Gorgeous weather to ride :) So I went for a quick 40k before diner.

Sport
  • Stretching
  • 15m
Foam rolling and some stretching for my ITB this morning instead of going out and run by this GORGEOUS (Gorgeous for me at least, sunny with no winds and 38F) morning I just hope that this freaking ITB will heal fast  
I went to my chyro yesterday and he gave me the permission to run but nothing more then 10k. I could have gone this morning but I was scared to hurt myself again and with the Duathlon Sunday I figured it was not a good time I will probably run a little bit Thursday morning to see how the legs feels.

Saturday - May 9

Swim
  • 25m
  • 750.00 meters

I swam around 25 minutes and according to google map more or less 750 meters. Water was freezing, I'd say 55 maybe. The worst was my face, it was really cold the first time I put it in the water.

I am not sure if it's because the water was cold or because I was swimming faster than usual but I had way less breath than I normally do while swimming.

Run
  • 1h 45m
  • 17.75 kms
  • 05m 55s /KM

Long run moved from tomorrow to today since I anted to go swim OW this afternoon and I wanted to have a long ride tomorrow. Lets see if I will get everything done now ;)

The ITBand made itself clear that it was still unhappy with last week PR :p

Here's a pic from the OWS. You can look in my album to see more of them :)

Masters

As most of you know this year will be my first year as a Triathlete, I am really thrilled about this. Every time I go out for a run, a ride of a swim I am always greatfull that I can do this, that I have the chance to get out and enjoy this wonderful sport that we all love so much. 
For the second year in a row I decided to raise money for Leucan, a charity that helps the kids who have cancer. They help them and their familly to go through the sickness with different activities, they give money to the research and a lot of other things.
Today a guy with who I am working came to my office and gave me a cheque, with a really good amount of money. He then told me "Please remember Marie-Christine East when you will be out there training and racing, she died a couple years ago from Leucemia" She was his niece and she died 3 years ago, I have been really touched by this and she will be on my mind when I will be out there racing and training.
I have been raising money for Leucan for two years now, and I know that what I do helps others and I am proud of it. But it was the first time that someone that I know told me that a kid close to him had had the cancer, and that sadly she died.
Marie-Christine East, you'll be on my mind and you will be remembered.
