May @Leysin – camp in the Swiss mountains

Ist 4 weeks now since I`m back in Leysin to spend the European summer with teamTBB and coach Brett. Training going well and all the hill work already pays off. Its my 4th camp in the Swiss mountains and I still love it like the first time. The view up here is breathtaking (even for a Swiss girl) and the ride/run just cant get any better. I dont know how many time in the last 4 years I did “the loop” but I never get bored of it and if I do, I just go around the counterclockwise.

May 2013 was a bit of a nasty,wet and cold month incl. of 36 hours of not stop snowing … which gave coach nearly a breakdown at he pool one morning. No springtime in Switzerland this year, just snow all may and the cows which try to find some green didn`t looked very happy either. I know my muscles and also maybe my attitude doasn`t have a very good relationship with this conditions but what can I do, I`ve to get out there and give it a go. One Morning I had to run a marathon and it was heavely snowing. Got dressed up like a Eskimo and felt like a meerkat at the Noth Pole. However, my body didn`t respond very well (yes he threw me and I didn`t stick to the wall this time). With a little tendon problem at my hamstring one week before the ITU Worlds, unfortunately I had to resign to represent Switzerland at the startline.

Two weeks later now, I feel much better and picked up the run again and guess what, its summer now. So back happily training and I look forward to race somewhhere soon before Challenge Roth is calling.

Cheers Xena
