1500m...

todya i skate a 1500m...1m55.something....still not so good ice, and still this damm altitude problem i can t solve. why my body don t understand how to adapt here? it is just 1000m and i m like a slow junior. so after this race i went bike 30min ...important to recovery a little better. after 1500m legs are full of lactic...so it is never bad to active system to clean a bit...specially cause tomorow i race 1000m so if i don t want to die after 400M i better do it. also i did some resistance stretching again this morning after breakfast...i work my (brain) armsring...and my (bladder) gluteus muscle group... i could feel the difference in the warm up this morning. my hip was more free to move. ... tonight i eat pizza with colin speaking about all classic, our loves, tehcnics, the pizza^^ and results from other skaters. ...then i sharp my skate...at the speed of light...

ice training and bike

today was cool day again...at 9am on the ice after a good long warm up...causé 2°c...
then 15lap, 2x200m ...1x300m, 1X400m 1X600m 1X400m and few start...then laps easy to cool down and try to understand technical thinks.
i start to skate in lower position now, my legs get use to it. i can put more power in my hip too, i also start to look more in front which is good otherwise my butt go up when i look down and my back get too round.
i m also learing how to move better my left arm in corner...

then i went to the gym, core training, like 6 differents exercice, plus some for lower back, push up...about 50... then bike 30min (boring)

in th eafternoon i biked again 1H30 but was less boring cause colin was there to speak and witek too...we watch xmen wolverine origin at same time...but my attention was going away from the movie, to think of technic...i m getting addicted to solve technical problem...in fact i know i will do this till it is done gone. there is no other option.

slide board and inline

yesterday after breakfast i went direct to the gym. doing some slide board exercice with a mirror to correct technique. joey mantia is also doing this. i recommand you to go on his blog and check , also super interesting information: real champion to share all this.
so after slide board, i went do some low walk for about 30minutes...4Min down , 1 rest....
after was time to go teach the kids...wonderfull training with them. they learn fast,they did 30km , with tehcnical advice every lap ... amazing difference in technic at the end.
in the afternoon, they did 20km again , then slide board, super leg, slide board and core... mainly all based on technic. i m so surprised that frenhc skater are not educate at all about technic. they are just skating without thinking of it;... i m happy i can educate them about this as i love it. looking all details and fix i can.

in the afternoon and evening i went with Joe the coach of artistic skating, to look how they train...super cool speaking with joe to improved the training. it is just as interesting to work this. i meet also a young talent 18years old, he looked so much like me at same age. just doing doing doing again and again his jump, till it is done good, smiling all the time. very award of his outside , but no feeling form the inside... interesting talk with him and his coach.
