You might be the one, who just got done your this season’s race A, and got to be an Ironman. Fantastic! Congratulations with all the hard work and training you did. You were on the startline, free of injurys, you did it! Now it is time for a recover! As it is not when you get an injury, that it came, your body starts the building for it NOW
Ironman Copenhagen is soon not even a week away… Many months of training for many eager, specially Danish triathletes is getting up to the high ends… The race is here soon… So here I list you 10 do’s and don’t’s for the Ironman week, to get your best race ever, …
I am the lucky one to have an opportunity to be with in IM Copenhagen this year…Well actually not really anyway, as I will not participate as individual, but in relay!
I was not thinking about racing it this year, but when I was asked to be a member in PACT team, I just could not say no…
why not ?
This is an association doing so muh good for cancer patients, and I know how it is to be like one… but what is PACT?
Finally I want to say, that a Garmin made a gadget for women…HIGHTEC toy, that is easy to use, and specially if you had a Garmin GPS already before, you just follow the same “lines”…but even more simple way
The heat is going on in DK… The air and the water temperature is higher than any other summer… We triathletes think that it is fantastic!!! BUT, there is some important points for you to remember, when training in this heat. read some points here
We have a nice warm summer in Denmark, and all the Nordic countries. Lots of sun, heat and still late light nights, could not be better, specially for training point of view. Love it!
Because the Crowne Prince Frederik from Denmark, was again showing how strong he is, as he did participate in the half ironman race in Copenhagen, and raced in a good style!
Are you tired in using all the sugar that you normally intake during your training? as it is very fast sugar, and normally stuffed with different artificial flavors and colors.
Unfortunately…but this is what endurance nutrition industry is a lot about: sportsdrinks and gels, and energybars. The fact is, that we need this fast sugar in our training, but is there another choice?
In our lovely Nordic countries, we can right now enjoy the best summertime with long light nights and warm weather. Exactly perfect time to continue the triathlon and running training. As many triathletes, in Denmark at least, are training for the Ironman coming up in the end of August, in Copenhagen, it is still well enough with time to get better in your run condition and your run techniques. What could be ideal to focus on when you run train now?
My absolutely favorite swimming place is Kildeskovshallen in Gentofte. Even in the summer, actually much better in the summer than in the winter, as there is plenty of space, and free lanes for swimming… But then arises the question; is it better to swim in the sea during the summer, as all the triathlon competitions are also in the open water (=OW)?
