Filmed at Perisher, in Australia’s Kosciuszko National Park (not Atkinson’s usual training ground), this clip illustrates the importance of being able to adapt to your circumstances, no matter your vocation.
“It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, you get up and still have to train every day,” says Atkinson. “The conditions and the circumstances only make you tougher. Even if you’re out of your element, you still have to train.”
Whether you’re a triathlete or not, you can’t argue with that.
