Hi, everyone - interested in reading how I'm doing? This is where you will find what I am willing to share publicly ...

Back on track?

Back on track?

OK - it's been a while now since I have not been sooo active after I had to quit my professional triathlon carreer due to a knee injury almost 6 years ago.

Since then, many things have happened in my life, and finally I stranded in a triathlete's paradise:

I am working since 2.5 years at the Oasis Sports & Family Resort on Fuerteventura island, where before this occupation and during my pro carreer I went frequently to train... year-round sunny weather, never cold and quite a remote place in terms of traffic make it simply the ideal sports place.

We have a 50m, heated outdoor pool and pretty ideal running and cycling routes around... but I have not been working out much - primarily because I still suffered a long time from the injury, then because I have been very busy with many things I'll probably talk about in later blog posts.

But to make it short now... My knee is still bothering me, but much, much less than before and I simply need to make use of this awesome place I am living at... 

I needed a goal though to commit to.

I will sign up for one of my absolute favoured races I had the pleasure to compete at during my carreer - Ironman Lanzarote right now is just a 25min ferry-trip away for me, so 2016 I'll be "doing it" again Cool - of course nowadays I am an age grouper and have to adjust my goals, I don't have that much time for training as before, but the more I "need it"!

I was thinking (and still am) that enough people might find it interesting to see an "old man" coming back as an age-grouper, who has been racing successfully as a professional before to blog here from now on about what's going on in training and life in general, so I'll let it begin today and see where the journey will lead!
