injury on my right foot is 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 trains to keep his fitness

8:48 am
but winning the hawaii are unmanned costs at least a 1000000 about training and preparation from them you're in with the 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 and brought. 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. there always a few of those with you know while with my hands and all the mail or the bus all the things i need to take to hawaii with. a used to do 10 k. runs herself. but at some stage she decided she didn't want to become

a professional athlete will be modest you know i think it gets really difficult when both people in a relationship are ambitious athletes before oh. hell. i think those relationships don't tend to last i defied emotions. so what i was 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 for the bikes and doesn't even have paint on its frame this reduces the weight by an extra 140 grams.

8:51 am
a professional athlete 9 years ago he trained extremely hard there 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. 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 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 and we're gone this. is the 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 wins that and one by michel you does on the
8:52 am
middle east. well so nothing to do with sports at all. so mists oh god it's much luck. to you sebastian has decided to compete and the need to i am man after all long and that's why you. think if you. think it's important to have a little bit of this let it go 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 and his fine but a few absolute oval this is like fort knox. along at night they even have guard dogs patrolling good enough. that would seem to see one falling flat on either bird with machine.

here you 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 congress passed him. 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 or socking as a strong suit after all he gradually fights his way towards the top of the pack and by the time he has his bike to start running he's already in 11th place. sebastian gives it everything he's crushed has never run a marathon this fast before in his life. but even so it's not quite enough to clinch victory no ways because to even comes 1st sebastian makes 5th place.
