As you already know my goal is to be on the starting line of the Ironman World Championship in Kona (USA). So, without wandering around the bush, the first of these 4 weeks of loading we will give priority to swimming under the orders of Bart Kizieriwski (Technical Director of swimming at the CN.Sabadell), and following the orders of my coach and teacher Carles Tur, where we will stand with a 70.000m of water, 280km of 35 cycling on foot and a couple of gym sessions.
