Short trip to Germany, preparing for Rio Maior

April started with one week of training in Bochum, Germany, together with Sabine Zimmer (GER) and Erik Tysse. Although Sabine is from Germany, it was her first training camp in the Ruhr-area. Her new coach, Heiko Schulze, lives there. She was surprised about the good training possibilities they have and about the nice green areas with good roads for training. Both on cinder and on asphalt. We had as always good training conditions in Bochum, nice temperatures and good weather! Kiara had Easter break at school and we had the kids with us in Germany. Kiara's school started again the Tuesday after Easter and therefore we flew back home on Easter Saturday. After having really good training conditions in Germany it was a shock to wake up Sunday morning and see that we had snow outside :-( Not the best way to prepare for a race in southern Europe... The snow went away and the next days it was "just" cold. I had to train with winter tight, a thick jacket, gloves and a hat. I rather should have stayed in Germany together with Erik and Sabine...
