1st day test in calgary

this morning wad test day at the oval. i raced a 500m in 36.54 so new PB....cool and then a 1000m in 1m10.82 damm close to french record again...but still 0.07 faster needed.
back pain is old story now, i start to feel some power again.
tomorow i race 500m again and 1500m...

calgary

now i m in calgary, since monday...not so many news cause my computer crashed with a windows problem...probably a virus...so it is gonna take time to fix it.
so what happen here...i feel the altitude so i didn t put intensity in the training so far. i also feel my lower back...so i went to a chiropracter which did a super job. he put niddels of about 10cm in my back ...the my muscle start to relax a lot more. i wake up this morning and the pain was gone, just the muscle little bit sore fro; the treatment but in a good way.
on the ice i could do 300m 700m and 800m (lap 27,8 27,5) so was ok for now.
tonight was lot of snow falling in calgary, super nice....

winner hamar 1500m

calgary here i m




so monday morning, we took a bus to the airport. we fly to calgary with a pit stop in frankfurt, long nice trip so i could watch 2 very good movies: my sister keep...so so nice...and food inc...hum: make me think even more how important is the food. we should be more carrefull about what we eat.

today monday, i went on the ice with alexis...4X8min easy. the ice is really super fast here. it is a different world, almost not the same sport^^.
in the afternoon i run easy at 130bpm for 40min. 1st day in calgary mean little altitude adaption , so i have to be carefull and not go to intensity.

tehcnically, i took more time to skate, more time to put pressure on my skate. i stand little more straight with my upper body on the skate so i can seat easier on the back of the skate: i feel the push better like this.

hamar 1500m....humm...problem

today i race the 1500m, 1M49etc....not so good. i could n t skate normally cause i have a little pain in my back and i couldn t find what it was. my straight line was terrible, i couldn t put my hips over my skate...i was super stiff.

in the evening i could see a phisio that helped me super nicely for this. he find out that my right hip was blocked and that my left hip was rotating the wrong direction when i bend in front...

few exercice and the problem seems to be gone....but the good result of the race is gone too. now i have to learn from it and think about calgary.

ranking 12th...

day between races...


today i don t race...in most of the world cup my program is 1 dya race, 1 day rest, 1 day race...i like this.
so this morning i could train on ice before the races start from 8h15 to 9h00...i did 8laps with tristan loy , then 2X200m...then 1x600m...which was good cause my lap time for flying lap was 26,09 inner line...fastest this year so far. normally i did 26,5 always.
so that was good session, i could sit more than usual, thinking a lot of pushing as far as i can with my left leg in corner then sit again , and again and ....again...and even when i remember it, colin tell it again every lap.
^^
then i went on bike 30min....and i watch the 500m B group...and i spoke with friends.
today i meet Nora Vega which was one of the fastest skater on quads and inline in the past^^..she is a legend in argentina. it is nice she come watch ice event and help develop this sport.
i also meet Derek parra few days ago....big exemple for my generation. world champion inline, quads, and olympic champion on ice....he is now the coach of chad...
check one of his youtube video...

then i need for french standard which is a top16...time or ranking...my time was number 31 in berlin...so i still have 15 guys to beat....in berlin i would have need a 1m47 low for example...

shani is an artist

just a little message cause after 1500m race of shani davis i have to tell u that this guys is too good. he is not a sportman anymore on my eyes...he is more he put skating to level of ART when he skate....now he is an artist

summary 1st world cup

so now i m back in holland...here is the story of what happen last few days...

thursday...i was training doing some 200 300 400 with colin to check the technic. i need some speed cuase tomorow i race the 1000m...i hope 1m11 something...

friday...1st i receive some sms to wish me good weekend. antoine belzanne and his familiy send me a super nice support message. antoine is the best inline skater in france in junior. i was really happy form this message i enjoyed it and it make me better in my skating and in life. few hours later i was on the starting line for the 1000m...and i did 1m12.12 that is 0,8sec faster than my best time in europe so far so it show i m in progress. in sprint every 0,1 is good to take. so my opening was 17,4...pretty good for me then 1st lap 26,6sec very good for me ...then 28,0 ...damm i m supposed to hold more speed... so what happen??? simple i just push the straight full...like the turn so i didnt had energy to skate storng in the turn which is where i m suppose to built my speed. i learn a lot in this race. now i have to switch my mind fomr inline to ice. i must not focus on what is outside like i naturaly do...but go more insise...stay quite...quite in mind to go faster.
so main poit, now i built turn like crazy , and relax my straight cause that is not where i make speed. if i work it i will loose speed.

saturday, i was not racing, so in training i work on it with colin 2x700m with just full speed in turn , almost nothing in straight...it is good. my head strart to get the message... after ice 30min bike as always.

sunday...;i race 1500m....1m48.61 damm good for me i did what i had to do and finish 10th in ranking...only 1sec form 1st ..level is super high here too. so i open 24,2 which is correct, then 1st lap 26,9 which was the plan...1nd lap: 28,4 i relax little too much then ...but then 3rd lap 29.0 was really good...it felt really good. i got feelings in the turn i never got before on the ice.i put my left leg little more to the inside to get a longer push and it worked great. i could built my turn much more....after race 30min bike and...doping control... in the afternoon 45Min bike

today monday...wake up at 7h30...did some abs and push ups...then breakfast...then pack bags, try to put all in the car^^ and drive to holland...
