Sometimes it can be difficult to find motivation for a long run. Mine was 1.30 this morning, and after yesterdays 4 hours bike and run training my legs felt a bit tired… The weather is fantastic for running at the moment, this morning no wind, 7 degrees, and sunspells in between some cloudy periods. I put my Asics DS Trainer on, and Maxim gel in my pocket, a small water bottle and there I went.
I got so hooked to the arrangement in Abu Dhabi, that i have decided to organize “Abu Dhabi race tour” in March 2012. The date is not decided yet, but the month is sure. The race in itself was really good and pro-organized, and Abu Dhabi as a destination, is really a good place for a trip/holiday in March. It is just so fantastic to see the developement in the area, and also to combine it with some days in Dubai. I really liked it, and I have been around a lot, so it takes a lot to impress me !
I think that many of the big stars of our sport will be there next year also, and that just add´s to the fun.
So come 2-3 days before and stay a week, and enjoy the nice and warm Emirates weather. And how do you register yourself?
Fantastic race … I won my agegroup and had a day where all was working good.
So could not have been a better race check out some cool shoots !!!!!
…from www.abudhabitriathlon.com , 3 swim, 200 k bike, 20 run, here we go!!!!!
My race here in Abu Dhabi was not really planned long time ago, but I decided with my coach like 3 weeks ago to participate into it. Now I feel really great about the decision. I really look forward a good racing day, and again, it is nice to see how the training I did during the winter has given me endurance and strength for this race, I will push hard and do a good race!
Here Is my top 10 list for you, if you go to race “off season in a hot hot place” , just in my opinion, important last week preparation tips,:
Here I am far in the Emirates, and Abu Dhabi. Have to say that pretty cool place to race. Why? I tell you; big city (about 1 mill inhabitants) lots of traffic, a big mix of beautiful buildings both modern and ancient, sheiks walking around in the white “dresses” dry heat, like 35 celcius, warm wind, if any, and the best; friendly and helpful local people.

Getting home from 2 weeks trainingcamp down in south, is always more or less a challenge: the temperature change, training load change, normal everyday routines come in again, getting the work done etc. etc. But home is of course always sweet home, the only thing is… the weather… and in Denmark this year it looks like the weather is staying cold, and the winter is remaining, and the temperatures are staying low… so training inside is a keyword this winter … But the last 2 weeks I got lots of great training done on Playitas, and all that was outside
