Well, this week, i made the decision to end my season 2008 and not take part in any other races this year. I have struggle a lot over the past 7 months with Ulcerative colitis that keep hitting my hard and getting me very weak and sick. On top of that, i have developpe a gluten alergy and have been struggling even more learning to eat properly and be able to have enough energy to train.
My training wasnt been going too well in the past few months and i do beleive taking a step back right now is the best way for me to move forward. That wasnt a fun decision to take but i feel very releif to have taken it and not feel the pressure to prepare for another race right now.
So what's now? I will sleep a lot! I will do about 1h of exercice a day to keep moving and not get in too bad of a shape but i will keep it very unstructure. I swimming regularly with the MNSU swim team and will run and bike once awile...
I will be racing very early next season...and most likely a start of the season far away from canada/usa.... more soon!
Ok, tomorow morning, i m leaving for Kona hawaii where i will be supporting my teamates, representing my sponsors and also refuelling mentaly and physicaly. I havent taken vacation in years and the october month is mine...i will rest a lot and rebuild my health...
Thank you for my sponsor that are sticking with me...and those that still answer my emails even after this disastrous season....
