a full marathon. sebastian is talking with his wife christina training for needs iron man in 10 days time but not everything is going to plan. on. the other day i was on the cycle track which was really busy someone was coming towards me and i stepped out of the way it went to the skirt with my right foot. i twisted my ankle really badly and then i thought ok that's it i won't be doing any sport for at least a year in this. fortunately he only strained in the game and. this is one of the series well you can still see the injury on my right foot is
1:18 pm
a bit taller. so this really doesn't bode well for the new iron man. i was planning on doing a few tough long distance runs to train. but that's not possible now so i'll miss out on 4 or 5 workout sessions and i'll up the i'm dieting. so instead sebastian is trying to regain stability in his foot by exercising baffert. he's reorganized his training schedule to allow for his injury. now he's all about perfecting his running technique. each day sébastien engages until one of the 3 triathlon disciplines swimming cycling all running. after which he hits the gym he usually spends 8 hours training every day. over the past months he's built up his muscles now he trying to keep his fitness
1:19 pm
levels up. but. so i you've got to make sure you're not continuously strengthening your muscles is all. you have to use light weights to keep your muscles in shape and do the exercises properly. they need to be the by them i mean your muscle side else you. know my coach would probably be appalled if you heard me talk about how to exercise properly. legless i mean if you took some of. the best and then as coach have to rise to training routine with special exercises for his injured foot he wants to do really well in the upcoming hawaii i know the winner takes home 100000 neurons in prize money and sebastian wants to secure a lucrative sponsorship deal. with often always. i think judging by a link earn him the office i have a 30 percent chance of winning the race for work on 4th of that's not bad.
1:20 pm
but winning hawaii are unmanned costs at least a 1000000 about training and preparation from your movement so you spend even more money over the years. thought on board with me. getting ready for and participating in iron man competitions is costly sebastiaan needed to pay for training camps and international flights as well as for health insurance abroad. even question a marketing job to support him so i thought about what still needs doing and i would also have requests of yeah i guess i need to take care of those myself package delivery is. yup there are always a few of those with you know while with my guns and all the mail when the bus all the things i need to take to hawaii. used to do 10 k. runs herself. but at some stage she decided she didn't want to become
1:21 pm
a professional athlete will be modest you know i think it gets really difficult when both people in a relationship are ambitious athletes for a lot of help. i think those relationships don't tend to last i've been fighting myself. so. how does one person gives up their ambition so the other one can excel. in mind this is where keep my bike. today sebastiaan is going for a long cycle right the hotel we're staying has given him a special room to store his beloved bike he designed it himself for the needs and why and mats it's 5 a box and doesn't even have paint on its frame this reduces the weight by an extra 140 grams.
1:22 pm
all of. it with. sebastian strong suit is cycling on his bike he knows he can make up for time lost 20 which he finds hardest. today he's sucking up to steep mountain passes and will cover not a tube of 1000 meters it will be a grueling 4 our tour. that is following by car she knows these training sessions are not always smooth sailing. with you yod is my well i don't like him going out by himself i get nervous when i know he should be back in 3 hours but it isn't a. 35 year old sebastien became
1:23 pm
a professional athlete 9 years ago he trained extremely hard though he knows injuries are a constant danger and that he any has a few months years in him as a full time athlete. and 5. what i enjoy the freedom that comes with being an athlete. so when i retire and become an employee somewhere it will be hard to adjust to the. there are days when i wish i had a 9 to 5 lifestyle where i could just come home and forget about work because that's not how things are when you're a sports person it's hard to switch off from work on this. sebastien loves to read to get his mind off things and relax. ok and putin i'm reading a book about russian president putin and one by michel dude us on the middle east.
1:24 pm
had been through it was this so nothing to do with sports at all. so mists oh god this mix well for me to sebastian has decided to compete in the need to iron man after all no longer let's review. the. right thing to blame that's coming out. of there. but i think you need some races i've been to professional and amateur athletes they only need to check in a day before the competition and sebastian like the others must check and his fine but if the op moved over this is like 4th knocks. at night they even have guard dogs patrolling in my name that would suit him falling flat on i would like to finish.
1:25 pm
this article in the big day has arrived at some bus town as up at 5 am. the message after the event is on the in my pocket usually i would i absolutely hate getting up this early. in the gob puts into a pit stop before a race like this when my alarm goes off i get up and i'm ready to roll i never feel tired or anything like that. for me but. the competition kicks off until alice sebastian needs to get his kit ready so he won't end any time during the race switching to his bike. he's already wearing his cycling slash running outfit underneath his neoprene suit. and clearing the number 3 is germany's last year's killing. candidate really cater to the rest of us maybe you could be stuck on everybody come on if
1:26 pm
you're huge you claiming. the professional athlete starts a few minutes before the amateurs. but unfortunately sebastiaan is off to a bad start within seconds he's trailing several swimmers and counter past them. he loses precious time getting out of the water isn't fair she 1st place a disaster. sebastian gets on his bike and tries to make up for lost time while sucking as a strong suit after all he gradually finds his way towards the top of the pack and by the time he ditched his bike to start running he's already in 11th place. sebastian gives it everything he's got he's never run a marathon this fast before in his life. but even so it's not quite enough to clinch victory no ways because that even comes 1st sebastien makes 5th place.
1:27 pm
a little bit. least one back from the fire everyone is impressed by sebastian fantastic comeback with the record year for movies we're looking for and regret now he'll need time to recuperate and so will as wife it's been a stressful race for both x. the unfamiliar you know what. i believe it. was i supposed to do you think i don't literally. swam so slowly no that's not what i'm saying. now what. kind of if you. break right have nothing to back matter what time have you been. with yet so it's no use
1:28 pm
getting my need to recover as quickly as possible to get it because the big race in hawaii is coming up soon i'm happy with 5th place but i could have done better. with this if that's not what i spent the past year training for. i would but i will focus on the good things the info i know i will have forgotten them by tomorrow or by this time the style is put a little more definite. here competing in these races is as much about mental strength as it is about physical fitness and it's about being nice to the fans to hear this. sebastiano rest for 4 days and then get back into training for the hawaii i and my. me just get. to the.
