POOLS CLOSED – PANDEMIC UPDATE
Hilversum, Netherlands. The last weeks were different than what I (and many others) expected the spring of 2020 to be. Instead of ramping up the training and getting ready for the first races of the season, reality hit hard in form of a pandemic. With pools now being closed for an unknown period of time, I am happy that the weather allows for some extra bike sessions in the outdoors. Both swimming and cycling are the disciplines in which I want (and need) to improve a lot over the next months if I want more than just participating at the World Champs. As swimming is out of questions for now (except for endless dryland exercises), I have some extra time to focus on my cycling skills.
This year is a lesson on letting go what you cannot control. Cheers to that!
