Hell on wheels gets ready for Hawaii

Planet X star triathlete Thomas Hellriegel just sent us this update of his preparations for XTERRA World Championship Triathlon, in The Canary Islands:

I just came back from Lanzarote to a cold and wet Germany. I had two weeks in The Canary Islands to prepare for XTERRA. Lanzarote is a great place to prepare for Hawaii, because its hot in September, hilly and windy. And there are also lava fields like in Kona. The humidity isn't too high like on the island in the Pacific Ocean, but that makes the training a little more comfortable. Even when there were clouds in the sky the temperature was more than 30C. Perfect! Canary Island are perfect and its only a 4 hour flight and hot weather is guaranteed!

On the bike I did different kind of training. A lot of climbing with the big gear to get stronger in the legs

On the bike I did different kind of training. A lot of climbing with the big gear to get stronger in the legs, but also intervals in the flat to train for the high speed in the race. And of course long and easy rides for the endurance.

Tomorrow I will fly to Kona, 10days before the race, hoping everything will be fine on raceday.
