Triatlet

Historien om mikkel

Jeg hedder Mikkel Mortensen, er 25 år, og dyrker triathlon. En sport jeg elsker, da det sætter høje krav til arbejdsindsatsen, det presser mig til at blive bedre og gøre mit bedste hver dag. Udover de hårde fysiske præstationer, og mange timer jeg ligger i sporten, for at blive, den bedste jeg kan, så elsker jeg også sporten for de personer, der er i den. Det kan udefra opfattes, som en meget egoistisk sport, men jeg har aldrig oplevet, en mere social og hjælpsom sport, så det er et fedt miljø at være en del af!

Da jeg startede med triathlon var målet bare at gennemføre de stævner jeg stillede op i. Efterfølgende har det ændret sig til, at jeg nu jagter placeringer og tider.

Det motiverer mig at have noget at stå op til og træne hen i mod. Jeg kan mærke jeg bliver glad af det jeg laver, og det er for mig det vigtigste.
Mit næste store mål er Ironman VM på Hawaii til oktober, hvor en topplacering er målet.

Mikkels bedrifter

Det har bl.a. medført en række age group og overall første og podiepladser til en lang række stævner. Dem der dog stikker mest ud for mig er, Ironman Kalmar 2016, hvor jeg kørte min hidtil hurtigste Ironman tid 8 timer 51 min. Hvor jeg kvallificerede mig til Ironman VM på Hawaii, hvor jeg kom på en 4. plads i aldersgruppen. Derudover har jeg kørt 4. timer 2 min. til halv Ironman EM, som gav en 3. plads af 25-29 årige. I 2018 er jeg netop blevet ITU VM Lang distance verdensmester, som bedste age grouper.

  • In these strange times I miss some positive news, so please share yours here in the comments below⬇️
What are you doing to make the time go? 
I have been biking on my new cross- and on my awesome road bike in the nice weather we have in Denmark now. 
I have been cleaning a lot, done some practical things in the apartment, strength training with bands, and trying to keep the good shape even though I have been looking a lot into the refrigerator.🥘🥐
I have also worked with the Actiwise athletes, and added some new stuff to my website 😊
I have also been to mri scan with my heart now I am waiting for news from the doctor hopefully it can help tell me what I can and what they recommend I can do. I have been very pleased with the Danish healthcare system during the whole way, very helpful and understanding🙏I have enjoyed the nature with a overnight stay in minus degrees for the first but not last time, making bonfire to keep warm. I love to be outdoor especially when the sun is shining. 🦊

What are you doing these days? Please share here in the comments.

  • Finally it's weather to ride on the roadbike again🚴‍♂️ After what feels like 6 months of rain 🌧😝 #ThisIsWhatILove #AhCykler #Cervelo #RebelWheels #RebelDenmark #Biking #Motivation #Triathlon #Denmark
  • My first gravel ride and wauw that's FUN! 
I love the more "free" way of riding and the technical aspect. 🙌 Even though it costed me a puncture and a broken rear derailier (Last picture)😅 #ahcykler #Cervelo #Aspero #Bike  #TriathlonTraining #ktk86 #ktk86eliteteam
  • Currently I am training 7-9 hours per week without any intensity. I dont feel for it to push the body at the moment. The most difficult thing is mentally, to see and feel the great fitness and shape slip away. In the beginning it was tough really tough but now I have accepted it I have to and work with what I can at the moment.
 I´m enjoying the great trips I've already had this year with Lanzarote, Dubai and Norway and we are only February how good is that 😊 Creating memories and getting some good adventures. In the end thats what it´s all about for me.
