It may come as no surprise to anyone who followed the results that I was very disappointed with my performances in the first two races this season: the World Triathlon Series (WTS) Abu Dhabi on March 5 and the World Cup in Mooloolaba one week later. I apologize for the delayed blog, and the truth is, I didn’t feel like writing about it. But, this blog is about sharing the journey and process – the good, the bad and the ugly. Nonetheless, I’m not one for excuses, nor dwelling on the negative, so I’ll keep this brief:
WTS Abu Dhabi:
Training camp Gold Coast:
Since Mooloolaba, the Belgian Team has spent the last 3 weeks training on the Gold Coast in the Super Sports Center. This is an ideal location for training with a 50m outdoor pool, open-air fitness, cycling track, sports medical center, large lodges, buffet adapted for athletes, running distance to Coombahbah natural reserve, flat and hilly cycling courses, etc. With everything in one place, we even have a little time for some post-dinner ping-pong tournaments and the occasional movie night.
Up Next: WC New Plymouth, WTS Gold Coast, WC Chengdu
We head to New Zealand next week for a sprint distance World Cup in New Plymouth on Sunday April 3, followed by two Olympic distance races in Gold Coast and Chengdu, China on April 9 and 16 respectively. So after a bit of a false start this season, I'm hungry for the opportunity to race. You can follow all the races live on Triathlonlive.tv.
Thanks for the continued support.
