“Smart execution is more difficult than just racing hard and has a bigger impact on your result. To add to the complexity of this idea, the more fit you get, the harder it is to execute smartly. I’m always reminding my athletes to stay focused on execution, especially the speedy ones.”

2012 Honu Camp: Day 5

2012 HonuCamp Reports   

Day 5? How can it be day 5 already?

2012 Honu Camp is on the way to becoming one of the finest CpC camps to date! Training days 1-4 have been spectacular with 300 miles of riding visiting Hawi and Waipio Valley’s absolutely stunning backroad Old Mamalahoa Hwy. The 14 campers are a fantastic group and as always long lasting friendships are being created. Chef Cindy has been spot on with amazing dinners and desserts. It just doesn’t get any better!

Day 5 brought a real challenge in the form of wind and miles! 136 miles to be exact. The views to Hawi and up the KM road were breathtaking as always but the descent to Waimea had some of the strongest winds I’ve seen here on the big island. Fortunately we were treated to a tailwind on the highroad to Kona.
