The not so glamorous life of a Pro triathlete!
Working 35h/week as a Food science while training as a Pro triathlete is tricky but possible.
Doing a 60 km bike commute to work is a great way to get a workout in and it saves me lots of time. I'm Even doing some tempo intervals with a heavy bag 💼. It might not be the most optimal way to train but you gotta do what you gotta do!
I also get to drink beer 🍻 at work and I'll be doing a track workout tonight so I'm basically a Pro Beer miler! Maybe I should compete in @trstriathlon beer Mile un Kona!! 😜
#im703WC was Epic! It was a nice experience to race with the best in the world but I'm pretty disappointed with how I raced. I just didn't have any energy on the bike and rode like a 🐢. I felt surprisingly good on the run and was able to finish on a good note. However I won't be racing the IM 70.3 WC unless I can be Truly competitive and near the top 10. Looking forward to get ready for 70.3 Austin & Los Cabos to hopefully finish the season on a good note.

Tomorrow will be my first World Championship! 3 years ago I decided to go Pro because I wanted to race against legends of our sport and I wanted to test my body against me the best of the World. Tomorrow I'll get the opportunity to do both. It's gonna be hard, it's gonna be painful, my body will scream for me to stop but my mind will push me through! 👊
I'm not only racing for me, I'm also racing for the animals. I want to show that you can compete at the highest level without hurting the animals and the planet. 🐥🐔🐮🐷🌏
This is an extra motivation to push my body to its limits and explore a level of pain and discomfort that I never thought would be possible.
So this is it!! Show time!! Let's have fun!! Good luck to everyone racing and thanks to everyone who's supporting me!
