Security has been taken to a new level here in Mexico. First the training center sent their own security guy to watch us while training, but the owner of the center didn’t feel that this was enough so now we have a fully armed platoon! Police car, police offroad motorcycle and an ATV. I feel sorry for the fisherman throwing a rock at us…

It’s been amazing here in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. We live at the La Loma training center at 1900 meter above sea level and the lake is 70m higher. It’s been great with our own lake, especially after training with 200 Canadian kids in Florida. The lake is almost 2k long, deep and clean water. Wind hasn’t been any problem, but we still have 18 days to find out more about that. The apartments at La Loma are very good, kitchen, big living room, 3 bedrooms, wash machine and internett. The meals we get served at the center is great and if we have any request they fix it right away. We can also decide when we want to eat. I’ve never been to a training center where I feel as welcome as I do here, it’s just fantastic. Nothing is a problem, everything can be fixed. These first days with training are easy as we get used to the high altitude. The landscape doesn’t remind me of high altitude so it’s a little bit harder to control the intensity then when I’m cross country skiing in high altitude.

I’ve been in Florida almost 4 weeks, so much training and no time to update
the blog:). First three weeks went very well, a lot of training and I still
managed to feel fresh. This week has been hard, but I’m pushing thru since
I’ve got 4 days rest from Sunday. The Pines is a good place to be when you
train, but when you don’t train is good to get away. Mira and I will fly to
New York and have some vacation before the last weeks of training. Here at
the Pines Mira and I are sharing apartment with two young and upcoming
athletes; Daniel and Jo Sondre. They have impressed me on the water and in
the kitchen. They still have something to learn about washing clothes, but
two out of three is not bad!
