former Swiss hammer throw record holder Samuele Dazio so that I could get some in-person feedback on technique. In the first month of working with him, I had already made some progress despite only working with him for a session or two at a time. This week I travelled with him and his club, Virtus Locarno, for a week-long training camp in Marina di Peitrasanta, Italy.
The camp has been enjoyable for many reasons. First, I took my first vacation from work since Christmas. After the tax season came and went like a hurricane, this was a welcome break. Second, the I love the Italian eating culture. I’ve trained hard this week, but I still think I spent just as much time in our hotel’s dining room. The multiple course meals go on at a leisurely pace every day, accompanied by a few glasses of wine and a good conversation. In total I think we spend around four hours a day at our long team’s table.
