hamar



tema pursuit in hamar was better but still not great. we made a plan so i dont lead cause of last week end, but i was feeling better and then alexis and benj had to do too much to compete for a better time.
i still need more training so i can understand more about this ice technic that is still not coming in my body. i see what i have to do but i can t make my body do it^^...but still i feel i understand more than the other years^^...

berlin...hamar

last week end , i raced in berlin. 6m40.1 on 5000m....grrrr 0,1sec from qualification time for the 10km in hamar. anyway i m happy wiht it for now. after 5weeks on the ice 6m40 is my best 5000m race in europe. i have to enjoy this even if there is still a lot to do. this year my mind is more open to learn technic. i start to understand thing on ice i could not even see before. it s interesting.
sara is skating super great so i m really happy for her.

the team pursuit was terrible for me. after 4 laps i died like i never did before, that was really a day "without" for me. now i m in hamar for a 2nd team race...

medical test^^


this week i did my medical test. it s a serie of test to check the health of athlete that we have to do in france 2 or 3 times a year. sometimes we get interesting information to follow our shape.
good news this year is that i m 5kg lighter than last year at the same period and 3% less fat. it show me i eat better. good food is important for sport and last year i made mistake on this topics.
it s also probably a good reason why i was feeling better on the ice last week.

my heart rate when i rest was 44...which is also good. normally my lowest is 36 and my max is 209...

im still 183cm high^^ small chance that this value except when i will get too old...but not yet as some people try to make me feel^^ (not my friends^^)

blood value, i didn t get them yet...may be in few days.

6m49.13


and the result is 6m49.13...which is good as i needed to do under 6m50...
i couldn't really do faster after just 5days on the ice but important point is done, i did minimum standard for world cup.

1st test of season 2010 2011

after a week on the ice, it's time for a 5km test tonight. main goal this season is to have a good team poursuit for france...
tristan loy is now main coach and we have new coming skaters...
