    “Ik wil eerst een seizoen getraind hebben alvorens ik me inschrijf voor een triatlon”. Dat waren tot een half jaar geleden de woorden van @tanja.de.jong (47). Inmiddels is ook deze hardlooptrainster besmet geraakt met het triatlonvirus; over precies twee weken staat ze aan de start van Ironman 70.3 in Zell am See 🇦🇹

    Have you ever noticed that the fastest swimmers in the pool typically look like they are swimming with less effort than the slower ones? It is not a coincidence. There is a reason and it is mostly in the wrist.

The part of the swimmer we see during the freestyle race is the part above the water…the back of the head, the back, the feet breaking the surface, and the recovery of the arms. 
Although most of the real work is going on under the surface, the few tenths of a second that the arms are recovering above the water between each underwater pull turns out to be extremely important for the swimmer.

The human muscle can recover in a surprisingly short amount of time, if we give it a chance. If a muscle is relaxed for just a brief period, tenths of seconds, the ions involved in the exchange across the cell membranes, mostly sodium and potassium, necessary for a strong muscular contraction, can find their way back home in time for another good pull. 
If we keep the muscles tense and contracted, they fatigue much sooner. The muscles are simply unable to sustain the strong contractions for very long.

It seems like a simple proposition. Relax the wrist and fingers during the recovery and you will likely pull stronger and for a longer period of time, two desirable outcomes, particularly if you want to swim fast. 🎥 The infamous Lendkanal at the #IMAustria presented by @visit.klagenfurt #visitklagenfurt

    OK. 👌 So we’re now on WEEK 4 of a 52 week training plan leading into #imaustria . It’s getting serious and it’s already hard to get these sessions in. Rest day today - stretching, abs and light legwork - hitting the pool @ 6.30am tomorrow on a solid interval session. I’m buzzing, I feel good and I feel strong. Just got to stay away from @greggs_official 😂😂 #swimbikerun #tri #ironman #triharder #swimming #cycling #running

    Schwimmen löste ewig ein ungutes Gefühl in mir aus 🌊🦈😳 Um dieses abzustellen, muss ich jedoch ins Wasser 🏊‍♂️ Wir sollten uns nicht zuviel mit anderen Menschen beschäftigen! Schließlich liegt genug Müll bei uns selbst herum! Machen wir die meisten Dinge nur, weil wir in Wirklichkeit Angst haben, mit uns alleine in einem Raum zu sein? Würde man es schaffen ohne Störgeräusche 🗣️🎊🎶📱📺 Verspüren wir ein unangenehms Bauchgefühl, innere Unruhe, leichte  Panik 😱 Wir säubern 🧹 unsere Wohnungen, um ein Ideal zu veranschaulichen. Was ist mit unserer Seele, unseren dunkelsten Dämonen 👹 Wir räumen unsere Ängste in kleine Boxen 📦 und versperren 🔒 diese, für niemanden sichtbar. Es fällt Staub darauf, Erinnerungen verschwimmen, Konturen verblassen. Deren Gegenwart nimmt jedoch nicht ab. Wir setzen unser schönstes Lächeln auf 😊 und zerfallen innerlich 😭 Ich kann mich mit hundert Personen umgeben und größte Einsamkeit, Missverständnis verspüren. Man steht mit seinen Unsicherheiten auf , geht wieder zu Bett 🛏️ Ich möchte mein Inneres nicht mehr verräumen. Vielleicht sollten wir wieder alte Boxen öffnen, uns mit deren Inhalt beschäftigen und diese danach endgültig entsorgen 🗑️
