What Am I Doing in South Africa?

Here’s what I (we) did each day since arriving in Stellenbosch, SA!

Things of note:
• “Bergpad” means our 4k mountain trail run
• “Trappe” means our stadium stairs workout
• It’s about a 25 minute walk to the stadium/mountain/gym from our house and a 10-15 minute walk to the local school for lunch and dinner – not an insignificant amount of travel and walking time but it’s pleasantly enjoyable in good, warm weather and if we’re not in a rush

      Isn’t it beautiful?? And that’s just one of their (multiple) practice fields! The picture with the ball machine is from the Vision Lab / “Innovation Center” at the university’s athletic facilities, where we work on improving our peripheral vision, visual awareness, reaction time, and hand eye coordination! (Think, whack-a-mole on the wall machines.) The machine in the pic was shooting ping pong balls (!!) at different directions, angles, and speeds, and we had to *try* to catch them. At least several hit me in the face each round before I can shield myself from them haha… I mean um, catch them.
