Kona Countdown 2012: Eight Weeks Out
I am excited to share some news with you guys–Leopard Trek has joined with me to create a video series about my buildup to the World Champs in Hawaii this year. I will post a new video every week, showing you guys a bit of the behind-the-scenes story about what it takes to train and race in Kona.
In this week’s video, I am just wrapping up a training block and am completely exhausted–at the end of the day I really don’t have much left and tend to go to bed and boring hours like 9:30pm. Living at high altitude in Nederland, CO means that I need as much sleep as possible in order to recover from the brutal training days down in Boulder.
Starting today, I am also taking questions from my twitter followers about anything they would like to know regarding my Kona buildup. Just address your tweets to @dirkbockel #KonaCountdown. I will answer a new question each week!
