I was there yesterday (also today) Not racing, but this time as support to Michelle Vesterby, who is coached by Frank, my husband, and who I have been a nutrition advisor for, during this year. You learn a lot when racing but you learn also a lot when watching a race… and this is what I will use in my next Kona race First time for me not racing, but watching an Ironman race, strange… but very motivating… I am ready to rock and roll soon
Here we go… only 5 nights to sleep, and your raceday is going on! What can you do and think to be ready for The Day. Watch out, like we say “its all about standing in the startline on the racemorning, and being ready”
I know now one thing, to train for triathlon; run, bike, swim is not for me just training, but it is a very important part of my life. Every time when I am injured, or in accident or sick and cannot train, I promise myself to be back in the races even stronger than before.
If you really are dedicated to something, and want to reach it, it is important not to give up, it is not more difficult than that Like if there is not any swimmingpools open in the area where you are, you can be lucky anyway, if you just continue looking for a swimming place. Like look what I found:
This week I have been a bit around, and visited for instance a beautiful village in the middle of Dolomites, done some good cross-country again in the famous Val di Fiemme valley, where in 2013 the winter World Championships will be arranged. But is cross country good training for triathlon?
