People always ask me what I am doing beside of training. I always thought that's a funny question. People think athletes must be bored and they dont have anything else to do beside of swim/bike/run/eat/sleep. Well, I have never been very good with being lazy, so if I dont train, I like to do other things and keep myself busy.  Due to my hamstring injury I have a bit more of this “spare” time at moment. Plus I still do lots of swimming, biking and a few little runs. and there is hours of rehab program at moment too. So after all the day still seems not to have enough hours to get everything else done. A big thanks to Paul Jewkes from St.George tourism office for building up my new website. one of the more important things on the “list to do”  when time…

I havent planed any more races at moment. I have to see how I go over next few weeks. I hope to be back till october the latest. I wont try to get the points for this years Hawaii World Champs anymore. I made that mistake in the past, and it is just not worth it if you cant show up at 100% in Kona. waste of time and money. it hurted me a bit when I had to say no to Ironman Switzerland. as everybody knows I still have that win there on the top of my bucket list.

so I try to keep patient and not rush things like in the past. always a lesson to learn.
