Saturday, May 19, 2012 // World Cup 1 Poznan
It’s great to be done with the first K1 1000m off the year. It’s always a lot of question before this race since it’s 7months since we raced each other last time. Has my training paid off, did I focus on the right things this winter, are there any new guys going fast? 2nd place just behind Rene Holten Poulsen is a result I’m very pleased with. I usually don’t race very fast this early in the season, so I definitely think my training has paid off. It’s been a lot of hours and km, but it feels fantastic when you know you’ve managed to improve from one year to another. I’m racing K2 500m and K1 5000m on Sunday. K2 500m is a good way for me to get more race training, with only three international races before the Olympics, it’s important to use them for everything they are worth.
