Triathlon with a mission! That is what I will be doing on August 21, 2021! Cause then I will join the well known Ironman triathlon. What to expect? Have a look here at the Race Movie of 2019; Ironman Kalmar. Beside 3,8 km of swimming and 180km of biking, I will also run 42,2km. I will combine this enormous challenge with raising money for research of Diabetes Type 1, one of the most comon chronic deseases in The Netherlands.

What I will be doing the next couple of months? Practice, practice and even more practice. I have done numerous half and quarter triathlons and about 30 half marathons so I will use a 20 week workout schedule to prepare my body for this non-stop challenge which should take roughly 13 hours to complete .

Every week I will have 1 day off and I kick-off training on Tuesday April 6.

Ironman, the Scandinavian department, will also share a monthly report on how I am doing in order to inspire future athletes. Beside that my Facebookpage 'Road to Ironman Kalmar 2021' and Linkedin will be my most important socials to share all I will be going through.

Thanks a million!!!
