This year will be marked as a Championships year in my books Meaning that I will go for the Danish and World Championships in different distances and I of course will go for a good position in these races:-)
Last year was full of unpleasant happenings and things; accident in the beginning of the summer, cast around my arm almost 2 months, smashed bike, no races… Mentally a tough year. I must say……this time was the hardest of the all….this time I had my doubts, if I was ever coming back.
I still carry the scar from the accident, I still dont feel that part of my leg, and my arm is not back to normal.
The worst is the feeling when I go for a ride. When a car comes by me, with high speed and a little close, my body goes tight.
But I worked, i got good help, and I worked even harder, and all the training, that I got done in the autumn, showed to be a correct kind of training and I did what I had been dreaming and working for: a qualification spot to Hawaii/Kona 2013. I was racing in Florida Ironman in November, did my personal best, and was back on the right track
So I tell you, keep your back straight, lift your head up high, and dont let anyone or anything push you away form your dreams.
So this summer will look like following:
Mallorca 70.3 in the middle of May
ITU Long Distance World Champs in Belmont/France in the beginning of June
Ironman Klagenfurt in the end of June, just for the fun of it……
Danish Champs in half Ironman in the beginning of July
Las Vegas, World Champs in 70.3 (depends ofcourse of Mallorca race and the quali spot)
Kona Hawaii World Champs 13. October
What a dream year, I am really grateful, that I can plan like this, and look forward to meet go people, race fair and just see how far I can go, how deep I can reach, and where that takes me
Did you already make your raceplan… if not, well… it is time…
