tough ride!

I been super busy the last few days and not too active on the blog....

Well, i m sick! Dam!!!! i dont like this... my crohn is flaring up and it s giving me a hard time. Last weekend, i end up on the side of the road in pain and could not stay on my bike anymore, i had terrible intenstin cramp and was in a lot of pain. The next few days have not been easy as i dont have as much energy as i would want to and struggling to digest well the food.

The very annoying part is that i just started the preparation for ironman and every day count. Part of my flare up is also a problem with my left hip. I always have muscle that stop firing when i get sick like this and it become very painfull to run or even bike at some times... I dont really know how to deal with it and make it work better.....so i will try to be patient and stay very positive.

A flare up usualy affect my digestion, energy level and muscle around my hip. It can last from a few weeks to a few months.....

The good side of thing is that i do have a lot of people around...... the last few days have been fun with a few dinner out at the restaurant.....

Today was a 4.5h ride and a 50 minutes run that end up been 40min because my hip was not doing too well.... The ride was good as i made a big effort to eat so many calories and i came alive in the last 2h of the ride!

Tomorow is another try at doing a run longer than 1h...... will see how it goes!

Keep your head up dude. I have a lot of Chrone's in my family and know how shitty it can be.

Hang in there.

Take care of it, bro - I don't want to hear any whining or weak-ass excuses when I'm out in a few weeks.
