I am back home after another great week in spain. This winter spain really has become a bit of a second home. This time I spent 8 days in Tossa de Mar, which is at the Costa Brava. About 100km north of Barcelona. The area is famous for its amazing cycling routes. Lots of pro cyclists live(d) in the town of Girona, which is only 40km away from Tossa. After training in this area I also why it is so popular. The riding is just amazing. I really loved the nice climbs and quiet roads.
the main reason I went down there was that Eitzinger Sport invited me to be a guest in his famous cycling/triathlon weeks. Peter Eitzinger has been in the cycling/triathlon holiday business for many many years. And I was really impressed how well everything was organised. I had a great time and met a lot of new people. I had two lectures and I think it was interesting for the age group athletes to see how a professional athletes trains and lives.
Now I enjoy a few days at home and it seems like summer nearly arrived. But unfortunately I can only enjoy it for a bit. Next week I am off to the US already. Racing a non drafting olympic distance race in Knoxville and then not long till my first big race of the year is on. Ironman Texas May 19. After my knee injury and longer break in winter, I really can say everything is good now. the last weeks I was able to do my specific speed sets again. So that was a big plus and my shape is def really good. So I can travel to Texas with great expectations. But for sure I need a perfect day and I need some good luck as well. It is always a long day out there.
