Normally I use www.ironkaisa.dk to give good advice and a look into the different aspects and levels of triathlon. This time it will be a blog….about my situation and some of the feelings.
So my biggest fear became real.
I heard the a car breaking hard behind me, and in a split second, I was flying over the side of the road, and down a 60 degree mountainside.
I was on Lanzarote, it is a vulcano island, so the rocks are sharp and dry.
Here is the result, or one of them
It is now 5 days ago.
I got ripped in my body, I have no feeling at all ever to go and bike on a traffic road again, and I keep asking why.
I will never get an answer.
on my training ride away from Denmark, riding right after the books on the roadside, pushing well after my friend, to whom I had a distance of 50m as we were on the TT bikes. Empty road… just we 2 and our bikes… suddenly I hear a braking car sound from behind me and think that two cars are about to hit each others, and slam!!!!! The car hit me… from behind!!!
the mistake is 100% of the drivers… I get 21 stitches on the skin on my gluteus muscle… and get wounds and small scratches all over my body… and my thoughts are flying, and I try to work my mind out of this happening, and stay cool…
you can say, shit happens… but it is just not that easy… it is just so needless and unnecessary thing to be happen. But it did, and this is something you cannot control yourself…
Franks says ”life is tuff, it just is. We are so lucky to get so many good moments and periods of easy life, that we sometimes forget, life can be really tuff.
The good part is, that we humans are made to deal with tuff times, and how we handle the tuff times, determens a big part of how we are as persons”.
Well, then I think…….I am tuff, so I will deal with this, and I will come back form this. That I have decided.
But hey…..I am not talking about beeing ok, I am talking about getting back, stronger than ever !
So for now, I have prepared the best ever in the winter, and now it feels to be lost, no racing…..
all I need to have in my mind, is to become 100% ok again. I will take a lot of hard work, but I am not scared of that.
All I hope, is that my body will heal, and let me help it.
In my mind, my food, and in my traning.
this time, I need all the help I can get
also from you, who sometimes gets a good tip or motivation from ironkaisa.dk
send me a comment, an advide, a helping hand, cause this time, it was and is on the limit, as I found out, that my body is not made of iron, but flesh and blood.
still……for all you, going for your summer race these days…..good luck, and……be happy….really be happy, that you have a number and a startline to go to, with your body and mind. Be happy deep down about it .
Take care on the roads, even you can not control it all, do the best you can!
And dear driver………cool down, dont drive to fast. Please.
