Being stuck in the mountains last summer with a hamstring injury whilst everyone else around me went crazy with training made me think about my future.

“Do I still want to invest in triathlon or is it time to close that chapter and start to focus on a life after triathlon?

It took me some time but I knew that I was not able to stop right now. That feeling after a really fast track session in the heat of the summer, or my World Cup win in the crazy town of Tiszaujvaros, Hungary is irreplaceable. I want to feel it again and for that I’m willing to work hard and dedicate all I’ve got.

In September I started with core training with my physio and I made a lot of progress with my fundamental strength. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a stable core before you start your serious training and I felt that I missed this the last few years.

At the same time I was back at university and had some really great and interesting projects to work on. To have something parallel to sports, challenging my brain and staying active, helped me a lot.

After overcoming the flu in December, I really looked forward to go to my first training camp in Gran Canaria to make a proper build up for the season.

Gran Canaria is just so amazing and great for long and steady bike rides in the mountains, oceans swim or just a long and scenic run up the valley. I was able to focus and the training is already paying off. I’m very confident for the upcoming races. Stay tuned, it’s time to rock and roll again!

Cheers,
Florin!
