August 2017..and the world keeps turning

Time is an illusion. You can measure it with watches, but you cannot slow it down or stop it. It is ticking and ticking and sometimes it is too fast for you.

The PWA event in El Medano is just around the corner and besides all those emotional things happening around me, I try my best to get fit and ready for the competition - got a new training schedule and focused more on my jumping.

I am now training regularly at HHometown fitness, a small and personal gym owned by Joe. He is really motivated in pushing my fitness level to increase my windsurfing level.
