Happiness is freedom... sunshine... and sweet, big dreams. 💪
To define is to limit. To consistently, independently self-regulate will make you a winner, because you break the limits of those who adhered to the first option.
Because, it's only ever up to yourself 🌌 🔝 🌞 Photo credit: @retroyspective
Back to action! 🚲 💪 Happy to announce I will be racing the @haute_route Pyrenees 7-day bike stage race in less than two weeks in France. With a total of 910km of riding and 19.000m of climbing. 😱 Last year I did the Alps edition, and it was so spectacularly cruel and beautiful ❤😉 that I have to do it all over again...! 😍 😅 This year's racing will be all about adventure and positive momentum. The last year of hyper focused healing and rehab was very taxing on mind & body, so I'm currently running more of a decide as you feel- training program with my main coach to gain full stability and blistering energy again. So my racing schedule will be announced more spontaneously. However, as you may guess, it surely won't be any less interesting or unchallenging, hehe...! 😜🤗 Stay tuned for all the updates coming up here soon... 💪😉🙋 🏊 🚲 🏃
To be the best, you have to handle the worst 💪 ❤ ...As I'm looking at getting back into racing now, I realise more and more how tremendously my outlook on sports - and life in general - has changed the last 1.5 years after my crash and multiple surgeries... It's like coming home after a long journey in exotic countries with very different cultures... and you suddenly see how limited your original world has actually been! And how different you can act now with all the new skills and abilities aquired in the meantime. I also sometimes like to compare my healing story with the shaman initiation process of indigenous cultures. There the young shaman gets torn apart in many different pieces which get hidden in the underworld, so he has to travel there on his own to negotiate with all the evil demons in order to make himself whole again. Only then his real training of becoming a master shaman can begin. I got 'diagnosed' with an overall handicap of 30%, that's how bad injuries like mine are, statistically speaking. And I promise you, the demons I've seen in the past couple of months of negotiating my way back to health make any race or competitor seem like cute little teddy bears. . Abra Kadabra. I cannot wait to cuddle them all the way to the finish line. It's all in the mind. And always has been. 🌌
Take me back to the beach please...!! 😍 🙌 Who else is also wishing for some ice cold, fresh Vitamin Sea 🌊 in this crazy German heat wave at the moment...??! 🤔🌞 | 📷: @retroyspective #Over36Degrees #Summer #loveit❤️ #HowWeLiv
Back to normal food 😜 after 2 weeks of liver fasting by Dr. Worm. 💪 My sports doc recommend this special diet to me, consisting of 3 healthy liver-specific protein shakes a day, plus 2 big portions of vegetables, but no carbs! The aim is not primarily weight loss, but also a thorough liver detox and de-fattening, resulting in a big health boost and reset for your metabolism, hormons, immune system, etc. After a few bumpy days, I was totally celebrating it. 👌 💪 You only realise then how inefficient your system gets by all the carb-induced insulin spikes and the crap you eat! I will definitely stick to a lower carb diet in future as well. OK, after this pizza that is 😉😜 haha...! 😁 🍕 If you're also interested in a health & performance enhancing, sport-friendly diet, promoting a gentle and sustainable weight loss and long-lasting metabolism changes, go have a look at liver fasting. 😊
Your ability to turn the desires and reflections of your own heart and mind into this 3D reality game called 🌍 life... is the biggest asset one can have. 💪 I do not believe in coincidence. You have the direct power to create the universe around you. 🏆 This is not random esoteric fairy dust, but pure physics and metaphysics which surely exist as replicable mind-body relationships. A year ago, I was badly injured, officially handicapped, couldn't really walk, was bankrupt and no one believed me. Now they can basically all go fuck themselves, because today I am healthy, wealthy and wise. Hehe! 😋 💪💪 ✔ ❗💰 🤗 One day I will write a book for your convenience with all the - very wild - tricks I have collected through the process. 🤗 From the Russian healer, specific supplements, to astronaut frequency therapy... You name it, I did it. 😉 It can be very well applied to actual training, racing and recovery too. 😊 💚 Have a good day. 🙌 Go chase your dreams!! . . 📷: @retroyspective / #HowWeLiv #Softskills #GoalSetting #GetResilientAsFuck #😉 #SelfHealing
