Since 2012 i am a self coached triathlete. I started studying the triathlon training bibliography, with the goal to be able to design my annual training schedule. I am now in the 5th year that i coach myself and it has proven to be an on going proccess with a big initial progress, several fallbacks and still a lot to learn. I also try to read the biographies of successful triathletes to gain access both to their small useful training tips and their mental training tactics. Every year i do small changes to my training plans and evaluate the results after the races.

In 2017 i attented and i was awarded with the IRONMAN Coaching Certification. Since then, i am a member of IRONMAN Coaches Association.
