Friday - June 17

Bike
  • 19m 56s

Here is what was supposed to be the activation ride =/

What a sucky way to start the day. Steve and I met at a new lake close to both our places. How handy it is to have a place to swim open water close by we thought. 

We got there, changed into our wetsuit and got ready to swim, when someone came by. The guy told us that he was working there and that we were not allowed to swim in the lake :( 

We went back to the car, changed into our cycling gear to go for a short ride. 20 min or so was the plan, with some intensity to get ready for tomorrow's race. When we got to the turn around Steve crashed with his triathlon bike :( I could not get by him since I was too close, so I crashed too. I have almost nothing, some scratch on my right knee but no problem at all and my bike is ok too besides a scratch on the left side. 

Sadly for Steve though, his bike frame looks like it is cracked and good for the garbage :( He also has much more road rash than me. That sucks bad the day before the first race of the season. I feel bad for him ...

No need to tell you that we skipped the running part of the set.

Plan was to do the hills on Champlain but I was short on time to drive there. So I rode to Val-Belair and did the cote de l'Eglise three times from the stop to the stop. This should give something close to what the coach wanted me to do.

Climbing : 343 meters

Heading to the pool, then a breakfast with some friends. I will ride some hills tonight, I think the coach likes to see me suffer :p Between all that I have to fit my day at work.

Legs are still sore from yesterday's run, lets hope that some magic will make them like new for my ride ;)

I was feeling awesome during this race, which was really good for me because my last two speed workout sucked bad. I got back home with a happy feeling :)

The club was heading to the lake for a bunch of mini triathlon to practice transition while training today. I decided not to go swim, my shoulder was not that great on Thursday morning and I didn't want to push my luck 1 week before my first tri of the year. 

Since I was not going to swim, I will go bike then run instead this morning. Coach has some nice speed work on the plan for me. My legs still do not feel that great, I can't say why they feel tired like that but I sure hope that it will get better fast. That would not be a nice feeling heading to a race that tired.
