49 days....................................................

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.

49 days?!?!?!
I keep telling myself 7 weeks, but 49 days sounds a whole lot closer.
Well, I just started freaking out a little more.
You better run your ass off at IMC or I'm gonna hunt you down...

AWESOME. Glad to hear you'll be on the start line again this year, bro. I'll be back in the car again, playing leapfrog.

49 days is plenty of time to prepare...

BEAT GORDO!
