I´ve been racing in triathlon since 1994, where I raced a short distance triathlons and duathlons in junior category and was in Czech national team. I had a few good results as junior (8. th place in European champ.) but with a drafting I started to seek a longer distances, because I was strong cyclist and I hate to work in front of pack and than be slow on the run.
I was planning to race my first Ironman race before I was 18, but I was too young and I had to wait. Meanwhile I learned to ride a K1 kayak and raced in Quadriathlon ( swim,kayak, bike, run ) and become many times World and European champion.
In 1999 I moved to San Diego for a winter to train for my first long distance season. My first race was Ironman Austria, where I won in 8:43 and got a slot to Kona.
That year in Kona I won my age-group and overall finished on 42. nd place. (Faris Al Sultan finished 3. rd.)
Since 1999 Ironman become a my main focus and I was racing as Pro till 2005, when I ,, turned age-groups,, again.
In 2004 I was in a cover of Triathlete magazine road to Kona and this magazine inspired me with name of Road2kona.
25 years of traininng and racing as PRO giving me a know-how which is really usefull and it´s something which is important for me and my client as well.
When I started do a coaching in 1999 we used a Excel and Word for a training plans. Today it´s with a better equiipment much easier.
Today I use a Garmin heart rate monitors, wattmeters and most important TRAINING PEAKS. With this software I can easily plan, control and analyze trainings.
