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 45 workout sessions and i'll up the i'm dieting. so instead sebastian is trying to regain stability and has fought 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 trains to keep his fitness
4:19 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. if you didn't do this by them i mean your muscles sydell you. know my coach would probably be appalled if he heard me talk about how to exercise properly. represented to me through a book or. sebastien them as coach have to vice a 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 800000 neuros in prize money and sebastian wants to secure a lucrative sponsorship deal. with madoff and always. i think judging by a link earned the opposite i have a 30 percent chance of winning the race for work on 4th of that's not bad.
4:20 pm
but winning hawaii are unmanned costs at least a 1000000 about training and preparation from the me you're in with me 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 quest for a marketing job to support him so it's not about what still needs doing although sort of requests of yeah i guess i need to take care of those myself package delivery is. there always a few of those with you know while of uganda and all the mail when i saw the things i need to take to hawaii. because tina used to do a 10 k. runs herself. but at some stage she decided she didn't want to become
4:21 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 defied emotions. so what i was probably less one person gives up their ambition so the other one can excel. in mind this is where i 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 hawaii iron man's it's 5 a box and doesn't even have paint on its frame this reduces the weight by an extra 140 grams.
4:22 pm
along with it with. sebastian strong scent is cycling on his bike he knows he can make up for time lost swimming 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 hour tour. that is following by car she knows these training sessions are not always smooth sailing. when you yacht 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 isn't a. 35 year old sebastien became
4:23 pm
a professional athlete 9 years ago he trains extremely hard that he knows injuries are a constant danger and at the end he has a few months years and him as a full time athlete. if i hope 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 that. there are days when i wish i had a 9 to 5 lifestyle where i can 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 on this. so best and loves to read to get his mind off things and relax. ok and putin i'm reading a book about russian president putin that i won by michel who does on the middle
4:24 pm
east. had been that was this so nothing to do with sports at all. so mists oh god that's next wall street sebastian has decided to compete in the need to i am man after all along let's review. if you. think it's true that. if they get it i think they need some races i've been to professional and amateur athletes they only need to check in the day before the competition and sebastien like the others must check and his fine but a few absolute oval this is like fort knox. that night they even have guard dogs patrolling in my name that would seem easy one falling flat on i would be finished with.
4:25 pm
this if i do the big day has arrived at some bus town as up at 5 am. this message after the event is on the in my i'm going park usually i would absolutely hate getting up this early. in the gob puts into a pit stop but 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 into alice and sebastian needs to get his kit ready so he won't get 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 key to. the narrative recapture. the wrestler maybe you could start on everybody come on here
4:26 pm
here you. are claiming. the professional athletes start a few minutes before the amateurs. but unfortunately sebastiaan is off to a bad start within seconds he's trailing several swimmers and conquered 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 cycling as a strong suit after all he gradually fights his way towards the top of the pack and by the time he has his back to start running he's already in 11th place. sebastian gives that everything is coming he's never run a marathon this fast before in his life. but even so it's not quite enough to clinch victory no way because that even comes 1st sebastien makes 5th place.
4:27 pm
the big. legal issue in dancing with the fire everyone is impressed by sebastian's fantastic comeback with the record here is a look at israelis will look for and regret now he'll need time to recuperate and so will his wife it's been a stressful race for both the experience of being you know everybody's. life. what was i supposed to do you think. deliberately swam so slowly no that's not what i'm saying. i'm going to. i never get that right right. more than. one man one time everything right. and yet so if that means getting my need to recover as quickly as possible because
4:28 pm
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 so i know i will have forgotten them by tomorrow or by this time the style is politically a little but that's not. going to hear 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. supposed jamel rest for 4 days and then get back into training for the hawaii i had my. me just get. in.
