weekend wrap up

We travelled circa 300km to get some solitude, sun and blue seas and skies. And we got that and more. It was such an awesome weekend.

Saturday was my first incursion into BFR and it wasn’t as great as I expected, but a good try nonetheless. I backed it up with another long run, but this time I was smart and used socks and shoes and ran on the hard sand. It was just neat.

Monday was off, with some serious driving and studying and siesta to do. And then back to normal.

The Xterra world champs were held in Maui the past weekend. I’ve never done one of those, but I know I will, once I start riding MTB’s.

My mate Martin was doing the age group race. Martin kicked is in the 40-44 age group and kicked my ass in Budapest just over a month ago. This time he did another kick ass job and finished 5th in his AG. I wonder where he get’s all the stamina to keep training hard and harder and harder again to do so well to qualify for both world champs and keep performing well. I think his secret is all those chocolate milk cartons he uses on a daily basis, but It’s still to be confirmed.

I also got a programme from the Coach and it looks pretty well thought and not to tiring, which is good and bad, because tiredness is not harmful in the right measures. From tomorrow we’re moving outdoors to a new pool. We also got an extra ½ hour of swimming which will be great.

Summer is in the air, and it’s looking nicer than expected

Keep rocking out there,
