Marie-Louise Kertzman

25 Jahre

Spät aufs "Rad gekommen"

Eine durchaus durchwachsene Beziehung zum Rad hat die junge Britin aus Surrey . Als Kind Sozius auf dem Tandem ihrer Eltern, schwor sie sich dann als Teenagerin nie wieder mit dem Rad zu fahren, da das ja echt „uncool“ sei. Doch nachdem sie von ihrem Freund zum Triathlon herausgefordert wurde, entdeckte sie ihre Liebe zum Rad. Das Rennradfahren ist für sie die schönste Disziplin bei dem Ausdauerdreikampf. Neben der L‘Etape du Tour freut sich die 25-Jährige besonders auf die Fred Whitton Challenge. Damit verbindet sie Kindheitserinnerungen, da sie mit ihren Eltern im Lake District Urlaub gemacht hat..

  • FTP Test day, and we were undecided all day whether to make it an indoor or outdoor affair. In the end, the rain that threatened didn't seem to be coming, so we decided to brave the outdoors. 
Of course, then we had a downpour ⛈️ for the whole ride. But FTP test happened anyway, and it was gnarly AF. It seems brutal conditions suit me, because I clocked a 10% increase today, versus 2 months ago. 🎉 .
Shout-out to @ttppss for yelling at me the whole way up. It definitely gave me some extra grit when it counted 🤙👌

  • We love having friends come visit us in 🇮🇹Italy, but I can promise that if you come, there will be exercise involved... 🏊‍♀️
Even if you sprained your ankle a week ago, right @ellie.silk? #champ 😘

  • Oh hey there Italy 🇮🇹👋
Back "home", and back to "normality" (not totally sure what either of those words mean anymore! 😄).
So an easy easy lunch run in between work, dreamy. Legs still remembered how to function off a bike, so there's a pleasant surprise! 🤙 .

  • What do you do the day after your biggest ever ride, when the sun is shining and you simply have to get outside..? 🌄
Trail ride the lakes, and dub it recovery, of course! 😜
Back in Italy 🇮🇹 now, definitely feeling those Post-massive event blues. However, will get back onto training again today, though I'd be lying if I said I felt in any way recovered yet from Sundays exploits... 🙈

  • The Lakes were so kind to us this last weekend, the weather could not have been more perfect. 😍💃 Leaving this place breaks my heart a little. 💔 Until next time, Cumbria. ♥️

  • Yesterday was epic. I don't even know where to start. No photo will ever do the day justice. But at least this little snap from @thatberkshirecyclist (thank you 😚) captures some of my joy. .
Before yesterday I had never ridden over 125km. Now I've ridden 185km. In one go. With 3,500m of climbing, up to 30%. I only walked once - Hardknott, you're as savage as they say, touché. 🏞️
.
I overcame a panic attack without stopping for the first time. I didn't lose my energy. I even had enough in the tank to blitz the last 25km to bits. I've never felt so strong at the end of any event before, let alone an 8hr ride! To everyone who has ever preached the importance of fueling to me: YES. You're so right. ⛽
.
Thanks a million to everyone who stuck by me or supported me yesterday. There's no way I would have done it without you. My heart is so full. Thank you @alpecincycling and everyone who makes it work. ♥️

  • Safely arrived in the Lakes. 🗻 
2 more sleeps til race day... 🚲
 Settling in for event prep, aka an amazing excuse to carbo load. 🙊 Now there's nothing left to do but settle in for the ride, take in the views (THOSE VIEWS), and try not to get whipped up by the hype. ✌️🤙

  • #tbt to last week's tempo run, made all the more challenging by Somerset's relentlessly rolling hills! 😬
Retaining any sort of run 🏃‍♀️ and swim 🏊‍♀️ training has been a toughie whilst my cycling 🚴 has ramped up and up. Balancing my desire to improve with my body's freakish ability to get ill at the drop of the hat has sometimes felt nearly impossible. But discipline and tonnes and tonnes of encouragement from most everyone around me have been my saving graces. 
So grateful to all the people close to me who have had to tolerate my absence, my tears and my craziness over the past month, when the training has really peaked. 
Here's to a little more balance after this weekend is in the bag... Maybe! 🤞😁
