Two Days Off

// Juli 25th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Two Days Off // No Limit

During my two Days Off (18th and 19th July) my Friend Matze Blaul came all the Way from the Robinson Club Soma Bay to support my during my Record Attempt.

On the 19th we drove to Dahab and enjoyed Breakfast there. Afterwards we rented Motorbikes and made our Way to the Blue Hole and enjoyed some Freediving there. We made the Trip from the Bells.

In the evening we made our Way back to Sharm el Sheikh with the Motorbike. After 30km the engine stopped and we were stuck in the middle of the Sinai Mountains. After some waiting, waiting…then talking with the police and the owner of the bike he send someone with spare parts and a other bike.

In total we waited just like two hours in the Desert. If it would´nt been the last day before the record attempt it would have been more funny.

Back in Sharm we were quite tired and I went to bed very early to bed relaxed for the record attempt on the next day.

Last Training before Attempt

During my Last Training on the 17th July I was very focused. This Training was very important to me because I needed to know that I´m confident enough to go on my target depth for the record attempt. Again warum up was good and I did hangs with a dive time of 3:44 min.

I was a bit afraid my ears would not work with me but they were fine during the first two sled dives.

Then I went down for the 110m. Position, Relaxation and Equalisation all were good. Down at 110m I enjoyed the look at the bottom for a few seconds and then I inflated the ballon.

The Last Training went Perfect! And I have two days off before the record attempt.

Tomorow Matze from Robinson Club will arrive to support me on the attempt.

Unlucky Equalisation

// Juli 18th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Unlucky Equalisation // No Limit

On the 16th July I aimed for a 120m Dive. Warm up was good but somehow the equalisation was not working as it should.

In the beginning of the dives I could manage to keep the equalisation up but I had to use more power and pressure than usual.

In around 106m Depth I activated the brake cause the equalisation was not working anymore. A few second I tryed but nothing was working.

When I activeted the valve of the tank most of the air was not going into the ballon. It was going just out of the valve. But after a few seconds the ballon started to lift me up. No Problem. Otherwise I would have activated the second tank.

A bit disapointed I was after that dive cause I aimed so much on the 120m…well somehow somewhere I will manage to do that.

On Sunday  15th July I was set on Day Off so beside relaxing there is nothing to report :-)

Deeper and Deeper

// Juli 18th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Deeper and Deeper // No Limit

On the 14th July I felt very good and strong. During the day must of the Time I relaxed and then I went to Training.

The warm up dives and the the preparation dives with 60m and 80m felt very good.

Then I aimed for around 116m. The dive itself felt very good and the equalisation went good aswell. Down at the bottom I took a look at the bottom below me.

The ride back to the surface was quite fast. Now after each Dive I focus on the surface protocol towards the Judge.

Afterwards I was very happy that I could manage a 116m Dive :-)

Again, again and again

// Juli 14th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Again, again and again // No Limit

The Training Plan for the 11th was to make the proof that I´m able to do 100m Depth three Times in a row before we are moving on with another Target Depth.

The warm up dives were good , as usual and then we did 60m than 80m and finaly the 102m Depth. That Dives is another Personal Best for me and I was very happy.

In my head there is this BLUE…this Blue Water. :-)

Equalisation Work

// Juli 11th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Equalisation Work // No Limit

On the 10th July around 13:00 I picked up my girl from the airport. Finally she is here and supports me during my training. I really missed her!

Today my coaches decided to work on my equalisation skills insteed of going for another deep dive.

We did one 60m Dive and two 80m with the mouthfill charge in 10m Depth. All Dives felt good but on my first 80m I didn´t heared the alarm so I guess the charge was done deeper than 10m Depth.

It is so strange…down at 100m I have less air even thouh I charged my mouth around 25m Depth. And in 80m Depth I have air left and I charged it in only 10m Depth.

During my saftey deco at 6m with 100% my girl showed me two big barracudas.

Depth Reloaded

// Juli 11th, 2012 // Kommentare deaktiviert für Depth Reloaded // No Limit

On The 9th July I spent my morning in Dahab. I was driving my motorbike and enjoyed the day. Around noon I went back to Sharm el Sheikh for serious training. Even thou I was just one day off but I missed the blue water a lot.

When I arrived in the Divecenter I changed into my wetsuit and went into the sea. I really enjoy my warmup dives a lot.

For the Deep Dives we went first 60m then 80m and then finaly 100m again.

It was very important for me the redo the 100m and they felt really nice and smooth.
