Next: Ironman Switzerland 15.Juli , Zürich
I just came back home from a one week camp up in Leysin with the Team. I enjoyed it a lot. It is good to have the team around to do all the hard training I normally do by myself. Also, to have coach Brett around is very important. Everybody who trained with him before knows, he is at his best when he is coaching you on site. that is when you get the most out of his training. doesnt mean it is easier at all …
so I am back home for a few days and then up to Leysin again for another push towards my next big goal, Ironman Switzerland. I tried to win this race for a few years now. A few times I went into that race with injuries and once I had to pull out because of hypothermia. So I hope this year I have one of those perfect days. I will need that to beat guys like Ronnie, he won the race 5times and he always is at his best racing in Zürich. But I like a good challenge and he knows I wont make his life easy there.
at the end I have to keep the big picture in mind. it is just another race. I joined Team TBB and Brett for one reason. To learn to run fast marathons in Ironman. So this takes time and I work hard on this every single day. It is great to see my team mates doing so well in their races. I think Team TBB has a super strong team together this year. not only women, but also men. the girls set the standard high over the last years. so it is about time the boys step their game up too. And I think so far we are not doing too bad this year. But I am sure there is much more to come. So watch out for Team TBB … you wont get around us that easy.
