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.

  • Tuesday I visited @peakpower.dk to get my ”old”position back. Michael helped me back in December when I got my P5X, and we found a good fit back then. But in true Eddy Merckx style I have been changing my position up and down back and forth since. Looking back it was maybe a stupid decision. 
But why did I do it then? 
I had a really good position on my old Speecconcept, so I wanted to try if I could find the same position. 
Maybe afraid of loosing my good position. 
So i measured and adjusted it myself. In January I got stiff patella tendon, nothing really serious but to avoid the problem I took my sadlle up, wich ended with my calves being stiff, and a overload in a tendon. Then I took the saddle down and it helped on the calves but I went to low wich resulted in no power output, unstable position, and falling forward on the bike, the feeling of getting locked so I couldn´t find a rythm. Always in the hunt of trying to find the best, this time it went wrong for me, but now I am back on the first setup with a more stable position both in the upper body and position on the saddle and a lot better power output + some cleats thats are adjusted to my postion and food problems. 
Leasson learned and I will think twice next time 😉

  • The highs are high! And the lows are low!

To be honest it has been really tough the last weeks for me. 
I have had a period with extremely tiredness in the body. Wich also appeared in Ironman Brasil. The tiredness will not let go, and the last 4 weeks I have been training at a minimum to let the body rest. 
It´s a hard time because I really want to train but on the other hand I don't have the physical energy to do it. Combined with an inflamated tendon in the toe, so I can´t train properly. Thats very tough mentally and physically. 
Both things are slowly turning, and I am at a point where I accept it and can start to look forward again from where I am. Even though it´s far away from where I wanted it to be this time at the season. Maybe that´s why the highs are so high!?
  • It has been a tough period physically and mentally the last weeks. But evenings like this spend on my bike in the sun it's hard not to smile 😎👌

  • Looking back at this years Next Level Camp season. Reflecting  about what worked out well, and what I can do better. When I am done looking back it´s time to look forward! So I don´t get hit by the car (picture) or other obstacles that can be avoided if I learn from my reflections.
