is it 2009 already??? i hope so!!!!

Well, i took a bit of a break from blogging. A nice trip to hawaii, seeing my friends race and learn a little more about this race and this mysterious place. I m now back to Las Cruces and moved to La Villa Del La Montoya. It s really been a lot of fun to live with Danny and Misha and there perfect dog Jordy!!!

I have took a lot of rest and i m now starting back moving and trying to regain health and some fitness. So far this week, i have done 3 swim, 3 swim and 3 bikes.... Nothing spectacular but moving along and getting the work done slowly and getting back into a routine with early bed as much as i can and healthy eating choices.

There is some changes this season with a few new sponsors that i will talk about later but i m happy to be back with Cervelo and 2XU, The Bike Barns and the complete city of penticton!!!

Another change that make me very sad is that i will not longer be working with Paulo as my coach. I m not a very easy athlete to coach as i have my french canadian carachter and flaw. I m also extremly hard on the people surronding me as my goals are very improtant to me and i ask a lot from them and hold them to very high standars. We have some different vision and could not find a commun ground so to part away was the best choice at this time.

I want to take the time to thank him for all the guidance and succes i had in the last 2 year. During the 2007 season, i won a national title, broke the 9h mark at ironman and a finish second a ironman canada (8;39) and a big part of these succes are because of paulo's contribution. I have learn so much with him and had one hell of a ride winning many races and having a blast. I still have a lot to learn and do hope to continu by reading is blog and peaking on his athletes training schedules!!!

I will take the month of november to set a good routine, rebuild fitness and stay on the healthy path. I will also take my time to reflect on what direction i will take and the way to get there. Thank you for reading and your support over the years! There is more to come!!!
