The clock is ticking and this year’s world cup season is right around the corner. Like very year, time passed by so fast during summer and the warm summer days were almost too fast to be over.
The upcoming world cup start in Wisla, Poland, is already a little highlight in my ski jumping calendar, because hardly somewhere else the fans are as positively crazy and fanatic when it comes to ski jumping.
Preparation felt pretty good for me and the Austrian Championship definitely went better than last year… 😀 This year I consciously changed one ore the other thing to be prepared the best way for the new season. Last season really claimed a lot of strength and energy and especially therefore I had an extra-long holiday, longer than I usually have. First I was in Bali with Marisa and for a good close with Michi and Pati 5 days in Italy. There I have, among other things like for example eating great pizza, doing a little bit of sport and some cultural program, discussed my concept for summer and autumn with Patrick.
Beside a great holiday I finally made it to see Domi Thiem live. I visited him at the ATP tournament and watched his matches – it was really a unique happening. In addition to my every year’s visit at the Electric Love Festival I was also a lot outside in nature, at the Sportlergala with the JumpandReach family and of course also watched Red Bull Salzburg in the stadium – which is simply a must every year 😉
Physically I feel fit, I have my thigh under control and my jumping technique feels good. Nevertheless, this means nothing for the upcoming season – in Wisla everything starts at point zero and the match with wind, material and hill starts again.
The last days we were sun bathing together with the team in Cyprus and of course worked on our strength ability.
Innsbruck and Gramisch are the next stops for our training course and I really look forward to the start in a new season. Thanks in advance for your great support at the spot and in front of the TV,
