On September 8th I will be flying home for a 5 week training stint before coming back to the US for racing as well as to see my brother Lutz at the Half Ironman World Championship in Clearwater.
The stay at home will allow for a lot of cross training, some great mountain biking, going back to my old gymnastics group (great for strength and flexibility), volleyball and tennis are on the list of things to do.
The wine harvest will be on and for the first time in many years I won’t be missing my mothers birthday. Besides that there are of course all my siblings, nieces and nephews.
All this should get me into great shape for two great races in November and October.
I will post about my training sessions as well as some pics to show you the beauty of the area. The Black Forrest.
Rock n’ Roll!
