De BEMC marathon. Het kleine broertje van de BEMC 3-daagse rittenwedstrijd is een marathon verreden in en rond Bertrix in het hart van de Belgische Ardennen. 100km met daarin 2700 hoogtemeters verstopt. Ik zeg verstopt, maar eigenlijk slaan ze je ermee om te oren. Een kleine flashback. Precies 12 maanden geleden stond ik ook aan de start deze wedstrijd. Zonder ervaring maar met een goed vormpeil na training in Oostenrijk. Die dag zette een beetje een trend voor het einde van 2017. Vallen na...

As some of you might know, I'm currently learning to become a certified running coach / trainer. Why? I hear you ask. Well, firstly because I wanna learn more about the theory and science behind running. I've always been fascinated by the science behind any sports. From experience I know running is a lot more than meets the eye. The right technique can make you run easier and faster. But more importantly, the right technique can prevent injuries. My second reason is more career related. As my...

Today's training was going to be a nice solid ride on the tri bike. Me and Piet Boom met up at my place for a nice up tempo 80k ride. A ferry to cross the river, then a 30k ride towards the bridge of Vianen, cross the bridge towards Nieuwegein and then do some laps on the cycling track Nedereindse berg. A small 2.6k track with a small ascent in the middle. It's not much, but enough to hurt the legs.

As you may have read in my older posts. I made a deal with my girl, she would try to train 3 times a week. Now, 4 weeks in, her improvements are incredible. The first ride, it was difficult to even to 20k at an average speed of 22km/h. Today we did a 46k ride at an average speed of 26,2km/h. The endurance is building, but more important, she's more confident on the bike. Even lifting the front wheel for small gaps in the road. I'm impressed. Keep up the good work babe. Thank you for reading my...

Personally I try to do several things. But most important is stretching and resting.

In trying to get more used to transition between cycling and running i'm going to train this the coming weeks. How? Well, simply by cycling at least 90km and afterwards running at least 10km. And more importantly, trying to do a lot of mile repeats at race pace. This is so my body can get used to the hard effort immediately after coming of the bike. I know it's not the full length of my Ironman 70.3 goal, but the long run effort I'll do at another time in the week. Also, my endurance is already...

After my training day, I always try to make time to go for a ride with my girl. As we made a promise to each other at the beginning of her summer holiday to try and ride 3 times a week. So today was #NOEXCUSE for me. So, after a my recovery shake and a nice ice cold drink, we quickly went on our way together.
