As the summer goes by my trainings continue to be as hard and harsh as ever!
Regardless of the weather, I already rode more than 2500 km on my racing bike, which was bought for me by my sponsor - Grena Ltd.
It's great to be back on track with my team-mates and I really feel I'm making progress thanks to my intense training.
At the end of July our whole team went to Inzell in Germany to train speed skating in a stadium hall ice rink - the Max Aicher Arena. It's a pity we don't have such a facility in Poland, so athletes are forced to train abroad.
After coming back home at the beginning of August I started training with the Sochi bronze medal winning Konrad Niedzwiedzki in Zakopane. It was a great experience to train with an athlete like him! I look forward to our next trainings.
By increasing the amount of my training I realised I need a better diet. Therefore, I started working with a specialised sports nutritionist, who will help me plan balanced meals and will keep an eye on the supplements I need to take. I can't wait to feel the results of this diet!
On August 13th, together with my team-mates we started our team training in Sanok, Poland. We were training on roller blades, bikes as well as on the short track.
Apart from training, I also made time to take part in a competition – the prestigious Tour de Pologne for Amateurs race on the 8th of August. I placed 11th out of 1389 participants who finished the race. I was riding the 31,8km track and finished it in under one hour (0:59:15), which gives an average riding speed of 32,2 km/h.
I'm already planning my start on the 31st of August in the 19th Race around the Tatras – 205 km track in the highest mountains of Poland! It's going to be fun! This is one of my favourite tracks, so I'm happy I can test my current training preparation in this race.
That's all for now and...let's get back to training! :)
