Ready for Ironman 70.3 Marbella :)

Tomorrow at 07:50 the PRO field start at IM 70.3 Marbella. It will be the first race of the season, which historically never have been good. It is difficult to be in great race shape that early, especially if living and training in cold North Europe, and racing in warmer weather. This time, however, I feel better prepared for my first race than ever. And I am looking more forward to this race then I maybe ever have done. I am just going out to enjoy it. Hopefully, I feel good and can push myself hard, and that is what I am going to do if I get the chance 🙂

The PRO men field is huge with 60 participants, including superb athletes like David McNamee (3. Hawaii 2017), Boris Stein and Andreas Draitz. That must leave me, someone, to swim with and push hard together on the bike. At least that is what I wish for 😉

The race can be followed at this link: http://eu.ironman.com/triathlon/events/emea/ironman-70.3/marbella.aspx#axzz5Dzp290ZX

Lars Christian sorted out the hotel room, which was big enough to mount two bikes at the same time and put all our gear out 😀
Want to get faster thru the queue? Dress like this 😉
Testing out the rather choppy swim course
It was super slow swimming against the waves and current and super fast going back. I hope for less wind tomorrow but the forecast says it will be a rough day regarding wind. Not great for my swimming but great for bike and run since it helps me keep cold. The temperature is also supposed to be as low as 13 degrees which suits me perfectly.

«Mr.Boardman» is ready 😀
