8:16 am
discomfort. sébastien kenya is one of germany's top triathlete in trying very hard and competes against the world's best athletes. and you need to work hard every day so you have even a vague chance of making it to the finish line i hope before the off. the bus down as an italian alps man i mean you know training for the upcoming triathlons the season in mid october he'll compete in the morning i imagine we'll swim 4 kilometers cycle 100 an easy kilometers and then run
8:17 am
a full marathon. sebastien is talking with his wife christina training phonied to iron man in 10 days time but not everything is going to plan. in order for 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 on to this curve with my right foot with the news 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 a ligament. in one of the serve well you can still see the
8:18 am
injury on the side of my right foot is a bit taller. so this really doesn't bode well for the new iron man is that 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 not up to i'm dieting. so instead so must anna's 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 sebastian engages until after 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
8:19 am
levels up. 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 do this through the by the. i mean your muscles i don't feel. so my coach would probably be appalled if you heard me talk about how to exercise properly. like this i mean if you walk run. so fast and then his coach have to rise to training routine with special exercises for his injured foot he wants to do really well in the upcoming why iron man the winner takes home $100000.00 neurons in prize money and sebastian wants to secure a lucrative sponsorship deal. with madoff and always. i think judging by looking current in the office i have a 30 percent chance of winning the race for what then for the that's not bad.
8:20 am
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. that. 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 think about what still needs doing now to also have 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 milo of uganda and all the mail when the bus all the things i need to take to hawaii. to do 10 k. runs herself. but at some stage she decided she didn't want to become
8:21 am
a professional athlete will be modest you know i think it gets really difficult when both people in a relationship are ambitious athletes and for a lot of help. work with long i think those relationships don't tend to last i decided. to walk by them probably as 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 why and mats it's 5 a bite and doesn't even have paint on its frame this reduces the weight by an extra 140 grimes.
8:22 am
along with it. 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 to a. customer that is following by car she knows these training sessions are not always smooth sailing. when you jada's marvell 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
8:23 am
a professional athlete 9 years ago he trains extremely hard that he knows injuries are a constant danger and that he any has a few months years and him as a full time athlete. if i hope. i enjoy the freedom that comes with being an athlete. so when i retire and become an employee somewhere it'll be hard to adjust to the. 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. 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 you does on the middle east
8:24 am
. well that's so nothing to do with sports at all. so mists oh god it's wall. street sebastian has decided to compete on the need to i am man after all long and that's where you. think you. think it's. a little bit there a little bit more 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 sebastien like the others must check on his bike but a few off the oval this is like fort knox. at night they even have guard dogs patrolling in my name robertson is the one talent on either bird with machine.
8:25 am
guns on. the big day has arrived at some bus town as up at 5 am. a message. to. the many send in my i'm going park usually i would absolutely hate getting up this early. in the gob puts into a pit stop for 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 sebastien needs to get his kit ready so he won't change any time during the race which into his bike. he's already wearing his cycling slash running outfit underneath his neoprene singed. and carrying the number 3 is germany's past just keep. the narrative.
8:26 am
to the rescue maybe you could describe. everybody come on if you're usually. a professional athlete start a few minutes before the amateurs. but unfortunately sebastiaan is off to a bad start within seconds he's trailing several swimmers and can't get past them. he loses precious time getting out of the water isn't fair he 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 finds his way towards the top of the pack and by the time he ditched his bike to start running he's already in the 11th place. sebastian gives it everything he's coming he's never run a marathon this fast before in his life. but even so it's not quite enough to clench victory noways custom even comes 1st so last year makes 5th place.
8:27 am
to be the least one dance move. everyone is impressed by sebastian's fantastic comeback with the worry if you look at it really is we're looking for an agreement now he'll need time to recuperate and so will his wife it's been a stressful race for both of us actually and i'm getting you know what. i believe it. was i supposed to do you think i don't liberals. he swam so slowly no that's not what i'm saying here tonight. if. i never get. right right have my life like nothing more than anything but in the end with me yet so if that isn't good i need to recover as quickly as possible
8:28 am
to get at this because the big race in hawaii is coming up soon which i'm happy with that 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 my license on the style of political leader but that's not. going to want 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 and my. me just get. to.
8:29 am
