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
The camp went after all expectations. The resort is compact and it is just so easy to train, eat, sleep and relax. You just walk down to the pool, or to the sea, or go and do your run, or jump on your bike, or use the facilities in the fantastic fitness center. Could not be easier!
This time we had a pleasure to follow the Danish Triathlon Team in action, as the entire team had their training camp on Playitas. They were 12 of them, Michael Krüger as a teamtrainer.
He had his wife and kids there also, and wife Anja Krüger is a of course also a top triathlet, and it was nice to talk with her, I love to hear how other women train and get fix their lifebalance together with the triathlon.
Helle Frederiksen was there; I had a chat with her, and she is in her life’s condition at the moment. She feels so lucky and great to have spent all the winter training down on La Santa in the heat, so no injuries, lots of continuous training, and she feels very confident and very strong to start her races in a month.
Rasmus Henning of course was there, as he is living on the resort all the winter. And no doubt whether his form is where it should be. Neverever before he has been doing such continuous training, specially on the bike, as this year.
There were many other great triathletes as well, just to mention the Petersen-Bach brothers, where Jakob is the younger and his focus in the short distances, very promising results already now. And the big brother Jens, racing on the long distances with great results as well. These guys you will definitely hear more about, in the coming years …
I just feel for myself, it is always motivating to train together with some great and motivated triathletes, it gives me just so much motivation for my own actions. And the next one is already soon there: Abu Dhabi in 12 days… Here we come!
