Today was the Canadian National championship! I woke up super early at 5am and got on the road at 5;45am for my first real ride since about 6 weeks of rest. I rode the first section of the IMC course from my home in penticton to osoyoos to go watch the championship. Unfortunutly, I m didnt get to defend my national title that i won last year on the same course.
Mat Seeley won the man race leading most of the day and Cynthia destroyed the women field as she was in a league of her own. She also broke the course record at the same time. Very impressive. I was on the side line to cheer.......but honestly, that was very hard time for me at many level.....i wish i was competing with them.
Well, today was one of my first real training session, 3h ride. I m not 100% healthy but i m getting better. I might have some more medical test to do but I m sick of been on the side line and cheer. I decided that i will take the 49 days left from now till Ironman Canada to get back to ironman shape and be at the start line. I m coming back from a rought patch and it s a different challenge now for me. I dont expect to be a contender for the win on race day but i will sure not be on the side line either.... i will be racing.
alright time for bed, my new modify reduce training ironman prep is starting tomorow and i need the rest.
