Selma Yarkin

41 Jahre

Eingefleischter Tour-Fan

Am 4. Juli 1987 fuhr das Peloton der Tour de France durch ihre Heimatstadt Eppingen in Baden-Württemberg. Während all die anderen Kinder von der Werbekarawane fasziniert waren, bewunderte die damals zehnjährige Selma die Rennradfahrer auf ihren filigranen Maschinen und war fasziniert vom „Surren der Rennräder und dem Speed, der an mir vorbeizog“. Doch erst viele Jahre später legte sie sich selbst solch ein schönes Rennrad zu; und unternimmt mit diesem nicht nur Touren rund um Köln, sondern hat auch schon Ironmans bestritten.

  • ⠀LAST LONGER RIDE ⠀
⠀
before @letapedutour felt pretty good. I hope I feel next week the same like today. That would be perfect. Only one more week and I will know how my form will be and if I can push this big adventure to the finish line. Now I want to know and can’t wait for it - I am really excited!! 💪🏻🚴🏻‍♀️😊

  • ⠀WHERE IS SUMMER? ⠀
⠀
I was cycling long long today because it was kind of chilly this morning. It felt a little bit like fall and I caught a little rain shower, too 🤷🏻‍♀️ I had pretty good legs anyway. Tomorrow I gonna do the last longer ride before @letapedutour ⠀

will be the last climb of the @letapedutour (category H) before the finishline. Swipe to see the climb 😉
This is gonna be a tough climb and I am already getting nervous thinking about this climb. Before this climb we have two others climbs, category 1 and 2. First survive these two climbs and then pushing up the „last“ km to the finishline 😬😅🙈
⠀
I am in the Tour de France Panini Game now. Do you wanna change stickers? 🤷🏻‍♀️😁

  • ⠀PUSH ⠀
⠀
This is one of my favorite pics of the training camp in Caldaro with my Team @alpecincycling in spring. It’s not because it’s so beautiful, its because I can remember the pain in my legs pushing up a 27% hill and in advance of this hill my legs were already empty from pushing it uphill really bad. Until the training camp, I had no hills in my legs at all and doing this ride, almost killed me 😅 I’ve pushed and pushed it and Mr. Ludewig was pushing me up the hill, too but then at the middle of the 27% hill, first my legs shut down, I thought my pulse will explode and then my head shut down, too. I klicked out and stoped. First time I had to get of the bike on a hill in my cycling career 😅 I just couldn’t do one push further ☠️ So Joerg was taking my bike and took it all the way up the hill, which I found was really impressive and I was sitting in the Team car and was driving up the hill 😬🙈🤣 swipe to see more pics 🙈😅 ⠀
Even i couldn’t make it up that hill, I like that memory. Since then I was training a lot and I hope I can make it up all the hills at the @letapedutour or does someone wants to push me up there?? 😬😉😅 ⠀11days to go....😅🙈🎉 ⠀

  • ⠀FOCUSING⠀
⠀
on @letapedutour NOW - it’s only 11 more training sessions and then it’s time to push my limits. I am wondering how I will do at this tough ride. I’ve never ridden so much altitude in only 135km and so much altitude at all. I hope I can push it up to the finish line in Val Thorens. Until then, I will finish my training, eat good, sleep well/enough and try to prepare mentally for this amazing cycling adventure. I am glad I will have my team @alpecincycling around me, when experiencing this ride!!! Suffering together is so much more fun 😉

I’ve reached yesterday. Within 6 months and since I have been lazy in Jan/Feb I can say most of it in 4 months. For some of you guys it’s nothing because you already have the double or more, for me it’s a lot. As a full time working, single mum every training unit has to be planned and if it’s not on the @wahoofitnessofficial kickr, I have to be flexibel and see if my girl has a sports class, meets a friend etc. where I can cycle. So it’s not just jumping on my bike whenever I want to. It’s more catching the chance of having some spare time and I jump on my bike and GO! So that’s a lot of the time the reason I ride by myself, because I jump on the bike when there is time. Also that Most of the training units,I just have the training time to ride. No time for socializing after a ride, to drink something and relax. I have to pick up my girl and be a mum - a proud mum 😍😊
Anyway, it’s fun to go cycling and I enjoy it to the fullest after my long break of 7 years. And already In the second season after this break I cracked the jackpot and have this great chance to be part of @alpecincycling - still unbelievable and I am thankful for that 😊 Have a great MONDAY 🙌🏻
