Sometimes you need a new challenge. It doesn't mean your other ones have been not good enough, but I needed some variety. The sport gave me so much since I won two Ironman-titles - the fastest in 8:54 - and the IM World- and European Championships as an agegrouper. I love to share my experience and a lot of athletes trust me and my coaching skills. As more and more athletes asking for help and coaching I decided to build some training plans beside my 1 on 1 coaching. So more athletes can start their journey towards their personal goals. I'd be very happy if you will be one of these.
This plan was build by myself for myself to prepare for my first ultra run. Come and join me!
