4 aug 2019 (1): 1 weeks after Nationals, one week before European Cup. SB’s turning into PB’s. Marissa getting used to international races and a season that runs through August. Cherry on the cake… selection to run in the Dutch orange vest for the first time ever. Coming from not a track background as a junior, it is very special to have the opportunity to race the 800m in Orange in Sandness next week. Well deserved, due to a stable season and a silver at Nationals.
Bianca also made her way back into Orange, with a big PB in the 400m. She will be part of the 4x400m. After a difficult, challenging last couple of years, it is a good start to be back on this level. Well done! Might have a season throught October. Unreal if you know she couldn’t even jog a lap when we started working together last November.
Sanne unfortunately had to skip the first part of the season and did a lot of shitty workouts on the bike or other alternative ways. She is on the way back with a 2.03.28 season opener in Ninove last weekend. Sharpening up and running daily again. Getting ready to try for the Doha Q.
Young kid on the block Victor Vanderwel made sure all his KMs he put in were rewarded with big PBs. He is gearing up, hoping to run in the Orange vest one day, most notably in 2021, European U23s.
At least one more month to go. Let’s see what happens.
