Back to the roots

30. May 2018

Back to the roots

 

After the season is before the season. I'm back in the middle of the preparation and already had a great course with the training group 1 on the Stubai Glacier with the new head coach Andreas Felder.

The motto was "back to the roots" or "back to basics".
On small, self-made jumps we started the preparation with 20 meter jumps. 
That’s special after 253.5 meters at the end of the season =)
I had a lot of fun with the teammates and even with these short jumps there were already some insights.

It's really interesting to jump with very little speed. Like jumping as a child.
It feels a bit like slow motion. Being precise in this setting is very, very difficult. I noticed little things details, which I didn’t recognize at high speed.

How this looks, I can even show you:
We already had a similar program in April during my "Ski Jumping Day".

I spend the day with 20 fans. We built a small ski jump and then jumped. It was a wonderful day and I hope I can do it again next year.

The fact that I am officially no longer in the national team, by the way, changes nothing for the training everyday. There are fixed rules, who is in the national team and who is not. I just had too few points and that's why I'm officially out - a normal process. Nevertheless, the training group 1 of course not only consists of the three national team jumpers, but is filled up with the jumpers behind. Among others with me. 

Of course, as with any new coach, some things change. Structure and processes change slightly, the team of coaches is now a little smaller. We’ll connect quickly and I am highly motivated to work towards succeeding together again.

Next step in the next few weeks, in addition to creating the physical conditions for the new season, is a training camp in Eisenerz. I will almost completely run the summer Grand Prix this season - little tactics, much competition training.

The goals have hardly changed in contrast to last season. It's about showing good jumps and having fun jumping. Of course I want to show my best jumps in competition and the home World Championships in Seefeld is something very special for me.

The Olympiaregion Seefeld is like a living room for me, here is my training base. Of course, for us as a nation, it's also about becoming stronger together and aiming for team-gold. Personally, I wish for a season without injuries - the last one was a long time ago! Then the jumps and the results come on their own, maybe even the 54th World Cup victory.

On Saturday, by the way, I'm at the Life Ball . This great event celebrates life, the moment. The Life Ball shows that it is possible to be able to break away from difficult, challenging times and to enjoy life. An inspiration for training, competition - and life in general.

Yours,
GS
