Looking back to the past year gave me 2 conclusions. On the one hand, triathlon really needs a lot of dedication, when not training good and correct, your results will not be better than the year before! Consistent training is really really important. Due to several reasons, this was not possible for me this year. On the other hand, being able still to put on a PR on an Ironman (11 hours 40 minutes on the Ironman Mallorca) after such a bad training year and enjoying the race, made me realise: Triathlon is the most beautiful sport in the world. Last month gave me the strength, motivation I needed to get up again and to go for it every day!
Together with Koen of SOLID endurance, 2016 will be a kick ass year. 3 awesome races are on my to do list for 2016:
10th of April: IRONMAN SOUTH AFRICA
17th of July: CHALLENGE ROTH
28th of August: IM 70.3 ZELL AM SEE
Some running races, cycling tours in between to train on every aspect. Another nice part is that I will restart building up my blog again with my training progress.
See ya laterz, and enjoy the following video of the first race where I will compete on 10th of April!!!
