‘A different sport every time’
The season is over, but it's training as usual for Paulien Harmsen, researcher with Biobased Products. Five times a week, and usually several different sports every day. The variety is what she enjoys. 'Just running five times a week is so boring.' She only enters a couple of competitions a year. Quarter triathlons are her thing: swimming 1 km, cycling 40 km and running 10 km. In Hengelo this summer she set a personal record of 2 hours and 24 minutes.
