It has been a while since my last blog. I have been training the house down and set a solid foundation for a long year with the main goal to be back in the Top 10 in Hawaii. Well, to get there you need quite a few “kona points” and that means it is about time I start racing. For my first race this year I have def not choosen a “cherry pick”. The start list of the 70.3 US Championships here in St.George looks more like a second 70.3 world championships race. Guess it will be a good test to see where I am at. but I am aware this is just a race to get my system going as my main goal will be two weeks later when I race Ironman Texas.
I am happy with where I am standing at the moment. I am still not 100% , but comparing to where I was the last few months of 2012, I cant complain. Brett and I found a good plan for me with some new inputs and it seems to work out well so far.
I have been training a lot with Dan this winter. he has been a great raining buddy and I was happy to see him racing so well at Koh Samui Triathlon. I think he will have a great season.
Before I flew over here I spent two weeks in Tossa de Mar with Eizinger Sport. A good partnership I have there, having lectures and help out age group athletes training for their goals. I will be back working with Eitzinger Sport travel in Kona this year.
So lets get started into a successful 2013 season.
