As the World Cup qualifications are only days away, I concentrate fully on my training and hope my hard work through summer will pay off!
I'll give you a short report on what it's like to train for the World Cup qualifications!
In September I reduced my bike-training hours to trainings in the gym and on ice. I went with the Polish team to Spała (Poland) - where we did a lot of strenght training and were working ourselves into THE best shape for the coming winter season.
We spent the rest of the month in Berlin and Inzell, Germany, where the training was fully concentrated on the ice-skating practice.
I also had an opportunity to take part in the efficiency research examination done by the Sports Institute in Warsaw. The results are not in yet, but I'm really curious about them!
Luckily, I also got to spend a few days at home beetween training, so I could relax in the mountains and play with my dog - he's really young yet, so he likes to do puppy-things like biting everything into pieces - but either way, I miss him when I'm not home.
In the next days I'm going to have my first test-starts for the World Cup qualifications...
The real deal starts now!! Wish me luck!
